Should The World Go Solar

DecayingFunim
Platinum78

I don't want anybody to think that I am trying to destroy the world, but there are some people out there who think solar energy is evil. I can almost guarantee you that they don't live in China or Mexico. If you think this is evil and I work for the government or claim something similar like the illuminati, please don't be on the con side. Going solar is something that many people are considering as a possibility. One company on Kickstarter, Solar Freakin Roadways, is trying to solve the ener...

Minimum Wage Should Not Be Raised

I will be arguing for a stable federal minimum wage in the United States. I personally believe that the minimum wage should be abolished altogether, as I believe in almost nonexistent government intervention in business. However, I am arguing that we should not increase the minimum wage any higher then it already is on a federal basis. This comes from the fact that Seattle, NYC, LA, and Chicago have all raised their minimum wages to an exorbitant amount, which will eventually end up in los...

Fast Food $15/hour Wages

treble_clef_hkd

So, lately fast food employees have been rioting for a $15/hour wage. I think this is ridiculous. First of all you flip burgers and make fries for a living. If you want something that pays higher, get your butt out there and find a job that does. Also, speaking as a 16-year old that is hopefully getting a job in the next few weeks (want McDonald's) I don't want a $15/hour job. If these wages are accepted, I would be making more than my mom does working at the public library. I'm a teenager in hi...

The "National Debt" is not a problem.

Deficit_Owl
ViceRegent

I will be arguing that the "national "debt" is not a problem at all. In fact, it's necessary, and attempts to lower the debt or "balance the budget" are completely misguided. I will lay out my points: * A government that can print its own dollars and doesn't peg their currency cannot run out of dollars. Of course, the government can't just create 22 trillion dollars from thin air, resource constraints exist. However, we are nowhere near full output. * The "national debt" is a silly political l...
