Forsberg on buzzwords
|Head full of questions
By Keenan Singleton
As the saying goes, "Opinions are just like (elbows), everyone has one."
Well, here are a few of mine.
What is the greatest movie of all time?
Easy, it's not Titanic or The Green Mile; no, it's Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon.
For those who didn't see this Academy Award-worthy movie, it starred a black Bruce Lee named Bruce Leroy, the villainous Sho-Nuff, great martial art fights and Vanity, one of the most beautiful women of the '80s.
Should marijuana and other illegal substances be legalized?
Since I have never participated in any illegal activities (wink, wink), I can't really have a strong opinion either way, but weed never killed anyone, so legalize it.
Should gays be allowed to serve openly in the military?
I love America as much as the next guy, but I'm not fighting in anybody's war. With that said, if Johnny Sugarcakes wants to serve, I say let him.
Should prayer be allowed in public schools?
Yes and no. Group prayer over the p.a. system shouldn't be forced, but private, secluded prayer should be allowed.
Does America still require affirmative action?
This one's tougher than an overcooked steak. Even though we have tried hard to desegregate this nation, it still hasn't happened. I believe quotas are unfair, but some form of affirmative action is still needed.
And the most important issue facing America today ... Should KFC reveal its secret seven herbs and spices?
Hey, the Colonel is dead. Let the secret die with him.
