celebrities should not be held liable for their endorsements.

If its the company that is advertising the product in a misleading way then it is the company that should be held responsible for being misleading, not the celebrity.... Its not the duty of the celebrity to know inside-and-out if the product they are advertising is in any-way misleading, nor are they the ones to blame if the product is indeed misleading in some way. If anything the company advertising the bad product are also trying to mislead people by using a celebrity endorsement to dupe p...

Over time, ideas and thoughts are being planted secretly so people can be controlled. people cannot see the truth behind the differences that different parties have, which is that they work for common and only true purpose, that is we should fight any idea that is different, any idea or believe that threaten or contradict with US government and laws or what so called "demo...

triangle.128k

Ladies and gentleman, the resolution we are debating on today is this house would ban fast food companies from advertising to children. But let me introduce to you my side of this debate. I will be against this resolution and my first argument I would like to present is obviously the freedom of choice. Is it the fast for companies fault for advertising and making children obese? No. People in America have the right to eat whatever they want and when we ban that option, freedom is disabled...
