Solving the obesity problem - my method

The only rule regarding this debate is that a sense of humour is required Obesity = a condition in which the natural energy reserve, stored in the fatty tissue of humans and other mammals, exceeds healthy limits. It is commonly defined as a body mass index (weight divided by height squared) of 30 kg/m2 or higher. Obesity is a growing concern (pun not intended). I have a few suggestions on how to solve this problem, if you disagree, well you know what to do! 1) The overweight people are...

The next U.S. president should implement a Universal Health Care system

The next U.S. president should implement a Universal Health Care system. There are still MILLIONS of Americans who can't afford health care. And many of these Americans without health care aren't able to get a job because of physical and metal issues, etc. By implementing a universal health care system, many more Americans will be able to have access to health care....

Circumsicion is necessary and ethical.

I believe that circumcision is genital mutilation. It has been shown that it is an effective way to prevent certain diseases, but proper hygiene is just as effective. So this then leads me to ask why take away a male's foreskin before he is even allowed to make the decision himself? He will never know what it was like to have those nerve endings, never know what it's like to have a non-mutilated penis. Circumcision on males does not create impotence, so what is the matter with having a few le...

The use of cannabis by adults should be legalized in the United States.

OK, rogueagent21 failed to post an argument in time for the first round, so it ended the debate. We've agreed to go again, even tho this will be the third time! Good luck! To clarify the resolution: simply, use of marijuana (both medicinal and recreational) be completely legalized in the US. Use of marijuana would thus no longer be against the law and would be allowed for adults over a certain age (Yet to be determined). My arguments: The use of marijuana has been prohibited and demonized...

Partial Birth Abortion Should Not Be Allowed Even If A Woman Was Raped.

DarkBitch
Puck

Ok here is my challenge I want this debate to be specific, My argument is against partial birth abortion (PBA) in the case of a woman having conceived through rape only! I don't wish to debate about PBA being used in cases of fetal disability or anything like that. My argument is a woman who is raped and conceives as a result of that rape should not legally be allowed to have a partial birth abortion. If you believe she should be allowed then lets debate. Please note I am not talking...

Health Care

Cheese is a luxouriouse item. I spelled that wring. Luxouriouse I mean. And now wrong is wrong. Well, it's actually wring, but it's meaning is wrong. Wring- twist something forcibly and painfully: to twist something such as an animal's neck forcefully, usually causing pain or death I guess I was wring on that too. I wonder if anyone will challenge this. Probably. I wonder if I will lose. Maybe. Horrifying. Inciting. " This debate is pointless and should be remo...

Smoking should not be allowed in public places.

armychick
thelemite

I strongly agree that smoking should not be allowed in public places.. As a citizen of the United States I do believe our rights are important. We are given the choice to be a non-smoker or a smoker. I choose to be a non-smoker, but my rights are violated when I'm out in a public facility and I'm forced to inhale second hand smoke. By that and these three reasons, I think smoking shouldn't be allowed in public places to an extent. First off, I know the effects that come from smoking and just b...

The Death Penalty Should Be Used In Certain Cases

mongoose
mongeese

Resolved: The death penalty should be used in certain cases There are many cases in which the death penalty is just and should be used. For example, if a man is proven that, without a doubt, he killed another man, that murderer should be killed. While it would be profitable to use the people in prison to do labor, the prisoner should at least be given the option between death and working in prison for the rest of his life.
