Equal education and rights should be every American’s first priority to provide for all people who come to America.
The recent actions of the Trump administration to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) has left many angry and in shock. Many feel that this was a distressing and reckless decision made. Though the act itself was extremely important, and repealing it would and is harmful and stressful for the Dreamers, hopefully this will implore Congress to make laws to protect them. Additionally, Trump made the statement on Twitter, “Congress, get ready to do your job - DACA!” This implies that it is time for our legislative branch to put into law something that no future president should even be allowed to make a decision on. This is a human rights issue, and the executive branch should not be able to make such decisions as the one Trump has recently made.

Why did I sign myself up for this? I hate scary movies. I’ve only seen two horror flicks: “Insidious,” and “The Devil Inside.” Both were creepy as fuck. So today, it’s not even the crazy killer clown that frightens me. My dad used to dress up like a clown. He had the entire outfit. He wore the giant red shoes, the crazy polka dot pants and shirt, and he even had the huge red nose that squeaked obnoxiously when you squeezed it. So clowns have never been a legitimate fear for me. I’m just afraid of scary movies. Because I’m likely to piss myself while watching this, I asked my boyfriend to go with me. I have to suffer, so my boyfriend must suffer too.
I’ve never felt so inclined to say the word, “Ew.” I probably said, “Ew” at least twenty or thirty times throughout the movie. Every time the word launched itself from my lips, my boyfriend would look over at me and laugh. Anytime I was shocked or scared, all I could manage to say was “Ew.” I think it was my own weird way to avoid screaming or jumping out of my seat.
