“Mom I’m home.” Says thirteen year old Kevin James.  His voice cracks a little as he quietly sat down and drinks his still hot coffee.

“How was work son.” Asks his mom.

“Good.”  Said Kevin.  Kevin had always treated her well.  He was a wonderful son and the best on the block.  Kevin had bought her this great big house and the food he cooked was always amazing.  Her husband was good too.  He always did his chores but was always watching a tv shows that were too young for him.  One time Kevin had caught him watching “How I Met Your Mother” which he was way too old for and he was grounded for a month.  He didn’t understand it at all but their neighbor, Scott, had bragged that his daughter let him watch so naturally dad wanted to watch it as well.  Today he was on the TV when Kevin walked in.

“Dad get off the TV, you’ve been on it all day.  Have you even cleaned your room like I asked you too?”  Kevin asked.

“Can’t I do it tomorrow.”  Dad asked.

“No, now go upstairs and finish it.”  His father angrily walked upstairs.  “Why is he in such a bad mood.”  Asked Kevin turning toward mom.

“We might have gotten in a little disagreement.”  Replied mom sheepishly.

“You two were fighting again!  I just can’t leave you alone anymore.  I am getting too old for this.  Nobody else has to yell at their kids for the same exact thing everyday.  It would be thought that I would not have to deal with such problems with 46 year olds.  Give me your phone.  You won’t get it back until next week.”  Kevin yelled.

“It was his fault.  I just -”

“I don’t want to hear it.  Go to your room as well.” Kevin cut in.


Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act is worth the cost.  It is a necessary program that is funded by the government.  It was built for the people and will save us both our lives and money.

The average american will be saving money on health care thanks to Obamacare.  The people at said  “Although Obamacare’s net costs are in the trillions, the law actually reduces the growth in health care spending by tens of billions each year, reduces health care costs for many Americans, helps to insure tens of millions and is estimated to result in an overall net decrease of the deficit.”  So instead of destroying the government and the economy like many common americans believe, Obamacare will actually help with the national deficit in later years and reduce healthcare costs to americans who can not afford it.

Another reason to keep obamacare is that it will be saving lives.   Five hundred and two americans die do to lack of health care.  Those people now they have easy access to easy affordable health care to protect them.  “The decision of the Supreme Court to uphold the Affordable Care Act will now ensure chronic ill people access to insurance coverage they were previously denied. Although there are portions of the law which will not go into effect until 2014, the lives of many people — our neighbors, or family members or even ourselves — will no longer be marginalized or valued less by our culture because of their medical status. Prior to the passage of the ACA,

serious health conditions deemed by many insurance providers as pre-existing, non-coverable as the result of improper living habits (i.e. smoking, excessive use of alcohol, etc…), will give people a chance at living a life with dignity and honor” (Winbush).  People now have access to the medical assistance they need.  The people we love and care are protected. said “People who already have suffered a major illness or accident know that insurance companies can be terribly unforgiving. But Obamacare mandates insurance companies aren’t allowed to deny you insurance if you have any pre-existing condition. That means, no matter what your medical history looks like, you’ll be able to sign up for it.”  People will be covered and protected with these plan.  It can save the lives of the people close to us.  Is there really a price that you can pay for thousands of people lives?

One reason people don’t like obama care is because they don’t understand it.  They are not well informed voters.  A recent cnbc poll showed that “Forty-six percent oppose Obamacare and only 37 percent oppose ACA.”  This shows us that do not know what Obamacare really is.  Some people have been told not to like it with no idea of their own for what it stands for.

In conclusion Obamacare will be saving lives and money.    Without Obamacare we are letting thousands of people die and millions of dollars go down the drain.  It is a very important policy that will protect the people and must be kept in order.  People need to understand what  it is and what it does for our country.  Obamacare is worth the cost!

Immigration Reform

Is Our Current Immigration Policy Fair/Just

Our current immigration policy is not fair/just.  One problem with it is the number of illegal immigrants who have entered the country. Another problem is the limited amount of legal immigrants entering the country.  People living in third world countries deserve to have a chance to have all the opportunities that America brings.  Most of our ancestors immigrated here at one point.

One of the big problems about the immigration policy is the number of people breaking this policy by illegally entering the U.S..  The number of illegal immigrants in America is way too high.  There are currently estimated around 11.7 million people who entered the country illegally.  Julia Preston at the New York Times said that “Recent figures, including reports from the Border Patrol of illegal crossings at the southwest border, suggest that the numbers began to grow again last year.”  They are taking away jobs from americans who deserve them.  The reality is that illegal immigration hurts the U.S. middle class and it is severely damaging to the U.S. economy.  “Because of illegal immigration, every single day wages are lost, taxes don’t get collected, hospitals provide “free healthcare” for which they are never paid, huge criminal gangs of foreigners are roaming our streets and the cost of providing social services to illegal aliens is slowly bankrupting state and local governments”  (WVWNEWS).  The needs of the people of America must come before those who have snuck in.

One of the reasons so many people are getting into the United States of America is because of a weak border control. It is important that border control cracks down on illegal immigrants.  We can improve it by adding more border control agents.  Some Senators say that it would be a good idea to require fingerprints to get into our country.  This could reduce the probability of criminals entering.  However without increasing the number of border control agents this policy would not be enough to have a large effect on the number of illegal immigrants in America.  It is the only way to prevent these people from breaking our laws and customs.

Another reason America’s immigration policy is not fair is because it only allows six hundred and seventy-five thousand immigrants into the country each year.  This number is way too low.  These people have done nothing wrong yet are living in poverty.  They deserve the chance to get naturalized.  People think that these people are all criminals.  Instead they are mostly good people who are starving, sick, thirsty and living in the of the worst conditions with limited, if any shelter.  We as Americans can do

something about it by allowing more people to have a better life in the U.S.A..   They power our culture and are a big part of the way America is being run.  “We are a nation of immigrants. Successive waves of immigrants have kept our country demographically young, enriched our culture and added to our productive capacity as a nation, enhancing our influence in the world” (Griswold).  By adding just one hundred thousand more immigrants every year we are changing lives.  The more immigrants there are the more diverse America is.  People don’t realise it but immigrants are the backbone of our society.  Albert Einstein, one of the smartest men ever to walk the earth, moved here from Switzerland.  The potential is out there, these people just need the opportunities that America brings.  With more immigrants we can effect our future as country in positive way.

Obama and the government had the power to change things  but instead let the topic slide through their fingers and by pushing the reform into next year.  Boehner had been unwilling to enter into talks with the Senate on a broad bill that will help these people.  These immigrants need change right now.  It is important that they get this change as soon as possible (Parker).

In conclusion our current immigration policy is not fair/just because it does not stop enough illegal immigrants and does not allow enough legal immigrants who deserve a chance to live in America.  The current immigration reform needs to be changed.  Boehner and the house need to get their act together and realise this is serious issue.  America has always stood for freedom, why can’t we allow a few more legal immigrants enjoy it with us.

Haunted House

The large, ominous doors opened wide with a screech as I forced myself to go inside the sinister dwelling that cloaked everything around it with a aura of death.  Thump, my heart pounded as I pushed back my fears and entered into one of the rooms.  Smoke rose and lights flashed on and off, illuminating an eerie figure lurking in the shadows toward the back.   Hearing the screams coming from the other rooms, I timidly walked closer, and I saw in full detail the monster’s true form, he was pale horrifying demon, straight from hell, with bloodshot eyes and blood still leaking over his sharpened teeth.  I fled upon sight of him, screaming all the way to where my cousin was waiting safely
