Teen Speak Out

In response to “NOT SHOWN:” You make it sound so simple. Go to college and you will never have money worries. Right now many in the workforce earning minimum wage are college graduates. I guess you don’t read much or pay attention to the news. Many companies have moved their jobs overseas because labor is cheaper (shame on them), so many are without jobs. This trend began in the ’70s, so I hope you don’t blame Obama for that, too. (reply)

In response to “CHILL ON THE POTUS!” Yeah, he is kinda cool, like a rock star! But we need a leader, not a celebrity. Russia, North Korea, China, Syria and Iran are doing bold and really bad things because they know the only country that would and could stop them currently has no leader, and they’re right, because Obama is making no attempt to stop them. POTUS used to be known as “Leader of the Free World,” but Obama is more like the political equivalent of “Real Housewives, D.C.” (reply)

“Obama knocks one out of the park,” when he gave a college speech. Oh, really? The president has saddled these students with about $7 trillion in new debt during the last five years, and the dollar is about to crash. He has intimidated Congress to give him money to throw around to huge corporate pals, otherwise “the Social Security check might not go out?” Really? You have no clue. (reply)

In response to “LOTS OF LAKE ICE:”It’s time for the “informed” to do your homework. I’m sure we can agree a) the Earth spins b) cold air sinks c) the North and South Poles are the coldest places on Earth. Well, normally all the cold air spirals around the poles in a thing called the polar vortex, but because of global warming, world temperatures are all blah-warm and there isn’t enough cold air to make it run properly. The Arctic is literally leaking cold air onto the Great Lakes, giving them record ice, because the polar vortex is dying. It is not natural or cyclical. It is what we informed people like to call a “problem.” (reply)

I believe in the Easter bunny! I can’t wait until Easter morning when I get lots of chocolates and goodies! (reply)

In response to “SHOWER TROUBLES:” I hear ya. I don’t like showering in front of people either. It just seems wrong. I need privacy. Plus, I don’t even need to shower after gym class either. I can just freshen up and I am fine. They really should do something about making kids shower together. We have issues already, we don’t need more. (reply)

Spring is coming and I am nervous. I am nervous about my grades and if I am going to graduate. I am nervous that it is too late to do anything about the damage that I have done. Will I have a chance to make up tests and projects so that I can graduate? I am worried that it is too late for me. (reply)

In response to “MINTS:” I love mints! I keep them on me at all times and offer them to many people. This helps when you have a stinky friend. Anyone for a mint? (reply)

In response to “WHERE’S THE PRESIDENT?” Where do you think he is? Running the country, duh! He is a busy man and he is pulled in so many directions that you could never understand. Chill on POTUS, he is kind of cool. (reply)

I keep reading news headlines: “Ukraine Crisis.” It is not for us. We have no business there. It was part of the former Russian U.S.S.R. and it’s their business, not ours. Our country is broke and we can’t afford to be the world’s policeman. We must end our involvement. (reply)

In the ’70s, the global freeze gang predicted the Earth was going to freeze, and in the ’90s the global warming stooges warned the Earth was going to scorch. When they were wrong both ways, they changed the name to climate change. For the uninformed, climate change is normal and cyclical, it happens naturally and varies in duration. The Great Lakes have near record ice cover and the Arctic ice cap is increasing, contrary to what Al Gore said. People must wake up to the brainwashing and ask, “Is it so?” (reply)

In response to “NOISY”: I totally get it. I can’t believe how noisy my library has gotten. The librarians always say to be quiet, but they are the ones that are so loud! (reply)

Numerous financial experts and a government agency are predicting financial doom here in the USA. Meanwhile, the president is going on about immigration, minimum wage levels, putting monitors in news outlets, and covert involvement in foreign conflicts. When is he going to at least talk about our financial crisis? It’s like he doesn’t care. (reply)

Why has our public library gotten so noisy? When you are trying to concentrate on the computer, all you hear are the loud conversations of the library staff at the desk. Don’t they realize that the library is not their private home? (reply)

In response to “BE DIFFERENT!” I agree with you! When I am at my home town, all you see is boys wearing sweatshirts and shorts and the girls are wearing a North Face, leggings and Uggs. In Hartford nobody is like that... they all dress their own way. People need to be diverse. (reply)

In response to a “KID:” I agree with this comment because Justin Bieber changed a lot over the years. I think the money and fame changed him. I guess he thinks just because he’s a celebrity, he can do whatever he wants. (reply)

Life is too short to be stressing. God has gave me lots of good reasons why to live. We can change the world. C’mon people, let’s just not stress over anything and live our lives. I wish the world can please have world peace... etc. (reply)

Justin Bieber has gone over the edge! I use to like him a lot more when he was keeping it classic, like in 2009. But wow... JB is trying to be a punk now. Not cool. (reply)

In response to “JUST PLAIN MEAN:” The young man’s college education at a local college cost the taxpayers a great deal of money! He didn’t work at all during all that time. The job he got did not require a college education, and is part time, and he isn’t looking for anything else. He is very content with working part time so he is able to collect state assistance. It’s not mean, it is just plain facts! (reply)

In response to “BAD IDEA:”People in other parts of the world go to school in the heat and in the cold. In Africa and India, the schools do not have air conditioning and some kids don’t even have a desk, but they still go to school. They would laugh at you and call you a baby if they heard your argument. Do you want Africans to think you’re a baby? (reply)
