English 9: your first task!!!

You've all read the story MISTER BLINK (p. 44 in Resource Lines). On your own blog, tell us what you think (your critical response). Try to get at least one other person in the class to comment on what you write. Then, respond to the statement below (by clicking on comments) and also let us know the name of your blog (e.g. thielmann.blogspot.com) so we can read what you write, or email me your blog address at gthielmann@sd57.bc.ca

Reminder -- to log in and work on your blog, click the blogger sign at the top left of any blog or go to blogger.com. Once you're signed in, use the tabs (posting, setteings, template...) to change your blog. Use the 'dashboard" to see all your blogs. Please use appropriate langauge in your "blogging." If you want to be gross, use a different blog that you don't share with your English class! Any blogs and comments posted by Wed., Oct. 13th will be considered for marks. Remember, sign your blogs with a name (like Marcy B) or title your blog with your name (like Marcy's English) so I can give you marks, but don't use your last name (to help protect your privacy).

Here's the statement related to the story we read in class: Agree or disagree (and say why): The "Mister Blinks" of the world (politicians who are "invented" by others) are more dangerous than the ones who grab power for themselves.

yo mr. T im kyle c and my blog is at http://mastachief.blogspot.com

To answer the questions:

1.) I kinda think it depends... the people can lie, tell the truth and just not know what to do. I dont like polotics because they never agree on things and they are greedy, power hungry monkies

go big or go home said...

well... I thought that the Mister Blink story was not a very good one. It did not like the fact that it never explained why he was running.

The answer to your question:

I agree. I think that if they want they can change the way things are done for there own sake. But one who knows there running tells everybody what they will do.

Hey Mr. Thielmann,

It's Kelsey Hatcher. For your question my answer would be... That the people who are given power to themselves are more "dangerous." I think this because they are just put into the situation of power, they don't know what to do or what to us their power on they can make a big difference in our politics. Since they do not know how to grab power for themselves they are most likely to do things for the worst. We should elect people who know how to grab power for themselves, but still have a strong support group of people behind them that can help them.

Hey hey hey, its Brady, to answer the question, I think a candidate that has gained all the power on their own, would be much more in control if he/she was elected. A person who has gained power by other people speaking for him/her could turn out to tbe the worst "person in power" a country, province/state etc.. could ever have received, because the people didnt know what they were getting themselves into. All they were going on is how other people built him/her up to sound so fantastic.

hello mr.thielmann

it's frankie skerlak/ the answere to your question......
i think people who get power given to them because the people who vote hime in, he didnt even have to say anything.He could be more powerful cause he can do alot of damage threw a period of time they could also go money hugry and make the town bankrupt.

In the other hand people who can gain power for themselves can be dangerous because they could, just be in it all just for the money, they might not even want to make the city better.they could also just think for themselves an no one else.

So both ways can be bad but i guess you should just got for your first instinct and maybe thnk before you go!!!

YakALot said...

Mr. T it's Cody M. to answer your question I think that political icons who are trying to grab power for themselves are more dangerous than comunity elected candidates. I feel this way because power hungry people tend to lie more often than comunity candidates and even though I do not pay attention to politics I would like a candidate who knows what is going on in the country.

andrews blog said...

howdy ho mr thielmann its andrew going to answer your question about the politishens. I think that it would be more dangerous to have a guy who was created by other people becausse he dosn't need all the other people telling people that he is goign to do every thing.But if the guy created himself he will need to prove everything to people insted of having people already prove to him...

jim's english said...

Well it depends
politicians who are inventesd by people say things during their campain like that they will make a better health care system but when their elected they dont fofill one of their promises but in the other hand politicians that grab power for them selfs can do the same thing so I gess that both sinarieos are dangerous.

ABz said...

Hey...what's up, Abby here...

I thought this story was interesting. Whether it was a metaphor or not, this story will make a person think. ;)
The thing i don't like about short stories though..is that detail was missing with the character and setting. But ne way..my answers to the questions r on my blog (http://good-old-eng-9.blogspot.com/)

Oh! and....
I agree to the statement, If a politician is invented by someone else, they won't think 4 them-selves...wich is more dangerous then someone who's smart enough to sieze power ;)..in my mind ne way

Mr. T i agree with your statement i think it is well done!

WILLIE said...

hey mr t....its raymond and about that question thing, i think that the mr blinks r more dangerous because no one really knows what they are and what they will do.

anthony said...

i disagree with the statement becuse people that want to grab the power they are more powerful because they know what to do with there power and in politics having power means alot but it is diffrent kinds of power, the power that they have can change people vote or impression on them.

bubbles said...

hey there Mr.T

I agree to the statement, If a politician is invented by someone else, they won't think 4 them-selves...wich is more dangerous then someone who's smart enough to size there power ..in my mind NO way

hey mr.t its matt, I agree with statement because people who grab for power know what they're doing and people who don't grab for power don't know what they're doing.

Critical response to Mr.blink

I think the narrator is telling the story in 3rd person point of view. Their attitud toward the characters and events in the story were detached because it does not make any judgement toward Mr.Blink or anyone else in the story. It just describes the story. I think the major complication in the story is that Mr.Blink dose not know that he is running for prime minister. I don't think these events are not logical because you would know if you were running for prime minister. I think the coonflict was resolved when he realized that he was actually running for prime minister, and that he has supporters. The story ends when he wins the election and he is now prime minister.

Hey Mr.Thielmann I made a mistake when I was creating my blog I had only put one k in tikka so my blog is tikasblogat.blogspot.com

K-Ham15 said...

I didn't like this story at all..It was ver confusing and you never found out who was actually telling the story or why he was elected canditate. I never really got to know the main character and just overall this wasen't a well put together story. If you think otherwise say so
