    I think that president Obama shouldn't close Gitmo because noboby knows where to put them after Gitmo closes... it would be better to just keep it open.

    I am pretty optimistic that the economy will recover. I think president Obama's stimulus package will have a good impact on the overall American economy. I am really moved by the high school junior's dream of attending Ivy league. She must be depressed... Maybe the university should extend scholarship policy! President Obma's great leadership and Charisma are the things that I really like! I hope the global economic recession will be the thing of the past...

    – Geranimos Skull
    I cant believe that someone would want to steal some famous warriors skull!! That is sick and wrong.... GROSS

    I think that the economy is the most interesting to hear about because it keeps getting worse and worse and it would be good if everyone knew that. But also big stories like the Geronimo is nice to hear too.

    PANCAKE RACES!!!!! ummmm okay. Well anyway who does it and how do you sign up? I wonder who came up with the idea of pancake races.....

    February 25, 2009 at 8:06 am |

    i would want to eat the panckakes so dont put me in the race yummmie

    I'm thinking about not being in school becausee im REALLY sleepy and my up coming surgery . Why would some one steel gurnons skull??? ........ weird

  9. Kaitlyn

    Okay, so about Geronimo's skull.....Why in the world would anyone want to steel someone's skull??? Like do they make money off of steeling someone's skull, but why would anyone want to buy it. I think that it is wrong for some kids at Yale to do that to someone's remains and hide them in the school. It does seem sort of odd that his decedents are suing all these people to try and get Geronimo's skull back, but it is a lot of people and some of them don't really seem important.

    starting with Obama..... He will get us out of this mess, I am so glad he is our President. Sweater Vests??? UGLY! who would wear one of those? The story about Mia who wants to get into an Ivy-League school is really amazing and inspiring.

    They need to find some way to fix the economy or it is going to have even worse effects on our life styles.

    February 25, 2009 at 8:08 am |
  14. Jo

    Well... what's mostly on my mind is that Geronimo problem. Why would someone steal someone's skull or something like that? I've heard of body snatchers who steal corpses of famous people, but they nearly always get caught and do those criminals think they can get money off of stealing bodies? There is also about that family suing Obama. That was

    February 25, 2009 at 8:14 am |
  15. Gimme

    Wow, that is so cool I would so totally want to race in the pancake race. I personally think you would have to be a really good cook to do that type of flipping man! Or you just have to be a good baseball player! Ya go baseball!

    the skull should rightfully to their decendants. i would do the same thing as their cousins.

    I believe what is wrong with the economy is that we spend money on things that aren't necessary. Everyone got in this mentality of "keeping up with the Jones." To keep up they bought things on credit that were really unnecessary. It's ok to splurge with your money ONLY if you have the money; otherwise you should save and spend money on things that are truly necessary. Until people start being smart and saving there money and using it wisely...nothing is going to change. I know many don't agree with this but this is what I believe.

    What's on my mind is the economy. Its taking down our standard of living and is always on the news. No matter what, there is something on the economy. Its also making it harder for me to buy games. Which makes me angry.

    i think presedient obama should have given most of the money to schools, cause education comes first. 🙂

    I think someone should give the girl who was on the ivy league story a chance to show what she has when it comes to knowledge. She has obviously been through a lot and deserves a break.

    I think that Barrack Obama did a good thing for the people of America by making the stimulus package. I think Barrack Obama is a great leader. He makes great speeches.

    Actually, right now I'm thinking about what my future is going to be like. Whether I'm going to go to a really bog expensive college. Or to a cheap community college.

  26. Ashley

    The story on Geronimo is on my mind. That's kinda stupid to steal a skull. I wouldn'a have the guts to get in trouble.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:27 pm |
  27. Emmalou

    Since our econmony is struggling and there isn't a lot of money to go around, where is President Obama coming up with all of that dough to boost the economy? Does he have a stash?

    February 25, 2009 at 1:31 pm |
  28. Allen

    I think those bone people at Yale are a little deranged but i guess everyone needs something to believe in, but taking someone's remains is rather messed up.

    Cnn Student news talks about the president way to much. Enough already we all know how he feels and I don’t want to here any of his korny speeches anymore!

    February 25, 2009 at 1:33 pm |
  31. rick

    I think that president Obama is trying to lead the country on a better path, and fix what the past has left on our feet. So with him doing what he can, i think that he is doing what he should to make the future years more productive and safer then the recent.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:34 pm |
  32. Kirstie

    I think the skull should go to the family it belongs to but i think its strange that they want it now and not many years ago when it was stolen.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:34 pm |
  33. Abigail

    I think that the family has a right to see if the skull is in the T building. They should also do some experimenting to really figure it out. There shouldn’t be any reason why they should just wait to gather up evidence they should just go in and get the skull to get it over with.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:34 pm |
  34. Jessica

    i think that Obama should put alot of the money towards helping students out with college tuiton. As a student going off to college in the fall i know that that is one of the main things that myself and other people are thinking about. alot of parents dont have the money, or the stability in their jobs to be able to afford college on their own.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:34 pm |
  35. Cassie

    I'm just curious why would Geranimo's decendents want to sue Obama ? It's kind of confusing !!

