Thursday Debate: "Don't Ask, Dont Tell"

This week for the Thursday Debate, I want you to do research on the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Policy. The "Don"t Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) Policy restricts openly expressed homosexuals to join the Armed Forces. This Law has become big in the news for the last few weeks so it won't be hard to find. Leave your opinions in the comment box.

See my opinion of last weeks debate in the comments.

Tuesday quick tip

After a winter of hibernation, your grill is ready to start cooking again. But it might have goop and grime on it that's difficult to remove now. To easily clean it, wrap the grill rack completely in aluminum foil and fire up the grill. Let the wrapped grill rack cook for 30 minutes, and then after it cools, pull the rack out; you'll find that the debris has fallen to the bottom of the foil and can be thrown out.

Debate Thursday: Keystone XL Pipeline closes, College football playoffs opens

It's that time of the week again, it's debate Thursday. Last week I told you to do research on the Keystone XL Pipeline. I did my research and this is what I have decided. The Keystone XL Pipeline has a much greater risk of a leak than a normal United States pipeline. It uses thinner steel, weaker steel all at a higher pressure. You are probably wondering about the U.S. guidelines, well they are using Canada's guidelines. Leave your thoughts in the comment box below and I will hapilly read them.

This week for he Thursday debate, ' Should college football have playoffs?'

Debate Thursday: Keystone XL Pipeline

Sorry I've been gone for over a month, just been busy. So it has come to my attention that there is a proposed oil pipeline to go through all of America and dump off in Houston. After that, it just goes back to Canada. Between today and 7 days from today, I want you to do research on this and leave a comment on what you think. I will post my own opinion in the meantime, but not now so that will not effect your opinion.
