Free Hat!

bearsfan

Hat McCullough is a convicted murderer of twenty-three toddlers and babies. He admits to doing so in self defense. My opponent has to prove, using our justice system, that Hat should be freed. You can't say that it is good because it reduces the population or other arguments like it because it doesn't get him out of jail. Don't free Hat. By the way, this happens to be from an episode of South Park so please don't go looking for a real toddler murderer with a large following because you won't...

My opponent can't answer this question before the next round

sadolite

Here is Congress's health care bill in it's entirety: http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=111_cong_bills&docid=f:h3200ih.pdf My challenge is that my opponent will not be able to answer a simple question I have about this bill before the 72 hour time limit expires. I will allow my opponent to look else where if they so desire. The Question: If a "Public Option" is made available, can I continue to keep private health insurance if I am laid off, quit or get fired. In...

There is no better alternative for society than debt free currency

Cebes

For the sake of this debate, the issue here is that debt free currency, created by fiat, produces no national debt, allowing a society maximum flexibility in organizing its resources for the benefit of the majority. There are two, basic monetary systems which nations might adopt. The first, is a system where money - legal tender is created by a public authority, and allocated for the public good without an interest charge. [debt free currency] The second, a private entity obtains the autho...

The health care reform currently in congress should be passed

Neferiel

Thank you to whoever accepts this, and I hope for a good debate. Here's my constructive: "We spend much more on health care than any other nation, but aren't healthier for it. That is why I've said that even as we rescue this economy from a full-blown crisis, we must rebuild it stronger than before. And health insurance reform is central to that effort." -President Barack Obama Because I agree with President Obama, I affirm the resolution, "The United States should adopt the proposed healt...

The Word "Omnipotent" Can Be Shown To Be Oxymoronic

JustCallMeTarzan

The proposition on offer is that the word omnipotent can be shown to be oxymoronic. Relevant definitions: Omnipotent: Having unlimited or universal power, authority, or force; all-powerful. [1] Oxymoron: A rhetorical figure in which incongruous or contradictory terms are combined, as in a deafening silence and a mournful optimist.

Ignorant mortals probably wrote the Bible.

Freeman

The year is 2009. Nearly 2 billion people on our planet have organized their lives around the claim that the Bible is so profound that it is acceptable to arrange one's life around it to the exclusion of other books. Am I the only one that sees a problem with this? Given the breadth and profusion of human knowledge over the past few hundred years this almost seems to be miraculous in itself. It is certainly true to say that the authors of the Bible could write extraordinarily well, however this...

The Japanese Whalers are immoral and deserve the Sea Shepherds' actions.

LDdebaterCG

I stand in the strictest Proposition of this resolution. I would like to define the following terms. Sea Shepherds an organization led by Paul Watson to stop the whaling in Antarctica. Immoral the action or quality of being unjust. Actions: actions taking place at the current time. Now My value for this round will be Harmonious Nature. Harmonious nature is the paramount value because without it our world where we are all ocnnected ceases to exist and we all die. The Affirmation is the only si...