    February 25, 2009 at 1:34 pm |
  36. JOSH

    The economy is taking down our standard of living and taking many children's futures away at big schools and getting them into an in-state school that's cheaper.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:35 pm |
  37. Devin

    i dont think it matters if Geronimo was a prisoner or not when he was killed, the family should always have the right to a persons remains. i believe the family should get his remains back, especially since the bones were not legally extracted from the grave. and if Yale wants the skull so bad, why not just offer the family money, to see if they will sell them.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:35 pm |
  38. Courtney

    Whats on my mind is my schooling and my finacial aid. I am going to DeVry University. Just gotta figure out my fincial aid stuff, when I'm starting either in July or September. Also, how much I'll be getting. I'm really nervous and really excited about starting college.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:35 pm |

    i think they should find his skull because he was a great member of history. i think the guy thats sewing is just tryin to get money

    I am a sr. this year and am looking into a college. However the costs of the ones i am looking at are around 35- 43 thousand $ per year. And the ones that are more expensive don’t hand out athletic scholarships which makes it that much harder. I think all schools should give athletic scholarships to help out athletes.

    I would own in that pancake race. Fo sho.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:35 pm |
  42. Kenny

    Geronimo's remains should be returned to the rightful owners, and that is his direct family. I think that if the family wants the remains they should have them. I would be furious if my relatives remains were not in my family but in some display case.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:35 pm |
  43. blaine

    what are the rules to that pancake race because i think those competetors cheated. They should have to take a bite while its in midair and whoever eats it the fastest should win.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:35 pm |
  44. Joschuah

    I dont think raising taxes on those richest 20 % be a good idea. It would result in a very negative impact on the overall economy and consumer spending, and in turn, would stifle economic growth and job creation. Furthermore, raising taxes at this time; when we are facing a possible severe recession is doubly wrong – President Hoover did exactly that in early 1930s – thus contributing to the Great Depression and making it even worse. Yet, why does Obama keep on promising to raise taxes on the richest 5 % and claiming that would be a very good idea.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:35 pm |
  45. Bethanny Rose

    I think the whole world needs to chill out for about 2 seconds an just breathe. Everyone is so uptight nowadays and that just adds to the stress. Sure the economy is bad and people are loosing jobs, but people are trying to fix it. There's no point in freaking out about it. Acting crazy doesn't solve anything, it just creates more chaos.

    I also feel really bad for Geronimo's family. Yale had no right to take the remains and the body should be given back to the family so they can bury it there way. Everyone has diffrent beleifs about the afterlife and maybe his family feels like Geronimo can't rest until they bury him the way he needs to be buried. I know I would feel the same for my family. The government had no right to just bury him, especially since he was a POW.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:37 pm |
  47. Emmalou

    I think that the stimulus refund things should be given to teenagers. We don't have bills to pay so we will go purchase things and we will boost the economy. Adults have bills and are either going to pay bills or save it, neither of which will help.

  48. Shayne

    I think it is ridiculous how much collage costs. I would really love to go to a good collage but because of the costs there is no way I will be able to afford it. These days only the wealthy or those willing to put themselves in major debt can get the education that it takes to become successful. In my opinion this is not fair to everyone else who has the potential.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:38 pm |

    I really do not believe Obama will get us out of this mess. If one stimulus plan didnt work why would another?

    Why on earth would anyone want to steal Geronimos bones...thats just odd. Have you ever thought about why we yell Geronimo when we like jump off cliffs when it means "one who yawns"....thats odd too.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:38 pm |
  51. Joschuah

    The fact that some kids are siding with Obama's economic plan is obsurd! do they not realize that he is sending our generation into debt? And in the mean time making lifes difficult for families today.

    February 25, 2009 at 1:40 pm |
  52. Erica

    its gona be harder getting scholarships for college cause there are less of them and more people applying. Alot of people wont have enough money to go to a nice school.

    I am tired of hearing about A-Fraud. We all know he took steroids stop making such a big deal about. Basball should susspend for a few games and get it over with.

    February 25, 2009 at 2:50 pm |
  56. Daniel

    I think that Geranimo's family should get back his skull because it would bring closure to the family and they could give him the proper burial that he deserves.

    February 25, 2009 at 2:51 pm |
  57. michael

    i think the indians should get the skull back. i mean if one of my family members died and some body stole there skull, and it was important that i had the skull then i would do what ever i could to get it.

    February 25, 2009 at 2:51 pm |
  58. Kayla

    I don’t know why somebody would want to take a famous human skull. I feel bad for Geranimos, people just need to let him rest in peace.

    February 25, 2009 at 2:51 pm |
  59. Jordan

    Personally I fell as though, stealing someone’s skull is completely unnecessary. If it’s supposed to be a historical artifact, it should remain where it’s supposed to be, whoever stole it is just…ridiculous.

    February 25, 2009 at 2:52 pm |
  60. Braunagel

    I don’t understand why someone would want to steal someone’s famous skull. I think its gross and just wrong.

    I think being a senior at this time with the economy so bad can be rough because schools are so expensive so it limits some people’s choices and makes them have to go to cheaper schools.

    February 25, 2009 at 2:53 pm |
  62. Marie

    I think people shouldn’t worry about saving money right now and just spend money like crazy. They’re making the economy worse by saving money.

    February 25, 2009 at 2:56 pm |
  63. Kyle-j

    I am under the impression that in our current economic state that our future generations will be the ones to suffer. If the government keeps spending with know end we as a nation will not have the means to support our future generations to come. President Obama claims that by the end of his first term the economic debt will be cut in half, I have to disagree, buy shelling out billions of dollars on business debt we are increasing our debt as a country and therefore creating a large snowball effect that will in turn bury us further in debt.

