1  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Pacific Times-Pacific Senate Debate on: Today at 08:11:31 am
Thank you, 1184AZ, and to the Pacific Times, for hosting this debate, and for my opponent for attending with us here today.

It has been the greatest of opportunities to serve the People of the Pacific in my capacity as a federal legislator.  I believe I have worked amicably with my colleagues to produce bills that have been fair, warranted and prudent.  Our discussion of the budget for the next fiscal year was early on moved to a clear surplus by virtue of my own targeted revenue to combat tobacco addiction and related disease, and legislation to protect the environment was passed as part of a key priority of my party, the Earth Liberation Front, which I am proud to represent.

I have also worked to protect the interests of the Pacific by defending them both from disgraceful attacks against the autonomy of women across the nation in a convoluted attempt to regulate doctors that provide essential services out of their jobs, and against the efforts of a federal government eager to subvert the will of the People by completely transferring its regional authorities to the federal executive branch, without any judicial or legislative oversight.  It is important to have a Senator who will stand firm against these affronts to the Pacific.

I mean a lot of the 'no' respondents probably think the draft should be abolished.

It's more important to abolish the draft than to get women to register for it, anyway, in terms of legislative priorities.

In what pundits have said to be a potentially game-changing turn of events, post-debate analysis reveals that Hillary and Bernie supporters alike claim victory for their respective candidates!

Actually what most pundits say is that she finally found a succinct and compelling anti-Sanders message: that she isn't an single-issue candidate like him.


If Clinton is unable to focus on a single narrative this late into the primary, I'm very worried what a skillful manipulator like Donald Trump is going to do as the Republican nominee.  Clinton is going to lose this election for us, in all likelihood.

Anyway, Sanders' focus on racial justice, reforming the criminal justice system, and a humane immigration policy make it clear that he is far from a 'single issue' candidate.  If Hillary Clinton thinks it's a good strategy to go around calling the rigged economy a "SINGLE ISSUE", she has even worse advisers than we thought!

Really, I think the problem is that Hillary is still an instinctively hawkish person.  It's not her genius, but her instincts, that are the problem.

Yes.  She is instinctively hawkish and for her to pretend she is some great friend of Obama after dog whistling through the entire 2008 primary is beyond absurd.  It really is a disgrace to the Democratic party that we would be considering a standard bearer who thinks it "sends a message" to deport children, that we will "never ever" have single payer because it's too hard (?), that it's okay to lie and bet against the American people by assuming they will never vote for a black candidate.  There's a reason Republicans are okay with Hillary Clinton.  They have plenty in common.

let's be clear here, most of Carson's voters support other candidates now that he's vacationing in Florida permanently.  you don't go out and clean up your likes
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sanders voted for the DREAM Act on: February 12, 2016, 01:31:29 am
He voted against it because it would take away jobs of existing Americans and drive down wages. He won't admit that, though, because he wants to court the Latino vote.

He didn't vote against the Dream Act, just to be sure.  He did vote against the immigration reform bill in 2007.

Bernie got way more votes in the NH primary than anyone else ever has.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton received less than Donald Trump.  Sure, let's talk about voter turnout.  LOL
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why did Sanders vote against the DREAM Act? on: February 12, 2016, 12:44:44 am
Also, why in the world did Sanders say at the PBS debate that he's against Obama's immigration policy?

Sanders is against the deportations of children fleeing violence in Central America.  When Hillary Clinton defended these deportations, she said that they "send a message" to the families of these children that people smuggling is dangerous.  It was a disgusting rebuke of humanitarianism and one of the many bad answers Clinton gave in the debate.

In December 2010, Sanders voted for the Dream Act.

If that isn't pandering, I don't know what is.

I'm not looking forward to the barrage of condescending comments and possibly racial slurs when Sanders loses South Carolina badly.

From Bill Clinton?

Interestingly, since going to college, I've come to rely on fast food less and less. I've more than compensated in calories though thanks to alcohol, sadly.

alcohol is generally healthier than mcdonald's, so don't sweat it

Rubio was pathetic.  He really thinks lowly of the voters if the best he can do is repeat the same tired non-answer to every question.  DESPICABLE!

On a personal level, I have seen this nominee espouse views which are abhorrent at worst and misguided at best.  I am loathe to support the installment of a game moderator who sees the world from the perspective of a hateful bible-basher, but I am also concerned that it is wrong to simply scare away a prospective nominee who promises to do a good job and remain active because of his backwards ideology.  Noting that this position must be strictly nonpolitical, I therefore cast a vote in favor of the nominee.

Despicable. Let's hope that loyal Democrats will crush the socialist codger from Vermont for his attempts to denigrate the greatest President of the last 50 years.


Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed a new book out this week: Buyer’s Remorse: How Obama Let Progressives Down by Bill Press.

I thought you were a good poster back in the day.  Guess you've always been a hack.

But I thought the world would hate Hillary Clinton because she's a warmonger or something.

Generally international analysis is kept pretty simple - people sweat if the Republicans win, and are relieved if the Democrats win.

I am certainly not interested in grandstanding against President Griffin's plans because I do not care what happens to the Pacific and neither do her residents. The Senate and the President can come up with whatever pretend solution they want to solve a problem that is presently unsolvable.

I will no longer be dignifying the President with responses in regards to the Senate Committee.  He is unable and unwilling to process viewpoints contrary to his own and therefore it is not feasible for him to have 'full reign' over the Pacific - or, frankly, anything else - and for this reason I cannot, in good conscience, vote to give him the singular authority he craves.  His paranoid conjecture aside, he complains about the lack of activity in the Senate, Atlasia's premier legislative body, (despite my own efforts to keep the Senate moving), while lambasting the idea that for a small region such as the Pacific, a universal legislature could ever work; when, as the past record shows, it has, and it was far more successful than his nonsense elected legislature.  His decrying of the federal legislative body while demanding further legislative bodies elsewhere is either brilliant performance art or just the standard lack of self awareness we have come to expect from a President who has presided over a period of mismanaged decline.

I would be happy to testify to this committee if they so desire.

I noted your prior testimony and appreciate its insight, and if you have further thoughts, we would be glad to hear them.  The work you are doing in regards to Western Region preparation looks very solid.  Thank you, as always, for your continued service to the Pacific Region and its residents.
