    Thursday File 2-14-2013

    Thursday File - 2/14/2013
     
    This week's author proceeds go directly to the Vince Binder scholarship at the NAUDL. That's entirely what you get. Might as well purchase twice just to make sure you got it.
     
    As a bonus, here are over 400 pages of politics cards. You'll lose money if you don't buy it.
     
    This week's file zeros in directly on Cross-x.com's continuing scenario: Comprehensive Immigration Reform. State of the Union updates are included, as well as some fresh links, political capital theory and a dust-up of the internal links.
     
    This file was written by Chris Crowe, with massive contributions from Gabe Murillo, Josh Gonzalez, Bria Frame and past authors Colin Roark and Stephanie Garrett. Roughly one million years of debate experience, give or take a few. Please support their efforts and the NAUDL.

    Thursday File Available 2-16-12

    Buy early and often. Author proceeds will go directly to the National Association of Urban Debate Leagues' Vincent J. Binder Urban Debate Scholars Award. Your small contribution will help send debaters to camp this summer.
     
    It's a rough week for the politics disadvantage. Updates include the payroll tax cut, mortgage bill, line-item veto and a start for an elections disadvantage.
     
    The parameters of a payroll tax cut extension have been agreed upon, but if they don't manage to pass it tomorrow, you might still have a disadvantage on your hands if you can win a strong link. Some folks still seem worried it could be derailed at the last minute.
     
    Continuing series include small updates to the mortgage bill, which is a tough battle but contains a good debate about its relationship to the economy.
     
    As the election nears, agenda disadvantages will be difficult to win and you'll see many teams fall back on the elections disadvantage. I've included a "Romney Bad" scenario that relies on him merely attempting to overturn Obamacare.