    As a senior in high school I can say honestly that the social condition is very frightening for those hoping to move on to college. I come from a small town and a modest family income. When before my hopes only went as far as community college and two years at a university they are even lower now with layoffs and struggling economy.

  67. Alexis

    As a high school senior preparing to head off to college this fall, I understand the stress that limited financial support and indecision puts upon a person and their family. Due to the economy lapse, most families, mine included, are short of extra funds. You would think that the lack of money would result in lower prices of necessary things such as health care and education. But instead of costs going down, if anything, they are going up. I had to set aside any delusions of going to a distinguished institution and settle with a small Washington public college that my family could help pay for without the help of the financial aide we do not qualify for. For being so strongly encouraged, and at times compulsory, school is becoming less affordable and thus robbing Americans of their right to learn.

    I think Obama's speech was well planned. He touched on topics such as kids not going to college because they don't have the money and other things that are really affecting us today.

    i think that people should just leave that skull alone because they already have one why do they need another one.

    February 25, 2009 at 6:53 pm |
  78. Allyssa

    I think it is extremely wrong for them to not give Geronimo's relatives his remains, and even worse, they won't admit that they took them even though there is so much evidence that supports it.

    February 25, 2009 at 7:39 pm |
  79. J.W.

    Carl, have you ever thought of entering a pancake race? I think you have the skills to win, as long as you have a bottle of mayple syrup close at hand!

    You are making me hungry! The pancake race was awesome.Geronimo's skull is not "skull napped "and sweaters and vests. I agree with you on that one and that is a real no-no! I watch anime too but that is not on my mind. I like pancakes too.

    Germany gets this whole WEEK off for rose monday/mari gras/ash wendsday/lent !!!!!!!! *sounds of outrage* but such is life *tone of resignation* I wonder what the "skull and bones society" is or what it was called because apart from the taking of Geronimo's bones that sounds kida cool studying bones ect...... ecomomy.......ouch, its kida sad that people are taking such hard falls as a result of the economy. Although I think that within the span of about 5 yrs the economy will even out. I thought that the stimulis bill was alittle much. Money wise, I think that if your going to save a drowning person its best not to overwelm yourself as well as the drowning person. I love the sweater vests!!!!!! (just dont get carried away with your fashion expertise) bye bye cyberspace

    February 25, 2009 at 8:40 pm |
  86. Hill

    Well, if descendents of Geronimo himself are requesting that they have rights to and keep the remains of the great hero, then I say go ahead. I mean, they are his family.

    February 25, 2009 at 9:18 pm |
  87. Tanyn

    I think that would be awesome to participate in... Do they get to eat the pankake after they get to the finish line? Do they get to put anything on it?... I could definently have a pankake at the moment!

    I think our government is making a huge mistake with this stimulus that they passed. Not only is it a bad idea, but the money that is being divided is not in any way, shape, or form going to the right things. Kids of today and even their kids will paying off this bill their whole lives. Higher taxes is what will happen.

    I gues all the words of Carl Azuz in my mind. The most important thing is that he is in my mind and that is the reason I finish my work earlier and go to watch cnn student news to get myself updated.

    I think it is a shame that many people cannot afford to go to the colleges they want. However if they want to go there bad enough why not work to get a scholorship. Im just saying theres no one but your self to blame.

    I think it's a shame that a "good college" seems to be equated with Ivy League and/or the amount of money that is charged for tuition. I live in Illinois and we have fantastic universities here. And, we also have fantastic two year Junior Colleges whose credits all transfer to our state universities. I feel quite sure that there and many states that could say the very same thing. Maybe students need to stop being so hung up on the NAME of the college and start worrying about the quality of the education. They should be judging the college by the majors that are offered and how good the programs are and they need quit being such label snobs and get their priorities straight.

    I don't know much about the Stimulus Plan, but so far it doesn't soud like it would work... so maybe it might help us or put us in greater dept, but right now, nobody knows for sure

    obama said during the campain that he would pull the troops out but now he is only puting more in to the terrerist countries but that is the way to win the war

    I think that Obama is spending too much money and I don't agree with the stimulus plan. When I was watching the news with my parents it said that Obama spent money on stopping bullies and tatoo removel. My question is how is that going to create jobs?!

    i think it was wrong to steal the remains and it was a wierd idea to wear sweater vests– who would wear that! Obama's idea to save the banks is wrong they should control their own banks.

    I think that all of the prisoners should be put on trial and then return to serve their sentence. Gitmo isn't a bad prison. they get 7 hours to "socialize" and they get to watch TVs and read newspapers.

    I think that Obama gives good speeches, but he says .. "this is what we have to do" and everyone cheers, he needs to state...The how, when, where, and why. He just tells us what.

    Why don't they just print out more money? Wouldn't that help the economy? I guess I don't know where they would enter it into circulation but they could find somewhere to.

    Who would steal a skull of a famous person. Those people should be arrested to steal an important artifact. Why do people say Geronimo when the jump off of something? Did Geronimo jump off of something that was really famous?

    this wasn't exactly an issue on the show, but i feel that it is one that needs to be addressed all the same. I feel that it is amazing that they expect middle and high schoolers, who need much more sleep than anyone else, to wake up at six thirty, when the elementary school kids, who most of the time will wake up that early anyways, get to sleep until seven thirty. something seems backwards here...

