How about addressing the question of freedom verses safety. We have seen a lot of our freedoms taken away in the name of safety after the world trade center fell (9/11). You might look at the Patriot Act which was instituted following those events and how this act infringes on our freedoms. (McCain and Obama supported it) To be more specific: 1> The Patriot Act required libraries and bookstores to turn over records of books read/purchased by patrons - very invasive to our privacy 2> The Patriot Act expanded the federal gov's ability to use wiretaps without judicial oversight (without a warrant, which is a violation of 4th amendment) - they can spy on citizens (both Obama and McCain support letting the phone companies off the hook for spying on their customers without permission - this is also a violation of 4th amendment.) 3> The Patriot Act allows nationwide search warrants non-specific to any given location and not subject to any local judicial oversight. This means if the government wants to they can search your things without any probable cause, a very severe breach of person freedoms. 4> The Patriot Act has made it easier for government to monitor private internet use. 5> The Patriot Act authorizes "sneak and peek" of personal property without that persons knowledge. Previously officials would have to notify citizens that they were looking at person information, this act makes that unnecessary. This is just one example of legislation that compromises personal freedoms, but hopefully that gives you some food for thought. The issue of freedom has been second to safety (people have been asked to give up some of their freedoms to become safer from terrorism), but some good questions to ask are: Can one really be totally safe? Can a government really guarantee safety? When a government takes away personal rights in the name of safety, do they really have your safety in mind, or are they interested in control? What does freedom mean to you? Consider these two statements: Freedom is like good health, you don't notice how important it is until it is gone. The less people know about their rights and freedom, the more important they become. This is a very large topic, but look up freedom versus safety online? (beware, the government can now track your search legally under Patriot Act). Good Luck, feel free to email me and let me know if you have opinions or more questions. Just so you know I am a regular girl in my twenties, not an older guy who's into politics. I think this is important for everyone. Your going to do great!

Obama Campaign. Check out the freedom from customs. Go to the news channel and you wil find many current events about people crossing the borders to be able to find a better life. Do something on that....

Do Libya. Kaddaffi is always good for a laugh. He kicked out some Palestinians after complaining to the Arab Summit that nobody cared about them. Also at the Arab Summit he said that if Israel sues Arabs that Israel would win. He confirmed what other Arabs have already admitted that the Arabs concocted the whole Palestinian refugee crisis. They concocted it after Israel won its war against the Arabs as a different strategy to target Israel. Palestinians are actually from the rest of the Muslim countries and Kadaffi still admitted this and kicked some out.

Oil is oil as long as they're hair oil. None is better than the other, they all follow the same FDA regulations. None is better than the other. But if you're buying them online, it's buyer beware. You may not know this but they are not pure oil. The use a small percentage of the oil stuff, but in the lab, they add other ingredients so they don't get spoiled. There's one made by different brands everyday. They are meant to keep hair moisturized, like conditioner. It is a billion dollar business, their main job is to make tons of money, could even discolor your hair. If your hair is damaged & dry, there are reasons why that is and oil/conditioner may not be able to solve your problem 100%. Chemicals, & hair straightening tools are the worst enemy and no amount of hair product can reverse the damaged done by 'abuse'.
