should waitresses/waiters get paid based on how they use their manners vs. group pay?


I think they should because if they are really well and some one else is horrible and it is a group pay then they are both not getting what they deserve. one person is getting more the other is getting less which is not fair making it to were others will think you can do nothing and get money and everyone would stop working nothing would get done and there would be no more employees no more jobs no more work no more paychecks no more civilized store runs a rise in theft and no way this is ok.......

Black People Need To Grow Up And Join The Rest Of Society


Today Black people don"t wish to work hard they would rather act like victims instead of sticking to their work and doing it well.

Racial privilege does not exist, economic privilege definitely does though. I"m white, my parents were drug addict alcoholics who beat me, I was lucky to be...

And if the school system is aware of such bullying and do not do anything about this, then the school officials should be fired and fined. Teachers are not only responsible in educating our kids but they are also responsible that these kids are in a safe environment when attending scho...

We should not stop people from committing suicide.


From a scientific standpoint, the main reason we should not try and stop people from committing suicide, is because mental illnesses are often hereditary. The ultimate goal for all animals, (humans included) is reproduction. So, if a human with mental illness succeeds as a human being, and they reproduce, then that offspring is weaker, because of the mental illness. Suicide is the closest thing humans have to natural selection. If someone has a chemical imbalance, they have an imperfect brain, a...

PrefaceI thank Zarroette for this debate. I hope she agrees to accept, and I look forward to a cordial, engaging exchange of views.

Is Pre-Emptive Warfare Morally Justified?


Hungarian mathematician Paul Erdos once said, "Suppose aliens invade the earth and threaten to obliterate it in a year's time unless human beings can find the Ramsey number for red five and blue five. We could marshal the world's best minds and fastest computers, and, within a year, we could probably calculate the value. If the aliens demanded the Ramsey number for red six and blue six, however, we would have no choice but to launch a pre-emptive attack." In ties with this, I am resolved that pr...
