[yelling]Do you guys wanna know what dawned on me during composition class earlier this week?[/yelling]
Adv's and DA's ARE a stock issue. Aka, significance. Adv's have to outweigh, otherwise its not significant because it's worse than the SQ. Vote neg because they lost a stock issue.
...sorry. Debate theory revelation. (I'm mah own coach....so, yeah. lol.)
*insert scream of pain/agony here*
The word "significantly" found in the resolution and the stock issue of significance are two completely separate things.
The word "significantly" deals with the policy reform itself. The stock issue of significance deals with the effects of the plan.
Going back to the topic: there are circumstances under which I would run sig-T. There are some cases this year which I might run sig-T on, but not JVA (my pre-written 1NC for JVA is about thirty seconds too long, and my partner's 2NC is usually stuffed). I like the literature standard a lot. I don't see how a judge could vote you down if you read off some of the advocates for JVA graduation-- that these people would spend time and effort on this issue speaks to it's significance.
