Here are the first round of cx (sorry there's tons of Qs):

 

1. Why vote aff?

2. What are the impacts to not doing the plan?

3. What do submarine cables do?

4. Which governmental agency is the BOEM a part of? The DOI right? That’s what Wikipedia says

5. When is your (only) solvency card from? In the solvency contention I mean. (Not to be picky but when citing you cant just give a url)

6. If this is such a great plan then why hasn’t it happened yet?

7. What’s to prevent it from happening in the squo?

8. How do we know that the BOEM can implement undersea cables? What expertise does it have in the area?

9. How will your cables be better than those of the squo?

10. Who is in charge of the cables now?

11. Where will the cables be?

12. Are you just going to use the existing cables? If so, then how does the squo not solve?

13. Walk me through how the squo doesn’t solve pls

14. Is your plan an increase from the squo, yes or no?

 

Adv 1

15. What’s the warrant to “positioning, information processing and security make it the best actor” in your Burghardt 13 card? Find me a line.

16. What’s the impact to outages?

17. How do US EEZ cables solve for problems in international zones?

Adv 2

18. What is causing Puerto Rico’s economic decline right now?

19. In McDonald 14 how does re-pricing the municipal bond market crash the stock market? Also how does a falling stock market crash the economy?

20. What’s the threshold on stock market lows crashing the econ?

21. In John Marino 14, doesn’t it say that “The CARIBBEAN BUSINESS plan to bring electric power to Puerto Rico from Florida via a 1,000-mile undersea cable is the quickest and surest way we have to bring down electricity rates in Puerto Rico” mean that plan (to be enacted in the squo) solves this advantage? How is your specific mechanism (have the USFG do it) going to solve for this but not the squo?

22. So to save the Puerto Rican econ, we need low energy prices? How low is the threshold on energy prices?

23. Why can ONLY undersea cables solve? (A line would be nice since that was the tag.)

24. How do low energy prices save the Puerto Rican econ?

1. Why vote aff?

 

To prevent a loss of $1 trillion to the banking industry. To continue trade, politics, stability and to prevent problems in the Strait of Malacca, the Strait of Luzon and the South China Sea and to save Puerto Rico's economy. 

 

2. What are the impacts to not doing the plan?

 

Answer is above.

 

3. What do submarine cables do?

 

Essentially they safely transfer information between governmental agencies, governments and economies and transfer energy from green tech. 

 

4. Which governmental agency is the BOEM a part of? The DOI right? That’s what Wikipedia says           

 

United States Department of the Interior.

 

5. When is your (only) solvency card from? In the solvency contention I mean. (Not to be picky but when citing you cant just give a url)                                                           It’s from the Bureau of Ocean Energy management from a hearing before our congress in 2012.

 

6. If this is such a great plan then why hasn’t it happened yet?
Attitudinal Barrier. Other things a prioritized more in the SQ. Also until recently there weren’t problems so it didn’t need to be addressed. U.S. only fixes things when they are a substantial problem.

 

7. What’s to prevent it from happening in the squo? Answered above.

 

8. How do we know that the BOEM can implement undersea cables? What expertise does it have in the area?

 

We know they can implement because in the hearing stated above the EPA recommended that BOEM do it. So they have jurisdiction. Expertise is that they handle energy projects that deal with underwater energy cables in the SQ so they know how to handle cables. 

 

9. How will your cables be better than those of the squo?

 

They will be monitored better, positioned better and secured by the USFG. Privates don’t have security on their cables.

 

10. Who is in charge of the cables now?

 

Privates.

 

11. Where will the cables be?

 

US EEZ

 

12. Are you just going to use the existing cables? NO, Governmental Cables.

 

If so, then how does the squo not solve? SQ doesn’t solve because they can’t keep up with demand, cables have no oversight. 

