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.

An argument against
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 against
Inglorius Bastards

It was as though somebody said, "I bet Quentin Tarantino could make the most God-awful movie of the year and still rake in millions of dollars." Which he did; but he hedged his bets by making the whole movie about murdering Nazis.

It was ten scant months between shooting the first scene and the theatrical release, and you can tell.

An argument for
President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize

The person that is chosen for The Nobel Peace Prize is the right person by default. They can't have gotten it wrong because, regardless of who agrees, the prize is awarded based upon the opinion of a committee. And whenever such prizes are awarded, there will be detractors claiming that the opinion is wrong.

I agree with CompliantSoul that this award, like many others, is the product of a bygone era; a system from back in the day when it was okay to issue awards as a prize for being the most compliant and most like what the committee in question considers normal. Perhaps The Nobel Peace Prize is obsolete, and it is well within the right of the obsolete committee to express their obsolete opinions and select their obsolete recipient.

If the prize really was important, we'd all be scrutinizing the winner of The Nobel Prize in Chemistry, too. But we're not. We don't care. Because the question isn't really about how the general public feels about the prize; it's about how they feel about Obama.

Zombieland

Jesse Eisenberg is the most painful-to-watch actor who ever acted. He makes me want to go back to high school to beat him up.

An argument for
Peer to Peer File Sharing

Some researchers have explored the benefits of enabling virtual communities to self-organize and introduce incentives as a resource sharing and cooperation, arguing that what is missing from today's peer-to-peer systems should be seen both as a goal and a means for self-organized virtual communities to be built and fostered. Ongoing research efforts for designing effective incentive mechanisms in P2P systems, based on principles from game theory are beginning to take on a more psychological and information-processing direction.

An argument against
Ambiguous Bathroom Signage

It’s cool that some establishments want to be a little different and have a stylized bathroom sign to match the décor of the rest of the bar/club/restaurant, rather than the generic (and, to a degree, sexist) silhouette placards, but making people solve puzzles when they are inebriated and have to urinate (or worse) is just asking for trouble. The next time I have to compare the two bathroom symbols to figure out which door I should enter, I’m just going to pee in the hallway.
