  1. basically when something is controversial like a large bipartisan split on let's say HSR, and Obama manages to get it passed, Obama is perceived as a super awesome mega strong leader and so he is able to use that new found leverage on the next piece of legislation as ppl are more likely to side with someone as they percieve as a leader

  2. The permutation links to the net benefit thus it generates competition for the CP. For example, Aff is HSR there's only a warming advantage , Neg is a renewable energy CP and a Politics DA. The link to the Politics DA is "Transportation projects are unpopular". If the Aff permed, and said we should do both the cp and the plan, the link to the politics DA is still triggered because the plan is enacted, so in theory, the counterplan is competitive because you cant do both the plan and the counterplan while avoiding the netbenefit. The netbenefit can either be a DA, K, or Case turn

  3. reverse voting issue; for example, "T is a RVI because it's a timeskew", its basically a reason to not only reject the arg but reject the team for bringing up such an uneducational and meaningless argument taking out/decreasing education/fairness, that being said, never run these types of args in policy

  4. overloading a speech.doc and then skipping pages of cards just to screw up the other team as much as possible.

    Paper debaters do that too tho, a lot of times theyll only read one or two cards from a sheet of paper and not read one or more from that same page, it should be the debaters responsibility to flow the speech instead of relying on the provided speech doc/papers

    However, I do agree card marking is a legit issue

  5. I vote Toshiba. I have one and I've seen pretty awesome ones for like 450 with 8 gb of ram, 750 gb hard drives, and 2.3 ghz processors. I'd check out best buy for good ones if I were you. I've had my satellite for a little over a year and have had no problems with it really.

    They're prolly perfect for your needs but the speakers suck, like you cant hear anything, its THAT soft

  6. I dont know if this is true for other states but in Florida, policy teams don't generally go to CFL nats, we usually send just first time novices who auto qual

    1. CFL is one of the two national tournaments that the Kansas State High School Activities Association allows us to compete in. I think that this makes many teams unprepared to debate our schools because the arguments on our circuit develop differently due to our relative isolationism.

    Considering this is one of the only options for travel tournaments in Kansas, they probably send their best teams in good numbers
