The Space Force name in my opinion is misleading. I do not think the number one priority of this branch will be to "fight" in space, but rather to develop technology so that the US will not fall behind other nations. NASA's goal is to reach other planets and explore, the Space Force's goal (in my opinion) will be to develop technology such as GPS, transportation, resources, etc.

I think the main line that you wrote in your post is "little gang activity or economic/social differences." I would have to say the majority of all shootings or violence involving guns in America stems from these differences. I do like the seriousness to which Iceland takes gun ownership, but I just don't see it working in the U.S. unfortunately.

I agree and disagree (if that's possible). On one hand why is it wrong for a talented actress like Johansson to challenge herself and take on a role like this? The ability to be "someone else" is something actors are very good at, it's what they do all the time. If actors only played themselves, and were restricted based on societal pressures then I don't think acting would be as popular. Now, I totally agree with looking in minority groups to find new actors. These people will bring new perspectives and styles not typically found in Hollywood. This is exciting, especially since it will give the ability of someone who is transgender to show what it is really like, and make the role much more genuine and believable.

I love this idea, but there is only so far you can go. The idea of mandating time for only people with disabilities is wrong, as the store will most likely lose customers as a result. I think designating times for disable while leaving the store open to the public is a much better choice.

I think the SAT is the best if not the only real metric to measure the level/aptitude of a current student. I think schools should be focusing more on how much they weigh GPA, as it is one of the most subjective measurements used. Every district has a different way to measure, and all teachers view what it takes to get an A differently. Although I think the weight of an SAT should be lessened, I do not think it should be removed.

Well Brazil blew it, again. And as an American the winner of the world cup dosen't matter to me, however I enjoyed seeing the small country of Croatia in the final. It was awesome to see them make it and watch as all 4 million citizens cheered for them in the final, despite the outcome.

I think many could find these as inappropriate, especially if they are parents who want to monitor their child's social media.

A step in the right direction, but that's about it. I read somewhere (I can't find the article) that plastic straws make up a mere 0.3% of ocean plastic. It's an easy fix, but I think more can be done.

It's crazy to think that some states are still so far behind with some aspects of legislation. As a loving dog owner, anything to help protect the lives of our housepets, is a good thing.

Sadly I think this is what we have to come to, but definitely showing the parents that the schools are actively working to pursue protection and safety.

Fairfax County schools are on the right track. One bullet point in particular I found interesting was the one regarding hiring a psychologist. Off the top of my head, the majority of shootings have occurred from kids attending school, or just recently graduating. I think having a school psychologist on property at all times, kids would feel that they have someone to talk to, and with a trained professional on grounds, he/she could easily help identify potential risks and alleviate the problem.

To start off mental illness is a very serious issue and in no way am I taking away the severity of it throughout the United States. However, I think the show has only sparked debate and created more discussion on the issue. Suicide is such a difficult topic to talk about, but it is often the most difficult topics that are the ones considered to controversial. The show in my opinion is a very honest look at what happens, and honesty to many people can be too much to handle. I think 13 Reasons Why has the right intention, and when looked at as only an interpretation of what can happen, it tackles suicide in an honest approach.

This is a very tough question to answer, but one that I think can be easily explained. I have no problem with players kneeling to show what they believe in, however as a business, the NFL believes there was connection between kneeling and poor ratings. So from that standpoint I understand the rule and the reasoning behind the ban.

Yes I agree, I guess what I am trying to say is that the NRA does not have to be the main governing force, but rather a driving supporter of the group. I totally agree that a group like the NSA and FBI should lead. Thanks for bringing that up, I needed to clarify that.

So if selling the drugs seems to be the problem, what if we de-criminalize some of them. It creates a safer and regulated way of acquiring them. I don’t necessarily agree with this, but it might be worth a shot.

Having the embassy in Tel-Aviv was just as big of a slap in the face to Palestinians. Tel-Aviv was built on top of a prominent Arab coastal town that thrived in orange trade. The town known as Haiffa was a very popular destination and great cultural center for Arab people. I believe the media is blowing this out of proportion as the city of Jerusalem is regarded as international by the UN, and therefore makes it a much better location. I think the move is unnecessary at the current time, as the conflict between the Palestinians and Israelis has died down the past couple years. I am sure this will only cause disruptions, but when looking at this conflict in a broader spectrum, when hasn't there been turmoil over minor issues like this?
