A diplomat of an oppressive regime that has slaughtered thousands of innocent people. Remember the FF yelled "remember Aleppo!"

This could possibly be in the top 5 worst posts I've ever seen on this site.

Killer Mike is one of the greatest rappers alive right now, and an incredibly important political voice.

114  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Northern Assembly Legislation Introduction Thread on: January 05, 2017, 07:19:33 pm
A few more for you.

Quote
Voter Integrity Act

I. One must be a citizen in the North for ten days before becoming eligible to vote in the elections of that region.

Now if we can just get the North on board...

Sure thing.

Quote
Regional Name Act

I. Upon the passage of this bill, either the Governor or a member of the Assembly must open a thread in which citizens can nominate a name for this region besides "North". After ten names have been nominated or 72 hours (whichever comes last), the thread will be locked and the Northern Assembly, along with the Governor and Senators and Representatives from the North, will chose three names to appear as a ballot measure during the next Northern Assembly elections.

I'm not done yet.

Sponsored x2.

24 hrs to nominate someone.

I will accept the nomination should it be offered.

120  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: N306 - Northern Soda Regulation Act on: January 04, 2017, 10:42:21 pm
I believe that this soda tax bill is adverse to the interests of this region's low-income residents.

Now we're getting somewhere. Perhaps it's better to deter low-income residents from drinking soda, though, because of its ill health effects? It's not exactly rocket science to figure out why obesity is such a problem with lower income folks; unhealthy food and beverages are cheaper. What ever happened to just drinking good old-fashioned H2O?
121  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: N306 - Northern Soda Regulation Act on: January 04, 2017, 04:23:10 pm
Based on what's in the bill, I am going to vote NAY on this bill.

Care to explain why?

Why I will vote NAY: I am opposed to soda taxes on principle.

And...why is that? I'm looking for constructive criticism, not "I will vote nay."



I have an issue with this bill, specifically the third clause. I'm all for promoting healthy habits, but banning certain purchases seems unnecessary. How would they be enforced? Perhaps a larger tax on those purchases would be more effective or generate more revenue.

And JGibson could explain his position a little better than "principle".

I'll offer an amendment:

Quote
Northern Soda Regulation Act

I. This legislation shall go into effect on May 1st, 2017.

II. A tax of 10% shall be levied against soda purchased in supermarkets, restaurants, gas stations, or any other licensed retail outlet where soda is sold in the Northern Region.

III. Purchases of greater than sixty-four (64) fluid ounces or a single two (2) liter bottle of soda in one purchase shall be subject to a tax of 15%.

IV. Funds raised from this project shall be used to fund public education and health projects, particularly programs in schools dedicated to healthy eating habits.

BTW, if I had to pick a nickname for a member of Congress, I'd go with Debbie Wasserman-Schultz of Florida...."Debbie Dumbass" or "Debbie 'Duh"!!

And for governors, I like to call Jerry Brown of California "Moonbat Brown", and Dan Malloy of Connecticut "Moron Malloy".  ROFL!! Wink

I really hope your life goal isn't to become a stand-up comedian.
