I'm glad this finally got out in the public eye.

I don't support this at all, the government shouldn't be able to say who can own what.

That would allow incredibly unfair advantages to strong and already established media businesses. There's "free market competition" and then there's "setting the stage for bullies to dominate smaller corporations."

Eh.. Aye.

     This is much needed, I must say.
Agreed, wave it through.

I didn't think it would be that popular, but it should be said that this is just slightly altered existing US policy. It's not healthy for any market to have the audience heavily dominated by one man or one station.

I didn't mean to be insulting (You'll find I'm just that way Tongue) but my point was that we have a left-wing party (JCP) and a center-left/center/center-right party (DA) so I don't know why there was some need to create another left-wing party. We had two left-wing parties in addition to the DA once, and all it did was split the left-wing vote and lead to centrists and moderates taking over the Senate. (With all respect to the DA, of course.)

I do find it disgusting that these new members have somehow formed an ignorant newbie mob to bring him back. He was banned for some damn good reasons and he's a backstabbing dick. He lies, schemes, hacks, and neglected all of his responsibilities. He'll be a good guy to you as long as he NEEDS you to carry out whatever half-assed Team Rocket-esque plan for world-domination he has cooked up.

However, that being said, I'd rather his ass be here in public, rather than PMing people in the shadows.
13808  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Would you like a non-Atlasia Atlas Wiki? on: June 10, 2009, 04:26:41 am
Eh, I don't really see the point. The only thing that would be on it would be everyone battling over popular posters' bios, or the entire thing devolving into individual posters stroking themselves on their pages.

The Atlasia wiki serves a purpose, at least.

Well, the good news is, BushOK apparently found someone quick to rush into things just like him. Maybe it is true love. Tongue

No, but a balanced budget should be maintained when the economy allows.

I'm glad someone got it. I was a little overwhelmed by the ridiculous amount of Senate rules Tongue

While I can't say I expected Atlasia's left to stay under one party for long, I'm curious to know what you think the benefit of a new Democratic Party is.

Impatience, pretty much. There's no real point to doing it other than "Thrust myself into the spotlight!"

Looks fantastic, I have no problems with it at all. Smiley

Marokai, can you explain the wording on "federally subsidized lunch program"?

If we're only talking about spending money on salad bars in schools, then I'm perfectly fine with it.

Yes specifically the salads is what I was referring to.

Although if we actually don't have a subsidized school lunch program for poor students then we need one. Tongue

I don't understand half of ya'll sometimes. On one hand, people bitch because we aren't active or doing enough, on the other hand, someone bitches because people take things seriously and actually propose something sensible.

Salad is yucky.

Perhaps you're not eating the right salad Tongue

I hate salads, they make me want to throw up. I see no point in having this, school food is bad enough.

Salads are perfectly healthy. It provides students an alternative, educates younger children in middle school on proper healthy eating habits, and creates a fair bit of jobs. It's a win-win-win I think Wink

I mean, it an ok idea, but I think things like this should be up to local school district not the ferdual government. But it his bring debate to the senate.

I support regional rights and all, but I don't support a region's right to impede on "no brainer" progress. The Southeast once voted down an initiative that would've banned some unhealthy foods and beverages. I happen to think something like that is rather silly to do. If we can't leave it for people to decide, then that's why the federal government exists.

Allowing unhealthy things continue like that ends up a drain on the federal government's resources in the end, anyhow.
