...Words can't hurt me any.

I'm sure everyone has heard the saying, "Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can't hurt me any." This statement rings true in my mind. Basically, the action of uttering words does not effect nor harm you, unless you allow it to do so. There are a countless number of words or combination of words that could be said to someone. Some are good (compliments), and some are not good (insults). But what makes an insult a damaging remark? If i tell you, "You are an smelly jerk," why would...

Drugs that are now illegal to own, use, or sell, should be legalized.

Most people believe that the use of chemical concoctions or prescription drugs for recreational purposes is a terrible practice. Some, however, believe that drug use should be legalized.

Can you legislate morality?

robzilla180
debaterjake

Yes you can legislate morality. We've been doing it for centuries. There isn't a law enforced today that doesn't legislate morality? Take speed limits for example. Everyone in his right mind understands that you need to enforce speed limits. It isn't right for people to go 55 in a 30 zone or 90 in a 55 zone. Why? because you could cause a serious accident. So what do we care? We care because if someone causes an accident, you could very easily kill someone. It isn't right for someone to put thei...
