Interesting topic.

I would do this but to busy.

I wouldn't mind taking up that debate. Just send me the challenge if you want

I think about opposing arguments to mine all the time. The one thing that is glaringly common in almost all opposing arguments to mine.... The opposing argument is almost always based on feelings and devoid of all logic. I can't debate the opposing side because my feelings have nothing to do with my thinking process with regard to all things not immediate to my family. And even still feelings are only considered rarely. Making decisions based on feelings is the worst possible way to make any decision. I can't debate that which is devoid of logic and common sense.
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

I ONLY argue from the other side.
I AM THE CHOSEN ONE
I AM THE GRAND POOBAH OF DDO
I AM THE BOOGIE MAN
I AM THE REAL LIFE SANTA CLAUSE
I AM THE PARADOXICAL ZEBRA PRANCING THROUGH THE GRASSY PLANES YOUR COGNITIVE EXPERIENCE
I AM THE REINCARNATION OF THE DEAD DREAMS OF HUMANITY
I AM THE DISH WHO RAN AWAY WITH THE SPOON
I am your friend.

Nope because my debate style relies on data/facts instead of rhetoric and the other side has no data/facts supporting it

I found that funny.
