Seems nice, although I'm not sure we should be associating ourselves with Christianity like that. Your Holiness? Cardinals?

I think something original and, certainly, unorthodox would be best.

I don't have any specific idea on my own, though.

Let's bring this bitch to order. First step: getting all those official-type things out of the way - flag, constitution, etc. I think we can go by the Fundamental Law of Vatican City as a model and maybe have some yellow and white ono the flag? Maybe some purple to represent our Ganonsyonian heritage?

I propose we first move with all those official-type things, because it's a long overdue.

You're right. Wilson was not fit to stay on and stepping down was a sensible decision, though shocking to general public (not aware of his issues). If he stayed on, he wouldn't do any better than poor Callaghan.

Yeah, seriously. Why can't they just be mature and refrain from celebrity references like Family Guy?

Good one.
31  General Discussion / Alternative History / Harold Wilson doesn't resign in 1976 on: November 24, 2014, 05:33:52 pm
What if Harold Wilson has decided against retiring in 1976?

Some people believe that the UK political history would be altered significantly, like the former Labour Cabinet Minister Barbara Castle, who has once said that had Wilson stayed on, Conservatives wouldn't win in 1979 and Thatcher would never become Prime Minister.

On the other hand, Labour's won only a slim majority of three in October 1974, which has already disappeared in results of by-elections by the time Callaghan took over. Also, there are many evidences that Wilson's once phenomenal mental abilities were in early decline by the time he retired, due to an early Alzheimer disease.

Perhaps Wilson, had he stayed on, would decide to call a snap general election to regain a majority?

Well we guess it's time to call the Council of our Cardinals to decide some stuff.

No. I would certainly prefer you to show some class at the day a man died.

I find his views to generally be quite naive (good guys/bad guys) and one-sided but likely the result of honest convictions.

Voted HP because of the comments in the most recent American police shooting thread (we should start numbering them), but he's not really. We've always gotten along despite differences.

I can subscribe to this.
36  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you believe Iran is attempting to develop nuclear weapons? on: November 24, 2014, 12:02:28 am
I more or less agree with Clark's analysis.

Considering that Iran is surrounded by hostile nuclear states (Israel, Pakistan, India) it makes strategic sense for them to have that capacity as well. And obviously every state has the right to develop nuclear energy. That said, nuclear proliferation is obviously not a good thing.

Exactly. Five "recognized" recognized nuclear powers has an unfair and sometimes dangerous advantage over a rest of the world. "I have divine right to posess nuclear capability, but when someone from outside the club does that, it's dangerous and we must stop them" mentality is pure hipocrisy.

Anyone else find it weird how Flo in his first days as SoIA, a taxpayer-funded job, is wasting the people's time and money on office time by attacking my campaign rather than doing his actual job to enforce the internal affairs of this country? Last time I checked, the SoIA isn't supposed to launch smear campaigns so he can get his friend elected governor.

So, police are supposed to wait to have a gun pointed at them?  Remember, they didn't necessarily know this was a toy. 

You just can't reach for a gun when you're around cops.  You should treat cops like people who might shoot you without a good reason.  You shouldn't look at them, you shouldn't talk to them and you shouldn't mess around with fake guns near cops for God's sake.  And kids in places like Cleveland should never have toy guns, it's way too dangerous. 

IF YOU LOOK AT THE POLICEMAN, YOU WILL TURN INTO A STONE!!!!!111

Cuomo! Somehow I can't make myself vote for Stalin - one of the most vile creatures in the history of mankind without any redeeming features whatsoever.

I like his mustache.

I've designed better websites in one hour of Computer class.

Webb got a lot of money. He should have paid you for a better site instead of doing it himself.

What a cheap cracker that guy is.

Governor FitzGerald deserved nothing less than relocation to Vorkuta.

50  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could Alaska go Libertarian in 2016? on: November 23, 2014, 04:58:46 am
Indeed, Alaska is not a "libertarian state". It has a strong independent tilt, so I can see the state voting for a strong independent presidential candidate, assuming said candidate enjoys Perotesque levels of support at the latter's prime.

Otherwise, it's still a Republican stronghold in presidential races.
