Simply fantastic news on a fantastic day. Smiley

I think we shouldn't name the DoEA after someone who will, inevitably, return to run that Department.  Name it after a departed Atlasian, like Colin.
I don't see what's the big deal with that. Using that standard, we'd also have to pick out a different Atlasian for RG and SoFE.
11403  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Reduction of Registration Requirements Amendment (Debating) on: April 11, 2011, 07:58:09 pm
We can reach a compromise there.

I propose following amendment:

Reduction of Registration Requirements Amendment
Article V, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Atlasian Constitution is hereby amended to read:
1.  A person may become a registered voter if they have attained fifty posts and have been registered at the forum for at least ten days. In registration, the person must state their name and State of fantasy residence; In addition, they may optionally state a political affiliation.

How about that, Happy?
Would you be willing to vote for that?

I suppouse so.
In that case, I'd be fine raising the number to 10.

Mitt Romney

Mr. President

Well, I want to say two things.

First of all, why not?

Second of all, it would be better for our federal government budget to stop constant name changes of the executive building by each new Secretary. I mean, come on, people, think about all the money wasted by changing all the papers, charts, signs, informations etc. etc.
I assume this means you'll also support HappyWarriors bill to rename those airports after Atlasians?

Since Rowan once complained on seniority rules:

Make Rowan Happy Act

1. The following Act shall establish factors considered in calculating seniority for all incoming Senators. The Act shall not affect already established seniority of an incumbent Senators moment of passing.
2. For Senators, who are taking an office the same day, regardless on an exact time of swearing-in, following factors shall be used in determining a seniority:
a. Former Senators (length of time served in previous non-consecutive terms)
b. Former Presidents (in order of their terms)
c. Former Vice Presidents (
- In order of the office's place in presidential line of succession
- In order of their terms
e. Former Governors
- In order of Region's population
- In order of their terms
f. Former Lieutenant Governors
- In order of Region's population
- In order of their terms
g. By Region's population
h. By alfabethical order of a registered username
3. Section 3 is not required, but cool


(Probably needs multiple grammar/speeling corrections anyway)
I feel H. is extremely unfair. We weren't told when we signed up that the first letter of our username would have an effect on the game.

I've always been told that we were out of both Irak and Afghanistan. But of course all this happened far before I've joined, so I'll let older Atlasians explain it a bit more clearly.
We are. We're just still funding it.

We're funding a war we are no longer fighting? Where is the money going?

You are correct. Where is the money going currently? That's a good question.

If DownSyndrome was here, he'd brag about how he beat me 3-1 in an April 2007 election and proceed to say that I cried for a year over it.
lol
11414  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The White House on: April 10, 2011, 04:07:26 pm
Just abolish that useless position already.
It isn't as useless as it used to be, now that the SoIA has power to create stories on the regional level. It's a gig I'd personally like, if not for the fact I'm President.
11415  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Tmthforu94/Dallasfan65 Administration: Public Office on: April 10, 2011, 02:29:16 pm
Attention:

The position of SoIA is now vacant. Anyone who is interested in the position is asked to contact me as soon as possible.
11416  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The White House on: April 10, 2011, 02:27:11 pm
Your resignation has been accepted. This is certainly disappointing, but I wish you the best in future endeavors, both in-game and in real life.

The position of Secretary of Internal Affairs is now vacant. Anyone interested in the position of SoIA is asked to contact myself or Dallasfan as soon as possible.

I think you're just throwing me a bone by giving Romney 60% in my county. Tongue  Pretty reasonable map, actually. I think Romney could win Clay County, but probably not by that much, and Owen County would probably vote for Palin, as it is very rural. Would expect Romney to mainly be strong up around Chicago and in Marion County and surrounding suburbs.

Good job! Great to see Romney win. Smiley
11418  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Welcoming Committee on: April 10, 2011, 12:01:19 pm
Bump.

I began feeling that I should start doing my job today as a member of the welcoming committee. I PMed CarlSchulz, a new member who is in the RPP.

Good job, Cathcon. Smiley


We really need to decide some set guidelines that need to be included in the message. Some suggestions:
- Activity Requirements for Voting
- Link to their regional and party Wiki pages
- Possibly name of party chairman
- Link to introduction thread

I hope people consider giving you a chance. You've proven in the past to be a dedicated citizen, and I have no doubt you can return to that.
11420  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The Letís Make This Official Because... (Debating) on: April 10, 2011, 08:46:19 am
Are we through in those places? Do we still have troops there?
We are through in both places, but the Budget Process Committee still put over $100 billion dollars there for military operations.
11421  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: The Keep Japan Afloat and Un-Radiated Act (Debating) on: April 09, 2011, 09:22:59 pm
I strongly urge the Senate to pass this piece of legislation, written by Ben, myself, and Kalwejt.

The Letís Make This Official Because We All Thought It was Already True and Help a Couple of Other Places Act
1.   The $105 billion dollars currently allotted to military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq shall be removed.
2.   $10 billion shall be allocated to humanitarian missions and aid in Ivory Coast.
3.   $13 billion shall be allocated to humanitarian missions and aid in Libya.
4.   Reconstruction Aid in Afghanistan and Iraq shall increase from $6.85 billion to $9 billion.

I thought we were already out of them ? Huh
We are, but in the last budget, we continued to put money there.

Please tell me I didn't vote for that budget.
I don't think you did. Badger had brought it up several times in the debate of the budget, but it was never corrected. JBrase and I happened to notice it back in February when we were studying the budget and possible cuts we could make.

Yes, Macaca wasn't racist either, it was just a funny joke.

We all know George Allen can be racist and dumb, so it's not out of the realm of possibility he asked the question because the man is black.
