Well, the most important thing for all of our loyal followers to know is that our esteemed co-captain, Mr. McNeil, is “very creeped out” by this city. It evidently came straight from the 1980s, and no amount of Chipotles would persuade him otherwise. Fortunately, this has not affected his debating thus far.
Graham and David have had an interesting few rounds–in their first, they decided that the US Republican Party would wholeheartedly endorse a flat tax system. Oh, and then they kicked their plan in the PMR. So that happened.
Their next round, on the topic “This house believes that Syria is next,” their opponents decided to define ‘next’ as ‘next to not get invaded’. Unsurprisingly, this went poorly for the opposing team.
Miles and Justin are a bit unsure of their standing at the moment. They drew the right side of the debate on the flat tax resolution–flat taxes are bad, by the way–but were a bit mystified when their opponents advocated a flat tax that also had scaling tax breaks…making it essentially progressive. So, topicality happened. Miles and Justin were not in front of Marijuana Guy, and so there’s a chance they won.
The next round–the Syria one–saw Miles and Justin being deceived by a devious team from the Dakotas. Not knowing much about Syria, we allowed them to make up things that evidently weren’t true at all, and there’s a good chance they won on those things. Oops.
Despite all this, spirits remain high after a trip to Panera Bread and, later, a Dairy Queen. Yeah, no Culver’s. Heathens.
