This one is so easy I would have to try hard to lose it. Someday people will study the Age of Corruption when individuals could be elected to public office and accept bribes at will, and this being common knowledge and nothing being done about it. Corporations act as people, and have all the rights people have, except holding public office, which in fact it may be possible under current law if a corporation can meet age and residency requirements in order to to register to vote. Those junk...

I would like to debate in LD format. Thanks! "Since the governments are in the pockets of businesses, who's going to control this most powerful institution? Business is more powerful than politics, and it's more powerful than religion. So it's going to have to be the vigilante consumer." It is because I agree with Anita Roddick that I affirm the resolved, vigilantism is justified when the government has failed to enforce the law. For clarity I offer the following definitions: Vigilantism:...

No money for education

InfraRedEd
Mickeyrocks

Just keep the buildings maintained and let the people use them and manage their use. If they want to just play bingo that is just fine. Why don't the universities cancal classes and just have $port$ since it is what they have done anyway by cutting off funding and letting Monsanto tell Berkeley to fire a prof who showed that there might be adverse effects to GE. Big business is telling us what to teach and ruining any chance of getting an education. We need to free education and give it back to...

Zoos are not out-dated and are necessary for animal conservation

mr.cots

Animal conservation has become a hot topic more recently between scientists, the media and the public. There are huge debates about whether animal conservation is necessary and the advantages and disadvantages of in situ and ex situ conservation. A main concern is ex situ conservation (i.e. zoological parks). Many people see zoos as out-dated and cruel. Exotic wild animals are kept in man-made enclosures under unnatural environmental and social conditions and surplus animals are usually eutha...

The PS3 However Does Have Many More Games With Internet Access To Play Online. The conso...

The Death Penalty

Hunton711
Starpad

In the year 1993 alone, over 18,000 people were arrested for murder in the United States. Yet, in the past twenty years, there have been less than 300 executions. Today there are over 2,500 murderers on "death row", but less than fifty of them will be executed this year. That's 15,000 to 20,000 murders per year with less than fifty executions! Although eighty percent of Americans still favor the death penalty, many are beginning to have second thoughts as the liberal establishment marches ahead...
