BEING a senior was the BEST part about being a senior. I would go back and tell my freshman self to just relax and get my priorities in order real quick or it will bite me in the ass later on. I would also tell my freshman self that relationships are not the way to go in high school. The Occupy movement will definitely have an impact on me and the rest of my education. Slow Down by J12 My...
The hardest thing about being a junior was juggling homework and college apps and everything that came along with that. I had a very hard time remembering deadlines and I seemed to be doing everything last minuet. The biggest surprise of my junior year was my report card at the end of the year and my 3.5 GPA that came along with that. Chemistry was really big my junior year, everything I...
I didn’t return to a school sophomore year, I was home schooled so that was different. It was weird not being around other kids my age and no teachers around. I basically did what I wanted and got my work done whenever. I hung out with my older brother most of the time, it was different but not horrible. The inauguration of Obama was a major news story my sophomore year. I remember...
I remember the riots happening after the shooting of Oscar Grant. I remember learning the basics of how to read music and how to control my breathing when singing. It was in my core music class, I remember learning this because it has really helped me with my interactions with music today. I also remember because my favorite music teacher of all time was teaching the class, her name is Mrs....
I absolutely agree with Obama and his opinion on student loans. It makes no sense to make students pay more money for their education just to contribute to the country’s debt. And taxing the rich is out of the question. I think that this forum was a great way to get the information out there, it appeals more to younger generations and people who don’t really pay attention to these...
The Fed or the Federal Reserve is the central banking system of the US. It was created due to financial crisis in the US, events such as the Great Depression. In the Fed there is money. The Fed’s job is to conduct the monetary policy and maintain stability of the financial system. The Fed is crticised for not reducing unemployment.

Average income $51,413 $4,284 per month I don’t think a family could live comfortably on this income because I live in a family of six and $4k per month is just not enough for us. We have to buy groceries, pay for lunch at school and public transportation back and forth every day, on top of there are school expenses to worry about such as field trips and tests, high school students are...
I feel that credit cards are a bad idea at any age in our current economy,we obviously don’t know what ‘money management’ means. I don’t have a credit card myself but my parents are trying hard to get me one,I’m afraid of credit cards because I have witnessed them struggle with their credit,avoiding bill collectors and being embarrassed when they don’t qualify...

#1: “Stop asking for hand outs I never got hel from anybody!” Favorite quote: “I expect nothing to be handed to me, and will continue to work my @$$ off for everything I have. I am NOT the 99 percent, and whether or not you are is YOUR decision” They think they are saying “I pulled myself up by my bootstraps!” What they are saying is very rude but...
Panem is unusual because it is very advanced technologically but is challenged economically with inequalities and deprivation. Economic theory says that prosperity happens by capital accumulation and “Solow residual”— the inexplicable growth of technology. A country that knows how to build a prosperous society makes this work. They are rich in knowledge because they know what...

This inevitable crisis with oil prices is getting a bit annoying, we all know that oil prices are not going down so why are we still complaining about it. Fullerton is right with our constant dependence on oil the Middle Easterners will always have some control over our whole economy because we can not survive or get from place to place without it. Oil in our country is crucial but we need to find...

1) I guess this reminds me of Romney himself. 2) I don’t think the Romney’s are taken out of context but they are being a little mistreated. They are being criticized for answering a question honestly, would we rather them lie about their wealth? The fact is they are wealthy and we all know that. Santorum: 1) Santorum’s thoughts on birth control are totally expected,...
Mitt Romney is definitely winning but Ron Paul and Santorum are close behind. However, I do think that Obama will win presidency.
Thesis: Obama is not at fault for the increase in oil and gas prices. I agree with his position because as he said in the article “when Obama took office, everything in the economy, including the price of oil, was in free fall.” Our economy was already on its way, if not already, in the ground. Obama is not completely at fault. The price of gas right now is absolutely ridiculous, it...
I would eliminate the penny because it cost more to make but is worth less than a nickle. Pennies aren’t used very often anyways they just take up space in our change purses. Nickle are much more reliable,we need nickles. I think that we should less copper when making nickles and use more nickle. If we eliminated pennies, I don’t think the world would miss them at first but eventually...
Mitt Romney’s net worth=$150-$200 million Newt Gingrich net worth=$6.7 million Romney.
Rick Santorum Anti-College extra credit
I don’t agree with Santorum’s opinion on college but he did an excellent job of making Obama sound like he’s saying that all kids are obligated to go to college or they will be unsuccessful in life. His rhetoric is well put together and well presented.

“crony capitalism” is the act of using close relationships in business and government to succeed in economy. “This NLRB is not there to encourage enterprise and growth of industry,” Romney said. “It’s there to be as a political payback for the president.
