This house supports the Dakota Access Pipeline.

There is a lot of controversy surrounding DAPL. Most of it surrounds the land the pipeline will be built on. The neighboring Native American reservation is concerned because it borders their water source and an old burial ground. Unfortunately the land has already been destroyed. As such it should be put to good use. !st I bring to you the simple economic benefit. It is very costly to transport oil by rail and diesel as we do know. Building the pipeline will drastically decrease the cost of dome...

Should Dogs Work?

http://www.readworks.org/passages/should-dogs-work-0 Dogs are meant to be pets. They live short lives compared to humans. They should be allowed to enjoy all of their days. Dogs are meant to be companions, not workers. Service dogs are put under too much stress. Their jobs are not fun. Some service dogs are servants. They do things like opening dresser drawers and pulling their owners' wheelchairs. Guide dogs for people who are blind and other servant dogs are not put in danger. But pol...

I don't think so...

Many women around the world can't even go to Wal-Mart without their husband's permission, for pete's sake. They're forced to marry strangers, and at a very young age. This is outrageous and people need to give women the freedoms they rightly deserve....
