Yes, oakey, your ally in the War On Freedom has been destroyed.  Your gears of Ban Petitions no longer have a friend with which they shall turn! 

We, however, shall never forget your and Inks' victims. 

Sorry to shatter your asinine worldview to pieces, but do you realize that Oakvale was one of those who led the charge against Inks?

Scemantics.

Wow, you really are a moron.

Oh **** off goody two shoes.  I clearly have no idea what the hell went on. 

So why don't you just shut up?

Because I'm sitting here on watch somewhere in Hawaii at 2 AM and this is one of the few sites the Navy's slow ass internet can run and I'd like to BS around to pass the time. 

That's pretty much all you do as a poster.

Warsaw mayoral election is the most publicized race this season.

Here is the first poll for this race. Note that it's still an early stage and some candidates are speculative.

Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz (PO, Inc.) - 48%
Jacek Sasin (PiS) - 18.5%
Ryszard Kalisz (Dom Wszystkich Polska) - 5.6%
Jan Ołdakowski  (PiS) - 5.1%
Sebastian Wierzbicki (SLD) - 3.7%
Piotr Guział (Warsaw Local Community) - 3%
Joanna Erbel (Green Party) - 2.1%
Janusz Korwin-Mille (KNP) - 1.2%
Andrzej Rozenek (TR) - 1.1%
Undecided: 11.8%

Declared turnout: 56.9%

Gronkiewicz is obviously benefiting from splinted field and the fact some other candidates haven't declared yet. Her problem is she's rather unpopular, surviving October 2013 recall election due to insufficient turnout of 25,66%. Out of those voting, over 90% voted to recall.

Problem is that Crist has NOT even ran any TV commercials yet at this stage of the game.

Scott is still hammering him 24/7 with non-stop TV Ads: morning, noon and night.



Let Scott spend his warchest now Wink

I found everything through public websites. He voluntarily posted it publicly.

Sorry, but unless a poster chooses to post his personal information on the forum, that should not be used by others.

Why on Earth do people blame/credit Inks for banning Opebo (or Jmfcst for that matter). In no way did he ban either of them.

Anyway, amazing drama going on. And it is amusing that Inks would not get the IRC tone at all. Tongue

Oh, I definitely get that Gully was being ironic, but that doesn't justify the way he acted.

Doesn't justify you from digging up his personal information in order to intimidate him.

Isn't there a policy against using anyone's personal information, unless such person voluntarily posted them? You didn't use Gully's name on the forum, but you did it on another place forum (IRC) in relation to forum affairs.

Teddy was banned for IRC stuff and rightfully so. You should be happy to just escape with being demoded.

It't too bad David Frost is dead. He would be perfect to interview Inks.

Acio Neves
Grandson of Tancredo Neves, first civilian president electer after the military dictatorship who died before the innauguration

I believe Neves died over a month after his set inauguration, but, due to illness, was not able to take an oath, resulting in Sarney becoming Acting President upon being sworn-in as Vice President. Nevertheless, Neves is officially counted as 30th President of Brazil out of courtesy. Some sources lists his term as from March 15 to April 21, 1985, when he was incapacitated, though most lists him as unable to assume office, even formally.

Seriously, if Al, Hash and BK are ever forced to leave (especially Hash, who's been one of my earliest friends on here), I curse this place and never turn back.

I would leave if Inks did.

Another reason to get rid of Inks Wink

Gmina

Usually translated to English as either "commune" or "municipality": the basic unit of administrative division in Poland since 1974. There are three types of gminas:

- Urban, usually consisting one town or city
- Rural
- Mixed (urban-rular)

Presently, there are 2459 gminas in Poland.




Government of each gmine consist legislative branch (Gmina/Town council) and executive (headed by Mayor for cities/towns/urban/some urban-rural gminas and Wjt for rural gminas).

Of course, gminas are split on smaller units, such as borough in cities/towns and "sołectwo" in rular areas (boroughs are headed by their own Mayors, while "sołetcwo" is headed by "sołtys"). Officeholders on sub-gmina level are elected at the same time as others.


Powiat

The second-level unit, an equivalent and translated as "county". Powiats were abolished from 1975 in favor of more numerous, smaller Voicodeships made up of gminas. Presently, there are 379 Powiats, a number including larger cities with the same administrative status as land powiats. The Capital City of Warsaw is a prime example of city-powiat.



Like gmina, Powiat is being governed by a legislature (Powiat Council or, in case of city-counties, a city council) and executive (headed by Starosta or, in case of city-counties, Mayor).


Voivodeship

The highest-level administrative unit, our equivalent of province.

Voivodeship government is a confusing issue, since it's being ruled jointly by elected, local authorities, and Voivode, appointed by Prime Minister. The Voivode is his direct representative, in charge of managing central government institutions at regional level (such as the police and fire services, passport offices, and various inspectorates).

Locally elected authorities consists legislative (Sejmik) and executive, headed by Marshall, which is the closest equivalent to Governor.

Since 1999, there are 16 Voivodeships (as opposed to 49 before).




Executive elections

Before 2002, all Mayors and Wjts were elected indirectly, by their respective councils. Executives above county level (Starosta, Marshall) continues to be selected by the councils.

125  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: The Inks Question (The Official Forum Community Poll) on: June 30, 2014, 07:45:05 am
86,5% of the voters are in favor of demoding Inks. That's pretty sound.
