1. Sending 1,500 more troops to Iraq is like giving a single stitch to someone with a bullet wound. It does absolutely nothing to help the situation in any appreciable way.

2. I can't think of a "for" position because I'm staunchly against the influence of religious doctrine in our public schools.

3. Because it's just stupid. All you have to do to get as drunk as someone who's drinking alcohol of a higher percentage is drink more. I think it's encouraging binge drinking, personally.

4. Perhaps you could arrange something with private ownership where the owner is not allowed to clear cut or in any way substantially alter the forest, but is allowed to charge for access to the forest in order to pay for maintenance and make a profit.

BTW, it's not really a matter of having "facts;" it's more just a measure of how persuasively you argue and how you can counter someone with a differing opinion logically.

mass debate!
mass debate!
I agree with Dirk Gently - the way you put across your point will have as much effect on your audience as what you actually say. Try using counter arguments, which you can then destroy to make your point stronger.

i can defend my point pretty well but i want to find a few facts to plug in there jsut so my teacher doesnt look at me liek a lazy bum


this is so far what i got for topic 3

A bill lowering the drinking age to 16 on alcohol lower than 15% per volume

Im against it because just because the alcohol has lower that15% doesn’t mean you cant get drunk with it basically what the bill is saying kids we are not going to let you buy tequila or whisky but you can buy 3 tons of alcohol that have less that 15% either way
The person can get drunk with and by having more drunk people in the street we are increasing the chances of accidents by having more accidents we are making the hospitals spend more by making hospitals spend more we are increasing the cost of health care by increasing cost of health care we are making less available for people the health care they may really need instead of spending on a dumb 16 year old that got drunk and crashed the money could have gone to a person that may have really problems and is a contributing member of society instead of an alcoholic

Make sure you posh the language up etc.
Also, I personally tend to keep my conclusion until nearer the end of the argument.
