People with Ebola should not be killed because they have a chance of surviving. "I'm doing well and want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers," Pham said in a statement released by the hospital on Oct. 14. Pham's Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Bentley, is also being cared for in quarantine.

Rap Battle #2

Well...I guess I better start this up again. Although I'm currently struggling with three debates (along with a team one that I totally left my partner to dry T-T), let's see how this works out. Standard rules, 20 line limit, flow, creativity, blah blah blah. First round acceptance. No insults are to be taken seriously. Let's start then. ;D...

Should Marching Band be Considered a Sport

Should Marching Band be Considered a Sport? Okay so to start I believe that marching band should be considered a sport. But I want one thing to be clear before we go any further. I believe that there is a difference between show bands and competing bands. The argument that I will be proposing is that competition bands are part of a sport not show bands. They both have their reasons for why they should be considered a sport, but I would like to make this about competing bands. So first off th...

Should Surrogate Motherhood be Allowed?

Cases like the Baby M case have prompted opponents of commercial surrogacy to emphasize that such parenting arrangements tend to exploit poor, young, single, or ethnic/minority women desperate for money, and that some surrogacy agencies instruct surrogates to view themselves as mere incubators for intended rearing parent(s)" babies. In addition, some opponents of surrogacy object to non-commercial surrogacy for at least two reasons. First, a female family member may be pressured to demonstrate l...

Why the United States Needs To Be Invaded, Lose A War -

QueenAnnesRevenge
DarthVitiosus

This debate is wether or not the U.S. needs to be invaded. I, the Pro/For, argue in shirt, the U.S. needs to be invaded, and/or lose a war because of it's tyrannical and dictating rule over most of the rest of the world unable to protect themselves from the U.S. - The problem is the U.S., in that that are imposing their ideology and dictating ways on other cultures that cannot stay true to their own personal beliefs and ways of living because of big brother's "power" hold over them. - Th...

On balance, a ban on civilian firearm ownership would be beneficial to the United States

DK and I have been planning to do this debate for a couple weeks now. Standard debate rules apply; first round for acceptance, no new arguments in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc. I doubt any of that will be a problem, here. A quick note on the resolution-- the debate will NOT be revolving around the implementation of a gun ban; it will be about whether or not the effects of a gun ban which has already been implemented are positive. I look forward to an excellent debate :D...
