Houston is the 2nd murder capital in the nation. And Fort Walton Beach is a relatively quiet town on the coast. So it's really Polluted city(Houston) VS. Beautiful Coastline(Fort Walton Beach).
proaz

Con

Houston is one of the major cities in the US. It is prospering greatly, especially in education. Houston has been giving much support on education, thus increasing its economy. A city cannot be better than another city just because it has a cleaner environment and is a popular tourist attraction

Okay....... but ummmmmm the school I'm going to now has dropped in how it's contending with rival schools gradewise. And it happens to be #1 in Alief School District!!!!! So how can we be getting better if the #1 school in a district is sinking fast!?!?!?!?! Yeah and all of that economic advancement is killing our enviroment!!!!! Because as the economy is increasing, more people are moving over here. Thus, Houston + More People = More pollution.
Fort Walton Beach increases its economy without polluting anything and it's schools remain #1 to it's surrounding schools.......
Thanks for excepting this debate!!!!!!!!

Con

Houston's schools have much more academic success than Florida's schools. Stop comparing your school to the school's around it, compare it to Houston's schools.

Also, are you saying that having a better economy is bad? That's impossible.

If Houston was gone, than it would have worse impact on US than if Walton Beach was gone.

if you dont mind me asking what gives you the right to talk about Fort Walton Beach and houston; because I've lived in both places. And i have to say that the people are nicer in FWB, FWB isnt the 2nd murder capitol in the nation, and all i was stating was that houston is already over building as it is. the more people come to live here the more we have to build and that equals to more pollution......

However, Houston also has important resources that Florida doesnt have. Houston is one of the major oil sources and without it, oil taxes increase.

Just because you lived in a place, doesn't mean you know everybody. There are millions of people living in Houston and I don't think you met everybody and know them very well. You can't just say that people are much nicer somewhere else. People may have different opinions on who they think are nice. You can't say that a city is better than another city because 'you' think people are nicer.

Houston is also one of the major headquarters for Texas Instruments. They have been contributing a large portion to education. However, Walton Beach is just a tourist attraction.

I find your statements offensive, and as such, they are reported.

Have a nice day!

You're probably one of those ginger Scotties that like to think they can better themselves by screwing with others.

And you give Americans an even worse name than they already have in the eyes of the world. I seriously doubt that you're 44 years old from the way you type.
