And it has to contain at least five of the following words: Beachhead: N. a tactical position from which you engage the enemy The tides turned in World War II when the U.S. troops stormed the beachhead in Normandy. Gadfly: N. person who uses criticism or a fly that preys on live stock When my professor said he was a social gadfly I knew I would appreciate his perspective. Gainsay: V. Deny or contradict; to speak against or oppose someone Since Jack told the truth on the witness stand, no one was able to gainsay his statement. Impunity: N. exemption from punishment or loss or escape from fines In exchange for her testimony, the accomplice received impunity from prosecution. Moratorium: N. a temporary prohibition of an activity. An avid fisherman, Billy was upset when he learned of the fishing moratorium. Repudiate: V. to deny the truth or validity of (something) The company will repudiate any claims of negligence. Sovereign: N. a supreme ruler, especially a monarch. Once I turn 18, I will be a sovereign individual and will have control over my own life. Subversion: N. an attempt to transform the established social order and its structures of power, authority, and hierarchy. On Sunday night, the subversive members of the church usually meet to discuss ways to get rid of their minister. Thalidomide: N. a crystalline, slightly water-soluble solid, formerly used as a sedative Marketed as a mild sleeping pill and coined for its reduction of morning sickness, Thalidomide caused birth defects when taken by women who were pregnant. Tribulation: N. grievous trouble; severe trial or suffering. All of those who have not faced trials and tribulations are happy, but those who have are stronger from overcoming them. Zeitgeist: N. the spirit of the time; general trend of thought or feeling characteristic of a particular period of time. The Beatles' Sgt. Peppers album perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the late 1960s. (Haha sorry about the definitions and sentences >.<)

What I'm thinking about doing for the basic topic is looking at a recent protest (preferably a nonviolent one) and comparing it to the medias (typical coverage) of violence within the which is not what is primarily what is happening in the protest. If that makes sense? >.<

if anyone is wondering what I wrote that sucked so bad: there it is: "The gadfly of a protester has lead to him being arrested but later considered impunity by the jury. Upon leaving the police station he later committed a severe crime by injecting his sovereign father with Thalidomide thus sedating him. This lead police to set up a beachhead outside his house at which he exited peacefully. One of our commentators on the subject proclaims that he should be in a Moratorium of the protest due to his unlawful actions" Eat your vegetables, kids.

Okay so here's what I wrote: During the recent Ferguson protests, the media has not chosen to depict its peaceful nature, but rather focus in any violent acts that have taken place. The majority of the protests remained peaceful until police interfered using weapons against the protesters. Peaceful protests are 100% legal and do not disturb the peace. What does disturb the peace, however, is when police use violence to break up protests. Sovereign individuals did not attempt to peacefully deter the subversive citizens. Additionally media chooses to cover only the protesters who were fighting back in self defense. There is an ongoing tribulation with racism in our country. Many people in positions of leadership are currently trying to put a moratorium on peaceful protests into action. I believe this repudiates the truth of the struggle of racism. Those who have been arrested for their peaceful protest in Ferguson should receive an impunity from their sentence. It makes me wonder why people still deny racism. The coverage by the media pegs black people as villains, when they are simply fighting for their civil rights and in a peaceful manner.
