    • Thanks Jack for your post! I’ve always found it interesting and kind of scary how the US can basically send a highly accurate bomb anywhere in the world at anytime to spy on or kill anyone. Technology is truly a terrifying things and whether or not we should use to its full use is up for grabs at some times. The use of drones so far has been in my opinion responsible and used for the right purposes to protect our people however, its when the use of drones becomes much more prevalent and efficient I fear. Also just like any technology, things can go wrong and innocent people can be killed which is pointed out in this article

      Is the potential loss of innocent life worth it? I don’t know but we will have to see how the future plays out because I’m sure we will be seeing many more drones in the future.

    • This is an interesting post, Jack. I agree with what you said about kneeling for the national anthem, and how many people saw that as a dig at America and its history. I see it as one of the most patriotic actions we have seen in the past few years; the players are using freedom of speech to change something that they see as being wrong with our country, and are acting out against it (https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/09/kneeling-for-life-and-liberty-is-patriotic/540942/). I have a lot of respect for this, and am of the opinion that speaking out against something bad that happens in our country is about as American as it gets. I will look forward to your next post.

    • Great article Jack,
      There is always too much that can be had of anything, and for Americans it is meat. There is always advertisements enticing citizens to buy their product of meat. The consumption of meat is something that needs to be worried about because there are studies that show how excessive meat consumption can cause a variety of problems in a people. I have an article that shows the problems of eating meat excessively that might interest you.

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2015/02/19/eating-a-lot-of-meat-is-hurting-the-environment-and-you-should-stop-top-u-s-nutritional-panel-says/?utm_term=.895b7a2c6d13

      All in all, I liked the topic that you came up with for your article and hope you continue to keep writing.

    • Jack, nice job with raising awareness. I agree that an influx of something is not that beneficial to us, and also to the environment. I liked how you were able to tie the topic of health to the environment. However, as humans, we require certain amino acids that only come from meat such as tryptophan, lysine, threonine, and others that we cannot consume from only eating a vegetarian diet. Nice topic and I liked the passion. Keep up the good work.
