The Armenian Genocide Was By Definition a "Genocide"

Spedman
tahir.imanov

I have heard very mixed accounts of what happened during the event known as the Armenian Genocide. I myself am not an ethnic Armenian, but I love Armenian culture which has graciously been shared by one of my favorite rock bands, System of a Down. There seems to be a lot of controversy behind this event concerning what actually happened and whether or not it was Genocide. I believe that in definition it was indeed a Genocide. Genocide: the systematic and widespread extermination or attempted...

Feminism

I believe that Feminism is coming out of hand. At first it was a good cause and was for woman rights but now they are taking it too far. I believe feminism is the equality of woman but I also believe we've already got to that point. I think what some feminists don't understand is that some woman like being a stay at home mom and by them still pursuing it it makes them feel inferior. I've also met some feminist who say that they think that woman are superior and I do not think that is anywhere ne...

The minimum wage should not be raised to $15/hr for fast food workers

RoyLatham
TheHitchslap

Unions recently staged protests demanding that McDonald's in the U.S. should be required to pay workers a minimum of $15 per hour. An ABC News report provides some background on the issue [1. http://abcnews.go.com/ABC_Univision/News/fast-food-workers-demand-pay/story?id=20235304]. While McDonald's was the focus of the demonstrations, a law cannot target just one fast food company. If that were legal, other chains might get most of the business, McDonald's w...

Do you think women are still treated unequally?

NinjaD0lphin
cute_angel

Women are paid about 77 cents to every dollar a man makes. Women are also not commonly found in high power positions, especially in the government. For example, only about 20% of congress is female. This is not because there aren't enough very qualified women for the job. In my opinion as a man, I have found educated women to be much more rational than educated men. Women are objectified and dominated by men. What do you think?...

WesternGuy2

They limit rights Yes the good old constitution the foundation of america and this debate Some opponents claim that uniforms are not a fix-all for the problems that plague schools, but instead, violate a student's right to express themselves, as guaranteed by the First Amendment. In a school in california, 73% of the students claim that their first ammendment rights were violated. After they signed a pettition the school went back to the old ways. The case Tinker v. Des Moines decided that s...

There is a need for old age homes in this generation

prefdave
soumya_a_thomas

In this time and age, where money is the main aim for many people, parents who spend all their money and time to raise a child, are finally rejected by the very same child, and are dumped of at a pleasant looking 'Old Age Home' for the 'good' of their parents. Now for people looking at these homes from the outside, they look like heaven on earth, with anything you can ask for. But the parents who are sent there endure a feeling of pain that cannot be described- the pain of rejection. Why do we h...
