In today's society there is a great percentage of Americans who are on government assistance and welfare. These assistance programs include but are not limited to, food stamps, sis, tca, unemployment, disability and many more. These governmental funded programs I believe are one of many of the reasons are economic growth has depleated. It is a statistical and proven study that the average U.S Citizen or uses these programs have no intention on getting off of them. In other words, these individua...

THBT the government should protect the minority group"s culture

hanwoo

I believe that the minority's group should be protected from the government because if the government protects the minorities, the government can receive taxes from the minorities. For example, China's more than 5000 minority groups, if China supports them the China government can exact taxes....

Mandatory Drug Tests for Welfare Recipients?

IwinYoulose333
AIyssa

I started this debate as more of a discussion instead of an argument. I am personally for the use of random drug test for welfare recipients, because I don't believe most taxpayers want to directly fun drug money for other people. I am interested to hear the other side, however, both in my opponents arguments, and in the comments. By the way don't tell me I should have gone to the forums for a discussion; those places are evil....

These methods include physical and psychological stress, the most severe being water boarding. The methods are non-lethal. An ABC News article describes the methods, at least in general: [1. http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/Investigation/story?id=1322866.] The article says tha...

Should girls be able to hit a guy and expect not to get hit back? (please speak in general context)

kizzet
lillawyer

Simply stated, I will start off with the argument that although guys are generally physically stronger than women (There are few exceptions of course), many girls believe it is okay to hit a guy. I don't think guys should ever hit a girl without a good reason, but if a girl unintelligibly hits a guy who is stronger than her, like if a man picks a fight with a bear, you should expect consequences. It's ridiculous for girls to take advantage of the socially accepted fact that "guys shouldn't hit g...
