    Thursday File - 12/5

    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,
    BGM

    Thursday File - 10/31

    This week's Thursday file is all treats, no tricks. It updates the immigration reform disad that has been developing over the past few weeks, including plenty of cards from the past couple days that will help you scare your opponents into submission. Also included are affirmative answers to immigration, the Iran DA, and some other disads that have been creeping their way into the college debate circuit like the TPA, Farm Bill, and the 2014 midterms DAs. As an added bonus, I have included a new uniqueness card for the China SOI DA, as well as some random impact updates I have found in the last few weeks. Think of this as a king size candy bar at a fun size price. Happy Halloween, all! Hope to see you in Ann Arbor this weekend.

    Thursday File - September 19th

    The debate regarding raising the US's debt limit remains at the top of Congress' and the President's agenda. This file contains updates to this scenario. The 1NC contains updates to the uniqueness debate, as well as new evidence that Obama's political capital is key to getting the debt ceiling raised. The argument you want to make is that Obama's PC will allow him to sell the idea that the debt ceiling has to be raised. Obama has said that he is unwilling to negotiate (tie raising the debt ceiling to Obamacare funding, spending cuts, etc.) so he needs his PC so that he can convince the GOP to send him a clean bill. Also included are aff answers to this as well as other popular scenarios like Syria strikes and immigration reform.
     
    As a bonus, I have included impacts on the Syria debate both ways, as well as updates to another popular DA - the China sphere of influence DA. That evidence is all from this month and includes 1NC quality evidence.

    2013 Hegemony Updates

    This file contains high-quality updates from 2013 on the hegemony debate, including:
     
    - A new terminal impact (hege solves war/prolif)
     
    - Sustainability both ways (including answers to offshore balancing)
     
    - Answers to common impact turns (China war, econ, terror)
     
    - Some A+ cards that decline is manageable/doesn't cause power vacuums
     
     
    This file is completely underlined and highlighted and well worth the price, considering the debate community isn't likely to lose its fascination with US primacy any time soon (read: you can use this file for years to come).

    2013 Warming Updates

    This is a relatively short file that contains some quick hits on the major issues related to climate change. All the cards are from 2013 and all but one is from March.
     
    Items include:
     
    - A 1AC quality card that warming is happening, caused by humans, and that now is key
     
    - Cards both ways on the study released earlier this month that volcano emissions are slowing the rate of warming
     
    - An answer to the classic "SO2 screw" (aerosol emissions prevent warming)
     
    - A new ice age link saying that CO2 prevents a new ice age, along with a famine impact to ice age
     
    - A slew of cards questioning the ideas that 1) warming is happening and 2) if it is happening, that CO2 is what is causing it

    DeDev Answers

    This file includes comprehensive answers to growth bad/dedev arguments. Everyone is reading econ advantages this year and lots of people are resorting to dedev as a generic negative strategy. My experience has taught me that when negative teams win these debates it is usually because 1) the neg has evidence on an issue and the aff does not, or 2) the aff reads crappy evidence. This file solves both of these problems - no Mead/Kerpen/Bearden/Cook evidence here. Every card in the file - including the extensions - are ones you won't be embarrassed to give to a judge when she/he is sorting out the inevitable card war. There are a ton of extensions in the file so you don't have to worry about getting out-carded. I also included a section of the file to answer the most common "tricks" that also contains some creative arguments for you to read that will give any neg team a headache.
     
     
     
    Why should I buy this file when there are perfectly good camp files out there?
     
    1) This file includes evidence that a search of the high school and college caselists confirms have not been read in any debates yet. These cards are all from 2011 and 2012 and are cut from books.
    2) It is organized into a frontline and every argument has pre-written extensions.
    3) Every single card in the file is highlighted.

    Thursday File - September 20th (Greenhill)

    This week's Thursday File updates the Obama Good elections DA. It includes extensive uniqueness work both ways from the last few days that takes into account the news of the week (Romney's 47% gaffe, Obama's surge in several swing states). In addition to general uniqueness, I cut cards on the race in some of the biggest swing states. Since most of you probably already know what impact scenario you are reading, I decided to focus more on the link debate and answering some common impact turns. The link turn shield includes a new card from Orski (a common 1NC link author) from this week. The impact turn cards are originally researched answers to impact turns that many teams have been running.
     
