1  General Discussion / History / Re: If McCain had picked Governor Mark Sanford for VP in 2008..........? on: July 27, 2014, 09:56:41 pm
I agree McCain was going to lose, however, my actual question supposes McCain and Governor Mark Sanford win.  

Sanford, the new Vice President, continues down the path he did in real life, having affairs with prostitutes.

He has to resign as Vice President.

My question being who does President McCain then nominate to replace Sanford as Vice President?  

Joe Lieberman, possibly.

You know, that is an extremely interesting answer. 

McCain would not have to be concerned, at least until the election, by reaction from the Republican right.  By that time they may be accepting of Lieberman as VP.

McCain and Lieberman would work very well together.

One concern I would have though is Lieberman receiving speedy confirmation from Congress from Democrats due to the fact he backed McCain in 2008 over Obama.

My guess woud be that President Obama would select either Sen. Chuck Schumer or Sen. Dianne Feinstein.  Both could get Congressional approval with relative ease.  Both are experienced  Both are from safely Democratic states.  Neither one has Presidential ambitions.  

Interesting answers.  

Schumer would be up for reelection in 2016 when his term as VP would expire.  If he became VP he would have to give up his Senate seat, another would be appointed to fill the seat, so I doubt he would accept the Vice Presidency if it meant he would not be going back to the Senate.  Of course, he could always run for the Democratic Senate nomination for 2016 against the appointed Senator.  It is also possible, of course, that the appointed Senator would want to serve only for the balance of the Senate term to which he was appointed, which would allow Schumer to run for the Senate in 2016 unopposed for the Democratic nomination.

Feinstein is 81 years old, so I doubt Obama would pick her.

Please understand I make these points not to criticize these choices, but simply for discussion purposes.  

But your picks are most interesting.

Who does President Obama nominate for Congressional approval as the new Vice President to fill out the rest of the term?

Explain why if you wish.

Then they shouldn't have a incestuous marriage. Problem solved.

Just because you support perverts marrying their mother and having sex with their immediate family members doesn't mean everyone does.
Again, they shouldn't have incestuous marriages then. Other people's marriages won't affect them in any way.

The Northeast Assembly is hereby now known as The Northeast Perv Assembly.

I like it!

The mere fact that you and the rest of the Assembly members support such perverseness speaks volumes about you and the rest of the Assembly members, and not in a good way.

Amended Pornography Liberalization Act

Section 1.
A. The Pornography Liberalization Act is repealed.

Section 2.
A . The Pornography and Age of Consent Act of 2010 is hereby amended to read:

        A1. An act to liberalise laws restricting sexual activity and to amend the Northeast Pornography and Age of Consent Act of 2005:

1. In accordance with the federal Bow Chicka Bow Wow Act of 2009, All individuals 14 years of age or older shall have the right to buy, possess, and view pornography depicting only persons of 18 years of age or older.

x Talleyrand

I encourage citizens to participate in the debate over the July-October budget resolution which has just been introduced, and contribute ideas as to how we can best utilize a portion of the $5 billion in spending to combat homelessness apportioned by the federal government.

Again, another perverse piece of legislation by the same perverts who brought you the Legalize Incest Act.

Here they have legalized 14 year olds to be free to buy and view pornography.  Which only goes to show that the Northeast is controlled by immature perverted 14 year olds, and or those who have the mentality of immature perverted 14 year olds.

The Northeast is going to Hell in a hand basket.

Same Love Act
Section 1:

1. All criminal prohibitions on incestuous relations are hereby repealed in the Northeast.

Section 2:

The Northeast Group Unions Act of 2014 is amended to read as such:

Quote
1. This act shall be cited as the Northeast Group Unions Act of 2014.

2. The term "union" as used in this act shall be defined as a civil union, and not an actual marriage as defined in the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, and therefore does not come under jurisdiction of the Atlasian Senate.

3. The definition of union shall be the union of multiple persons, and excluding:
i) The union of a person with a non-person, or an object ii) The union of a person with a dead person or the union of two dead persons iii) The union of a person to his or her mother, father, son, daughter, sister, brother, first cousin, grandparent and their ancestors, grandchildren and their descendants, aunts and uncles and their ancestors, and nephews and nieces and their descendants. Adopted family in these relations shall also be excluded.

4. The union of multiple persons must be certified by an appointed municipal clerk, or in the case of forum members, must be certified by the Governor. A union must be witnessed by at least two other persons to be legal.

5. A union shall always be a union of complete equity. No provisions are to be assumed to favor any of the persons unless consented to by all parties.

6. A union is a contract that must be approved by all parties, the witnesses and the officer presiding over the election.  If more than two persons wish to form a legal union, all parties involved must sign a contract dictating the division of property in the case of divorce.

