Welcome everyone to my 600th and final debate here on DDO.

The Nabisco-Russia Conspiracy is True


In this argument, I will attempt to prove that Russian Chancellor Vledimir Putin, known for his efforts to restore greatness to Russia, and his government are clandestinely working with the American corporation Nabisco. The idea seems absolutely absurd, which is why it has managed to fly under the radar until recently. However, there is an abundance of evidence for this conspiracy. According to the New York Times, "RJR [Nabisco], while also known for such food brands as Ritz crackers and Oreo...

It"s no doubt that in the world today there are people less fortunate than ourselves. In the United States we"re privileged to live in such a peaceful country. In countries such as Syria, families and people alike have to worry about the threat that is ISIS.

"Amanda, Arianna, Kayla, Vanessa, Lauren, Elizabeth, Sarah, Adrienne...etc." Notice anything in common? Yes, all ten are girls. The top 5% of the class is full of fem...
