Many of the Srilanka Tamil People Who Temporarily got Settled in Various Country During their Own Country Problem are still in trouble.

High-speed rail should receive federal government subsidy in-place of current subsidies on highways

ConservativePolitico

My belief is that federal government subsidies on high-speed rail would benefit the United States greater than the continual subsidy of the current highway system. The first round is acceptance, the second is stating your argument, third round attempt to dispute claims made by the opponent in second round. I lowered the max number of characters to keep arguments concise. I look forward to a good debate, good luck....

Donald Trump

ajisthetruth
CosmoJarvis

Why did they elect him? The election is over. It's time to put the rhetoric aside and sift through what we know: Donald Trump won the election by a commanding margin. His victory is as legitimate as any previous presidents. The people of the United States elected him. They chose him. And the electorate is always right. Trump is a man with many, many serious flaws. Hillary Clinton, the only other real choice on the ballot, is also flawed. Both candidates exaggerated the other's flaws and t...

Obese people should go to prison

Cowtech
SuperDucky_101

I think that fat people should be put to prison. I think this because in prison they would be forced to loose the weight. They are also eating all the food in America and that should not be allowed. Obese people means over 300 pounds by choice. If you are 300 pounds and trying to loose weight, you are fine. But if you are over 300 pounds and doesn't try to loose the weight, you should be put in prison. That should be the new law for the United States: If you are 300 pounds or more and not trying...
