Aye

I tell you what, if you put it to a national referendum. Settle the issue that way. I am just not about to overturn a law that I voted to allow a few months ago because if I could not find a reason to legally oppose it then, I sure as hell cannot now.

Being a Northeasterner, I'm not going to vote for this. Even though I have always had misgivings about polygamy, I can't see why it's within the scope of a government to tell someone who or how many people they can love. So, either way, I'm voting against this.
5  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Adoption is an Alternative Act (Debating) on: August 29, 2014, 03:01:26 pm
Hopefully the amendment is friendly as it's one I'd definitely support.

It's going to be an interesting parliament...
7  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Clean Energy Act of 2014 (Debating) on: August 27, 2014, 06:31:17 pm
Upon my swearing in I will fight to repeal this provided that it passes.

Which will be fought in turn.

My office has received your letter of August, 27 stating your intentions. My response is: KISS MY ASS!

First Senate post and this is as good a place as any. Hi guys, I'm the new guy from the Pacific Wink


I guess I generally support this bill. In Austria, there is an institution called the "Babyklappe" (baby hatches), some warm spot under a glas panel in some hospitals where mothers can leave their child anonymously. An alarm then goes off, so the child is sought after, while the mother can get away then before being seen by anyone. This bill would essentially do the same thing, just the anonymity is not given. No one in this honourable body can ever experience what the mothers must feel in that particular moment, when they give up their child. I guess it would be better then if we too would give the mothers that anonymity, so they can at least keep their decency before the worker in the particular institution.
Once this amendment is approved, I'd like to offer an amendment enabling this.



I don't know. I feel like the child should have SOME right to the information somehow. Surely there is a way to protect the privacy and eventually give those children some kind of closure should they desire it.
11  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The Robin Williams Memorial Suicide Copy-cat Prevention Act (Debating) on: August 27, 2014, 01:58:26 pm
I'm going to vote in favor of this bill as it now reads. Getting Robin Williams' name and the "suicide copy cat" stuff out of it was necessary.
12  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Keaton House Polling: October 2014 Presidential on: August 27, 2014, 03:07:06 am
No need to add me to another poll. I won't run.
13  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The Demonstrations Act of 2014 (Debating) on: August 26, 2014, 08:26:59 pm
I feel the same way. This bill is DOA.
14  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Based God Polling: Presidential Race on: August 26, 2014, 08:23:53 pm
Tyrion and TNF.

I'd like to be put in a family mausoleum.
16  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of coal mining on: August 26, 2014, 12:33:58 pm
I know there are a ton of coal miners around here, but it's honestly a horrible activity. Not only that, but my brother's middle school and many houses in the area are built on top of abandoned mines.

That middle school has had problems with sinkholes. There was a massive sinkhole in Monongahela not long ago just down the street from where my aunt lives. It's all from abandoned coal mines. There's more to the issue than just the environment. If you live in Western PA, especially outside of Pittsburgh, there is a big chance your house sits over an abandoned mine. There's a big chance you're gonna need home owners insurance because after my previous experiences, there's no way you should think you're safe. Hell, one just opened up in a parking lot in Ross Township a week or so ago and it swallowed a car that had the driver in it. Luckily for the individual, someone was quick thinking enough to pull her out. Where do you guys think that comes from? More abandoned coal mines.
17  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: War Powers Amendment (Amendment at vote) on: August 26, 2014, 12:24:43 pm
Aye
18  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Repeal of the War Powers Resolution Act (Debating) on: August 26, 2014, 12:20:18 pm
Aye
19  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The Demonstrations Act of 2014 (Debating) on: August 25, 2014, 03:15:07 pm
I'll be honest with you. I see this bill actually creating more unrest than solving it. Not only do I disagree with the premise of forcing protesters to always apply for permits and entirely killing organic protest (though that is of lesser concern). In fact, I can see even deeper conflicts arising when police attempt to forcibly break up a protest that hadn't had a permit and had been otherwise peaceful.

My biggest concern is that this bill could actually inflame the problem. I'd like to hear what Senator Cassius has to say in regards to that, but that is right now my biggest worry.
20  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of Senator Cynic: Did We Win?! on: August 25, 2014, 02:49:57 pm
Thanks guys. Now, let's see what we can do.
21  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Office of JCL on: August 25, 2014, 02:10:38 am
Congratulations on the election you desired so deeply. I look forward to your and TNF's future slagging matches.

Hopefully we can find common ground in the mist of the slag fests. Seriously.

In all seriousness, I wish you best of luck!

Congrats on your victory. No matter our differences of opinion, I consider you a friend an I really appreciate how hard you work for what you feel is good for the game.

I know you hate my views as much as I hate yours. That said though, you were a fine gentleman during the campaign and I want to offer you my congratulations on your election. You were deserving if for no other reason than the very good campaign you ran.

Congrats, Mr. President Senator-elect Polnut.
