Tmth?  Teddy?  You guys doing anything?

I am very close to giving up on this.  Maybe it was a bad idea.  For this to go anywhere, I need members to actually participate.  I've tried to keep the discussion going, but it feels like I'm talking to myself.  Tongue
Absolutely. While I haven't communicated with Teddy yet (never been on at the same time), I have been talking to several people on another site, and at least one person has joined Atlas.

Aye
11403  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Mideast Assembly Thread on: November 13, 2010, 11:13:50 pm
I would like to remind everyone that this bill would only tax abortions in the 2nd and 3rd trimester, minus rape, incest, and mother's life in danger. And this tax would be on the doctor performing the abortion, not the patient.

For those who currently oppose the bill, what provisions/amendments would you like to be see made that could possibly make you support the bill? As always, I'm very interested in seeking bi-partisan solutions, because I feel that both sides need to work together to solve the problem. Complaining isn't going to get anything accomplishments, but working together on this will.

I have a question.

SoEA Hashemite, what do you think makes Osvaldo Aranha worthy of having a building named in his honor?
11407  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Obama's intellectual equal on: November 13, 2010, 02:11:26 pm
Mitt Romney is the obvious choice, followed by Christie and Daniels.

So even this thread has turned into partisan arguing. Wow
Did you honestly expect everyone to just say "Oh, good idea" and stop? Tongue
11409  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Mideast Assembly Thread on: November 12, 2010, 11:59:44 pm
Now, the abortion bill: I will absolutely not vote for a bill having a tax over $500.  Even then, I will be introducing an Amendment putting all the money made from taxes into public schools in the Mideast, just so y'all know.
That'll be taken into consideration when we get to the abortion bill. However, we first need to discuss the firearms safety bill which was introduced by Assemblyman Junkie.

I'd like to give a warm shout to A-Bob. A-Bob is a very good friend to me, and always has a positive outlook on life. He makes a lot of positive contributions to this forum, and is a rising conservative star in Atlasia. I'm very glad I've had the chance to meet and become friends with A-Bob. I trust and respect him more than anyone else here.

The bill is now on Wiki. When it's all said and done, the page will be over 13,000 characters. Tongue All I have left to do is Assembly Actions, which will be done eventually.

Governor Update 29
After contemplation, I have made a decision on the Mideast DUI bill. While I disagree with one amendment that was made, I still believe that overall, this is a very good and well-written bill.

I hereby sign this bill into law.

This is insulting to Noem. She seems to be a very intelligent woman from what I've read and heard. This comment was based solely due to looks, since both are middle-aged, attractive women. Hopefully Noem considers running for something greater in the future, as I'd love for her to be President one day. Smiley

I got a 4.0 for the second straight grading period. I am normally not one to brag on my grades, but this is a very rare accomplishment for me. The last time I had straight A's was 6th grade. Wish I would have started this trend Freshman year, not now...

I'd like for him or Barbour to become Chair. I supported Steele when he first ran, but I don't think he's done an adequate job. I doubt he'll run for a second term, as he knows he'd probably lose.
11420  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.
11421  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Former Senator Jim Talent gearing up for a rematch on: November 12, 2010, 03:51:44 pm
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.
11422  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Proposal. on: November 11, 2010, 11:13:16 pm
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.
11423  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Proposal. on: November 11, 2010, 11:01:28 pm
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.
11424  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.
