It is just dumb to fill up the debates with super hero's and Pokemon stuff. There are actually people doing assignments trying to find debates to go to the next grade to graduate. Really grow up ... For all I care go on to wiki answers , yahoo answers. But this is a professional site that is supposed to be used for important debates. Thank you!...

9/11: All conspiracy theories about 9/11 are painfully false.

Zdawg
Ozzyhead

If anyone out there believes an alternate reality of the events of 9/11 and thinks they can prove it, I challenge you. If you believe the US government was behind it, it was a controlled demolition, there were no planes, it was a space beam, Larry Silverstein did it, or it was done so we could go to war in the middle east, or any other crazy theory, please prove it....

Resolved, that English should be made the official language of the United States

reubenco
Danielle

Language may be the most important aspect to assimilating into a society. When a member of a community cannot understand the lingua franca, that will prevent them from becoming a productive citizen and will alienate everybody else. We currently see many people (about 15 million), mostly immigrants, in the United States who cannot even speak English, and that completely shuts them out from interacting with born Americans. It is estimated that 322 languages are actively spoken in the United States...
