    There several that I, as a speech teacher do not allow in my classes.

    I am not interested in finding out any more about:

    Legalization of Marijuana


    Illegal Aliens (and I don't mean star men!)

    Creationism vs Evolution


    How about something to do with the high salaries of sports athletes, or doping in sports, or CEO salaries, or global warming, or prostitution, or logging in Brazil's rain forests, or the melting poles, or the growth of the nations of China and India, they are where we were 20 years ago, and growing fast, will they use more power than we do???

    Good luck with this stuff. It is always fun to hear speeches, and I hope yours is a good one!

    1. How have animated comedies influenced societal norms? (ie, southpark, family guy, simpsons, etc) 2. How should the FDA proceed with their rulings on marijuana? 3. How will the US' first marijuana bar influence policy? 4. Does illegal downloading really damage the economy? 5. How does sexting reflect itself on our generation and what does it indicate about our sexuality/identity?

    Tibet? Chinese rule over everything and everyone in their country? Maybe even the amount of violence shown on television these days and how it is changing children's behaviors.
