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?

Iran should be prohibited from developing uranium enrichment technology.

I assume you mean "By whom." Be that as it may, sovereignty has been the key arguing point against the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty both before and since its signing in 1968. If this is the basis of your dialectic then. we must take it to its limit. If all states and peoples are sovereign, then when it comes to nuclear weaponry, those in favor of sovereignty must also stand behind the premise that anyone with enough money should be able to buy nuclear weapons. Does that make any sense at all. The world community of 189 nations has spoken, and wisely so. Nuclear weaponry and its technology must be controlled. Hear, hear.

An argument for
Søren Kierkegaard

I give him props for his ethical arguments and for taking seriously the big questions that led to the Existentialist movement. My only qualm is that he too often resorted to the cop-out of "God" as being the answer to those questions. Sartre probably said that better at some point.

An argument for
Offshore Drilling for oil and natural gas

Even if it did not change prices, the money spent would be domestic and the billions of dollars spent would have an internal ripple effect on jobs and GDP. Also we would not be giving money to countries that do not have our interest at heart.

An argument against
Cochlear implants

I have heard that the deaf community frowns upon these implants. They state they re a community with a language and rich culture.

An argument against
Sarah Palin

This point is not directed solely at Sarah Palin. Instead, it is directed at what she is emblematic of. A long time ago our country stopped searching for the "best and brightest." Now, our voters seem to crave political leaders "who they can have a beer with" or who they think are like them. I, for one, want elected leaders to be really smart, thoughtful, pragmatic, a supporter of science, and not a "NASCAR dad", "soccer mom", or "hot moose hunting governor."

One commentator who has posted regarding this topic has complained that Sarah Palin is the victim of the leftist media conspiracy to destroy a strong conservative woman. However, without the soundbite and image driven media, Sarah Palin would not even be known. The utter lack of meaningful content in what we call "news" in the era of the internet is the exact genesis of politicians of Palin's ilk. The modern form of what passes for "journalism" is the reason why Abraham Lincoln would be nothing more than a fine lawyer today. The public's acceptance of flash over substance would doom any opportunity for Lincoln to lead our country. I find Palin and her supporter's criticisms of the media to be hollow; especially in light of the fact that it is the paparazzi form of news coverage that gave political birth to the "hot moose hunting governor." Americans should demand more for itself and stop settling.
