My chances of finding a girlfriend are likely less that than of my peers.

My argument is simple, the chances of my finding a girlfriend, or a 'partner' (EG, mutual interest with a girl) is less than that of my peers. I will allow at least one round for question / answer session if my opponent chooses to do so. I reserve the right to refuse to answer especially personal or embarrassing questions. For some BG info.... * I am 19 years old * I am a male * I am heterosexual * I have a strong desire for a girlfriend * I have had one girlfriend * We didn't tou...

While alcohol has already been made legal, there are still some minor restrictions on it's use (such as driving) without an outright ban. * Resolution implies t...

hi my name is Jake and i am on the con side of this debate. i think that offshore drilling is not ok since it it will not help us until ten years. and getting the equipment is going to take longer. so we are going to get effects starting on 2030. and these estimate are true if everything run perfectly and we all know that nothing is perfect. our craving for oil will not do us any good at all. we are just going to want more and more and more, but soon there will be no more oil to spare. but we ha...

In this debate, here are my main arguments: By appointing strict constructionist judges to the United States Supreme Court, only the o...

Capitalism can effectively substitute, if not exceed, any service the state provides, including a police force, fire control, judicial system, ect. I await my opponent's rebuttal, and wish him the best of luck....

about Chinese government

auti96
DucoNihilum

some people say china is a communist state but some people say its not i dont think it is because China is not communist nor is it socialistic. It is also often referred to as totalitarian and a dictatorship. Both are equally as wrong too. Communism: is a the opposite of capitalism so therefore it is impossible they are communistic. The first people who were allowed to use limited capitalism were the farmers back in the 50's because of the failure of collective farming. The whole country is...
