Reasoning: These people are coming to Europe for a better life.

Evidence: Europe has many resources that other countries do not have. Also, Europe is the closest to Africa and the Middle East so, it is the best that Europe should take them in.

Hello. My name is Karishma and I am on the opposition side of this debate. I support that European nations should not be required to accept refugees from Africa and the Middle East.

Assertion: Europe would become very overcrowded.

Reasoning: In some places where the refugees are going, there is not a lot of land to hold thousands of refugees.

Evidence: Many refugees are trying to settle in Hungary. Hungary is a very small country. It is not able to hold such a large amount of people.

Reasoning: Some refugees have diseases. If they get to Europe, the diseases will be then Europe's problem.

Evidence:Refugees can give Europeans by accidentally bumping into them or touching something that other Europeans touch.

Hello my name is Karishma and I am on the proposition side of this debate.

Assertion: It costs around double the penny's worth to make a penny.

Reasoning: In 2011, 5 billion pennies were produced. The U.S. spent around $120 million to produce less than $50 million of circulating currency.

Evidence: The penny drains around $900 million from the national economy each year.

Assertion: The penny does not have any use.

Reasoning: In the earlier times, things were cheaper. Now they are not.

Evidence: Before, you could buy a piece of candy like bubble gum for a penny. (These things were called penny candy.) Now, you can not. Things cost more than just a penny.

Assertion: There will not be an economical breakdown.

Reasoning: Pennies are worth very little. People may lose some money but they can always get money from their jobs.

Evidence: Canada abolished the penny and they did not have an economical breakdown.

Pennies should be abolished because the cost to make a penny is double it's worth, the penny does not have any use, and there will not be an economical breakdown.

Assertion: Many people would lose their jobs.

We should make cigarettes illegal because many people can lose their jobs, cigarettes could be sold on the black market, and you can choose if you want to smoke. it is not someone's fault if you get some diseases.
