I believe she dumped him the last time, and I think the evidence supports that. But I think he forced her hand to do it because he lacked any affection towards her. I bet he gave her half hugs when they saw each other and rarely, if ever, kissed her, and she got tired of it. He probably professed his love more online than he did to her face.

We're trying to behead another president? Sheesh, and I thought I had it tough sometimes during my eight months. Tongue

The RPP DID have a team in place, and that's the reason it was able to be successful for so long despite its shortcomings during Presidential elections. The same team led the party for nearly its entire existence, with the two major changes coming when I took it over and then Yankee. But neither of us were new members, and most of its members were active and played the game for a long time.

The Federalists don't compare to the RPP at all really. The RPP was home to me and only The Party has rivaled that home since. Most know I never felt at home in the Federalist Party, and that wasn't really the fault of anyone, it just lacked that intangible that is needed to feel like you belong. The Party has it. The RPP had it. The Federalists did not, and that was before the unfortunate events of my Presidency occurred.

I admire Yankee's persistence to build the Federalists into SOMETHING, but I don't feel like they are anything. There are too many competing interests, and I learned that early into my first term as President. I admittedly did not do all I could to "reach out" to the members, but when I did attempt it, I discovered that what one person wanted was what another couldn't stand, so I just did what I always do and just decided to do things how I wanted them done and let results speak for themselves. That almost lost me a primary to Naso, but I have no regrets with how I managed things.

It's time to clean up the streets and clean up those families who's parents lust after their children and where Uncle Henry is giving niece Sally a poke!

I'm also proud to see The People continue to turnout in drove after all these months. One of the things I did during its first incarnation was ensure we had to as close to 100% turnout as possible, and clearly those in charge now have continued The Party under that goal. Praise be to The People now and forever more.

Amen

The Federalists have been a one man show for a long time now. I feel bad for Yankee. He's really running the party alone. By the time I finally went back to The Party, which had been calling for me beyond the hills for months, it was literally the two of us communicating and no one else. Losing Hagrid was pretty much their end, but losing tmth(activity wise at least) and ZuWo hurt very much too.

I miss Update Sad

I wish he'd come back.

Congrats on making it back in. I was worried there for a second

Job well done, my friends. I am proud to see the accomplishments The Party achieved over the weekend. As The People's Voice grows, so does the voice of progress, love, respect, and humility.

As with all victories, our mission does not stop at the campaign victory party. Once our hangovers subside, we must govern, and I know we will. We are, after all, serving The People, and failure to service Their wishes results in your house being burned down by a mob.

Endorsed, sweet Flo. I am confident you'll do a great job as Governor. Just don't let me forget to vote!

Aye, FTR. I wasn't aware I was still in the legislature, but now I know i am!

Not necessary, unless we just want to complicate things.

ODF is practicing economic forecasting and economic history without a license. Ugh.

What's he saying?

He's talking about how the drop in oil prices is signaling a potential recession, which I guess could be true, but as of now all the economic indicators are showing that the economy is still in solid shape, albeit income inequality is still a problem. The one good thing about the drop in oil is that people are spending that extra income on consumer goods, as the CPI is at the highest levels in years.

The only thing the low oil is hurting is profits at oil companies, and that has actually hurt the stock market. I am invested in several natural gas drilling companies and have seen their stock prices drop 60-80%, and now the overall markets are selling off too. I have no idea if this is short term or what, but I can't see oil prices staying this cheap forever.

The Party. I know Yankee will disagree,  but I don't see how this is in any way, shape or form a win for the Federalists. Sorry buddy Tongue

Poor bushie. I assume the diet is dead too. He's probably nursing his headache and spells at Braum's.
19  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Taxpayer Receipt Act on: December 13, 2014, 03:32:01 pm
maybe. I just worry about the expense of putting together and mailing such a report. I just assume the vast majority won't read it, but I could be wrong. I won't stand in the way if we all favor this of course.

Congrats to both Oakvale and sawx. I am confident they will continue to lead this party in the Spirit of The People for the months to come. The Party has seen great strides in the last few months, and I see only good things in our future.

I promise to become more visible in the future, but right now, retirement isn't too bad Wink

$2.64 at Costco for premium gas, which unfortunately is all my car will take. $2.24 for regular.
22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Taxpayer Receipt Act on: December 11, 2014, 07:49:52 pm
How many people would read this? Maybe just make it available upon request?

His life is collapsing again without Update. I wonder how long he holds out.
24  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS: Speaker PiT Commemoration Act on: December 11, 2014, 01:44:34 pm
Probably a good idea. The cotton field days are dead and so is activity at points.

Am I still in the legislature?

RIP JOB

Hasn't he already missed time due to illness a week or so in? I'll be surprised if he makes it through the day.
