|About Me:||Usage - Me is used in many constructions where strict grammarians prescribe I. This usage is not so much ungrammatical as indicative of the shrinking range of the nominative form: me began to replace I sometime around the 16th century largely because of the pressure of word order. I is now chiefly used as the subject of an immediately following verb. Me occurs in every other position: absolutely <who, me?>, emphatically <me too>, and after prepositions, conjunctions, and verbs, including be <come with me> <you're as big as me> <it's me>. Almost all usage books recognize the legitimacy of me in these positions, especially in speech; some recommend I in formal and especially written contexts after be and after as and than when the first term of the comparison is the subject of a verb.|

I'd like to thank my opponent, Sportsguru, for providing such fit meat for debate, and Kleptin for organizing a tournament with such a unique premise. This is a RD 1 debate for Kleptin's tournament, and I will be assuming the role of Sportsguru from the following debate: http://www.debate.org/debate/5111. Feel free to peruse it prior to reading this one. Sportsguru will, in effect, be opposing himself (or at least arguments inspired by his own). Hence, if you see chunks of text directly quote...
I stand to negate the following "Resolved: That, by 2040, the federal government should mandate that all new passenger vehicles and light trucks sold in the United States be powered by alternative fuels." The first round doesn't count and is only for rules. The Rules: 1. Public Forum type debate, therefore no CP, Kritics, etc 2. Provide evidence for claims and explain things that are not simple concepts 3. Please accept with the PF rules in mind, a violation = losing. Thanks and...
When you think of America you think of things like the Statue of Liberty or the sunn beaches of Miami or LA. When it comes to symbols of america though, it is hard to beat the iconinc penny. it is the commenest coin in America and is therefore easy to recognize when you see a penny in the newsparer or ont the internet that it means haing to do with currency. We cannot simply get rid off the penny. That is like blowing up the Lincon Monument or toppling the Washington Monumet. It just simply isn'...
Previously, my opponent and I came to an agreement that pro shall give the opening argument. **Your opening argument must be at least 100 characters in length.**...
Round 3: FIGHT! The definition I have for this debate are as follows: Justice: Giving an individual his or her fair due (Black's Law) Observation 1: The title is not the actual topic The title spot did not allow for the whole topic to fit. The topic that we will debate is "Limiting economic inequality should be a more important social goal than maximizing economic freedom" Observation 2: What is best for the society should be the more important goal.
