Well, his first name is the name of a president, maybe that will help- ahaha no. He's got no chance. Still funny.

Not to mention he is the son of one of the most respected Senators of all time, the long serving John Chafee.

I can just see another political dynasty coming on.

As a Republican, I would very much like to see Chafee as the Dem nominee.

In all honesty, if the speech, or article, is too long, I will sometimes only briefly skim over it to get some idea of what the candidate is saying. 

Sometimes I won't read any of it.

How many of you really read the long winded speeches made by candidates here in Atlasia during their campaigns for office?

Fulfill your destiny, good Doctor, fulfill your destiny.

The Governor's veto of the Distracted Drivers Act was overturned by the Assembly, therefore, the Distracted Drivers Act became law without the Governor's signature.
85  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE4: February-June Northeast Budget FY2015 on: April 09, 2015, 10:35:11 am
I agree with Representative Pikachu.  We have no need to burden the taxpayers of the Northeast with any further taxes.
86  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Winfield Speech on: April 08, 2015, 11:18:19 pm

Well, I don't plan on hiring a marching band to escort me out of the Northeast Assembly on the last day of this session, if that's what you mean.  Smiley
87  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Winfield Speech on: April 08, 2015, 10:39:17 pm
This is a sad day. You, and your common sense principles, will be sorely missed in our regional government, old friend.

Thank you so much Lief.

That means a great deal to me hearing that from one of my best friends in Atlasia, and from one of the finest Senators this nation has ever produced.
88  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE3: Native Atlasians Matter Act on: April 08, 2015, 05:38:31 pm
Nay
89  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE1: Fixed School Leaving Age Act on: April 08, 2015, 05:36:23 pm
Nay
90  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: Repeal of the Restoration of the Arts Act on: April 08, 2015, 09:37:34 am
If the Restoration of the Arts Act is to be repealed, we will need at least 4 Assembly votes to accomplish this, as I believe the Governor will veto the repeal.

Therefore, we will require at least 4 of us to stand together, vote for repeal, and then vote to override the veto, if in fact it is vetoed. 
91  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: Repeal of the Restoration of the Arts Act on: April 08, 2015, 09:30:32 am
I would support this, if we could have mandatory arts lessons (art, music or drama) at least one a week as part of the curriculum in schools.

Representative Clyde, in all honesty, and with all due respect, we would be far better off in repealing the Restoration of the Arts Act first, and after the repeal for you to introduce a completely new bill addressing arts lessons.

I believe this would work much better.
92  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Winfield Speech on: April 07, 2015, 08:41:00 pm
Thank you for your service.

Thank you Senator.

What I remember most about you is from when you were CJO for the Northeast, and I was always impressed with your fairness and impartiality in carrying out your responsibilities while in the office.
93  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Winfield Speech on: April 07, 2015, 08:36:01 pm
I thank you for your commitment to the North East and to Atlasia, and I have enjoyed working with you over the previous term in the North East Assembly.

Best of luck in the future. Smiley

Thank you Clyde.  Much appreciated.

Because we as legislators are here for the greater good of the people, not for turning the people into drunks and alcoholics.
95  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: Repeal of the Restoration of the Arts Act on: April 07, 2015, 04:27:17 pm
I would admonish the Governor to watch his language while speaking in this Assembly.

This is a legislative body, not a bar.
96  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: Repeal of the Restoration of the Arts Act on: April 07, 2015, 03:56:14 pm
Bravo.

I could not agree more.

I have been saying this for months.

The first bill was monstrous.  This bill is, as you say, and as I have said in the past, silly.

What an absolute waste of time. 

I will also add to what you have said, this bill violates parental rights in determining what they want their children listening to day after day after day. 

This bill is stupid, it is ridiculous, it is abhorrent.

Why should our children be subjected to these songs, ANY songs, day after day, day after day, day after day?

Let us unite as an Assembly of  what we should be, RESPONSIBLE lawmakers, not lawmakers that bring forth this garbage, and let us, together, cast this stupid law into where it belongs, into the dust  bin of bills that should be forgotten.

May you enjoy retirement.

Thank you. 

But, retirement?

Ah, so you're coming for the Governor's Mansion.

Either way, best of luck.

Been there, done that

Thank you for your dedicated service to our region, Representative Winfield Smiley

Thank you my friend.

Section 1
1)The Northeast government accepts shared responsibility for the historic crimes, injustices and discrimination against the Native Atlasian community.


While I fully support section 1.2, and section 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, I do have very serious concerns regarding section 1.1.

Accepting shared responsibility for historic crimes, injustices and discrimination against Native Atlasians opens the government and Atlasians open up to enormous law suits, because it would be an outright admission of the responsibility and guilt of the Northeast government.

For that reason, I cannot support this bill as it stands.  It opens up the taxpayers of the Northeast to tremendous liability, cost, and lawsuits.

This bill could still be passed by eliminating section 1.1 and would have my support.
