"I disagree. There is a major issue with there not being any cops in town. If all of the deputies are out of town, and something major happens, they are not only risking their lives to drive FAST to get there, they are risking other drivers' lives as…"
"I disagree, this would affect people that live in town because they wouldn't be guaranteed to have a cop/deputy in town. They aren't already unified because they have separate chiefs, and they patrol separate areas. Harlan officers aren't allowed to…"
"The officers arent being sent to the sheriff's office, they are stripped of their jobs, and then they are able to apply at the sheriff office or go elsewhere. They aren't really given a job, some of them may not get a job at the sheriffs office…"
Recently, the City council of Harlan voted to make the Halarlan Police department go countywide. This means there will be no more police department, the only form of law enforcement in Harlan will be the Sherrif and his deputies. This is a very…
"I don't think that PUBLIC schools should have religion classes because there would be certain religions left out. However, there are private schools that are dedicated to learning school things as well as religion-based things. The only disadvantage…"
"I don't think that they help us learn better, I think that it helps to track our progress and to compare us to our peers at academic levels. Our isasp tests defiantly reflect how well we are learning. If they didn't there would be no point in…"
"I think that wind energy does benefit us because it is a somewhat clean source of energy. The energy itself is clean, but disposing of the turbine itself takes DECADES at least to decompose if it is not recycled. Most of them aren't, they just sit…"
"I don't really think that it is ethical. When is anyone EVER going to need an entire head transplant? By that point, they would be dead and they arent even be themselves anymore. There isn't really a point to these and they should not go through…"
"I think that concealed carry should be legal because if someone starts to shoot up a restaurant/ rob a grocery store, who is going to stop them. They have a gun and no one else (legally) would. It You should have to get a permit and a thorough…"
"Vaping could definitely be worse than smoking. I say could because we have no idea what the long-term effects of these devices are. E-cigarette companies are defiantly targeting young kids because those are the main group of people that use them. We…"
"I think that if the lunch is not of high nutritional value and quality, we shouldn't have to pay nearly $4 for it. I understand that in order to make food for nearly 400 growing teenagers, it won't be of the highest quality, but they could lower the…"
"I think that we should be using the computers the same amount that we have. The evolving world calls for skills such as computer skills and online communication. If people cannot understand how to run a computer, they will not survive in the future."
"I understand that some may feel that we need to get rid of daylight savings time. But I like it to be bright later in the day because then I have more time to do outside things. The clocks can keep changing just like they have been since World War…"
"I think that transgender care should be banned because god made you the way that you are. It is not something that is meant to be changed. You were born as what you are and that is that. People that change their genders and go against gods word…"
"How is this not a decision? Obviously, some decisions are made when you decide that you are not the 'same gender' anymore. If your brain is not fully developed, how can you make a life-altering decision? I don't think that people are able to make…"
"I think that US school lunches are junk. It's food I guess, just not the best. Italian school lunches look so much better because it looks like it was actually made from REAL ingredients and meats, unlike the US schools' food, which is fake meat and…"
"I believe in climate change but i don't think putting farmers out of work is the way to fix it. Electric cars are no better than gas cars in the 'green sense'. if farmers would stop farming we would run out of food and resources, which is not only a…"
"I think that smoking being banned in Mexico will save many lives in the long run. But it will also increase the crime rate due to the number of people that were addicted to cigarettes being forced to use them illegally. I don't think that smoking…"
"I would want nap time to be right after lunch because that's when I usually get sleepy. Students would sleep heads down on their desks. Teachers would use this time to get caught up grading papers/homework and focusing on their classes."
