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...

Resolved: that the possession of nuclear weapons is immoral. I stand strongly affirmative on this issue. I would like to begin by defining a few terms defined by Webster's dictionary the first being nuclear weapons: being a weapon whose destructive power derives from an uncontrolled nuclear reaction. The next being immoral: not moral; broadly: conflicting with generally or traditionally held moral principles. I will be basing my debate today on the value of the sanctity of life. The value debate...

FNC (Fox News) showed Obama's address to Congress about his supposed health care plan

I have heard many uninformed liberals claim that FNC [1] did not show Obama's address to Congress that was supposed to be regarding his health care plan. This is a blatant lie. I would like anybody who believes that FNC didn't cover it to accept this debate and show that they didn't. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUiPV2YHVco [1] http://www.foxnews.com/...

I am just a man that knows where he lives, knows where he sleeps, and who knows what he eats. As a matter of fact, I'm looking at him now. He looks so peaceful as he sleeps. If I had a camera, I would take a picture....

Miley Cyrus is growing up fast! As recent rumors tell that the star just got herself a part in the "Sex and the City" movie sequel. The 16-year-old will reportedly be filming with the leading ladies that include Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Kim Cattrall, and Cynthia Nixon. This will be a role unlike any other Miley has done, giving everyone the chance to see what she can do. "Miley sees this as a transition from teen stardom to more adult roles," said one source. And ho...

This was going to be a great idea for for about a week but instead they had to at another 2 million dollars to it. Dealers are starting to say that people are so post to take back their cars. I found this on this web site http://uaddit.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=1205 Dealerships give customers the program's $4,500 trade-in rebates up front, then must file paperwork with the federal government to be reimbursed by stimulus dollars. Cosignatory says her dealership has not gotten any o...

We strongly affirm today's resolution: Resolved: That, on balance, the rise of Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) has had a positive impact on the United States. For clarity, the following words are defined. "Has had" is in the past tense; therefore any impacts in this round must already have happened. According to the University of Michigan, the rise of BRIC began in the 21st century, so any impacts in this round must have happened between the year 2000 and now. The resolution propo...

This House Would Recognize 'The Pirate Bay' As Wrongly Convicted.

In case you have not heard the news; http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/18/business/global/18pirate.html Today we find ourselves at a crossroads, both marred by fog, spooky trees and werewolves and whatnot. One road involves criminalizing file sharing and persecuting everybody who participates in it, leading to never ending witch hunt. The other path would be that of legalization. It would be a path in which we work with the entertainment industry to find a new way in which they may remain compe...
