I think Hummus is delicious


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...

Should their be a death penalty


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...

Should Prisoners have the Right to Vote?


I am interested in the debate over whether it is right the prisoner's should have the right to vote. My argument is that Prisoners should have the right to vote becuase it is a human right and once we begin taking away human rights where can we draw the line? If we assume the belief that someone forfits their human rights when convicted of a crime, what is protecting prisoners from unjust treatment and torture? This is my first argument, but I am interested in how other people feel on this i...

So the above is the general consensus, given the surrounding sent...

Canada should help Libya before helping their own country first?!


In my opinion, Canada should help their own country first. They should help their country as quick as they can so then after that they could help Libya. I'm not saying that Canada should not help other countries although, if Canada has millions of dollars to send planes to Libya, can't they use some of that money to feed the hungry people that we have in Canada? Many people go home and not having anything to eat that night, the next night and/or the whole week! Although Libya is in danger as we...
