Nik
Angrypants66

Professor David Nutt recently recommended that Ecstasy should be downgraded from a class A to a class B drug. I am FOR this. And I shall allow my opponent to start the argument. I am not arguing that ecstasy should be legalised and that its not harmful....

Can belive that someone would call 911 just get on Tv!!!! It is so stupid that people would do that!!! the thing is that the story about the 9 year old boy in the balloon.

Bullying

My argument is against bullying because it can cause people to kill them selves and i have friends that have tried to kill them selves. Most people are afraid to stand up to bullies because they have been bullied so much that they think its ok or because they don't want to be bullied. Well i have been and still am being bullied. I look at the kids that bully me and i smile because nothing they can do will hurt my SPIRIT no matter what even if they kill me i still have my SPIRIT. I want to hear y...

I believe abortion is wrong because abortion is not some women got raped or something and doesn't want to be reminded of it for nine months most of the time it is some one got pregnant and did not want to be so they kill the child for their mistake I wish a good debate to my opponent but I just don't see how you can agree with killing a child and taking it from its life just because the parents don't want it they are not disposable and abortion is not birth control and even if a women is raped i...

I think for the job that they do enlisted soldiers deserve more pay.

I am debating enlisted soldiers only because I do not know enough about officers and their pay scale. Also I am not debating that they signed up for it , so that is the pay they deserve. I do not think that enlisted soldiers get enough pay for the sacrifices they make. We need an army and we need soldiers. They protect our country. Soldiers must follow all orders no matter what. Soldiers have to miss holidays, bdays, births of their children, anniversaries, graduations, weddings, etc. They have...

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...

war in Iraq

I_am_always_right
midnightblue164

here is my thing First. i think the whole reason why we went to war was because of 9/11 which is totally wrong. #1 steel which was in the towers can not be melted by fire. #2 there is no proof that it is exactly terrorists that did it Second. we attacked them Third. a republican is in the white house. Fourth. it is none of our business just because A as in 1 guy was not being so nice in Iraq does not mean that we should go to war against people who #1 did not say, "come and k...
