While these are certainly debatable, being largely seperate and rather nuanced subjects, they would be best suited to their own debates. Anyone interested in that should feel free to start or challenge a debate on those.<...

This debate should be impossible to accept. Comment if interested....

I am seeing so many politics on the news, I want a break from the race for president. 2. Keep the topic appropriate. Nothing sexual, violent, vulgar, or anything like that. 3. Keep...
