Bnesiba

I will provide a list of topics, choose one, you're CON, I'm PRO. Then in R2 I go and post. Note, I am playing Devil's advocate in some places. 1. Most nonhuman Animal's do not deserve rights. 2. Utilitarianism is superior to Kantianism. 3. Sarah Palin is not as incompetent as she is made out to be. 4. Cannibalism of dead people should be socially acceptable, if not encouraged. 5. Agriculture was a mistake. 6. Anarchy could feasibly work. 7. Functionalism is a flawed theory of mind. 8....

Whenever the teachings of a religion is so wrong, that disobedience to its teachings is in fact doing what was right, like saving life, for example, then we may know that God did not set up that religion, but that it is the product of sinful man. In the Bible we are told about God: "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity…" Hab. 1:13. This shows us that YHWH the one and only true God is so holy that He had nothing to do with corruption, but not so, with the Hin...

Negative- I stand in negation, "Resolved: In a democratic society, felons ought to retain the right to vote." I offer the following definitions for clarification of the resolution:   Democracy- the political orientation of those who favor government by the people or by their elected representatives. (If argued in CX, state that felons do not favor the government because they cannot abide by the rules that the government has set forth.)   Felon- Someone who commits a felony; A Felony is a l...

Hi, I'm Stephen Yoo and this is my first speech on the proposition side, on the motion that parents should not buy war toys for children. I'd like to start by explaining exactly what a war toy is. From the Swedish Toy Council, "War toys are playthings which are used to solve conflicts, gain power, or win through the use of violence and imagination. Their aim is to destroy and kill." Next, I'd like to go on to my contentions. Contention 1 Toys are for fun, and not for violence. At an ear...

Tracy Mc Grady is the biggest waste of money in the NBA

sllewuy
brittwaller

Tracy Mcgrady in my opinion is the biggest waste of money in the NBA. Tracy Mcgrady has been worth $63million for the past 3 years (including this year) and he is the biggest waste of money that a franchise as sad as the Rockets has had to spend on a player. Why? Reason 1: Tracy Mcgrady has not been able to finish a complete season in his entire tenure with the Houston Rockets. This season Tracy will be making the most money in the NBA ($23,239,561) and he is expected to miss at least half t...
