This Year in School...

By Bart Everson
            This year in school, I have been doing pretty well. I definitely did better than last year. I mostly like all my classes, except for math. I think math is boring. I’m not bad at it, but I really don’t like it. Right now in math we are learning about factoring polynomials. Blech.
           I like religion, because it's really fun, and right now we are making soap operas. (Long story… will post them later) They class I hate most though, is band. I like playing my instrument, but that’s all I want to do, I don’t want composers worksheets, and I really don’t want to practice. Double Blech. Other than that, I pretty much like all my classes.

Happy Valentine’s Day! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Do you have a special Valentine?

National Debt....

             As you probably know, our national debt is huge. Really huge. If we spilt up our debt, there would be $200,000 for every man, woman and child to pay. But Why?
We are self indulgent
We spend money we don't have
We need to lower our debt, or else other countries will stop lending us money, and we'll be even worse off. 68% of our borrowed money is from other countries, and they are getting impatient.
Obama refuses to pass this problem on to another generation
Doing nothing is not an option, and we need to lower the national debt.
But what I don't get is:
Why’s the deficit so high?
What is it we are paying for?
Was there something huge that started the debt?
When we were in the green with Clinton, why?
How can we pay back other countries without raising taxes?

        This past month for class, we've had to make flu prevention related public service announcements. I was in a group with Megan, Jacob and Tim. We definitely had an interesting time. Tim played our flu germ, but we couldn't figure out how to portray the flu. We ended up just making a giant paper germ and hanging it around his neck. We weren't sure people would be able to tell what he was, so we had to make a sign too. Unfortunately, Tim's costume kept ripping and we had to use packing tape to fix it. Paper probably wasn't the best choice. 
       I hope you enjoy our video, we spent a long time on it. If you want to see some of our classmate's videos as well, they are on Just search flu prevention under groups. These videos were made for a contest online. The winners get $1,000 for their school. Wish our group luck! Winners are announced February 11th. Enjoy our video:
