Just because its probably good to have a "database" of parli res's (for practice rounds and the like), post the in-tournament resolutions you've had here.
Butler wrote:
TH believes President Obama has succeeded
AFF- Hillsdale MB (us)
NEG- Webster
Aff
Res anal:
Res of fact
"Succeed"- to bring about an advantage or disadvantage (OED)
Aff philosophy: President Obama has succeeded in rejuvenating the American Right.
Contentions:
1. Right was in dissarray before 2008 Presidential election
2. Right is revitalized, as shown by the Tea Party and the midterm elections

Neg:
Res anal:
Common person definition--cannot succeed by failing
American people will look at his policies to decide his success
C-Cont:
1. Iraq War
2. Spending
3. Unemployment
4. No Real Change

NEG won on....I'm really not sure what. The ballot never referenced any of the arguments, just a bunch of random stuff about how Erin and I were "too creative" with the res (even though we won the res anal debate), and a comment on how we made up our (uncontested and verified) stats

TH believes the USFG should put the cart before the horse
AFF- Purdue
NEG- Hillsdale MB
Aff case (this is translated into the correct format):
Res anal:
Policy res
"Cart" defined as charging stations for electric cars
"Horse" defined as electric cars
Inh:
1. Houses can't charge electric cars easily
2. THere are very few charging stations
3. Electric cars can only go 20-40 miles, so travel is impractical
Harms:
1. Emissions--global warming
Plan:
Build 1 charging stations for every 15 electric cars in the US, focusing on metropolitan areas
Solvency:
1. Creates incentive to build electric cars, since people will be able to charge them
2. There will be enough stations to charge cars
Advantage:
1. Entrepreneurship--small businesses will get in on the electric car game

Neg args:
M-spec on metropolitan and power source for the charging stations
Cutgo DA
Inh: No inherent barrier, cross apply aff statement that there have been "technological advances" in electric cars from adv
Harms: Turn--most US power comes from coal, they don't spec how they power the stations, so we can assume coal. This causes more emissions
Solvency:
Most travel, especially in the Midwest, has stretches of way more than 40 miles through rural areas, so cars would die. People would still need a second car, and they would never use the electric car because it can't go as fast, is a pain, and takes longer to charge. So there's no incentive
Advantages:
Electric cars are expensive and the major auto makers are moving to electric cars, no way small businesses can get in on it.

NEG wins, no real RFD

TH would go to an online institution of higher learning
Non power-matched BYE

TH is oblivious to its addiction
AFF- Hillsdale MB
NEG- Grove City (four former NCFCAers, including me, Sarcasm [my partner], and willmalson)

AFF-
Res anal:
Res of fact
"Addiction"- devotion to something (OED)
"Oblivious"- Unconscious of (OED)
"TH"= US public education system
US education system is oblivious to its addiction to math and the hard sciences

I really don't remember the contentions--I'm the 2A so I don't usually find out the details to the case until Erin gives the 1AC...I don't remember much.

NEG wins--I didn't read the RFD, it was late and I was tired.


TH believes marriage is unconstitutional
I didn't debate this round--we didn't break.


EDIT:
In case you aren't familiar with parli terminology:
USFG- United States Federal Government
TH- This House
THB- This House Believes
THBT- This House Believes That
BIRT- Be it resolved that

Some of the wording there is slightly off. You missed semis which was "TH should play nice"

We didn't have anyone break, so we left after quarters. PM me the correct wordings if you have them, that was going off memory.

I think you should also post what the aff case was, and possibly how the neg argued against it. I am always curious how people are able to turn things like "the USFG should put the cart before the horse" into an actual debate round.

These are the ones I made for a recent TX tournament.


Round 1: The United States Federal Government should immediately eliminate at least one of the following executive-level agencies:
1. Department of Energy (DOE),
2. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS),
3. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD),
4. Department of Labor (DOL), and/or
5. Department of Transportation (DOT)

Round 2: For the USA, keeping our word on the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is more important than deterrence


Round 3: The U.S. should substantially change its current high-level success strategy in Afghanistan for 2011 and beyond


Round 4: The Terrorists have won


Semifinal Round: Government should value stewardship above free market capitalism when these ideals conflict


Final Round: The United States of America should overhaul its current airport security model to adopt the Israeli approach

PKD nationals (wordings may not be exact):
R1: TH should reduce the collective bargaining rights of public employees
R2: TH should change the way SCOTUS does business
R3: We believe the benefits of privacy outweigh the costs of surveillance
R4: "The art of persuasion, beautiful and just" is insufficient to transform the relationship between partisan groups in today's political environment
R5: The USFG should substantially reduce its support of women's health services (we were aff...that was interesting)
R6: The USFG should substantially change its foreign policy toward Pakistan.

We broke, so I'll have the outrounds tomorrow or Sunday.

Which division did you break in? I just broke in open.

You missed the key wording in round 3 which made the resolution absolute crap. It was "We believe the benefits of privacy outweigh the costs of surveillance". That resolution and round 4's resolution were atrocious.

What did you run in round 5?

We're in JV. The team of Hillsdale BM.

We ran take away health service foreign aid from nations that use said foreign aid for female circumcision (yes, we had specific news articles). I was very surprised when they didn't argue T on health services...
We lost the case debate, because I (oops) dropped a solvency takeout they blipped out. It was so minor and nonsensical it literally got lost in my flow. They won the point of order when my partner tried to refute it (which actually the judge was wrong--they rearticulated the point so much it was de facto new), but they dropped two education RVIs on their M-spec and Ts, so my partner collapsed to those and the judge picked us up.

And I agree, round 4 was horrible. Why did they say "insufficient?" Just make it "sufficient" and make the ground a lot clearer. Also, resolutions that are a paragraph long are usually a bad idea.

Huh, that's an interesting case. My partner and I ran reinstating the Mexico City Policy. We actually had a fun round with that one.

My problem with the round 4 resolution wasn't the use of "insufficient" but the fact that the resolution seemed to be designed to make T arguments. By putting the motto in quotation marks it forces gov teams to either argue something about PKD uniquely not affecting the entire public discourse, which is truistic, or make it more wide open to something like persuasion in general (which is what we did) and get hit with a massive T press. I'm actually now really curious if we won that T debate....
