Is giving kids phones and ipads at reastraunts and at lazy parenting?

Bitbatgaming

When I was at the science fair awards ceremony , about 98% of the kids had cellphones ( excluding me , my sister, and a couple of other people.) They were sticking it out and recording their friends getting awards, and then posting it to other social networking sites. I personally think that this is very disrespectful and it makes others feel miserable, that they worked so hard, and everybody is on their phones / tablets, making them feel like nobody cares about their projects . I think this is...

Philanthropy Should Be Compulsory

David12N
LuciferWept

I want to argue that philanthropy should be compulsory or close to compulsory. A special tax, opt-out charity donations, etc. Five assumptions on why, Not enough money is going to philanthropy. Efforts to significantly increase philanthropy have not been successful. Philanthropy can do good things. {For example, not for profits are better at finding people work than the government}. It is easier to get the money through something like tax than thousands of fundraisers. Italy has a s...

The Bryan Mullins Logic: World War Two and the Holocaust Did Not Happen At All

BryanMullinsNOCHRISTMAS2
SuperTrooper44

World War Two and The Holocaust did not happen at all because of the following: If it's not about who did it, it did not happen. If it's not about where and when it happen, it did not happen. If it's not about who died, it did not happen. If it's not about why, it did not happen. If your parent or friend punishes you and tells you "you should be ashamed of yourself" your parent or friend is a bad influence in your life. Ignore people who punish you and tell you "you should be ashamed of...

What Grande PATISSERIE is better

Well, I think that the Cheese and Berries flavor is more consistent than the Apple flavor. With the apple flavor you only get one flavor and for the same price? So why wouldn't you want to 2 flavors for the same price? It's crazy that this is even an argument. The nutritional facts may vary by person, but for a good snack during 3rd hour, you can get 250 calories worth of deliciousness. The Apple flavor has 370mg of Sodium, so obviously the Cheese and Berries flavor is a healthier choice and a g...

Career debate: Psychiatry

Capitalistslave
GodTier

Rules of debate:1) Con should name a career that they will be arguing for in round 1. Since we will both be arguing why our career is better than the other, we both have a burden of proof. 2) No insults, personal attacks, ad hominem3) The total number of rounds used for argument should be the total you see here minus 1. This is to keep the total number of rounds used for argument even between us, since I am not using round 1 for argument4) The last r...

Should Transgenders Be Allowed to Join the BSA

TMNGerbil
BrendanD19

Let us assume that by transgender people we mean girls "feeling" they're boys. The BSA - BOY Scouts of America - is specifically for boys. Yes, there have been girls in it before, but that was either cub scout leaders or CO-ED/venture groups. I know because I'm in one. Those girls who believe they are boys have that right to live in the delusion that they are boys, but that doesn't change their genetical make-up. "Oh, but what about 'the treatment'?" That does nothing. It's just like som...

Transgender Children Who Identify As Males Be Able To Join A Boy Scouts Troop

princesspetty
SJM

Transgender children who identify as males should DEFINITELY be let into a Boy Scout Troop. It is a boy scout troop not a biologically born boys troop. Many children who change genders do it because they aren't interested in what their original gender does or is classified as. If a biological girl wants to become a boy and join a boy scout troop, let him/her. They probably aren't interested in selling cookies and doing crafts (although that isn't all girl scouts do) should be able to join a BS T...
