1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: In case you were wondering, George Zimmerman is still a very pleasant fellow on: August 30, 2015, 09:52:31 pm
There's no blue checkmark, so I highly doubt it's really Zimmerman.

I think that blue checkmark is used just by famous people, like actors, musicians, athletes and politicians.
Zimmermann is more infamous than famous.

Twitter's standard is that anyone famous enough that someone could conceivably bother to make a fake account to imitate or parody the person get ones so everyone knows it's real.

Zimmerman easily meets that standard.
I don't know. I think there would be a firestorm if Twitter legitimized a vile murderer.

All I found is that the wiki says it's his account.

Gee, if only we had an executive leader who could appoint new cabinet members...

Seriously, though, does Bore even care anymore? Not appointing new cabinet members is simply farcical.

If he doesn't care then he should resign and let his successor do the job (seriously, there are two months of his remaining). If, since we can't rule that out, he's tied in his real life, he should post a leave of absence. Otherwise it's just being a dick, whether intentional ot not.

Completely agree. I'm kind of getting the impression that not only he doesn't care, but he actually doesn't want Atlasia to survive (maybe he thinks it's the best way to change the status quo?) and thinks that an absent President will fix things.

What's your opinion on Senator Polnut calling for Bore to either appoint new cabinet members or step down? I, for one, wholeheartedly agree.

So do I.

Griffin's still in charge of the Census Bureau, so there are technically two cabinet officers.

Right, my bad. Still, it makes things only marginally better.

You are aware, of course, that this is not April 1.

You don't say!

Except for Homely at the DoFE, we don't have a cabinet and the President haven't made a single nomination in weeks to fix it.

Oh yes, the GM spot is vacant as well.

Out of those declared, Adam. Beside, with the greatest possible respect to Clarence, he's been away too long to be properly familiar with the situation.

(Actually female leaders worldwide often get the short of the stick, normally being handed over the reigns at the bum-end of a fading administration to turn things round, before invariably getting routed

Yeah, exactly the case here.

Yep, that's right.
11  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Determining regulations of Constitutional Convention. (Debating) on: August 29, 2015, 02:13:25 pm
This Senate's decision to award Constitutional Convention delegates on the basis of political party membership is an entirely novel and disturbing trend in Atlasian history.  Never have partisan considerations played such a prominent role in reshaping Atlasian society.

I agree totally.

A right-wing Democrat who will lose the primary, just like Lieberman.

Are you trying to be ironic or you changed your mind on your former crush?
13  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Polish PM Ewa Kopacz on: August 29, 2015, 01:29:59 pm
I'm actually sorry for her. She is not a very good politician (as opposed to Tusk who, while a lackluster PM, was really good at playing politics) and she was put in an impossible position, with the party rapidly deteriorating and growing social discontent. Her predecessor surely knew when to leave and take another job Tongue

That being said, I prefer her over most PO politicians. Given the situation, she's not doing bad, though she's probably doomed. Lean FF.

Mitt Romney.

Happy now, Winfield?

It's impossible to answer such question.
16  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Vice Presidential Election Amendment (Debating) on: August 28, 2015, 06:52:16 am
Well, the ConCon is coming, so we may better wait for this instead of proceeding with individual amendments like this, which may be soon excluded from the new constitution anyway.

I don't agree with your assesments the Vice Presidency should remain as it is, but for the reason states above, as well as the fact we're getting nowhere, I've decided to withdraw myself as a sponsor.
17  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The "Why Can't I Hold All These Offices?" Amendment on: August 28, 2015, 06:50:52 am
I will not support this amendment.
The ConCon will likely reduce the number of regions and we can debate and maybe insert that clause in the text approved by the ConCon.

Well, we probably should wait for a ConCon, instead of making individual amendments.

No objections from me
19  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Determining regulations of Constitutional Convention. (Debating) on: August 26, 2015, 02:30:45 pm
I think 5 Senators would be fine, especially given that we're pretty much the only active federal institution (apart from the DoFE) at the moment

You all completely underestimated Donald Trump two months ago and you're paying the price for it now. He is in it to win it and if you want to stop him you can't just wait and hope he goes away on his own.

Given all that happened since the OP, this thread is hillarious.
