There is a conflict of interest when dentists advise on tooth care.

HalakMushareff

ATTENTION: -=This debate is intended for aphistis from StudentDoctor.net I would politely ask no one else to accept this for at least a month, thank you.=- While obviously an expert in a given subject is more likely to be qualified to speak on issues relating to that subject, there still exists a clear conflict of interest when those experts fiscally profit off of situations that could arise from faulty or missing advise on that subject. Dentists being a clear example. That this confl...

DeathPenalty

com211ncsu
sagardin

I am against the use of the death penalty in the US court system. My main reasoning behind this political position is the high cost required of tax payers to keep an inmate in jail on death row. The average cost to keep a prisoner in jail on death row for one year is $44,000. This amount of money increases every year that the prisoner is in the prison system, which adds up over time for taxpayers....

Agricultural Taxation

johngriswald
LunaEques

I Affirm that Agricultural, because of its negative environmental impact due to greenhouse gases and other forms of pollution it produces is a negative externality. Thus by economic principles, Agriculture should be taxed in the amount of money that would clean up the amount of pollution it produces, or in the amount that would subsidize a positive externality that removes the pollution agriculture produces. Given: In this debate the emittance of greenhouse gases and other forms of pollution...

Does World of Warcraft truly increase the number of virgins in the 18-30 age range?

No_Promises
Nails

It has been years since i've played but i believe it has always been an unfair assumption that World of Warcraft ritualistically produces virgins. ----------Contentions----------- 1) My view on this moot has led me to believe that it is not actually the game that is increasing the number of virgins aged 18-30 but, in fact, it is the people who have the characteristics that would be found in those of of a "post-pubescent virgin" are actually drawn to this type of game. They require an outle...

It's time to stop depraved madmen from breeding two-headed human freaks at the taxpayers' expense

brian_eggleston
Bricheze

Evil, calculating Mike Pedance, an unemployed nuisance caller, has persuaded his partner Lisa Chamberlain, also unemployed, to give birth to a hideously deformed human monstrosity and he wants the taxpayer to foot the bill. This benefit-scrounging former telesales agent is deliberately planning to bring a baby with two heads into the world, even though the doctors at the wicked couple's government-funded hospital advised them to terminate the pregnancy. They told sinister-looking Pedance a...

Jack Bauer would take Bruce Wayne in a bare-knuckle fist fight.

sgt.peppers
Logical-Master

The resolution states that Jack Bauer would take Bruce Wayne in a bare-knuckle fist fight. This implies that Bruce couldn't use his batman suit/weaponry. Jack is much more used to pressure than Bruce. To start off, I will bring up the fact that Jack Bauer has greater motivation. The entire country rests upon his shoulders, while Bruce Wayne has one corrupt city he's defending. The bigger burden upon Jack's shoulder would force him to fight harder and...
