They can't impeach you with a LOA posted.

Although that would be entertaining.
104  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Do you support Atlasia adopting a bicameral legislature? on: May 16, 2015, 03:06:11 pm
I prefeer adopting the German model:

1. Lower house being elected popularly, ideally at large.
2. Upper house modeled on the Bundesrat with representatives of regional governments sitting there (Governors rotating as chairs). This chamber would be charged specifically with regional issues.

Otherwise, I'd be fine with the lower house, elected at large and the upper one representing either regions or districts (if former, they senators should be selected by legislatures).

Hollande's Assassin Captured

An assassin, who this morning fatally shot French President Hollande in Paris, is now in custody, after being apprehended during a routine check. He had promptly confessed. His name is Christophe Costantini and just two weeks ago, he's been expelled from the National Front for "extremism".

I've decided to expand the wiki a bit, by adding stuff "created" during my tenure as GM, whenever relevant (see: http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Puerto_Santos)

I think previous GMs, that are still active, could do the same.

There's a side of retributive justice that has not been raised, but is relevant. It isn't about punishment to the criminal, but closure to the public who endured the trauma of knowing people directly or indirectly impacted by the bombing.

I don't believe it's really working. They may feel better for a brief moment, but it won't bring back anybody to life nor heal sustained wounds. Beside, under American system, they will have to wait for years (maybe even two decades) before he is executed and many won't even live to see that. No hope for a closure, even brief one, for them.

I honestly don't see people impacted nor population in general benefiting from executing him (nor anyone else).

Unfortunately, I'm not sure whether a deregistered citizen can be charged with anything.

The best thing would be to ban him from the wiki.

President of France Assassinated

François Hollande (PS), President of the French Republic, had been shot to death in Paris earlier this morning, while riding his motorbike on a private visit with limited security. A massive hunt for the still unknown assassin is underway.

The late President on his motorbike

President of the Senate, Gérard Larcher (UMP), will serve as Acting President until new president is selected in a snap election.

3) Nothing will happen because SLD has money and buildings and "caviar left" leader position will be unchallenged

It would be hilarious to have SLD turning into another SD.

A lot of you don't know this but my username is actually not named after B.B. King at all.

So you named yourself "King" out of pure delusion of grandeur?
114  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: BREAKING: Boston Bomber sentenced to death on: May 15, 2015, 03:23:53 pm
Putting Tsarnaev to death won't serve any purpose at all. Some may feel better for a short moment, but their loved ones are gone forever and their wounds will never be completely healed. It won't deter anybody and Tsarnaev will only get off easier than rotting in prison for the rest of his life. And the whole notion of "retributive justice" is useless to society.

As of those who feel happy about a fellow man being executed without having any connection to the case, I can't help thinking of them as a bit bloodthirsty. "Justice is served" is a pathetic excuse for their own primitive instincts.

Freedom state Smiley

Anyway, Nebraska hadn't executed a single person since 1997 (and just 3 in last 50 years), so it was pretty much a life without parole on death row.

People really ought to have a little more compassion for humanity. Really despicable outcome.

Sorry.  I have zero compassion for someone who obviously had no compassion for the innocent people he killed and maimed. 

I thought we're suppoused to be better than them.

Caio everyone! Just checking in here. I probably won't be on again for several days, so my leave remains in effect.

Too bad, your Deputy had already unintentionally deepened financial troubles Tongue

Just last week we saw that Saudi Arabia had imprisoned Mark Hooper, and sentenced him to death for a non-lethal crime. Despite frantic lobbying by myself, the Secretary of Internal affairs and President Bore we have been unable to get a break through with the Saudis. As I said before, this action is simply not acceptable. For too long in our nation we've been afraid to tackle injustices abroad. Saudi Arabia has a history of crushing dissident, executing LGBT citizens and financing international terrorism. Yet for too log we've been afraid to tackle these issues. I'm sure many will say that we shouldn't criticize the Saudis, but I'm sure these were the same voices who told us not to criticize the brutality of apartheid, or the corruption of the Shah of Iran. We should never be afraid to have an international voice.

You're saying it as Senator or Deputy SoIA?

These are my views, not the administration

OK, just needed to check.
