http://jimspoliticalthoughts.blogspot.com/2008/02/north-carolina-school-for-deaf.html This Sunday, as students arrived at the North Carolina School for the Deaf, instead of allowing them to go to the dining hall for dinner, as was required, students were detained to the campus chapel, held for 3-3 1/2 hours (for 2 hours with no food). The entire time, the Dorm Representatives, all of whom were Deaf, were not allowed into the chapel building, and there was not a single Deaf person to communica...

Bill O'Reilly is neither fair nor balanced.

I started this debate with another member and he never posted an argument. I am a conservative, yet I am fair minded and believe that Bill O'Reilly is a hippocrite when he attacks other networks for being biased. He is neither fair nor balanced....

The reason why I refuse to take existentialism as just another French fashion or historical curiosity is that I think it has something very important to offer us for the new century. I'm afraid we're losing the real virtues of living life passionately, sense of taking responsibility for who you are, the ability to make something of yourself and feeling good about life. Existentialism is often discussed as if it's a philosophy of despair. But I think the truth is just the opposite. Sartre once in...

I believe you should vote for a person because of his words not because of his race or gender. This is a form of sexism and racism and I am greatly offended because of that....

Yet, in the united states, most students can only speak one language. english. other languages are important, they help people communicate with the...

The FairTax

The_Silent_Consensus
beem0r

Note: if you accept this debate, you are arguing for the FairTax itself, not the general principle of a consumption tax I'm going to sum up my points of why I don't support the FairTax: 1. It is regressive. That's Econ 101 2. Their math is fuzzy. Not only do they make the mistake in counting the prebate as negative taxation instead of additional income, but their notion that we'll see no increase in prices, everyone will get a pay raise and a prebate, everyone is better off is saying th...
