    Shumway's Debate

    • 822 Words
    • 4 Pages

Any dispute of which the opposition could talk enough about I would consider truthful. This particularly gullible mindset could have set me exceedingly far back behind my peers. I was very much aware of this weakness throughout my experiences. Disputes with my peers, and in some…

    Sports debate is a hobby that I am most passionate for. A reason I am so fond of this hobby is because it includes two of my favorite things: sports and arguing. I constantly find myself tuning into ESPN to watch ESPN first take or Fox Sports to watch Undisputed. These two sports debate shows take up most of most mornings as I would sit watching the art of oration between two well prepared candidates. Unlike sports debate, writing papers was not one of my hobbies. In fact my mindset towards…

    the morning of the tournament. I was nervous as it was my first one I had ever been to. I didn't know what to expect and I was nervous but confident that I would do well. I drove to Moline High School and met up with other members of the debate team. As I walked outside to the bus I could feel how cold it was outside. It was 5 AM so I was tired and I took a short nap on the bus. I woke up when everyone else woke up and started talking to my debate partner Lance about our strategy for the…

    Presidential debates have been and still are a major player to the Presidential elections. The debates have evolved from newspaper to radio to television and now to social media/ the internet. One of the most popular debates have been decided by the image presented by each president. Television made this task for presidents even harder because now they look good or they will pay the consequences.

    Watching the first debate was an interesting experience for me as I have never seen the US election debates before. I believe the introduction debate is one of the most crucial debates, since people will see for the first time what candidates are planning to do and whether or not they are comfortable with their plans. In this debate, there were three topics that candidates had to cover. In my essay, I will discuss Hillary Clinton's arguments and objections, as well as, Donald Trump's arguments.…

    Everyday men and women debate over controversial topics like; medically assisted suicide, the death penalty, gun control laws, or even where to eat dinner. These topics are ones that once your personal opinion is set it is hard to change, just like abortion laws. Being pro-life or pro-choice is an opinion that some may not understand or respect. But how they came about doesn’t change and who made these amendments still stands. No matter your stance, no matter your gender, the majority of society…
