The Wall

My topic for the debate is the Border Wall and I got assigned the Con side of the debate. This is also my personal position on the topic. What I know? I know that the border wall is a very controversial topic in United States Politics. I know that Trump has been fighting Congress and the House of Representatives to secure funding to build the wall. I know that Trump caused the current government shut down in order to get the funding the wall he wants. I know that the wall will cost the United States at least millions to billions of dollars to build the wall since the border is mostly the Rio Grande river so the wall will have to be a few miles inside the border. And in Texas the land needed to build the wall is private land so the US Government would have to pay those people for their land. Some of the basic results I got when I searched “Border Wall Cons” are websites that list Pros and Cons of building the wall, websites that have why we should or should not build the wall, and one said “The 3 biblical reason to build the wall”. One logical way to address this topic? I have no clue to be truthful. An issue regarding the border wall would be that the the building immigrants must go to on the border to be processed are out dated and under equipped to handle the immigrants that cross legally now, so if Trump builds the wall and doesn’t do anything with the facilities that would be charged with handling all the immigrants would only lead to an increase in unrest among the immigrants. So instead of building the wall, Trump should send all the money he wants to the processing facilities so they can better equip themselves to handle all the immigrants getting processed. The emotions that can be brought into play are: pity for the immigrants that are fleeing trouble in their country and trying to make it to safety, and anger for all the effects now like the government shut down since Trump won’t budge on the wall.


Apple or Android? That is the debate I’m choosing to use. The two sides are Team Apple and Team Google. Apple argues for IOS by stating how secure iphones are with most viruses being directed towards Androids due to their open source system while iphone are “exclusive” and are a closed source system, how fast they are with new iphones having a new chip in them which alows them to do something twice as fast as other iphones and Androids, and how iphones are constantly being updated while Androids have a wide range of what version software they have. Team Android agrues on how much variety there is on Androids for apps and such since Androids use an open source system which allows people to get pretty much whatever they want, How cheap Androids are compared to iphones, and how Andriods has a better user experience with Google Assistant being more helpful than Siri and how Google has a huge information bank being a big structure for thye internet.

I’m for Team Apple. The only phones I’ve had have been iphones and they have been perfect while I’ve heared some friends who had Androids complain how they are slow or don’t function properly sometimes. Also some of the points that Team Apple pointed out help solidify my stance with Apple, I mean with better protection from viruses, better computing power, and how up to date iphones are, I’ll py a few extra dollars for an Apple product

2019, woah. So the school year has gone pretty good so far. I mean I was really stressed at some points but over all pretty good. Onething I could change/improve is procrastination. Something to do today or this week is to try nto finish my books for AR and begin the essay for the 16th but with my schedule probably not gonna happen😒 One thing that could really stop me is myself. I’ll want to get the project done but I’ll probably become lazy and push off the essay till like the day or two before it is due then freak out to find time to do it.
