we should allow euthanasia of those living tortured lives and a terminal illness

linate
E_Pluribus_Unum

we should allow euthanasia of those living tortured lives and a terminal illness. why euthanasia is the moral permissiveness in this situation: -most people's biggest fear isn't death... it's pained living. that's why the "torture" debate is so gut wrenching and passion filled. -we understand intuitively that we should put dog's "out of their misery", as the humane thing to do. why with people is it suddenly inhumane? there is some merit to claiming people aren't dogs and have a higher dign...

What do you feel about the 2014 budget of India?

Politicallion
J03ybatts

The new government in India, has been elected with an absolute majority of the Bharatiya Janata Party. The new budget of 2014 is quite controversial and I am willing to debate on it. People in India are quite enigmatic. This enigma they possess is certainly justified due to the tough working and living conditions they have to face in an extremely polluted and populated area. In short words they are frustrated with the environment around and they wish for a government which will bring a change....

Homosexual Marriage

EchoboostX4

I'm pro-same sex marriage. I feel that it's neurological, and that you're born with the attraction to a gender, just like the types of people you like. I also believe that it's not wrong, and allowing gay marriage will not harm anyone, or anything. I'm all for hearing out people's opinions. I do love to counter so be prepared, I suppose....

Colin Mochrie is Funnier than Ryan Stiles

Superman.24

Understanding that this debate would be a giant splitting of hairs since both Colin and Ryan are absolutely invaluable to the American version of "Whose Line is it Anyway" by themselves and as a duo, I think it would be interesting to make a gun to our head decision about who is the funniest, or more importantly, who is the better cast member. I Have to defend Colin on this one simply because it seems obvious to me given the amount of laugh-out-loud moments he has given over the years compar...

Marine Mammals under human care

PotBelliedGeek
agennarelli

In this debate, I will argue in favor of keeping marine mammals under human care. To clarify, I will support the AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums) in their captivity methods and purposes. This does not include SeaWorld, as they are not part of the AZA and I do not have a direct association with them, thus I cannot speak for them. My opponent will argue against the AZA, and will argue in favor of marine mammal release. BOP is shared....

Public School should start After Labor Day and end by mid June

dtr
AsianGenius

Many communities are starting schools prior to labor day and ending in last week of June due to snow days. This is resulting in social, economic and educational problems that would be solved by making the school year tighter from start to finish. Socially, kids and families suffer with prior to Labor Day start (PLDS). Kids have a short summer to relax, hang with their "summer" friends, work, take a break, travel, go to camp, learn new things. Cutting this too short hurts those relationships...

Being vegan

Tommy.leadbetter
Aerogant

Ignorance - 'lack of knowledge or understanding'. I argue that eating meat is more selfish and less ethical than not eating meat. I also argue that in order to eat meat, one must be either more ignorant to life and nature than somebody who doesn't eat meat. PLEASE NOTE - This statement only refers to those in the developed world, not tribes, primitive cultures or underdeveloped countries....
