The estimate for the northeast's bill given by then GM Griffin was $6.783 billion, and extrapolating this to the whole country would give roughly 37 and a quarter billion dollars, so about 40 billion should cover everything.
10  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: The Double Jeopardy Is OK...Take Two (Debating) on: April 23, 2014, 10:58:56 am
Double Jeopardy is a critical protection and its preservation is essential to protect people from frivolous prosecution. Not everyone can afford to be in court over and over again and unless there is a real strong proof that the person did it, there shouldn't an exception otherwise.

I agree that double jeopardy is important (and, though this is not really related, I think that a lawyer should be like an education- a good one is provided by the state, free of charge, with costs being recovered in the case of guilt) but I don't think that it should be absolute in the way that the constitution currently makes it. As I said before, I'm open to suggestions although I think most of the safeguards are better suited to legislation as opposed to the constitution.

It seems to me that no one here legitimately objects to double jeopardy on pure philosophical grounds. If someone is acquitted and then it becomes very very obvious that they committed a crime, everyone would support punishing them. Given that, it doesn't seem right that there should be a hard and fast ban on prosecuting someone twice.

I don't care how exactly this amendment is phrased, but it's important we don't tie law enforcement's hand between their back.

Amendment is hostile.

I see your point shua, that we shouldn't be punishing a country which can't afford to prosecute people who cut off the fins, so I wouldn't mind further amendments but there needs to be some sanctions against those who can prosecute, but choose not to.

I don't think the right to be in a public area is absolute. For instance, the pavement is a public space, but if I were to fall asleep across the entrance to a busy shop, I should be moved on. If someone is ruining an area for others, which is certainly possible, the government should be able to stop.

Obviously though, someone who's homeless and sleeping on park benches shouldn't be being constantly moved on. Perhaps the bill should be narrowed so it's only in force at night time (say, 11 till 7:30) and explicitly refers to parks?

The question I'm interested in, is whether atlasia gives the homeless guaranteed accommodation.

ICM have it 52-48 no. Yes leads amongst those born in Scotland.

That's only among those who've decided, it's 42-39 with undecided's included. Either way, independence looks like a definite possibility now.

This was originally X's bill, but I decided to sponsor it because it seemed to address a critical issue. On average, 100 million sharks are killed by humans each year, some species have suffered decreases of 70% in the last 20-30 years, and a quarter of all species are in danger of extinction. This bill is a good first step to solving that problem.

Amendment is friendly.
