Obama is rockin' the Reggaeton and other thoughts on candidates

Yes folks, in case you haven't heard, Barack has his own Reggaeton song and you can listen to it at Amigos de Obama, but you do have to register first.

By the way, not that it is at all relevant to his bid for president, but did you know that Barack Obama has a lovely singing voice? While listening to the NPR Day to Day podcast, I heard him trying to sing in Spanish and while his Spanish was pretty pitiful, I was impressed by his ability to project and carry a tune.

Another bit of intereting candidate information regards Ron Paul and this does have to do with his candidacy. Last week I was again listening to the NPR Day to Day podcast and heard an interview with James Kirchick, in which he discussed his most recent article, Angry White Man , in the New Republican. In both his article and the interview, Kirchick discussed the newsletters that Ron Paul distributed monthly starting in 1978. "What they[the articles in the newsletter] reveal are decades worth of obsession with conspiracies, sympathy for the right-wing militia movement, and deeply held bigotry against blacks, Jews, and gays."(Kirchick, 2008, Angry White Man). Paul denies that he wrote offensive articles, stating that he didn't actually approve everything that went into the publication. But really, who puts their name on a publication and then doesn't give a hoot what kind of bigotry goes into it? Not really the level of responsibility that most people are looking for in a president. Since publication of the article, Ron Paul has "disavowed moral responsibility" for the newsletters published under his name. That's just ridiculous if you ask me.

So, that's the end of my random thoughts on presidential candidates. Back to work.

The concept for managing time daily follows the idea that you need to
start your day by planning through the use of the spreadsheet.
When we read, we tend to say the words "out loud" in our
heads. The methods of teaching and their homework assignments are not easy for young students to follow.

I've been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all
web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

First offf I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your
mind prior to writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my thoughts inn getting my ideas
out. I do enjoy writing butt it just seems like the first 10 to 15
minutes are generally wasted simply just trying too figur out how to
begin. Any suggestions orr hints? Appreciate it!
