Who wants to help me do my homework? Sweet! So here's the assignment: I need to write and deliver a ten minute persuasive speech on a topic of my choosing. Anything pertinent. My original topic was free trade, but I felt that owuld be too dry a topic. I also want to avoid anything to do with Iraq, terrorism, etc. or anything directly related to politics (issues being debated by politicians are fine, but nothing to do with the recent elections, or Don Rumsfeld, etc.) Just anything controversial and contemporary. I have no time to come up with one because I procrastinated on something else that's due tomorrow, but I figured arguing is what we do best here, so someone's gotta have an idea! It can be value-based (ie why George Bush sucks), policy-based (why our illegal immigration system needs to be fixed and how to fix it), or fact-based (we need to stop letting old people (especially FREET) drive or we'll be doomed to eternal lateness!) etc.
