Hayd

IntroHayd asked for people who were willing to debate old LD topics with him, and I was happy to volunteer myself. I don't believe Hayd and I have debated yet, so this should be a wonderful opportunity to do so--he is an excellent debater, and I look forward to our upcoming exchange.As this topic involves a controversial subject on which people may or may not have strong opinions, I have opted to nominate a judging panel of people I know to be qualif...

School uniform: good or bad

I think that kids uniforms are boring kids want to be unique they want to be their self no uniforms is one way to do that. Kids want at least a little bit of freedom and that's the way to give them the little amount of the originality they have but they can't use because they have uniforms. It's not like money or something like that but it is the ability to be your unique and original self. I think that you should consider to stop the uniforms in exchange for originality and with the originality...

Black History Month or any month celebrating a specific ethnic history only promotes more racism.

Finally, just so we both know what we are getting into, your first post or argument would be accept...

I believe that television does offer a window to violence, especially when they watch violent games. I have two grandkids ages 8-9, who used to watch some children's shows. I noticed that after they finish watching the show they run to their room and grab their toy guns, and start shooting at each other. In other occasions, they start hitting each other and fighting just like the show they just watched. I do firmly believe that some children's shows do more harm than good. I do not allow my gran...
