UN Resolution 1674 should be invoked to stop the genocide in Gaza

‘Tis the season of peace and goodwill to all men! Well, not according to the Israelis it would seem. As Jewish Israeli families celebrate Hanukkah by feasting, exchanging gifts and generally making merry, their neighbours in Gaza, already desperately short of the basic necessities of life, are being bombarded by Israeli Air Force jets and, with no way of defending themselves, are being murdered in their hundreds every day. So while Jewish children in Israel are joyfully opening their pr...

That, by 2040, the federal government should mandate that all new passenger vehicles and light truck

The only thing Obama could agree with Bush about is bailing out the auto industry, because the industry was obviously failing . With the bailout of American auto-companies being hotly debated before Congress, this issue is at the forefront of the discussion. America's transportation sector is heavily reliant on oil, most of which is imported from foreign countries. Therefore this brings us to the resolution , That, by 2040, the federal government should mandate that all new passenger vehicles an...

Should we pull out of Iraq?

Herbert Hoover once said, "Older men declare war, but it is the youth that must fight and die." Our invasion of Iraq is unjustified we went there in search of weapons of mass destruction, but we found none, and still we are there. Its like a search warrant, you search for the things you are looking for only. We dont need to try to control another country when we can barley control our own...

I think Hummus is delicious

Brewmaster
McBain

So I'm sitting here at my desk, and suddenly I'm struck with a thought. I'm eating pretzels with Hummus, and suddenly I realize that I freakin love hummus. It's delicious. Or at least, I think that it is. However, I find that I am often wrong when I have thoughts. My brain simply isn't capable of processing an idea that complicated. Therefore I ask you to attempt to prove that I do not think hummus is delicious, and I will argue as best I can, and in the end I'll have a better idea of whether...

Observations: The use of forced child labor in third world countries basically forces children to work in adult environments. If a limb is cut off then the child is fired without...

Should their be a death penalty

Kingjames
BillBonJovi

No their should not. Their are many people out there who have done very little crimes like speeding or parked in a wrong spot, does that mean they deserve a death penalty. They are still nice people, they should not be punished that harshily. Many celebrities today have done way worse things than that like drug possesion, gun possession, or attempted suicide, those crimes should lead those people to death penalty so no I dont believe in a death penalty...
