  1. Give it up for day 25 of the government shutdown... There is an important meet coming up this weekend, and I do not want to lose any rounds due to the shutdown. I know the government shutdown is just a partial shutdown, but does that still affect the areas dealing with immigration? In the beginning days of the shutdown, I ran a sort of made up DA saying that without government funding, no plan is able to pass. It worked for the round, but is that statement true? Thanks in advance...
  2. My b, I put in an email that I forgot the password to.... 😶
  3. Figures... I'm in Indiana, and judges will literally down vote any aff like that.
  4. What is the point of the Leprosy aff? I don't understand
  5. If I'm understanding correctly, I ask in cx about the specification. If I don't get the specification, then I can run T substantial and put them in a double bind. Is that correct?
  6. I planned to run it against a T visa case. They say they are going to increase the cap, but they never "clarified" and told us a number
  7. I want to run a plan specification argument, but I'm not really sure how to go about doing so. I know there are TSPEC and ASPEC args to make, but the one I'm looking to do deals more with the amount of immigrants being let in. Do I need cards with this spec arg?
  8. Great idea. I'm assuming that the lack of legal counsel would be the restriction here. Am I correct in assuming so?
  9. So loosen restrictions on these particular social groups, but treat the case like it's refugees?
  10. I know it's a little late in the season to be asking for help with affs, but I just need an aff topic for one week. My partner is going to be out of town, and there is not enough time to explain the depths of my regular case to a temporary partner. Really, what I'm looking for is a topic good enough to run for a week. Any little suggestion helps... 😁
  11. That would be a great way to go about it. The only thing is most of the information needed to understand the plan's topicality is restricted to Valpo uni students. I'm sure there's other info out there saying the same thing, I'll just have to look for it.
  12. Alright, so in the instance of resolving the court clog, what is a topical thing to do?
  13. I'm a debater in Indiana... so we're a bit behind. Anyways, some teams who went to nats said it is untopical to hire, i.e. judges, lawyers, etc. Should I listen to them, or did they just tell me that to have an advantage over me?
  14. My case also deals with legal representation. I was wondering if creating institutions to solve the need for lawyers is untopical. In general, teams seem to think that hiring judges, lawyers, etc. are untopical, but how else can we solve the problem? Also, would you mind re-posting the first link? It isn't working for me. Thanks
