Our Secret Service. Being in the right place at the right time, and only the best of the best are considered for the job. Well apparently, they slipped up in the recruitment office when they hired the secret service members in Columbia. They were on official business for the United States, and representing our country. Unfortunately, they decided to be complete idiots and order some call girls. Not only is that illegal seeing as they are supposed to be abiding by the United States laws, but it is immoral. Buying a prostitute when you are supposed to be on an important mission for the secret service is unacceptable. Along with the agents, there were some special operation forces. I hope to God that they weren’t involved. They portrayed America as sexual pigs. If our secret service can’t abide by our laws, then they can’t expect us to either. I expect the perpetrators to be punished worse than any other citizen. Their punishment should not only be confined to being fired, they deserve something more, as they were representing our country.
Just got my acceptance letter to NHS. W00000TTTTT!!!

Just because your screensaver is an M14, it does not make you a badass.
Dear Deb (Gym Teacher),
While I can understand the service aspect of today’s physical education class, I don’t see how it fits in with the curriculum. Picking up trash along the side of the road does help our communities roadways, but I don’t think it is really “physical education.” My friend Hugh and I were at the head of the pack, maybe 3/4 of a mile ahead of the other kids. We had already filled up 3 or 4 bags with trash and left them on the side of the road for the designated car to come pick up. Meanwhile, we had a new trash bag with 4 to 5 pieces of trash in it. After 2 hours of walking along a highway, we had picked up quite a significant amount of trash, but as soon as we both stepped on the bus, I knew we were in trouble. Walking up the bus steps, I could literally feel your glare, and I started getting nervous. I knew I hadn’t done anything wrong and neither had Hugh, so I was wondering why you were glaring at us. All my questions were answered when I heard you snap at us, “Why didn’t you pick anything up? You were just walking along the road!” First off, if you want to confront me about something you think I did wrong, snapping at me is not the way to go about it. Already I was on the defensive and I really didn’t want to put up with being yelled at after a 6 mile walk. Hugh and I exchanged glances, and we both were feeling the same way, Excuse me? We didn’t do anything? Were you the adult supervisor? After being harassed quite extensively by you, Hugh and I sat in the back and stared at the seat in front of us. Feeling falsely accused was bad enough, but when the bus got back to school, you told everyone to, “stay seated.” Hugh and I knew you were going to lecture the whole class now, “While some of you did what you were supposed to, and we got many compliments, some of you just walked along the road.” After pointedly glaring at Hugh and I, the class was dismissed. Hugh and I both left school angry with you. Snapping at us was uncalled for and irresponsible, we are both physically inclined and always participate in your class. If you ever have a problem with my performance, addressing me in a calmer manner would be appreciated.
Kony. The name hits a nerve around countless social media networks. Teenagers are finally becoming involved in a word issue. They are all advocating for our government to send our military into Africa to train troops and find Kony. While I do agree Joseph Kony is the worst kind of person and he should be found, I don’t think we should be getting into a fight that doesn’t involve us so soon after such a large-scale war. So many teenagers are pressured to join the “Stop Kony 2012 Group” without even knowing what the cause is advocating for. Personally, I hadn’t even heard the name Kony before I was asked by four different people I hadn’t talked to in years to join the cause. I was even tempted to join the cause, so many of my friends had joined it, and I didn’t want to be the odd one out. After some thought, however, I decided to do some research before I joined the group, so I Googled his name. After watching the YouTube video and reading a few articles on him, I decided to let their numerous requests stand. While I did agree with many of the videos points about stopping him, I didn’t think sending our troops into a conflict that could put America into more debt was wise. Who knows what this Ugandan Warlord is capable of? He has heard about his name reaching the government of America, and I can imagine he is not too happy. As a big influence in the criminal world, I imagine he could create another catastrophe like 9/11 with little difficulty. Kony has gone into hiding; which means he could be anywhere. An uncharted plane could have taken him anywhere in the world and we wouldn’t know. Even if he still is in Africa, that’s a whole country and going on a 7 year search for him is not the best plan. We have no idea where he is, yet we are still thinking of sending troops to go find him. You can’t find him if you don’t know where to start. If we had every unconventional military force working on finding him, we might have somewhere to start. If we knew where he was, sending a small platoon of Delta Force, SEAL, or Force Recon soldiers wouldn’t be that difficult. If other countries were to offer their help finding Kony, it would be a different story. As of now, we have no foreign support. Uganda’s military isn’t capable of finding him on their own, and even with our help it would be very difficult. Seeing as I am going to Africa, I was a bit biased at first. My instinct was to find him and kill him. But after really thinking about it and examining the facts, I realized what a danger sending troops to Africa right now would be. If I was in charge of the decision, I would keep tabs on any foreign intelligence containing the name Joseph Kony, and wait for our country to recover from the war. I am pro-military, but I also want whats best for our country. Going into Africa, guns blazing, is not the way to solve this problem.
