Marijuana legalization

No acceptance, lets just go. Legalizing would make America's drug problem spiral out of control. Marijuana should not be legalized because there is already a weed drug problem in the US. Who is to say that said person would not pick up a bat and beat someone to death due to their impaired mental state? Marijuana impairs judgement on all levels. Marijuana is known to kill brain cells, smoking weed is a disturbing trend. Young people need to keep their minds sharp. There are far too ma...

Gay Marriage

I think that gay people should be allowed to get married. I mean why not? They are no different than us.. They haven't chosen to be gay. So many people say they choose to be gay. Some people take their lives because they don't want to be gay. Think for a minute about this.. Did you ever just choose to be straight? Or were you born like that? People can't help who they love, and they shouldn't be punished or feel downgraded. They are the same as us. They are just humans. Everyone's different. If...

man loves woman out of compulsion, not out of necessity

juras
Truth_seeker

hello! the statement is man loves woman out of compulsion and not out of necessity. i stand firmly for the motion. love developed among man and woman for the sake of their offspring. man and woman needed to come together and well have sex. but just because a man and a woman reproduces doesn't mean that they love each other. it is a social and biological compulsion borne out of concern of offspring....

Welfare

Jelera

First round is to accept and arguments. Second round is rebuttals and conclusion. Here's my stand, all you have to do is argue against it: I believe that the current welfare system should be abolished. It's not helping anyone, not the poor, not the taxpayers and not society. The taxpayers are stuck picking up the tab for a flawed system. Society's suffers in that our churches, schools, parks, and other programs are shoved to the side and ignored. Instead of the money to improve these thin...
