Young people on tobacco farms

paigeb
Brock_Meyer

Child labor should be illegal on tobacco for many reasons. Tobacco farms are dangerous and there are no many agriculture laws taking precautions to protect young people from getting injured or preventing fatal accidents. The laws vary state by state, and children as young as 6 could work on tobacco farms, as long as it does not interfere with education. Hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries happen annually because children are not old enough. This is just with the machinery. Working on to...

I believe that the terrorist attacks of 9-11-01 were NOT an inside job. BOP is on my opponent, who will argue that the government/illuminati/Jews/Freemasons/ Rebublicans/Homer Simpson or whoever they want is resposnsible and that it was an inside job. Sources must be reliable, as I will check each and every one.Good luck, and let the debate begin! ...

Weapons in schools

LevesqueMSC2014

Weapons in schools should not be allowed. Faculty should not feel the need to take it to another level with weapons and if they do then they should call the police immediately. There are other objects around a classroom that teachers could use as a weapon to stop someone from acting up, firearms are not necessary....

Doritosguy93

During the 2010 U.S. Senate special election in Delaware, Christian O’Donnell released this hypnotically mesmerizing video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxJyPsmEaskShe claims not to be a witch. This is exactly what a witch would say, as not to arouse suspicion. To which, I will be arguing that Christine O’Donnell is a witch.First, who is Christine O’ Donnell? Well, she’s an...

The United Nations should intervene militarily in Syria

Invictus144
Biochemistry92

Thank you to whoever accepts this debate, as it is my first, and I wish you good luck. I believe that the United Nations (UN) should intervene militarily in Syria for various reasons. Primarily in that regardless of the knowledge that Assad has agreed to and I believe completed the handover of chemical weapons. Assad has used these chemical weapons, which is a breach of "Chemical Weapons Convention" (CWC) which came into force in 1997. Worse than this, Assad used these chemical weapons on civ...
