Hi, I am only a freshman in high school, but I am thinking about pursuing Politics as a career. Probably as a Politican. An advice on classes I should see if my school has or things I should probably research to see if it is for me would be great.
Not sure we can give you any actual advice on how to pursue a career in politics, but running for student council is a good start. That will give you a taste of what you’re in for. Good luck, kid!
In a recent interview with Bloomberg Television, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King (R-N.Y.) had tough criticism for the Occupy Wall Street movement.
"I mean, what is their position?" King asked. "They’re mad that other people are making money? They’re mad that there are no jobs in this country? Or not enough jobs? All of us believe that. We’re trying to find a way to do it. You don’t do it by living in dirt. You don’t do it by carrying out rapes. You don’t do it by carrying out anti-American slogans."
Is King right - is the movement disorganized? And has the Occupy Wall Street movement accomplished anything?
That’s today’s topic of discussion in the Arena, leave us your thoughts as well.
