I wont make the topic committee this year.
To be honest, i felt rather disrespected last year when I attended, but now i do have the experience to talk some trash.
This year, there were too many affirmatives. I almost worked our coaching staff to death. (both of us)
I mean you had quirin
and then milliken
and vawa, nope, i mean morrison
and then casey
there were like 20 affs at least.
so narrow it down a little
It would be nice if we had the topic researched by the end of october this year instead of december
I am sure I will be missed enough that the meeting will run on time
for those who attend,
watch out for the last day, "nothing can be put on the ballot at the last minute"
but i hear some changes are in place
like, do we already know the possible resolutions?
"small" schools need a narrow topic so they can compete toe to toe with the "big" schools
that what is missing, a little bit more narrowing of the topic, then we have competitive equity....
i mean we can:
be mean to the middle east
be nice to the middle east
deal with specific areas like weapons or aid
or we could just let the debaters debate
Resolved: The USFG should substantially change its foreign policy in the Middle East.
I know it probably cant pass the grammarian "what if" speak,
but once again, i will say, its not rocket science
dont try to control it
with any resolution we will get debate,
with narrow resolutions come shallow ideas debate
Democracy at its best.
