Television is projecting the wrong message to youth and setting the wrong expectations.

Randomknowledge

Nowadays, all that you see on television are things that are not setting good examples for young people. They are showcasing murders, guns, sexual relations, and the like. You see all the stuff that parents DONT want their kids seeing. As a youth, i see all this and know what it is like. For my opening argument I would like to bring up the easiness of sitting on the couch and wathcing the tube. You do nothing but stare, and occasionally showcase some emotions. You do nothing, basically....

President Bush supporters should be treated badly.

Randomknowledge

While I am completely and utterly against Our Current president, I am not against his (few) supporters. Whenever someone is picked out of the crowd as being someone who Supports the President, they are pinpointed by the non-bush supporters and are just about turned into mincemeat. There is a legal right to have whatever beliefs you want, and these non-bush extremeists are not following these guidelines. They harrass them, they yell at them and give them a hard time because of waht they believe i...

It is not considered socially correct to sing to yourself but not talk to yourself

Randomknowledge

I want to truly specify what this debate is about. It is about the twisted social fallacies that say that it is ok to sing alone or to yourself but your looked at as weird or being socially awkward if you talk to yourself. What is the big difference? Where does a persons good judgement come into play? I will elaborate much more so in my next argument as this is a four round debate. Argument: It is not considered socially correct to sing to yourself but not talk to yourself. There are childr...

If You're Old Enough to Join the Army, You're Old Enough to Vote

I got into an argument about this with someone and thought I'd debate it here. Before 1970, the age in the U.S. when people were allowed to vote was 21, but 18 was the age when people could join the army, and get drafted. This caused quite a stir in the midst of Vietnam and the voting age was lowered by the 26th Amendment. I agree with this. If someone is able to join the army, particularly to fight in a war which requires a level of intelligence and maturity, then they are certainly capa...

"McDonald's are Bad" documentaries dont work.

Randomknowledge

I beleive that it takes a strong person to not do something they know is bad for you but tastes so good. It takes a weak person to succumb to modern literature and media as a credible source to base your personal opinion on. This is what all of the McDonalds documentaries are trying to do. They are technically trying to convince people about how bad the products being sold at McDonalds fast food chains really are. My stand is that these documentaries are a waste of millions of budget dollars bec...

Abortion should be illegal because many reasons, and here I will name a few: 1. It is unethical 2. An unborn baby is still a baby,babies are human beings, and therefore an unborn baby is still a human being. 3. Killing any human being is murder. 4. No person should be able to decide when another person should be killed....
