Opinions on often debated topics

Okay so remember when i posted my editorial? Well our teacher gave us some suggestions and there was a lot of them, some of them i answered to get some brief ideas of what i would say if i made them into my editiorial and i saved them deciding at some point i'd blog about them, so here there are! Enjoy!

1.   Should boys and girls be in separate classes?

Uh, I don’t see what the point of this is. If you’re talking about sexual harassment then let’s just say it all comes down to responsibility. And you know being caged up from the other gender makes it harder when you get out in the world. I mean you have to be able to interact with people of all types. And you don’t see people separating brothers and sisters at home so I don’t see what the problem is!

2.   Should teenage girls be allowed to get birth control without the permission of their parents?

Yes. Now I know it is bad that they may be misbehaving and rebelling their parents authority but think about it. Kids rebel to their parent’s all the time. So if one decides to go do something foolish, well it’s better to have the birth control than not have it and have the possibility of getting pregnant right?

3.   Should music with curse words be allowed at school dances?

Okay, this I’m a little torn on. I would say yes because even though cussing may be banned or whatever if you’re in public school, and you listen to music then you’ve heard it all. Plus, if the kids are listening to it in the first place it doesn’t matter anymore! Because they’ve already heard it. And you know if over protective parents have a problem with it then they can just not let them go I mean really! Besides they’re going to hear it at some point, you just need to tell them earlier in their lives to make sure they understand that they aren’t appropriate. And sometimes kids don’t even realize what the singer is saying or that they’re even saying a bad word in till you point it out! But then having kids that aren’t allowed to go because of the music is a little mean to them and unfair.

4.   Should public schools begin the day with a silent prayer time?

ABSOULUTELY NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE AND START RELIZING THAT THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD WHO DO NOT HAVE THE SAME BELIEFS THAT YOU DO!!!!!!!! IT IS PUBLIC SCHOOL AND THERE FORE IT CAN NOT BE INTERUPTED BY RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS!!!! BE RESPECTFUL OF ALL THE OTHER RELIGIONS OUT THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can do that all you want in private school. And you know what? If Prayer is that important to you, then kids can do it by themselves and you should be doing it with them at the breakfast table. If you aren’t and think you should be depending on the government to enforce your religion then you don’t care enough to do it yourself and therefore you don’t believe either. In the privacy in your own home or at church, that’s what church is for. You don’t have to pray in school you can do it anywhere you like but it shouldn’t be forced upon people who don’t believe in god or don’t believe in the same beliefs as you. I understand that sort of feeling a responsibility spreading the word and stuff but I just don’t think it’s right to shove your religion in other people’s faces.

5.   Should students have to wear uniforms?

No, clothes are a freedom of expression, while though they can be equalizers for kids that are under privileged, freedom of expression is on the bill of rights

6.   Should people have to get a license to become parents?

Oh, my, goodness, NO WAY AMERICA IS A FREE COUNTRY OKAY? I don’t want the government in my personal affairs of who I’m getting married to or telling me I can’t have a child or taken away that child because I’m not qualified to be a parent, not every parent can be perfect. In fact there is no perfect parent. (except my parents of course lol :D) that’s just one of the most idiotic things I’ve ever heard! I mean seriously!

7.   Should people be allowed to curse on daytime television?

Back to the bill of rights, if you don’t want your kids watching it then you can in force it yourselves! They got every right to cuss like a dock sided sailor if they wanna! They have the freedom of speech and expression so suck it up. Kids cuss in school so I don’t think it’s that bad comparatively. And you may THINK your kids don’t know cuss words but trust me, they do. OH and I just realized something, during the day, EVERYONE IS AT SCHOOL DUH DUR, so really It would be nighttime that you would need to restrict. But really you don’t need to restrict anything at all.

8.   Should students learn about world religions in public schools?

Sure, they can learn about religions if they want. But I think that actually TEACHING the religion is wrong. Learning about different cultures is fun and if you’re scared that your kids will “convert” Then you don’t have a good enough relation to say they were that religion. To just learn about an religion isn’t wrong it helps you except people for who they are. And if you don’t want your kids learning about the world then your being a hypocrite

9.   Should female construction workers earn the same wages as males?

UM YES! Why wouldn’t they get the same wages! HUH HUH HUH????? WOMEN ARE JUST AS GOOD AS MEN AND IN SOME CASES WE”RE BETTER! I don’t understand why they wouldn’t that’s just being racial!

10. Should people be allowed to keep pit-bull dogs?

Yes! If they give attention and love and take care of them and train them, then you know what? I don’t see where the freaking problem is! Some people use their dogs responsibly and just because one person does something wrong that doesn’t mean that everyone should be punished

11. Should the driving age be raised to twenty-one?

Uh, no. I mean this is all about the person. If they can show that they’re responsible, they should be allowed to drive and how are collage students going to get somewhere? You gonna spend even more state funding on buses!?! “oh let’s car pool” Oh wait a minute you just made it illegal now I don’t have any friends that can even drive to school. And definitely if you live in a rual area or a developing city that’s not like Dallas or Newyork but is not like Kansas, you can’t get anywhere without a car! Not everyone is fit enough to ride a bike five miles to school every day! And if you move out of state or parent’s are busy or you have multiple siblings? How are you supposed to get to school?

