keystone pipeline (I'm against it)

Volkov

I disagree with the keystone pipeline because it's unsafe. In the leak on May 7, 2011 near Millner, N.D., 21,000 gallons of oil was spilled in total. I would like to see what someone else who disagrees with me has to say about this....

Should countries in Africa become a political and economic union?

DylanDraper1993
Volkov

Hello. I welcome anyone to accept this debate, and to he/she who does I thank you. In my argument i will show that the African Union, similar to the EU, is a bad thing, and does more harm than good. As Pro you will need to convince me that the AU will do more good than harm. We must both refute each others main points or simply yield them to their opponent. You may use as many rounds as provided to refute your opponents points or strengthen your own. We both carry "Burden of proof" Happy Hunt...

If Texas, as a majority, were to threaten to secede from the Union if its demands were not met, basic freedom would, on balance, be violated more than granted. Texas - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas As a majority - this assumes that a majority of Texans support the threatening Threaten to secede - establish itself as a separate country upon certain conditions being met The Union - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States If its demands are not met - if the United States Fede...

An non interventionist strategy is the best way to curb population growth

Rascal
Volkov

We have a population crisis on our hands whether people want to accept it or not, let alone openly talk about it. The human populace will reach an unsustainable level at some point in the future if it continues to grow at the same exponential rate of 1.2% (1). My side of the argument is that we should not adopt strategies to tackle the problem but rather leave it to nature. This would take place through a series of natural checks like the ones set out by Thomas Malthus in his Principle of Pop...

GermanSoviet

Hello everyone, and especially to my opponent, who I thank for taking this debate in advance.

I will provide some definitions first, and launch into my argument after. Business: a person, partnership, or corporation engaged in commerce, manufacturing, or a service; profit-seeking enterprise or concern. [1] Interest: to concern (a person, nation...

French being taught in Canada is unnessicary if only taken untill grade 9

Rangesjk
Volkov

I thank my opponent in advance for accepting this. This is my first debate and I would like to hear another persons point of view. In Canda french has to be taught untill grade 9, then its optional if you want to continue. Learning a new language is great and I would love to do so but in high school (grade 9) it is treated rather as a class simply nessicary to pass to graduate. The attitude french teachers and students have is disencouraging me to memorize numerous verb conjigations, spel...

Life does not have a satisfactory "meaning" under an atheist perspective.

wjmelements
Volkov

Meaning here means "purpose", as in the phrase, "The meaning of life". Satisfactory- giving or affording satisfaction; fulfilling all demands or requirements http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/satisfactory I contend that life has no purpose and that their is no motivation to live from an atheist perspective. I will allow my opponent to go first so that he/she may present a few potential purposes of life to be debated....

Should Child Abusers and Drug addicted Mothers be sterilized?

timerin
Volkov

Should parents who beat, possibly kill, their children be allowed to procriate, and in some States where it is legal for legislators to remove the fetus of unborn babies from drug addicted mothers (in the hopes of saving them) should they too be allowed to have children? How many times does a woman have a fetus removed before the State put a stop to her pregnancies, and what happens to the children who are saved? My purpose for this is really to get the views and opinions of others, whether p...