    Aside from the elections debate, I included updated answers to many agenda DAs teams could run. As an added bonus, I included some new impact cards, including the best impact to warming (in terms of being high-quality and short) since Tickell, and some economy updates.
     
    Good luck at Greenhill or wherever you are debating this weekend!

    $3 AT: Fiscal Cliff Plus Other Ups (Friday File)

    This file contains affirmative answers to the scenario contained in yesterday's Thursday File (continuing resolution/fiscal cliff).
     
    In addition to some solid evidence that there won't be a deal reached before the elections, the file includes some cards for teams who want to impact turn the fiscal cliff as well as answers to major negative impact scenarios (econ, defense cuts). Even if you are link turning, the answers to the impact scenarios are worth the $3, because this scenario will be run all semester and the Thursday file doesn't have these arguments.
     
    As an added bonus I included:
    - some elections updates (all from 9/7)
    - recent answers to scenarios that were put out at camps but not answered in the Thursday File (Jackson-Vanik and LOST)
     
    Seriously, this file is a steal considering I basically did your work vs. this week's Thursday file.
     
    Good luck at Wake and Westminster!

    2012 SPS Aff Updates

    SPS is by far the biggest aff on this topic, but most teams read evidence that is at least a couple years old. This file includes evidence from 2012 that is high-quality and will allow teams to retire some of their old NSSO evidence. These articles are pretty hard to find and unless you have access to some pretty expensive journals, you aren't going to be able to cut them yourself.
     
    In my opinion, these A+ cards that you can use in half of your debates for the rest of this year is worth the price, but as an added bonus I've included answers to common negative off-case positions and case arguments against this aff.
     
    Every single card in this file was cut by me for this topic - this isn't recycled camp file crap.
     
    I've included a paper version along with a paperless version.
     
    PM if you have any questions.

    Dedevelopment

    Economic growth bad. Pretty self-explanatory.
     
    This argument has seen a resurgence in popularity in the last few years, playing a big part in some high-stakes rounds in both high school and college, including the 2010 TOC and the 2011 NDT final rounds. This argument is particularly useful on this year's space topic because everyone and their grandma has an econ advantage.
     
    This file has all the standard cards that you'll need to win the growth bad debate, including a lot of cards you won't find in any camp file, including updated evidence from 2011. The shell is short so you can keep your options in the 1NC and expand on it later. This argument can also be used on the aff with affirmatives that don't claim econ advantages, but make sure it doesn't contradict with other claims you are making. This file has a proven track record on both the high school and college circuits.
     
    I've included a paper version along with a paperless version.
     
    As with my other files, if you buy my file I will help you out if you run into an argument you need help developing answers to.
     
    At only $7, the price is pretty reasonable for an argument that can be used irregardless of topic for the rest of your career.
     
    PM if you have any questions.

    Kato K

    The Kato K is a critique of the way debaters frame nuclear war impacts.
     
    The simplified version of the argument is this:
    When we think of nuclear war only in the context of a global event that threatens the entire world/risks extinction, we forget about the ongoing nuclear violence that is being waged against what Kato calls the "Fourth World and Indigenous Peoples" in the form of nuclear testing, uranium mining, and nuclear waste disposal. This is bad because it functions as an "extermination" of these people. The alternative is to reject the aff's representations of nuclear war. Kato says this would result in a refocusing of priorities toward the structural causes of this violence.
     
    This argument has been around for a while, but peoples' answers are terrible. Kato's original article in the journal Alternatives isn't very well known, so there aren't many authors who directly respond to his argument.
     
    Besides the obvious shell and blocks, this file includes:
     
    - Cards from the 2011 Kato interview conducted by Christopher Spurlock
    - Comprehensive answers to hormesis (nuclear radiation good). If an aff team plans on going for this as their offense you should punish them.
    - Card-by-card answers to the only camp 2AC answers that have been produced specifically to this K.
     
    As an added bonus, if you buy this file and run in to an answer that I did not provide an answer to, I'll help you develop answers to the best of my ability.
     
    At just $5.00, this file is well worth it. I have included a paper as well as a paperless version.
     
    PM if you have any questions.
