I’m wondering if BAUDL is engaging in the dynamics of the first presidential debate of the 2020 election. How do the tactics compare to BAUDL practices or other debate practices?
I was wondering whether any of the members of this club held any political debates recently.
As a former judge, I just wanted to say, "Happy Holidays!" I learned so much by the club's debates on the Merida Initiative: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%A9rida_Initiative Guess what's in the news from the White House this morning!!
