  1. Sorry Ian I don't think I could live up to your expectations. UMKC has a 6 year BA/MD program.
  2. While I had heard that and really wish I could get a job at a school that puts so many resources towards debate I wouldn't be able to take that job. The Blue Valley School District has a rule about hiring grads that involves waiting until the individual is a junior in college (I may be off slightly but that is the jist of the rule).
  3. It looks like I'm going to be attending umkc next year and while I will be very busy with medical school I would like to find an assistant coaching job. Is any school hiring?
  4. For three trails senate I'm pretty sure its Stephie Shull not Sarah Shull
  5. You guys arguing over who is better is like DTrain and I arguing over who is better at playing basketball because ultimately he is a gawky sri lankan and i'm an uncoordinated jew. In the same way none of you are really major players in the debate community so does it really matter who is better?
  6. Michael Kennedy is the man. He has tigers blood running through his veins.
  7. Your forgetting t-subsets bro! Without it the 1a will destroy you

  9. I vehemently disagree with this. You have a fatal misunderstanding of the affs link story. There is no reason a Japanese nuclear meltdown would fuel antiamerican basing sentiment. In fact, poor response sorta like bush's poor response to Katrina probably further weakened the dpj strengthening the linkturn. Your argument reminds me of an old Yiddish quote,"if my grandmother had testicles she would be my grandfather." Simply enough, this is a non-sequiter.
  10. This File is an update on conventional arguments against Japan Affirmatives as well as an inclusion of new inventive arguments that the AFF won't be ready to answer. It includes answers to the two biggest advantages: China and Relations. Not only does it provide 1NC arguments but additionally has throughly developed 2NC blocks that I guarantee will win rounds. See the table of contents and learn more about the file below http://www.cross-x.com/evazon/product.php?id=10917 For Japan relations the file primarily features link turns that say that basing is key to relations and includes a plethora of reasons. The link work here not only is predicated on recent developments in the Japanese political climate, but also assumes recent developments with China's military. Also, I include answers to most viable aff arguments. For China I spent a lot of time working on the "Chinese Relations Collapsed" argument. Additionally, I answer most impact scenarios as well as answer internal links.

  11. No it was a 4-2 bubble round. Thank You for the encouragement. How'd you do at the glenbrooks?
  12. The newly released Word PIC file is an end of the year must have. As the season is winding down one thing becomes clear: competition is heating up and teams are choosing to break new affirmatives to get a competitive edge. The question then becomes how should you counter this? Simply put, Word PICs. While there is undoubtedly a large amount of comedy that surrounds the Word PIC their strategic value is undeniable. Certain words consistently occur in plan texts and having well cut word pics makes answering affs you don't have a case neg to easy. For example, there are a ton of K Affs on this years topic and prepping for every one of them at a small school would be ludicrous, but at the same time almost every one of these affs has the phrase "military presence" in the plan text. Why not win on a word pic that has a better ethical character than the AFF. Ultimately, a lot of rounds can be one on the word pic. Additionally, there is empirical evidence that this file wins. I read a word pic most rounds of every major national circuit tournament I went. In fact, I won round 7 of the glenbrooks on one of the word pics included in this file. I suggest that anyone who is looking for a niche buy this file. Finally, I am more than willing to help anyone who buys this, or any other of my files prepare blocks/do more research.
