Snipers are cowards

warren42

This debate was inspired by director Michael Moore's tweet calling snipers cowards who will shoot you in the back. *Note, the "shoot you in the back" part is not a part of the resolution, but rather used to provide some more context. The full resolution is "Snipers are cowards."* http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2916171/They-cowards-not-heroes-Michael-Moore-slams-military-assassins-Oscar-tipped-movie-American-Sniper-hits-theaters.html If you want to take Pro and debate me, please le...

PlayStation 4's are better than XBOX ones because pretty much the only improvement about the XBOX ONE is how easier it is to connect it to a TV. A PlayStation 4 has better graphics and is easier to manoeuvre the home screen....

Is a fetus human?

Shoeshine

I recently began a debate with a colleague whether abortion should be legalized or not. We both agreed that the underlying question of the whole argument was if the fetus was a human or something else entirely. If the fetus is not a human then we should encourage abortion and allow persons to terminate the objects inside them at will with no consequence or restriction. However, if the fetus is a human then there should be restrictions. Please do not stray from the issue at hand and use facts and...

Should Immigrants pay a fee percentage, on any money sent out of this country.

Lookingatissues
Beagle_hugs

immigrants have long looked at America as a country where they could come and seek work to better themselves and their families. But for immigrants to only benefit themselves at the expense of the citizens who have to provide benefits to them such as schooling, housing, law enforcement, medical, is a cost that immigrants should contribute to assist in paying for that they take advantage of. There is a cost levied on Americans who wish to live here , shouldn't those who come across our borders al...

Models of Climate Change and weather forcasts are equally wrong, most often.

Max.Wallace
Fredemanze

Climate change is a religion, as we will not be alive to see the truth of the predictions. Weather forecasts are often wrong, and the science of the immediate future of a local climate should be more easily predictable. Climate change will happen, the direction, warming or cooling, is unpredictable. The true path of a storm is unpredictable. Diblasio is a fear monger along the lines of his political god, Gore. The first round is for your retort....

Concealed Carry on College Campuses

DeeJay0018
Beginner

Qualified students should be allowed to carry concealed weapons while on a college campus. There is no good reason to deny capable students with permits the right that they are afforded everywhere else. The issue is about student safety. Needless crimes happen everyday because students are not allowed to defend themselves in the most effective way: with a gun. According to the Department of Education, 25% of crimes that happen on college campuses are rapes and 39% are assaults. These numbers wou...

Social Media Should Be Banned For Children Under The Age Of 18

MCB2700
jenkinsm

Social media shouldn't be banned for children under the age of 18 because social media give children/teens a chance to gain technology skills and gives children/teens a chance to collaborate with friends online with social media. Social media can give children/teens social skills if the child and/or teen has trouble with face to face communication skills. Social media can also give a chance to show achievements and awards that he or she has earned during their lifetime. Social media can also giv...