  122. Ben

    I was thinking about the economy. Why doesn't everyone just put all their money in the banks and then the government wouldn't have to bail them out and everything would go back to the way it was before? Or do people just like to spend their money to much?

    February 26, 2009 at 8:23 am |
  123. Matt

    Whats on my mind is Obama's stimulus package. The definitely think it will work with all of the careful, long hours put into trying to get this to work. I hope his address to congress will help convince some Republicans to agree with his package and help Obama get our country on the right track.

    I am only 13 and I have to start thinking about college. I have had to think about were I am going to get the money and what school can I afford to get into. Before I thought that I shouldn't be thinking this until I'm a Junior in High-school. I think that when you are young you should have the right to do wghat youy swant and not care about those type of things.

    On the story The World Reacts I do believe more troops should be put in Iraq and Afghanistan, but the people there shouldn't be mad at us because were leaving. We didn't have to go there in the first place.

    Obama has it all wrong. Why do we need to spend $200 billion on war!!!!?? We're already in a huge debt, we need to use that money for better things like heathcare and bailing out the automotive industry. But I love the show! My teacher, says that you are his hero!!!!! Keep up the best news for kids!

    What's on my mind. Well school the costs and plus all the homework all the time. It gets boring, and annoying because I never have time for myself at home. I don't even get to read half the time.

    What I am wondering is why we are sending more troops out to other countries? Obama said he was bring our family home. So why is he sending hundreds more to Afghanistan?

    Geronimo's remains should not have been messed with. That's just plain rude to the spirits. His final resting place should be in the ground or something, not in a show case. The other thing on my mind is the dog on today's show. That was awesome! I wish my dog could do that! Instead, she just slobbers everywhere.

    Honestly the only thing that I'm thinking about that's from CNN is the sweater vest. I seriously very strongly dislike sweater vests! When I come across someone wearing a sweater vest I either laugh or puke. Their just SO ugly I mean who wears those anymore, oh, my bad, you do! Just a quick tip......... look through todays magazines not the ones from the 70's!

    What's on my mind is if I am going to keep my perfect wrestling season. Also how long will it be until baseball season will start for us. I pretty sure I am going to keep my perfect wrestling season because we got 3 tournaments left and I got 2 back to back.

    Well what I'm thinking about is how CNN news is sometimes really boring and doesn't grab my attention but then there are times that it is interesting. I wish we didn't watch CNN but then again i sometimes do learn something.

    If were having a problem with the economy, why can't we print like a fofillion dollars. No one will know or ask for the gold to show it. So why does it matter so much, get printing!

  162. Dana

    I thought the the pancake races were weird, but cool. What if Parliament did that more than 200 years ago? When the soldiers heard about that, everyone would be laughing too hard to fight. The war would be over in two seconds! Then where would we be today?

    February 26, 2009 at 11:03 am |
  163. mariah

    I think that it would be cool to see a dog ride a bike. i have never seen one do that before and that was okay it was cool. Maybe i can see if my cat can ride a bike i love to see animals doing really weird things and i like to see usual creatures can do unusual things.

    February 26, 2009 at 11:03 am |
  164. Martha

    Whats on my mind? Well, I'd have to say mainly, our government's current stance. In anything really. I'm interested in knowing what's coming with our nation and keeping myself informed. For example, the current economic policy. I really wondered about about that. What all it involves. The simple things that every American should know about.

    The money and college issue is big in our house. We use to raise animals and take stuff to the fair to get money for the prizes but then we stopped doing that. Now I wonder how I will be able to get college money.

    February 26, 2009 at 11:04 am |
  166. Sarah

    Even though I try to think about all of those things that Carl mentioned in the prompt, all I can think about was that Dalmatian dog in Japan. I wonder what type of training it would take for a dog to do that. But I've heard that Dalmatians are smart anyway. It is also kind of funny that we find things like that humorous. I mean, that dog story traveled from the other side of the world to us, just for a chuckle. We are so easily entertained....

    February 26, 2009 at 11:04 am |
  167. Kelsey

    I want to give my thoughts on a couple of issues such as the pancake races and the the college situation. Well, my thoughts on the pancake races is that I don't really see the point of it, I mean ya maybe it's fun, but why pancakes?
    I was really hoping to get into a good school when it is my time to go to college, but if the we don't have the money then I don' think I will be able to, so I hope there is a light at the tunnel.

    What's on my mind..... Mardi Gras is so awesome i love all of the beads when I get the necklaces i make stars on them and give them to my friends or who ever wants them. Also I would never wear a sweater vest!!! They're UGLY!!

    What's on my mind is that Einstein robot; that thing was awesome. I find it amazing that such a thing can do that! Imagine what technology can do next... maybe a time machine. That would be boss!

    I believe that our country is tremendously screwed and everyone knows it. I mean its getting so hard now that kids can't even go to the school they want to because they can't afford it. Everyone keeps talking about how the schools need money but really they don't...........the schools get an average of $35,000 a year from each student!!! That is ridiculous why would they need more money from the government.

