paddling in schools

kimmi
Diirez

I say yes that students should to get paddled in school because it is the best thing to do when a child does something bad so they should get punished for what they did wrong and 35% of people say that is the right thing to do and only 19 states still paddle their students...

African American Deaths in the United States in 2014-2015

The deaths of Michael Brown and that one other guy have saddened America deeply. (At least one person in America.) It's not fair that police have to kill innocent people. Police are on this Earth and created by god to protect us, not kill us....

is snowden a hero?

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...

Abortion...

Ms.Opinionated
Nahte42

If people are so against the death penalty and killing animals...why is it right to kill an unborn child? No you haven't see the baby but if your pregnant it's a HUMAN CHILD!!!! Why kill an innocent thing and think that's perfectly fine when we are so against killing animals and etc...I'm sorry the only one way for me to even possibly CONSIDER (not saying yes) would be if someone was raped that's it. So tell me why it's ok to kill a little baby?...

are vampires real

T-Fame585
Piccini

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....

An Outside Intruder Did Not Kill JonBenet Ramsey

ShabShoral
warren42

This debate is for BSH's tournament. I will be defending the idea that an outside intruder (anyone other than the parents or brother of the victim) did NOT kill JonBenet Ramsey. As such, I assume the full BOP. I must prove, beyond a REASONABLE doubt, that one of JonBenet's mother, father, and brother was responsible for her death. Standard format....

Should we track down former Nazis?

jenkinsm
Sandra888

I understand what these people did. World war 2 had ended in 1945. That was 70 years ago. A couple hundred years ago we killed thousands of American Indians because we invaded their land and put them to work. The people that did it are still called heroes today. No one would have hunted them down if they were alive. These people were just following their gut. Some of them were good people as well. They snuck bread to dying children or were doctors in the infirmaries. They helped people. All the...
