Wealthy foreigners should be allowed to keep slaves

Let's say you decide to visit the chateau you own in the south of France. Naturally you will bring your butler, chauffeur, valet, chef and housemaids with you. Now let's say that after a couple of weeks there is a knock at the door and the butler announces the French police. It transpires that you are to be prosecuted because your domestic staff have been working in excess of the maximum of thirty-five hours per week permitted under French law, even though long hours is something they are perfec...

I would make a better Christian televangelist than my opponent

Peili

Jewing gullible people out of their hard-earned cash using the age-old, tried-and-tested televangelism scam is as easy as taking candy off a baby. That's why I have decided to become a pastor and what follows is the transcript of my first fundraising television commercial. I believe it will be superior to my opponent's. I hope you agree and vote in my favour in this one-round debate. ""Welcome fellow followers of the world's foremost faith - yes, that's right - good old Christianity! I am...

Obese Christians should be taught that they will burn in Hell

Mr and Mrs O'Beece were sitting at home watching television as they did all day every day. On this particular occasion they were watching a documentary about sub-Saharan Africa. "Golly!" exclaimed Mr O'Beece between mouthfuls of pizza, "Look at that lion tear that antelope limb from limb: I'd love to be there to witness that in person." "Yes," agreed Mrs O'Beece, "and I'd love to see with my own eyes some of those savages with bones through their noses go hunting and gathering in the savan...

The obese should not be entitled to disability benefits.

If you saw a physically handicapped person begging for food on the streets you'd help them out with a few quid (bucks) wouldn't you? You might also think it is disgraceful that disabled people are reduced to begging on the streets of a modern civilized country and decide to give money to a charity that helps handicapped people. You might even lobby the government to allocate disabled people more financial support from the public purse. And I would admire you if you did try and assist disabled...

The derogatory term "gay" should be replaced with "obese"

brian_eggleston

How often do you hear someone say "that's so gay" about something they wish to insult? Many times a day, I'm sure. This term of abuse represents an outrageous slur on gay men - male homosexuality is a disability just like any other - queers cannot help having defective genes that mutate their sexuality, so they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, just as if they were normal human beings. Therefore, it is important to challenge the use of the word "gay" in a derogatory sense. In...

Air should be privatized

Historically, people have enjoyed free access to the Earth's bounteous resources as a birth right. They were able to hunt and gather food, grow crops and graze livestock, build shelters and obtain water wherever they wanted because the land and its provisions belonged to everybody. People took this for granted and still do in many parts of the world which are not controlled by pro-capitalist governments. However, in capitalist countries property rights are enshrined in law and the land and it...

It's time to stop the fat of the land living off us.

brian_eggleston
Preston

The idiom 'living off the fat of the land' refers to the British aristocracy who do no work themselves but, instead, live a life of decadent self-indulgence courtesy of the workers who toil on their vast, inherited country estates to produce crops and animals for sale. The British landed gentry are undoubtedly indolent parasites but they are not the only ones sponging off hard-working people like you and I. No, the obese are similarly milking the system so they can stuff their big flabby...

You can take a savage out of South America but you can"t take the savage out of a South American

Uruguayan international and Liverpool FC forward Luis Suarez is, yet again, facing a lengthy ban from football for biting another player, this time an Italian defender during the Uruguay v Italy World Cup match this week. In behavior reminiscent of a ravenous chimpanzee devouring a captured monkey, the famished South American footballer started chomping away at the shoulder of Giorgio Chiellini in order to satisfy his voracious appetite. [1,2] But we really shouldn't be surprised that Sua...

The obese should not get the same benefits as the disabled.

Perhaps he expects us to feel sorry for him, he being the lazy, greedy, salad-dodging slob who is panting like Elton John at a boy scout meeting as he hauls his huge sweating folds of blubber across the car park to World of Iced Donuts, Greasy Burgerland, Deep Fried Seal Pups 'R' Us, or wherever? Perhaps he expects to be allowed to park right outside the shops just like the disabled person are? Perhaps he also thinks that the taxpayer should pay his rent and give him cash handouts so that...

A crackdown on paedophile Catholic priests: it"s time for a good old fashioned witch hunt

brian_eggleston
Bhawksfan234

In 1450 witch hunts began in earnest in many western European countries after the Roman Catholic Church created an imaginary evil religion, using stereotypes that had circulated since pre-Christian times. They said that pagans were evil witches who kidnapped babies, killed and ate their victims, sold their soul to Satan, were in league with demons, flew through the air, met in the middle of the night, caused male impotence and infertility, etc. [1] Of course, there is no such thing as witches...
