Pitbulls being outlawed in cities.


Pitbulls can be loving and caring animals, like any dog. If we ban them what stops us from banning the next breed, that could potentially hurt us? Isn't everything in life dangerous? Look around we ban what we find dangerous, but couldn't the air we breathe be dubbed dangerous? I know 5 beautiful pitbulls. All live together, and none have attacked each other or me. I am interested to hear what you have to say. Don't ban what was created for a reason. Thank you....

Should the nazi data collected in the holocaust be used?


Millions of people died in the name of what they called science yet these expiriments were unlawful, unethical and unreasonable. Because these expiriments weren't based on scientific hypothesis and theories formed over time most people call them biased basically because they were racially motivated. I strongly agree, explained "Nazi Concentration Camp science is often branded as bad science. First, it is doubtful that physiological responses of the tortured and maimed vi...

Resolved: In the United States, the principle of jury nullification is a just check on government


This is a re-do. Terms have been agreed upon. I will just start with arguments since we're behind in the Zaradi Tournament. Premise I: What is Jury Nullification? Jury nullification occurs when a jury votes not guilty in a trial when they believe the evidence is—beyond a shadow of a doubt—proving the defendant’s guilt. This occurs when a jury member either believes the law is unjust or the law...

Jade Helm 15


Jade Helm 15 is a Military excersice wherein the military "takes over" Texas, New Mexico, part of California and some other areas, they are also doing a similar excersice in Canada. All this Summer. Many real cities will be swarmed with real military "learning" to take them over. I think this is awful. I think if the military is practicing something it means they intend to do it for real once they hone their skills, and meanwhile it's terrifying. We have a right not to be terrified by our ow...

should museums be free


I think that museums should be free for young people. They give young people the opportunity to not only enjoy arts but also learn value of culture. Generally, In Japan, most students learn various cultures by only reading textbook at school. However, it's very important for them to understand cultures "directly". By appreciating arts directly, it's possible for students to get something that textbook can't give them. For that reason, I agree that museums should be free....
