Andrew Yang a presidential candidate that traveled the world. He wanted to inform the people of the up and coming crisis, the pandemic. The world is not prepared for the crisis coming. He tried to warn the people while on the campaign trail about the lack of work and being at home with no funds. What Yang was saying to the people was to be found ridiculous and absurd. To be sure, fear of an impending global pandemic resulting from a novel coronavirus was not the reason Mr. Yang spent months insisting the federal government provide American adults with a universal basic income of $1,000.00 per month (Stevens and Paz, 2020).
Mr. Yang ended his campaign and started the fight for adopting a permanent plan for American workers during the pandemic. Even though, he felt that his proposal of a $1,000.00 a month would be a starting point in easing the hit of the economy. His proposal was seeing as absurd and ridiculous but not now. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand (Revelation 1:3). While the American people need a financial lift. The House is playing games over who all receive monies during these transactions.
There were other talks of direct deposit to enforce the social distancing. There were several Senators such as Bernie Sanders, Michael Bennet, and Mitt Romney who weigh in on conversations of stimulus packages for the people. They were in agreeance of helping the American people during an unforeseen event. Mr. Yang made the first proposal of what we thought was a ridiculous idea that came somewhat to pass.
Stevens, Matt and Isabella Grullon Paz (March 2020). Andrew Yang’s $1,000-a-month-idea May Have Seemed Absurd Before. Not Now.

This class has been very informative and enhanced my knowledge on the purpose of public policy issues, analysis, and implementation. It has opened up my eyes to see how hard and stressful it is for the government to put laws in place to fix the public issues in society. In analysis it is imperative to have the facts and research the issues. There is likely a prior history of the same issues that can help with the analogy. It is helpful to break it down in steps: define the problem, establish the goal, identify alternatives, display, and select among the alternatives, and monitor and analyze. It is best to consider efficiency and equity by doing what is best for everyone. The more goals established makes the assessment more complex. However, the policy itself is more specific with several effects. It is a good idea to evaluate regulations that results in an economic impact. The impacts could be good and bad on the state/local level and for society. The risks and benefits of policy should be determined. One should choose policies that maximizes benefits (Weimer & Vining, 2011). This class has been good for knowledge, career, and beneficial for a citizen. It gives one a look into the difficult world of politics. It also can help one determine if they want to continue a career in politics. The average person does not think about the time and effort put in to resolve public policy issues. I am thankful and respect the officials who make these decisions for our society. “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:15, New Living Translation).

RESPONSE 3:) SHELBY
The emptiness of MacArthur’s boast that his troops would deter the Japanese on the shores of the Philippines had been recognized to President Roosevelt and senior Army officers in Washington. They knew that, after nine hours of advance notice of such a possibility, MacArthur had undermined the Philippines’ safety by causing his powerful airpower to be removed on the ground. They also recognized that MacArthur had inflicted needless pain on his soldiers and did not prepare Bataan for a long fight. MacArthur noticed that his departure for Australia could be confused by his deserted forces. He called for time to plan the groundwork for his departure from the battlefield with his senior staff officers. MacArthur offered his exhausted soldiers the false expectation of reinforcements before quitting them. MacArthur told them that, with good air cover, several thousands of fresh troops were on their way to relieve the beleaguered American and Philippine armies at Bataan. He ordered them to fight before the reinforcements had arrived. A cruel deception was the promise of a relief force from the United States, and MacArthur recognized it to be so. On 11 March 1942, MacArthur left for Australia under night cover with his wife, his son, the nanny of his son, and a large contingent of his nearest and most loyal staff officers. On 11 March 1942, MacArthur left for Australia with his wife, his mother, and a large contingent of his most loyal staff officers. While ordered to take only one senior staff officer with him to Australia by General Marshall, MacArthur disobeyed the order and left the Philippines with fourteen staff officers, including Major General Richard Sutherland, his Chief of Staff. Renowned for their lack of military experience, these staff officers became known as the “Bataan Gang” in Australia. MacArthur left behind his hungry soldiers, female army nurses, and many people to face the offended by the American and Filipino troops’ stubborn opposition. With MacArthur’s departure, Major General Jonathan M. Wainwright, with the provisional rank of Lieutenant General and the assured certainty that he and his command were condemned to death or capture, took control of the American Army Forces in the Philippines.
McArthur should have taken the wounded and his female nurses, not the elite soldiers. Those soldiers should have stayed behind to assist the sick and starving soldiers preparing to fight. It appears that he felt “since they appear to be dying” just let them fight. Survival of the fittest.

The role of mentor has developed through the ages from the ancient Greek times. Mentorship generated from ancient Greek. Odysseus in Homer’s Odyssey left for war and left his family with a trusted friend that became a “mentor”. This family friend Athena the goddess of wisdom provided advice on how to deal with problems. (Shafritz, Jay M., & Borick, Christopher P., pg. 212, 2011) The art of mentoring simply is about being a positive impact in someone life during a hard time and helping to guide them on a path of success whether you’re in the sample working field or not. Mentorship can be in the work environment or a spiritual mentor to help you navigate through life. Over the ages mentorship developed. Conner and Eisenhower were an example of this transition. Conner took notice of Eisenhower after he graduated from West Point in 1915. (Shafritz, Jay M., & Borick, Christopher P. (2011) Eisenhower worked with Conner and he often gave him challenging assignments to develop his mental agility. Those tactics matured him for future assignments and challenges. It pushed Eisenhower to be a strategic thinker. Conner’s training paid that knowledge was displayed when Eisenhower was the Chief of Staff to McArthur. Conner not only offered his guidance to ensure Eisenhower had a successful military career but he continuously checked on him to see how things were going and offered advice. The art of mentorship is still the same and the purpose is still the same. We all need a mentor to teach us things they’re already experienced to keep us from making the same mistakes and to remind us when we are doing the right thing when we feel discouraged.
“One generation shall command your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.” (Psalm 145:4, English Standard Version) God instructs us to speak to the generations that come after us and explain to them the work we’ve done good and bad so they know what to continue doing as well as what behavior to correct moving forward.
