Motions for the 2nd Metro Area Debate Championships

This House Believes That the Jeepneys are no longer the kings of the road

This House Believes That Philippine teleseryes have done more harm done good to our society

This House Would criminalize extra judicial kiligs (fun motion)

This House Believes That we should forget the ghost of our past

Ang bahay na ito ay pinagsisisihan ang popularidad ng Filipino noontime shows (tagalog motion)

Assuming the technology exist, This House Would wipe out the memories of convicted criminals instead of sentencing them to jail.
