    DAs to States

    In terms of DAs to funding planks, there's a War On Drugs DA to the weed plank in the Daily Card that I read most of the season. Carbon tax shouldn't be hard to find, just steal cards from last year's college topic.
  3. Sorry for the massive delay / inactivity. Tomorrow morning, I will update the entry list. The tournament will start April 16th.

    Making an aff

    There's no reason why 50 state fiat doesn't solve 100% of this, though

    Why doesn't the perm link to the net-benefit

    For federalism, you should say that the perm is seen as cooperation between the states and the fed. For midterms, you can make the argument that the CP links to the NB because Democrats/Republicans/whoever can still use education as a platform, even if it's only at a state level.

    Daily Card

    Not quite "world getting worse", but it's a decent answer to the Pinker / related authors who say violence is declining 2-5-18.docx

    Title 1 Topicality

    I don't think having a case supported by the NSDA/NDCA necessarily makes it topical, but they may have been referring to the topic paper, which also doesn't necessarily make something topical.

    how to answer a link of omission as a k aff

    They're pretty easily resolved by a perm. The thesis of the link is "you don't talk about x issue, that's bad". However, you should use the permutation to be like "perm - do the aff and include x in our method - their only link is that we don't talk about something which doesn't prove mutual exclusivity", or something similar.
