Preschool Is A Waste Of Time

Phil
Crystal

Parents should not send their children to preschool for several reasons. First and foremost, the year is better spent with a full-time parent. In addition, most children will learn very little at preschool. Contrary to claims made by preschool advocates, children are not better equipped because of preschool. They may develop social skills and hand painting skills sooner, however children that miss preschool will quickly catch up before they finish the first grade....

(1) initiation includes HAZING, which, as we all know many people died. (2) i do not find any benefits of having fraternities in school. it only shows that we do not have to establish organizations, such as fraternities in schools. it's just a big mess!!...

Craft is the more prominent feature of literary art than inspiration.

The talent of a writer will fade out if he didn't use craft. Reading another writers' works will help to introduce better technics and literary devices to your own writing....

PreacherFred

There can never be peace for everyone or will crimes ever cease to be comitted. The government cant do anything to stop anyone because the world itself will always have the aura of chaos about it. meaning people debating or arguing about racism or prejudices or violence is not going to do anything to save us from any of those evils....

Gay marriage

tsmart1770
Harlan

As there are many sub-topics that can be debated within this broad subject, I am choosing to focus purely on the question: Does the United States government have the power to pass legislation that obligates the catholic church to accept gay marriages within their cathedrals? It is my sound opinion that the government does not hold this power. If we look at the principles that the US was founded on, "freedom of speech, press, religion..." we must realize that this directly contradicts our f...

The Canadian government should legalize the use of marijuana

chadalawada
tiamtheelf

A lot of people are dying because people start taking marijuana. Marijuana is the most commonly abused illicit drug in the United States. A dry, shredded green/brown mix of flowers, stems, seeds, and leaves of the hemp plant Cannabis sativa, it usually is smoked as a cigarette (joint, nail), or in a pipe (bong). It also is smoked in blunts, which are cigars that have been emptied of tobacco and refilled with marijuana, often in combination with another drug. It might also be mixed in food or bre...

Man-Made Global Warming Is A Hoax

Phil
qtpi2008

Global warming is turning into the biggest hoax in the last 100 years. It is the child of anti-american thinkers who, given the chance, will use it to harm the US' economy and strength in the world. Liberal politicians are pushing global warming as a means of control. If enough people believe in global warming, then the government will have greater control over what we drive, eat, and even how we live our lives. Let's not forget they'll be able to tax us into oblivion because we're "destroyin...

River Rafting Should Not Be Regulated

Phil
Nate

The wild rivers of the USA belong to the people, not to environmental advocates or park rangers. If a group of people want to raft down one of America's rivers, they should not be required to get a permit. Common sense, general safety rules, and environmental care should be used instead....

George W. Bush is a great President

Phil
Cristy

George W. Bush is a great President, and has served the U.S. honorably. While there appears to be significant outrage by a majority of Americans, I believe it is in fact a minority whose voices are being hyped by the leftist media. The far left never recovered from Al Gore losing in the 2002 election, and as time has gone on, the leftists in this country have done everything possible to find fault with President Bush. Despite the fake outrage portrayed by the media, President Bush in fact a grea...

Gun control

tsmart1770
volleynolley

I personally believe that every person within the US has enough responsibility to own a gun and to not abuse this privilege. Without these weapons, many people would feel insecure within their homes. Additionally, if we were to take guns away from our citizens, the use of illegal, and unregistered guns would drastically increase. Therefore allowing our citizens to own guns is immensely important....
