Well lets see if Obama and Bush were to go against each other in a presidential debate Obama would win and here is why. First of all Bush lied through his teeth when he ran the last time, talking about he was going to fix everything as for Obama is doing what he said he was going to do and then some. Two Bush did not do nothing his first 100 days in office as for Obama he traveled around and met many other presidents and actually sat down and talked with them. Obama was not the only one...

A harder riddle... :DThere is a blind man. The man has been blind since he was born. A mysterious man comes out and says to the blind man" since you are blind, I have a potion that can make you see again." The blind man takes the potion and then he can see. The misterous man goes away and Sherlok Holmes comes. He holds up a red hand cuff and says to the man that was blind but not now," what color is this?" The man looks at the hand cuff ve...

Am I Christine O'Donnell?

During the 2010 U.S. Senate special election in Delaware, Christian O’Donnell released this hypnotically mesmerizing video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxJyPsmEaskChristine O’Donnell claims to be you. She claims that she is you indefinitely. She was taking to an open audience, addressing the entire population. She was talking to all of us. The referents are us. In this, she claims to be us and thus she claims to be me. But if she is me, then who am I?...

Bullying

My argument is against bullying because it can cause people to kill them selves and i have friends that have tried to kill them selves. Most people are afraid to stand up to bullies because they have been bullied so much that they think its ok or because they don't want to be bullied. Well i have been and still am being bullied. I look at the kids that bully me and i smile because nothing they can do will hurt my SPIRIT no matter what even if they kill me i still have my SPIRIT. I want to hear y...

Mahmoud Ahmedinijad is not wrong to not listen to the U.S.'s request that they stop making nukes

abard124

I am in no way endorsing Mahmoud Ahmedinijad. He is a horrible extremist, and he is a very hateful person. However, I have no problem with his nuclear weapons program. Let me clarify. I am against every nuclear weapons program in the world. I hate nukes, however, I don't hate Ahmedinijad's program any more or less than the rest, which brings me to my first point. If you and your friend were both smokers, and neither of you were trying to quit, what would you think if your friend told you to q...

Allowing deep water offshore drilling is in the United States best interest

jingzhezhang
Ramshutu

Recently, President Obama issued a 6 month moratorium on deep sea drilling. This supposedly gives experts enough time to examine the problems in the Deep Water Horizon oil well and set new regulations. I will be debating that this is a grand mistake. I will be in affirmation of the resolution. I state 3 contentions to support the resolution: 1. Allowing deep water offshore drilling decreases US reliance on foreign oil. 2. Allowing deep water offshore drilling increases the supply of usabl...
