Should stores be closed on Sundays to promote stronger family values (or any values in general) ? Round 1: Accept and initial statement(s) 2: Rebut 3: closing statement Lets have fun :) Round 1: I believe stores should NOT be closed on Sundays. In fact, I believe that stores should not be closed any day of the week (unless the individual store owner deems necessary for the sake of the business).

We don't have the right to say "oh cyclists should be banned" and stuff like that because if anything, we as people in cars are causing most of the catastrophe. The show "Today Tonight" on the seven network of Australia recently did a news story about the relationship between cyclists and cars and they took the story to police and the...

I insist the other individual go first. I speak of slavery in terms of not only chattel slavery, but also in terms of enslaved indivduals as in books such as 1984 and Brave New World, where they are enslaved by the government societally....

voxprojectus

A female pope or arguments on how men are horrible and no-good cheaters and we are perverted rapists out to get innocent damsels. We degrade women because of our porn habits even though women watch it too. The only problems women have these days are that there isn't many women in politics calling the shots. I watched a video on youtube...
