1  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: The Rise and Fall of Tender Branson (Cranberry's Revenge) on: January 11, 2016, 10:28:00 am
BREAKING NEWS

Although his bold reforms and military conquests made him widely popular at home, Austrian Chancellor Tender Brandon is now in a very hot water over potentially devastating scandal of a sexual nature.

It has been recently revealed that Mr. Branson is in a relationship with one Conchita Schickelgruber. Ms. Schickelgruber, 21, is neither a minor nor is biologically related to the Austrian leader, which made their affair extremely unpopular.

According to the 1832 law, adultphilia is a serious offense. Having intimate relations with someone not related, while not criminalized, is widely considered a deviant behavior.

Just as the news were revealed, four ministers resigned from Mr. Branson's cabinet in protest.

When I think I was in the same room with the pervert, I'm literally sick in my stomach, Dr Josef Fritzl, former Minister of Basementisation, declared. I'm a good family man, you know.

Catholic Archbishop of Vienna condemned the Chancellor's behavior as „attack on the most scared Christian and Austrian values”.

If he's not an agent for the civilization od death, I don't know what is, the Archbishop commented.

Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache (FPÖ) announced his party will leave the coalition, therefore bringing Mr. Branson's government down.

I'm utterly devastated, a Vienna resident told our reporter. I loved the Chancellor. Thanks to his conquest of an obscure American political forum, he brought us pride we never felt since the Imperial times. He was the second coming of Marshall Radetzky. I had no idea he is a schameless pervert.

You might have noticed my two-months long abscence from the forum (easily the longest time I was able to spent away since I registered back in 2009). I'd like to apologize to everyone that might have been upset with my sudden dissapearance, especially folks in Atlasia.

I haven't lost interest in the forum nor the forum community, but I had to get rid off such distractions in order to handle my personal issues. As you may know, I never talk about my personal issues on the forum and I don't want to go into any details. Let's just say I'm presently making efforts to address these issues., including attending an intensive grupt therapy.

I'm intending to catch up with the forum, but my activity will be limited for a time being.

Oh yeah, I haven't forgot about the Rise and Fall of Tender Branson Wink

Until recently, the Update business was just plain creepy, but it is becoming disturbingly creepy. The web is full of potentially dangerous crazies. The "Can O'Corn" dude may just be a bored troll, but spreading of the Update out of your control may have unpleasant consequences.

At the very least you guys should be cautious.

We've just uncovered evidence of a "Deep Update". It was being followed by people who don't post on this forum.

Guys, do you realize how (more) utterly insane this whole business became?

Maybe it's a good idea to stop playing this game? It becoming something you can't control and, one day, it may very well come back and solidly bite you in the ass.

Another forgotten British Prime Minister (1894-95)

More of an Aristocratic celebrity (his image being used on cigar boxes) than a real politician. He did posses some touch for modern politics (like being a chief organizer of the famous Midlothian Campaign), but never served in the Commons, which led Churchill to conclude he "never knew got it works", which is a true handicap for the PM.

Became Prime Minister by default after Gladstone's final resignation, being the less objectionable Liberal to the Queen (logically, the job should've went to Chancellor William Harcourt). After little over a year, he got bored with the demands of the job, so he took the first pretext to resign (losing in the committee on army supply by just seven votes) and went onto losing an election to Salisbury by a landslide. He spent the rest of his life as an increasingly reactionary troll. His terms as PM and Foreign Secretary are rated by historians as failure.

Funnily, his three life goals were to "to win the Derby, to marry an heiress, and to become Prime Minister". He managed all three, although it's too bad he never wished to be an effective PM.

In terms of size (area and population) it's the British Empire.

In terms of longevity and lasting historial impact (as well as dominating the known world to them), it's easily the Roman Empire.

Addressing the disparity in sentencing issue again, I don't see how can we consider her more guilty (and thus the one more deserving death penalty) than an actual triggerman.

You guys don't watch the news?  Prosecutors give people deals to avoid the death penalty all the time.  Killer took the deal.  Where's the confusion?

Again, doesn't mean it's not arbitrary. Deals system is one of the most abused in American law.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Kim Davis Met Secretly with Pope Francis on: October 01, 2015, 11:39:35 am
Not a Catholic, so I honestly don't care what the Pope says. As far as I'm concerned, he's just another man.

Unless you're an athiest, you should have respect to religious leaders, whatever region they may be from.

You know, there are plenty of religious people that doesn't hold religious institutions in particular respect.

And, btw, you still got an "atheist" wrong.

The only person who still posts on Atlas who is original, humorous, and clever.

I'm sorry you have such a low opinion of yourself.

A very noncontroversial poster, which can be good or bad. In his case, it certainly is good.

Addressing the disparity in sentencing issue again, I don't see how can we consider her more guilty (and thus the one more deserving death penalty) than an actual triggerman. True, she initiated the whole business, but he made a conscious decision to fire the shot. The justice would dictate both receiving the same sentence (and for the record, I'm deeply opposed to the death penalty). Such arbitrary disparity in sentencing is a common ground for clemency actions, as you can see there.

As of prosecutors making deals, it's really a rotten and abused business. I again heartily recommend "the Innocent Man". Grisham made an amazing work in the field of nonfiction.

Unfortunately, Oklahoma is so obsessed with the death penalty public officials seldom care about innocence, more interested in putting more and more people to death to appear "tough".

Grisham's "The Innocent Man" covers this better than any other book I can think of.

24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary was worried about having gay friendly passports that Palin would critici on: September 30, 2015, 10:51:35 pm
And the whole time as SoS she opposed gay marriage. She waited until after it had 58% support nationwide to join the majority.

Yeah but isn't it fair to say we all know she really supported it the whole time, but the political winds were different?

I mean c'mon, does anyone here actually think Obama sincerely opposed gay marriage in 2008? Of course not. Why does he get a pass and not her?

Hillary had strongly opposed gay marriage earlier, and never gave any indication of being in favor of gay marriage until 2013. Obama had said he was in favor in the 1990s, and had opposed California's Prop. 8.

I wish commies like you would stay out of politics.

What an un-democratic thing to say.
25  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Are Tony Blair and George Bush 'war criminals'? on: September 30, 2015, 07:17:26 pm
anyone starting a war of agression is a war criminal.

A "war of aggression" against a tyrant is not a crime, neither is one against a planned ethnic  cleansing, like the Kosovo bombings.

So I understand that several Axis aggressions against countries less-than-democratic were not "crimes".

The "war of aggression" is clearly defined as a illegal under the international law.
