Kim Jong-un Not Seen In Two Weeks

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had not been seen in public in two weeks now. The Pyongyang media assures that there's nothing unusual about this.

North Korea Supplied With Nukes?

In related story, an anonymous source close to the British intelligence community had claimed that North Korea may be supplied with a Russian-made hydrogen bombs, in addition to already possessing a few low yield atomic devices. The source of supposed supply is unknown.

Currently, the North Korean arsenal might very well number as high as 20 bombs, the source told us.

This is looking like a Pacific Egyptian Coup, and that doesn't really bode well for Simfan/Mohamed Morsi.

If so he may be facing a necktie.

First of all, it's Simfan. At least get the names right before posting another laughable thing.

This arrest is invalid and SimFan is to be set at his liberty with due compensation for being held under false pretense.

No.

Citizens of the Pacific, it is with great sadness that I must announce that a warrant is now in effect for the arrest of Mr. Simfan34, for treason and criminally abusive neglect of office.  Only through recognizing the legitimacy of the shortly to be elected new Governor and Council will we be able to heal as quickly as possible in this time of the Pacific's dire confusion and need.

Thanks for your attention and please stay tuned for further legislative proposals from the emergency Council.

Simfan is now under arrest:

BREAKING: Pacific Governor Simfan, whose removal from office and arrest has been ordered by Justice Ebowed (whom Simfan too has attempted to dismiss), was detained by the regional police, acting upon Mr. Ebowed's orders, and driven to the undisclosed location.

North Korea Can Now Strike As Far Denver

After conducting a series of successful test with submarine-based missiles, North Korea now possess a capability of striking as far as Denver, Colorado, while operating on Pacific. If operating on Atlantic, their missiles can theoretically reach as far as Springfield, Illinois. However, their new nuclear strike capabilities are based on a single submarine.

2: Leftist Parties

Polish Socialist Party (Polska Partia Socialistyczna)

PPS was the first prewar party to be reestablished, which happened already in 1987, while still under the communist rule. In 1990, that underground formation merged with the exile-based PPS and, through this, the modern PPS can be easily considered the oldest Polish political party, dating all the way back to 1893.

A democratic socialist, PPS is the main leftist party in Poland. Due to it's dissident roots, the party primarily constitutes former oppositionists, such as Jan Józef Lipski, Jacek Kuroń, Józef Pinior, Andrzej Celiński, Zbigniew Bujak, Aleksander Małachowski, Ryszard Bugaj, Karol Modzelewski, exiles (Lidia Ciołkosz, Kazimierz Wąsik) or people who were politically dormant under communism (Jan Mulak, Izabela Jaruga-Nowacka). With time, however, PPS accepted some reformed former members of the Communist Party, like Marek Borowski, Józef Oleksy, Tomasz Nałęcz and Wiesława Ziółkowska.

PPS is a member of Socialist International and Party of European Socialists.



Polish People's Party-Liberation (Polskie Stronnictwo Ludowe-Wyzwolenie)

PSL Wyzwolenie is the second major agrarian political party in Poland, unlike Piast trending visibly to the left, and therefore stronger in the West. Wyzwolenie frequently collaborates with PPS and the two were always parts of the same coalition when in power. Aside of appealing to the more progressive rural voters, the party enjoys some popularity among urban intelligentsia.

Among the best known politicians of Wyzwolenie are former Marshal of the Contract Sejm Mikołaj Kozakiewicz, Roman Jagieliński, Andrzej Aumiller, Krzysztof Janik, Mariusz Lipiński and, contemporary, Wojciech Olejniczak.



Polish Left (Polska Lewica)

PL is a direct heir of the Polish United Workers' Party, formed just after the party's dissolution in January 1990. A socialist-social democratic party, it's primarily constituting reformed former communists, that couldn't find a place anywhere else, although there are significant unreconstructed elements. PL was included to this scenario in place of prewar Communist Party of Poland (as it would be difficult for any openly communist party to exist after 1990).

The PL has been especially hostile toward PPS (and vice versa), which consistently refused to cooperate with this post-communist movement.

Among the party's most notable members are Leszek Miller, Izabella Sierakowska, Jerzy Jaskiernia, Włodzimierz Czarzasty, Marek Dyduch, Włodzimierz Cimoszewicz, Adam Gierek.

PL is a member of the Socialist International.



