Photos show scale of North Korea's repressive prison camps -- Amnesty - 0 views

  •  
    North Korea's prison camps are wrong. Now with the pictures of the camps and all the witnesses they have and evidence, I would think that would be enough for the United Nations to do something about it.

Free condoms for your 12-year-old? California health council can help - 3 views

  •  
    (CNN) -- With just a few clicks of a mouse, kids as young as 12 can have free condoms delivered to their doors in California. And that idea is garnering mixed reactions from Californians.

    Better be safe than sorry.
  •  
    i think that 12 year olds should not be able to buy condoms there should be a certain age limit.
  •  
    i think you should be able to get condoms no matter how old you are. if you are haveing sex you should be safe.
  •  
    Safe sex is the best way to go. If your thinking about sex at any age, you should make sure you have condoms no mater what.
  •  
    Perhaps parents, guardians/ and or teachers should encourage kids not to make those choices until they are old enough to handle the consequences (aka, wait until their married. You wont have to deal with pregnancies or emotional stress)
  •  
    No one that young needs to engage in sex but if they do they need protection and not have many partners it seems to me that people are having to many partners.
  •  
    I dont think anyone that young needs to have sex they should be getting a free pack of craynos not condoms
  •  
    i dont think they should be able to but yes i do belive that they do need to learn about pertection ... but no they dont need them
  •  
    I agree with Hannah, they should not be getting condoms at 12 that is way too young to even be thinking about doing that kind of stuff. But I also agree with Spencer, they should be taught about protection that way when the time comes MANY years later, they know what the right thing to do is.

Why Wal-Mart workers are striking on Black Friday - 0 views

  •  
    "Jeff Landry, an employee in Sapulpa, Okla., plans to join the protest. He works from 4 to 9 p.m. after attending school all day. When he was scheduled for a shift during class, Landry complained. He says his managers responded by cutting his hours from 40 to below 30 a week.
    This meant that Landry was no longer eligible for health care, since Wal-Mart requires workers to work an average of 30 hours per week to get benefits.
    "They tried all these tactics to get rid of me," he said."

    Wow this is crazy! I would quit!
  •  
    Yeah it sounds crazy!
  •  
    protesting is a legal rght given to any united states citizen as long as they do it legally
  •  
    I agree partially with what the workers are striking for because Walmart is a crazy place every single day, especially around the holiday season. However, I do not think they need to demand better pay or more stable hours. Their average pay is 5 whole dollars above federal minimum wage, and there are plenty of people out there who work a different job with a lot more hours at irregular times for minimum wage and no benefits. Why should Walmart be any different? I feel as if they are striking for something they will not get.
  •  
    protesting is legal only if its non-violent so I think the had a right to go on strike.
  •  
    Civil Disobedience!

Protestors call on Obama to reject Keystone XL pipeline - 0 views

  •  
    Less than two weeks after Barack Obama won his re-election campaign, protesters gathered Sunday to call on the president and his administration to reject the proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, and to act on climate change.

    I believe that it is totally okay for these people to protest. They are protesting based upon their beliefs and feelings, so they have a right to protest. They feel that expansion in the fossil fuel is going to impact our climate. This is a perfect example of where people are lobbying the Obama Administration through peaceful protest to effect a desired result and outcome of government action.
  •  
    as long as the pipe doesn't contaminate any water supplies I don't see a problem with it
  •  
    I find that there are two different sides to this story and for the most part both is good but one is better. The global temperature will be constantly going up no matter how green and organic America will be. There are other countries that are not able to contribute to going green. I find that the Keystone pipeline would be a good mission to strive for because of the state of America. We are not going to be the top of the line forever and maybe just maybe this project will keep us on the top longer.

    I just don't understand why they wouldn't change it if they knew it wasn't right. What reason do you have for not changing it?

Bill C-309 | openparliament.ca - 18 views

  •  
    OK so it is not being proposed in the USA, but this bill recently introduced in Canada is pretty interesting. Think about the people in our country who protest, but don't want their identity to be shown. Would you support this bill or not?

