Wylted

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?...

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...
