Our economic situation

TeeJayFlow
Mysterio

Directly from my blog, the link to the original article that I replied to is also on the blog. http://teejayflow.blogspot.com/2011/10/debt-forgiveness-only-possible-way-out.html After using our tax dollars to bail out banks that are corrupt and greedy in the first place, the banks still refuse to cut their current profits in spite of the entire economy's condition. Making people pay MORE when they are making LESS makes no logical sense whatsoever, and the banks don't care. They hurt themselve...

This debate will focus on the opinion that anyone who opposes raising the debt ceiling for any reason or without any concessions is wrong. Here is an example to clarify if needed: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/05/28/979892/-Mitch-McCon...

Public Labor Unions Are Beneficial to Society

Ron-Paul
zgb1997

Full Resolution: Public labor unions are beneficial to society. I will be negating this resolution. BoP is shared. Definitions: Public Labor Unions: "An organization intended to represent the collective interests of workers in negotiations with employers over wages, hours and working conditions. Labor unions are often industry-specific and tend to be more common in manufacturing, mining, construction, transportation and the public sector."[1] Public means government run. Ben...

Essential services should be socialized, and privatized services should be regulated.

Jo2599
YellowPandaBear

I will begin by offering 3 main premises for my argument. 1. Most essential services that all human beings are entitled to as members of society should be socialized. Socialized, meaning owned and operated by the community as a whole, whether that means through the Government, or by general worker consensus. Essential services include healthcare, education, food/housing for the poor, roads, public transit, etc. I am now ready to hear from my opponent. 2. Other services (As in, cell phones...

First round: accept the debate. Second: openings, no rebuttals. Third: rebuttals. Fourth: closing....

Capitalism vs Socialism (Economically) Dbt 2

Barnabas
henryajevans

The first debate of this sort ended in a forfeit, and thus I am going to re-up it. I will post my opening again. "I will argue for the advocation of pure capitalism with the only socialism being in the providing of very minimal needs to those who need it (i.e. Education, Food, Water, Shelter, Healthcare, etc)." And on acceptance, I will likely repost my first round, in hopes of founding a counter-argument. 3000 character limit....

Is the modern, international fur trade fair?

Sk8
kbub

This is not exactly a debate. I'm doing a project/debate on the topic listed above at school. I'm on the opposition side for the actual debate. I'm having trouble thinking of arguments for this topic. Could anyone help? You don't have to give me a physical argument, if you find a website that might apply, you can post that in the comments or accept the debate. Please help! It would be greatly appreciated!...
