This is a redo of a debate which wasn't finished due to schedule conflicts. I apologize for having waited too long to reissue the debate but I haven't had access to my laptop. As agreed we will be copying and pasting our previous arguments until we come to the new round. I once again wish my opponent luck!...

Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito are innocent of the murder of Meredith Kercher

First, let me start out by saying that the murder of Meredith Kercher is truly appalling. My heart goes out to her friends and family. In the spirit of justice for Meredith, I think we would all agree that ensuring that the appropriate parties are held to account for what he/she/they have done. While none of us truly know what happened that night barring being a physical witness or somehow omniscient, I believe that the evidence presented by the prosecutor is faulty and the atmo...

Can Sex Offenders Be Hot?

jar2187

I was reading a Houston Press article entitled “10 Hottest Women on the Texas Sex Offenders list”. I was not impressed. But by far, they each were much better looking than most of the more burly women that they love to parade on the news. It is as if the news love to exploit our general notions of “attractiveness” by associating them with horribly despicable crimes. It is as if the news is trying to tell us, or at least subliminally persuade us, to think that the una...

Wikileaks

Scyrone

Wikileaks should be classified as a terrorist organization bent on the downfall of the United States of America. This will be the Pf debate style. Contention- Wikileaks should be shut down because it is a terrorist organization with only one goal in mind and that is to destroy the United States of America.The latest breed of anarchist is not a protester who takes to the streets, Molotov cocktail in hand. His weapon of choice is the laptop and his battleground the Internet, which he uses to s...

Wikileaks

Danielle
Xenith967

There's been a lot of controversy over Wikileaks: an international media non-profit organization that publishes submissions of otherwise unavailable documents from anonymous news sources and leaks [1]. Recently Wikileaks has come under fire for releasing controversial material, such as classified videos and documents from the U.S. military, and evidence of politicians acting less than scrupulous, even to the point of having enough evidence to possibly warrant resignation for wrong-doing [2]....

Should their be a death penalty

Kingjames
BillBonJovi

No their should not. Their are many people out there who have done very little crimes like speeding or parked in a wrong spot, does that mean they deserve a death penalty. They are still nice people, they should not be punished that harshily. Many celebrities today have done way worse things than that like drug possesion, gun possession, or attempted suicide, those crimes should lead those people to death penalty so no I dont believe in a death penalty...

Fox news

Fox news is the most biased, manipulative and corrupted news channel out there. Matter in fact, FNC has such a bad reputation that even FAIR (Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting) and Media Matters has deemed them to be the most biased name in news. http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=1067 The president of the FNC is none other than Roger Ailes who severed as a political consultant for man republican candidates during the 1960's, 70's, and 80's including Richard M. Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. Roger...

BP should be forced to pay all reparations

thatguy15
Animalwiz

Resolved: The United States government should force BP to pay all reparations related to the deep water horizon oil spill. I'd like to request that the final round in this debate be used as a summary round instead of a rebuttal round. Thank you. I affirm the resolution for 2 main reasons. The first is that BP allowed the deep water horizon disaster to occur and that they could have stopped it, but didn't. the second is that because they caused the disaster, they should be forced to stop the...
