Commentary and other thoughts:
… on the word “oil” which was mentioned 12 times in the speech. Our only response to you is can we please perhaps include the words “United States” and “offshore drilling” somewhere within your next speech? Sure we are completely dependant on foreign oil, but that’s only our fault. We have plenty of oil here in the US.
… on the word “america” which was mentioned 12 times in the speech. As we analyze your speech, it is indeed true “America” is completely dependent on oil.
… on the word “vehicles” which was mentioned 06 times in the speech. Part of our oil dependency deals directly with the three of the top 5 words [vehicles, energy, fleet]. Without even needing to read this transcript, watch the video or listen to the audio – we can conclude only with the following. UPS as a company is not efficient by any means when it comes to carbon emissions and fuel consumption (although carbon was not mentioned at all). I disagree with using UPS as a foundation for your speech. Frankly its annoying.

One of the more interesting facts about word frequency is you can understand the entire text by only needing to read the top 5 words based on how frequently they are noted.

Commentary and other thoughts:
… on the word “Libyan” which was mentioned 8 times in the speech. One would only hope this word would mentioned several times. Hence the title of the speech.
… on the word “people” which was mentioned 8 times in the speech. People are ultimately involved with this conflict. It is with our hopes, any injury to innocent citizens is kept to a minimal.
… on the word “Qadaffi” which was mentioned 10 times in the speech. In my humble opinion, its time for him to go at the hands of the allied forces.
… on the word “forces” which was mentioned 07 times in the speech. Interesting fact, the word “Libya” and “Forces” were both mentioned 7 times in the speech.
… on the word “united” which was mentioned 06 times in the speech. Hopefully this word stays true, and any effort is on a united front. Not necessarily fronted by the US armed forces. The word “states” was only mentioned 4 times.
