Today I gave my John Linder speech in my speech class. It was OK but I have work to be done on my speaking ability. We were assigned to do a special occasion speech featuring a public figure. Most of my classmates are giving satire type speeches on fictional characters featured in the mass media. I told myself last semester that any presentation assignment I receive will feature the fairtax if I can justify the topic. The class seemed interested in the fairtax topic and asked some good questions. The questions were the best part of the speech I enjoyed answering the questions the best. I think I did an admirable job of answering the questions. I used effective visuals a photo of congressman linder a political comic about taxes and I also handed out an example of IRS abuse and harassment.
