A2 State Actor DA’s DDI 2008 BQ    will The Strat Sheet Ok, so I cut some rough answers to the DA’s that were included in the states file. Most of them should be easily beatable just by reading the evidence and pointing out the missing internal links. More specific notes on each one: Utah: You probably won’t hit this DA, because the plan links to it just as hard as the counter plan. The link is based on the effects of an emissions cap on coal plants in Utah. The emissions cap will affect the coal plants in the same way whether it is implemented at a national level, or a state-by-state level. If you do hit this DA, I think it would be really badass to concede it, and then kick out of the CP and go for it as a DA to the aff. Anyway, I put in a few defensive cards just in case someone changes the scenario to actually make it link. Montana: This DA says that the plan is unpopular, which stops Brian Schweitzer, (Montana’s Current Governor) from being re-elected. Schweitzer is supposedly key to stopping British Columbia from building a coal plant on the Flathead River. This coal plant would harm BioD and our friend Diner does the rest. The main problem with this DA is the internal link. First of all, it says that Schweitzer is one of two people leading a campaign to stop the coal plant, so the other guy could probably still do it. Secondly, the card only says that coal will kill a few fish; it never says that it will result in species loss. The Diner card is specific to the loss of species. Michigan: This one is saying that environmental regs hurt the business confidence of the auto industry. This suffers from the same problem as the Utah DA in that the regulations would probably hurt the business confidence no matter whether they were enacted on a federal or a state level. The tag of their hubbard tries to make the argument that state regulations are key but the card doesn’t say that. Other problems with this scenario are that virtually every aff deals with the coal/natural gas sector, and regulations on those companies probably won’t affect car companies. California: This is definitely the best scenario that was included with the file. I think the best arg here is that the uniqueness overwhelms the link, because the California economy really is fucked. AT: Utah – Non U 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
