Andromeda, I'm hoping to set the opening now and have my first round up by friday so that you can get yours over the weekend. Please let me know in the comments if there is anything about the way I set the debate up that you would like to change. I look forward to debating you for a second time and wish you luck in the tournament!
Round 1: Accepta...
Resolution: A woman has the right to choose whether to abort a child.
I will be arguing for women's choice. Con will be arguing against women's choice (pro life.)
Round 1: Acceptance, definitions
Okay, this is my first debate, so I'll be pretty new to its rules, but be understanding please ! So, does violent games or media impose a threat to the children (or yet all its players) in a mean of them having negative influences from them? In my opinion, yes. These little things that anyone comes in contact with, can and probably will influence the person with or without their conscious awareness of being affected. This may not be the only factor that drives some people to real danger...
Shakespeare may have written some quite good plays, but few would disagree that most of them are far too long and boring.
That’s why they should be edited and spiced up a bit at the same time. Here is an example of what I have in mind:

This song from Nirvana is called "Smells like Teen Spirit". Before it was released, alternative rock was largely confined to underground clubs but this one helped Nirvana break into the mainstream and is considered revolutionary.
This is for rap songs that have a bit of deeper meaning than the typical ho's, money, drugs. Best songs win!
I'll kick it off with the classic "Get By" by Talib Kweli
heres a snipet of the lyrics:
We sell, crack to our own out the back of our homes
We smell the musk at the dusk in the crack of the dawn
We go through "Episodes II," like "Attack of the Clones"
Round 1: Acceptance, definitions, opening statement, clarifications
Round 2: Arguments, rebuttals
Round 3: Rebuttals, closing statements
Emotion: a conscious mental reaction (as anger or fear) subjectively experienced as strong feeling usually directed toward a specific object and typically accompanied by ph...
In this debate, I wish to prove that books are superior to e-books. There are a number of reasons for this. I can touch, feel, and smell a book; which are all part of the unique experience. I can make notes in a book. I can loan a book to a friend. I can read them where there is no internet. Physical books have had a larger impact on our world than e-books. Physical books offer a wider variety. I will expand on these issues and more in the...
