Reagan’s rhetorical style was fundamental in defining him as a president. In fact, many believe that his speech at the Brandenburg Gate was directly responsible for the collapse of communism. To determine if this is so, it is essential to critically examine his rhetorical strategies and understand who Regan was as a person. Ronald Regan was born in Tampico, Illinois, on February 6, 1911 to Nelle and Jack Regan, a low-income Roman Catholic family. Yet despite his family’s lack of prominence, he went on to do quite a bit in his early life; Regan graduate from Eureka College in 1932, worked as a sports announcer on several regional radio stations, and eventually moved to Los Angeles, California in 1937 to become a professional actor.

Diego Rivera is often depicted in films as a jolly, plump man, but that is far from the truth. Rivera was a master of his own art because he experienced life that most people would write stories about. His ideologies were ones that could cause someone to fall in love with him or be disgusted, but he was a man of many different truths. Often when I think of Diego Rivera, I remember in the 11th grade how my AP US History teacher told a snippet of how one of Diego Rivera's Murals were literally whitewashed over because it gave reference to communism, and the US had created Communism to be bitter for many people. Because of that I began to read about Communism and began to questions its importance, validity, and whether it was good or bad.
For example, Reverend Hale, after questioning John Proctor about why his last born son isn't baptized, he gets,"I see no light of God in the man"(1242) as a comment. Hale response seriously with, "The man's ordained, therefore, the light of God is in him." (1242) Hale was new, so he didn't understand that the preacher John was talking about, Parrish, was a greedy,prideful, and selfish man, though the audience and John knew.Outward appearances in people may be extremely contrasted to the inward truth of the person...someone could be smiling and laughing, but inward could be miserable. The abundant examples of irony in Arthur Miller's play The Crucible hints that appearances can often be deceiving from reality. Verbal irony has created confusion and suspicion because people say things, when they mean an entirely different definition.
In the beginning of this movie I thought Tim Thomas aka Ben was Stage One: The Liar. He seemed closed off and unable to distinguish fantasy from reality, by stealing his brothers Federal ID badge and by lying to all those people about who he was. Then later in the movie we find out he is really a Stage Five: The Servant. He was just making sure the people he chose to donate his body and estate to, were who they seem to be. The real Ben Thomas who is the younger brother of Tim Thomas was Stage Two: The Conformist in the beginning.

By doing something wrong and making up for it on is substituting the bad with good. The next word, Gaal: “ is the term for the person who performed the duties of "redeemer." This term is found eighteen times in the Old Testament (13 times in Isaiah) showing the magnitude that redemption has in religion. It was the duty of a man's redeemer, usually his next of kin, to even back the freedom that he had lost.” This word is used to describe archetypal characteristics in stories, and the job of man. Stories like Moses and Sampson where they have failed, but gone back to buy back their freedom or retrieve it.
` Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was a revolutionary artist that is known for his symbolic, dream-like artwork. Dali has artwork, like The Basket of Bread (1945) that doesn’t scream surrealism but is just as symbolic as his other works of art. In 1945 Dali, a 41 year old living in the United States during World War 2, had already been kicked out of the Surrealists and had published his autobiography The Secret Life of Salvador Dali in 1942. His expulsion from the Surrealist movement by Breton came after he displayed sexual fetishes in his art, he showed support to Franco and after Dali’s art piece The Enigma of Hitler 1939 (Editors, 2017). After moving to the United States, his art still possessed surrealist elements but Dali also experimented with more classic values, traditional techniques, science, and the catholic religion resulting in his Nuclear Period (Leal, 2017).
Today, he is reaching international notoriety as the host of satirical news program The Daily Show. Noah’s uniqueness derives from his foreign upbringing during the apartheid from a white father and black mother, which together creates a comedian who approaches issues with an insightful yet often silly take. In his monologue entitled, “Surfing Aids”, Noah is recounts an interaction he had with a young woman that boasts all the elements of Noah’s specific type of informal lighthearted humor. Noah, a self-designated “outsider” to America, gains the acceptance of the audience through his wry mockery of offensive American culture in order to clear up ethnic misconceptions about foreigners from a perspective that is neither accusatory nor blaming but refuses to be silenced. The set up into the story sets the tone for the monologue that follows.

Contrary to the stereotypes of old, Limbaugh made a name for himself with humor, or his tendency to delve into rants flavored with jokes. This unexpectedly struck a cord with a large target audience who still all follow Limbaugh religiously to this day (Streitmatter 225). A final new way to digest news relates to comedy far more than Limbaugh. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart would stress repeatedly that it was not a news program, it was a comedy show. However, a news show it would become in the eyes of many
In a similar vein, consider that the ABC network recently greenlit a sitcom for 2015 called Fresh Off the Boat, based on the irreverent memoir of celebrity restaurateur, chef, and television personality Eddie Huang. As Huang was aware when he wrote his book, “fresh off the boat” or “FOB” has long been used by native-born Americans to insult new immigrants who seem crudely unassimilated. But among some Asian Americans, it’s also used sarcastically, even playfully. So Huang now reclaims “FOB” to make light of the way it has been used. That nuance may be lost on some who will watch the sitcom.
