The Trump Card

Does any body have a "Trump will win in 2016 if dems lose"   I'm pretty sure if anyone had that, i would start reading politics vs. race affs and just turn them.   Cuz... Trump.

A call to Coaches

My most recent Saturday tournament (Varsity CX at Paris North Lamar in East Texas) consisted of three debates in which neither competitors nor judges knew exactly what was going on.   Why?   Because every team I competed against read a complicated advocacy of which they could not explain paired with a RoB (Roll of the Ballot) framed specifically around their advocacy. The case debate was non-existent. My case was freaking drones.   Now what is the problem with this? Its bad debate! If yo

Help me teach a freshman.

Both me and my old partner are doing our first tournament with freshman so we can teach them policy.   How do I teach a freshman policy debate?       My partner is running Foucault for the aff, but I'm thinking of running a down to earth Islamaphobia/airports aff.   Suggestions would help.

Hey guys! I was wondering if you guys have debated any of these teams in Novice division. If you have, what affirmative do they run with what advantages? They don't post themselves on the Wiki. Alpharetta High - Novice Berkeley Prep - Novice Cathedral Prep - Novice Chattahoochee - Novice Georgetown Day School - Novice Greenhill - Novice Heritage Hall - Novice Montgomery Bell - Novice Mount Vernon Presbyterian - Novice Northview - Novice Paideia - Novice R

Any tips or evidence?

So recently my partner and I went to our second varsity debate tournament and we were hit with a k aff round one, in order to stop any more utter surprises and confusions during future rounds, does anyone have any generic files to run against K affirmatives? Also can someone explain to me what a K aff is exactly and what I things i can and can't run against it? Thanks!

I'm Starting to Get the Hang of This.......I Think

So its been a week. A week of confusing acronyms. A week of not knowing what the hell everyone was saying. A week of only catching every 5 words that came out my coaches. But thank god I'm starting to get the hang of this flowing thing. Well we have been flowing the exact same thing for a week now. Its Cuban embargo with stability and democracy every single day. Aren't we killing an unnecessary amount of trees for all this copy paper that we are flowing on? Seriously this class uses like 100 pie
 

Orientation or More Accurately Intimidation.

I have made a terrible mistake. Well I didn't make the mistake it was the counselors for putting me in here because there was nothing else open this hour. I don't know how to debate, heck I don't even know what we are supposed to be debating. This is 7th hour after all I could just skip this class all year and walk home. But, wait I'm too much of a goody two shoes for that. So looks like the rest of the semester will be spent just like today, sitting on this chair scared out of my wits and hopin
 

Judging Paradigms

CrossX.com is great for many CX reasons. There should be a tabbed section for people to post their judging paradigms online and list the tournaments they have judged, references etc. There may already be such a system in place. If so, please tell me how to find it. I know how to get such info on two other sites, but having everything on one CX site would be AWESOME! Please help. Send a link or support this blog entry by agreeing with it. If enough users want it, it is more likely to be added. Th

Marquette debate institute camp... its two weeks and cheaper, but is it any good? K? pros/cons? 3. Texas Universi

Ld Jan/feb Resolution Aff Help

I affirm the resolution that the United States ought to value rehabilitation over retribution in the criminal justice system. Hi guys, so this is my case for the January LD topic and I have to say that I feel greatly disadvantaged when I debate on the Affirmative. I feel like this resolution gives more options for the NEG and its a lot easier to argue on the NEG. The first philosophy I studied was the Veil of Ignorance and Rawls' views on Justice and I have developed a liking towards them. I kn
