Thatcher was the best leader of the last 100 years, Bush ranks towards the absolute bottom.

Yep. Massive inflation, high unemployment, bungling that caused the Falklands War in the first place, the poll tax riots... She should have thanked her lucky stars that she had to go against Michael Foot and Neil Kinnock and that they won the Falklands War. If she didn't have the Falklands victory, the Alliance may have broken through or Labour could have won with Denis Healey if Healey had been more forthcoming with the Labour right and gotten himself elected over Foot.

Thatcher was terrible. I'd actually go with Bush, because at least Bush seems like an amiable guy. I may hate his politics, but at least I wouldn't want to punch him.

I'll support the motion to table whenever it arises. Nothing that could be said could make me support something like this. It's a waste of time in my view and accomplishes nothing.

I'm not going to let this bill only apply to cooperatives, because there simply aren't enough of them for this bill to put a dent in the problem. If you want to add them in tandem, that's fine. If not, then for this reason, then the amendment is unfriendly.

I don't honestly get it. No one in the NE consented to this. We never had a referendum or anything. We're just carved up and given no choice in the matter. There was really no reason to negotiate. This plan should be rejected.

I'm fine with Duke being VP for awhile. He knows what he's doing.

How do you view the SOEA position in relation to the GM? Specifically, how do you view the relationship between you as a cabinet official and the GM?
90  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The GM Independence Amendment (Debating) on: October 13, 2014, 03:20:51 am
Just to clarify, is this the intended final version?

Quote
The GM independence Amendment
Article VIII, Sec. 2, Clause 5 shall be amended as follows:
The President shall appoint a Game Moderator with the advice and consent of the Senate.
    The Game Moderator may at any time be dismissed by the President.
    The Game Moderator may at any time be removed by the Senate by a two thirds vote, without presidential approval.
    The President has the right to petition the Senate for GM removal at any time.

Correct. Polnut, if you'd be so kind as to propose the amendment? I don't want to do another one and mistake the intent...

I've never heard it, but I absolutely hate bass, so I'll probably just vote horrible.

I move we go to a final vote.
94  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Northeast Governor - Magnolia Tree Polls on: October 12, 2014, 07:19:57 pm
I like both guys well enough, but I believe Barnes would be the better Governor and I'll be voting for him regardless of party affiliation.

Hell, I don't like a damn thing about him Tongue

Kal's always been a good friend. I really liked doing Americana with him and Mechaman. Those were the good old days.

I've got a proposed bill that will abolish tuition fees for Atlasian students nationwide. I assume these loans can be used for other expenses which aren't covered in the bill I have proposed. This also helps with re-certifications.

Amendment is friendly.
98  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Regulatory Overhaul and Review Act (Debating) on: October 11, 2014, 05:39:45 pm
As this has gone on, I find myself increasingly inclined against this.

Nay

What is the meaning of "The GM may be removed if their behavior is characterized to be attacking a particular Atlasian, be they officeholder or not."   Is that through the process of the Senate 2/3s vote, or does this describe an additional instance where the GM may be removed and if so by whom?

I took it to mean that was a just cause for the senate to remove the GM, but then it would be redundant, which is why it's no longer in the bill. Any non senate removal process would be counter productive to what we're trying to achieve here, so I don't think that's what cynic had in mind.

It was included to provide an instance where the GM may be removed for cause. However, at Bore's request, I withdrew that part of the amendment as you can now see.
