I am positively surprised at this budget. The projected surplus (I'm aware that we still have to check whether the bills we have passed during the last year will have any impact on the) gives us some leeway to tackle those parts of the high speed rail routes that are not covered by federal pork.

Did you start this thread to taunt us? Sad

No, after all it isn't the first time the Swiss were able to beat Canada in a big championship. Wink

Switzerland doing bizarrely well so far.

Yes, it's starting to become uncanny. I guess I'm going to enjoy it as long as it lasts. I'm certainly glad the Swiss ice hockey federation has been patient with coach Simpson since it seems that his system is working really well now.

I'm thrilled by the excellent first two games of the Swiss team. First they beat Sweden, and now the Canadians in a penalty shootout. Other teams that had a reasonable successful start to the tournament are Finland, Russia and the US.

A clear "yes" for all three.

I'm surprised at the Yankee/SJoyce result. It seems that in such a race the overwhelming majority of Labor members would back Yankee. I would have expected the opposite.

Climate sciences is not my field of expertise so I admit I have no clue. One should be able to rely on experts when it comes to such questions, but for me as a layperson contradictory statements by climate experts have left me wondering whether it's really accurate to speak of man-made global warming. For example, not too long ago many climate scientists claimed that future Central European generations would hardly see snow anymore. Now, a couple of snowy winters later, most of these experts say that we are going to see increasing snowfall due to global warming. I'm simplifying things to a great extent but contradictions like these are the reason why many people doubt whether global warming is man-made. After all, it wouldn't be the first time in history that basically the entire scientific community is wrong.

What it takes to be an effective governor

When I first ran for Mideast governor a year ago - I was the only candidate who was interested in the job - our region was in mediocre shape at best. As RG homelycooking's official census statistics show, the Mideast only had 24 citizens and ranked third behind the Northeast and the IDS when it came to the number of registered players. When I left office, the Mideast was the largest region with 37 citizens.

Now it would be presumptuous of me to claim that I am the only person who can take credit for this growth, but I have no doubts that the measures which have been taken during my term have contributed to making the Mideast a more active and vibrant region. I have already mentioned some of these measures which have proven very successful for the Mideast so I will simply restate my main point: Governors in Atlasia don't need to be supermen in order to have a tangible impact on the regions they govern. Quite on the contrary, Atlasian governors first and foremost have to make sure that the simple and unspectacular work is getting done. Among other things, this means that a governor has to make the necessary Wiki updates, be ready to work with the Assembly on a daily basis, and maintain and improve the communication with the citizens of his region. Indeed, I think that being governor in Atlasia primarily means that you are not so much a visionary as an effective administrator; because if you are not capable of doing the basic work, you will fail.

Vote ZuWo/Cathcon for active leadership - we have the experience to get the job done. Smiley

If it helps clarifying the duties of the Governor/Lt. Governor I have nothing against this amendment.

Aye
1562  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Survey Atlasia: Supreme Court Justices Approval Ratings on: May 03, 2013, 03:41:53 pm
This is alarming. The best is to impeach the sitting justices and establish term limits for the next ones. Atlasia can't afford to have justices who stopped caring a long time ago about what's going on in the game.

Wiki Update

In order to support the governor (and to make my and Cathcon's life a bit easier if we are elected Tongue), I have started updating the list of Mideast citizens. If you notice any errors, feel free to point them out or correct them on your own. The work isn't complete so any kind of help is welcome! Smiley
1564  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A-Bob Research Center: Mideast Gubernatorial Poll on: May 03, 2013, 09:52:11 am
Results:

Clinton1996/Siren: 38.1%
ZuWo/Cathcon: 47.6%
undecided: 14.3%

This is the first A-Bob Research Center poll conducted entirely after Gass3268 has dropped out of the race, and it still predicts a close election. While most voters appear to have made up their minds, there are still a couple of Mideast citizens left who could be convinced to vote either way. Therefore, it seems that the gubernatorial debate which is scheduled for this weekend might play a crucial role in determining the outcome of the election.

Ticino, no question. It's basically Switzerland + mediterranean atmosphere, a combination which I find very charming.
1566  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you feel it ... on: May 01, 2013, 02:31:38 pm
No, at least I'm not aware of it. To be honest, I always thought this is something that only affects old people. Tongue

If the Midwest were full of Maxwells, it would be a much more thriving and interesting place. Endorsed!
1568  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ZuWo and Cathcon: Experience and Leadership on: May 01, 2013, 01:21:03 pm
It ultimately depends on how we define "harm". I know I was vague myself when I used that term but we will have to clarify that if such a bill is debated in the Assembly.
I don't want to pledge whether I will support a bill that hasn't even been drafted yet. In order to make a definite decision I will need to see a concrete proposal. But I can assure you that I will enter a debate dealing with labor relations with an open mind. I'm not paid by any lobby, if anyone wants to know. Wink
1569  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A-Bob Research Center: Mideast Gubernatorial Poll on: May 01, 2013, 07:59:32 am
bump for more votes (a tie is not desirable Wink).
1570  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ZuWo and Cathcon: Experience and Leadership on: May 01, 2013, 04:32:35 am
I am fully aware that strikebreakers can be used solely with the intent to harm striking workers. But since there's also another side of the coin in that certain businesses that are affected by a strike may depend on temporary replacement workers I regard an outright ban the of strikebreakers as too extreme.
As I said, however, I am ready to debate other measures to protect the rights of Mideastern workers. Cathcon and I will approach most issues with an open mind. Wink
1571  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Spamage for Pacific Senate on: May 01, 2013, 04:23:14 am
I endorse you! You did a great job at bringing the Pacific back on track when you were governor so if you have enough time for the game you will make a great senator!

I have done some research on the topic of strikebreakers and have come to the conclusion that I would rather not ban the use of strikebreakers. While strikes are often justified, there are companies which cannot afford to cease their production for an extended period of time and therefore depend on employing other workers during a strike.
However, we could consider adding a clause to the labor relations act which states that temporary workers cannot be required to work during a strike, as is the case in German law. Thus, they can work during a strike if they want to do so, but they don't have to.

It has been a pleasure to work with you and I sincerely hope you can serve the Mideast in this capacity for many more terms. Endorsed!

Excellent, this will be a great help for the Mideast. I love pork. Wink
