Young people on tobacco farms

Child labor should be illegal on tobacco for many reasons. Tobacco farms are dangerous and there are no many agriculture laws taking precautions to protect young people from getting injured or preventing fatal accidents. The laws vary state by state, and children as young as 6 could work on tobacco farms, as long as it does not interfere with education. Hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries happen annually because children are not old enough. This is just with the machinery. Working on to...

FEBRUARY
bluesteel

See: TrueJusticeForMeredithKercher, Rudy Guede posts. NO WAY is the indictment of AMANDA KNOX and RAFFAELE SOLLECITO a matter of corruption, or international/ political bias; GUILTY!

(Meredith's arms were held behind her back). Dr Galati"s appeal argued it was ILLEGAL for Hellmann and Zanetti NOT to have taken the Supre...

9-11 was an inside job.

PotBelliedGeek
IslamAhmadiyya

I believe that the terrorist attacks of 9-11-01 were NOT an inside job. BOP is on my opponent, who will argue that the government/illuminati/Jews/Freemasons/ Rebublicans/Homer Simpson or whoever they want is resposnsible and that it was an inside job. Sources must be reliable, as I will check each and every one.Good luck, and let the debate begin! ...

LevesqueMSC2014

Weapons in schools should not be allowed. Faculty should not feel the need to take it to another level with weapons and if they do then they should call the police immediately. There are other objects around a classroom that teachers could use as a weapon to stop someone from acting up, firearms are not necessary....
