1  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Abolish The Pacific: a four-region plan that might be crazy enough to work on: October 26, 2014, 03:22:30 pm
Are you guys really still working on this? lol

Not having a Western-based region is silly. The Midwest/Mideast is obviously the least natural split.

Idk nobody has talked about this in ages but I like the idea.

I agree not having a western region is silly but having a western region featuring Generalissimo Simfan as the entirety of the regional government is arguably even sillier, and those appear to be our only two options right now

Governments and activity levels are always changing. The Midwest has gone through long periods of severe inactivity and one-man governments, too. Yet you propose a permanent solution to a problem that is always ebbing and flowing.

Your proposed Northwest region will have such a tiny population it would be guaranteed to be the least active region.

I understand that I don't follow Atlasia as closely as I used to. While I could see certain anti-Pacific biases are playing a role here, what I see first and foremost is an attempt to gerrymander the South into a left-wing region. Will Atlasia's conservatives really allow that? I doubt it.

Actually, recent developments have left the Pacific as a potential right-wing region. Check out the rolls.

Was I not supposed to expose your latest scheme in public? Sorry - I was just speculating, although I'm not surprised I'm correct. Smiley

I made the previous flag when there were only 10 states. What is your excuse for not having the 11th? Tongue

I believed Lief was adam for a while.  bgwah pushed the theory heavily.

Republicans will likely hold onto the Washington Senate. Democrats will gain the 48th, and Republicans will gain the 30th, resulting in the same 26-23 split we currently have.

A Democratic victory isn't impossible. There are a couple of marginally Democratic seats the Republicans picked up in 2010 that are in play, but if the primary is any indication (it usually is) they won't be flipping in November.

No. The partisans may have been more equally split between Democrats and Republicans, but they were still partisans.

Are our two posts mutually exclusive? I don't think they are. Smiley

It wasn't a bad show. It was popular, though, so naturally the usual suspects are obligated to hate it.

By the way, just because you don't make money doesn't mean yoy aren't contributing to society or are a loser. Don't you know anyone disabled? Anyway you were probably being sarcastic, I hope.
Of course if you have a good excuse to live off of somebody else then you're alright (you should still probably thank the person helping you more often).  Not being sarcastic though.  If you're a healthy 25yo with no good excuses and still living off of another person's work (whether that be mommy and daddy, a rich aunt or Uncle Sam), you're a loser.  A leach.  A drain.

Does being a woman trapped in a man's body count as a good reason?

It's similar to organ but there's definitely a subtle middle syllable in there.

The only thing that worries me is you know Jaleel White is getting ideas.

How is that worrisome? That would be amazing!

And Ukrel can re-connect with the Tanner family in a second crossover episode and accidentally clone Michelle so both of the Olsen twins can star without having to share the same character. Okay, I'm sold.

I also miss Carl Winslow.

The ex-President is using an obtuse reading of the Constitution to justify his intention of stalling and undermining the progress we are attempting to force. TNF, as Acting Senate President, and especially in a time of crisis such as this one, very much has implicit authority to cast a tiebreaking vote, especially in the face of cynical stalling tactics by the Senate right.

Oakvale, whose open slant (and most likely political stake) in this case is well-documented, should certainly not be involved in this frivolous case.

Your unsolicited political attacks are not welcome or appropriate here. Please cease posting them immediately.

Thank you.

I've always been a little disturbed at how easily some you just casually dismiss Chappaquiddick. He obviously was not a good person.


Do you have any idea how ridiculous you sound?

If Saddam had stayed in power he probably would have had to deal with the Arab Spring and the potential civil war that would ensue.
