Should gay marriage be legalized in all fifty states?

em2000
joceyjoce1212

Nobody chooses their sexual orientation, so why make their life harder? They just want the same thing that you want, to be happy. I believe that all people whether they are gay, or lesbian, or bisexual, they should all be able to marry whom ever they fall in love with....

In defense of evil part 1: The Unabomber was justified in his actions.

Wylted
G131994

Definitions; Justified: to prove or show to be just, right, or reasonable http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/justify The word reasonable is highly subjective so for the purposes of this debate , I will be arguing that the Unabomber was just or right. When I say the Unabomber's actions I'm specifically referring to the ones that made headlines before his real name was known by the public. If you don't qualify to accept this tournament but can show you will be a worthy oppon...

Should gay & lesbian marriages be legalized in India?

BiggBoss
Kc1999

Today India is a powerful country in various fields, but still there are various issues related to same sex marriages. Recently, the Supreme Court of India ruled homosexuality to be a criminal offence . MY CASE :- Gay or a lesbian does not change the fact that they are human and they have equal rights too. though, sometimes it may be shocking for one to meet such a personality at first, but later it will subside and we will get used to it. we must not look down upon people such because they...

Devyani Khobragade: US was wrong, but India is being immature !!

BiggBoss
NiqashMotawadi3

Devyani Khobragade treated her houseworker as a wage slave and expected to get away with it. That is ridiculous, as is her lawyer's excuse that she can't afford to pay the minimum wage ($1600/month). if you can't pay for the child, don't have one. The US treatment of her is ridiculous as well. She is a diplomat and deserves a few extra perks, being detained diplomatically and not having strip searches for a crime that wouldn't require it. If she were caught smuggling something, a cavity searc...

paigeb
Brock_Meyer

Child labor should be illegal on tobacco for many reasons. Tobacco farms are dangerous and there are no many agriculture laws taking precautions to protect young people from getting injured or preventing fatal accidents. The laws vary state by state, and children as young as 6 could work on tobacco farms, as long as it does not interfere with education. Hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries happen annually because children are not old enough. This is just with the machinery. Working on to...
