It looks like I have gotten under the skin of our little horse lady.

We must always be in the battle for truth, justice and the American way. War is good only if our side wins. What do you think about horse racing? How would you like it if someone put a saddle on you and road you around a track?

I'm not sure what you're arguing for or against, and I'm not sure anyone else knows either. Please clarify in round 2.

You seemed to be arguing both for and against war: "We must always be in the battle for..." and "War is good only if out side wins."

Then you made a point about horse racing being unfair to the horses.

I'm not addressing these statements, since I don't know what my supposed position in this debate is, but I'll respond in round 2 once my opponent tells me what his position is.

To tell you the truth, I don't remember what this debate is about either. Something about horses?

Are you against all war, like fighting Nazi Germany during WW2? What war would you fight? War of Independence from UK? Civil War to preserve the union and free the slaves?
Sanchez

Con

Lol...

I don't know if I would have supported the wars you speak of, since I can't really feel the relevant feelings here in 2008. I don't support the current middle east wars, though. I just don't think the gain is worth the lives, time, and money we're putting into it.

Also, horses make good steeds for riding into battle on.

OK, we at least agree that historically the horse has been indispensable in war prior to World War One.

Nothing's as fun as beating a dead horse, though. And there's quite a bounty of those on a battlefied with cavalry.

Anyway, it was nice, uh, conversing with you. I can't rightly call that a debate, since there really weren't any sides.
