76  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: X on: January 13, 2015, 03:44:12 pm
Well, Mr. Griff, that coming from one who makes up quotes that I never said is truly laughable.

I also note that in the last election for Governor in the Northeast that you were one of the participants in the hateful, lying smear campaign of attack ads against me.

When I challenged you to put or shut up, and to prove any of the despicable accusations you and the others had made against me, you shut up.  You did not accept my challenge.  You backed away like a scared little rabbit.

I challenged you to prove any of these accusations you had participated in against me, and that if you proved any of them that I would leave Atlasia permanently, and that if you failed to prove any of these accusations against me, that you would leave Atlasia permanently.

Needless to say, you and all the others backed away from my challenge as fast as you could run.

Perhaps the next time you receive a challenge from someone you will have the guts to accept it.

What I have done in the Northeast Assembly is to expose the absolute travesty of some of the legislation which I had brought up for repeal, the scientifically proven facts of the danger of some of this legislation, the fact that the people, in particular young people, were exposed to danger and had no protection, etc., etc., etc.

Even  when the Assembly was successful in overturning some of this legislation or was successful in passing a compromise piece of legislation, improving it, they were, without exception, vetoed irresponsibly by the Governor, totally obstructing any improvements to this legislation that the Assembly had passed by a majority vote.

That is why I made the comparison of Sawx being a puppet for Dallasfan, because Sawx was intransigent in even considering any changes whatsoever to legislation that was originally presented by Dallasfan.

Fine, Mr. Libertas, if that's the way you wanna be, but I must say, I  was never banned for four years, or banned at all in fact.

My goodness, you must have had a rap sheet as long as your arm to warrant four years.

78  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: X on: January 13, 2015, 01:26:29 pm
I was advised it was inappropriate.

At least I had the decency to remove it.

Sorry Sawx that my attempt at humor did not go over well, and I apologize for any offence.

Well the people of the Northeast have the right to know about your inappropriate attacks on Governor Sawx and DallasFan (which backfired on you leading to your edit/apology) for the next time they enter the voting booth and see your name on the ballot.

Well, Mr. Libertas, if  you were in fact banned in the past, and I am not accusing you of anything, did you in fact do something inappropriate leading to your ban?

The point is, Mr. Libertas, many of us on this forum have acted inappropriately from time to time.

The important thing is to take the appropriate steps to make a correction.
79  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE3: Repeal of the Drug Liberalization Act (Debating) on: January 13, 2015, 01:01:10 pm
Section 1.1 negates Section 1.2

My interpretation says that "criminal penalties" do not mean regulations.

Unlimited drug proponents are in denial of the real effects and the real toll it takes on especially our young people.

Oh, we surely realize it. We just don't want to throw emerging capitalists trying to make a living in jail.

Emerging capitalists is one thing, however, when these emerging capitalists are committing a generation of our young people to a life of addiction and dependency, that is quite  something else indeed.

Believe me, I have been the target on this forum of much worse.
81  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: X on: January 13, 2015, 12:40:08 pm
The truth is, Sawx has been totally obnoxious and rude toward me.

You seem to think it is fine for him to post rude and obnoxious comments and images directed to me but you get defensive when I post a bit of humor about  him.

You have a double standard.

83  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: Repeal of the Shocker Act (Veto Override) on: January 13, 2015, 11:32:38 am
Aye to override the veto
84  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE1: Repeal of the Criminal Justice Modernization Act (Voting) on: January 13, 2015, 11:22:26 am
Aye

We can repeal then work out a replacement bill.

What concerns me about this bill is Section 1, part 2, which sets no  minimum age for the consumption of alcohol.  The way this bill is worded is even with a parent or guardian present, they can still give alcohol legally to a young child.

As far as I am concerned, this bill should be repealed and then replaced by a bill that is perfectly clear.

2. There shall be no minimum age of consumption for alcohol so long as a designated parent or guardian of the consumer is present. In instances where the respective parent(s) or guardians of the consumer are not present, the age of consumption is established at 16.

Heroin has plenty of negative consequences.....

Street drugs..... you have no idea what might be mixed in with them.....

Heroin is powerfully addictive.....

The heroin high..... users are always ready to recreate the sensation.....

