Incoming 1Ls / Re: Increasing Typing Skills
« on: March 14, 2008, 09:24:37 AM »
My friend is a 2L in law school and he seems to think that typing speed is extremely influencial on your final grades.  Is that true? Maybe just at a few law schools?

I've been away from the discussion for a while, but I'm really curious to hear your opinions.  Iran has said they want to eliminate Israel, and they have expressed extremely violent opinions about the western world.  Should they be allowed to Develop Tactical Nuclear weapons?  And other than force, how can we stop them if they are determined?

Did Obama have access to the same intelligence that Hillary had?  Was he still against the Iraq war even though he had intelligence that suggested Sadaam was developing nuclear weapons?   
We'll see what he will do if he is elected President.  It can be hard for an Anti-War candidate to make objective decisions about war.  If Iran develops tactical nuclear weapons, and they refuse to dismantle them, I hope he has the guts to make them.

That's pretty good.

It doesn't usually work very well when the government tries to ban things.  The war on drugs isn't really working.

Do you know how much tax revenue the country would lose if we banned smoking?
And how would I cram for finals without fast food?

Well why don't you share with the class how he's planning on reducing health-care costs?
We just need the government to do everything don't we?
Universal health care for people who can't afford health care     
Universal groceries for people who can't afford groceries         
Universal housing for the homeless

FedEx and UPS have restrictions that stop them from mailing letters.  Do you seriously think that the post office is more efficient than FedEx and UPS?  Do you also think that public universities and public schools are better than private?

Obama isn't for those things.  Earlier in the conversation I said that smoking and being overweight probably cause more problems than our health care system.  Obama wants to get the government involved in health care, and I just feel like personal choices such as the foods we eat and the activities we participate will be next.   Obama could reduce health care costs significantly by requiring citizens to lose weight, stop smoking and have regular physicals. So should he?  Are those things bad?  No, they aren't, but it shouldn't be up to the government.

Hope is great, but Freedom is the only thing that will save the country.
Taking away our privileges takes away our creativity and our ambition.  I believe that smoking is wrong, but I respect an adults right to choose.  This country is great because it provides opportunity for those people who are willing to take a chance.  Our economy will get stronger as long as the government allows the citizens to have a fair chance.  Our health care system will get better as young minds create technological solutions that are more affordable.
Obama is a fantastic man, but he thinks the government has a responsibility to take care of everyone.  I believe the government has the responsibility to make sure we have the chance to take care of ourselves and each other.

Obama is supposedly above it all, and I just don't buy it.  He's out there trying to get votes just like everyone else who runs for president.  The president can't really fix health care.  The president wouldn't even be able to make the post office as good as Fed Ex or UPS.  One of the best ways to improve the health care system is to improve the overall health of the citizens.  The health care system would probably improve significantly if we reduced the amount of people who were overweight or addicted to cigarettes. Do you want a president who tries to regulate fast food and make smoking illegal?

I'm a conservative-leaning Independant.  I really want to know why so many people believe that Obama can deliver on his promises.  What if he reads intelligence after he becomes president that convinces him we shouldn't pull out of Iraq?  What will he do?
What if he crunches the numbers and realizes that the government shouldn't be in control of health care?  Will he still keep his promise?  At least Hillary has failed at trying to reform health care.  Obama hasn't ever been involved in a national corporation let alone a national health care system, where does he get off thinking he can lead the charge?
