debateBITCHES is back, atleast on a smaller scale. the desire to defend one's canidate is over but the need to stay on top of the issues and current events is still evident.
i saw this article this morning and found it interesting even though its not a great piece of journalism.

Ex-Hostage: Rebels Wanted Bush Re-Elected

PARIS (AP) - French journalists held hostage for four months in Iraq said their militant captors told them they wanted President Bush to win re-election.

In a four-page account of their ordeal, one of the reporters, Georges Malbrunot, also wrote that they saw several other hostages who were later decapitated. The journalists said their captors viewed foreign businessmen working in Iraq as their enemies.

One of the captors from the group calling itself the Islamic Army in Iraq said Bush's re-election would boost their cause, Malbrunot wrote in Friday's edition of Le Figaro, the French daily he works for.

``We want Bush because with him the American troops will stay in Iraq and that way we will be able to develop,'' Malbrunot cited the captor as saying.

I fixed the community so you guys can post in here now, I'm sorry I have been such a poor moderator.

First off, it must of been a hell of a day for the Edwards family. Kerry and Edwards conceded the Presidentcy and then found out Edwards wife has breast cancer that same day.

Yesterday was bad for me, I'm feeling better about it all and decided I'm not going to stop talking politics because the election is over.

One thing I think we should start is talking locally. There will always be inter/national issues to address but its been pretty redundant lately. But I think local issues would be refreshing.

So, Prop 200.

agree, disagree....don't know about it?

let the discussion begin and start posting what you all want in here.

george w. bush will be president of the united states until 2008.

the democrats are more than upset/disappointed.
the republicans are more than overjoyed.
we are all exhausted, i think.

this community is going to be put to rest for awhile.
its actually too painful for me to debate over anymore.

nothing but respect to you all and it was fun.
be kind to your fellow "opponets" though, we are all americans.
dont be a sore winner or loser.

but i would suggest to remain a member of debateBITCHES because if something shady takes place...

im sorry i havent been updating often, and im sorry i havent figured out how to get you all to be able to post in here but...

i wanted to draw attention to something anne brought up

i was reading the section in the Tribune called the Vent. it is where people can call in and say something and hope it will appear in the paper. i found one that was quite upsetting to me.

"For you Christians who actually vote Democratic in this presidential election, understand this: You are choosing John Kerry over Jesus. I hope you can live with it."

i think that is pretty uncalled for.
republican or democratic, you have to agree that that is taking it one step out of line.


i personally cant wait for the election to be over. unfortunetly, no matter who wins...its not going to end on nov. 2nd

The next topic I am going to bring up isn't to be divided amongst republicans and democrats, liberals and conservatives.... its just something I've been debating myself and was wondering where everyone else stands.

Thou shalt not kill
Does a war a justify that? And if a Christian nation supports a war, is that not also supporting a terrible sin?

This has nothing to do with Bush and/or Iraq but in general.

Things have been going pretty well so far, so thanks for participating.
There are some problems with the community for other members to post entries but I will work on that sometime this week. Though it seems you guys are doing well on your own in the comment section.

I would like to remind you on the main focus of this debating community. It is based on sharing information and opinions in a persuasive manner. I haven't called anyone out yet for their behavior but please keep your arguments as intelligent as possible and less "teenager" lingo. I personally just think it makes you sound more confident and aware on your issue.

In our first entry, where it was a get-to-know-you and spun off on a debate primarily on homosexuality, I would like to being up a few good and poor points.

I was very disappointed to read that someone didn't believe in the seperation of church and state. That was one of the most major points in out Constitution. I just can't imagine them being able to accept Jewish or Muslim references in how our laws are passed, its only because their religion is in favor.

As far as gay marriage goes, I'm sure we will see that possibly in all of our debates, whether its mentioned in the original subject or not. But we do have to remember that many people are very stong in their faith. Doesn't make them any better or even right but it is beyond an opinion, part of the way they see all life. But Mike, you conveyed your opinion very well. Though I don't agree, I respect the manner in which you agrued and the points you brought up. Monty, you always bring much intelligence and comic relief to the table so I'm very happy you joined.

Nothing ill came out of the debates as of yet, so good job, guys. But do keep in mind, as things get more heated, that this was set up to create more of an understanding amongst everyone and why they feel the way they do.

During the vice presidential debate, Cheney stated that he never once claimed there was a direct link between Al Quida and Saddam Hussein.

So, to start things off and maybe as a little "get to know eachother" thing,

State your name
Your canidate
And three reasons you think they should be president WITHOUT saying one thing about the other canidate.

Hopefully after this we will have a few more members to start a real debate.
