It was announced last Wednesday, Hilary Clinton is running for president in 2016. There has been a lot of response to this announcement, some bad and some good. This is great, the fact that our country has progressed to the point that a woman has gained the courage to run for president. Although this is great there has been a lot of people who have not progressed with the country. People will find anything they can to try and tear down progress, which is what is currently happening. The email scandal that Hilary Clinton is a part of is something that might just ruin her campaign. Hilary Clinton has been on the defensive this week over the revelation that she exclusively used a private email account while serving as secretary of state. The 2016 presidential candidate has tried to put out the flames, but important questions about the controversy remain unaddressed. This is a disaster for her chances at president, as if she didn’t already have enough to worry about, this is something extra being thrown at her. The fact that Hilary is a woman is a huge hurdle for Americans to look past, but now they have an excuse to blatantly oppose and have a good reason to. Hilary has a lo of cleaning up to do in order to clean up her campaign for 2016. She needs to start by telling the truth about what happened to the emails instead of continuing to beat around the bush hoping this will just go away, because it won’t.
Everyone can relate to these two words, Spring Break. As a student it is something that you look forward to all year. Once it comes the excitement overflows your body and you absolutely cannot wait to get out of school! How certain students choose to spend their break may differ, but one of the most popular spring break destinations is Panama City Beach. With the beautiful scenery along with an amazing beach which is located in southern Florida, Panama City is the place to be on spring break. Although this is a popular destination for students on spring break, it has not always been the safest. Reports from this year show statistics like robbery, physical assault, and even sexual assault have all doubled since 2014. Panama City has made countless efforts to try and ensure the safety of students on spring break, but to no avail. After the latest reports of “gang-raped in PCB” have come out, they are vowing to try and make Panama City a safe place. Even though there are reports that say Panama wants to take spring break visitors more harsh and serious, the truth is they can’t. PCB makes over 100 million dollars over the course of a month when spring breakers come to have fun. The local bars and restaurants economically count on the “spring break month”. The truth is that no matter how much crime and debauchery goes on in Panama City during spring break, there is nothing that anyone can do about it. Panama City Beach is not a safe place to attend while on spring break, there is to much violence, drugs, alcohol, and other mischievous activities. Unfortunately, nothing can change because of the popularity of the beach along with how much Panama relies on the income from spring breakers. #PCB2K15
Homosexuality in America is more of a recent issue that has been debated since the mid to late 1900’s all the way up to now. Unfortunately things like homosexuality, bi-sexuality, trans-genderism, etc. weren’t really accepted in American culture until more recently. Due to this lack of acceptance it has been a continued issue through the past few decades. The video is based on “conversion therapy” this is a therapy session that people go to who are homosexual. Therapists actually try and convert them from homosexuals to straight. The fact that something like this even exists is unbelievable, but unfortunately that is how society looks at things ike homosexuality. Society says that it is something that can be changed, but what people don’t realize is that people are just born that way and it is our job as a society to accept them for who they are. It looks like President Obama is trying to change this, it is reported that the he along with congress wants to ban these “conversion therapy” sessions across the country. By doing this it ultimately shows that the government wants to see change and they are actually doing something about it! Over the years homosexuality is a lot more common than it used to be, this shows growth within our society and the many strides that have been taken to try and shift the public opinion. Although there has been substantial growth, there are still plenty of degenerates in this world who will find issues about this topic to raise. It is a continued battle in this country that will hopefully be resolved in the near future!
