Pro

I accept this debate.

Resolved: Is healthy school lunches a lost cause?


Lost cause: "a cause with no chance of success." (http://www.thefreedictionary.com...)


As PRO I must argue that health school lunches are a lost cause, whereas CON will argue that they are not a lost cause.

However, CON concedes this debate in his round by claiming that "Michelle Obama is screwing us over in this stupid whole wheat crap"--if this is the case, then certainly, as he concedes, this hasn't a chance of generating a successful outcome. Further, if teens are proesting, as he shows, that backlash may spark some sort of grassroots-level rebellion whereby teens refuse to comply, thus hampering this proposal from a successful outcome. CON has basically made my case for me, and should he switch in the next round, this should be seen as a deliberate inconsistency and ought to merit a loss in argument points.

Therefore, you vote PRO.

Recap

My side of this debate is to defend the position that healthy school lunches are a lost cause--I've explained how CON's arguments actually service my position. You'll note that he never once questions whether he has conceded this debate.

Now he says, "i didnt chose con on purpose." But this is false. He did choose CON because he's listed as CON.

Vote PRO. Thank you.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Tie. Normally I'd award it to the side that didn't forfeit, but in this case I found Pro's clear manipulation of Con's intent to be distasteful. This is a low tier noob snipe move Pro...smh... S&G - Tie. Both had adequate spelling and grammar throughout. Arguments - Pro. Pro is indeed correct that Con argued for Pro's position, and when Con failed to correct his error and admitted he chose the wrong position, it was game-over, unfortunately. Thus Pro wins arguments. Sources - Tie. Both utilized sources and neither really stood out as dominant in this regard since Con merely utilized a Youtube video and Pro only used it for defining a term rather than strengthening an argument.

Reasons for voting decision: Well... yeah. Pro noob-sniped Con. It's obvious that Con's position in the debate was actually supposed to be Pro, yet Pro decided to accept the debate and require Con to hold to his position. A bit dastardly. Anyway, the result is still relatively clear, Pro wins arguments as the only arguments in the debate are for his side. Con gets conduct because, despite the forfeit, I find Pro's decision to accept this debate and argue as he did a bigger breach of conduct.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro wins arguments because he made actual points which were not contradicted even remotely. I give Con the conduct point because Pro should've known better than to noob-snipe someone who clearly had chosen the position he/she didn't actually want to represent.