    link seems broken... try this http://openparliament.ca/bills/41-1/C-309/
  •  
    I think its a good law, people should be able to know who you are. If you really wanna protest, you shouldn't care.
  •  
    I believe that if you truly believe in the cause, then you should have to face the consequences, even if that means losing your job or your reputation and status.
  •  
    This bill makes sense. Public safety is at the forefront of this bill, if a protest gets violent or other harmful/unlawful acts occur the persons the are held responsible will be able to be identified. But looking at it from the other side, people might want to conceal their identity at protests, or the masks are part of their protest(example Anonymous). If this bill passes people will be made, if it doesn't pass other people will be mad. Who is the Canadian government ok will making mad?
  •  
    This bill should be passed because if you're risking yourself by already being there, you should have to show your face. Also, if the situation ever turned violent, that person wouldn't get away with it because their face wasn't exposed so they could be identified.
  •  
    I think that this bill should be passed because the police should have the right to identify anyone who is protesting. If you want to protest, protecting your identity shouldn't be a major concern because you would want people to know who you are, and what you are speaking out against.
  •  
    I think if you are going to protest, you are there for a reason, that you strongly believe in, so you should not want to hide who you really are
  •  
    It should be considered that this is a trade for security by means of liberty. Sacrificing freedom for a small degree of protection. If this bill passes, it could easily snowball to other things (this may be a bit of a reach) such as controlling what you can wear altogether just so that you can be identified at all times just in case you might be possibly considering intending to commit a crime.
  •  
    As said in earlier comments, I think that if you want to protest IN PUBLIC then the public has the right to know who you are. If you want you can protest in your house and no one needs to know who you are. But out side of you cant hide from the public if your are going to stand outside with a big sign and yell out things in front of people.
  •  
    I think this should be a bill that becomes a law.
  •  
    I see it as your there or your protesting for a reason so why hide it. If your protesting you believe something is ether wrong or right so why hide your believes. If you don't want to be seen or noticed here's an easy answer don't go!
  •  
    I think that you should be able to wear a mask, because if you're protesting something that you believe in, or don't believe in, than it is a personal matter and you should be able to conceal your identity from the public.
  •  
    I think it might be better if you have to register to be part of a protest but to have the list sealed unless things get violent
  •  
    I think that they should show there faces. Its there choice to go, so then show yourself, dont hide.

    i think that wall street is bringing attention to the middle class and the media doesnt like it
  •  
    The occupy wall street protest is bringing more attention to the middle class, and it's shocking the media. The illustrator is trying to show how it's all tied together in one way or another.
  •  
    I think that with all the "action" going on between wall street and the middle class, the media is shocked and is in disbelief.
  •  
    The Occupy movement is like the middle-class' prince charming, exactly what we want. The 1% on the other hand is trying to poison the middle class with lies and deception from the media which is made up of the 1%.
  •  
    The Occupy Wall Street movement is trying to revive the middle class in order increase their supporters to the full 99% it once was, but the 1% aka the media is like the wicked witch in Snow White that gave her the poisoned apple so she would be out of the way...and the media is upset that attention is being drawn back to them
  •  
    I think it's that occupy wall street has now involved the middle class and the media is appalled by it.
  •  
    I think it means that occupy wall street is trying to save the middle class and the media doesnt want to have it back.
  •  
    I think it means how the occupy wall street movement is bringing attention to the middle classes economic struggles, and the media doesn't want that to happen.
  •  
    I believe the cartoon is portraying that there is a connection between the Middle class and the wall street movement, and wall street is trying to revive the middle class. The media however, is not thrilled about the attention being brought to the middle class problems. So the media poisons the the other one percent into believing the lies and misleading comments to try getting their way.

    Regardless of where you end up on this issue, it is good to see young people taking part in government for our own community.

    I can't believe they say were too young to understand. Just because were in high school we too young. its not right.
  •  
    I am proud of Emily for standing up for what she wanted. Not many people would be brave enough to do something like that..
  •  
    i think that its really brave of emily to stand up for what she wants and thinks that is the best. Not a lot of people would do it. But she is standing up for others and her opinion.
  •  
    I understand where he is coming from saying high schoolers are too young to understand this. This topic is all about money, where it is coming from, how much money is needed, how much they will get from it. We do not know what goes on behind the scenes of this deals. Maybe instead of saying we are too young he should of said we are uninformed.
  •  
    I like what Brice said, "we are just uninformed."
  •  
    I hate to say it but i have this intense urge to slap City Council member Matt Walsh...what because we are young we automatically don't understand? More like we have more on our minds then politics and gaining support by being popular with business owners.
  •  
    we have the right to say what we need to say. People have the right to say that they should not be in a public place or anywhere.
  •  
    I also think its good that students are trying to make good points on why they shouldnt own the MAC. There taking a part in this and trying to stop it. But will it help? We will see later on....
  •  
    If he has enough gumption to tell Emily that he is disappointed in her for collecting signatures from uninformed student then he should have enough knowledge to know that we won't know whats going on if we aren't educated on this topic and that it is the generations above us job to educate us and pass on what they have learned to the younger generation. So if he is disappointed in Emily then he should also be disappointed in himself for not doing his job.
