  1. Does anyone have any third world econ collapse bad cards? Or why revitalizing third world countries is good
  2. Elections DA vs all race and/or K affs. Trump is the impact. Turns everything everywhere.
  3. I've been having a hard time looking for a DA that isn't pres. powers or terror. It would be nice if they were easy enough to understand so that a novice could understand it, but if they aren't that easy to understand, that's okay, too, as long as somebody explains it well enough. Thank you so much in advance!
  4. so this year's topic seems really filled with trump-esque DA's (for good reason) but they are getting a little bit boring imo. Was wondering if ya'll are running anything remotely interesting that you'd like to share or if anyone would like to brainstorm some new stuff.
  5. Whenever I read online about Politics DAs, I always find that people bash on them for some reason, and from what I understand, Politics DAs are somehow different than other DAs. How are Poltics DAs different from "regular" DAs, and why are they sometimes looked down upon? Also, I came across this page, and I don't understand the rationale behind these reasons: http://learnpolicydebate.wordpress.com/2012/03/31/reasons-why-the-politics-disadvantage-is-the-worst-disadvantage-in-policy-debate/ If anybody could help me understand, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  6. Anyone have cards over the Malthus DA? Aff and neg appreciated, willing to trade some unique DAs (have a sea lanes DA just cut today).
  7. My partner and I have been hitting a lot of NAD Bank and just overall Mexico cases. We were wondering if anyone had some DA's or Counterplans that are effective against them. We have a few but need some more to stay competitive. We are willing to do a trade for some of the stuff we have written.
  8. I need help with DA's and counter plans. Last tournament, I ran a courts counter plan and won. The thing is that the judge stated that the affirmative is the counter plan because the AFF never specified which branch of government is enacting their plan. If this is the case, when would you run the courts counter plan? I've thought about making sure to ask which branch of government would enact the AFF plan in the first cross ex to set myself up for DAs. I would make a Congress DA, courts CP, executive order DA, courts CP, Courts DA, congress CP. Then I thought about what if they refuse to answer. What then can I do? Any suggestions? Also, giving any other generic CP would be nice as well.
  9. Elections DA vs all race and/or K affs. Trump is the impact. Turns everything everywhere.
  10. Anyone have cards over the Malthus DA? Aff and neg appreciated, willing to trade some unique DAs (have a sea lanes DA just cut today).
  11. I know that the affirmative can straight turn a DA by either: Using the link (i.e. non-uniqueness + link turn) Using the impact (i.e. impact take-out + impact turn) But as negative, how can you get out of the straight turn? The negative has to go for the straight turn, but is there any chance and/or way of winning the argument?
