Should Shakespeare be taught in School

Georgia
LR4N6FTW4EVA

Shakespear should not be banned in schools as it teaches us about ENglish History, Our english culture and Shakespear even if it was a disguse made words up that today are in the english dictionary. English language was first coined by William Shakespeare which should be a good enough reason in itself. I think it's really important, we should be learning about anything that is so well known in the world, especially Shakespeare. I have found that all the analysing texts in English at my sch...

The Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip was Justified (3rd attempt)

Watchman81
Peleus

Okay, I'll try this debate one more time! Maybe the third time's the charm. My position is that Israel's decision to launch military attacks in the Gaza Strips against the terrorist group Hamas is justified. Israel's goal is to achieve a viable peace and to stop the rocket fire. The only way for this to happen is for Israel to destroy as much of Hamas' members and their rockets as possible. It is clearly apparent that Hamas does NOT desire peace with Israel. This is why they continue to la...

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...

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...

LeBron James is better than Kobe Bryant

RedDominique
TFranklin62

I would like to say that LeBron James is better than Kobe Bryant because even though they both came from high school, Lebron ranks #1 in minutes played, field goals made, points, Total Efficiency Points, ranking, and also ranking in 48 minutes. Even though Kobe went to the NBA when Michael Jordan was still playing and has the second most points scored (81) behind Wilt Chamberlain (100) and even though they beat them at last year's Conference Finals and won the NBA Finals and won NBA Finals MV...
