11401  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A-Bob Research Center (Mideast Government Approval Ratings) on: November 12, 2010, 05:15:41 pm
Approve of almost all. Even True Con and A-Bob have my liberal support for the job they're doing.

Unfortunately that horrible abortion ban for all but the wealthy $5k "tax" forces me to disapprove of our governor currently. I suspect once it gets to the Assembly floor some my new approval votes will shift as well. Sad

If you will allow me to respond to this...

I know 5k is high, and I posted it high for a reason. A good thing is that it will hopefully get both sides in the process and we can reach a reasonable agreement. I posted later in the thread that I am very willing to come down on that, and I'm positive that 5k will not be the amount when this bill is (hopefully) signed. Ben and I have been working together on a compromise. Once one has been reached, that will be voted on, and if passed, I will sign it.

Jim Talent is one of the first politicians I remember, as I remember his run back in 2002. I've always really admired the man because of that, though I can honestly say I don't know a lot about him. I hope he decides to run.

Despite the fact there was no JCP-er in a cabinet, while I remembering DAers, RRPers in Bgwah, Lief cabinets for example.

Also, I'm sick and tired of your hipocrity. If you really don't "screaming", please never AIM me, and few other folks, with a full of rage chats again. Consider yourself blocked on AIM, Mr. "I'm hollier than you".
The issue here is bipartisanship. Afleitch composed a very bipartisan administration. It had one current JCP member in it, and several others who are closely aligned with the JCP. I'd also like to point out that while you claim this was a RPP/DA only cabinet, there were a couple members of it who weren't in either, and the only RPP member in this cabinet was the VP, Smid, who was actually elected.

Kalwejt, what upsets me is the fact you throw out accusations such as this one, then fail to adequately back them up. You can't expect to attack the right like this and get nothing in response. The motives behind BK becoming PPT are sad, with you and several others claiming that the JCP deserved it since they had a majority. This should be about electing the strongest candidate, regardless of political views or party affiliation.

I'm not being a hypocrite. I have a proven record of seeking bipartisnhip, from my time in the Senate to as Governor. I'm even comprosing with the left as we speak on a bill recently introduced in the Assembly.

Fritz was later addition. And we're talking about a partisian, since you all are whinning about bad evil JCP and innocent right in a regard of bipartisianship.

Well, Tmthforu, speaking about you, you were offered RG position you turned down after accepting. Fine. So we tapped Hans, who was unamiously confirmed by the Senate due to his qualification. Are you all going to scream about that too?
You failed to back up your statement that Afleitch's cabinet is partisan. The cabinet is closer to liberal partisan than it is conservative partisan, ironically.

I wish I could have taken the RG position, but an incident in my life caused concern on my future, and I wasn't going to take any chances. I also don't have excel, but that's not why I quit. I find the position to be pretty non-partisan, so I only care that Hans does a good job. And for the record, I haven't "screamed" once. Anyone who actually screams over Atlasia really needs to get a life.
11405  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Proposal. on: November 11, 2010, 10:54:15 pm
Andrew, where were your values and morals when Afletisch made up uberpartisian RRP/DA only cabinet?

RG - Fritz
SoIA- Al
AG - Barnes
SoEA - Hashemite
SoFA - Franzl
GM - Purple State

I'm dying to hear your explanation on how this is an uberpartisan ticket. Not one person here is center-right. You have at least 4 liberals, a center-lefty, and a centrist. Al is a category by himself.

I hope she runs for Senate in 2014, just to keep her away from running for President.

PPT races are always either partisan or subject to some sort of backroom wheeling and dealing, whether we like it or not, sadly. I remember a certain plucky upstart named "Marokai Blue" running against MasterJedi for the position of PPT and losing after a bunch of promises were made behind the scenes back and forth. (Shortly before MasterJedi decided to disappear from the Senate and I got in my "I told you so"s.) I'm sure if BK is an inactive PPT he will be similarly ousted.
Eh, while it has gotten ugly in the past, I think many can agree that this should be a non-partisan position. It's up to us, however, to make it that way. Personally, I always voted for the best candidate, even voting for you once. Wink I even voted for Bacon King over Yankee one time, casting the tie-breaking vote. (I could be wrong on the last part)

