certain jobs require certain people, do you agree? (what about the disabled?)

LisandraP

Hiring practices should not be left to the discretion of the businesses, if they do not want to hire woman who might have children, or people with disabilities, that is not their right. It is not fair whether a company decides whether or not a person is allowed to perform a certain job, it is not fair to think that a certain job requires a certain person to fill it in. It is still discrimination if we look at figures such as sexual orientation, culture, mentally disabled, religion, sex, ethnicit...

The death penalty should be legalized

republicofdhar

Well, here it is. First round is acceptance. I haven't specified any jurisdiction, so please don't bring in the U.S. Constitution or laws specific to any one country.

Gay Marriage

Varrack

HI GUYS! I think gay marriage should be illegal, because that's not what marriage is! Clearly it is between 1 man and 1 woman. That's how it's been for thousands of years. We ought to keep it illegal for the good of society! How could anyone disagree? Do people use logic nowadays or what? Sorry folks, but marriage is and always has been between straight couples. It's funny how people want to change it as if you could change a definition! LOL! xD...

Kids learn just as much at a public school then a private school.

ProConIK

Its up to the kid how much they want to...
