Hunting

crackofdawn
rex-town

This argument is going to based off of whether the government should let hunting continue or ban it. I am pro for letting it continue. I will let my opponent point out why he thinks it should not continue and respond to his arguments. I thank my opponent in advance for taking on this controversial topic and wish him good luck....

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...

oh_so_fast

Well I am close to neutral on this subject, but I saw no one else has said anything yet on this site so I figure why not. I will vote pro on this. Anywise I think Coldplay ripped of the song If "I Could Fly" with their "Viva La Vida". Joe Satriani is suing Coldplay for this.

Private Firearms are Necessary for the People to Possess and Use

constitution1110
feverish

For the purpose of this debate, I wish to defend the position that privately-owned firearms are a hugely beneficial tool for the private population to possess for this reason: Private firearm ownership reduces crime I do not include the 2nd Amendment as part of my argument as the question I wish to ask is not "Is gun control Constitutional?" or "What is the meaning of the Second Amendment?", but rather "If the Constitution never existed to protect private firearm ownership, would there st...

hahajoker91

This debate is that PC computers operate better then Apple/Mac computers. Please Note I am not saying Apple/Mac computers suck I am simple debating they are not as VERSATILE as a PC. I personally don't mind Apple computers. Windows machines are used by more than 70% of all computer users around the world. In this debate we need to address the key ideas of -Operation -Security -Functionality -Web Browsing -Cost -Compatibility -Media I will leave it for the con to begin the argume...
