    Voting should it be easy or hard

    The article titled "Should Voting Be Easier?"Up front, Stephen Eide, 2022), I discovered that, in accordance with federalism, no two states have the same voting regulations. While approximately 18 states are enacting laws that make it more difficult to...

    • I agree. It should be easy to vote and the idea that people should be able to vote freely and easily is at the basis of our democracy.

      I found this article interesting. It has a few ways that voters are being suppressed.

    • Dear Frankey,

      I am surprised by your post “Voting should it be easy or hard” because i had no idea about the fact that states are making it hard to vote. I believe that voting should be easy as well since we would need all the votes we can get when it comes to making a big decision for the state.

      One quote that stands out to me was “voting is a fundamental right and should be available to everyone, the article states that it should be more accessible” I think this is very true because of the fact that we have states making it hard to vote for their own citizens. It just doesn’t make any sense.

      Thank you for writing. I look forward to your next debate because the topics you pick up is very involved.

      I am very amused with how perfectly written this post was, good job, from your illustration on your post to the title of the post “Was killing the only way” I was impressed because you gave just the perfect amount of information about the situation to understand what went on.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me was “the child remained unharmed and became quickly at once sent to the health facility, where he became left to recover” its so shocking that an animal as big as a gorilla showed no harm to the boy despite being an animal, just goes to show how smart Gorillas are. Besides that, however, that also meant there were so many other ways to go about the situation. I believe that killing the gorilla wasn’t necessary at all, as you said tranquilizing him would’ve been the appropriate thing to do since the gorilla never showed any sort of threat to the child

      Thank you for writing, I look forward to hearing what you have to write about next because of this post you published, I really enjoyed reading this.

      I am moved by your post “was killing the only way,” because I remember hearing about this when it first occurred. It was saddening to hear about it and also to see the video that surfaced. In the end, it was unfortunate that a beautiful animal lost its life due to the carelessness of a “mother.”

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ Animals specialists assume that Harambe was attempting to defend the child due to the fact that he changed into the alpha and protector of his institution” I think this is important because I agree and I remember hearing many people online stating the same. It truly did look like he was trying to protect the child and in all honestly, if Harambe wanted to harm the baby, it would have happened as soon as it fell into the enclosure,

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because it looks like we might have similar interests. This was a topic and incident that I had forgotten about so I wonder what else you might write about.

      • Xavier,

        I am glad to see that someone shares a very similar view on this topic as I do. You were spot on when you mentioned the mother as there is no other word to describe her simply as “careless.” I think it is the responsibility of a mother to protect their child and she failed to do so. You also pointed out that Harambe was defending the child because he changed into the alpha male. I agree with this because, by nature, male gorillas protect the vulnerable. So by science, Harambe had no intention of hurting this baby and I think that the mother was much more of a danger to the child than Harambe ever was.

    • Dear Frankey,
      I am appealed by your post “Was killing the only way?” because it is about a well-known controversy that is still talked about to this day. This conversation about the Harambe incident always appeals to me so I enjoyed hearing your take on this.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me was when you asked at the very end if I think the killing was the only option in this situation because I have a specific stance on this. I believe that this was a parenting issue and the mother was very irresponsible to even let her child fall into the enclosure in the first place. Due to her irresponsibility, Harambe, unfortunately, paid the price. I think as people we need to do a better job protecting animal lives as incidents like these where people commit clumsy mistakes due to their incompetence and animals pay the price with their lives happen way too often.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I know that you like to discuss topics that are up for debate and opinion and I would like to see more of that.

    • Frankey, I am glad you are revisiting such an important and controversial topic. I fully agree with your statement here. I was unaware that there were other cases of children falling into animal enclosures that were solved without the fatality of one of our beloved animals such as Harambe. I certainly agree that there were other methods that could have solved this conundrum. Turing to a tranquilizer or some other sort of sedation would have been better for all involved. I appreciate your insight on this topic.

  • Dear Sebastian

    Reading the post I was very impressed with how effective yet simple your solution is to try and stop drunk drivers as well as the method and consequences in which people would get punished people for when they would get caught drunk driving.
