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
Trader Joe's

Trader Joe’s is awesome for a number of reasons. 1) For a “specialty supermarket” it really isn’t that much more expensive then other national chain markets; and a good number of items are actually a lot less expensive at Trader Joe’s. 2) The foods carried by Trader Joe's are, generally speaking, very tasty. 3) The people working at Trader Joe's are absurdly friendly and helpful, probably because they are paid above-union wages. 4) Peppermint Jo-Joe’s.

An argument for
Intelligent design

Otm_shank
Thank you for finally making an argument, and you have made some good points. The facts are that I cannot prove that there is an intelligent designer, nor can you prove there is not. The burden is on neither one of us for the purpose of this discussion. What I am attempting to do is to put forth some ideas such that an open minded person might get some information from a source other than Wikipedia. In my profession as a chemical engineer and in my many discussions of this subject I have found that most people don’t know squat about chemistry or physics, let along quantum physics, general relativity or string theory. Furthermore, it is easy for most to dismiss ID because in their minds, what’s the big deal about the universe. Who among your associates have pondered the suspension of the forces of nature during the inflationary period after the Big Bang? Who has any appreciation that ice floating is a total anomaly in nature, and that life probably would not exist if this were not the case. Who appreciates the billions of years that single celled creatures were able to manufacturing limestone so that we could build buildings and roads? Who has even thought of the cycle of coordinated events that it took to put the billions of gallons of oil below ground? These are not small things that can be dismissed with the standard rhetoric that , “My imagination is too limited to think of alternatives.” I know the periodic table well, and there are not any alternatives, to limestone, carbon, water, et cetera. I am not proposing that we have a scientific discussion. I am suggesting that at some point after tossing a coin over and over again and it comes up heads every time, an intelligent and open minded person begins to think, “Maybe there is another force involved here.”

An argument for
Richard "Dick" Cheney

From what I know of the man, he is not afraid to say precisely what he believes and has yet to be caught in a waffle, a flip-flop or a gaffe (unless you count the hunting incident and the DC Madam, but those weren't really political maneuvers). His words are concrete and there is no doubt as to where he stands. Whether or not you agree with the things he says, there is something to admire in an old politician who doesn't dance around trying to look good.

An argument for
A Christmas Story

Fun to the point of wickedness. A great recollection of American childhood experiences. Great acting, great writing, memorable imagery and dialogue. An overall thumbs-up for almost anyone -- including people who don't celebrate Christmas (either by circumstance or by choice). Enjoyable and not at all the treacle-filled Capra title.

An argument against
Intelligent design

The idea of Intelligent Design was developed by a group of American creationists who reformulated their argument in the creation–evolution controversy to circumvent court rulings that prohibit the teaching of creationism as science. Intelligent Design's leading proponents – all of whom are associated with the Discovery Institute, a politically conservative think tank – believe the designer to be the God of Christianity. Thinly veiled evangelism delivered in an underhanded attempt to trick free-thinking individuals into swallowing a religion that they've already rejected.
