Round 1 will only be for acceptance. Round 2 will start the actual debate. Since it is a current event, it should be very interesting to examine it. Thank you!...

Edward Snowden showed us what was by law our right to know. Revealing the secrets that the government has been breaking laws to provide more security which makes little sense to me because wouldn't that statement cancel out? security is trust and trust should be private as the individual allows it (as an example "you tell your friend a secret, that secret should be private, and your friend keeps it a secret, but a criminal (this example of a criminal personifying the government is the only examp...

I believe that vampires are real because if vampires weren't real at one point how would they even get the idea. People just don't get and idea from mid air they have to see something, for example somebody probably saw someone suck someone else s blood and named the blood sucker a vampire and that is what i think. I don't care what other people think i care about what me my self and I think....

Dog Fighting

Annacat
In_Human_Form

Dog fighting is a disgusting act where people throw dogs, usually pit bulls and other muscular dogs, into a pit where they are forced to fight to death or near death. The dogs are abused, starved and even killed. Also other crimes are involved in dog fighting like, drugs, illegal gambling, alcohol and even murder. Some children are even exposed to this!! This is a torturous "sport" and I don't see how anyone could do this to a living creature....
