A sad husk of debate. Once consisting of eloquent remarks and compelling speeches, it has turned into a glorified research session in which kids present their months of research on how pretty much anything the other side does will lead to nuclear war in a span of eight minutes. While many policy debaters boast about their ability to speak at speeds unimaginable to the average person, this may be considered a sign of denial; after all, if speaking so no one can understand you is the only element of debate you have, it's not much of debate, is it? Urban Dictionary

The slang term used by a group of gay men who have yet to come out of the closet. Used as a cover to remind each other who they really are. Urban Dictionary

(adj.) To describe something as monotonous, senseless, and pointless, something similar to policy debate Urban Dictionary

An obscure cult with its own distinct language understood only by members. The members speak incredibly quickly and think even faster. They tend to also be motivated students and often exhibit a mild form of OCD. Such debaters engage in conversation with each other on a much higher level than the average human, both in and out of round. The student government and honor roll within a school typically consist mostly of debaters. 80% of congress debated in high school. Membership in the cult lasts from 9th grade through 12th grade and sometimes through college, but the mannerisms and knowledge gained from it manifest themselves in all aspects of the current or former debater's life for the better. Policy debate kicks aff. Urban Dictionary

Basically a bunch of lies Urban Dictionary

*noun*, efforts by the government to intentionally run a deficit in order to stimulate the economy during a recession. Loosely associated with Keynesian economics. According to basic economic theory, recessions occur because there is a basic mismatch between aggregate demand and potential output. One approach for solving this is for the government to buy more goods and services than it has revenues to cover, thereby creating conditions in which effective demand is greater than the stock of goods currently in business inventory (given recessionary prices). Under a stimulus, the jolt of extra money in circulation creates inflation, which has the effect of lowering real prices. Customers then respond to the {de facto} price reduction by buying more, which leads to more hiring, thence to more effective demand, thence to economic recovery. Another reason fiscal policy stimulates the economy is that the private sector is not investing or consuming its own output. Increased taxes would simply reduce private consumption, so those cannot be increased; but spending is increased to fill the breach. Urban Dictionary
