  5. Sorry I have never done this. I will post something in a few hours
  6. Quick question (pause round sorry) whose the judge or is there any judge?
  7. What is the next step?
  8. Follow up questions: (1.) Who is we? (4.) Theres no clear link chain to come to those conclusions. thats the reason why im asking (5.) Then antonio is your only argument against solvency correct?
  9. CX Questions, I apologize for the lateness of these 1. Why vote neg? 2. Which args are condo? 3. Historically prove to me which wars the US participated that economic collapse was not the cause of war 4. Give warrant for point 6,7, "finally" AND all of adv 2 5. Where in your Antonio evidence does it warrant specifically that the Rao Ross 14 evidence is powertagged
  10. I apologize, the answer that I had provided was meant for another thread/round. The AFF, is *not* pre-fiat and that this is just a case where it we have come up with the complete job because of agency coordination and the overlying problem which HIAs can solve meaning we have access to our impacts and that the 1AC is still a viable proponent in voting aff for this round.
  11. 1. yes and no, ultimately the judge votes affirmative because the plan is something that is both good and works. 2. yes being a complete pre-fiat plan allows for the aff to be topical and effective in the debate space.
  12. 1. Are you going to kick out of T? 2. Explain to me in your own words what your K is and why should it hold and even be evaluated in the round... 3. Provide the round something more relevant in terms of where collapse doesn't lead to war than some person discussing world war 2 which by the way was 73 years ago. 4. Define Robust in the terms of HIAs in the United States 5. The year 2000 from Bennet consisted of the Bush administration, the military budget has significantly increased in the past 18 years. why is this card relevant to proving your point? 6. Has the US international presence truly declined? 7. What is the timeframe for any/all of the Heg args? 8. (lol if you gonna use Haass 13 at least cut the card correctly so that way its not misleading) What other country would be best to fill the void if the US was not present? 9. Do you not consider the declared bombings against Syria a war? 10. (Cohen 17) How would a canadian professor know the interworkings of the US nuclear system? 11. (Q9) How would a british "international security expert" know the interworkings of the US nuclear system which I promise you has changed since 2009? 12. Hurricane Harvey was that storm that rocked everything around where I live in Texas, is this not the storm that Azarcon 13 was discussing? And if it is not, then please explain where in the card that one specific storm in which he is talking about... 13. Where is the connection to the schools part of HIA, which my plan focuses on, in your Cole et all 8 card from a decade ago? 14. Why consider the NEG at this point?
  13. Three post CX limit good? (Not until you explain what you mean by this) 1. Why vote aff? (Vote AFF based on the predicated belief of 1. whatever the AFF provides is functional and will always be better than anything the neg will cast on the round 2. By the neg simply asking the question of "Why vote AFF?" it opens up the debate space to where frivolous theory and trash arguments becomes acceptable therefore destroying the entire premise of debate. Please take into note that this has actually happened in real life, my teammate, whom I would believe to be one of the best in the state of Texas for PF, has quit and even left the school because of the allowance of things like this in the high school realm of debate.) 2. What is a HIA in the context of the affirmative? (HIA, or Health Impact Assessments are governmental reviews done by the school that allow for the EPA through the NEPA to establish a positive understanding of whether or not the school environment is best suited for the student to get the most out of his/her/etc education. ) 3. Do you have a solvency advocate that actually says the aff decreases healthcare costs? I guess on that tangent, does the Rao & Ross evidence ever actually cite why the implementation of the 1AC is good? (Yes, the belief of the AFF in having a solvency advocate is the Rao & Ross 14 card that brings about the principle of decrease in healthcare costs. This second question directly ties back to the explanation I give for your question #2. I'm not going to repeat myself. ) 4. What is your end goal in the presentation of the 1AC? (The end goal in the presentation of the 1AC is to do what debate was always and has fundamentally always been which is to inform both the opponent, you, and the judge (idk who), that the necessity for better and to even have HIAs of schools are the key to this round overall. ) 5. Why hasn't disease caused extinction yet as per your Quammen evidence? (It has, research has proven that Quammen is correct in the the epidemic of zoonotic diseases wiping out entire species of animals and that a true researcher would know if you have ever taken biology that the food chain of the ecosystems puts humans towards the top of the list and that these diseases have begun to affect the animals that humans interact with and ingest most i.e. cows, pigs, fruit bats, goats, etc. meaning that we will be next. This is a mix of the bottleneck theory/Selectionism/Domino Effect. ) 6. Why hasn't Trump lashed out yet, as per the Foster evidence? (Trump has lashed out through economic sanctions as well as increased deployment of military forces... North Korea incident, Syria Incident, Russia Incident, Mexico, United Kingdom ((Great Britain)), Japan, China, Germany, Iraq, Iran, Canada, etc) 7. Can you please point to me a single warrant in the USAID evidence? (Yes. First you see that there is a tag, a tag is a specific title that does not copy the title of the news article because a tag is supposed to summarize the point of the news article. Second, there is the warrant which consists of the body of the card and even to the extent of the Author, Date, and accredited background of the Author. In this case, the Author is the US Government, more specifically the United States Agency for International Development. The United States Agency for International Development is an agency of the United States Federal Government that is responsible for administering civilian foreign aid and developmental assistance. )
