  1. Looks like you can still order all teh Solt classics- http://www.oneparadigm.com/catalog2010.pdf
  2. "As for Scotty's hostility to me" What? This is my only comment to you in its entirety- "Setting aside temporarily all of Jim/Batterman's points-Duane, most schools won't experience the thrill because, in the words of Connor MacLeod, there can be only 1. Many schools with boatloads of resources never experience the thrill either. I guess I just don't see what solution is pointed to by your comments. Do you think schools that have resources should be stripped of them so that schools who don't have the resources have a shot at NFL?"
  3. "I am not inclined to sit by while you bash someone who has twice your positive reputation" "That a lot of folks participate in this "project" has nothing to do with its ethical implications. "If a million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing," etc." Terrance you have managed to contradict yourself and display your idiocy in an even smaller number of posts than usual. Bravo. "Disagree with that philosophy if you will, but please don't make the architects of its subversion out to be some sort of folk-heroes..." Saying doing something against the rules is different from something not against the rules is not an attempt to make someone a folk hero.
  4. "I think it's a real shame that the large majority of debate programs will never know the thrill of a national championship in policy debate because they lack the funds necesary to compete at the top levels" Setting aside temporarily all of Jim/Batterman's points-Duane, most schools won't experience the thrill because, in the words of Connor MacLeod, there can be only 1. Many schools with boatloads of resources never experience the thrill either. I guess I just don't see what solution is pointed to by your comments. Do you think schools that have resources should be stripped of them so that schools who don't have the resources have a shot at NFL?
  5. Obama plans to leave 50,000 troops in even in his plans for "withdrawal". This issue is also addressed in topic paper/all of Stefan's articles.

    Table of Contents This TF focuses on 2 main disads- Financial Reform and Don't Ask Don't Tell. The relative strengths of each are:1. DADT- There is really 1 dominant affirmative answer to this disad- that repeal will be delayed so that the military can conduct a study. There are a few tricks in here to deal with this argument making this disad solid.2. Financial reform- probably has the best uniqueness for an Obama good DA as there is evidence that indicates this is one issue the republicans might not try and be obstructionist on.Virtually every politics disad right now is plagued by the same problem though- there aren't actual "bills" for any of these agenda items yet. There is a lot of specific aff evidence for these DA's as well as START, Jobs, and Health Care Reform. Updates on the uniueness for the mid terms agenda disad and top level both ways also included.

    Table of Contents This TF is worth the wait. This morning I did not have a DA I would be willing to put my name on but some recent health care developments have taken it from awful to awesome. There is now a lot of uniqueness evidence (from both sides) concluding that health care will pass by a razor thin margin and making pretty good internal link claims about how Obama must exert all his leverage to keep it from falling apart. Probably the best brink evidence this disad has ever had. There is also great evidence that says the final bill that comes out of conference will be the real deal – meaning you can access all those public option impacts like economy/bioterror etc. All other scenarios are realistically unwinnable given the evidence that Obama is putting everything he has behind health care, which is also probably a social service- and that most predictions say all congressional debate for the remainder of the year will be about health care. Also- a TF First- the file is done using Debate Synergy so anyone debating paperless should be able to able to e-tub it and go right out of the box. ******In the past when I changed my template files have been messed up when people downloaded them, so if anything goes wrong with this download please let me know ASAP.

  10. Is it possible to have multiple expando buttons on the toolbar, maybe that store to different folders, so at least you could have rudimentary division- like aff/neg/k?

    Table of Contents Having gotten a little annoyed at the proliferation of "do nothing" K arguments I decided to... do something about it.Included here are some specific responses to this alt and the various anti-cap arguments usually employed with it. This evidence is specific to the most common cap K alt you will here and is not from Robinson (in fact all the zizek cards are from 08 and assume his most recent works). A short taste: Under the cover of comedy and hyperbole, in between allusions to movies and video games, he is engaged in the rehabilitation of many of the most evil ideas of the last century. He is trying to undo the achievement of all the postwar thinkers who taught us to regard totalitarianism, revolutionary terror, utopian violence, and anti-Semitism as inadmissible in serious political discourse. Is Žižek's audience too busy laughing at him to hear him? I hope so, because the idea that they can hear him without recoiling from him is too dismal, and frightening, to contemplate.
