11701  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The White House on: April 28, 2011, 05:17:19 pm
Statement From the President

Good Evening,

I was saddened to hear the news this morning of tragedy in the Imperial Dominion of the South and Mideast Regions. The IDS has always been very close to my heart, and the Mideast Region is my home. My heart now goes out to the victims of the tornadoes that struck through the regions yesterday evening. This weekend, I will personally be visiting the IDS and Mideast, assessing the damage and meeting with victims.

The Atlasian Government is prepared to help the both regional governments with relief in any way we can. I hereby order FEMA to the devastated areas to help with the catastrophe that struck the regions.

The people of the IDS and Mideast are in my thoughts and prayers, and I ask all Atlasians to join me in thinking and praying for the regions. Thank you, and Dave Bless.

are you keeping wombats as pets Mr. President?
While I am a friend of the Wombat Nation, I myself have a deeper relationship with the possums.
11703  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Guinea Pigs & Co. Protection Act (Debating) on: April 28, 2011, 08:16:22 am
I propose this amendment:
Quote
Guinea Pigs & Co. Protection Act

Considering that neutering of domesticated little rodent species and marsupials, is much more complicated, health and life threatening procedure than neutering or larger animals, like dogs or cats:
1. Only a veterinarian with a certificate of knowledge and skills sufficient to perform such procedure, shall be allowed to
2. Certificates shall be issued by Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service division of the Department of Internal Affairs, with a strict regard to a veterinarian qualifications


Lord Speaker, the floor is all yours again!
11704  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Reduction of Registration Requirements Amendment (Debating) on: April 28, 2011, 08:10:31 am
I really don't think it is going to hurt much. My amendments were to make sure it won't hurt that much Tongue

There is a huge difference between 50 days and 10 days. If this passes, we could get overwhelmed before even realizing it.
Where are you even getting 50 from? The current requirement is 15. I think you're way exxagerating what the effect would be of this amendment. If a "zombie invasion" ever occurred again, I'm sure it would occur whether we had the current requirements or the proposed requirements.
11705  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Ethanol Subsidy Reform Act (Debating) on: April 27, 2011, 09:41:11 am
I would actually propose that we remove all ethanol subsidies. Or at least have a plan that gradually eliminates them over a period of X number of years.

I just wanted an inital elimination of half and then later maybe the elimination of the rest at a later point.
We'd be saving time by following Rowan's suggestion and phasing it out rather that passing another bill at a later time eliminating them.

I don't understand - Obama is only leading Romney by 3 and Huckabee by 1, yet you're giving North Carolina a 5-9.9% shade.

You're still reading pbrower2a's posts, after all this time?  Huh
I have it on ignore, but I do show it's posts from time to time for humor. Hundreds of tl;dr post's later, I still cannot understand it's method is for these maps, and I doubt many can.

11712  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Guinea Pigs & Co. Protection Act (Debating) on: April 26, 2011, 08:55:18 am
You all got a point.

Hence, to resolve this once and for all, I propose following amendment:

Guinea Pigs & Co. Protection Act

Considering that neutering of domesticated little rodent speices, is much more complicated, health and life threatening procedure than neutering or larger animals, like dogs or cats:
1. Only a veterinarian with a certificate of knowledge and skills sufficient to perform such procedure, shall be allowed to
2. Certificates shall be issued by Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service division of the Department of Internal Affairs, with a strict regard to a veterinarian qualifications


Lord Speaker, the floor is all yours again!
Don't forget marsupials! Also, species, not speices. Wink

Hello. Smiley You'll be pleased to know you are no longer a citizen of Atlasia, so there's no threat of getting annoying personal messages anymore.
11714  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Reduction of Registration Requirements Amendment (Debating) on: April 25, 2011, 04:21:36 pm
I agree with Shua that 10 is the easiest amount (other than 0), but my biggest goal with this constitutional amendment is to discourage spamming on the forum at-large, and 50 helps achieve that goal.
11715  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Reduction of Registration Requirements Amendment (Debating) on: April 25, 2011, 02:01:30 pm
What about 50 posts and 15 days? Encourages less spam and still makes new users wait two weeks before signing up?
If 10 can't get passed, I'd at least like to see 14, since I think that's easier to figure.
11716  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Guinea Pigs & Co. Protection Act (Debating) on: April 25, 2011, 01:38:10 pm

Shua, that's interesting but, despite size, small dog neuterins is not as complicated as guinea pig or hampster. See, diffrent testicals, lol.

okay but what about rabbits? weasels?
Additionally, raccoons, possums, and ferrets?

What do you call START? The Automatic Weapons Ban? Comprehensive immigration reform? Appearing in an Obama campaign ad? Chairing Obama's inaugural committee? Praising Obama's foreign policy during the '08 campaign and failing to endorse a candidate? Being on Obama's short-list of potential SOS candidates? That sounds pretty liberal to me.

I call that bi-partisan, being ready to work with both sides. I admire Senator Lugar for making efforts to work with President Obama. And he did endorse McCain in 2008. Maybe he didn't in the primaries, but he did in the general election. Picking out a few pieces of legislation Lugar supported in the past few years is not an accurate interpretation of his three decades in Washington D.C., and to suggest it is, well, is quite ridiculous. I could come back with hundreds of times Lugar has stood with the Republican Party.
Even if Dick Lugar did endorse McCain, I doubt he really meant it. After the second presidential debate, he released a statement praising Obama's foreign policy. And what about his support for Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan? I cannot forgive him for supporting liberal activist judges, either.
And how do you know Lugar didn't mean it? Palm readings? Health Care, Stimulus Packages, DADT...three of the biggest issues during the Obama Administration...three issues Senatore Lugar stood with the GOP on.

I don't know if I like those results... I certainly like sen. Lugar, but I'd prefer a moderate democrat taking that seat =( ...

And if the primary was Tmth agains feeble, I guess Tmth would win.. sorry feeble =/
If it makes you feel better, Mourdock would crush Jill Long Thompson. Just about anyone could beat her.

what about Brad Ellsworth or Joe Donnelly? You may consider Ellsworth a conservative democrat, but I'm not sure that's true... he voted FOR the health care reform Wink
The only Democrat who could beat Mourdock is Bayh, and he isn't running. I personally would love to see Weinzapfel run, and would support him over many Republicans, but I doubt he would.

Isn't Weinzapfel a liberal democrat?? He might run if it's clear Lugar will loose the primary. I really don't know.
Remember that Tmth also supports Lugar...and Weinzapfel has, I believe, denied interest in running.
Weinzapfel is center-left, like many Democrats. He just has a proven record of working with both sides in Evansville. He'd probably be better for Governor, though I'd support Pence over him.

I fail to see the point you're trying to make, Feeble. Lugar has a longstanding record as a conservative, bi-partisan Republican.
11721  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Reduction of Registration Requirements Amendment (Debating) on: April 24, 2011, 10:40:41 am
This is a constitutional amendment, hence the "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 seven days. In registration, the person must state their name and State of fantasy residence; In addition, they may optionally state a political affiliation.

Winfield
Rockefeller Republican Party (RRP)
Rhode Island

I have established this new political party, after having first checked with the moderator.  As advised by the moderator, upon being established, it is recognized as a party in Atlasia, though not one of the major parties, as it does not have six members.

Anyone interested, please feel free to sign up to the Rockefeller Republican Party.

Thank you.   

I resign from the Regional Protection Party (RPP).



Good luck to your new party! Smiley
