The deaths of Michael Brown and that one other guy have saddened America deeply. (At least one person in America.) It's not fair that police have to kill innocent people. Police are on this Earth and created by god to protect us, not kill us....

For the past year or so it has been nearly impossible to find "real" news.....TV, Radio, newspapers, social media seem to be intent on reporting on the most outrageous news articles and celebrity coverage. Just saying......there are everyday terrific news about regular people and causes....maybe too boring for the mass readers, etc. Your thoughts people?...

Should we track down former Nazis?

I understand what these people did. World war 2 had ended in 1945. That was 70 years ago. A couple hundred years ago we killed thousands of American Indians because we invaded their land and put them to work. The people that did it are still called heroes today. No one would have hunted them down if they were alive. These people were just following their gut. Some of them were good people as well. They snuck bread to dying children or were doctors in the infirmaries. They helped people. All the...

Is Anonymous really "bad"

Bolas
gannon260

This is purely an argument for the sake of your opinion if you choose to do so. My future opponent, just give your beliefs and a reason why you think that they are bad. Best of luck to you. In my eyes the hacker group known as Anonymous is not bad. Now, they do things in ways that may not be the best, but they are purely for the people worldwide. From the U.S to France , to Greece, to Germany, and many more countries. They do not tolerate unfair judgement of people or the use of lethal force. S...

I will argue in this debate that Protective Edge (name of the latest Israeli military operation in Gaza Strip, and, to a lesser extent, in the West Bank) was justified, and was also conducted with professionalism and moderation . First round for acceptance Second round for the argumentation Third round for rebuttal and counter-argumentation Last round for conclusion...
