Senator Rowan, you have already voted. Do you know what happens when a Senator tries to vote twice?
15552  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Feline Protection Act (in Debate) on: March 16, 2011, 05:41:57 pm
That's why I hate "regional rights". There isn't "regional business" and "federal business". Anything the federal government can do to make the country better, it should do.

Unfortunately Senator, the rules do care and so does the constitution, as 8 of us are now (some of whom painfully) aware of. Tongue

I guess Snowguy and Oakie don't count since they weren't included in the memo. Tongue

What would be the general reaction if "E-verify" were to be quietly included at the 11th hour, late at night, behind closed doors? Grin

With some thought into I have decided to support the amendment offered by bgwah.


Now for procedural matters. Is the amendment still on the table and does the sponsor of the underlying bill accept it as friendly? (Yes, I realize this requires bi-polar disorder to work. Tongue)

I would like an answer to the current question as well.
15556  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Amendment to the OSPR.... (Debating) on: March 16, 2011, 05:31:53 pm
Hm, how about that a vote to expell a Senator can be held, after said Senator didn't do anything related to her/his official duties in a period of two and more weeks?

Would that include and exception for Leaves of Absence?

Aye
15559  General Politics / Economics / Impact of Japan on the World Economy on: March 15, 2011, 10:00:05 pm
Could the destruction cause significant economic problems in Europe or the US? Some very important manufacturing supply chains have been disrupted. Not to mention the impact in general on Japan's economy as a whole, the blackouts etc etc.

I'd say that Snyder, Corbet and Branstad are strongly favored at this point.  Based on his past electoral history, even after contentious and unpopular decisions, I'd say Walker can probably recover. The one I am least sure of is Kasich.

It would be wise to remember that Christie went from being disapproved of by 2-1 (although the poll is questioned there is no doubt that he was very unpopular at one point) to being approved of by a range of about 10 to 15 points in just one year. Daniels was DOA in 2008 as late as 2007 with Approvals in the range of Ernie Fletcher and Matt Blunt (both of whom are now gone).

15562  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Moshe Dayan Department of External Affaors on: March 15, 2011, 09:31:16 pm
With my resignation, the position of GTO Ambassador has become available.  I recommend Lief to that position, and urge the Senate to confirm him as soon as possible.

Perhaps you should change the second half of the last sentence as well. To something like, "I urge the President to nominate and the Senate to.....". Tongue


15563  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: General Senatorial Discussion on: March 15, 2011, 09:29:20 pm
The Privacy Protection Act was an awful thing.

Elaborate.

Blatantly unconstitutional and pointless.

You know, when I have private conservation, I don't like when the jerk is then posting it online.

Is the criteria for the constitutionality of a law based solely on whether Kalwejt doesn't like something? Tongue
15564  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Second Amendment to the Proportional Representation Act (Debating) on: March 15, 2011, 07:59:15 pm
lol, Bgwah jumped the gone. That wasn't necessarily going to lead to an amendment. It may have, or it may not have. That would have been determined by the result of the coloqui (sp?).
15565  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: No Contracts for Illegals Act (Debating) on: March 15, 2011, 07:56:27 pm
Can we get a time frame on whne those specifics will be coming?
15566  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Feline Protection Act (in Debate) on: March 15, 2011, 07:54:07 pm
The Amendment has enough votes to pass, senators have 24 hours to change their votes.

"I am going to win this election next week. The real question is what happens next year. I am going to do a lot of things that need to be done or have to be done that aren't going to be popular at all. Many of the politicians here, even on the GOP side of the aisle, are not going to like what I am going to do precisely for this very reason".


- A paraphrase of Kasich in private statement to a lesser talk radio guy prior to the election.
15568  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: General Senatorial Discussion on: March 15, 2011, 07:44:32 pm
I have instituted a new numbering system for amendments. Should I number all amendments regardless of what bill they are in order in which they are offered or should I start the numbering over for each bill.