 

13. Walk me through how the squo doesn’t solve pls

 

Essentially, the current cables are not interconnected and a patchwork of different privates. We integrate a sort of grid for U.S. government cables and data. We also protect our cables and position them better. 

 

14. Is your plan an increase from the squo, yes or no?

 

We are an increase of the government not the current private SQ.

 

 

 

Adv 1

 

15. What’s the warrant to “positioning, information processing and security make it the best actor” in your Burghardt 13 card? Find me a line.

 

IT says the US gov is well positioned, can amass unprecedented volumes of info, and has systems in place to be able to do it securely.

 

16. What’s the impact to outages?

 

Banking industry, Strait of Malacca, South China Sea and econ.

 

17. How do US EEZ cables solve for problems in international zones?

 

Problem is on our side. We are not connecting with nations due to badly secured cables. 

 

Adv 2

 

18. What is causing Puerto Rico’s economic decline right now?

 

Debt. 

19. In McDonald 14 how does re-pricing the municipal bond market crash the stock market? Also how does a falling stock market crash the economy?

 

It causes a default because their is no investor confidence. If the stock market gets to low econ crashes because people withdraw money.

 

20. What’s the threshold on stock market lows crashing the econ?

 

Recession?

21. In John Marino 14, doesn’t it say that “The CARIBBEAN BUSINESS plan to bring electric power to Puerto Rico from Florida via a 1,000-mile undersea cable is the quickest and surest way we have to bring down electricity rates in Puerto Rico” mean that plan (to be enacted in the squo) solves this advantage?

 

No, because the cables the SQ uses are inefficient so they won’t provide the electricity that Puerto Rico needs to solve. 

 

How is your specific mechanism (have the USFG do it) going to solve for this but not the squo?

 

We are safer, more efficient and actually transfer it correctly.

 

22. So to save the Puerto Rican econ, we need low energy prices? Yes. How low is the threshold on energy prices? Low enough for investors to not pull out the money.

23. Why can ONLY undersea cables solve? (A line would be nice since that was the tag.)

 

Bringing electricity back to Puerto Rico would fix it and undersea cables are the fastest way given location.

 

24. How do low energy prices save the Puerto Rican econ?

 

Essentially, there is investor confidence so they invest allowing Puerto Rico to not default on debt and crash the economy.

1. Why vote aff?

 

To prevent a loss of $1 trillion to the banking industry. To continue trade, politics, stability and to prevent problems in the Strait of Malacca, the Strait of Luzon and the South China Sea and to save Puerto Rico's economy. 

Why should we care if the banking industry loses money? Why should we care if trade, politics, and stability get messed up in the Strait of Malacca, Luzon, and the SCS? Why should we care if PR or even the US econ collapses?

 

2. What are the impacts to not doing the plan?

 

Answer is above.

2nd question is above. lol

 

3. What do submarine cables do?

 

Essentially they safely transfer information between governmental agencies, governments and economies and transfer energy from green tech. 

So in the squo, crucial information to the USFG and the nation's economy is being handled haphazardly by privates and the USFG is doing nothing?

 

4. Which governmental agency is the BOEM a part of? The DOI right? That’s what Wikipedia says           

 

United States Department of the Interior.

 

5. When is your (only) solvency card from? In the solvency contention I mean. (Not to be picky but when citing you cant just give a url)                                                           It’s from the Bureau of Ocean Energy management from a hearing before our congress in 2012.

 

6. If this is such a great plan then why hasn’t it happened yet?

Attitudinal Barrier. Other things a prioritized more in the SQ. Also until recently there weren’t problems so it didn’t need to be addressed. U.S. only fixes things when they are a substantial problem.

So this is not a substantial problem? And other problems come first? Ok.

 

7. What’s to prevent it from happening in the squo? Answered above.

 

8. How do we know that the BOEM can implement undersea cables? What expertise does it have in the area?

 

We know they can implement because in the hearing stated above the EPA recommended that BOEM do it. So they have jurisdiction. Expertise is that they handle energy projects that deal with underwater energy cables in the SQ so they know how to handle cables. 

