Quebec Separatism

comport
Buyhers86

I feel that as a self-proclaimed minority, Quebec is taking advantage of the rest of the Canadian provinces, they use our federal government's money, they are given all the same health benefits, and they are in most cases admired by English-speaking Canadians. Maritimers often journey out to the great city of Montreal, to vacation and embrace the French culture. Meanwhile the Francophone are loathing the Anglophones, and wishing they could be rid of us, and rely on themselves rather then the Can...

Georgia

With many people in today's society going online and making friends it is not threatening our privacy as we have the choice to add friends, show our face book, myspace pictures and profile.

The drinking age should be lowered to 18 (redone)

pabeltrani
bekd80

In this debate, I will argue that the legal drinking age for the United States should be lowered to 18, while the Con will debate that it should state at 21. Due to problems with the previous debate, this will be a redo of the original. Round 1 will be dedicated to the acceptance of the debate, with the standard debate following that. I wish the Con best of luck for the debate!...

Facebook imposes

fbdebate
bossyburrito

Facebook imposes on you to reveal your true identity, are you aware of this? Article 1 of their ‘TOS' explicitly states, "You will not provide any false personal information on Facebook, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission." A statement in ‘direct conflict' with remaining anonymous on the internet for guaranteed privacy. Article 2 states, "You will keep your contact information accurate and up-to-date.". Almost sounds like a direct order doesn't it? H...

Ok, Fellas here is what I think. I have been argueing with someone about this this evening. That when we eat beef or veal, we should not feel guilty or sympathy about it. Because Firstly God said we can. Secondly, Cows have no self awareness. They dont understand. If they dont understand, it means that apart from the physical disturbance that the pain it brings when human kill them, They experience no mental trauma. Therefore we, as we ea...

Feminism is used against men.

salshasam

First round will be an acceptance round. I think feminism is used against men and is insane. My opponent (obviously) will think the opposite. After an opponent has been chosen, we both will come up with rules. 4 rounds (1 acceptance round) translates to 3 rounds....
