20RP12- I am very grateful for this bill and your intent behind it... very kind of you

I'd like you to know that it is generally considered improper and potentially against military code for veterans to wear our uniforms outside of military engagements- such as funerals for fallen comrades
Perhaps an alternative would be providing a membership card for a veterans organization, such as the Legion, VFW, AMVETS, VVA- you name it.

Thank you again for this bill!

Thank you for making note of this! I will definitely be rewording the bill.



We have Veterans' Day already.

The month is not a national holiday, just a month dedicated to the service of veterans, but not something that should be observed as a holiday.

I have nothing against pot, but this is one of the stupidest ideas I've ever heard. It's like beating a child in front of a cop. No. I'd lose respect.

As for the practical implications of this bill, I have some doubts about Section 5. In fact, I am not sure whether a government is entitled to oblige private enterprises such as restaurants and movie theaters to offer discounts to a certain group of people even if the intention behind the bill is very noble. This is too much of an infringement on private entrepreneurs in my opinion. Private businesses should decide on their own whether they want to offer discounts to veterans or not.
On the other hand, I would be open to ideas which would offer discounts for veterans at state-funded or state-controlled places or institutions, such as museums or means of public transport.

You're right about this. I didn't really think over that. I'll propose an amendment soon.
11888  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: MA: Amendment to Article III of the Mideast Constitution (Debating) on: July 30, 2012, 08:47:48 am
Since this is a constitutional amendment my opinion does not matter more than the opinion of any other citizen (I can neither sign nor veto this bill since it will be submitted to a popular vote if it passes the Assembly), but I'd like to stress that I am opposed to the amendment. Indeed, the current system has proved to be just fine because it is flexible and activity-dependent; in times of high activity in the region the current wording of the constitution makes sure that we have five Assemblymembers and in times of low activity the Assembly consists of three members. In my opinion, there could not be a better system to deal with the changing dynamics of Atlasia.

This is really what I'm thinking. The current system adheres to an activity limit as well as allowing for the most competitive elections possible.

Yeah.  I don't plan on putting my picture on here again any time soon.

11895  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: MA: Amendment to Article III of the Mideast Constitution (Debating) on: July 29, 2012, 09:05:49 pm
I'm rather on the fence about this amendment. What if there aren't 5 people that run for assembly? The current system seems fine I suppose.