What line says that the EPA recommends that the BOEM implement cables? All I see is stuff that BOEM should monitor private activity.

 

9. How will your cables be better than those of the squo?

 

They will be monitored better, positioned better and secured by the USFG. Privates don’t have security on their cables.

Which ev says these things? Find me a line.

 

10. Who is in charge of the cables now?

 

Privates.

 

11. Where will the cables be?

 

US EEZ

 

12. Are you just going to use the existing cables?

NO, Governmental Cables.

What are these? What ev says that these exist, are ready for use, and can solve better?

 

If so, then how does the squo not solve? SQ doesn’t solve because they can’t keep up with demand, cables have no oversight. 

 

13. Walk me through how the squo doesn’t solve pls

 

Essentially, the current cables are not interconnected and a patchwork of different privates. We integrate a sort of grid for U.S. government cables and data. We also protect our cables and position them better. 

What ev says you protect and position better?

 

14. Is your plan an increase from the squo, yes or no?

 

We are an increase of the government not the current private SQ.

Ok I got u. No T-increase here.

 

 

 

Adv 1

 

15. What’s the warrant to “positioning, information processing and security make it the best actor” in your Burghardt 13 card? Find me a line.

 

IT says the US gov is well positioned, can amass unprecedented volumes of info, and has systems in place to be able to do it securely.

But how does that make it the best actor? Sure, they are good at reading cables but how do we know that they can put them in place securely? Also, if they have security systems in place right now then why aren't cables secure?

 

 

16. What’s the impact to outages?

 

Banking industry, Strait of Malacca, South China Sea and econ.

See question #1.

 

17. How do US EEZ cables solve for problems in international zones?

 

Problem is on our side. We are not connecting with nations due to badly secured cables.

Which piece of ev says that? A line, please.

 

Adv 2

 

18. What is causing Puerto Rico’s economic decline right now?

 

Debt. 

Caused by? Also, how do low energy prices alleviate debt?

 

19. In McDonald 14 how does re-pricing the municipal bond market crash the stock market? Also how does a falling stock market crash the economy?

 

It causes a default because their is no investor confidence. If the stock market gets to low econ crashes because people withdraw money.

 

20. What’s the threshold on stock market lows crashing the econ?

 

Recession?

But like--how bad does it have to get to have a full scale collapse?

 

21. In John Marino 14, doesn’t it say that “The CARIBBEAN BUSINESS plan to bring electric power to Puerto Rico from Florida via a 1,000-mile undersea cable is the quickest and surest way we have to bring down electricity rates in Puerto Rico” mean that plan (to be enacted in the squo) solves this advantage?

 

No, because the cables the SQ uses are inefficient so they won’t provide the electricity that Puerto Rico needs to solve. 

So then this piece of evidence is false? It can't solve?

 

How is your specific mechanism (have the USFG do it) going to solve for this but not the squo?

 

We are safer, more efficient and actually transfer it correctly.

Again, what ev supports this?

 

22. So to save the Puerto Rican econ, we need low energy prices? Yes. How low is the threshold on energy prices? Low enough for investors to not pull out the money. Umm okay but like whats the brink

 

23. Why can ONLY undersea cables solve? (A line would be nice since that was the tag.)

 

Bringing electricity back to Puerto Rico would fix it and undersea cables are the fastest way given location.

What ev says its the only way to do it? A line pls.

 

24. How do low energy prices save the Puerto Rican econ?

 

Essentially, there is investor confidence so they invest allowing Puerto Rico to not default on debt and crash the economy. 

 

 

4 more questions (EDIT-- the 4 below and all the bolded ones above) and then depending on the answers I get I will post the 1nc:

 

Will US economic collapse alone cause war?

Timeframe on the Puerto Rico advantage?

Timeframe until cables get disrupted?

Are you exploration or development?