    I feel that the economic down fall is going to affect all the states and a lot of people are going to lose their jobs. Also I think it wronge with all the houses that are getting taken away ffom hard working people

    February 26, 2009 at 1:42 pm |
  186. jake

    my neighbors (an older couple) are losing their house due to the foreclosures caused by the economic downfall. they are both retired and the husband has alzheimers disease which means he needs a lot of "looking after" by his wife who is very old and can only do so much. and with losing their house, they have no one or any where that they can go to. the government has brought up this situation and has said they were going to do something about it; but how many more needy people are going to lose their houses due to foreclosure before anything gets done? If the government isn't going to anything about it right now, at least make an understanding of the people that have "extra needs" and try to help them find a way through it.

    i don't think that it is right to take other peoples skulls out of the ground. they can put a curse on them selves by doing that.

  188. Katie

    I think that the Mardi Gras is a great idea and is a good tradition to keep alive. It’s cool that it’s still popular after Hurricane Katrina and during the recession. It should definitely help the economy or at least New Orleans’ economy because all those people are coming in and spending money on useless stuff just to have fun which doesn’t happen much anymore.

    February 26, 2009 at 2:39 pm |
  191. Mr. B

    I'm not sure what to say to our students here in the mid-western states about all of the hub-bub regarding going to an Ivy-League school. We would just like our kids to have a "vision" of how additional education can help increase one's future salary potential...and that could come from any type schooling whether it be from trade school, technical schooling, a two-year community college or a four year college or university. It really doesn't matter where you go for your schooling, what matters is what you do with it once you have your degree. David Letterman and Papa John's pizza owner both went to Ball State University! Go Cards!

  192. Jonah

    I fully support Mr. Bernanke's desire not to nationalize banks. I agree with him that it is not necessary. The nationalization of a bank is a scary thought. I do like the idea of the stress test, however, and think that it will really help in the troublesome days ahead.

    I agree with Alexis, up there, I am also a Senior and I also have to settle with a small public school instead of chasing a dream and going to a 4 yr. school and becoming a pilot. I am not likeing the stimulus plan, and had I been 18 during the elections I wouldn't have voted for Obama either. He is to sure about what he is doing and I don't trust him.

    Okay, so about Geronimo’s skull…..Why in the world would anyone want to steel someone’s skull??? Like do they make money off of steeling someone’s skull, but why would anyone want to buy it. I think that it is wrong for some kids at Yale to do that to someone’s remains and hide them in the school. It does seem sort of odd that his decedents are suing all these people to try and get Geronimo’s skull back, but it is a lot of people and some of them don’t really seem important.

    In the pancake race, were there obstacles? And if there was, did the racers have to run over slippery mayple syrup?

    People should not be taking things from a place thats never been messed with since he was buried or just left there to die or whatever it just should not be messed with plus it could just maybe bring out some disease that hasnt been around for so long...... you never know whats going to happen.

    wouldn't people have a better chance now to get in to ivy schools, most people are looking at state school and theres less of a chance getting in there then high priced schools?

    I think that in-flight cell phoning can be dangerous because some people can put bombs in there cell phones, and it would be really sad if we have a 9/11 attack again also it make airplanes really noisy...

    I think that Obama's stimulus plan is a good idea and it needs to be done, but they are putting the money in places that won't affect the economy in certian areas. For example, I haven't heard of any money going into the medical fields other than possibly hospitals. They need to put money into the companies in the United States that make drugs and equipment.

    February 26, 2009 at 6:03 pm |
  217. Alex

    I think that a dog learning to ride a bike is pretty awesom...but I think Obama is just trying to get everyone to side with him before he throws our nation into such a deep debt. Obama seems like a nice person but he has some poor views his ideas are good but our nation can't afford it.

    February 26, 2009 at 6:17 pm |
  220. Taylor

    The economy will eventually turn around, with obama as our president he should help in this recession. He has a high approvement raing among america and is very intelligent. For america was created off the ingenuity of great minds and obama could be another one.

    I'm a big fan of Obama- but from what my father told me about his stimulus package... I'm not so sure about it. Does it mean that I'm going to have to pay the goverment something when I'm older?

    I myself think that he shouldn’t close gitmo, I think it is a very bad idea. I see it as they are torturing them to get information out of them that can be very useful to the untied states. When they do get released they might hold a grudge on the united states and I think it is a very bad idea. I know that they are more like P.O.W (prisoners of war) then anything but the information is really important.

    February 26, 2009 at 7:38 pm |
  226. Ashley

    Obama's stimulus plan may help now, but it isn't helping out generation. All it's doing to the future generations is putting a higher debt on the United States and the next payers of America are going to have to pay for something that we didn't and won't be able to have a say in. it's unfair to the fact our future doctors and lawyers are going to be paid less because of the debt that happened that wasn't under their control.

    I don't think it is right to sue Yale University because the native-American legend's descendants should see if it is his skull or not and sue the Order of Skull & Bones.

  231. caroline

    I think one of Obama's first things he does, is to work with the troops. It's obvious that they are being helpful in Iraq and Afganistan, so why not leave them there? He also needs to make freinds with the leaders from around the world, so we can all help each other out, and not get into deeper trouble.

    Obama is totally going to ruin this country. And Nooooooo this economy is not all bush's fault, it is Clintons fault too. Obama is just digging us in a deeper hole with this spreading of the wealth and such. Electing Obama was a huge mistake and I knew it would be too. Like FOX news said," he keeps changing his mind," during the electon and now. The man cant't get his story straight. i hope inn the futrure Obama can prove me wrong. I think he is really just overwhelmed with presure right now. I think we should go along with the Republican party's plan.

