oka

I'm following Prof instructions. The challenge you invited me to was on the wrong topic, and he said people on the left of the chart go first as Pros! _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ P1: Mandatory minimum sentences have not eliminated sentencing disparities because they have not eliminated sentencing discretion; they have merely shifted that discretion from judges to prosecutors. Judges may have...

Personally I am still candid on this issue but for the purpose of the argument I will be serving the Pro- Bounty Hunting Camp. I believe Bounty Hunting with be beneficial to society for the following reasons: i) It will reduce the unemployment by creating more job opportunities through both the training and maintenance of bounty hunting infrastructure. As well as the bounty hunting profession itself. ii) It will further deter criminals from committing crimes out of fear of having to deal w...

Do beauty pageants serve any purpose in society? Should there be any male ones?

I believe that beauty pageants do serve a purpose in society. I believe this because they have a lot of benefits to offer to the contestants who compete in them. Their purpose is to promote self-esteem and public-speaking abilities of the contestants. They do have a purpose because the people who compete in them have a purpose to participate in them....

A Federal System of Prostitution Should Be Allowed for America's Prisons

MyDinosaurHands
Justinian

This idea is what I plan on using as a Proposal in a youth program called CONA. http://www.ymcacona.org/main.html The ideal CONA proposal is debatable and controversial, which is why I have presented such an absurd solution to the problem of prison rape. I have spent a little time anticipating and receiving from my friends Cons in regards to the Proposal. As far as I can tell, I have solid refutations for all Cons at this point. However I would like to test it out on DDO. What exactly I'm...

There's a reason Nike apparel cost forty dollars for a "swat-proof" shirt. this reason isn't because it's the best shirt but because Nike is run by complete bags of fecal matter. they decide to take a symbol they paid a college students fifty dollars for and made a trillion dollars off of it because they are poisoning societies minds like the Nazis did to Jewish people in gas chambers...

Modesty

NiamC

I am in a crisis about modesty. I feel that I am not worthless but I do not feel my body is anything special. Not that I don't respect it but I feel like more free clothes would not be so terrible maybe because it is a human body. But it would be respected differently because not everyone could touch as for everyone could look. I don't believe one is a sex item and that they should be covered and that if one does not that it is their fault for being raped. I feel like I am more uncomfortable wit...
