Gay Marriage

In a classmates blog she writes about gay marriages in the US. She feels that gays should have equal rights as heterosexuals and that gay marriage should be legalized nationwide.

She argues defending gay marriage and backs up her argument by responding to three major questions. Firstly, answering the question, "Should gays be allowed to be married?" with "Why not?" The second question addresses how gay marriage is forbidden in the Bible. She doesn't address this question specifically. Thirdly, she answers the question about gay people and their inability to procreate, by saying that "men are created equal" and these thoughts are uneducated.

Finally, she goes into detail about how being gay is biological and certainly not a choice. She even quotes a NY Times article about the nerve fibers in the brain. She ends with a long defense of how being gay is genetic and they are being treated unfairly and in the future, we will recognize our mistakes.

Illegal Immigration

With over 12 million illegal and undocumented people living in our country, it is not good for America’s security and safety. Not to mention, it makes it an easy conduit for terrorists entering our country. There is also a huge cost to our country, with the costs of overpopulation and welfare, medical, and education systems increasing more each day. They are abusing the system and not paying their share of taxes. Our system cannot sustain immigration the way it used to be. It is hurting our economy and affecting our country in a very negative way.

To resolve this issue or at least reduce the number of illegal immigrants, we need to enforce our laws. Every US resident should be documented and accounted for, and then deport the illegal aliens. The employers who hire illegals should also be fined. By eliminating illegal immigration, it would help the job market and lower the crime rate. They need to follow the legal process in order to become a citizen here.
