In the article "No surprise: Snow coming back again on Sunday" this states that Colorado may be getting much more snow coming which relates to all of us. For some, it relates because we don't like snow. But for most of us, it means SNOWBOARDING! (Or skiing....) I want to get a few more times in for snowboarding! And this snow means I may be able to go snowboarding a few more times before this season is up! Thank you, Lords on Snow.

I happened upon a story today called "Company recalls some granola bars sold in Colo." which was set by The Associated Press which stated that the company Lovin Oven has had to call back some granola bars because they were found to have salmonella. This is important to me because personally, I enjoy a granola bar every now and then. And I may now base which granola bars I but off this. This will have an affect on the company as far as their sales. They may have more of an issue with selling foods now if they are out of business because of this problem of having problems with their granola bars.

I read an article today called "The U.S. National Debt and How It Got So Big" by Kimberly Amadeo and this was showing how the US debt was becoming such a big issue. Predictions show that by about 2020 the US debt will be around 23.1 trillion dollars of debt (from 13 Trillion and Counting) as of 3:26:11 the debt is $12,377,549,228,897 and counting. (National Debt Clock) which means we own that much money to mainly the Chinese since they are our main source of borrowing. This is not making China happy. This is a problem that has crept up on us and it must soon be fixed. If it is not fixed soon, we will be in a bigger problem than we already are. Over the course of 1 minute (3:27:55) the debt is now $12,377,554,968,596. That is an extra $5,739,699. This means we go more than $1,000 in debt every second, adding up to more than 1 Million dollars every minute. This numbers must be changed.

I happened upon an article today called "2 Fort Carson soldiers killed in traffic accident" and this is important because the soldier who crashed appeared to be drinking before he began driving. Drinking and driving is a serious issue in America and it must be stopped before it gets worse. Drinking and driving is one of the top killers of American lives. If drinking and driving could be fixed, it would be fixed as soon as possible. It must be stopped.

I viewed a video today called "Students Helping Students" and this movie was showing students all pitching in money to help pay for college when they arrived there to buy text books and food and the necessities of a college student. This is showing how every student should be. This shows that there are people out there still who are willing to help others as they have their struggles too. This shows that others will help students with everyday problems or education no matter the circumstances.

I happened upon an article today called Denver man faces 100 criminal sex counts, many involving kids which was stating a man who was caught with 100 sexual assaults. This is a horrible idea because our police should have found this man before he got that far. If the police force was more on top of this issue they would maybe have gotten to him earlier. This man is getting just what he deserves.

I read an article today called "Obama: U.S. to withdraw most Iraq troops by August 2010" which is basing the fact that president Obama wants to withdraw the troops out of Iraq. Many believe this is a horrible idea because this will just upset Iraq more than they already are. Basically, the plan is. all the way from the start of the war, we invade Iraq, destroy the entire country and leave them with almost nothing, then, in 2011, we just up and leave. Let me tell you something. The USA isn't exactly looked at as the nicest country. We have a reputation for being not the best. And if we are going to destroy a country and leave them with nothing and just leave, that will not please Iraq at all. We are basically saying "We came in to destroy your country and kill thousands, you clean it up." We aren't even going to help by lending money or any other help we can do. I think Mr. President has some thinking to do...
