School only lets people stay bored , watch the time, *Tick* *Tock*. So we should at least shorten it. Kids have way too much homework so they should not have any. People have had more then 12 Years in school! You think that its wow, thats like jail. Mostly kids should learn at home. Thats great because you can have soup for lunch, play Fifa, MW3, Minecraft for recess too. Well teachers will not lose their jobs, they will get transfered. See kids have fun, less school, no homework because school...

Becuase the ISIS is evil and will edstroy America, we must stand up and fight. If Obama thinks we will just sit here and do nothing we will die. We must arm ourselves because the ISIS will bring Ebola here. But the dirty liberals don't want no guns here, no sir....

Obama is Worse than George Bush

Obama is evil because he pulled the trops out of the evil Iraq and Afghanistan. Howver, Bush invaded the terrorists, so he must be a lot better. Obama created the evil Obamacare: now taxes on the poor have been increased greatly. Also, Bush cut the taxes on the rihc, whereas Obama has broght them to an all-time high. Obama is a Muslim, so he must be with Osama. There's a reason we of the Tea Party Patriots call him "Barack HUSSEIN OSAMA." Vote PRO or you're a fascist communist terror...

Should school hours be dropped to spend more time with family?

I think that school hours should remain the same to meet deadlines such as yearly tests. School is about preparing you for the work world. Work days start as early as 6:00 AM and end as late as 5:00 PM. That is even longer than the school day....

Round 1 is the opening argument, and round 2 is the rebuttal and closing . There is no rebuttals in the first round. The topic at hand is whether progressive news shows are more balanced an unbiased than conservative ones. I have watched and listened to many shows in my life. The O'Reilly Factor, Hannity, The Caiden Cowger Show, and The Rush Limbaugh Show are examples of what I've listened to on the conservative side. On the progressive side, I've listened to The Young Turks, The Rubin Report...
