If one is both homeless and unemployable, one should rob a bank.

Thanks to whoever accepts this debate. I will make this round no longer than it needs to be by providing some simple points, then drawing a conclusion from them. 1. Being homeless would suck compared to being rich. This is pretty obvious. Eating garbage vs. eating whatever you want. Freezing in winter vs. being comfortably warm. Using a cardboard box as a blanket vs. using a Hannah Montana bedspread... erm, I mean, a real manly bedspread with pictures of beer and stuff on it. And steak...

Marijuana Legalization

SuperPerfundo
Epicism

I think marijuana should be legalized. For the purposes of the debate, let's assume laws under legalization would make pot similar to alcohol (21 age limit, no driving under the influence, etc.) 1. Other substances Alcohol impairs you more, yet is legal. Cigarettes offer all of the same health concerns, but offer no significant benefit (high) and most cigarette smokers smoke more than marijuana users on a daily basis. Also, marijuana has been medically proven to be non-habit-forming, unlike...

Gay Marriage

As far as controvercial topics go, Gay marriage is one of the biggest ones, but it doesnt have to be. Why is gay marriage such a controvercial topic? Closed minded self-richeous people who are too stuck in their ways, they are the reason its such a controvercial topic. I'm not saying that everyone has to think that being a homosexual is right, or that everyone should be, but for goodness sake, why stop two people from having the right to marry eachother? "You cant get married because youre gay"....

War memorials do more harm than good.

Danielle
JustCallMeTarzan

Greetings to my opponent and welcome to Round 2 -- Good luck! For the purpose of this debate, a war memorial will be defined as a building, monument, statue or other edifice to celebrate a war or victory, or (predominating in modern times) to commemorate those who died or were injured in war (Source: Wikipedia). If my opponent disagrees with the definition, I ask that he provide another relavent to the resolution as soon as possible. So without further ado (or is it adieu?), let's begin!...

Affirmative Action is Right and Necessary

early american settlers were racist. they captured people in africa, forced them to work in america under ridiculous conditions, then freed them and left them homeless; many families were broken up to begin with, so a lot of households had no nuclear fmaily at its core. once freed, black people had a hard time finding work due to discrimination. many found blue collar jobs as time went on and endured harsh work conditions because they had no other choice. they worked for low wages; this caus...

The United States of America is the greatest country in the world.

Over the past several years I've been told by numerous people that the US is the greatest country in the world. However, I've never heard why. I don't know what's so great about us, but maybe you do. (Greatest - Highest in quality; Superior to others;)...

Sexual relations with animals should be allowed

pallkvaran
candice

Let me start by making it clear that this debate is not some sort of a sick joke. Sexual relations with animals have been a part of the human culture for a long time. Some nations allow their citizens to have sexual relations with specific animals, others do not. I´m not talking about underdeveloped countries in this context, examples of countries that allow this sort of behavior are Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Russia and Germany. I would never have sexual relation with other animal...

The user s0m31john is a pedophile

DucoNihilum
s0m31john

My opponent shows clear signs of being a pedophile which I will outline in my further arguments. My first, rather short, line of evidence will be his avatar (At the time of the creation of this opening argument) , a character known a pedo bear on the chans. It is a clear sign of pedophilia, as pedo bear is an example of an active pedophile bear, which regularly rapes 'lolis'....

Puppies should be tortured and killed.

TwinDragon

Puppies are cute. I like puppies. People like puppies. Rainbows like puppies too. The word puppies starts with a 'q'. I have seen a number of puppies, all of them have been cute. 2 + 2 = 7. * Under no circumstances will my arguments exceed the above list of arguments against the topic....
