1  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: do you support right to work laws on: Today at 04:23:05 am
It's funny to note that this is actually a statist policy - it's quite interventionist to prevent businesses from making contacts with certain types of unions if so they please.

That said, I don't have a problem with state intervention in business if it's addressing something that only the state can - I think it's the lesser of two evils here. I'm opposed to forced union membership. Support.

(I should point out before I'm accused of "Moderate Heroism" or whatever again that unions are one of the issues I've been fairly consistently "right-wing" on...)

No you're perfectly right. I couldn't care less about anything beyond the fact that I have no desire to ever join a union. My sister is a public school teacher and has all sorts of horror stories related to the union. I shouldn't be forced to pay union dues to maintain employment and unions these days have little to offer.

What happens if the Assembly election is certified before we pass this bill? Do we just keep debating it?

The session doesn't end until the new Reps swear in IIRC. But we can always bring it up again.
7  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE2: End Regressive Sales Taxation Act (Debating) on: April 17, 2014, 11:08:00 pm
I oppose the repeal of the sales tax and will vote against this bill. And why shouldn't someone earning less pay the sameamount as someone earning more for the same exact thing? Obviously that is the whole purpose of earning more. And, for a relatable example, I probably have a much more comfortable financial situation than 99.9% of this forum (or country really) yet my personal income is rather modest as a young adult. The poorer person should look for a $400 television and try to get promoted at their company or whatever, earn a raise and buy a better tv when its more affordable for them.

Seeing some Representatives' interest in the bill, I'm going to make and grant motion to extend debate until 11PM on Saturday, April 19. 

Thank you Mr. Speaker.

I'm opposed to the repeal of all portions of the Sbane Windfarm Act. I could perhaps buy into some modifications and see where compromise could be reached. And yeah I hate these omnibus bills. They are hard to debate because so mucb is going on. I don't think we have the permanent activity that requires us to rush through all of these even if some are moribund at this point.

SomebodyWhoExists and Napoleon, what are you guys voting for this troll amendment?? If you oppose the entire bill, just say so (and preferably explain why) and then vote against the final passage...

I oppose repealing the Sbane Windfarm Act and while I initially did as you are suggesting, I edited my post to increase the likelihood of my desired outcome. I'm open to repealing the outdated statutes.

Now, what pissed me off the most about Spade was that he somehow won Fantasy Baseball (which I forgot about this year) every freaking year... like some kind of baseball god! Wink

Showing results for BasedGod. Did you mean baseball god?

I think my favorite aspect of the second kitchen is the absence of a holder for the paper towels.

I don't think HockeyDude's kitchen is featured on a NYC hipster site. And I believe he likes the Eagles, not the Giants.

The sounds of Kermit Gosnell's victims' last moments are more appealing than Nickelback.

Fetuses compose superior music in the womb.
19  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of Nickelback on: April 11, 2014, 12:38:57 am
They actually made good music a decade ago. Now they make stuff that aren't listenable.

But I have to admit, all the Internet hate for them is excessive. Bieber, One Direction, and Nicki Minaj are much much much much much much much much worse.

Nah, Nickelback is still worse. Thanks Canada!

Strange. She got through the worst of the pressure, but resigns now?

She took the hits, now toss her and the baggage. Force Republicans to piss off their constituents by voting for an Obamacare supporter or cause another ted cruz fiasco. Its close enough to the elections and Democrats can say the ACA can be better implemented now.

Is this The List? I'm surprised at Inks' and Torie's inclusion but perhaps an internal revolt against the blue avatar lawyers or whatever is starting to form.

I don't know whether to be offended or flattered by my inclusion.

You should celebrate your inclusion by creating five sock accounts to give yourself extra votes in this poll.
