Don't you think the Boston Bombing was over hyped?

TheAdiDebater
NFLMember

First of all, I understand and acknowledge that the Boston bombing was a terrible event which never should have occurred. But don't you ever stop and think that a big deal is being made out of something substantially smaller? People were even thinking this could be compared to 9/11. On the same day 42 people die in an earthquake in Iraq. But does that receive even a tenth of what the Boston bombings received. No. This can't be defended....

In defense of evil part 1: The Unabomber was justified in his actions.

Wylted
G131994

Definitions; Justified: to prove or show to be just, right, or reasonable http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/justify The word reasonable is highly subjective so for the purposes of this debate , I will be arguing that the Unabomber was just or right. When I say the Unabomber's actions I'm specifically referring to the ones that made headlines before his real name was known by the public. If you don't qualify to accept this tournament but can show you will be a worthy oppon...

Should gay & lesbian marriages be legalized in India?

BiggBoss
Kc1999

Today India is a powerful country in various fields, but still there are various issues related to same sex marriages. Recently, the Supreme Court of India ruled homosexuality to be a criminal offence . MY CASE :- Gay or a lesbian does not change the fact that they are human and they have equal rights too. though, sometimes it may be shocking for one to meet such a personality at first, but later it will subside and we will get used to it. we must not look down upon people such because they...

Devyani Khobragade: US was wrong, but India is being immature !!

BiggBoss
NiqashMotawadi3

Devyani Khobragade treated her houseworker as a wage slave and expected to get away with it. That is ridiculous, as is her lawyer's excuse that she can't afford to pay the minimum wage ($1600/month). if you can't pay for the child, don't have one. The US treatment of her is ridiculous as well. She is a diplomat and deserves a few extra perks, being detained diplomatically and not having strip searches for a crime that wouldn't require it. If she were caught smuggling something, a cavity searc...

Darren Wilson was in the right

thatguy554
JayConar

The fact of the matter with this case is that Michael Brown has no argument for his defense. I'm not saying that it isn't horrible to lose a family member, but when someone assaults an officer of the law, you cannot pull an about-face and say that the officer was in the wrong. Here are the facts, -13 shots were fired at Brown, only a small number actually hit. -Blood and DNA from Brown were found on officer Wilson's weapon and pant leg, as well as inside the squad car, supporting the argu...