Polish People's Party-Left (Polskie Stronnictwo Ludowe-Lewica)

PSL-Left is a breakaway group from PSL-Piast, formed before the 1993 election by some of the remaining centre-left elements. Despite basically appealing to the same electorate, PSL-Left did not merge with PSL-Wyzwolenie, since they exists basically only in Galicia region (and Wyzwolenie hardly so). Because of their inability to run a national ticket, members of the PSL-Left are running on the PPS list, electing two MPs as of 1993.

1: Centrist Parties


Polish People's Party-Piast (Polskie Stronnictwo Ludowe-Piast)

PSL-Piast is a centrist-christian democratic agrarian party, more conservative than "Wyzwolenie" (see the next instalment) and especially strong in the East. PSL was briefly reunited in 1990, when the United People's Party (ZLS), which until 1989 was a confessional party under communist domination, merged with PSL-Wilanowskie (that represented oppositionist roots) and agrarian branch of "Solidarity" trade union. Just a year later, the party divided again, into two waring branches. Through it's predecessors, both Piast and Wyzwolenie can claim to be second oldest Polish parties, after PPS (see the next installment).

Piast is known as the main swing bloc in the Sejm, willing to enter government coalitions with both left and right, depending on circumstances.

Among most prominent Piast members can be named Roman Bartoszce, Józef Ślisz, Gabriel Janowski, Artur Balazs (former oppositionist), Waldemar Pawlak, Aleksander Bentkowski, Zdzisław Podkański, Franciszek Stefaniuk, Józef Zych, Stanisław Żelichowski (formerly ZSL) .



Alliance of Democrats (Stronnictwo Demokratyczne)

Alliance of Democrats is the second centrist swing party in Sejm, although since 1990 it has been more willing to cooperate with the right than the left, despite having a minority centre-left wing.

SD is dating all the way back to 1939, having been a second, along with ZSL, confessional party before 1989. Due to it's privileged status under communism, SD is rightly considered the wealthiest Polish political party.

SD is somewhat of a limited big tent party, ranging from of confirmed centrists, such as Bronisław Geremek, Władysław Frasyniuk, Grażyna Staniszewska, thorough moderate conservatives (Hanna Suchocka, Bronisław Komorowski, Aleksander Hall), neoliberals (Leszek Balcerowicz), to centre-left (Jan Lityński, Marek Edelman), and even former communists (Marcin Święcicki, Aleksander Kwaśniewski). This diversity leads critics to describe SD as an opportunistic party of the system.

Internationally, the party is a member of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe.



Bloc of National Minorities (Blok Mniejszości Narodowych)

BMN is a coalition various ethnic minorities in Poland, primarily Germans, Belorussians, Lithuanians and Ukrainians. Although one of the largest party in the Second Republic (when ethnic minorities constituted 1/3 of total population), it's a minor party now, due to a dramatic decrease of ethnic minorities number after 1945.

The Bloc is not running nationwide, as local minority committees are exempted from reaching 5% of the vote nationally. Instead, Germans are running in Opole, Belorussians and Lithuanians in Podlasie, and Ukrainians in Warmia and Masuria and Pomorze, where many were relocated during the internal deportations under Stalinism. The BNM is too small to form a parliamentary club (as one needs to have at least 15 MPs). As of 1993, their caucus constitutes 7 MPs (three German, two Belarusian, one Lithuanian and one Ukrainian).

Politically, the Bloc is focusing on representing the minorities' interests and usually supports (but never partake) present government, unless it's hostile toward them.

Henryk Kroll (German Minority) and Eugeniusz Czykwin (Belarusian) are the bloc's leading figures.

Only on Atlas would this be a controversial opinion that requires TNF to elaborate or justify himself.

There is perhaps nothing more pathetic than adults watching children's cartoons.

What exactly do you consider a "children's" cartoon? Would you consider it pathetic to watch animated films made by Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, etc.?

You do realize the difference between "watching" and "enjoying" something and "obsessing" over it?

Yep, TNF, Kal and oakvale are all reactionaries.

If you really believe (and, sadly, it appears so) that an opinion of adult people obsessing over some kids show is an indicator of being either "progressive" or "regressive", then you are indeed the single dumbest person on the internet, bar none. Quite an accomplishment.

May God have mercy on your soul.

What makes you reactionary is that you are basically advocating traditional gender roles here.

Another far-fetched connection made out of thin air?
