Need a napkin to clean up your drawers?

Have you ever written a post that isn't aggressive or sarcastic in tone?

Yes, to legitimate posters. I really don't waste my time with left wing hacks and religious bigots like you.

As often as I get upset with some of your comments....that was perfectly legitimate.

Oh boy! George Romney.
An American hero. One of the greatest Americans in the 1900's, just like his son is one of the greatest Americans in the 2000's.

they're sort of opposites
Only assuming he's 'really' Conservative.

Romney had to pretend he was moderate, or the liberals of Taxachuestts wouldn't have voted for him. They may not be identical politcally, but they are both Romney's, and that is what is important.

Oh, so you mean you approve of lying about one's political beliefs soley to gain political power? That's good character.



Nelson Rockefeller, of course.

The Illegal Immigrant Act of 2009
Section 1: Replacement
1. F.L. 18-8 is hereby repealed

Section 2: State Services
1. No hospital or place of medical care may deny treatment to a person based on their status as an alien or non-citizen.
2. Within two weeks after the passage of this act, employers paying below the minimum wage to illegal aliens shall be prosecuted as if they were paying below the minimum wage to legal workers.
3. The government shall fully fund all services for illegal immigrants required by this law incurred by citizens of Atlasia.

Section 3: Deportation
1. Any illegal immigrant found to have committed or planned to commit a crime or act of terror shall immediately be detained and deported to their country of origin.
2. Upon detention and deportation of an illegal immigrant, any member of said immigrant's family that holds alien status may opt to return along with their family member or remain in Atlasia. This does not preclude the deportation of those aliens that wish to remain at a later date due to separate violations.
3. Detention and deportation may be delayed to allow for recovery from illness or life-threatening circumstances on a case by case basis.

I agree with Smid and Hugh.

Ultimately, the best way to make sure a market economy is able to flourish is if there is equality of opportunity. In order to be competitive, there are certain things one needs, among which are an education, health care, etc. That's where the government comes in....it has nothing to do with "big government", "socialism", whatever....it's simply making sure each person is able to live his life the best he can. That's the government's responsibilty, and its most important responsibilty.
15893  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Repeal of the Illegal Immigrant Act (Final Vote) on: April 27, 2009, 10:11:09 am
I respect Senator Lief's concerns about there being no new path to citizenship for illegals that come to Atlasia from now on, and I would definitely vote against this legislation if there was any indication that former illegals would lose their citizenship for any reason that was acquired under the old law (obviously, there are legal restraints on that sort of thing, as PiT and Smid pointed out numerous times.).

Ultimately...I don't know if getting rid of a path to citizenship will really serve as a deterrent again illegal immigration, as Purple State suggests. I'm not sure it's possible to say at this point, although I do believe that something needs to be done to show potential illegals that their actions won't be rewarded should they come to this country after this bill becomes law. Obviously...what illegals received under the previous law has no effect on what future policy necessarily needs to be....and I ultimately think it's worth giving a try.

My vote is AYE.

I would also be interested in the President's reasoning for his veto, but I'm sufficiently convinced of the merits of this bill that I can still vote in favor of overriding his veto at this point.

AYE

States owned land in Palestine during the 1940s?

My great grandparents did, yes. An olive orchard to be more exact. My family had lawyers fight for monetary compensation for years. I even have a hilarious letter from one calling the Israelis "evil".

Do you support reparations for black slavery, out of interest?

Seems like it would be a similar case.
15896  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: CO2 cap-and-trade bill (Awaiting Presdential Signature/Veto) on: April 27, 2009, 08:50:08 am
As promised, I will not attempt an override, and I look forward to discussing the issue in the next Senate.

Franzl would you like to attempt a veto override?

Yes, I will seek an override.
15898  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: CO2 cap-and-trade bill (Awaiting Presdential Signature/Veto) on: April 26, 2009, 05:48:02 pm
The 19th amendment gives President Bgwah the power to amend the bill to include something about a penalty for emitting beyond issued credits, if he wishes to.

That'd be an even better idea.

my opinion can't accurately be described under the FF/HP model (or positive or negative)

It's quite a bit more complicated than that.
