Is Guantanamo Bay a good or a bad facility

TheDebater1
drew459

I believe that Gunatanamo Bay is a bad idea. According to the eigth amandment of the constitution of the United States of America, no unusual or cruel punishments bestowed on people. I believe that this is Rumsfeld doing and that Barack Obama didn't have the balls to do anything. But, I cannot ignore the fact that torture and other extreme punishments are being forced onto muslims. They may have done bad things, i will get a lot of hate for this. The people locked at Guantanamo Bay deserve to...

The death penalty has been increasing the Death toll over the world. This penalty has mostly been given to murderers, though th executioner then will himself be a murder, and he will go on and on and on until humantiy is extinct. Also why kill two people for only one murder? To add on many of us value our nations heroes though theey killed other people illegaly....

I look forward to an excellent debate :D...

Welfare is Modern-day Slavery

txreinsider

It's very simple and I challenge anyone to prove otherwise. Welfare is and has been a crutch for a long time particularly in the black community. When you have people proud of getting food stamp so that they can "sell" them to others for profit, then we have a problem. When we have graduates of a medical program turn down jobs because the money they make will affect their govt. benefits....we have a problem. When we have people that lie to take advantage of government housing and drive luxur...
