Speakout: May 31, 2013

Vices

You can tell me to give up my guns, beer, fast-food and cigarettes till yer blue in the face. I’m keeping ‘em cause it’s my God-given right.

Bike

Thanks to whoever stole my child’s bike. I hope you enjoy it. She is heartbroken. You came in my yard and took it off my porch. Your mother must be so proud of you.

Threat

The biggest threat to our country is the gullibility of the people to the lies and deceit told by the powerful criminals that run everything.

Culture

Please visit other parts of the world and see for yourself that our culture here is backwards. From customer service, communications skills, appearance to education, we need to get our act together.

Slurs

The people who called rape victims “sluts” during a Take Back The Night rally are disgustingly vile human beings. It’s obvious their parents failed them on many levels. 

Protest

Interesting to note that a professor made it mandatory for all her students to go to a protest. Is there an implied threat of grades being affected?

Bombing

The Boston bombing provided the opportunity for the government to turn what should have been a police investigation into a military-style occupation of an American city. This unprecedented move should frighten us as much or more than the attack itself.

Facts

People do not understand the negative effect they have businesses, other individuals, schools, communities, etc. when they voice their opinions without checking their facts. If you are going to open your mouth about an issue, know the whole story.

Appointments

People have no problem canceling appointments at their doctor’s office, but the minute something goes wrong, you better get them in yesterday.

Tests

What is the alternative to standardized tests? Customized tests adjusted to the students level of ignorance.
