In order to attempt to understand his perspective, I made several allusions to physical reality, whether it be the government surreptitiou...

Homosexuality is Morally Wrong, Therefore Unjust, Gay Marriage must therefore be illegal.

Rhetorician
gt4o2007

Homosexuality is morally wrong, and therefore unjust. I am compelled against my beliefs, to accept that homosexuality is a very personal matter, one which may bring with it the love, adornment, and care of one man to another or one woman to another. In these respects, homosexuality is a good thing, it encourages love, adornment, caring, and even acceptance. It is also true that we should learn to accept all people, no matter their sexuality, race, age, gender, or otherwise. All people should...

Employers Using Criminal Records as Background Checks

It is hard enough in today's world to live without having one indiscretion you had at the ripe old age of let's say twenty years follow you and hunt you down. After you've committed your CHUMP crime, a Driving While Impaired, Possession of a Controlled Substance (namely marijuana), Drinking Under Age, and an array of other NON-VIOLENT crimes, you grow up. As a part of the "grown up" experience you consider that you need a job...you begin filling out online applications, you walk into the variety...

The United States ought to submit to the jurisdiction of an international court designed to prosecut

behairry2981
Metz

I affirm the resolution resolved: The United States ought to submit to the jurisdiction of an international court designed to prosecute crimes against humanity. Now some definitions: Webster-dictionary defines ought as: to be bound in duty or by moral obligation. Merriam-Webster defines to submit as: to yield oneself to the authority or will of another. The term crimes against humanity has come to mean anything atrocious committed on a large scale. This is not, however, the original meanin...

Awhile back I found myself engaged in this debate on the topic of a female president, shown here:http://www.debate.org/debates/Women-for-president/1/Now from my perspective, I think it should be clear to anyone with half a brain that my arguments were demonstrab...
