Also, what is it with you guys and being "lawful"?  I mean wow, do some of you actually PAY for music or not smoke pot occasionally?  How lameo.

I don't think that's necessarily what lawful means in this context. It has more to do with a preference for order and routine.

I totally disagree. This is an (internet) test on philisophical outlook, not a personality test. Someone who acts erratic and spazzy can absolutely have lawful good outlook on life.

That's why I didn't comment on behavior. We don't necessarily live the kind of life that we are most comfortable with.

If you were Czech, maybe it'd be understandable.

Anyway, I wish there were such a thing. That would imply that this forum only has one. If anyone were to stand out as the creepiest, it'd probably be whoever it was that asked one of the women who post here if she'd want to meet him in a hotel room (assuming I've remembered that correctly).

I won't ask any further questions because I'll be voting soon and it wouldn't seem right. Thanks to everyone who participated and to everyone who was courteous enough not to interrupt and accuse me of being a partisan shill. I honestly just wanted to hear from the candidates, and I hope that they all understand that.

Neither rises to the level of HBO's greatest shows, but I find both entertaining and interesting.

Moreover, they're about as different as two decent shows produced for premium cable in 2013 could be. I'm not sure that there's any value in comparing the two.

Candidates who missed earlier questions should feel at liberty to answer them later, but I'd like to ask something general before the election begins. I've also asked Secretary Superique to provide a couple of foreign policy questions. I will continue to ask questions as long as candidates are answering the.

QUESTION 3: What is something unique - in terms of expertise, personality, ideology, or any other kind of perspective - that you would bring to the Senate?
8  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: April 2014 At-Large Senate Debate Discussion Thread on: April 17, 2014, 01:10:26 am
I created a commentary thread so that these discussions could take place there. Please direct this conversation there so that we can focus on the candidates.

One of my party's candidate's is on leave until Friday and another's activity is reduced because of the approach of Easter. If a party's chairman is going to operate in this as chairman as opposed to a candidate, I demand the right to provide a response to an attack on my members rather then let such stand unchallenged.

If you refuse to urge the participants to not cast such distracting aspersions and deny the right to defend my members against them, then how is this a debate and not a partisan sham?

I created this thread to give everyone else a chance to respond. There's no reason for you to refuse to post here like every other non-candidate.

The debate is for Senate candidates. Its purpose is to give voters the chance to hear from those candidates. Ideally, they would sort out these rules well in advance, but this is a last-minute affair.

I asked everyone else to refrain from commenting in the thread to keep the focus on the candidates, and I'll ask you again: Please have enough respect for me and for them to refrain from doing so again.

Thank you, candidates. I hope that JCL and A person will have time to answer that later, but in the interest of covering as many topics as possible before the election begins, I'll be moving on.

QUESTION 2: The Senate has repealed over fifty laws since last fall. What federal laws would you repeal?
11  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: The Duke-Scott Educating The People Reform (Debating) on: April 16, 2014, 04:11:24 pm
If we're going to do this for everyone and thing which is eligible, we'll have a bill longer than war and peace. The most we should do is set the criteria by which textbooks are evaluated.

I believe that was Shua's point. It's certainly the one that I was trying to make. In any case, the 2007 law that pointed already has the subject covered, unless the Senate wants to change that.

When you hear the phrase, imagine that it's an abbreviation of "I could care less... and I do." My guess would be that most people who use it are thinking that.

Posting this because I hope that it'll be needed.
14  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: April 2014 At-Large Senate Debate on: April 16, 2014, 03:17:18 pm
Because time is limited, I'd like to begin straight away with a question. Feel free to include an introduction in your response if you would like to.

Also, if anyone has any questions that they'd like to ask the candidates, including follow-ups, please PM them to me. I'd prefer to reserve this thread for the candidates only.

QUESTION 1: Senator Yankee's Reforming Public Health Act has been under debate for several weeks.  This legislation combines several proposals to reduce federal healthcare spending, including health savings accounts, high risk pools, wellness programs, and reductions in chronic care benefits.

What are your thoughts on this proposal? More broadly speaking, what are your thoughts on the Atlasian National Healthcare Program (a.k.a. "Fritzcare")? Are reforms necessary to cut costs? Are reforms necessary to improve the quality of care offered? If so, what are they?

I agree with most of the opinions in this thread. FP in principle but HP in the US where copyright laws are written and enforced to enable wanton rentseeking.

Wonderful. You have my endorsement.

It's an idiomatic expression, albeit not one that I would use. Francophones wouldn't understand.

No. It's not an idiomatic expression. It's a gross logical mistake. One that should be systematically pointed out and result in the public shaming of the person who used it.

It doesn't follow the same logic as the phrase that it evolved from. So what? This is English. There is no Académie anglais. People communicate as they please.

I drink about 10 cups per day. Mostly black and green. Coffee is good too, but I drink it more sparingly to avoid becoming physically dependent.

What should the region do with the Pentagram?
22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: April Senate Election Discussion Thread on: April 16, 2014, 02:18:35 pm
Adam has campaigned some, but I wouldn't even know who the other candidates were if Cris were not keeping track in this thread.

I would be willing to hold a debate if any candidates are interested (in concert with someone from a different party, if desired).
23  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: do you support any abortion restrictions? on: April 16, 2014, 10:50:20 am
Allowing abortion in cases of rape and incest sends the message to men that they can use women however they want sexually without consequence.  It essentially is the ultimate objectification of women. 

Because obviously "sending a message" to men is the only relevant concern. Roll Eyes

It seems that rapists aren't the only ones who are willing to treating women as nothing more than a means to an end.
