76  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you have voted on United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379? on: July 21, 2014, 10:01:26 pm
Nay. If it was any kind of a real motion, it would have included antisemitism as well as all other forms or racism. This was rather a political move to destabilize Israel's internal politics and I believe sabotage any peace accords that could have come between the Israeli government and the Palestinians.

I say we cut the lowest-bracket income tax from 0,13% to 0,10%. I'd do a lot of good, and we'd still have a surplus. It's something, don't you think? We could do more of this, but I'd like to put this first before we do anything else ^^

Yep. Those low income folks aren't being unduly burdened in this particular region and overall, taxation is fairly low. We should definitely look towards rises in transport as we've said and I have a bill toward the homeless coming.

This is legislation I agreed to sponsor for Senator Bore. The amendment proposed by Barnes is considered friendly.

If they think it's unconstitutional, let them take it to the court then.

As far as an article, ordinarily, I would write one, but at the moment, I'm on my phone and that's more effort than my fat thumb can go through right now Tongue .... However it could go something along the lines of "contention in the Assembly as Governor and legislature at loggerheads"... And then you'd get your story. Or, say a homeless vet is attacked by a street gang... Something like that, just so we can have specific issues to address.

Because we don't need legislation to do it. Talleyrand (or anyone) can simply ask someone. This legislation is a sideshow.

But they haven't. I'd like to see something done and this sets up perimeters for operation.
93  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: The Taking Things Into Our Own Hands Act (Debating) on: July 17, 2014, 12:53:21 pm
On top of that, if there was interest in this -- people would be doing it. A legislative decree for this is pointless. The only way to get increased activity is to do extremely controversial things (ie legalize bestiality) or recruit more people to the regions.

No one does it because up to this point, we've left it to the GM. With the GM having a full plate on federal issues, how can one expect them to go into regional news as well? If this doesn't work, then fine, the legislation expires. I don't see why you are so opposed to this.

If we have no regional engines, not even operating under the eye of the GM, then what would be the point of having regions at all? Every state has a statewide newspaper that deals with only issues for say New York or Washington.

Why would it hurt to get something done on a regional level?

98  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: The Taking Things Into Our Own Hands Act (Debating) on: July 16, 2014, 10:23:58 pm
I will oppose this legislation. Game Moderator and regional narration/storyline should be controlled solely at the federal level to avoid conflicts. The game engine team is already broken, this bill will only serve to make things worse.

However, I would support a thread for a Northeast "news outlet" of some sort. We don't need to do this by legislative decree.

Uh, sir... doesn't Section 2 Clause 2 solve that already? ^^

Section 2 Clause 2 is pointless because it's inherent. No matter if the Northeast passes it or not, its still true. Its not as if we're legislating that. The game engine should be done at the federal level, the regions should have no part in legislating it.

Why not?
99  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: The Taking Things Into Our Own Hands Act (Debating) on: July 16, 2014, 02:24:24 pm

Glad you came around.

Anywho, I'm bearish but there isn't any harm in passing this as a trial program. Cynic seems like a natural pick for the job so he could perhaps set a 'model' for future Agency heads.

You just happened to have caught me at a period when I was feeling extremely irritable on other things, so I had taken it out on the Assembly over the bill.

Like I said, I want to see this done and if a trial period is deemed necessary for it, then so be it. That said, if it works out, the next time I bring it up, it will be permanent Tongue

I just did mine out of boredom and I do like answering questions... Do you agree that just about every poster on the Atlas is narcissistic in some way or another?
