Can I have the following analyzed for the Mideast Assembly, please:

Quote
Native American Financial Aid Act

1) Beginning in the 2014 fiscal year, the Mideast region shall establish an annual fund for the "Native American Dreams Scholarship."

2) Any enrolled member of a Mideast Regional Native American Tribe and their children shall be eligible for this scholarship if they are attending a college or university in the Mideast region.  Awards shall be made to all eligible applicants.

3) Eligible applicants shall receive grants of up to $2500 per year for up to four years of full time university study, including summer courses if applicable.  Students shall be eligible for five years of funding if the student's program specifically requires it.

4) The Mideast region shall set up a Bureau of Indian Affairs to streamline the handling of Native American issues in the region, including but not limited to soliciting and managing donations from interested citizens to help fund the Native American Dreams Scholarship.

Thank you

OFFICIAL ESTIMATE

This legislation would cost the Mideast region $4.5 million annually.

How much would it cost the federal government to assume all educational funding from the regions, forgive all existing student loan debt, and make higher education completely free of charge?

OFFICIAL ESTIMATE

Providing these services would cost $830 billion dollars in addition to current federal education spending.

Northeast Environment Act:
1. Hereby the Assembly and the Governor are creating a Regional Park Service.
2. The Northeast Regional Park Service will preserve environmentally and culturally significant lands in the Northeast Region.
3. The Northeast Park Service will create new parks in the region designated as such by the Northeast government.
4. The Northeast Regional Park Service will maintain park safety, management and administration.
5. The Northeast government will hire 250 employees to manage the Northeast Regional Park Service.

Dear Game Moderator, could I get a estimation of the costs of the Northeast Environment Act.


OFFICIAL ESTIMATE

Part 5 of this act will cost between $7.5 million and $25 million per year.

Pornography (or most of it, at least) has no moral content. I can't say that I'm confident that it's always healthful, though.
1731  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of oatmeal on: December 14, 2013, 02:49:23 pm
Eating oatmeal plain is almost as barbaric as eating pasta without sauce.

Maple syrup is ideal. I had a large bottle that I'd bought in the Adirondacks a few months ago, but my ex took it when she moved out. A shame. Honey suffices, but it's not half as good.

For the adventurous, there many possibilities - fresh fruit, nuts, granola, raisins, cinnamon, ginger, even cloves.

Obviously a dumb, and thus horrible, practice.

Frankly, I wouldn't hesitate to call these tactics Gestapo-like.
1735  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How high would you like to see the minimum wage raised? on: December 12, 2013, 05:32:26 pm
In the absence of a livable basic income guarantee or some other kind of social safety net, I think that $12-15, indexed to inflation and local cost of living, would be sufficient.
1736  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Bill Clinton on: December 12, 2013, 05:21:01 pm
One of the luckiest presidents in American history. Had his tenure not coincided with eight years of relative international stability, economic prosperity, and insanity from the opposition party, people may have noticed that he wasn't especially competent.

This is true, but... who has been a competent president lately?  I can't help but grade on a curve here.

He's hardly my favorite person, but I think H.W. qualifies.
1737  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Beer or wine? on: December 12, 2013, 05:14:06 pm
Whatever pairs best with what I'm eating, obviously.

If I'm not eating anything... a high ABV IPA (e.g. Dogfish Head 90-minute) would probably be my preference.

Endorsed for a high preference. I disagree with you more often than not, but Nyman needs your conscientiousness.
1741  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A Statement on the Pacific on: December 12, 2013, 10:14:49 am
I'm not going to name names, but there's been too many who are in the Pacific promising activity and reform one day and packing their bags for Nyman the next.

"Naming names" would be far more honorable than casting aspersions on every Pacifican who holds federal office.

Funny story: last year I walked into my Social Studies class early and an election map on this site was on the projector screen.

That must have been awkward.

1744  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: San Francisco tech nerds: Poor people are "trash" and need to "stay out" on: December 11, 2013, 10:54:22 pm
Amazon is a unique case, though. There will be plenty of time to turn a profit once they've achieved world domination. Until then, I'll enjoy my access to cheap consumer goods.

Again, Amazon is not what I am talking about. To those who didn't bother reading the article (apparently everyone ITT), I will elaborate on what this guy actually does.

To clarify, I was responding to DC's post, not the OP. My reaction to that is almost exactly what bedstuy posted. Disgust tempered by my own annoyance with being menaced and panhandled only a couple of blocks from my apartment.

While I don't necessarily think that it would be a bad idea, allowing federal officeholders to simultaneously hold seats on the Pacific Council would be a violation of the federal constitution.

I honestly don't get how anyone can believe that a ban on handguns will make handguns more difficult to obtain than how difficult it is to obtain marijuana now (that being not difficult at all.)

Can you grow a handgun?
1749  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: would you support an amdt. to constitution that bans the sale & ownership of on: December 11, 2013, 10:42:39 am
I would prefer a clean repeal of the Second Amendment.

A few months after birth, when consciousness develops.
