Debate arguments that contain unnecessary repetitions should be considered null and void

The English language contains various different terms, phrases, idioms, expressions and sayings that, to all intents and purposes, repeat themselves. First and foremost among these, alphabetically-speaking, is the legal term ‘assault and battery'. The two nouns in this saying have broadly the same meaning - "assault": a violent physical attack; and "battery": the act of battering or beating. (1) Is it really necessary to employ such repetition in order to maintain law and order? Other simi...

Governments must act more decisively to stop the spread of AIDS

When people used to contract a contagious disease for which there is no cure, such as leprosy, they were isolated from the rest of society in order to prevent that disease from spreading. Thankfully, these days, leprosy can be easily treated (1) which is why sufferers are no longer confined to leper colonies. But what about people with HIV/AIDS? There is still no cure for this fatal disease yet people infected with HIV are allowed to roam the streets without let or hindrance. As a result of t...

The NFL should kick racist teams out of American football

Please examine the following list of team names and see if you can spot the odd one out: New York Kikes; Cleveland N!ggers; Green Bay Pakis; Denver Dagos; Indianapolis Wops; Washington Redskins; Pittsburgh Greasers; San Francisco 4x2s*; New Orleans Spics; Dallas Coolies; Tampa Bay Towelheads. Can guess which one it is? No? Okay, I'll tell you: it's the Washington Redskins because that is the genuine name of an actual NFL football team whereas I just made the others up. It's o...

The Breast Enhancement Society of Great Britain should enjoy charitable status

Tragically, thousands of unfortunate young women in Britain today are forced to wear padded-bras because nature failed to provide them with the beautiful bouncing boobs that most girls take for granted. There is, of course, a solution: breast enhancement surgery is a safe and widely available operation but, because it is classified as cosmetic surgery, it is not available free of charge on the National Health Service. The cost of breast enhancements at a private clinic can run into thousan...

Shakespeare's works should be abridged and enhanced to make them more enjoyable

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: Romeo &...

On the balance of probability, Jesus faked his own crucifixion, resurrection and ascension

According to the Bible, Noah died aged 950 yet Jesus died when he was about 30. Because it is so improbable that God would let a mere mortal live for the best part of a millennium and yet allow his own son to die so young, we have to consider the possibility that Jesus faked his own crucifixion, resurrection and ascension and that, in fact, he lived for many more years, and may even be walking among us today. Motives --------- 1. Jesus was a Jew and helping the poor and needy would not have...

Homos that rape underage girls should not face prosecution

For those who don't know, Homo floresiensis are diminutive hominoids who are known to have lived on the Indonesian island of Flores as recently as 13,000 years ago, when it is believed a volcano wiped them out. [1] However, Flores is very remote and largely unexplored so it quite possible that some Homos survived the eruption and their decedents are living on the island, undiscovered, to this day. It is my intention to capture some of these Homos and breed them in captivity for sale as pet...

The food, the fat and the gluttony: it's time to help the obese help themselves

Two news stories caught my eye this week. Firstly the misery and suffering of the acutely malnourished children in the world's largest refugee camp in Kenya. http://edition.cnn.com/2011/HEALTH/08/09/largest.refugee.camp/index.html Some might say these children are the lucky ones as thousands of other kids have already starved to death in famine stricken East Africa. The second story that took my attention concerned a New Jersey woman, Donna Simpson, who weighs in at 602lb (43 stone...

A woman's place is in the home

brian_eggleston
PartamRuhem

Research shows that the majority of people believe that a woman's place is in the home: looking after the children; attending to domestic duties and ensuring her husband's dinner is on the table when he comes in from work. [1] Sadly, many women these days have chosen to abandon their feminine duties and pursue careers in industry and commerce instead - and it stands to reason that their families have suffered as a result of their neglect. Meanwhile, there is mass unemployment with the resu...

It's time for the workers of the world to unite

F-16_Fighting_Falcon

It is time for the proletariat to unite and rise up against their bourgeoisie oppressors in order to dismantle those social and political instruments of power the ruling classes employ in order to promote privilege and patronage amongst themselves, thus preventing the working classes from shaping their own destinies and denying them the opportunity to fully enjoy the fruits of their labours. In the first phase of this process, the following measures would be implemented: * The full nationa...
