An argument against
Men

Ok, I agree I did misunderstand Spazol.

An argument against
Men

I take offense to the statement that men have created MOST of the useful and artistic accomplishments! Read your history women have contributed MANY useful and creative things. It was a woman that created the windshield wipers. Madame Currie made great strides in chemistry. Artist and craftful women created most of the quilt patterns known today. Look at the wonderful designs created in basket weaving by the Hopi Indian women. Look at the weaving done by Hmong women. What about Billie Holiday, Georgia O'Keeffe, Emily Dickinson, Cornelia Otis Skinner, etc., etc....

An argument for
Stephen King Novels

I have read Stephen King books for years and the fact that I ca still name and remember the books that I have read, is a testimony to how much the affected my psyche. King plays to our fears and uses popular culture to produce eerie but memorable fiction.

An argument against
Is Barbie a good role model?

Barbie is NOT a role model!!!! Barbie is a piece of plastic!!! She has no moral compass or standards!! She is just a doll. If one is going to apply title of role model to Barbie, where do we draw the line?
Is GI Joe a war monger or is he just another piece of plastic?
If a parent does not like the doll then they should not buy the doll.
Let us give credit to all the young girls across the world that play or have played with Barbie. They understand that Barbie is a doll and all the clothing, accessories and career choices are not reality.

An argument for
The Winter Olympics

Although the Olympics, like everything else has become a fodder for commercialism, it is still a wonderful spectacle of talent and athletic ability. It does have that 'winner of the moment' but isn't that the reality of everyday life?
I always love those that come to the Olympics with no expectations of winning, they are just there for the joy of participation in a world wide event. How about the women figure skater from Turkey...she is the lone figure skater at her level in her home country...remember the Jamaican bobsled team or the English skier Eddy the Eagle? Those are the heart and soul of the Olympics not the pampered "stars".

It may be slightly hokey, watching the athletes march in at the opening ceremonies but it is a wonderful spectacle of world wide harmony. For once everyone is a friend to all and people from all across the globe have come together in peace. It all most makes you want to believe the words to "We are the World"

An argument for
Fire

If we did not have fire where would Scouts sit and sing songs?
Seriously, if controlled it can be used for so many things that benefit mankind. I provides heat and can be used for cooking.
It may destroy things if uncontrolled but in nature it is also a cleansing and a way for rebirth of environments.

An argument against
Facebook

some abuse this easy access to the outside world and seem to think that we all need to know the mundane things of their everyday live. I really do not care of you just ate a bowl of cereal with a banana.

An argument for
Facebook

facebook has connected me with several people I have not heard from in quite a while.
It is a great way to keep in touch leave a message at an odd hour of the morning or night. I am sometimes up at 4am...not many folks would appreciate a call from me, just to catch up on the going ons in their lives.

An argument against
People should be able to sell themselves into slavery

Before I can even begin to argue about this...I want to know a few things...
1) How did this idea come about?
2) Is this actually a reality somewhere?
3) Is this slavery for a person's entire life?
4) Do you have to be an adult?
5) If you are a slave you have no rights, so what prevents your owner from "subcontracting" to another person?
6) What about a medical crisis?

Now if you ask me the same question at 2am after watching Armageddon Week on the History channel I will have a whole different opinion! :)

An argument against
2012

Many, many times the end of the world has been predicted and has not happened. There seems to be a lot of hype on this subject. Words written by Nostradamus and others are so cryptic that any number of interpretations can be stated.

An argument for
Avatar: The Movie

I have to say the title could have been Pocahontas In Outer Space and I could spend a great deal of time punching holes in the story line, but I do not think that literary classic was the purpose of this movie. It was a wonderful bombardment of visual entertainment. I enjoyed the special effects and the bold colors. Sometimes movies are just for entertainment.

An argument for
Same Sex Marriage

Having met some wonderful and loving same sex couples, I see know no reason for there not to be a union between these people. The traditional marriage is suppose to be two be united in love. . A commitment to stay together for a long term relationship is a marriage! So why not make it legal.

I can not see how our Creator in His infinite wisdom would condemn the love of two people. Those who are ready to quote the Bible and state that marriage should always and only be male and female....well they are usually the same that are sure that anyone who does not fit into their "pretty little box" must come to their way of thinking or burn in hell.

As for the argument that marriage should produce children, there are many couples who purposely choose not to have children, should these marriages be banned?

An argument against
Cochlear implants

I have heard that the deaf community frowns upon these implants. They state they re a community with a language and rich culture.

