Most people know that money doesn’t grow on trees, but the president of the United States can make it grow from anywhere. President Trump has derived the perfect equation for keeping the divide between the Upper and Lower class in America just as big as his ego. Since, as all people know, the public school system in America has no flaws whatsoever, pulling funding from our schools to put towards the military is what everyone needs right now. With his big hands (and even bigger penis), the genius that is our President has been overlooked. Mr. Trump has stated that he wants to cut 54 billion dollars from “non-defense agencies” and put that money toward the military. Forget about the fact that it costs New York City one million dollars a day to protect Trump Towers and $500,000 a day to protect the family. The secret service will only cost the taxpayers an estimated 8.8 billion dollars for all four years of his presidency. Now, let’s not be too harsh on the President, he has had to adjust to learning that aliens do exist, 9/11 was an inside job, and that the election really was rigged, so education is the least of his worries. But who needs education right? Donald has shown that with three different marriages, a TV show, and a small loan of one million dollars, anything is possible, even getting elected as president. Go ahead, with all the excrements coming out of the Don’s mouth, education will be the least of this nation’s worries.
I live on a hill where I can look out upon the beautiful scenery. The terrain engulfed by nature, the grasslands as they wrap around the mounds that encircle my view; it’s the most wonderful view in the world, that I can see solely from my bedroom. However, over the years the redwoods in my backyard have grown, so I’m going to cut them down. I love looking at nature. It’s marvelous evolutionary complexity yet stunning simplicity adds beauty, inspiration and meaning to my life, but these trees have committed the heinous act of destroying my view. I will uproot them. It’s invaluable to be able to wake up to Mother Earth every morning, and for these redwoods to think that they have the right to block my view inexcusable.
It is said that a stunning view, like mine, before the horrendous trees grew, can increase the value of a property by up to 12%, but what is this value in terms of happiness? Because of these redwoods, I attain 12% less happiness every time I look out the window. I don’t get to see the true beauty of nature, nor can I marvel at the magnificence of it anymore.
What would the world do without nature? It’s of the utmost importance because of all its benefits, not only emotionally, but also ecologically. My redwoods provide none of that, and will therefore be gone. By the time Earth Day comes around this year, I’ll have my beautiful view back, so I can enjoy the rolling hills; the redwoods shall be no more.
A recent act that will shock absolutely nobody, Donald Trump has passed a ban on immigration from several different countries to the United States. Despite the anger that this has created across the nation, Trump himself believes that he deserves an “A+ for effort”, and why shouldn’t he? The effect of his actions are not the most important things; what truly matters is that Trump has put forth the effort he believes is needed, proving yet again that it’s the thought, not the outcome, that counts. In addition to Trump’s self-awarded A+, the president has given himself an A for achievement because he has accomplished many great things, including the spark of nationwide protests and the bankruptcy of multiple self-started businesses.Trump has also said that he has “many good reasons to be president” and that he “wants to ban many more things by the end of [his] term”, which he proved just a few days ago with his ban on transgender people’s rights to use the bathroom that matches their gender. Americans are happy with this because transgender people are perverts and only want to use a different bathroom to peep on the people using it. Before citizens jump off the handle and try to have Trump impeached or something insane like that, it’s important to remember that this man has no previous political experience, and the fact that he was even elected in the first place is incredibly impressive! All in all, Trump’s presidency is eliminating unnecessary human rights, and American citizens are grateful!
Having more free time than other people, local child named Bobby Martin has just announced that he will never watch YouTube again. Bobby said, “YouTube has been tumbling down in views lately and I feel that its staff members aren’t working hard enough to establish a proper place to be able to upload videos.” Bobby went on to say how YouTube used to be exciting and thrilling when he would log onto YouTube, but he hasn’t felt that way recently from the less views it has been receiving. He then states that, “Other people around the world should stop watching the videos in this website as well because of the recent downhill road it is going into.” Is this the end of the popular video sharing website that has over ‘a billion hours watched every single day’? Going into the website as of today, views in YouTube have dramatically dropped according to Bobby. It has also been reported to us that he doesn’t experience the same feelings that he does for YouTube. Bobby wants to see the change that he wasn’t seen to hopefully revive the website altogether. From what Bobby is stating, it seems that the website’s staff isn’t doing anything to fix the problems for their viewers, especially with the removal of unskippable thirty second advertisements. From the information given to us today, this is the reason why YouTube is finally at it’s downfall. People are losing interest in YouTube and it is not long until the website loses most of its viewers.
Government, what a scary subject to talk about! It is all jumbled up with who trumps who. We have the federal, state, county and city government. Then for us teenagers we have home, school and friend government. One could describe government like an onion, with many layers. We can all say that federal is the top dog, the big kahuna, followed by the state, county, then city government. Ugh!! I can barely keep up with it and let alone spell them all. Then we get into the confusing part of teenager government. Who trumps who? Does mom trump dad? Does school overrule friends? Sports over homework? Well, that won’t get me into college! Who controls my curfew? Is it the feds, is it my parents, or is it my friends? School government dictates that you have to go to school from 8am-2:40pm. Does that mean I can appeal to the state to exempt me from starting school until 10am? That sounds pretty nice to me if I say so myself. Technically speaking, we can all Tweet “The Donald” and ask him to overrule curfew, eating dessert before dinner, appealing not to do chores at home, as well as being able to have as many puppies as we want. While by common knowledge federal law overrides state law, but for teenagers who knows who rules the roost. I mean, my Dad says he is the “king of the house” but my mother disagrees. I’m not sure either, it all depends on the day of the week.
