Abstain.

70s is pre-Watson, but you can include him if you like.

Since the debate has been quiet for awhile, can I request that this go to a vote? I'd like to get started immediately if confirmed.

Aye

I didn't call it a civil war. I called it a civil conflict, which it most certainly was. It had its own wiki page and is now regarded as canon. As such, because it went as far as it did, the remaining loose ends do need tied up.

Not really.

I'm of a different view.

Abstain

Not that I wouldn't vote to confirm you, Flo. But given that I'm incoming GM and I believe it should be separate from bias, I'm abstaining on all confirmations.

If he'd stayed out of Iraq and had resigned earlier, Blair would probably have a much more positive legacy.

She is going to run even if the prospects aren't looking good. She is not a quitter.

I don't think you realize how hilarious that statement looks. Stop acting like the Ron Paul people. You sound like a cult member.

I'd be willing to play.
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which Republican candidate would do best in Pennsylvania? on: November 17, 2014, 08:30:00 pm
Paul would do the best here in Pittsburgh because of his father's ties to the region. Yinzers will push any local connection, no matter how tenuous when it comes to stuff like that. Mitch Daniels would do well here too because he was born right here in tiny Monongahela, PA.

Christie would do better in Philly, but there's no way he'd get over here. The accent is wrong as it sounds much too close to Philadelphia and he comes off something like a Tony Soprano. Anathema to Pittsburgh's old school.

To what extent will your news events diverge from reality?

On occasion, it will be necessary to do so given Atlasia's political situation that stories will diverge from the realities faced by the U.S. However, all of my news stories will be written to be realistic. No aliens, no mass suicide bombings across the country, etc.

I will deal with fallout from the Civil Conflict but as to the rest, my blueprint for how to operate this job is to provide realistic issues that would potentially be faced by the nation. In order for this job to gain back ANY credibility at all, it has to be done. The storylines have to return to earth and be as realistic as possible if the job is going to gain back any sort of credible standing.

It's good to see BK in the Senate!.....Again....
16  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Confirmation Hearing: Dr. Cynic for GM on: November 16, 2014, 10:10:48 pm
I will not vote against, but I will abstain. Again, it's not that I have anything wrong with you personally, Cynic. It's just that I've no confidence in the position itself, and don't feel comfortable confirming anyone to a spot with so much power and yet so little impact on the course of events in the game itself.

Well, I respect that.

It never interested me, really. The only skill I particularly possess well is the ability to "play pretend". It's why I went into acting.

I'm deathly afraid of tornadoes

And that's how you decided to boot out Virginia :p?

Tornadoes don't really climb mountains, which is where I was gonna suggest next. It's the Appalachia area  that gets all the snow, where the government is at a comical low, and there's plenty of history to be had as well.

Taxes in the state are "reasonable" too.

Worth another look.

My aunt and uncle lived in Stafford, VA for almost 40 years... Never mentioned Tornadoes...

But if you like the cold, rolling landscape, plenty of jobs and low taxes, I would suggest Pittsburgh. However, being as you're a Republican, I don't want you to move here, so please don't consider us. Tongue

My fiancee lived just a few streets away from him when we first met (She lives in Brisbane now). In fact, her mother was involved in a bike group with Abbott's wife and absolutely could not stand her.

Laura once described Abbott as "psychotic". Now, she's not someone who is even interested in politics at all on any level, but based on everything I've heard, I'll take her word for it. HP.

I hear Alert, Nunavut is lovely this time of year.

I actually prefer this version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1v_EcjeIkg

You just destroyed my whole childhood. Angry

Meh, D+.

Honestly, it didn't keep in time with the music or the lyrics. Not really at any point at all. If you're going to parody a song you should at least do one or the other.
23  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Papal Patch (some clarification if you even bother) on: November 14, 2014, 06:40:19 pm
Just so you guys know, if I'm confirmed as GM, I'm going to bring you into the stories.
24  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Confirmation Hearing: Dr. Cynic for GM on: November 14, 2014, 04:32:40 pm
I think another problem is that we diverged from the "real life" timeline a helluva long time ago. Atlasia is simply not in a world where "real world" events are even remotely close to happening.

This is true, but realistic storylines are still within the realm of possibility for the country, even though Atlasia diverged a long time ago.
25  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Co-determination Act of 2014 (Debating) on: November 14, 2014, 03:46:12 pm
I think this could be good legislation on the whole to experiment with. I believe there are several companies in Europe, particularly Germany, that operate in a manner similar to this. The size of the pilot program is probably a bit too large, but I think this is something that should be experimented. I don't see that it particularly expands union power, considering unions in Atlasia enjoy a good deal of influence already (some of which has been scaled back), this seems something worth trying.

Just my two cents on the matter.
