It shouldn't have had to come to this.

Sad

78  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of President Pro Tempore TNF: Senate under Proletarian Leadership on: August 13, 2014, 04:05:35 pm
Yankee is the rightful PPT. You lost the race even with your votes counting.  Stand down your directive immediately.

I am no longer available for the position, unfortunately.

Minimal posting the last two days here.

It can always get worse and it did. Tongue
82  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: State of the Union Amendment (Debating) on: August 13, 2014, 03:59:40 pm
You know, the whole clause about the state of the union, like so much else in the constitution is utterly unnecessary, and should really be scrapped.

Unfortunately, I think like with the OSPR, this is the type of thing that should not be done piecemeal.

Some times piecemeal is the only way that can actually pass though. Whilst slow, at least we passed most every OSPR amendment put before the Senate and brought numerous improvements with each one. Sometimes the appetite for debate has to be considered as well and the best way of doing something is not practical for that reason.

Some flexibility is necessary in emergencies.
84  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The Candidacy Withdrawal Initiative (Final vote) on: August 13, 2014, 03:55:33 pm
FTR I mean


This one was unanimous so no vote change time was required.
85  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The Candidacy Withdrawal Initiative (Final vote) on: August 13, 2014, 03:54:56 pm
Aye
86  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Working Class Holidays Act of 2014 (Amendment at vote) on: August 13, 2014, 03:53:48 pm
Aye
87  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Public Fuel and Power Act of 2014 (Final vote) on: August 13, 2014, 03:50:46 pm
Comrade TNF, the rules require a 24 hour vote change period for all votes that are not unanimous unless time has expired beforehand and it was started on the eleventh.

Reluctant Nay/b]

As much as I want some kind of altnerative distribution network this is far too complex and whilst bore improved it I think it still contains provisions that will be hard to manage or otherwise problematic and would detract from the benefits of the providing an alternative setup.

It contains what I insisted on regarding the Senate so AYE

AYE
90  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Leave of Absence on: August 09, 2014, 11:34:11 am
I have to take a leave of absence from August 12th through the 15th to take care of critical personal problems.
91  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Federalist Party: June 2014 Convention (LEADERSHIP DECLARATIONS!) on: August 09, 2014, 11:22:04 am
Though my activity for the next two to three weeks will be lighter than normal, I would like to if possible remain as chairman. That said I will need to rely more on others to assist me, particularly with regards to the August Elections.

Therefore I am opening a 48 hour declaration period for Chairman and Vice Chairman. I also declare for the position of Chairman.
92  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: 62nd Election of the PPT on: August 09, 2014, 11:17:42 am
I must withdraw from this PPT election. I realize this might end the court case but I would prefer a resolution to the case if possible, unfortunately events in RL have forced my hand.

94  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Article of Impeachment Against Associate Justice Torie on: August 09, 2014, 11:12:40 am
I'd say this in totality is pretty bad - this does not speak well for us. Is the standard of activity so low for all of us? Hmm.

Few would vote to boot Torie, it was hard for me to cast the vote like I did as it was. Him reappearing just in time was the ticket out and he is lucky he is so well respected.

Keep in mind the vote alone serves an incentive but going forward the default option has to be to vote Aye unless proven innocent for it to work effectively.
95  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Article of Impeachment Against Associate Justice Torie on: August 09, 2014, 11:11:02 am
Unless you telepathically envisioned my vote as it would have been.

Let's go with this explanation. Grin

Two years of service together gets you the ability to read my mind, apparently. Tongue
96  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: State of the Union Amendment (Debating) on: August 09, 2014, 11:09:35 am
NAY
97  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Senate Protest and Analysis Thread on: August 09, 2014, 11:05:20 am
Like I said in the thread, the Constitution makes the VP President of the Senate not the rules.

I have issues with changing to the term Speaker as the PPT should be a merit based not a political based election.

Speaker is not an inherently political term. For instance, the speaker in britain is non partisan.

As long as everyone is clear then that such is the British version of such and that is the nature of the office.
98  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Smack Ain't Whack Act of 2014 on: August 09, 2014, 11:04:12 am
I share Lumine's concerns, I understand the concerns about black markets but I fear just as much the other aspects and the negative consequences they entail render nill the gains from black market reductions.

What time frame are we looking at with regards to the pilot?
100  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Windjammer-Yankee Override, Redraft, Tabling, Expulsion and Introduction PPT... on: August 09, 2014, 11:00:29 am
Ok, here's my only concern with this legislation. It's not against Windjammer. We all know he's nothing if not dedicated to his job. There probably will be less interested VP's though in the future.  Having a Senator that is PPT could maintain improved functionality if that becomes the case.

It may simply be the case that Windjammer went too far in the direction and as revising the power distribution agreement with the PPT may be in order.

There is a vital role for an active Senator as PPT and I don't see it as problematic that we have ran into this and need to revise. An active VP is still new and feeling out the possibilities takes time.
