Woohoo!

Seriously though, I'm glad you've taken up tracking this.

This should be interesting as it gets down to the nitty gritty.

If I lose, Matt, I hope you win!

Now if that isn't a ringing endorsement, I dunno what is. Wink

Get Out The Vote Rally: Pittsburgh, PA


The time is finally here, fellow Atlasians. The special election is officially upon us. What I'm asking you to do is to put me back in the Senate for the first time since 2006! (My god, has it been that long?!) This special election could be of vital importance to Atlasia. I've promised to attempt to bring forward Game Reform, which I very much intend to attempt. I've promised you I won't disappear (No, seriously, I won't). I've promised to work to combat homelessness and provide health care and an education for all.

This is the time. I ask you to send me to the Senate in hopes that I can work toward all those things. I ask you to get out the vote for me (or other candidates if you deem it necessary). Let's try to make things better in Atlasia (or worse if you're a member of the Bad Party)!

The Steelers have unofficially retired several numbers; 12, 36, 32, 58, 59, 86, 88.... .

in honor of the great Emmanuel Sanders?


Lynn Swann, you Neanderthal. Tongue


haha obviously. It's a bit odd to have an  "unofficially retired number" given to a marginal receiver.

Well, they semi-retired a lot of numbers that they've used again and some they haven't. I was probably thinking of 82 in there as well. After Stallworth, really only Thigpen and Randle El have really worn the number.

We probably won't be seeing 7 for awhile after Ben goes either.

12  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Coalition for the Protection of Gun Rights (CPGR)- Endorsement vote! on: July 31, 2014, 10:02:37 pm
I'm not going to ask for an endorsement, but if you wish to know my views on gun rights, I'll be happy to put them forward, irregardless of how you choose to endorse.

I support Atlasian citizens right to bear arms. I don't support an assault weapons ban.

I do, however, support background checks, mandatory waiting periods and gun education training for anyone who wishes to own a gun. Provided one isn't a criminal, has no history of mental illness, and knows how to responsibly own one, I don't see why someone couldn't own a gun.

Press Release from the Office of Dr. Cynic:

Pittsburgh, PA.....

With the worrying outbreak of Ebola virus in West Africa, I think quite rightly, the SOEA has chosen to restrict travel to those nations experiencing the worst of the disease. I think Secretary Nix handled this issue quickly and correctly to quarantine this and keep it from becoming an epidemic. However, now we need to look at ways to combat those already inflicted. Going back to my previous belief that health care should be entirely free for all Atlasian citizens at the time of visit. Not only that, it's quite clear that this country needs to take a leading role in prevention of the spread by sending technical assistance abroad to these countries.

If elected to the Senate, I will make it a priority to help coordinate a response to this outbreak from the Atlasian government. We need to be mindful to keep this from becoming more serious. That includes both prevention and treatment. Travel restrictions are just the tip of the iceberg. These nations will need medicines and yes, doctors, to help in treating this illness. I'm confidant that Atlasia can continue to be a leader in the global community in preventing the spread of Ebola.

I still haven't heard from the SOIA. I'm hoping something by Monday.
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Small Business on: July 31, 2014, 03:18:03 am
I'm all for added incentives that allow small businesses to pay better wages. It's different from a large corporation. You could give them all the tax breaks in the world, but they still will only pay their workers seven or eight bucks an hour.
18  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Steelers to retire Joe Greene's #75 on: July 31, 2014, 01:06:16 am
It's well deserved, but I'm stunned that they did it all the same. The Steelers have unofficially retired several numbers; 12, 36, 32, 58, 59, 86, 88.... But they were always kind of stubbornly idiosyncratic by choosing not to officially retire any other number but Ernie Stautner's.

It feels very odd to me... Sort of like when they came up with Steely McBeam, or when Cowher left... The Steelers are stubbornly obsessed with maintaining a sense of continuity, that any sort of change feels like it's this major world turning event.

It's weird to be called Mr. President, especially since it was so long ago and I wasn't on the job a long time.

I will say that I hope you keep this kind of thing up! I absolutely love your coverage.

The only real option here is Grant.

A vote for Greeley or O'Conor is a vote to turn the South back over to the white supremacist Democratic Party and destroy everything that the war was fought for. The only person capable of fighting the Klan and suppressing the enemies of the Republic is Grant, and that's who I would vote for.

I vote Greeley, mostly out of sympathy for him. I think also you're confusing Greeley with Horatio Seymour. Seymour was a racist and white supremacist who not only hated blacks, but natives as well. Greeley was nothing of the sort. He was a Republican, the same as Grant and he was an early advocate of something I think you also keenly advocate, socialism. He broke with Grant mostly due to the scandals. On politics, they were fairly close. The Democrats supporting Greeley was a cruel irony, considering that he had spent years denouncing them.
Greeley supported ending reconstruction, which would've ended up giving control of the south up to the KKK.

I didn't say he wasn't wrong on that. His reasons for wanting to end Reconstruction were more naive than racist. I think if he'd lived and been elected and seen the Klan taking a foothold, he probably would have sent federal troops back in. Greeley was more misguided on that than hostile. I believe that, especially since he had supported Grant in 1868 and was closely aligned with the radicals.

Like I said, I voted for him more out of sympathy than anything else. I knew Grant would be winning by a large margin.

I'd be mortified, but I'd try to keep it to myself. I don't see the family get together's being peaceful though.
