    About The Whole Minors And Sex Issue

    I apologize for not being able to continuously reply to the thread concerning minors and sex. I of course became really busy with other things and by the time I came back the thread was closed.

    "Ninjitsu As The Ultimate Martial Art"

    Anyone seen the national geographic documentary "Fight Science"? They claim that ninjitsu is the ultimate martial art because it combines all forms of fighting (striking, grappling, submission, archery, explosives, sword, dagger, balance, ect.) into one art. Is this generally considered true? I...

    .357 vs .44 (Smith & Wesson)

    Which gun do you think is better for self defence between the .357 magnum and the .44 magnum? I assume that since the .44 is made at a later time that it would be more advanced. But I have heard of cases where the .357 outclasses the .44 still. What do you guys think? And which gun packs a...

    Voluntary Sex With Minors

    I recently watched a show on MSNBC called "To Catch A Predator"; http://msnbc.msn.com/id/12842511/ where the news crew lures adult men into thinking they are going to have consenting sex with minors. For more information read the article. Anyways, I don't really agree with the shows...

    Which Is More Essential: Public Health Care Or Public Schools?

    In an earlier thread I advocated privatizing schools and maybe use the money to pay for a public health care system (paid by local taxes, state, taxes, or federal taxes, whichever). Although I currently still favor a private health care system, I am still open to the idea of some public health...

    Bush Backs Proposed Ban on Gay Marriage

    http://www.voanews.com/english/2006-06-03-voa14.cfm He was talking about this a bit last term, but I didn't think he would bring the issue up again. I don't understand Bush! He is so random. One moment he is talking about the war, the next oil American oil adiction, and now back to this. Why...

    Nudity And Swear Words

    Every society has its own taboos and regulations, even modern societies. For example in the Western world it is taboo for men to wear skirts (and women wearing pants in the past as well). However as a general rule most taboos have no laws regarding them. For example a man can wear a skirt...

    Bush Says Immigration Law Must Tighten Borders

    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=10000087&sid=aEPO3SKEQtPM&refer=top_world_news I never expected Bush to do this! I always thought he wanted the boarders and immigration laws loose because I thought he was for cheap labor. Good move I think, since it is against...

    Educaid vs Public Education

    "Every time I encounter someone in the workplace, I am reminded of just how much we have failed to properly educate United States citizens in the fundamentals of communication: reading, writing and speaking. Few would argue that the time is long overdue for the United States to "get back to the...

    Bush For Alternative Fuel?

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4672216.stm I guess Bush himself isn't as oil hungry was we thought. Iraq and oil doesn't make much sense either (unless this is an act, in which there is no proof for such a thing). If someone like Bush made a speech on how important it is (despite...

    New Video From Binladden

    http://www.wral.com/apworldnews/6250005/detail.html Binladden has obvious flaws in many of his reasoning, but to be honest I do believe we should leave the Middle East entirely, even Israel (After we reconstruct Iraq of course!). I supported both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars for obvious...

    Is Abortion A Religious Moral Issue Or A Universal Moral Issue?

    I never really cared as much about the abortion and for a lot of my life I was pro-choice. However after hearing many pro-life arguments I did find a point for their arguments and decided that there needs to be a centrist solution. Abortion in my opinion should be legal to 4.5 months, the midway...

    Eliminate Property Tax And Tax More On Consumer Products?

    It never made much sense to me. Why do you have to pay tax for something you already own? I mean let's be serious here, when you buy something from the supermarket you pay taxes and yes this okay because you are buying something. Perhaps you should pay a good amount of tax for the properties and...
