Top 10 Things that Most Need to Be Banned

The Top Ten
1 Cigarettes

Giant megacorps will make you believe that smoking is "cool" and gets you a lot of girls. What they don't mention is that cigarettes are proven to cause up to 72 or so cancers. Let that sink in.

Cigarettes will never be banned because it's one of those products that is taxed by the government. If you should ban them, you will talk about billions of dollars in losses. It's a product that governments would never allow to be banned. They don't care about your health (they say they do, but that's one of their biggest lies). They just care about the profits from the taxes they get.

And even if, by some miracle in a fantasy world, cigarettes were to be banned, they would look for their lost money in something else. So, saying that they should be banned, why its legal status isn't contested, etc., are all pipe dreams. The only thing you can do is to stay away from smoking (nobody forces you to smoke cigarettes) and to teach real information about the adverse effects (we have made many progresses in that matter compared to say 10 or 20 years ago). Just be smart.

2 Racism

The USA is very racist, but in a quiet way, mostly by police and at voting polls. Any minority with darker skin will tell you the same, especially in the southern states and Arizona, Texas. I've been there and seen it all. It's mostly older, country white men, often poor, uneducated, simple folks. I don't think they understand or can understand any better. Educated white people, especially younger ones, are mostly very kind and decent. This should not surprise you. They also tend to vote liberal, mostly.

I'm fortunate to live in a big city! I deal with all races of people. I can't tell the difference. I see good and bad in all colors. I love diversity in culture, food, music. I guess I'm just lucky. I worry about bigger things, like equality, healthcare for all, fair pay, peace! Not what color you are. I love to be loved by all!

3 Porn

This is actually really bad for you. It's like taking alcohol or drugs. At first, it gives you degrading pleasure, then starts an addiction. Don't let this addiction grow. It sexualizes the opposite gender as materials, like a super cool-looking car, but not as a person.

All you have to do is look away the first times you even glimpse it. If you're struggling through it, ask God to help you. If it's really bad, ask someone you trust to help discipline yourself and detoxicate. If porn is banned altogether, we wouldn't have these problems.

4 Bullying

I've been bullied before, as have many others, and I don't understand why people do it. If you pick on someone who's different from you, does that make you better than them? Does it make you feel better about yourself knowing that you've done harm to someone who did nothing to you or anyone else? No, it makes you less of a person!

People commit suicide because of these individuals, and what really angers me is that the school system doesn't care one bit. They completely ignore it, and if they even acknowledge it, they don't even try to help the victim. God forbid the day that the victim fights back and dares to hurt the bully. Because that looks bad on the school! This proves that schools never care about mental health.

5 Animal Cruelty

I hate how people are cruel to them. Animal abusers are idiotic cowards who don't think about how they would feel if they were abused.

If you hurt animals, I hope you endure the worst torture to ever exist, and I hate you.

I hate everyone who hurts animals. The same thing should happen to them.

6 Drugs

Drugs damage not just people, but their families, friends, and relationships. They ruin lives, and they are still used carelessly? Drugs are not "cool," they are deadly. I wish the government did more to keep drugs out of America.

Are you insane, people? I'm aware that criminalizing drugs has some disadvantages, but think about it: legalizing it would have much bigger disadvantages. While criminalizing it, a small number of people die from overdoses, but if it was legalized, the number would increase.

7 War

Wow! If we had not invaded Iraq, we would all have new schools, roads, bridges, healthcare, money for college, daycare. This is the STUPIDEST THING, and will hurt us for many years to recover from the MORONS that got us into Iraq!

Without stupid wars, how can the Republicans win and line their pockets? It's not like they are so smart. Vote for them, you dummies. They love idiots and trailer park trash. Tornado bait...

What if silly wars were started, and we refused to fight? Would Ted Cruz fight? John McCain? Or would they start a draft? Would you sue?

8 Internet Pop-Ups

I've gotten rid of them now, but before, I couldn't do anything on the computer I use without two ads popping up every three minutes. It's hard to play Super Smash Flash 2 like that. One time, a pop-up ad even replaced the tab I was on.

