Hello and welcome to the American Repository of Social and Economic Stances, or A.R.S.E.S for short. A friend and I one day got the brilliant idea to create a place where Americans – especially teenage Americans – may discuss their ideas and views in an honest, fair, and rather irreverent way! This blog was devised for the singular purpose of one thing: to relay our own thoughts and opinions on current and common issues that deal with our country, the United States. This is not a page of political party bantering, as morality is not always found within the borders of any single group. Here we believe in the freedom of speech. Once we are able to start up a forum, you may say anything you wish. I would like to ask though that you not act like a stupid ass. So, thanks for coming to A.R.S.E.S, and I hope you enjoy!
