No excuses can be made for this deranged woman who had innocent people burned at the stake.

No, but if she were a Protestant burning Catholics at the stake, I doubt you would made this poll.

Now that has got to rank as one of the silliest statements I have ever read on this forum, and there have been countless stupid statements made on this forum.

Nobody, Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, whatever, has any right to burn anybody else at the stake because of their religious beliefs.

That behavior is inhuman, revolting and abhorrent.

The depraved Mary Tudor well deserves her place as one of the most hated and reviled monarchs in the entire history of England, and England has a long history.

She shall forever be known as one of the most evil women in history.

Where's John Edwards when the Dems need him?

That is there problem. The NC Democratic Party is built on running trial lawyers as po workin folk populists who shares your values and will fight for your economic interests, while secretly he is an out of touch lawyer who lives in two Americas, the America where he is a well respected populist in his own head and the other where he is real self, a dishonest, liberal ambulance chaser. At least half a dozen have been exposed has the corrupt crooks they are over the past decade and several more have had the false veener of centrism torn down. That is why they rely so much on demographic change because so many of the old rural Democratic voters have come to distrust that decade's old song and dance.

Thank you.  You picked up on my sarcasm very well.

I have asked the question before about which President came to the office most prepared and most qualified?

This question asks which Vice President came to the office of Vice President most prepared and most qualified?

Please discuss.

Thank you Cris my friend.  I appreciate your warm wishes.

You will note that I did make a listing of particular words following my initial statement.

But Your Holiness, does one not have the option of being no kind of a Catholic at all in your realm?   
38  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Papal Patch - Behold our awesome recycled islands! on: November 10, 2014, 11:44:01 pm
Will us non-Catholic heretics be burned at the stake in your new paradise, as they were at the time of the whacked out complete looneybin Mary Tudor?

and may the stars of Utopia shine upon you.

I've heard Fox cancelled Utopia.

Sir, that is one reason you would make a great Senator, your outstanding wit.

I for one don't mind being portrayed as a bearded hippie, and would like to extend to you my best wishes in your future endeavors - whatever they may be.

Thank you Governor, and may the stars of Utopia shine upon you.

How do you respond to allegations that you have not one, but three secret wives?

How do I respond?

Well, I'm just glad they haven't found out about the other two in Maine.  

(Audience is bent over in laughter)

Nice analogy, and nice analysis ^^

Thank you my good man. 
43  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Winfield Press Conference on: November 10, 2014, 09:42:32 pm
You have my endorsement in whatever future endeavors you decide to pursue, old friend.

Thank you so much Thomas.  All the best.

Thank you my dear friend. For those of you who may not be aware, Napoleon and myself go way back.  We do not see eye to eye on everything, and have not given each other our first choice votes in every election, but our friendship for one another is solid and genuine.

But, my dear fellow, you never know when our paths may cross again.

Thank you my dear friend.  You know, it is friendships and respect like these that makes politics worthwhile sometime.

Winfield, why do you think Governor Sawx didn't appoint you when the outgoing assemblyman requested for you? Will this be a Hanabusa-Schatz situation?

Well, you know, that's a very good question.

I have felt that throughout my political career in Atlasia that I have proven my worth as a legislator and in fact as a leader. I am ever so much aware as well that voters will not always agree with me, in fact, in some cases,  that is a tremendous understatement.

I believed that I have something to offer to the Northeast Assembly and more importantly to the people of the Northeast, and that I offered some diversity to the Assembly and to the region, and not just more of the same old same old.

As to why Governor Sawx appointed Dallasfan instead of me, Sawx has stated the following

dallasfan is a smidge more similar to rpryor


Referring to Dallasfan, Sawx said

I'm just saying - you're acting like I'm trying to woo a crowd that I've made no secret that I am a part of.


In other words, he appointed one of his own instead of someone else who would show independence.
 
As to any similarities to the Hanabusa-Schatz situation, we can break this down.

The following statements of 7/08/14 from Huff Post is key.

It’s no secret Hanabusa is bitter about Schatz’s appointment to the U.S. Senate, especially when it was Inouye’s dying wish to send her there instead. Inouye’s wish could also be seen as one vote.

Hanabusa said Schatz “convinced” Gov. Neil Abercrombie to appoint him to the U.S. Senate after Daniel K. Inouye died.


Cast of Characters

Abercrombie                          Sawx
Schatz                                   Maxwell and Dallasfan
Hanabussa                             Winfield
Inouye                                   rpryor03

Hanabussa reportedly bitter
Winfield not bitter

Schatz reportedly asked Abercrombie to appoint him to the Senate
Maxwell did in fact ask Sawx to appoint Dallasfan to the Assembly
We do not know if Dallasfan ever asked Sawx directly to appoint him to the Assembly
Only Sawx or Dallasfan could answer that question

Inouye did in fact, as his dying wish, ask Abercrombie to appoint Hanabussa to the Senate
Abercrombie said no
rpryor03 did in fact, as his last request before resigning from the Assembly, ask Sawx to appoint Winfield to the Assembly
Sawx said no

Abercrombie's appointment of Schatz could be seen as one vote
Sawx's appointment of Dallasfan could be seen as one vote

We have to keep in mind, however, that the Governor does have this authority

Anyway, yes, there are some interesting parallels to these two situations, even though separated by sea and by reality.

You realise you can run for the Assembly and would probably win, right?

Why thank you very much for the show of confidence my good man.  I am humbled and gratified by your statement. 
48  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Winfield Press Conference on: November 10, 2014, 07:49:12 pm
RIP, FF

Thank you dear Speaker.

Why is this going to be your last press conference Winfield?


Well, you will notice that I did leave the door open.  Smiley

50  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Winfield Press Conference on: November 10, 2014, 07:26:41 pm


You won't have Winfield to kick around anymore, because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference.

Well, maybe, or possibly, or conceivably, or perhaps.