Feline Protection Bill:
Senate Amendment 1
Senate Amendment 2

Do Not PM List Bill:
Senate Amendment 3

or


Feline Protection Bill:
Senate Amendment 1
Senate Amendment 2

Do Not PM List Bill:
Senate Amendment 1


The noticeboard currently reflects the first option while the Do Not PM list bill the second option. Which do you prefer? I like the first one the most.
15569  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: General Senatorial Discussion on: March 15, 2011, 07:38:02 pm
We could still have such a bill  though, only it would not contain the language referring to a higher power.  Since the Repeal of the Privacy Protection Act creates the false impression that there is no problem with publishing PMs, I believe this would be a good idea.

Why does the Atlasian law have double up on Forum administration. It exists over and above Atlasia and frankly takes the "Frankly, Scarlet, I don't give a damn" line when it comes to what the Atlasian government does. Hence why MasterJedi didn't and was right not to create a special exemption for Hammy and the boys as far as the NE assembly goes.

I will oppose any such attempt to restore the Privacy Protection Act. We have more to worry about then false impressions, and I think a better way can be found to combat such ignorance then restoring a flawed and potentially unconstitutional law.

Do Not PM List Act

1. Any Atlasian explicitly asking for in the Census Bureau thread shall be registered by the Registrar General in a "Do not PM list".

2. The "Do not PM list" shall be visible in one of the opening posts of the Census Bureau thread.

3. Any Atlasian wishing to campaing through PMs is requested to read the "Do not PM list" before doing.

A final vote is now open on Senate Amendement 1 to the Do Not PM List Act. Senators, please vote Aye, Nay or Abstain.
15571  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Moshe Dayan Building of the Department of External Affairs on: March 15, 2011, 07:19:47 pm
The President PMed me demanding the hearings start.


I suggest you change the word nominate to "recommend Lief be nominated".


The bill says you recommend and Prez nominates recommendation.

15572  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: General Senatorial Discussion on: March 15, 2011, 06:38:30 pm
Kalwejt, the below bill has serious flaws. The first of which is that it is title "Repeal of Privacy Protection Act" yet its text is repealing the repeal of the privacy protection act, in which case, such should be reflected in the title as "Repeal of the Repeal..." or something. Tongue

Secondly the bill establishes the precedent of the absence of a law existing as being in contradication, when this is not the case. The mere absence of a law doesn't create a contradiction. It just means there isn't a redundancy. Lastly, I don't think there is a requirement the Atlasian law provide enforcements that double on enforcement of Atlasian administrative police. Baiscally you are claiming that not only most Arizona pass its immigration law but that if it doesn't it is in violation of Federal law if the State doesn't actively and agressively enforce federal law. 

Repeal of Privacy Protection Act

Considering that a Repeal of Privacy Protection Act (F.L. 34-3) is contradicting the higher power of Dave and rules, set by him on the entire forum, said law is hereby repealed.

4. An Ambassador to the GTO shall serve as Atlasian Representative in GTO and Secretary principal assistant; Ambassador shall be nominated by President on the recommendation of Secretary of External Affairs and be a subject of a Senate confirmation vote.

15574  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Moshe Dayan Building of the Department of External Affairs on: March 15, 2011, 06:21:08 pm
With my resignation, the position of GTO Ambassador has become available.  Using my authority, I nominate Lief to that position, and urge the Senate to confirm him as soon as possible.

I was told a few days ago by an administration official that position didn't need confirmation. I orginally thought it did.
15575  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Boehner: Entitlements can wait on: March 14, 2011, 08:43:55 pm
If you can bring yourself to trust someone in this mess (and I realize that is asking a lot, especially if you are independent or a third party member) then the perspective will change. If you trust that the Democrats have the best interests or trust nobody, then yes Boehner is a coward who is dodging the real issues. If you trust Boehner. The Democrats are the ones who are coping out on us. Which is by trying to bring this issue up, they will be reducing the overall amounts of cuts, whereas Boehner is extracting the maximum possible on these discretionary items first before moving on to do the same on entitlements.


Its all a matter of perspective who is screwing you, and who is fighting for your best interest.
