Bring a shovel to bury the snakes in your life, it’s time to get rid of the poisonous relationships. Many people believe that they have good friends, in society if one does not have many friends, then they are considered a “loner”. Little does everyone know, these “loners” just realize which friends are snakes. Not many people have this talent.
For those who do not know the slang definition for a snake, here it is. “Jake Paul, Jake Paul is a snake”, according to Urbandictionary.com. If nobody knows why our boy Jake is a snake, I can better define it as a friend who slithers in at a vulnerable time, and strikes when you least expect it. If this hasn’t happened to you: congratulations, you might actually have a decent friend.
There are many ways to find out if there are snakes in your life. Pay close attention to the friends that only want to talk to you when they need something. If someone is not willing to drop everything and come see you in the hospital, drop the friendship. If something really great happens in life, and for some reason that friend can’t be happy for you… You’ve got a snake in your boot..
How many people have done you dirty? Should everyone take buzzfeed quizzes to see if they should end a relationship? Are certain relationships in your life being sabotaged? Are YOU a snake? Is your #ONE friend a snake?
In today’s society a lot of us might walk into the grocery store or gas station with the intention of getting a healthy snack or drink, instead of soda. Some people do not even walk in with the intention to do this.
One factor that could play into this is that healthier foods are more expensive then a lot of unhealthy foods which is a big part of problem. One idea to change this is maybe putting a heavier tax on junk/processed foods which could help. But what about people’s determination to eat healthier and stay fit. Because of the mentality that was created by our society it is now that everyone wants cheap and fast with the littlest amount of work possible. I believe a partial problem is peoples laziness honestly. They don’t have the determination or dedication to set up a meal plan or get up and exercise a couple times a week. This is a problem. And this again has to do with things the government or media is feeding us.
They want us to have everything cheep, easy, and with little to no effort yet they talk about problems our world has with obesity and almost creates unrealistic people sometimes for us to model. Such as the Kardashians or body builder instructors. A lot of these people have tons of money they can spend on personal trainers and expensive healthy foods. They also don’t have to worry about going to a job hours out of the day, leaving them plenty of time to work out or have someone make them healthy meals.
Do you agree? What are some ways you that could help with this problem? Is there anything that your family does that works well?
One of the biggest debates right now is whether or not a parent should vaccinate their kids. There is currently an outbreak of measles across the country. Just in 2019, there have been 764 cases. This is the highest that it has been in 25 years. NYC has even declared a state of emergency and has cited 84 people for refusing to vaccinate themselves or their kids. They are fining people $1000 and up to $2000 if they do not show up to court. The community that is mainly the cause of the rapid and uncontrollable spread is the ultra-orthodox Jews.
On a less serious note, it is not just measles that people refuse vaccinations. There are so many other diseases out there that are being spread from lack of public knowledge or their "over" knowledge. Here is a website where the mom talks about her reasons on why she hasn't vaccinated her child https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-11532/8-reasons-i-havent-vaccinated-my-daughter.html . Take a minute to read her reasons and think to yourself, is that logical?
I personally think that kids should be vaccinated. I have been vaccinated for everything, except the flu a couple years. What do you think? Should schools ban kids who aren't vaccinated? Is religion a good reason to refuse? Is it too extreme to be charging people who refuse?
Imagine yourself as a teacher in class one day and out of nowhere, a gut-wrenching scream is heard and then a gunshot echoes throughout the halls. Who is his next target? You. Immediately, you tell your students to go to the “safe area” in the room, lock the door, and run for safe containing a government-issued 9mm pistol. The shooter was prepared for this day though and had made copies of every key to every room inside of the school. In a panic, the combination slips your mind and everyone in the room, including you, dies. In today’s world, school shootings have become common, so common in fact that legislation to arm teaching staff with firearms has been debated upon many times. Across the country, schools are preparing to face this threat of school shooters, but many are unsure of how to deal with them. Many ideas have been tossed around, but the idea of arming teachers comes up again and again.
I believe that to give teachers firearms would produce more harm than good and would do nothing to deter someone from committing mass murder. Everyone has a mental breaking point, no matter who it is. Now put a gun in the hands of a student or an instructor who has snapped and what do you have? Regret and pain. By putting a lethal weapon within reach inside of a classroom, the likelihood of death is increased dramatically. Some would say that we could eliminate the previous problem by putting the gun into a safe. That would create another issue while not even solving the last one. The new matter in question would be what I brought up in the story. What good would a gun in a locked safe be in a time of crisis? I wish I could offer a single solution to this issue, but much like how there is more than one way to eat an apple, there is more than one way to shoot up a school.
So, what are your opinions? Should we put guns in the hands of teachers or leave it to the professionals? Or is the a middle ground? What would you do to curve the school and other mass shootings? Tell us in the comments below. Like and subscribe to the Church of Jazzus Crackers too.