Internet pop-ups are really annoying things that appear unexpectedly when you are browsing through websites. It's funny when you are told that you've won a million dollars. But there are some embarrassing situations when you're looking at a website with someone and inappropriate things jump out.

9 Anti-Abortion Laws

They say they are valuing them both. But are you really? How are you valuing the woman? Who could die, who may not be fit or old enough to raise a child, who got raped? And how are you valuing the newborn? Who is now being raised in an inconvenient, possibly dangerous household. Who may be born with defects or have difficulty developing. I'm not pro-abortion. I'm pro-choice.

There is NO scientific or medical proof supporting that we are even close to realizing when a fetus becomes a human. Absolutely NO PROOF. Scream at me all you want. It does not exist.

And as Ronald Reagan once said (and I'm paraphrasing), "… Since we don't know, let us err on the side of life".

He also said (and this one is a direct quote) that, "I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born".

It puzzles me, constantly, that the liberal-minded side of the argument isn't the one fighting for pro-life. Every other liberal-minded argument is FOR life, not AGAINST it. I just don't understand the morality behind these beliefs.

10 Republicans

I like to look at the political spectrum as a list from one to ten, with 1 being right-wing/conservative and 10 being left-wing/liberal. I would say 60% of people my age (perhaps more) are in the liberal zone. The overwhelming majority in the 10 range are elderly people who do not understand the US or much about current events. These far fighters have, instead, a very outdated view of the world. Many rightist politicians are homophobic and act as though gay marriage is some sort of sin against God. For their information, the bible does not say a thing about gay marriage. Only more recently have homophobic religious leaders falsely interpreted it to be so.

They are constantly urging Americans to get involved in costly international affairs. I'm not talking about Europe or Asia, I'm talking about hopeless war zones like Sudan and Libya. The United States has no diplomatic ties with Libya, nor does the average American care what is going on over there, the same with Sudan. The only country America should be involved in right now is Syria, which is right now a blood-stained battlefield between two genocidal parties (not to mention they beheaded four of our citizens). But even with Syria, a limited war fought with mostly air strikes would be in America's best interest, contrary to conservative claims. They also defend Israel no matter what they do, criticizing the left for not helping save them from the "evil Muslims" or whatever. While Israel is America's only semi-reliable ally in the region, there has been conflict there for millennia, and all the diplomacy in the world could not do a thing about it.

The outdated Republican philosophy also applies to domestic issues. They openly despise "youth culture" and modernization, homosexuals, labor unions, progressives, and anyone who has ever had an abortion (which they and the church consider some sort of international war crime for reasons that escape me). They refuse to cooperate on most issues and create... more

The Contenders
11 Sexism

Men are not perfect, but women aren't either. Both genders are equal and neither deserve to be discriminated against.

Gender is not important to be fighting over. It's not a problem if someone is a woman or a man. Treat them equally.

12 Alcoholic Drinks

Alcohol does more harm than good. It causes a person to lose their ability to think and act with intelligence. Some may argue that alcohol has some benefits, but beware, the consequences outweigh the benefits. If you still don't agree, then maybe we should look at the number of innocent people who die as a result of drunk drivers. We should also look at how much crime is related to alcohol. Take my word, alcoholic drinks are not proving to be as beneficial to society as one might think.

Honestly, guys, there are people who drink responsibly, but then there are others who drink irresponsibly. This ends up in car accidents, domestic violence, etc. If alcohol is banned, it is better for society as a whole. Yeah, sure, you might not want to give up your beer, but it would be worth it if it benefits society. There would be a decrease in crimes, and we wouldn't have to worry about drunk drivers crashing into a car filled with little children.

13 Abuse of Women

It should be abuse in general. I hate that a lot of people forget that women can be abusers too.

Do you mean like the Republican Party abuses women? With policies of the past... the long-ago past?

What a great world it would be if all the Democrat women ran it.

14 Pollution

This counts for all types of pollution: noise, air, water, and waste pollution. It causes bad things to happen on Earth, and if it doesn't stop, the ozone layer will be gone, and the sun will burn everything up. There will be no clean drinking water, and people will die from inhaling carbon monoxide in the air, among other things.

We totally should ban the V8 in cars, and if I decided, I would have banned all cars.

