Gay Marriage

gonovice

I believe that Gay marriage is completely okay. It is a way of two people who really love each other to show there commitment for each other. It means something to them. There is no reason for it to not be legal in the whole country. All they want is to be treated as equals not be looked at as outcasts. They did nothing to be treated badly. You don't have to be completely comfortable to allow it. They aren't hurting anyone so why are they being treated like it. Just because its different doesn't...

The Government Should Not Fund The Arts

Phil
nypuller

The US Government, or any government for that matter, should not be in the business of funding the art industry. For the same reason the government shouldn't fund gas companies or stock brokers, artists should have to prove their worth in the marketplace. Professional artists choose their job like the rest of us (unless you live in a socialistic country). Artists know exactly what the salary and risk is before they choose their profession. The government should not take someone else's hard ea...

Birth Control in Middle Schools

Many students are starting to experiment with sex at an earlier and earlier age. Although it may be the responsibility for parents to educate and provide information about birth control to their children, there are a lot of parents that are failing to do so or failing to do this at an early enough age. Because of this phenomenon there is an increasing amount of pregnancies, abortions and STDs because of lack of information. Even though it is sometimes believed that introducing this information m...

The moral code of the christian religion is violent and hateful.

Harlan
PreacherFred

Before you here my argument, hear this. It is good to believe in something, it truly is; but do not be a slave to that belief. Beliefs change. Do not split your mind in two, and deny contradicting information because you are afraid of being seen as blasphemous. If you're beliefs are true, then you should be able to consider, hear other argumants, and be skeptical, and it will still be true. Splitting your mind is extremely unhealthy. Ponder on your beliefs, and let me start a seed of critical th...

Capitolism

Harlan
Phil

Capitolism creates a tense society where everyone is working for self-promotion. All of our (American) society is based on someone trying to outdo someone else; someone trying to sell something to you; Someone trying to use you for a profit. They see you as a way to make money. Next time your outside in a city, take a look around. Theres billboards trying to use you to make a profit. Theres prople walking around with T-shirts that encourage you to give your money to certain large corporations. W...

We should not try to ban flag burning.

Harlan
Semper-Fi

To ban flag burning would be to deny our first amendment rights. It is a way to express our opinion. The support for a law banning flag burning does not come from any sort of idealism for public safety. It comes from blind, slave-like, obsessive patriotism. To deny our first amendment right would make many people, such as myself, very indignant. It would actually hurt public safety. Personally, I think that the Constitution should represent America more than a piece of cloth (often made in...

America is a slave to fashion.

Semper-Fi
wryan

My argument isn't really that eloquent, but here goes. I've been around for a while, and everywhere I go, somebody is criticized about the clothes they wear or how they wear their clothes. But then there are people who are trying to act "cool" or "gangsta". But who really invented these styles anyway? Well, what I', trying to say, is that people will always be criticized about their clothes....