12. Should there be tougher federal restrictions for content on the internet?

Wise up and look at the bill of rights! FREEDOM OF SPEECH, EXPRESSIONS, AND THOUGHT! The internet is another place where people put their right of freedom of speech to use. Now some things are inappropriate but you know what? YOU CAN STAY AWAY FROM THAT YOURSELF! You don’t have to get the government to do it for you.

13. Should students’ grades in gym affect their grade point averages?

Definitly not! Some people aren’t built to BE fit in the first place!. There are 3 types of body figures, skinny, middle, and muscular. (okay that’s not the real name of the body types but I can’t remember) People that aren’t able to do some of these things won’t make good grades and then you will have a lower grade point average. Not all people were built in such a way that they can run a mile everyday of their lives. GET USED TO IT!

14. Should marijuana be legal for medicinal purposes?

Look, I’ve done my research on this. Sure it can get you high quick but you wanna know how many people have died from smoking marijuana? 0, that’s right NONE. Now there may be some that died from getting high, and getting in a car crash or something but if you use it responsibly, you won’t have problems. Alcohol can get you drunk, so what are you going to do? Make Alcohol illegal? I think not. Cigarettes can give you lung cancer and that causes everyone money! If we’re going to make some drugs illegal, In my thoughts it should be Cigarettes I mean really! It’s REALLY addictive. But back to medical purposes, If marijuana is usefully and can save patients then DUH! I REALLY don’t see what the problem is as long as 1. It’s regulated and made sure that’s it’s not being abused and 2 being used responsibly! And really that’s it. You know saying something is illegal makes people rebel and do it more. And I’m sure if you look it up more people die from drinking and driving than getting high on weed. And did you know how many things that don’t have a cure that they think pot can cure??? HIV/AID, BREAST cancer, alcohol addiction, and SO much more!

15. Should college athletes be paid for playing?

No WAY! That’s not fair! Collage Athletes SHOULD NOT be paid for playing! You don’t pay for kids that have good grades do you? Kids that wanna be paid for sports can go get a job in the NFL but paying those students isn’t fair because now there is less money to be spent on things that are actually TEACHING kids. And it’s not fair for the athletes to get an easy way to make some bucks.

16. Should students be required to take Spanish classes?

NO! I hate that. I’m dyslexic. And that disorder makes it hard for me to learn new languages. Spanish is not the most important language in the world! They should be able to learn the language THEY want to learn not Spanish. For me, I’m going to learn Latin and I like to study Greek and that’s a much more smarter choice because when you get into science there are a lot of Latin and Greek roots in the words and if you understand those you’ll do better. So really if we’re going to require any language it should be Latin or Greek, they are much more practical and they’ll help learning plus they’re easy to learn.

17. Should celebrities who break the law face stricter penalties?

Who came up with this idea??????? Oh my goodness this idea is stupid. A celebrity is just another everyday person that has special attention taken to them because they do something that people admire. Well blah blah got a divorce. WELL GUESS WHAT WISE CRACK?! It happens all the time! Well blah blah smoked reefer! You wanna know how many people have smoked reefer in the United States? I bet there’s AT LEAST a million other people, just because they’re one of those people doesn’t mean that they’re bad! And if you wouldn’t let the fame go to their heads, maybe they wouldn’t act up like this!

18.                Should we cut down even more on public school lunches?

My answer NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You know what they already have is stupid. I bet someday that there just going to give you a block full of your daily nutrients like a salt lick! They’re already stretching our nutrients into like a two week period! The pizza is horrible! The milk FAT FREE I mean do you know how much fat is in reduced fat milk? Like NONE! You only get cheese for hamburgers EVERYOTHER WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!! I MEAN COME ON! You know what you’re really doing? Just starving kids to death! For example, Me? I never ate lunch. I didn’t have time to make my own lunch anymore and so I had to eat school lunches and I hated what they served except on nacho day (which now they’ve ruined with stale chips! grrrr) and the cheeseburgers (a burger without cheese or ketchup is just gross) and I didn’t like the sides either (I liked the cinnamon apples though) and the apples they had had this white stuff on them! And tasted absolutely horrible! So you know what I got for lunch? A chicken sandwich and milk and just a side they I didn’t eat to get out of the lunch line. Then of course I sorta became tired of chicken sandwich so I would eat a couple bites of my sandwich and drink my milk (and sometimes I wouldn’t even drink a lot of my milk) and wait in till lunch was over. Every single day. And now, you starved everyone to the point it’s un healthy and the kids that are overweight aren’t getting any skinner and you wanna know why that is? IT”S NOT SCHOOL THERE GETTING FAT IT”S AT HOME YOU CAN”T JUST STARVE KIDS TO DEATH AT SCHOOL! At this point, what’s the point of lunch it’s gross and I know most kids don’t eat it. When you cut down on school lunches everyone says “I can get something at home, that’s much taster than this junk” So then they throw it away, and get something even less healthy at home! Cutting down on school lunches is not going to do it. AND WHAT ABOUT KIDS THAT BRING THEIR LUNCH HUH!?!?!?!? They can bring whatever they want! What are you going to do about them? I know a girl who brought nothing but chocolate! And the tacos are gross because there’s no cheese and the meat tastes horrible!
