    • Hey dom, nice post. I agree that it will further the national debt but I think that it supports the citizens of America and shows that America cares and wants people to survive. And also I don’t think that we will be the ones paying back the debt because only certain people in our age group qualify so I feel like it would be unjust for some to have to repay the national debt.

    • Dominic great post! I agree with you and personally I am not a big fan of uniforms myself. While I do see the minimal purpose they serve I feel there are less cons about uniforms than pros.

    • Dominic this was very well typed post, I agree with you and notice that uniforms don’t really serve any purpose in the school system.

    • I agree with you and I think the uniforms have minimal purpose for students. Additionally they are not comfortable on me.

    • Hey dom, I thought this post was very insightful and necessary. However, I’d have to disagree in some cases. I feel like it depends on how often you play the game and who you play it with. Anyway, cool post bro

    • Dominic,
      In today’s society, the topic of kids being negatively affected by violent games is commonly addressed. The statistic that,”60% of boys and 40% of girls in middle school that has played or watched a violent video game are bound to bully, fight, or have aggression” is one that is quite surprising. I believe that video games can indeed have a negative effect on young children, however an average of 50% seems rather high. That said I have limited knowledge and so the fact could very well be true, in which case I think we need to not expose young kids to such violent games. I feel that games can also have a positive benefit to children as it simultaneously teaches them problem solving skills in various adventure based games. However at the end of the day I believe that other activities such as exercise, music, etc. have more positive effects than gaming. Overall you have a well written post and I am interested in hearing more.

    • Hi Dominic,
      Cool post, I agree that we should not let kids play violent video game, because kids does not have cognitive ability as adult, so we should keep them out of that kind of game. I think kids should only look at cartoon and play normal game, and do not spend too much of time on it, that’s what my parents told me.
