As we see news about the many mistreated children in the world, a question starts to arise: should we required to have a license to parent? There are many arguments to support this idea of parental licenses, and the ideally, this solution to the problem would solve many cases of brutality and ignorance. However, do we really want a world that controls our ability to raise a child, like driving a car or motorcycle? Few of the many reasons why people shouldn't be required to have a license to pare...

Should the government ban fortune-telling businesses?

Debater0000
Pest

Nowadays, there are many fortune-telling businesses, that operate for profit. Should they be banned? A friend of mine suggested to me that they should be banned, inspiring me to start this debate. Even though I'm not the king of person who believes in fortune-telling, I still think that such businesses should be approved. Restricting such businesses will lead to infringement of freedom of speech and deprivation of something to cling to for desperate or religious people. Through fortune-tell...

Beneficial to offer someone a job to get them off welfare (increase consumer spending?

I think anti-welfare activists should employ welfare recipients. I also think that antiwelfare congressmen should employ people to get them off the much demonized welfare system. Afterall, the Congress advocates for tax breaks yet doesn't demand concessions from corporations or millionaires to hire. I think there is a job to do for a minimum of $11.00 an hour: cleaning, labor, etc. I think it would benefit the homeless as well as struggling father who seek extra work. Why not hire someone to get...

Drugs are pretty fun, but even the most amazing experience on drugs just doesn't compare to a good romping. If you think drugs are a better experience, you must not be doing it right....
