Justin Bieber 1st Amendment Abuse

I don't usually blog about politics, I regard the fact that everyone is entitled to their opinion. However; when I heard, then read in the news, and confirmed on the The White House official site that there is a petition to deport Justin Bieber, I was appalled. This ridiculous petition that launched Thursday January 24 is almost at 100,000 signatures needed by February 22, 2014. What could 'We the People' do if we came together to petition serious matters such as World Peace, higher wages for Teachers and Military personnel, etc.!

The deport jb basically states: "1 We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society." I'm certain many of us have a list of Celebrity U.S. Citizens we wish could be add to this petition also.

Nonetheless; America, there are more important concerns in our Country and in the White House. It would be nice if those people who took the time to sign the above the petition, rather pro or con; could take an equal amount of time to sign any of the many other significantly important petitions. Let us not waste our First Amendment right to petition the government on tabloidization.

Unfortunately; Justin Bieber is only one of many young Celebrities who grew up in the public spotlight only to succumb to substance use and the consequences,  just as other well-known Celebrities have experienced. However; we need to acknowledge everyone involved in this crisis: the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) states, 22.5 million million people 12 years of age and older needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol abuse problem in 2011, 'the most recent year for which NSDUH survey data have been analyzed'.

Rather addiction is due to peer pressure, depression... if you want to free your mind and body from substance abuse, please call:
