Since so many members have expressed a desire to have a debate forum and our mods and admin have deemed this unadvisable, let me be the first to start the "official" debate thread... Civility is the only rule...let me throw out a few topics to get us started: 1. I think the whole "organic" thing is a scam perpetrated by slick marketers. 2. Those of you who drink bottled water are crazy...it costs more than gasoline. 3. Global warming...BIG MYTH!!! 4. Cigarettes should be declared illegal in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. 5. The Iraq War was a justifiable action. We all know that Saddam Hussein hi-jacked one of those planes on 9/11. 6. Corporate agriculture is not trying to put small farmers out of business. 7. Who's the cruel one? The large poultry farmer that keeps his hens caged their whole lives or the backyard enthusiast that let's his chickens get eaten alive by coons, possums, hawks, etc. 8. Christianity has caused more wars than any other religion over the last 2000 years. 9. All illegal aliens should be put in jail or deported. 10. Why did the chicken cross the road???