Why should we care if the banking industry loses money? Why should we care if trade, politics, and stability get messed up in the Strait of Malacca, Luzon, and the SCS? Why should we care if PR or even the US econ collapses?

We care if the banking industry loses money because it affects investors and how they invest in Puerto Rico. We should care if trade, politics and stability get messed up because it is a major trade hub and key to the region’s economy. We should care about PR because it affects the US econ and we should care about an econ collapse because it affects us internationally and domestically.

 

So in the squo, crucial information to the USFG and the nation's economy is being handled haphazardly by privates and the USFG is doing nothing?

Yes, that is correct.

So this is not a substantial problem? And other problems come first? Ok.

It is. The issue is the U.S. policy of austerity and budget cuts right now. The USFG is prioritizing things that are having immediate short term impacts rather than long term impacts.

 What line says that the EPA recommends that the BOEM implement cables? All I see is stuff that BOEM should monitor private activity.

NEPA which is mentioned in the card is part of EPA.

How will your cables be better than those of the squo? Which ev says these things? Find me a line.

US government key–positioning, information processing and security make it the best actor

Burghardt 13–Police State America Researcher (Tom Burghardt, “Documents Show Undersea Cable Firms Provide Surveillance Access to US Secret State,” Global Research, http://www.globalresearch.ca/documents-show-undersea-cable-firms-provide-surveillance-access-to-us-secret-state/5343173, 7/18/14, AMJ)

Whatever submarine operations NSA still carry out with the US Navy and “Five Eyes” surveillance partners (Australia, Britain, Canada, New Zealand and the US), access to information flowing through undersea cables mean that the US government is well-positioned to scoop-up virtually all global communications.¶ Since former NSA contractor Edward Snowden began spilling the beans last month, it should be clear that the American government’s capabilities in amassing unprecedented volumes of information from cable traffic, also potentially hands the US and their corporate collaborators a treasure trove of sensitive economic secrets from competitors. Reporting by Australian journalists confirm information published July 6 by The Washington Post. There we learned that overseas submarine cable companies doing business in the United States must maintain “an internal corporate cell of American citizens with government clearances,” a cadre of personnel whose job is to ensure that “when US government agencies seek access to the massive amounts of data flowing through their networks, they have systems in place to provide it securely.”

But how does that make it the best actor? Sure, they are good at reading cables but how do we know that they can put them in place securely? Also, if they have security systems in place right now then why aren't cables secure?

It makes it the best actor because they can securely do it. They can put them in place securely because it says the government has the systems to do so. What the last line is saying is that overall government cables security is good and the networks would be secure. They aren’t secure now because the privates do it.

Problem is on our side. We are not connecting with nations due to badly secured cables.

Which piece of ev says that? A line, please.

Evidence about SQ problems. I can also bring additional extensions in my next speech.

Puerto Rico debt Caused by? Also, how do low energy prices alleviate debt?

Economic miscalc by their government. It not necessarily the energy prices but more that the connection would allow them to sell the energy. It is in Marino ’14.

But like--how bad does it have to get to have a full scale collapse?

A recession would have to happen before the collapse.

 So then this piece of evidence is false? It can't solve?

It’s not false as in not real but it indicates that there was an idea but it won’t solve showing the need for the affirmative.

So to save the Puerto Rican econ, we need low energy prices? Yes. How low is the threshold on energy prices? Low enough for investors to not pull out the money. Umm okay but like whats the brink

Case has terminal impact.

Why can ONLY undersea cables solve? (A line would be nice since that was the tag.)

It talks about how undersea cables would be the catalyst. LINE: President Eduardo Bhatia said the undersea cable should be seriously considered, as it could serve as a catalyst for Puerto Rico to become an energy leader

What ev says its the only way to do it? A line pls.

Line in Marino ’14: "This is an island, 100 miles by 35 miles, and we aren't connected with anybody.

