Blog Prompt 5: Gubernatorial Debate

Debate transcript – O’Malley-Ehrlich
Claim: It’s a consequential race, obviously, because when you elect an executive, executives count. Executives’ impact lives. They impact business cycles; they impact the ability to create jobs in a particular state. They impact taxpayers. They impact our vision and our future.
Data: the reason we have so much interest in this debate, that’s why there are all the signs and bumper stickers running around, that’s why all the TV commercials are running as well.
Warrants: the fact of it is, a lot of these commercials that you’re seeing attempt to litigate the past, they attempt to litigate things about me.
Backing: This is not a personality contest, folks. It’s not Martin O’Malley, Bob Ehrlich. It’s about you. It’s not about in fact whatever 30-second attack ad happens to say this particular night, and you can see them on your airways as well. It’s about us, our future, taxpayers, it’s about business creation, it’s about you, you count, and you get to vote.
Qualifiers: obviously, for four years. I’ve loved my time in public service, in the state legislature, in the Congress of the United States, representing you as your governor. Obviously, thought I was retired, we’re back.
Rebuttals: In any event folks, we thank you, very much for watching tonight. We thank you for your interest, we thank you for your enthusiasm, we thank you for the fact that you care about this consequential race.

Blog Prompt 2: Stew’s on

My first reaction feel the singer is funny and he sing so bad the other way his action is better than his singing when I watched Stew’s performance. I am not sure what’s argument is about The Negro Problem and the TED. On the internet some person replied for this video about the TED is stand for Technology. but in his song I feel little the Negro Problem, this problem let me relation to “The letter from Birmingham Jail” talk about the religious civil right movement.   yeah, some of comments posted about it reflect different reaction, I am not agree someone commented “the TED is stand for Technology”.  I search the TED meaning on the internet, the TED is idea worth spreading. I think the Stew’s performance maybe to show some idea, and he use to sing song to  spreading to anyone to know what he wants. when I leave Stew’s comment in response to his performance, I feel he use some funny action and not good singing. and he tells everyone the black people need to respect in his life in his song in his action.

Statement by Alabama Clergymen

Statement by Alabama Clergymen

This statement is come from the “letter from Birmingham Jail.” This Statement was talking about the racial problem in Alabama. And Martin Luther King expressed understanding the honest convictions in racial matter could properly be pursued in the court. The responsible citizens have undertaken to work on various problem which cause racial friction and unrest. In Birmingham have approach to racial problems. To face the problem, they are argument the church religious and violence. He clergymen were communities to withdraw to demonstrations. In the statement they are agree rather with certain local Negro leadership which had called for honest and open negotiation of racial issues in their area. To write statement’s purpose is that the person will be equal and not have any violence.  I find it convincing that they further strongly urgr their own Negro community to withdraw support from these demonstrations, and to unite locally in working peacefully for a better Birmingham. If I was a citizen if Birmingham during this time, I could have everyone who were nonviolence and people to equally. Because, there were no racial problem, no violence, the world become peacefully. And people will be nice to each other.
