MyDinosaurHands

The Black Sea peninsula of Crimea was transferred from the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic on February 19, 1954. Prior to that date the peninsula had been under Russian control and cultural influence since 1783 where it - as a Khaganate - was conquered by the Russian Empire. This time period lead to a peninsula with an ethnic majority of Russians. As a matter of fact, the first and only census of the Russian Empire occurred in 1897 and t...

The Federal Reserve is Ruining America

ResponsiblyIrresponsible

Sources : THE CONSTITUTION OF OUR COUNTRY" By Frank A. Rexford -- 1924 I believe the federal reserve system is destroying America, and has been since it's birth. "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies . . . If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] . . . will deprive the people of all pr...

DK and I have been planning to do this debate for a couple weeks now. Standard debate rules apply; first round for acceptance, no new arguments in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc. I doubt any of that will be a problem, here. A quick note on the resolution-- the debate will NOT be revolving around the implementation of a gun ban; it will be about whether or not the effects of a gun ban which has already been implemented are positive. I look forward to an excellent debate :D...

Abortion is the ultimate child abuse. A child is a Human, not a choice. If you want to give your child a better life than what you think or want to give them, adoption is ALWAYS a choice. The embryo or fetus may not be fully developed, but at 18 days, the heartbeat begins beating, at 30 days, blood begins flowing through their veins , at 8 weeks, all organs are functioning, at 9 weeks the baby has fingerprints, at 10 weeks the baby can feel pain, at 12 weeks the baby can smile. For you, this ma...

I've invited philochristos to this debate. I look forward to our exchange. This debate is inspired by another currently-running debate about whether Congress should pass the Life at Conception Act. The debate can be found here: http://www.debate.org/debate/69932/ And the text of the bill can be found here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/house-bill/1091/text I am intrigued by a related question not being discussed in that debate. The proponents of the bill argue that the...
