    New affs

    So my NFL qualifying tournament is coming up this weekend, I was wondering for those of your that have already had yours, what new/squirrelly affirmatives and plan texts have you seen. Also any new DA's?
  2. Hey everyone, I'm a 3 year debater and i had an aff case (on ocean clean up). But now, it seems that everyone can beat it. I was wondering if anyone has a good aff case that can help me make it or set it up. The thing is, i don't want to run a aff case that is on debate coaches. I want a brand new case that isn't there already. Or the other option is that if anyone is interested in making a new case with that would be great as well. If you guys want to from a group on making a new aff case or if you are interested then please contact me. If someone can help me, please do, you can email me at iram_gonzalez514@yahoo.com

    Hello everybody, This is a file of framework cards I recently cut that should be useful against critical teams with no plan texts or otherwise untopical affs. You're bound to get alot of mileage out of this file as it can be used year in and year out against the aforementioned untopical teams. This file will also be useful if you are affirmative and debating critical teams. This file consists mainly of cards written by Neil Butt, a debate coach from Vanderbilt University (last year Vanderbilt had team ranked in the top 16) and Nathan Stewart, a debate coach from Illinois State University. The cards are extremely high quality as they were written for academic purposes and extensively reference studies that have been done about the benefits of policy debate. The cards by Butt and Stewart cannot be found in camp files; to my knowledge I am the first person to have cut these articles. Not that it matters very much in framework good/bad debates, but many of the cards in this file are relatively new (from 2010). In this file you'll find cards to defend limits, predictability, role-playing, and switch side debate, which you'll find very useful as explaining the "impacts" to these concepts is one of the most important parts of framework debates. There are also answers to common arguments made by critical teams. Framework Good. 1 Debate K2 Critical Thinking. 2 Debate K2 Political Engagement 3 Debate --> Social Change. 4 Limits Good/Depth > Breadth. 5 Limits Good/Depth > Breadth. 6 Predictability Good. 7 Policy Focus Good. 8 Policy Focus Good. 9 Policy Focus Good. 10 Policy Focus Good. 11 Role Playing Good. 12 Switch Side Good. 13 Switch Side Good. 14 Switch Side Good. 15 A2: Ballot --> Change. 16 A2: Ballot --> Change. 17 A2: Debate Class Solves Education. 18 A2: Debate Excludes Women. 19 A2: Debate --> Coercion. 20 A2: Debate --> Marginalization. 22 A2: Flow Bad. 23 A2: We Won’t All Be Policymakers. 24 My name's Jacob Justice. I'm a 3rd year debater for Wayne State University, where I've broke and won speaker awards at multiple regional tournaments. I debated 2 years in high school for Dexter High School in Michigan. I'm currently a coach for West Bloomfield High School and last year I coached Brother Rice High School at the TOC. Happy debating, Jake

  4. I found this just a little wile ago, kind of hard to describe but basicaly its a google search tool (it has google dorks coded into it if you know what those are). Basicaly makes finiding what you need a whole lot easier, hope you enjoy http://googlehelper.4shared.com
  5. I'm eager to debate on the "Right to be Forgotten". I think there are good arguments on both sides, so it should be interesting.
  6. I feel like this will have the same advantages as the standard offshore drilling aff but it (sort of) solves for global warming instead of making it worse. Its easy to find lit for it but i feel like its easy to write a cp against it...
  7. hey y'all, I'm a sophomore at riverfield, never heard of right, well we have a graduating class of 34 so not a lot of resources, however our team consistently takes state, and would like to continue to grow, we have 6 teams right now and are for the first time moving out of region to debate, i would like tips, as our local circuit is mainly a stock issues circut
  8. What arguments go best against Topicality with Gender Asylum???
  9. This morning the new LD topic for September/October 2015 was released: "Resolved: Adolescents ought to have the right to make autonomous medical choices." I was wondering what all of your thoughts on the topic were. My thoughts: This debate heavily leans toward the negative side from what research I have done so far. Some questions to be considered: What is the exact age of an adolescent? ("Adolescence begins with the onset of physiologically normal puberty, and ends when an adult identity and behavior are accepted." - NCBI) This age will vary due to when the specific child hits puberty, and depending on whatever country they are in that chooses when an "adult identity" is accepted. Also, this would mean women would achieve this right earlier on the aff side, due to women hitting puberty earlier (Is it fair for women to achieve rights earlier than men?). Who is paying for the child's medical choices/What if they make a choice their parents can't afford? (Of course, that wouldn't apply in countries with free healthcare, but this appears to be an international topic.) What are the positives of allowing adolescents to make autonomous medical choices? (Emergency situations can be treated without a parental figure's approval, potentially saving lives. A child's privacy can be secured.) Would it be a good idea to go towards a human rights/morality angle on the aff side? Or would it be more valuable to point towards the positives of affirming the resolution? (I guess that still falls under the morality of consequentialism, thus applying to the 'ought' of the resolution. So it is still applicable.) As for the negative side, I would go for the angle that medical choices require money, and rights that are still out of the reach of a child limit the child from truly being able to have the full right to make autonomous medical choices (So the aff either can't reach the goal of achieving the full right to make autonomous medical choices, or the aff goes down a slippery slope that violates many existing laws concerning children and adults, and gives children adult identities that set them up for abuse through child labor, unjust criminal charges, etc.) But anyways, I am so excited to hear what everyone thinks about the topic!