    Does the government realize that any one decision affects the teenagers and young kids lifes. They seem like they don't care how it affects us teenagers just as long as the job gets done. Does any adult realize that the choices they are making for this country will come back to the teenagers of today and it us hard because, we are still growing up.

We are having to sell it because of the economy and because the prices are rising in building supplies. I would like him to donate to us!!!!! We have been building for almost 2 years and my parents designed it with everything they dreamed of. I would really love to be able to move into that house. Please!!!!!

    I have been thinking about the eye for an eye subject that you guys brought up this week. I know many people see it as revenge for the law to blind him the way he blinded her but if we could all get revenge on someone who hurt us, we would all turn blind. It just isn't right to get revenge no matter how badly somebody hurt us or how upset we are. But, this doesn't mean I agree with them just getting away with it. I think they deserve jail time or something of that nature, but not the same punishment they may have put on somebody else (such as an eye for an eye).

    My high school journalism class loved the story about the grandma that whacked the bad guys with her frying pan! Maybe we could use some of the goverment stimulus money to supply more grandmas with frying pans. Who knows, it could cause a drop in the crime rate!

How lame!" and, "square dancing?! Thats for old people!!" I hate it. I love dancing, and all my friends love it too! I wish it could have a higher reputation in the world. One way to meet new people is to get out in the world and dancing is one fantastic way to do it. I know you guys do little bits on kids who have achieved great things, i would like it very much if you could do one on dance, be it ballet, square dancing, ballroom dancing, jazz, african, or hip hop, I think the world needs to shake of some worrys and go dancing with some friends!!! I'd also like it very much if you could put this in the news. Thanks!

    i know its kind of off topic but Obama should never have signed the Freedom of Choice act. Its unfair and if he passes the bill on where all hospitals must do abortion if requested, lots of hospitals would close.

    I'm wondering why Mardi Gras, people make it seem like such a great holiday just people having good wholesome fun, but when you tune in on the daily news they show inappropriate behavior just to get a pair of bead thrown at them. Shouldn't Mardi Gras just be about the holiday?!
    P.S- Your show rocks and my social studies period watches it everyday.. my teacher is kind of obsessed ;D

    i dont like the simulas pacage or wat ever. It just puts us more in dept. we ppl who r like 12-15 shouldnt have to pay for the goverments mishaps. Its not fair when we rnt the 1s who did this. When we get jobs they will be sucky 1ns for like $1.50 an hour or somethin... Its not right at all. not at all and that is even if we do get jobs. some of us will be liven on the streets if our debt rate keeps going up.

    I think that the honorable Mr.Obama is willing to put it all on the line in order to make this country strong again. The president always lokks for a greater out come even if it is good or bad.

    natives and i think they should give it back.

    we think that having cast iron cook wear is awesome even though it is used as a wepon. the boys should have hit up a diffrent house because everyone knows that old ppl and cook wear dont work.

    we think that the old grandma with the frying pan is one of the most hysterical things ever! i mean come on, a 70 year old fighting young people, and they only leave with $10, thats pretty funny!

    The thing about the pancake race was pretty cool. So go buy some syrup and some pancakes, and you to can have a race of your very own with some pancakes. And you have a nice vest...

    well i think what obama is going to do with the money that hes going to give some away is wrong becuase then were going to have to pay for that money and the people after us two.

    March 2, 2009 at 1:18 pm |
  336. Sarah

    This is in response to David's comment on the show. He asked how hard it was to land a jet on the Hudson River. Let's just say that it has NEVER been done before and this was the first successful landing where everyone lived on water. Let alone the Hudson River where there are a bunch of boats coming in and out of port. Hope that helps!

    AIG is on my mind. Ok I understand the face that AIG is too big to fail and i support the congress or the president or who ever is deciding to give them money. How ever, they can not keep giving them money. Sorry that is too many second chances.

    My suggestion? The government or congress or all of them should take AIG apart. Break the company down and make is more manageable. Maybe re-route some of the companies that are insured with AIG to other companies who are not so underwater. I know that is easier said than done, but something needs to be done.

    March 2, 2009 at 5:22 pm |
  343. Abi

    I do not think that by giving the government more money, the economy will be stimulated. People need to feel like they have money to spend so they can go out and actually spend it. The government does not usually produce comsumer goods, making the deficit larger and more of a problem and in turn only taking more money from the wealthy.This nation has been held up by private businesses for many years and we need tor realize that soon there will not be any more of other peoples money to spend.

  347. Jonah

    I am thinking that President Obama should not be opening all of these files on President Bush. I think that he should just let the files be. With the stuff about the anti-terror files, I don't need to know what is going on behind the scenes, as long as it means a safer country. I think that Bush got so much criticism, that we should all just let him be.

    March 2, 2009 at 7:07 pm |
  348. Fang

    why cant poeple just leave Obama alone. I mean he won the votes. He is not leaving for 4-years, so stop talk bad about him, it just gets old

    March 2, 2009 at 7:13 pm |

    Why not talk about TWILIGHT the book. Poeple read that ever were and it would made a lot of kids lisen to the story because everyone loves that book. LOL

    Hey obama spread the wealth. obama talks big but does he show it? he does not i think. all the spending are little towns like denmark wisconsin going to see that money? i highly dought that. whe should not have pork barrel spending. spread the wealth. i mean come one obama help the small companys like billy bo's trucking not the auto companys. THEY GOT THEMS SELFS IN TROUBLE. Is obama going to care when main street market closes. No all he seems to care about is wall street. what about main street obama. i would like u to see the poverty and see u live under the poverty line. i want u to live pay check to paycheck. obama has to focus on small town america not beverly hills . thanks and god bless

    Obama is a great president but sometimes i think he makes,not so great, decision's,and why is there tax's with all we have to do is donate.