 

 

4 more questions (EDIT-- the 4 below and all the bolded ones above) and then depending on the answers I get I will post the 1nc:

 

Will US economic collapse alone cause war?

Yes, given how important the U.S. is geopolitically.

Timeframe on the Puerto Rico advantage?

Terminal.

Timeframe until cables get disrupted?

Don’t have a definitive time frame.

Are you exploration or development?

Development. Putting cable in water.

Cross X Questions

How do we measure political capital?

On AAAS'13 where does it warrant it is unpopular? All it says is that is was cut in 2013. 

On nuclear war impact, does the negative assume nothing will be done to prevent nuke war? 

How much sprawl does the aff cause? 

Given the government is the actor of the plan wouldn't they ensure that the plan didn't interfere with military zones? 

What zone does the aff specifically collapse to lead to global war?

What is the CSRIC?

Are topical counterplans good? 

What is the net benefit to the CP?
How is the CP mutually exclusive?

Isn't addresing something the same as doing it? 

Also doesn't Burghardt '13 warrant that U.S. is better positioned and safer? 

Where does 1ac evidence say U.S. is doing undersea cables?

Also doesn't safety systems refer to us security with connections overall?

If the status quo is unsafe and the government could do it safely how does that not make them a better actor?

Cross X Questions

How do we measure political capital?

His ability to sway other members of the govt

On AAAS'13 where does it warrant it is unpopular? All it says is that is was cut in 2013. 

If the Republicans are dead set on cutting it, and you want to increase, then that's unpopular.

On nuclear war impact, does the negative assume nothing will be done to prevent nuke war? 

Same on your side... And we don't say anything about that as of the 1NC.

How much sprawl does the aff cause? 

Well, you said yourself that they won't use the existing cables, they will put in new cables, and there will be more, so there will obviously be increased activity, especially with the govt just developing a ton.

Given the government is the actor of the plan wouldn't they ensure that the plan didn't interfere with military zones? 

No, they don't communicate / plan well with the military, if you question this I have ev on this for the block.

What zone does the aff specifically collapse to lead to global war?

I don't understand what you mean. I'm saying that your plan trades off with military training and then we will lose readiness...

What is the CSRIC?

Aw shoot, didn't see it was federal. My b

Are topical counterplans good? 

I don't think so, sorry. Didn't see CSRIC was federal. I'm kicking that part of the cp. Just the carribean business plan, just Marino as a solvency advocate.

What is the net benefit to the CP?

Politics

How is the CP mutually exclusive?

The Caribbean business part is but the CSRIC isn't, sorry, I'm kicking the CSRIC my b

Isn't addresing something the same as doing it?

No. Especially since the ev calls for them to do an enviro impact statement.

Also doesn't Burghardt '13 warrant that U.S. is better positioned and safer? 

"Better positioned and safer" means that they are comparatively better than something else (i guess you would try to say then private companies). But nowhere in the card does it warrant that they are comparatively better. Also, "when US government agencies seek access to the massive amounts of data flowing through their networks, they have systems in place to provide it securely" means that they already can provide it securely in the squo.

Where does 1ac evidence say U.S. is doing undersea cables?

Not that they are operating them but that they are using them

Also doesn't safety systems refer to us security with connections overall?

What do u mean

If the status quo is unsafe and the government could do it safely how does that not make them a better actor? 

The Burghardt card specifically talks about their systems currently in place to provide it securely, meaning that they can do it securely in the squo.

first cx question:

it's okay to split the block right? as in take t, a disad, and case in the 2nc, then another disad and the cp in th 1nr? your not gonna claim "he's saying new things in the 1nr" cause I split the block?

 

also, if you drop something in constructives, should you be allowed to make new answers in rebuttals?

more cx

 

POLITICS

 

1. What's your point on the PC issue? Unless I explain what PC is and how it is central to the issue, then we don't win this disad (is that what you are saying)?

