Should we eliminate sanctions against Iran to normalize relations?

DaniDichter
CiRrK

We can't begin to make progress if we continue to shut out countries that could be helpful. With the current situation in the Middle East, is this a good time to begin to rebuild relations? Particularly with the idea that we may be facing new governments that may or may not support us? Is this a good time to in essence begin anew?...

Should marijuana be legalized?

kboudreau

The legalization of marijuana has been and always will be a controversial issue in the United States. Many people argue that it is harmful to your health, dangerous and addictive, but isn't that exactly what alcohol and tobacco are and they are legal. We would like to argue that minus the fallacies, there's no real reason why marijuana should be illegal. In the United States you need to be at least twenty-one to purchase alcohol, and nineteen to purchase tobacco. In one year tobacco has caused 4...

"Yay Osama's dead" I have been seeing a lot of this knidove thing on social networks and the news stations that I watch and even calls to pull out of places like Afghanistan in the wake of this unfortunately, we're not there to kill one person. Whether you believe that we are there for oil, to find WMDs, to stamp out terrorism, to fight a fight that was brought to our shores as the US president said, to bright stability to the region or just to control it. I think we can all agree that killing O...

Man rapes 14 month old daughter. He should be put to death

JJ.Birkey
Rational_Thinker9119

In Missouri, a man rapes his 14 month old daughter, while the girlfriend watches. He killed the little girl by strangulation, the force of the impact would have killed her. The man is charged with first degree murder, the woman charged with second degree, sentence is undermined. Death Penalty should be used for this because the man took away the innocence of the this little girl, let alone for the murder. Yes, it is immoral, but so is the actions of this man and woman, they together, murdered th...

Jgar259
imabench

It is not fair that in the United States we can't know what is happening like the government has Area 51 as such a secret that we can't know what it is. I thought this was a free country can't we know what is happening in our country because if we can't than why is it so secretive is there aliens or you found the body of Jesus. Can everyone decide or vote on the government telling us about area51 or for they not to tell us. I'm going against the government that they should tell us about Area 51....
