Thursday File - 12/5

About This File

This week's Thursday file contains two viable scenarios - the farm bill and Iran sanctions.


Farm bill - the existing farm bill will expire at the end of the calendar year. If a new bill doesn't get passed by then food prices will spike and we get to see our own version of The Hunger Games. Seriously though, it would be bad for food prices and the file includes extensive evidence backing that up.


Iran sanctions - While a preliminary deal may have been reached, Congress wants to pass a package of sanctions that will be triggered if Iran reneges on the deal. Your argument is that such a package would signal that our negotiations were in bad faith and collapse the deal, enabling Iran prolif.


The file also includes affirmative answers to these scenarios and other DAs like immigration reform and ENDA,


Good luck this weekend and may the odds be ever in your favor,



I debated for four years at Groves High School in Beverly Hills, MI. During my senior year I debated almost exclusively on the national circuit, reaching elimination rounds at East Grand Rapids, New Trier, and Harvard. I have debated for four years at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI, clearing at regional and national tournaments and during the 2011-12 season qualifying for the NDT. As a coach for Seaholm High School my debaters have reached elimination rounds at local and national tournaments.
