Watching the movie “Bowling for Columbine” is really eye opening to a lot of things. I get confused while watching it because I don’t know if things that are said are true or lies. One of the mains things that stuck out to me was that people were blaming Marilyn Manson for the shootings at Columbine. I understand that the two kids listened to the singer. I don’t think that he should be the blame for the kids violent acts. Marilyn Manson is a scary guy and not the best role model for the younger generation but I think that WAY more factors come into play when it comes to those highschool students going crazy and killing innocent people. What about: how they were raised, the fact that they can buy guns so easily, if they were picked on in high school, war, and other many other reasons. Then again who really knows what was going through the two teens heads, apparently something made them snap. The fact that we don’t know who made these kids kill there fellow classmates means that we shouldn’t blame innocent people for their hateful crimes. It really baffles my mind that teens could do something like this. The reason reason these kids did this will always remain a mystery…
Abortion.. November 11, 2008
Abortion is a very hard topic to talk about. People seem to have many different opinions when it comes to abortion. I’m in the middle when in comes to being for it and against it. I am for abortion if: a girl is raped or the mother is a drug addict. I am not for abortion if a girl is just too lazy to get birth control and just gets an abortion for no reason. I dont believe a baby should be brought into this world if the parents can’t even support it. I would hope if the mother and father of a baby being born that can’t support it would give it up for adoption. I know that after waiting so long you are killing a human life, but why let it keep living if its just going to go through hell the rest of its life. Or if the girl that was raped ended having her child, the child wouldn’t know the original father in most cases. Or if the girl that was a drug addict had the child, the newborn wouldn’t either not survive, or have many problems with its health in the future. I’ve known girls that have gotten over four abortions because its soo hard for them to be responsible, I don’t think thats right. I believe if you end up pregnant and it’s your own fault, you should have to suffer the consequences, but then again, if i was stuck in the situation of having a baby while i’m going through college, i dont know if i would be able to do it or not…. It’s a confusing topic for me, but its hard not to be a hypocrit in the situation.

Hello to a new Mr. President.. November 6, 2008
At 11:00 last night I could already see my country changing before my eyes. I sat with my eyes glued to my haggard television set in my room watching numbers in the lower right hand corner on the CNN channel. I was patiently waiting for Obama’s number to reach 270. I was worried I would wake up on November 5th and have McCain as our new president; even though he was on the same apple tree that bush had fallen off eight years ago. Our country is in true need of change. Our economy is dwindling down to absolutely nothing. I believe in Barack Obama. I know he can help our country with the problems we are facing like: the war in Iraq, making health insurance affordable, provide a tax cut for working families, make college affordable to all Americans, and the list goes on and on. The goals he has for our country is everything that we need right now, especially with the crisis we are in. I look forward to the progress Obama will bring to our country. I have faith in him to help out our fellow Americans.
Pet Peeves.. November 5, 2008
- When people chew food with their mouth open or chomp their gum.
- When guys go pee and they leave the seat up.
- Old people that drive ten miles below the actual speed limit.
- When people are too lazy to change an empty toilet paper roll.
- Girls that wear way too much cover-up and look like that have a mask on.
- When people brag about how much they drank.
- When people scrape their silverware on their teeth or plate.
- When someone is watching a movie with you and they say every line before its said.
- Overdramatic people.
VOTE… Obama–Biden October 30, 2008
I am extremely excited for the election on Nov. 4th. In my opinion, Obama should be president. I’m not even going into why I think he should win because it would be a novel. McCain and Palin aren’t going to change this country for the better. I’m pretty sure I dont want the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer. I would like to see the middle class put first. I believe that McCain will be just like George Bush, and look where he got us, not too far! I’m really scared for the future I’m going to be living, especially with the way the economy is going. I believe its time for change in this country and I think that Obama can offer that for us!
ROCK THE VOTE!! NOV. 4TH 2008!! VOTE FOR CHANGE!!
Debates.. October 29, 2008
I enjoy debating! I believe it’s a great way to express your opinion towards a situation. You also have the chance to hear someone elses opinion. I think that debating is a good way to learn how to argue with other people constructively. Debating can be hard at times though! I tend to get very ignorant towards others opinions occasionally so that makes it a little difficult because I get really fired up. I don’t think debating is for someone who has anger problems because no matter how much you point out your opinion, other people out there will always disagree.
When I want to debate, I usually bring up these topics:
- Certain pets
- Drugs and Drinking
- The war in Iraq
- Diets and Working Out
I my own opinion towards all of these topics that many people would agree with and disagree, If you ever want to debate with me, let me know 🙂
