Gay marrige

Maciebaker
Zarroette

Hello, to whoever may read this. I do not mean to offend you but these are my beliefs and I do feel strongly about them. So, be prepared lol. I have always felt gay marrige should be legalized. Quite frankly until this week when it finally was, I never thought it would happen. I'm not a member of the LGBT community, but I'm 100% for it. Don't get me wrong, it's not a total shock to me when people want to use bible verses and Jesus Christ as reasons gays shouldn't marry. I understand completely....

The flag shouldn't be banned because it's a part of history. Now we can't buy confederate flags online but we can buy Isis and Nazi flags. What is wrong with this world?...

Should process servers be licensed?

pstradeus
scribblerg

In the American judicial experience presenting truthful information to the courts is not only morally required but absent truth lies are punishable under criminal law. We already have enforcement parameters under law. It is my position that a process server does not need to be licensed since their work product is transparent and presented to the court for review. IF a process server commits perjury or forgery there already are remedies against the action. Jail or toss the information out of t...

Resolved: The Federal Reserve should allow the U.S. economy to overheat

ResponsiblyIrresponsible

This debate is impossible to accept. If you accept without my permission, you automatically forfeit. Comment or PM me if you're interested, and I'll pick someone. Definitions and stipulations are also up for debate, though the crux of the argument I want to advance is this: the current state of the U.S. economy and the risk calculus - including international developments in Japan, Europe (particularly Greece, and the resulting contagion in Italy, Spain, and Portugal), and China as well as o...