    Adults need job's to feed there family,with all the tax's and no job openings that can't happen!! =(

    I thought that it was awesome how those spices are actually really healthy for you.

    March 3, 2009 at 9:48 am |

    I was interested in your spice segment. We just learned about herbs and how they were used by early Native Americans and pioneers. It was cool to see a connection with spices.

    If you go on myspace, facebook, or bebo be careful because there are alot of sick people in the world. And they can even track you through your myspace, facebook, or bebo, and the sad part is that you don't even know that they can do that but trust me they can, and most likely will. Well they might or they might not. But just make sure you know what your doing on the internet.

    March 3, 2009 at 2:06 pm |
  365. Rachel

    I think it is really dumb that they let Michel Phelps get of the hook like he did because he basicaly said that he took the drug and i think that he should have all of his medals from the Olyimpics tooken away and they should re-do the swimming for men this year if that is possible at all because no one else is aloud to take drugs and get away with it so why should some guy that won a bunch of gold meadles be aloud to because he probably was taking them during the Olympics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    March 3, 2009 at 2:29 pm |
  366. Jon

    Whats mostly on my mind is the War on Terror. I don't even remember why the war started iin thi first place or when for that matter. I've noticed in all the history reports and contry reports war had to take place some time and also I can't remember a time when the human race has turned its back on war, besides the Cold War.

    March 3, 2009 at 2:30 pm |
  367. Rachel

    whats on my mind is that I dont think that the state should waste this much time and money to bale AIG out because they made some poor chocies. I know the owner of a reasturant where i live and i know that the state wouldn't help him if his reasturant went under but since AIG is a huge company it's ok to spend so much money on them and help them out. I think if your going to do that the state should help all the businesses that are going under in the United States.

    March 3, 2009 at 2:36 pm |
  368. melinda

    Even if we are in a big hole what can we do? I mean it shouldn't all have to be up to Obama. He is just one person. Even if we can't get out of this hole we have to just keep living our lifes till we do. Don't just look to Obama look to yourselfs and ask what can you do to help get us out of this hole that everyone of us has made.

    hey, Carl, I think that the cool little house in the cave, is the coolest, most awesomest thing EVER!!!!!!! I'd love to live in a house like that, but I think that I'd be alittle afraid about the bugs that'd live trhere with me, I mean it's in a cave.

    I think what the old lady did to the people breaking into her home was awsome!!!! I wish my grandma would do the same. Knowing her she would too!! I would do the same thing if i was in the position!!

    March 3, 2009 at 7:49 pm |
  373. Autumn

    What's on my mind is the stimulus package. I dont really like President Obama's stimulus package. I know that it's supposed to stimulate the economy but all it's doing is sending our generation into debt and how fair is that to us kids? Not fair at all. All we do is beg our parents to buy us stuff and that helps the economy right? So why should we have to suffer?

    March 3, 2009 at 7:56 pm |
  374. Jake

    The stimulus package is not necessary. It will put us in an even worse recession or even a depression all were going to do is have to pay it back in taxes anyway. so sure it MIGHT help us for a little while but when taxes roll back around we are deeper in the recession than before.

    March 3, 2009 at 8:03 pm |
  375. John

    Hi Carl, i am from a school called Bulloch Academy and we visited the CNN center in Atlanta, GA. We saw you on the balcony of the second floor and all screamed and waved and you waved back. You are truly inspiring and my hero.
    Shoutout to Buloch Academy Mrs. Burnette's class. Statesboro GA

    I think socialism is the right answer for our problems in this economy at the moment. It will bring hope and encouragement for the youth and free our minds from the torture we are put under everyday.

    March 4, 2009 at 1:20 am |
  379. Kaitlin

    What is on my mind is that President Obama is over spending and he hasn't even been in office for 100 days. Our ecomomy is doomed for a deeper recession. Oh, and sweater vest basically the best thing ever.

    March 4, 2009 at 2:08 am |
  380. Samantha

    What's on my mind is this. In my Social Studies class, my teacher, Mr.George, had an email that said that the Stimulous Package is like taking water from the deep end of a pool and dumping it in the shallow end. When you are done, you are at the same place as when you started. All the water is in the same place. You have just wasted a lot of time on something that won't change anything.

    March 4, 2009 at 1:20 pm |
  381. Jessica

    Well all I have to say is that Carl needs new material (no offence Carl) and someone's skull stolen that is so wrong if I was that sprit I would haunt them until they give my head back to my revetives! Also I cant see myself in a sweter vest and thanks for the nightmares about that now! Also would you please put this on Cnn stundent news! I always wanted to be on but I have been busy!

    March 4, 2009 at 3:55 pm |
  382. Shira

    I think it's important to explain what's going on in Israel right now. Many students are unaware of what's really going on and believe all the citizens of Israel are safe because there was a cease fire. However, there are still attacks from Gaza and I really wish Karl would address them! Please help Karl, for Israel's sake and my own!

    March 4, 2009 at 4:07 pm |
  383. Rae

    What's on my mind is how I'm going to pay for college- I'm still in middle school but its already starting to seem like a problem. It's really unfair- in my opinion, money should have nothing to do with education. Learning shouldn't come at a price.