15 Censorship

The only reason I could see this not getting banned is because of 4chan, which already has a no-censorship rule. We all know how 4chan is, and I'm scared that everything will turn into that.

Literally, censorship is the stupidest thing ever. Stopping someone from speaking just because they have a different opinion to you negates the purpose of being able to speak at all. Nothing was made to be unopposed. It's okay to have different beliefs. Instead of censoring beliefs you think are wrong, debate like adults!

16 Rape

This is already banned in most countries, and this should be higher on the list, at least in the top 5. How is this lower than internet pop-ups?

Umm, I think this is probably already banned in every country. Just because you ban it doesn't mean it won't happen, unfortunately.

Rape is a serious crime. It involves sexual intercourse in a violent, unwanted, and forceful way. It can lead to pain, arrest, and death.

17 Homophobia
18 Lying

This is already one of the Ten Commandments: Thou shalt not lie. Taking the blame for someone else is a bad idea unless it has serious consequences.

I used to lie to myself about how great America is. Now, I observe how poorly it treats its own people, involves decent young men in silly wars, the economic inequality, bankruptcy for healthcare, the fraud at the top, how minorities are treated, and women too. Let's just say, let's all observe.

Republicans lie to you big time! All they are and will ever be is a rich white male club, pro-corporate, big oil, big pharma, pro-war business. That's all! Don't believe the rest! It's anti-women, minorities, middle class, immigrants, gays, environmental. It's that simple! They just want your vote! And screw you! Dummies.

19 Inequality

Another instance of inequality is how news is reported. Hillary Clinton has as much blood on her hands as Trump, yet he gets four times as much media attention because the liberal-biased CBS, NBC, and ABC all hate his guts and want to see him trashed as much as possible while trying to make Hillary appear squeaky clean. There needs to be more balance in how news is reported through the media, starting by getting rid of the triplet liberal programs CBS News, NBC News, and ABC News.

I just read Hard Choice by Hillary Clinton. A positive read. A bargain at 24.50. It mentions inequality. Seems she pulls for women all over!

20 YouTube Ads

Practical info - If you want to get rid of YouTube ads (and all sites), install Ad Block programs/extensions - there are many, and they are free. Activate, install or add the extension AdBlock to Google Chrome. I haven't seen ads on YouTube videos for about 2 years thanks to it. Once, I saw that AdBlock blocked 83 ads on a site! It works!

Sometimes, you may be watching the most kid-friendly video ever, and then the most adult ad ever shows up.

One time I saw an ad that was dirty and it had swearing in it. What if my 8-year-old brother was watching it?

21 Discrimination

I will never understand why marijuana is not legalized. I know it helps epilepsy patients a great deal. I think it's just done to discriminate against minorities!

I don't support either political party, but I love how all these Democrats are talking about how Republicans discriminate like that's totally not all they do themselves.

Republicans discriminate against everybody that does not think like them! And America is so much more varied, complex, and tolerant!

22 Abortion

I know someone who had a child at 15/16 and didn't get an abortion. Now that child has children themselves. They're good people. Abortion destroys lives. It's murder. The earth is not overpopulating. In the next few centuries, we'd be able to live in Antarctica and the oceans. The Americas and Oceania themselves can fit way more people.

Sarcasm mode activated

Oh, let's make abortion mandatory so humans go extinct!

Sarcasm mode deactivated

Yeah, that's what would happen if abortion was made mandatory. The human race would be gone in 120 years or less. Let's do the opposite and ban abortion.

23 Police Brutality

Serve justice instead of hurting and killing people.

24 Anti-Gun Laws

You cannot make law-abiding citizens safer by taking away their guns. That's been proven over and over again. Everywhere in the world where they have strict gun control, the violent crime rate has risen. Everywhere, without exception. And yet people still think they can make the world safer by outlawing guns. The lack of logical thought regarding guns by the left, which usually has intellectual superiority as its hallmark, boggles the mind.

People who think there should be no guns aren't thinking at all. Criminals will get their hands on guns one way or another, just like how they get their hands on drugs. All it will do is disarm the law-abiding citizen and make them vulnerable. Let's face it, I'd feel much safer with a gun in my house.