National Institute on Drug Abuse..... heroin is the most abused drug in its class.....

Users who inject the drug are at an increased risk of several communicable diseases including HIV and hepatitis.....

Taking too much of the drug at once can result in depressed breathing, a slow heart rate and unconsciousness.....

A heroin overdose is a potentially fatal.....

http://drugabuse.com/library/the-effects-of-heroin-use/

Ditto for the other drugs in this bill.

You see, the problem with all of these liberalization of drug laws in the Northeast is that they utterly fail to take into account the human toll this legislation is taking and will continue to take on the lives and well being of men, woman, and children throughout the Northeast.

The same old, lame, tired argument is always made by those who want unlimited access to drugs, and that silly, senseless argument is "If you don't want to take drugs don't take them.  

But what proponents of unlimited access to drugs fail to come clean about is that free and unfettered access to these life threatening drugs makes it too easy for especially young people to become addicted to these drugs, and for young people to become victimized, and plunged into a lifetime of addiction and very possibly to an early death.    
87  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: Repeal of the Deez Girls Ain't Loyal Act (Debating) on: January 13, 2015, 10:35:06 am
The potential implications of this act have far reaching and disastrous consequences.

The way this act is worded, a wife and children could be left high and dry by an adulterous husband and father, and this no good dead beat husband and father could simply say "I could care less, because I have the law on my side".  

In the meantime, the innocent wife and children are at home, abandoned by the no good husband and father, the wife and children can't pay the rent, can't pay the utility bills, have no food, get evicted from their home, have no place to live, are starving to death, and the reprobate husband has no responsibility for their care because of this obscene law.

And I must say that the repugnant remarks from Mr. Sawx are offensive and degrading to women, wives, and mothers everywhere.  Not to mention the words from Mr. Sawx are unparliamentary.

Mr. Speaker, I would ask that you have these offensive remarks about women and this unparliamentary language stricken from this record, and  that Mr. Sawx be warned about his language on the floor of this Assembly.

No way Johnson wins the election in 1968.

The nation was falling apart over Vietnam, riots in the streets.

Johnson was the focal point of discontent.

Nixon has an easy win.

I know Ike speculated on replacing Nixon with Bob Anderson--his Navy Secretary I believe--or Democrat Frank Lausche.

Yes, Anderson would have been a solid, non controversial, capable pick, and Eisenhower would still have won a landslide victory.  

I believe Ike would have liked to have had Anderson join the ticket, and appoint Nixon Secretary of Defense, but Nixon fought hard to keep his position as Vice President, believing being dropped from the ticket would have been fatal to his political career.  I believe Ike did not want to to rock the boat too much just before an election,  so he kept Nixon on.

VP, but he has no chance of that.

Cabinet?  That is a possibility, but only a possibility.

It would have been cool if it was Senator Margaret Chase Smith.

A very interesting pick.  Republican Party would be far ahead of its time by naming a woman to a national ticket of a major party.

Other possibilities

Senator Prescott Bush from Connecticut.  This would have been another feather in the cap for the Bush dynasty.

Senator William Knowland from California.  The pick of Knowland would have been a slap in the face for Nixon as Knowland and Nixon were rivals for influence in the California Republican Party.  Knowland was in fact considered for VP by Eisenhower in 1952, but ultimately decided on Nixon.

Governor George Craig of Indiana.  Sided with the Eisenhower wing of the party in 1952.

Herbert Brownell, U.S. Attorney General in Eisenhower cabinet.  Brownell was very trusted by Eisenhower and was extremely helpful to Eisenhower especially in domestic policy.  He as well helped Eisenhower speed up desegregation in the South.  As a result, Brownell did  not go over well with large segments of the population in the South, so this would likely have hurt Eisenhower in the south  in the election.  However, the selection of Brownell would have said to the South and to the nation that we are doing what is right, not what is politically expedient.  This may have increased his support even more in the states outside the South. The Democrats won most of the deep South in 1956 anyway, so it would not have had any effect on another Eisenhower landslide victory anyway.

There was talk in 1956 of President Eisenhower dropping  Vice President Nixon as the Vice Presidential candidate.

If he did drop him, who should Eisenhower have picked to replace him?

What effect do you believe this development would have had on the 1956 election?

Please discuss.
