On a debate team, one has to be prepared to debate *either* side of a specified subject area.

So, what points from the "other side" do think have merit. Are there any points that you haven't seen that you think would be hard to counter?

Are you not familiar with anyone that has lost their job for a year or more during this recession?

The unemployment and savings would only have to cover 25%. If there is only one working spouse and they lose their job, the unemployment and savings would have to cover 100%.

I am familiar with people who have been laid off and unable to find full time work in their fields. But those people are not without incomes. They find something to bring in money even if it delivering newspapers or something while they are looking.

Most people do monthly budgets. I have always done a weekly one as that is what worked for us. Food has always been right on top of the list-lol!! (we LIVE to eat, not EAT to live-lol!!).

First of all. Not everyone I know is a prof, and secondly, I was raised to believe in the value of all honest labor. My kids and I delivered phone books this summer and were happy to earn the money.
