1  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Polnut for Senate HQ - Campaign Launch 'Experience with Purpose' on: Today at 05:09:47 am

Washington Sq Park, New York NY

My fellow Atlasians,

I want to thank you so much for coming out this evening.

The issues we face are not easy, they are complex and difficult. They do not permit us the luxury of ideology or simple academic thought. It is a time for serious people, who have a desire to deliver the results we all need.

I know one thing from my history in Atlasia, if you want the job and you want to do it well, you need to show the people who are voting that you're serious about the job. With the issues we, as a nation, face, we cannot afford seat-warmers. Every single person who sits in the Senate, needs to be there for right reasons. They need to show they want to work across party and ideological lines to help our fellow citizens.

I am running because I have a record to delivering results and a record of putting aside my personal views to assist those who need help. I worked with the Senate to get our troops home, I worked to ensure homeowners were protected from illegal and unethical practices and I will continue to work to make sure the disabled and those who sacrifice to care for them have the support they need.

I also know we need people in the Senate who have the experience of dealing with international affairs. My record is strong and speaks to a desire to reduce our footprint and to increase our voice.

I say to my fellow Atlasians, we have challenges, many are difficult and complex... but those who serve in the Atlasian Senate need to be there for the right reasons and to serve the best interests of all, even if we don't agree.

None of this happens without your help, thank you all.

The NSW Labor conference has voted to abolish the Socialist objective, to support a 50:50 caucus to membership method of electing the state party leader, and to reject John Faulkner's preselection reforms, thankfully.

Yes, it's horrible that local people should have any say in who represent them. Just as long as the SDA get to keep their power...

Tony Abbott proposes sending armed Australian police and troops to the crash site, which others are reacting to with skepticism:

I'm pleased to inform you that thanks to former Secretary Superique Israel and Palestine have closed a peace deal, which means that the OTL invasion of Gaza isn't happening right now. In regards to Venezuela, well...

If reelected... I look forward to voting against this in the Senate.

Just in general Senator...

I don't get why donating or supporting candidates/campaigns you believe in is insane?

I'm not worried about it.  I've got a good job so I will get paychecks to replenish the money when it comes out.

See, this is a problem! You just threw away $58 and you hardly make a massive salary to where you can just throw away that money on a scam. That's irresponsible even if it is $58.

Also, your credit card number could be used for all kinds of things now. Who do you get your card through? Do they have fraud monitoring? At least through some companies they alert you if your card is used without being swiped.

Did you just piss away basically a whole day's pay (after taxes)...

Greg Combet said Julia Gillard offered to stand down in June 2013 if he would run against Rudd for the leadership.

Having actually wasted a minute and half of my life listening to this:

Oh, god, emoviolence is even worse than I imagined it would be.

Emoviolence is a pretty extreme example of "acquired taste", I didn't like it at all the first time I heard it either. This kind of makes sense considering it's an offshoot of an offshoot of an offshoot and often makes use of techniques that would simply be considered objectively bad in most mainstream musical genres, such as intentionally playing out of tune or using more distorted recording.

But Orchid is probably one of the most accessible bands of the genre. On the other end of the spectrum you have this.

If that is 'accessible'? Then yeah, there will be no meeting of minds on this and I can find redeeming features in most genres.

Bushie... new life lesson. Just assume ARE being scammed until you do enough research to determine you're not.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: FL-Quinnipiac: Clinton beats Christie by 21 on: July 24, 2014, 06:55:32 pm
Um... consider the fact that I think Hillary's support in FL is pretty steady. The GOP haven't got a CLUE who is running or what, Democrats and everyone else leaning that way are only really thinking about Hillary.

So in reality it should be reported as
Clinton 54 - Christie 33 - Don't know - 13 - I'm pretty sure a big portion of those don't knows would fall behind Christie if he were the nominee.

Doing a quick search on www.usps.com, I can't find any job openings in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Organisations like the USPS do not necessarily advertise specific jobs, apply online and they can draw up a merit list to fill positions as they occur.

And for the last time... GO DIRECTLY TO THE ACTUAL ORGANISATION'S WEBSITE!!!

A pretty standard modern Catholic conservative, with a greater focus on wedge social issues over traditional social justice and economic equity.
16  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Have you ever had a job that paid less than promised? on: July 23, 2014, 08:45:22 pm
No, but it's NOT unusual for companies to make inflated claims of what you CAN make......which is about the same thing, no?

I agree that this is probably what's happened to Jeff on multiple occasions. So "promise" is a word that has been used very liberally. I'll always share with sales people what their potential is ... and if that's the type of job someone will be doing, then you get them excited by the potential. But what's on paper is the promise.

And Jeff assumes that what is promised as the maximum is what he'll be able to achieve... as opposed to earning the minimum.

Sure. Well, I'm a party member... so there's that - but I do donate for specific projects/advertising drives etc.

Quite frankly, this is the best thing Bushie's parents have done for him in years.

Yeah, it should be common place for them following the law, but all I'm saying is that with my recent places of employment who did not pay me what they promised, it is not a light thing.

It's just relative... the others were terrible and this lot are just doing what they're obliged to do
20  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Update XV: Stuck Inside of Tulsa with the Oklahoma City Blues Again on: July 23, 2014, 12:37:23 am
My employer earned big points with me today by paying me exactly what they promised me.  That's not a light thing in my book.  It should be a no-brainer,  but with my job history is actually a remarkable feat.  I'm still going to look for another job, but this makes me want to work as hard as I can for the time I'm there.

They earned big points for not violating labor laws?

lol. That was exactly what I thought when I read that.

Yup... I mean, not f***ing him over and obeying the law is the new standard of good employers?

It's not a very "nice" thing to do... but gated communities and projects are far more offensive to me.

If anything, perhaps all the discussions about the cooking channel will help Bushie learn how to cook without assistance!

And he never told us what all he ate this weekend Sad

You cannot expect him to eat well when there's all of this excitement.

I don't know about anyone else, but when I don't get decent food for a while, usually due to travelling etc, I feel dreadful.

... so again, Bushie, your diet is probably the one making you sick.

I think he'll run only to prove that he could... he won't get anywhere, but I expect him to run.

She's not really as awful of a person as the internet makes her out to be.

"... but but Iraq!? and she actually has some kind of ambition to be President?!?!... sociopath!!!"
