Climate change

RoyLatham

Global Warming (or climate change in the hot way) is the thing. It is a win or lose election debate topic. It is also very contested in the public field (media). The IPCC states that it exists and that it is human induced. State intervention is often motivated by climate change concerns. However there are many scientists, people and companies that contest climate change or human induced climate change. They have interesting arguments. I believe that they are mistaken. I define human global wa...

It's time to crackdown on Lesbian impostors

brian_eggleston

In preparation for this debate I conducted a thorough study of the "Lesbian Scene" in London and as a result of my tireless research have uncovered the shocking truth that few, if any, of the many Lesbian bars and clubs in the capital actually sell Lesbian food or drinks - or even employ staff from the Greek island of Lesbos. Indeed, so anxious were the management of these bogus "Lesbian" establishments to cover up their scams, many of them refused me entrance when I asked if I could go in an...

Nationalizing health care in the U.S. would increase its cost

RoyLatham

Nationalizing health care" includes any universal system by which the Federal government provides and sets payment for health care. This includes systems that both employee health workers directly or regulate the delivery of health care to the extent that costs are not determined primarily by market forces. Costs may always be reduced by limiting the amount of health care that is provided, and every nationalized health system established elsewhere uses some form of rationing to minimize costs. F...

Pc is better than Mac

weather

I'm standing at pro Pc and my opponent will be pro Mac or con pc, whatever you want to say. A fully loaded Imac will put you out around $3,000. But a fully loaded Hp TouchSmart IQ800t series with Blue ray, and blue tooth, a wireless keyboard and mouse, for $1,700. even a watered down Mac costs $2,000. Pc also has a vast compatibility with gaming and random stuff for hacking, moding and all the good stuff like that. the debate itself is about all of Mac and PC including price, sorry for...

Freedom of speech on TV should be restricted

brian_eggleston

Last week, Carol Thatcher was sacked from her job as a presenter of a BBC lightweight current affairs television programme after making a racially insensitive remark which included the word "golliwog"* http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1138771/Death-threats-Carol-Thatcher-golliwog-gaffe-goes-hiding-Switzerland-says-agent.html The news of this caused much wailing and gnashing of teeth amongst conservatives who claimed the move to fire the daughter of former Prime Minister Margaret Tha...

Only affaires de coeur should be considered adulterous

brian_eggleston

We all know men and women are built differently, both physically and emotionally. One of the emotional differences is our respective attitude to sexual relations. Usually, sex will be a physical expression of the love a couple feel for each other. However, sex can sometimes be based solely on physical attraction, with no emotional attachment between the sexual partners whatsoever. This decoupling of physical desire from emotional attachment that we sometimes call "lust" is more commonly as...

resoved: global warming is false

guitargod

The US spends 4 billion dollars on global warming research each year, what scientist would disagree wiht that kind of money on the table. The theory of man-made global warming is false. Rather than just giving evidence proving that global warming is based on misrepresented evidence I will directly address the points made by global warming scientists. If you do not plan on reading my post (I know it is long) I would ask you to watch this video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=... this...

Resolved: That, on balance, social networking Web sites have a positive impact on the United States.

brian_eggleston

Unless my opponent has any objections, the parameters for this debate will be as follows: 1. "Social networking websites" are defined as web-based services that allow individuals to (1) construct a public or semi-public profile within a bounded system, (2) articulate a list of other users with whom they share a connection, and (3) view and traverse their list of connections and those made by others within the system. 2. "The United States" will not be contrained merely to a body of governmen...
