101  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SB 2016-058 - The Indigenous People's Day Act (Debating) on: March 07, 2017, 01:28:16 pm
     Does anyone have anything else to say about this? If not, I think I will draft an amendment along the lines I suggested.

I would like to see a proposal similar to what the President proposed. I could draft an amendment in that vein.

     No October holiday and Election Day as a holiday instead? I could get behind that as an amendment.

Sure. I'll try drafting something up tonight, but I'm pretty busy for most of the day. It'll definitely get done by tomorrow, though.

On the work hours for students, I empathize with the need to focus on school, but there's some families that really need the money to survive and I lean toward giving them the right to do that, which I think is more important than their education (sadly).

Is there legislation that makes attendance compulsory for high school students?

The cities of Philadelphia, Lancaster, and Pittsburgh are the only things that prevent PA from being, say, Iowa or Indiana.
105  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Harding for Northern Assembly- Campaign Office on: March 07, 2017, 08:50:17 am
Never in my lengthy career of Atlasian public service have I ever spoken out against a candidate for any office, or openly condemned their campaign...

But you cannot and will not be elected to the Assembly. The Assembly is a highly esteemed and hardworking body of individuals who seek to make the region better for all, not for a select few. I echo Senator Scott's comments that you will be nothing but an impedance to that goal. At best, you should be relegated to an outsider whose influence in our political process is equivalent to that of a walnut's.

I will work tirelessly to prevent your election to any office in this region, or any other region in Atlasia.

The fact people here trust Mattis with anything is scary.

You seem to admire the man who trusted him to run the Department of Defense.

I treat women very respectfully

Giving them water and crackers while they're in your rape dungeon doesn't count.

My rape dungeon is only a myth, created by some weird Atlas posters.

You mean the ones that don't post about the percentage of Austrian women who are still virgins?

Southern Gothic,

What are your plans to revamp the SoIA position? As a former SoIA myself, I found it challenging to handle some of the responsibilities and pressures of the position, and subsequent members often fell inactive in the position. What do you plan to bring to the table to prevent that from happening again?

The past 24 hours were some of the best of my life.

Care to elaborate?

Yesterday, I had VIP tickets to see Dance Gavin Dance, Chon, Eidola, and Vasudeva in Lancaster, and that show was absolutely mindblowing. It was the first time I'd ever seen Dance Gavin Dance, and I got to meet them as well. Afterwards, my girlfriend picked me up and slept over, which is always a super nice feeling. I just felt so full of love the whole night and every morning that I wake up next to her, I'm so happy.
110  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: cinyc vs. Northern Region (Lincoln) on: March 06, 2017, 11:14:32 am
For Both Sides:
1. What counts as a valid "requirement for activity that may have been established by law"?
2. Are there any activity requirements that are permissible to be enacted by the federal government but not by a regional government, or vice-versa?

1. I believe this is up to the interpretation of the regions, and if they choose to abide by the federal law or make their own regional law. Lincoln believes that extending the deadline by just three extra days will not impede anyone from voting, lest they have had a plan to influence the swing of power in the region to begin with.

2. This is also an interpretive issue. If a region chooses to have activity requirements that are more or less strict than federal law, they should be allowed to do so. I don't believe we would be having a case if a region decided to lower their registration deadline to 5 days instead of 7. We are only here because we increased our registration deadline as a preventative measure against carpetbagging.

Thank you, Justices. I'm more than happy to answer any further questions.

RL was loco so I ended up missing the leftist going the "sky is falling" after Trump won.

Who?

I missed the reactions from the Atlas left to Trump winning.

Who's Trump? What did that person win?

He owns a business in Atlasia, but he didn't win anything iirc

Ah yes, that Trump. Isn't he a generally mean-spirited person? What would he ever win?

Indeed, I prefer getting rid of the holiday completely and making Election day(s) a federal holiday instead.

I would support this.