"i wouldn't prefer the year-round schedule because then I wouldn't get a big summer break to recover from the school year. The traditional consists of a couple of major breaks, then the summer break. Allowing one to completely recover from the school…"
"I think that passing periods should be 3 minutes. 3 minutes is plenty for getting to class, especially in this small of a school. If our school was much larger, then I would say that we should have 5 minutes for passing periods.But since the school…"
"I don't think that COMPUTER games should be allowed in school. They draw the student's attention away from school and toward video games. Now, games in PE are fine because it is a class dedicated to playing games for 43 minutes, and there is no…"
"I think we should be able to pick our classes, we should just have a wider selection than what we have now. Colleges might lose money due to this because people can take these classes in high school and not in college. The government can make a…"
"I think that technology is both slowing and helping the workforce. It is easy to become way off task when you are on a computer, which is why it can slow down the workforce. But, it can speed it up by eliminating the need for the person/ make the…"
"I think that Biden is too old to be president. I'm surprised he hasn't died yet, he has terrible communication issues, such as stuttering and forgetting his line. He has helped to increase inflation and didn't discourage the Russia and Ukraine war…"
"I don't think that electric vehicles help the environment, they have to process the batteries ( made of lithium they have to mine, which is also bad). I would not buy an electric vehicle unless it is dirt cheap. Those things are EXPENSIVE, to be…"
"I hope that electric cars aren't mandated in the future, the lithium they use is more harmful than the gas we use. Also, when one of those electric cars sets on fire, you cannot put it out, it just has to burn until it is gone. These cars also have…"
"I think that this is a problem because if the gas has any long-lasting effects, they might not be able to live there anymore. I would evacuate just in case something bad happens with the chemicals such as breathing problems or explosions. How would…"
"I would not give money to the homeless, I think that if they are homeless they aren't working hard enough. I think it is nice to give money to the homeless, but they can just spend it on anything. If I were homeless I would want food that way I can…"
"I have not heard of chat GPT before and I have never used it or heard of anyone using it. I think that these should be banned because if students can use these it is like cheating. I couldn't imagine having an AI give me homework answers though,…"
"I think that we have overpopulation right now, but in a few decades or a couple of centuries, we could be in an underpopulation situation. this would be a problem because we have lots of jobs and roles that need to be filled that can't. Also, what…"
"I think that 10th grade and up should be able to leave for lunch, if everyone got to leave then it would be chaos in the parking lot and people would end up coming back late because they sat waiting for the parking lot to clear for 15 minutes. If we…"
"I think that math is a close second in the most important subject, I would say that the most important is history. I say this because we learn the most from the past. That way we don't repeat it. Such as in world war 2, we need to learn what…"
"I don't think the internet is making us stupid, there is plenty of things to learn on the internet. However, when the internet is used to do stupid things or watch stupid stuff, it is hard not to become stupid. When people use it as intended they…"
"I don't think that we should look for life on other planets because it is a waste of time, there is no life in the milky way, and to get to other galaxies would take hundreds of years. I think that e.t. life is real, I just don't think that we can…"
"People need to be aware of what happens on social media before they download the app, after they download the app, it is too late. They will become addicted to their social media and eventually become depressed because they can't live how the people…"
"Parents should be able to ban books, just ones that are inappropriate/profanity heavy, not if they don't like them or their message. I don't know of any banned books, and I'm not sure that I would want to read them because I'm sure that they've been…"
"I think that parental supervision is important because, without it, kids will do some stupid stuff. I also think that parental control is important because it allows kids to learn how to behave, and it teaches them what is acceptable and what isn't."
"I think that our lunch is the perfect length. I have time to eat, go to the bathroom, and socialize/play on my phone. If it were longer, it would be boring because you would run out of things to do. if it were shorter it would be a rush to finish…"
"I have a study hall and i think that they are beneficial, they give me time to get my homework done and to relax. It is also a good time to use the bathroom, if you don't have a study hall, go to the bathroom before/after lunch or before classes."
"I don't think that there is any better way to test products, the only other way is to test them on humans. I think that it is animal abuse but there is no other way to do it. Animal testing should be legal either way because it is way better than…"
"I think that the chiefs will win because Patrick Mahomes is just better. Jalen Hurtz is going to hurt when the chief's defense is done with him. I don't think that Patrick's Ankle injury will affect how he plays because he is the best quarterback…"
"I think that the president should be required to serve in the military, after all, most military generals/high-up people in the military became president frequently in the early times of the country. I would never run for president because people…"
"I think that social media has both positive and negative impacts. Some people use it just to be mean to others, whereas others use it to spread their lives and their happiness. My most used social media app is TikTok because there are a lot of cool…"
"I don't think that there should be assigned seats at lunch. By this point, everyone should have at least one friend that they will tolerate sitting by. I think that blending all social groups could create friendships as well as rivalries. Some…"
On January 7th, 2023, Tyre Nichols was stopped by Memphis police for reckless driving. He was taken out of the car and was not cooperating with the police. He was taken to the ground because he was resisting arrest, and when he got up he started…
"I don't think that the police were 'overreacting' by arresting her, they had to have had a reason to arrest her. Whether that be trespassing or blocking the roads and causing a safety hazard, there was a reason. My opinion on climate change is that…"
