    (Partial) Government Shutdown

    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. 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?

    Any weird, but topical affs?

    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... 😁

    Agamben K

    Can someone explain the Agamben K? It's really intersting but hard to comprehend.
  5. What arguments go best against Topicality with Gender Asylum???
  6. Hey! My last year of high school debate was last year, but I'm really needing some help from the debate community. My friend's roommate has attempted to commit suicide and basically the university police told her that the problem wasn't that important and if she is going to harm herself to "use a clean blade." My friend and I found out that our university does not have explicit guidelines on what to do in this type of situation. Our campus police also aren't required to take a mental health training (expect for when they were in the police academy). There was a case last year during the education topic about guidance counselors only focusing on test scores rather than mental health. I could have sworn this was on open evidence, but I can't find it anywhere. We are going to propose a policy on mental health at our university. If you guys have any ideas/experiences with this feel free to send me a message! I'm trying to create the best outcome for this policy as possible. Even without the case I will be able to do adequate research, but I remembered that it had some pretty good evidence. If anyone has it/or cards that might help me pleeaaase let me know or if there is a place to purchase it! Thanks so much!
  7. I have already thought of 2 but I want to see if you guys can help me think of more.
  8. I just can't seem to think of any CX questions to ask and I think Tournament 1 is soon :(

    Districts Upcoming

    This year I've only competed at two tournaments, and while I won both of them, they were both locals. I will be doing policy at NFL districts in April, and I'm in a pretty progressive area of Texas. Other than open evidence and a unique Aff, I don't have any prep. Between now and then I want to establish a good, regular work ethic that'll get me to competition level. I will be along side schools like Greenhill. Not easy competition. So I have a few requests. 1. Could I get some recommended AFFs I should write case NEGs for? 2. What is the best way to organize evidence (really, everything)? 3. What are the best sources to consistently get good evidence? Thank y'all so much in advance.
  12. The plan: The United States federal government should curtail its domestic surveillance of stored electronic communication that is warrantless and unbound by mutual legal assistance treaties signed by the United States. The plan strengthens warrant requirements and prevents domestic warrants from forcing companies to breach foreign law.

    Novice Finals...Novice Maverick...

    Hey, all! So I'm a novice...a policy novice...whoop. Saturday we had a debate tournament. It was my team's first time breaking, and we made it past semi-finals, to finals! My partner didn't think we would break, so they were already set to leave before semi's. My partner got permission from their parents to stay one more round, but REALLY needed to leave after that. They convinced me it was fine, though, because we wouldn't make it to finals anyway. You know where this is going...we made it to finals. So not only was it my first time mavericking, but it was also my first time in finals...yay. It ended up going really well, though. I went against a team known for making their opponents cry during cross-ex, so I actually feel like it went well! My 2AR was probably the best I've ever given (I usually give that speech, anyway) and all of the viewers said I won. I was able to prove that there was no link to their disadvantage or counterplan, and won on topicality for both. Which, brings me to the point of this insanely long post...can I still win a finals round if I maverick? Because my team (ME) ended up taking second, but most people thought I should have won. One of my judges shook my hand after awards and said "I'm sorry. You would have won, but..." in reference to my lack of a partner. Is this debate-legal, to make someone lose strictly because they mavericked?

    Top 5 Affs from other workshops?

    Hey everyone, new to Cross-X.com, but I'd like some help finding the Best Affs from other Workshops (Camps). I have a google form survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSco_3FLIxPbLm-6t8cEWx1_pqoxCOVXPfEgjUhZNXTkgdQtLw/viewform I'd appreciate if you guys helped me out. If anyone has any of their own affs that they want to add, that's fine by me. Thanks
  19. Does anyone have any ideas on a topical version of the Virilio K aff because I am struggling to think of one?

    Solar Flared Da Ideas

    I came up with the idea late in the season and was wondering if anybody else had used solar flare as a da and if they had success with it.

    Partner Problem

    Hello cross x, I have a pretty big problem and I have tried to figure it out for a while, but I've come up with no solution. State is right around the corner and I'm having a huge partnership issue. My current partner and I are EXTREMELY close to qualifying but at the last 2 tournaments we went to, his performance as 2AC was poor and he was acting very sluggish the entire tournament. Usually Id say he was just exhausted but my team and I have reason to believe that was not the case and that this type of behavior and performance will continue. Now at this past tournament my coach set me up with someone else and we won the tournament, bringing us halfway to qualifying. Debating with him was a blast because I felt actually part of the team, and it was like we were equals, which is never the case with my current partner. Any advice would be great!
