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...

Dropping the atom bomb on Hiroshima/Nagasaki.

Mimzee
JustCallMeTarzan

I think it was totally unecassary to drop the atom bomb on Japan as they were about to surrender anyway and it killed so many people, I also believe that America didn't have full knowledge of the atom bomb, so it was a case of 'I've found something that we can throw at them.' Of course Japan was not totally innocent, as they commited some henious crimes (Pearl Harbour) and I'm not going to argue that Japan was right when it so clearly wasn't (siding with Hitler) but I did not think it was a good...

Which Gives You Internet Access Even If The Wii's Not On. It Will Update The Wii For You. You Can Upload Pictures And Let You Go Online With Various Games. The PS3 However Does Have Many More Games With Internet Access To Play Online. The conso...

U.S. army is the most powerful army in the world

Kazybek
Sketchy

There is no place in the world, which can't be attacked by U.S. army. They also have one of the best training systems in the world. There is no scenario that has not been addressed. Moreover, U.S. military units can coordinate their actions with each other. So they are really effective. The United States defense budget is the largest in the world. In fiscal year 2010, the Department of Defense has a base budget of $533.8 billion. Therefore U.S. army has the latest weapons such as fifth-generatio...