    March 4, 2009 at 7:29 pm |

    Dear Carl,
    I am an eight grade student at Bulloch Academy. The CNN Center was awesome and it was even cooler seeing you. Thanks for mentioning us on the show. On a past show someone commented that they did not like sweater vests. I think they are awesome and wear them all the time.

    March 4, 2009 at 9:53 pm |

    I used to be known as the funny punny girl at school. I'm nothing compared to you now, Carl.

    Carl, you know how you had that show where that girl had over 15,000 text messages... well i have her beat by almost 500

    im on no school breaks or anything, i do all my texting in school or at home, yet i still can get that much

    March 4, 2009 at 11:21 pm |
  388. Jonathan

    Wouldn't it be easier for the economy if everyone just lowered the prices on everything? That way people would have money to spend and it wouldn't make businesses go bankrupt

  391. Joshua

    I feel that the DOW is a good thing for the eonocmy. to show how its going. But people use it to much to get there info on the eonocmy and thats what casue people to freak out about the situatuon that we are in. If people would sit back and look at other places they would see that things will get better.

    March 5, 2009 at 9:50 am |
  392. Madeline

    If everyone was more confinant and ignored they dow the economy would do better. People would spent money, and the buisnesses wouldn't have to cut so many jobs so people then would have more money to spend. We don't need to spend billions of my generations dollars to get out of this crisis.

    March 5, 2009 at 11:12 am |
  393. Gavin

    What's on my mind is the auto-bailout. I'm very concerned with the way that American tax-dollars are being spent. I do not agree that money should be given to failing companies, it has never been an American value to reward the losers. I say let them go down, take the money from the auto-bailout and give it too the venture capitalists to find a new and innovative brand to be the face of the American auto industry.

    On my mind right now it my future. I am 13 and I am already worried about not having enough money to pay for college and worrying about not spending too much of my parents' money.

    In response to Geronimo's reamins, They never should have messed with his grave site. Graves are not meant to be messed with and they should leave those graves alone. That was very random and selfish for those people to demand his remains. I mean, he's already dead and gone. It shouldn't matter anymore.

    I have a big and interesting question.
    if the economy is so bad, why dont
    Obama makes lots of money and give like a million of dollars to eachperson, in that way the us, would be the richest country in the world.
    (just a question)

    They need to fix the economy sometime soon. Just think when we have kids they might be able to get a job when their older... 🙁

    March 10, 2009 at 1:24 pm |
  409. SeanBT

    The food at most schools is so fating and i think that the schools can do better because in most schools kids are getting fater every day and part of it is that the foods they bring or eat is to fating so there should be like state lows that allow what a child can bring to school for lunch time and set the calorie limit for school lunches

    {SeanBT} nostradomis was a philosipher who made thousands of random predictions based on teachings of the myans. ppl have predicted before and got ppl all worked up for nothing at all in the end. so i doubt it.

    I think it is idiotic to have longer school days and years. I also think that it is absurd for people to pay to ride bikes instead of cars.I also think that the man who blinded that one one should deserve a harsh punishment .

    well, it seems like i have nothing to really say, so i will just say that i think cnn student news is the best thing. i watch it every day, even if its not in the classroom. carl is so funny, and the stories r very interesting. i learn a lot. even my teacher says that we are much smarter now that we watch ur show. swaeter vest r awesome so keep wearing them, pancake raced r cool, obama rocks, and i made a promise not to eat any candy for mardi gras, and that didnt happen. im eating a candy bar right now. LOL. anyway, so yeah. i think our world is turning a little on the crazy side. oh well. but CNN student news still rox!!!!! 🙂

    I think that the no cussing club is really improtant in every community. IMy neighbor is very partial to cursing me and another girl at our bus stop, and he is only in the sixth grade. I get very offended when he does and I always think that he is way to young to know these words. Sometimes I will hear kids cursing out their parents or friends, and the words aren't even used in the correct context, which really makes you think about what these kids go through at home. I truly think that cursing should only be used in profound cases, like when someone is badly hurt, but not used to curse people for just being the person that they are.

    I was in New Orleans for Mardi Graw. You would not believe the kinds of stuff they throw off of the floats. I got a light saber. My uncle is abscessed with all the wacky stuff they throw. He really loves the rubber chickens. I wanted a rubber chicken, and one of those painted coconuts that they have at the ZULU parade. But sadly I didn't get either. But still if you have the chance to go to New Orleans for Mardi Graw don't pass that up.

    I think that Geronimo's descendants should get his remains... it would be kind of odd to think about somebody having, say, your grandfather's skull or something!

    What is on my mind?! The Economy, it is a very scary thing! I hope that Obama can get the U.S help in making things better for Americans, people who needs jobs, loans, and help to go to college if they cant afford it out of their own pocket, all these things are so important right now and we need help and I only pray that people wake up and realize what is going on in the world today and it wont get better without other peoples help as well!!

    Hi, i think that the idea of building a wall to protect America from illegal immagrants is ridiculous. There are numerous areas that are unwalled and unprotected. And what is the point of building a wall that can be cut trought and simply walked around!!!!! They need to find something that acualy works.

    I think AIG is stupid for giving the employes a BOUNS when the MONEY was for a BAILOUT. they don't need the money the company does,and I think it's dumb of them to give out BONUSES like that.
