Should McDonald's go out of business

Drago31
SJM

I believe that McDonald should go out of business! I have 3 reasons why: 1. Aggressive targeting of kids through McDonald's toys and marketing 2. Between 1995 and 2000, McDonald's monopoly sweepstakes was rigged, making it nigh impossible to win prizes. 3. McDonald's dismal wages contribute to a poverty rate of 16.7% among United States fast food workers. EVIDENCE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UocgrWQhNOM Are you still lovin' it?...

Does Socialism Work?

Socialism has been proven to NOT WORK. It's sounds nice and cuddly but it isn't. Socialism is in direct opposition to the constitutional republic that is the United States. Socialism creates a dysfunctional society as well. Bernie Sanders always kept bringing up Denmark and how well Denmark was doing with socialism. Well guess what Bernie, and all you other tree huggers, Denmark has a population of 5 million, the US has 300 million. This is important because in a small community like Denmark, pe...

The Wage Gap is Fake

tkentk
kasmic

As an avid surfer of the webs, I inevitably come across feminist blogs and other such sites claiming that there is an unfair wage gap between men and women in the United States. It is my belief, after some research, that this claim is untrue. To start off with, discrimination in salary in a working environment has been illegal since 1963. If you believe that your gender is causing your employer to pay you more or less, you can sue them in court and you will win. Period. Besides that, th...

Doctors should be paid more than footballers.

Yes they should. Doctors save lives. Save lives. How much can you buy life for? Footballers entertain people for money and get paid more than doctors. Why is this? They are famous. I'm a football fan, but don't you think its a little bit unfair? Thousands of people die everyday, millions of tears are shed everyday but this number could decrease with doctors. If we pay them more they will work more! More lives saved already. Nobody cries when their football team looses. That's because footba...

Should Abortion be illegal?

NoorH606
Sgt4Liberty

The debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option continues to divide Americans long after the US Supreme Court's 7-2 decision in Roe v. Wade declared the procedure a "fundamental right" on Jan. 22, 1973. I believe abortion should continue on to be legal because as the independence state we are free we all have freedom some people use that freedom has an excuse or to made bad choices but we have no right to fight or break the law. I really believe that abortion is wrong but it's n...
