Endorsed!
11402  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Reduction of Registration Requirements Amendment (Debating) on: May 11, 2011, 06:48:11 am
My only concern with eliminating the post requirement completely is, we'll have more and more members join and subsequently leave, as well as the possibility someone could simply get all his friends to join, wait two weeks, and have them vote in elections with 1-2 posts to their name. I think 50 posts over 2 weeks, something like 3.5 posts per day, is very fair for someone to meet. Making 3 thoughtful posts a day isn't asking too much from new members. While I understand what the President wants to do with this bill, we must understand that people will inevitably exploit this and our game will suffer from mass delusion. I think the step from 75 -> 50 is a good one, but not from 75 -> 0.
In this instance, I'd also go with 50. 25 would be more acceptable to me, but I have to think of a somewhat compromisable number that could also perhaps get passed at the regional vote.

How about naming them after the cities in which they service/reside? Seems pretty straight forward to me. Nyman International Airport etc..
That'd be acceptable too. Whatever y'all feel is appropriate.

Hope? Liberty? Seems so cheesy, tmth.. Tongue

The first sounds like an evangelical airport.
I'm trying to find some sort of compromise that won't be viewed as partisan in any way.

Atlasian Airports Act

1) Mondale National Airport shall henceforth be known as Hope National Airport.

2) Arbenz International Airport shall henceforth be known as Liberty International Airport.

Would people be more acceptable to that?

I have Boys State in June. I also will be going down to Georgia again in July. Other than that, it'll probably just consist of working and playing video games. Also will start preparing to apply for colleges.

Yankee, just vote so we can get this show on the road.

Thank You, Danke, Gracious! Smiley

I agree that there should be a certain amount of time before a new poster can be able to join. I proposed originally a low number expecting it to go up, but hopefully bring about debate as well, which it has. My main argument from lowering the days from 15 to 14 is I think two weeks is much easier to count and figure.

I don't think post counts should be considered too much in the figuring of registration requirements, because it doesn't judge the merits of a poster. I'd rather have a poster who made careful, in-depth posts who doesn't post as much per day than one who can easily spam their way up. Honestly, I wouldn't mind completely removing requirements on number of posts, but I'm just trying to meet some sort of common ground here.

Dems got to hand select their dream candidate in 2010.  A young, handsome, "moderate" representative, and he was destroyed by an old has-been former Senator.
He would have beat any other Republican besides Stutzman.
Stutzman would have crushed Ellsworth. He was the perfect candidate for Indiana.
11411  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Atlasian Airports Act (Debating) on: May 10, 2011, 08:13:03 am
I actually like the Vice President's idea of naming them not after people. "Hope" and "Liberty", or something along those lines, shouldn't be too controversial and I imagine anyone who isn't hyper-partisan could back it.

Endorsed. You'd make an excellent and intelligent Senator. Smiley
11413  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Setti Warren to challenge Scott Brown on: May 09, 2011, 07:53:54 pm
Newton Mayor Setti Warren has become the second prominent Democrat to join the race to challenge Sen. Scott Brown (R).
I'd hardly call a newly elected mayor who less than 5% of the state has heard about a prominent candidate.

(Thank you to everyone who has expressed support thus far!)

Activity, Activity, Activity!

If Atlasians were polled right now on whether or not they thought the Senate was active, I'd guess that over 75% would say that no, it isn't. It's taking months to pass legislation, and we see some bills sit around with little being done to them for weeks at a time. That's wrong. We could get so much through and make many more improvements if we went at a faster pace.

One thing I can promise the people of the Mideast is that not only will I be active, but I'll be fast. Smiley Smiley In every position I've ever held, I've maintained a high level of activity throughout. A new priority I'll make if I'm elected to the Senate is working to speed up the process, whether as PPT or just an ordinary Senator.

I know my positions are not in line with every Mideast voter, and I'm sure many of you disagree with me on more than one issue. But I can guarantee you, that if I'm elected, you'll be adequately represented in the Senate. You'll have a real voice, someone ready to fight for you at any given time. Thank ye.

I'm surprised to see such high approvals from Allen especially.

This should be a premier race in 2012. I honestly don't know who will win this.

Bush received over 75% of the vote in my precinct, so yes.

Mr. President,

I am extremely disappointed. I just looked at the Statute page and it seems AG AndrewCT didn't do a s**t on this field.

Thank you for addressing this issue.

I contacted AndrewCT yesterday afternoon about updating the Wiki. While he was unable to update the Wiki at that moment since he can't on his office computers, I am confident he'll update the Wiki within a day or so.

You managed to slip through the cracks and get through it all.

11421  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Survey Atlasia: Presidential Candidate for the RPP on: May 09, 2011, 03:53:40 pm
To be perfectly honest, Yankee is my top pick of those options. But I'd be happy with any of them being my successor.
11422  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: I'm reviving the Atlas Fantasy Sports leagues on: May 08, 2011, 08:50:59 pm
I'm totally in.
11423  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Senate office of NC Yankee (Slightly Louder Rumours of Speech) on: May 08, 2011, 07:56:05 pm
Sir the president has refused to compensate the good citizens of TX for the damage from the storms. I notice that his Imperial Majesty says nothing about TX in his address.

Will NC Yankee also approve of appropriations to benefit the good people of TX ravaged by the storms?
I haven't refused anything, so I'm not sure what you're talking about.

So, has Trumpmania peaked?

Hopefully. It seems like PPP has been finding his favorability with Republicans has been tanking as well.

His birther boat has been sank. He had no other real issues to run with barring protectionism. Yeah, he isn't going anywhere.

The man was destined to fail. He'd make an interesting campaign, but the skeletons that guy has is more than every other candidate in this race combined. He's DOA.
