An argument against
Leadership

Since i am a solo practitioner and do not have daily contact with a group of spirited professionals, i do not have an outlet for my questions and comments about today's events. So, after all of these years, i'm back. one recent event was such an affront to me that i needed to ask a question about leadership. Perhaps one of the most studied and analyzed personal ability or trait is leadership. So, i will not make an attempt in this posting to define it. All i want to do is to ask a question. This question is not framed to discuss the merits of any topic other than leadership. The question simply is directed at discussing leadership and the lack thereof. For the purpose of adding framework to the discussion, i suggest that leadership is like visible light. it is not good or bad. it is just either there or it is not. a person, on the other hand, can be a good leader or a poor leader.

President Obama campaigned on the issue of ending the war in Iraq. after it was ended, the President was recorded on video countless times saying two particular statements. the first was, "i promised i would end the war and i did." the second was, "For the first time in over a decade there are no US troops in Iraq." He elicited resounding cheers from the crowds after making these statements.

over the past weekend, President Obama said that he was puzzled by all of the questions about the removal of all troops from Iraq. he went on to say,"it was not my decision to take the troops out of Iraq." he basically then said that he was simply following through on commitments made prior to his entering the office."

Remember my argument has nothing to do with the wisdom of any events in Iraq. I am simply asking if the President is exhibiting leadership of a lack thereof. i chose against because i believe that the President has exhibited no leadership with this statement, and that he is a poor leader.

An argument for
1984

I hated reading it in school, at first. But then I got into it and it was a really good book, and very scary. I forget when he wrote the book, like 1920 something? And he predicted, or told, a story about a lot of things that happen today... which is scary, like I already stated, but overall, a good book. The ending wasn't all that great though, but it didn't leave me hanging for a sequel, so that's good.

Admit it Liberals. Sara Palin is a smart women. You don't like her, and you are just afraid of her.

Sarah Palin is RETARDED and the only reason conservatives like her is because she likes to shoot guns, she is for guns, she shoots animals and is for homeland defense. I'm for all of those things, and I have liberal views. Another reason she is stupid is because she is rallying all these conservatives and giving them the idea that guns are the way to go no matter what. Not reall. So if you don't get your way, you're going to pull out a gun and intimidate people? Yeah, real brave.

An argument for
The Legalization of Marijuana

Notice how noone on this topic has gone against the legalization of mariijuana? That is a good thing, because marijuana is not a dangerous thing. No study has ever shown that someone has died solely by marijuana. Related deaths to marijuana have other drugs mixed in or alcohol. (Which is an intense experience by the way.) Anyways, if marijuana were to be legal, we could tax it, but that's definitely not the issue here. The issue we face is having all these people locked up in jail for having a little bit of a natural plant in their pocket. Wow. If that's the case, would you arrest someone if they started picking dandelions? You can make wine out of dandelions, why aren't they illegal? Plus that's even more dangerous than stumbling upon a marijuana plant and saying "hey I think I'm going to try smoking this and seeing what happens. Or just buying it from somebody. Sure the effects are strong, but usually you get scared of driving or anything that can cause harm to you. Alot of people like to just relax and hang out and laugh and have a good time. Good job, government, you have made something illegal that is harmless. Maybe you should take a look at those dandelions eh? Here is a recipe for dandelion wine. Wow anyone can make it and get drunk? That's pretty stupid if you are letting anybody go through with this. Point is: Legalize weed, and focus on something more important like, say, the economy?

An argument for
Is Atheism a Religion?

@Krista17
I have to disagree on one point, and that is: "Atheists do not try to convert others."

Perhaps you meant to say, "Not all atheists try to convert others," and that would be fair, but it has been my experience that a vast majority of atheists are more vocal and more interested in conversion than your most adamant Baptist preacher. Bill Maher comes to mind as one of the most publicly available Atheistic Preachers, but there are many more in our every-day lives. You've met 'em. You know 'em.

Granted, an atheist conversion does not involve a specific ritual or symbolic cleansing, but those who holler the loudest about their atheism are only trying to gather more to their way of thinking, for whatever reason. Perhaps they believe they are doing good in the name of science or providing a kindness to those with questions - there is no telling when it comes to the motives of an individual - but anybody who criticizes or questions the religious beliefs of another person out loud is proselytizing, whether it be for another religion or for a lack of religion. It's all about getting the most team members on your side, otherwise there is little point in saying anything at all.

"But, no! I'm not proselytizing! I'm telling the truth! The *real* truth!" That's exactly what every religion has said throughout history.

My biggest beef with atheists, of which I am one, is that while almost every organized religion has laws and codes and rules about proselytizing, atheists have no such rules of engagement. Evangelists, by the very nature of their beliefs *must* recruit. Mormons *must* recruit. Scientologists *must* recruit. The bylaws of their clubs make it very clear; their books say so. Atheists have no such organization or codification. Atheists make a personal choice to interfere with the beliefs of those around them by trying to “shatter the illusion.”

Atheists are the least excusable in their effort to proselytize. After all, according to an atheist, we’ll all be space dust in a billion years. So why cause trouble now?

Because there’s nothing good on TV.

13 Guys Named Ed Podcast

I'm afraid the hosts do not have the time to record and post a show on a weekly basis. To build and maintain an audience the show needs to be available on the website at the same time every week or every other week. Not knowing when the show is going to be available makes me less likey to make it part of my routine.

An argument for
Unmedicated Child Birth

Mothers who labor naturally can move freely, go to the bathroom, walk and change positions throughout labor. According to the Cochrane Review, recent studies have shown that getting medication makes changing positions even after birth more difficult.
