Don't support, but that this of all things has come up provides hope for us prudes that we're beginning to run out of things to legalise.

Let's hope the building collapses on them!

It would indeed be fitting and ironic if the uneducated far left degenerates got smashed by the buildings they themselves vandalised.

An Anarchist cannot be uneducated, unless of course, they are an An-Cap.

Aren't you in middle school?
Where the hell did you get that idea?

No, but "pro-white" or "anti-white discrimination" is a codeword for racist.

Official Atlasia Supreme Court Release
Nyman, DC

Notice of Dismissal

After consideration of the petitioner's arguments, the Supreme Court of Atlasia has declined to grant certiorari to hear the question of whether the passage of a constitutional amendment with six votes in favour was in violation of the Constitution of Atlasia.

We see no reason that this matter cannot be addressed internally, as outlined by the Speaker, and the Court would prefer that questions of Senate procedure be handled internally unless there is a clear and compelling wider public interest and a clear conflict relating to the constitutional particulars. In this instance, we see no compelling reason for the Court to intervene as opposed to a resolution to the issue enacted under the auspices of the office of Speaker.

The case is dismissed.

19  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Efficient Referenda Amendment (Passed) on: January 29, 2015, 08:25:02 am
Aye

That interpretation bore is contrary to past interpretations regarding abstentions and the effect. The basic understanding was that you needed 2/3rds and if you are denied the two-thirds it has not passed the Senate.

Perhaps, but it's not contrary to my interpretation of the constitution, and, as speaker, I have to interpret the rules and guidelines in the way I believe them to be written. If other senators disagree, which I think they clearly do, then we will all follow the court's interpretation.
20  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Efficient Referenda Amendment (Passed) on: January 28, 2015, 06:44:30 pm
Nay

Don't worry windjammer, there are no hard feelings, and i completely understand why you are doing this.

Basically I would not have done this if the vote was 5-3 and Bacon King then voted after the deadline, because then the bill has failed because the vote was not at the right time. I am doing this on the advice of the supreme court to avoid a legal debate over whether a 2/3rds majority of voting senators or a 2/3rds majority of all sitting senators  is needed to pass an amendment. I think it is a majority of voting senators because of what I believe the constitution says and what I think is the most equitable solution, the one our founders will have intended, namely that given this reading, abstentions are not no votes by another name but actual abstentions.
21  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Efficient Referenda Amendment (Passed) on: January 28, 2015, 06:29:26 pm
Good point. Aye is overriding the speaker's decision
22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Efficient Referenda Amendment (Voting on Speaker's Decision) on: January 28, 2015, 06:12:44 pm
Since senator windjammer has objected a vote is now open on whether to override the speaker, 1/3rd of the vote is needed to do so. Senators may vote aye nay or abstain
23  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Efficient Referenda Amendment (Passed) on: January 28, 2015, 05:56:07 pm
Using the powers to suspend the rules granted to me by the senate rules, I hereby count Bacon King's vote as valid and declare this amendment to have passed 7-1
24  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Windjammer vs Speaker bore on: January 28, 2015, 05:55:16 pm
I thank the court for their decision and will follow their suggestion.
25  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Amendment to the Senate Rules (Voting on Amendment) on: January 28, 2015, 03:56:07 pm
Nay
