Before I begin writing, I'd like to remind everyone that Daylight Savings Time began today. My family completely forgot and my mother was late for church. Now onto fun things:
The American Corn Worshippers (ACW) returned as an entity after many years of inactivity to participate in a debating tournament. The ACW, an associate organization of Two Guys Working From A Basement (TGWFAB), were in contention for the final but were screwed over by a man named Dash (j/k). The ACW was the top Marianopolis team, and worshipper Hoffer was the 3rd place speaker in the tournament.
I'm finally comfortable debating in my style and the eye contact problem that has dogged me for years is finally settled. Now the only things stopping me from doing REALLY well is my weaker critical analysis skills, my general lack of knowledge, and the fact I'm a visible minority. None of these things can be changed overnight, but I'll sure as hell try. Especially the visible minority part, I plan to slowly transform myself into John Smith Hamilton, caucasian male.
After looking at the results of the last couple of tournaments, I ask the question, how often have I won a Gov round? The last case I remember winning was UN headquarters should move to Ethiopia. I can't think of other Gov round I have won.
I'm sure I meant to write something else but my memory fails me.
Just to be clear, there is no racial discrimination on the Canadian debating circuit, at least none that I know of.
