    Are the cites for these the same stuff that's on the wiki for WM against Gulliver? Also, what was the 2NR answer to "neoliberalism makes cap unsustainable"
  4. I don't have a JOT login, can someone put that list up anyways? I'm mostly interested in how many out of state people are coming.
  5. you know, he would, if they responded to the FIVE EMAILS we sent. But after the twentieth cite request, this is easier.
  6. Preliminary team list? Who's coming to Vegas?
  7. bump chander ramesh and katrina kaiser from St. Francis
  8. You get in to scholars? I went last year. Good stuff.

  9. they have been consistently 3-1 at all league tournaments. They won UoP, and obviously did well here. As kozakura says, this speaks a little louder. Part of the area 1 experience is, I think, that there's simply a very large emphasis on communicating with laypersons. Not to stereotype, but there's a difference between just reading your regular circuit affirmative at less wpm (ahem damien) and really structuring an accessible "story". For some, there's a difference between an argument being right, or even good, and it being attractive to vote for. Hopefully, it's all three of these.
  10. Intel time : What affs have people been seeing?
  11. Who's intending on going? What camp are you going to first?
  12. Little law-related question: why is prior-restraint the worst form of restriction of free expression?



  13. Thread started. See you all Saturday.
  14. a note on some of the strats i see being read (thanks to people putting them up for the rest of us back home): It's really nice to see these deep, vertical debates with not a whole lot of off and a bunch of case turns / adv CPs gone for instead. Yay making the aff defend the aff!
  15. Let me clarify a bit, cause I'm no 'policy snob': The round I saw was on the ICC topic, and the counterplan-sorta-advocacy-thing was to have Truth and Resolution Courts instead. It was really weird to watch, because the nr didn't end up sayiing whether he advocated the CP 100% or not. As a theoretical judge not having seen this before, if I were judging, I don't understand how the nr gets to both contest the value criterion, make case turns, and present a cp that links to at least some of those case turns. It sounds silly. My friend on the neg ended up picking up one ballot on some ICC=tanked relations=prolif turn, which the other two judges said needed to be impacted as a solvency-for-affVC turn and not an external impact, which made sense to me. I guess I was confused about having two plateaus for decision, first deciding on a VC and then figuring who meets it best. As a policy kid, it makes more sense to me to concede aff VC in the nr and debate the case... but it seems like it's convention not to close any options, which must make judging weird and/or risk intervention and/or cause really long decisions.
  16. someone must really pity you to give you your own forum subsection. ... but I'll play along.... I saw an LD debate for the first time last weekend, there was definitely this CP business going on that wasn't really a CP, and i have no fucking clue what judges are supposed to vote on.
  17. ethically impacted and for the sake of sheer argument yes, in the context of ground impacts etc. questionable, simply because the res is clear enough about FEDERAL social services for ppl in the US, and thus a 'globalized' (?) definition would jack predictability and germanity to the topic. that doesn't mean I wouldn't say that, though.
  18. I agree, i haven't been able to find it on JoT yet.
  19. no 'substantially increase' modifies services, not persons in poverty.
  20. no, you are increasing the 'servicability' of one social service out of an unchanged number of services. C/I social service = program with its own admin and budget line. I think that 'number' should stay out of a discussion of this T. Remember the nat'l service topic? "number of persons serving" was deliberate.
  21. bump I'm a rising senior that cut cards all the time at GDI scholars last year and am looking for a change. And am straight po.
