Border Fence


People suggest putting up a border fence to stop illegal immigration from Mexico where it mainly is such as my opponent I have challenged, Kylar. Am I against illegal immigration, mainly yes, but a fence won't do. I would say more, but I will wait for my opponent to accept Rules: 1. No plagiarism. 2. Maintain appropriate conduct. 3. Pro must prove a border fence should be put up at the US-Mexican border. 4. Con must prove a border fence should not be put up at the US-Mexican border Round...

Israel is repressing the Palestinians


A big topic in today's news is Israel and its position in Palestine. There is especially an expanding amount of controversy over the fairly recent attack on Gaza. I believe that Israel is perfectly in its right to do this, as it needs to defend itself in any way possible from Islamic terrorism, and letting people fire missiles at them (like Gaza did) does not exactly send the correct message, even if they do not cause a good deal of harm. Israel is in a constant need to defend itself, as shown b...

TT2 Expert Final: U.S. militia groups pose a greater threat to our national security than do FTOs


First and foremost, I'd like to congratulate bsh1 on making it this far in the tournament.

Abortion is wrong


Life starts at conception. This is the definition given in any respectable medical textbook. "To declare a beginning of life at any point after the fusing of a wife"s egg and a husband"s contribution is irrational and an exercise in sophistic chicanery. Only machines such as clocks and cars come into existence part by part. Living beings come into existence all at once and gradually unfold their world of innate potential. A living human person begins to exist at the moment of conception, even th...

On balance, a ban on civilian firearm ownership would be beneficial to the United States


DK and I have been planning to do this debate for a couple weeks now.

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...
