    • Jimmy your right. PETA are hypocrites who like to poke their nose into other people’s business. While I can’t accept punishment of an animal I am an avid hunter. There is nothing wrong with taking the life of an animal in a respectful way. The people who think its not are living in a fantasy world, and don’t understand where half their stuff comes from. Don’t tell me I can’t go hunt while you eat your cheeseburger, or where your leather coat. There is nothing wrong with tradition, and although I don’t plan on joining the military I have deep for people who serve. God bless america. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/mar/20/hypocrisy-of-activists/

  • I agree with you that banning firearms is not the answer. It creates more victims, stripping the right of self defense for law abiding citizens, and putting the guns in the hands of criminals. What I think most people often forget about when they think of the second amendment is that it was made for the people to keep and bear arms in case of…Read More

    Jimmy commented on the post, Immigration

    I agree with what you said regarding the process to becoming a citizen takes too long. It took my parents 5 years to finally become a US citizen and they don’t regret it at all. We are a nation of immigrants but we are also a nation with laws. Immigration is a very serious topic and needs to be taken care of. As Cooper said, Donald Trump wanting…Read More

    • Dear Jimmy:

      I am excited that you decided to write “Was President Trump’s reaction to Iran justified?” because I think relations with Iran may prove to be a central focus in foreign policy in the new future. I think this will continue to be the case as the restart their nuclear program because of Trump decision to cut off foreign relations.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Iran has been playing the US for a while now and no-one has done anything about it, making them think it’s ok.” I think this is an ill-informed and oversimplified view of the matter because it fails to take into account past administrations and other allies successful negotiations with the regime. Yes Iran is an oppressive state, but that doesn’t justify inflaming tensions to the point of war with Iran

      Another sentence that I questioned was: “ Something no-one else had the guts to do, except our President, Donald Trump. ” This stood out for me because there was no personal courage or sacrifice on the part of the President in the killing of Soleimani. The people that have to pay the consequence for the needless escalation are the U.S. servicemen and women who will have to fight the war, and Irani civilians who are under the brow of the regime. Trump is not going to fight in the war, he avoided fighting in the Vietnam War despite draft. The cost of Trump’s pet war will be paid in the blood of our brave military.

      As you probably could tell, I don’t agree with you that Trumps killing of Soleimani was justified. One reason I say this is it circumvented diplomatic relations, posing unnecessary costs both in the form of money and lives. Another reason I disagree with you is the result of the attack was the reinstating of the Iran nuclear program, which will only make Iran more powerful. Someone else will fill Soleimani’s shoes but they will be made a lot more powerful with Iran’s construction of nukes

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you seem to be very passionate and have strong opinions. I hope that you learn to do full contextualized research instead of taking talking points out of the Presidents mouth

    Jimmy commented on the post, Police Brutality

    While I agree that police brutality is an issue, and that there are no doubt some officers who wear a badge and should not be wearing a badge, I would like to say that police officers are not targeting black people. According to statista.com, in the years 2017-2019, more whites have been killed by officers than blacks. In 2019 so far, there have…Read More