An argument for
Cochlear implants

This is a hearing world, so any opportunity should be given to a child or adult to be taken into consideration.

An argument against
Is there a "war on Christmas" in this country?

Christmas in its various forms has been around for centuries. This current incarnation is only a manifestation of the current culture.
A war is a conflict of interest ...and (this is meant with sarcasm) that sounds like many family gatherings at any holiday!
Seriously, there will always be a core group with the genuine belief that our culture needs to be readjusted to their way of thinking. Unless, Christmas is outright banned, there is no actual war.
Everyone is entitled to their point of view.

An argument against
Reality TV

What does this type of programing say about the general status of our society? Have we sunk to the level of the Romans watching gladiators torn apart by lions? When will it end? Will, some one have to get hurt, seriously or killed before this type of entertainment comes to an end? AND may I add just HOW REAL is this type of entertainment..cameras rolling and camera crew...if I was on a reality show viewers would change the channel since my REAL life is SO BORING! Are people watching these show so disappointed with their own life they must watch this?

An argument for
Recycling

there is more to recycling than just dropping things into recycling bins.
Look creatively at the items you are about to throw away. I just used an old bed sheet for a draft stopper. Old plates are under plant pots. Worn out t-shirts can become dust rags. Plastic bags can be donated to your local food pantry or resale shop. Donate magazines to your local nursing home or library. Of course donating clothing and buying clothing at resale shops is sort of a form of recycling.
If you can start a compost heap.
Old worn towels can be cut done into dish clothes.
If you think about it,I am sure that you can come up with many more ideas.

An argument for
Motorcycle Helmet Laws

Mr. Huge, Do you like picking out your own clothes each morning? Do you enjoy eating out and choosing what you want from the menu? Do you like the way you wear your hair? Do like hanging out with your friends? Do you enjoy sex? OR do you like BINGO and Lawernce Welk? Do you like ice cream socials?
WEAR A HELMET!!
I have taken care of enough young men involved in accidents without the benefit of a helmet. Pelase do not be my next!
Enter a nursing home and: Someone like me will pick out your clothes in the morning. These will be clothes purchased by your Mom , so chances are you will be looking like Mr. Rogers on a bad day.
Your food consumption will be determined by the registered dietitian and served on a schedule. There will be no menu for the pureed food you will be served.
Your hair will be cut short.
Your friends will visit for a while (about a month, average) and fade away. Your visitors will be mom,dad the local church groups, volunteers that read to the patients and an occasional Scout troop doing community service.
Your girlfriend may visit a bit longer than your friends and then she will move on.
The highlights of your day will be the activities designed to keep you busy, this includes Arts and Crafts, sing alongs, church groups and socials.

I write this with actual tears in my eyes because of the memories of the young men that I have met who have had their lives cut short, suffer and died.
Please,wear a helmet!

An argument against
Bottled water

the human race has been consuming water for century with the benefit of plastic bottles. The water that comes out of your tap is just as refreshing and cures your thirst the same as bottled water.

The American consumer sure has been suckered into this advertisement ploy.

An argument against
Making the Bed

I do not know if this is an arguement or just a simple FYI
One of the things we teach in occupational therapy is energy conservation. Energy conservation is taught to those with COPD and the like. The lesson taught is you DO NOT have to make a bed, just shut your bed room door. But, if it is important to you make the bed and conserve energy else where.

An argument for
The Legalization of Marijuana

All I have to say is SO MANY people for SO MANY years have used marijuana that if it was as harmful as the government says, well there would be asylums filled to capacity with smoke addled patients.

Alcohol consumption is legal,yet is cause of car accidents and violence.

One last thought, some where in Genesis God says (and this is not a direct quote) I give you seed bearing plants.

Does anyone knoe when marijuana actually became illegal?

OK, I am done and I know this is a rambling argument.

An argument for
LOLspeak

LOLspeak is nothing more than the morphing of our modern way of communicating. Language flows and changes. Ever try to read Beowulf in Old English? Back in the day I used the word boss...Anyone know what that means?..and the phrase "back in the day" has just recently become a common bit of terminology. AND if an old lady like me KNOWS and UNDERSTANDS some LOLspeak it is already passing out of coolness stage just like the phrases Far Out and the cat's meow.

An argument against
Home Schooling

Not only does home schooling limit the child's socialization, it limits the diversity of interactions with people of other beliefs. The child never has to deal with the day to day problems of school,such as bullies and social cliques. Their exposure is only to what is presented to them by the parents. AND where do these kids go to just get away from the family? Where is the down time from Mom,Dad, and siblings? I can go onand on but will end here.