 

2. How do say "there's no definition of PC" then have a definition in your next card? I'm looking at "political capital": the thought that a President has a limited and discrete amount of influence over Congress and the broader political debate"

 

3. Why criticize us for being generic for the Politics (edit-- and the Ocean Sprawl) Disad then go on to use cards that could be used with ANY POLITICS DISAD ON ANY RESOLUTION EVER?

 

4. What's the warrant to Epton? It seems to me like the only "warrant" to Epton is that it seems like Obama should have tons of PC but doesn't really bc of the things he hasn't passed and so its much more complicated than that.

 

5. Even if you win that PC is not a thing, what implications for this disad does that have?

 

TOPICALITY

 

6. On T, so "development" equals "change" with regard to things such as "economic, social, political, legal and institutional structures, technology in various forms (including the physical or natural sciences, engineering and communications), the environment, religion, the arts and culture"?

 

7. What's the "brightline" you provide?

 

8. What does the "Framer's intent" line mean?

 

9. What do you mean by the "Grammar" line?

 

10. What is the point of putting in your "counter-standards"?

 

11. What do you mean by "

Voters: Apriori, jurisdiction, and education. Also no neg t voters"?

 

OCEAN SPACES DA

 

12. Where does it say spacial planning solves sprawl?

 

13. Furthermore, how are you warranted in saying that planning solves sprawl when the next sentence says "Although significant progress has been made on national ocean planning over the past four years, efforts across the nation to improve information sharing and coordination among ocean users are inconsistent"

 

14. How does the Kappel 9 card address planning between the USFG and the miltary? All I see is about ecosystem management. Furthermore, if you are attacking uniqueness, then why should we believe your '09 ev that says "this problem is solved" over our '14 ev that says "this is still a problem"?

 

COUNTERPLAN

 

15. What's bad about having a cp that is a moving target? Where do you say this in the speech?

 

16. Why do you think that the PR govt will finance a project by privates?

 

17. If it's so easy to perm the CP then why didn't you?

 

18. Why read the Caribbean Business 14 card? Where does it say that Puerto Rico can't afford to fund the plan? Isn't this another solvency advocate for the plan? It says that PREPA can't finance it, that's why CB is key to do it.

 

CASE

 

19. Are you honestly trying to tell me that your card saying "With respect to NEPA, undersea cable activity is “reasonably foreseeable” and should therefore be addressed by BOEM as such in revisions to Alternatives A and B. BOEM should add conclusions that vessel traffic, grab-and-core sampling, buoy founding and anchoring, and well drilling and any other activities iv under Alternatives A and B that may have an impact on undersea cables would be “moderate” or“major” absent further modifications" is trying to say that BOEM should put in their own cables? WHERE DOES IT SAY THAT?

 

20. Again, where does it say in any of your ev that the amount of cables we indicate will be enough to prevent problems (e.g. with bandwith)?

 

21. You say that we don't prove that low oil solves the econ. Is it bad to say that we can solve something without providing definite ev that what we do is enough to solve it?

 

22. On Marino 14 you say "The cable will actually get Puerto Rico out of decline because it is the quickest way to bring down electricity and help to reform PREPA.  On PREPA he says there is no evidence that they are central to the economy but if we look to their Irvin 1/9 it takes about how PREPA does 68% of the energy in Puerto Rico. So they are central. Solvency is there ." But the cable the card talks about is the Caribbean Business' cable. So then we solve this adv?

 

23. To clarify, both adv 1 scenario 1 and adv 2 have impacts that crash the econ, and Harris and Burrows is applied to both of them saying that econ decline will cause nuke war, right?

One more thing: where does the PDF say "It says that they need to take action as a federal agency to govern cables that means to implement"?

EDIT-- and what do you mean by "
Voters: Apriori, jurisdiction, and education."

Should the better T interp come down to whoever has better limits for the topic?

 

2nd edit: Does the case have a terminal impact? If so, where does it say this?