Governor Update 28

In an act of bi-partisanship, I hereby appoint Benconstine to the Mideast Assembly. I think it's only fair that a center-left member is replaced by another center-left member, and Ben was the only member who's contacted me. Plus, he'll likely be in the Assembly next session anyways. Wink

Hopefully the federal government can learn something from this. Tongue

Bacon King, by abstaining, actually gives right a majority to reelect Yankee as PPT. You can only blame a certain inactive Senator, who almost haven't voted in this session, and missed literally a tons of the votes, for not showing up.
You could also give blame to the person who broke the tie.
11411  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of Senator Angry AndrewCT on: November 11, 2010, 09:42:53 pm
Andrew, I admire your courage and dedication to this game. Atlasia has lost one of it's great bi-partisan leaders. It's certainly disappointing with the lack of bi-partisanship going on in our federal government. They just managed to make a non-partisan position partisan.

Governor Update 27

I'd like to congratulate Hashemite and all other members for their appointments to the cabinet, and confirmations. Smiley

There is now a vacancy in the Mideast Assembly. Please contact me if you are interested.

As good of shape as he is currently in, I don't think this will be a cakewalk. I hope Republicans find a good candidate here.

Note: On the abortion bill, I'd be open to working with pro-choice members on possible amendments, such as lower the tax amount. I'm actually toying with an amount, and actually just edited it again. Wink

BTW: This is my 7500th post!
11415  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: KS21 for IDS Lieutenant Governor on: November 10, 2010, 09:29:04 pm
I'd also like to send my best wishes to you. It looks like you'll win, which is a good thing. I think you have a bright future in Atlasia. Smiley
11416  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of Dallasfan65 on: November 10, 2010, 06:24:05 pm
It's too bad you lost to a liberal who barely ran a campaign. You were a very fine Senator, and one of the bright spots in the right wing of Atlasia. I look forward to seeing great things from you in the future! Smiley

"Barely"? I think you're giving me a little too much credit there.

I like how Ththforu is using word "liberal" as an insult.
Who's Ththforu?
11417  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: 2010 Gubernatorial Races by County on: November 10, 2010, 05:51:19 pm
Haskell County, Kansas?
I can't comment on Gray, but I do know the VP originally came from western Kansas, and I think Gray actually may have come from out west too.

The county is extremely rural, and you could probably reach out to half the voters at mass. The Libertarians actually beat the Democratic candidate in this county. It's not a Libertarian bastion by any means though, as the Libertarian only got 3 votes there in 2006.

11419  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Mideast Assembly Thread on: November 10, 2010, 05:32:56 pm
It's disappointed that two of our Assemblyman have yet to vote, even though messages have been sent to vote to them. Hopefully they can vote soon so we can get this bill passed quickly.

I'd like to introduce the following legislation. I have no clue on a name for it, so I'll just use something random for now.

The Taxing Abortion Act
Section 1. Tax on Certain Medical Procedures
a) Any medical professional performing a legal abortion in the Mideast region shall pay a tax of $5,000 per procedure to the state's general fund.
b) Abortions performed in cases of pregnancy caused by incest, rape, or necessitated to preserve the life of the mother are exempt from Section 1(a).

Section 2. Timing
This bill shall take effect upon the Governor's signature

John Thune would be the best candidate for the GOP and The obumblers worst nightmare

Chris Christie 19%
Mitt Romney 17%
Sarah Palin 14%
Jeb Bush 6%
Tim Pawlenty 4%
Mitch Daniels 3%
Haley Barbour 3%
Haha, there probably isn't even 19% of Republicans who know who Chris Christie is.

Good for Lieberman! Smiley
11422  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Northeast Assembly Thread on: November 09, 2010, 11:39:52 pm
For the record, I wrote this based off Mideast law. Just changed the region name. Wink

If you move to 6, you may want to keep Lt. Governor and consider abolishing CJO. If you stay at 5, vice-versa. Regardless, I think this is a significant step towards making Northeast elections more competitve.

Congratulations Phil, it's great to see your state returning to sanity! Smiley Indiana also returned there, and with Republicans in complete control, it's time for Mitch Daniels to get to work. Should be a great session in both PA and IN!

Teddy and I will get to work very quickly and divide up the simulations that we know of. I've already spoken to at least one member who has signed up for Atlas, but hasn't posted much.