7. A union between two persons may be nullified at any time with the consent of both parties. At this time the property of the members of the union shall be divided to both of the parties, unless an agreement is made before the union.   In the case of a union between more than two persons, all parties shall have the right to divorce themselves from the union at any time without the consent of other parties.  Children under the age of 18 who are under the guardianship of the union shall have their custody given to the most competent of the union, with rights of the other parties to be able to have visiting access.

8. Rights of the union, including, but not limited to: i) It is assumed that the property of the members of the union shall be the ownership of all parties. This may be nullified with a pre-nuptual agreement. ii) The union parties will have the right to open a join bank account. iii) The union parties will have a right to certain tax benefits. iv) The union parties will have a right to certain social security benefits. v) The union parties will have visiting room privileges at hospitals.

9. This bill shall be post dated to October 1, 2005 and all unions to occur between that date and the passing of this legislation shall fall under this act.

x Talleyrand

I am pleased to sign this bill. The draconian ban on incestuous marriages (which under the previous clause, also somehow extended to distant relatives) was a disgrace in our region, which is well known for its civil liberties.


If anyone needs any further proof how much this fantasy simulation has gotten carried away with whacko ideas and legislation, one need look no further than this abomination.

Why on earth pollute the good legislation and ideas presented on this board with this insanity?

If this travesty you call the Same Love Act doesn't show how much this board is controlled by pimply faced, immature nerds who have no idea whatever what a relationship is all about, or what love is all about, then nothing will.

Since nobody else around here has the guts to object to this totally ridiculous flight of fancy, then I will.

Just because all of you want to make it legal so you can have sex with your mother, your father, your sister, your brother,  your daughter, your son, doesn't mean everyone supports your sexual perversions and your incestuous lustfulness.

I find this scenario a little odd, but I could see him choosing someone like Huckabee.

True, however, as you are aware, Vice President Agnew resigned, due to scandal, as Nixon's Vice President and Nixon replaced him with Gerald Ford.

Irrelevant.

Not irrelevant, but a parallel.  It shows there are occasions when a sitting Vice President must be replaced for one reason or another. 

My question is simply who does McCain nominate for Congressional approval to become the new Vice President?

This is an impressive resource, man.

Thank you for your comment.  Much appreciated.

For each of the major nominees, I would like to have  included as well post secondary education and military service, if any.  I did include these details with some of the nominees but not all of them.

I have been going slowly through the thread, and adding this information at least for the major nominees as much as I could.  I have found, however, that for some of the entries, it takes me over the maximum number of characters allowed for an entry, so this has presented a problem.

But again, thank you so much for your kind words.

 
19  General Discussion / History / If McCain had picked Governor Mark Sanford for VP in 2008..........? on: July 19, 2014, 03:01:55 pm
I believe the pre fall from grace Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina would have been a good pick for McCain's VP.

At that time, he was considered to be a good Governor, and could have added positively to the ticket.

However, had he been picked, and had they won, and had Sanford continued down the same path as he did, this would have resulted in the dismissal or resignation of a sitting Vice President, and would have brought scandal upon the McCain Presidency.

Had this scenario became a reality, who should McCain have picked to replace Sanford as Vice President in 2009?

22  General Discussion / History / Who should McCain have picked for VP in 2008? on: July 19, 2014, 12:32:39 pm
I believe most are agreed that Sarah Palin was not the best pick by John McCain for VP in 2008, coming across as an airhead in many respects, and perceived by most as not Vice Presidential material, let alone Presidential material.

The number one rule for picking a Vice Presidential candidate is to pick someone who is capable of assuming the Presidency in the event something should happen to the President.  In my view, McCain failed this criteria miserably.

In retrospect, who should John McCain have picked for Vice President other than Sarah Palin?

I remember Romney saying Russia was a threat and everyone laughed at him. If he does run again, his foreign policy could emphasise stronger opposition to Russia.

Mitt Romney, a true visionary.

25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Willard "Mitt" Romney 2016 megathread on: July 17, 2014, 09:36:00 pm
Now that there is a Mitt Romney 2016 megathread, and for the record, I do not believe for a moment that Mitt will run for President in 2016, or ever again, but that aide, for the purposes of sheer speculation, let us say that Mitt did run in 2016, knowing what we know now, who would be the best running mate for Mitt?

Give your reasons for your choice or choices if you like.

I thought you would like this thread my friend. If Mitt doesn't run, who might he endorse?

Indeed, this entire forum owes  you a debt of gratitude for this magnificent thread.

You had a wonderful idea and demonstrated great foresight in creating this thread to discuss one of America's great leaders.

I will have to agree that if Mitt does not run he will endorse and support Jeb.

And I for one do not believe that Mitt will run.
