    Can You Debate a Political Issue W/o Mentioning Trump, Obama, or Political Parties?

    Thought experiment: I'm just wondering if we're capable of debating/discussing a topic without resorting to the standard rhetoric re: Democrats/Republicans/Trump/Obama? Like, say, immigration. Is it possible to discuss possible policies/solutions regarding immigration without reference to...

    Pointless Debate Thread

    I know this is kind of a pointless thread but how the fuck did Ronnie win the primaries in 1980? If this is how he did most of the primary debates he was being destroyed by GHW Bush. Reagan is all talk but no substance. He doesn't offer anything, really while Bush is perfectly reasonable, shows...

    so now it's an "illegal" immigration debate?

    just saw our VP addressing troops blaming the Democrats for the government shutdown. This administration just has no shame. He framed the impasse as a choice between funding the military and looking out for "illegal" immigrants. Does this administration not realize that we have non citizens...

    dishonest debate tactics.

    time to have a discussion about this. Rather than try to cover them all I thought it might be useful if members just gave examples of debate tactics that have frustrated them. Please try to be nice to each other. I'll start. Just had this discussion with a couple of users. It's the tactic...

    The art of debate...

    When did we give up on logic and reason as the foundation of debate? Going from presenting blogs as undeniable fact and attacking when a contrary opinion is presented. The haste with which the majority of debate devolves into ad hominem or other fallacious debate techniques... Have we...

    Clinton Says 'My Skin Crawled' During Debate With Trump

    Hillary's new book is ready for release. I found some of her remarks to be very telling and in particular the part about the creep stalking her. Her explanation for ignoring him was understandable considering her years in the White House where the first lady has always had pressure to be...

    Artificial wombs are coming, debate over abortion will be forever changed?

    There’s a scientific development on the horizon that could upend the abortion debate: artificial wombs. The technology included placing the premature lambs in a “biobag” containing a bath of simulated amniotic fluid, regularly replenished, with an oxygenator circuit connected to the lamb via...

    Navalny - Strelkov debate
