Death Penalty

Ore_Ele
Danielle

Full resolution: The death penalty is an ideal form of punishment for particular criminal cases. My stance on the Death Penalty: While I support rehabilitation in as many cases as possible, there are some cases where the Death Penalty is the best option. I only believe that the DP (Death Penalty) will be of absolutly no value when we have the option of completely (with 100% certainty) brainwashing criminals to esentually make them into "new" people. Now, in order for this debate to really...

Hey you! Yes you - reading this. You are a racist! Oh, yes you are, and if you don't like being called a racist, sue me and I'll take you for every penny you've got (provided I win this debate which will form part of my legal argument, so please vote for me folks otherwise I'll be bankrupted). You see, it doesn't matter from which ethnic group you originate or how politically correct you like to think you are, the fact is, each and every one of us is a racist. To illustrate my point, pleas...

Protecting Animal Rights

dollydo
xxdarkxx

Animal rights is ethically justified, in the fact that it's basic principle lies in the foundations of the value of life. If you believe that animal rights is unjustified then you also have to believe that human rights is unjustified. What makes someone care about another persons life? What makes me care about your life? Why are murderers sentenced to prison? Society as a whole puts value on life...and those that do not value life (like the murderers) are removed from society, and made to suffer...

Private entities ought to be able to discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, etc.

s0m31john
Demosthenes

Private entities ought to be able to discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin without hassle from government or law enforcement. I am not interested in a semantics debate. If any confusion regarding the resolution exists please ask about it in the comments section and I will clarify. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. In recent times and times past people have taken private...

Solarman1969 is rood mainly for the attention.

padfo0t
Solarman1969

Hi , During a debate concerning the sport of swimming, Solarman1969 and I got into a verbal arguement that may still now be going on. Nevertheless, he will probably make a comment on this debate (if accepted) on how I am a 'scared mouse', or another common 'little boy-girl'. Either this, or a cheek remark of the opposite that oozes sarcasm. Solarman1969- yes you!- feels the need to maintain his reputation as a rood jerk who can never win a debate. He is probably not that bad a person in real l...

So the questions stands. "Is Homosexuality wrong?" Homosexuality is not wrong. 1)Many people, automatically bring up the bible, when faced with this question. And thats fine, for those that believe the bible. But, what about those that dont? Sure the bible has been used to set the foundations of countries an...
