    Planless Aff?

    So, I compete in a primarily stock/comms area and am interested in running a K-Aff. I found one that I like but it doesn't have a plan. I'm sure this is a novice question but how would I go about running a case without a plan? Also, how do I defend T? How does the USFG substantially reduce anything?

    IRS surveillance aff

    Recently I hit an IRS case and they only gave us a paper copy which they took back after the round was over, I flowed it but I was wondering if there is a brief or file online that has the case so I could take a closer look for my team's frontline against it.

    Anyone have some BIT cards?

    Specifically, a card that shows will it WILL pass. And, maybe a card that shows why it will NOT pass, or why it would be undesirable for the BIT (in its current form) to pass. Thanks!

    Be a part new debate documentary!

    Hi, this is the director and producer of the film We Affirm! We Affirm is a new and upcoming documentary about the world of high school debate. We created this film with the intention to educate those not in the debate community about what exactly it is that we do and why we are so passionate about it. We also want this to be a film for debaters by debaters, which is where you guys come in! We want to be able to have debaters from all across the nation and globe to a part of this film. One of the biggest aspects of this film is focusing on the voice of debaters and letting them share how debate has affected their lives. If you would like to be a part of this, then just create a video and send it to weaffirmdoc@gmail.com . The video does not have to be anything fancy and can really just be shot on your webcam. All you need to do is say your name and where you are from and then answer the following questions: Why did you join debate? After joining, why have you chosen to stick around? How has debate impacted or changed your life? We look forward to working with all of you and hope to hear back from you all soon! If you would like to learn more about us you can check out our Indie Go Go page, too. igg.me/at/we-affirm-debate-documentary

    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.

    Heuristic States

    I remember sometime this year a judge told one of my opponents who read framework against us and lost to look into this argument...what is it? I can't find the flow where I wrote about it. Thanks

    How to get around the BIT?

    So, I want to make an economic aff that argues we need to increase and reform our current business plan with China. However, the BIT essentially does this anyways- and its supposed to be "in thew works/close to passing." Is there any way aorund this? Maybe my aff extends the bit? Encourages the bit? reforms the bit?

    Policy Debate Camp

    I've been trying to decide on what debate camp to go to this summer. I'm looking for a camp that will help me improve technically as well as expand my knowledge on ks and the lit base that goes along with them. I want a camp that is more k intensive. My partner went to Wake last year for the K lab and said that it was good. However, I've also looked into UTNIF and UMich. Although those are my main choices, if you think that there are better ones, please recommend them. Additionally, it would also be very helpful if people who actually went to these camps could give me information on the style and structure of these camps. As for more information: I started policy debate this year, I'm a sophomore, my partner and I have won several varsity tournaments, and we qualed to nats. Thanks

    Cross X

    Hey guys. What is open cross x? I kind of get it, but I just wanted to know like when people do it, when it is allowed, who can ask, who can answer, etc.

    Mavericking For Texas Tfa State

    Long story short, my partner failed his french class with a 0 because he didn't do any work and now he's not eligible for Texas TFA state competition. I'm considering to maverick there and I'm wondering if there are any tricks and tips on mavericking. I'm also wondering if mavericking is an option or not for Texas TFA state because it didn't specify on the website.

    Security K construction

    I want to construct my first Kritik 100% from my own cuts and whatnot. Does anyone know anything good authors/sources to start on the construction of a security kritk (AC portrays china as more of a threat than it realistically is in order to justify almost limitless action + need to reevaluate how we understand politics and threats to prevent actual actual escalation). Do I have a proper conception of the kritik? Also- I have heard that Zizek is a fun/interesting kritik to make- would this 1) Be easier and 2) be more competitive as a K?

    Code-switching

    I've been hearing things through the grapevine about a code-switching critique. From what I can understand, it's using a combination of black vernacular and standard English to make the activity more appealing to minorities. Can anyone explain it a bit more or find a file on it?
  22. 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

    Levinas Aff?

    Can someone explain the Levinas affirmative to me? Much appreciated.
  24. So i was wondering if there is some sort of like CP that i could couple up with a policy FW against a K-aff claiming to solve for racism. Basically to show that a pragmatic policy approach is possible.
