Usually speakers are nominated after the class A elections, but I don't know if any law mandates that or if it's just common practice.

This election made wish that we still had the old preference voting system. Choosing which one to put first was difficult.
It doesn't really matter, since it's just me and Scott on the ballot Smiley . I'm very surprised that no one else declared.

Believe me, especially in the IDS just having the same number of people on the ballot as there are seats is no guarantee that everyone running will be elected.

Well, the Flo democrats seem to become better with their recruits :p.

I don't see how you could infer that from any recent events.

A solid recruiting job in Pasco (Murphy) and in St. Pete (Kriseman), and assuming good recruits in Pinellas (hopefully Justice, probably Sink) and for gov (Crist).

Murphy managed to win a seat in the State House in an off year special election with the backing of the popular former occupant of that seat. Doesn't say much about the state party. FL-13 is going to be a tight race no matter how strong a candidate the Democrats nominate, and I'd never put it past the FL Dems to lose a winnable race. I'll stick by my statement on Crist, he isn't really a Dem recruit,  they're more of a Crist recruit. Kriseman I don't really know the details of, so I don't know if the Dems are being especially competent there.

Well, the Flo democrats seem to become better with their recruits :p.

I don't see how you could infer that from any recent events. The most recent thing happening with the FL Dems (which I forgot to mention at the time) is their leadership engaging in a mini civil war with their house minority leader getting booted by the caucus for trying to be independent from Tant http://www.sunshinestatenews.com/story/darryl-rouson-rejected-next-democratic-leader-florida-house

And I wouldn't really call Charlie Crist a Democratic recruit, more like the opposite. Charlie Crist is recruiting the Democratic party in his attempt to get back into the Governor's mansion.

As she should. I would be much more surprised if the strongest Democrat not already in office in the state WASN'T leading.

So would this allow anyone who has completed a first responder certification course get priority treatment for vaccination? I had to take one when I was a boy scout and there seem to be quite a few professions which shouldn't necessarily get first priority over hospitals whose workers would qualify as certified first responders.
641  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / What is a bigger cause of Atlasia's problems? on: October 14, 2013, 03:21:21 am
With all this rage being vented and accusations being made about what is causing people to leave the game, I thought it would be interesting to see whether people believe that the hateful rhetoric of AdamGriffin (and those like him) or regions edging on moribund are a bigger problem for Atlasia. Let's keep this (mostly) civil, shall we?
642  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Convention for Agreement on Retaining the Current Regions of Atlasia on: October 14, 2013, 03:11:38 am
I, Dereich, publicly oppose regional consolidation.  I understand that the current regional makeup of Atlasia is part of a rich heritage of this country that many citizens wish to see go unchanged.  In the pursuit of protecting our regions and in the spirit of collaboration, I hereby join the Convention for Agreement on Retaining the Current Regions of Atlasia.  I recognize that Article IV, Section 2 lays out the procedures to change the regional boundaries; however, I believe that this should only be done on a small scale, not a large-scale consolidation.  I shall oppose any and all attempts to consolidate the regions of Atlasia.

643  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Our Vaginas, Their Choice on: October 14, 2013, 03:05:57 am
Regardless of your opinion on this measure, does anyone really want the female infanticide mores of India and China to enter this country?  Shouldn't we be doing more than merely condemning it?  

The issue with that line of reasoning is that the issue does not exist within Atlasia (America), even within immigrant populations. If you believe it is the case, then prove it. It is an issue that is relegated to other countries, so why do we need to pass a law for it here? I could support a law (but not this particular one because it wouldn't even be effective) targeting this problem if I was a legislator in India or China. But this is Atlasia, and we should pass laws that are relevant here.

And, to add on to sbane's point, it's incredibly difficult to prove in any context.

We can dance around the issue all we want, but there's no doubt that the two different manners of thinking are such:

1) A woman may have control over her body unless there is an extremely good reason otherwise; and

2) A woman's body may be controlled by the state unless there is an extremely good reason for freedom.

Women don't need to prove their freedom. It is a right. This law in the Mideast, however, balances heavily to the latter situation.

Oh dear lord, are we really getting into this unwinnable debate again? I would be absolutely shocked if you could find ANY pro-life Atlasians whose reason for not supporting abortion is "to control a woman's body". The abortion issue always comes down to what point each individual thinks human life begins. Every point that can be chosen has its own moral and scientific problems, and each person will evaluate these differently. To believe that this is not THE issue of the abortion debate and that it really has to do with freedoms or something is ridiculous.

FO, barely. It could be improved with a more activist Secretary-General in the mold of Hammarskj÷ld and by being given more autonomy how it goes about its business. Having a UN standing army as either the main peacekeeping force or as a supplement to peacekeeping operations would be a good step.

First poll is already out with Baker beating Brandes 24-12 on the GOP side with Latvala in third. Its already outdated however, because Brandes has announced that he's out of the race. Latvala has also announced that he's not running, probably because he wants to continue his unending fight to be Senate president some day.

On the Democratic side Crist sweeps, but with him out Justice leads Ehrlich 20-17.

Velasco wrote the bill. I know who the legislators are. It is not absurd to ask the original sponsor to come in to defend his bill.

Also, my party isn't intent on improving our fortunes using technicalities. All of us should have been more on the ball with the Zanas situation, just for the sake of the region. Not for the sake of "winning Atlasia." I shouldn't be surprised that that's how you measure virtually everything to do with this game, but sometimes blame and cheap jabs don't count for much.

Anyway, yeah. I contacted him the other night to see where he was at with the game. We all want the best here, but it would be good to have a more active legislature.

Don't be such a prick. I'll admit that I didn't pay attention to who sponsored it and assumed you thought Zanas was still a Legislator, since Velasco hasn't been for quite some time. I apologize (I guess, for my inaccurate assumption and attempted clarification).

The rest is pious hot air and is certainly rich to hear, coming from the former leader of Atlasia's zombie-infused, empty-slate conservative party that is designed to win at all costs and the man who helped elect a Emperor that has failed to appoint anyone to replace a vacant seat for the past month. Don't try to spin this blatant neglect into "we care about the game". Change your 'pax, Hagrid.

I've PMed Zanas a few times. He's been an active legislator in the past so I've been willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. I know just as well as you do that he's had IRL troubles and I've been acting under the thought that life problems shouldn't immediately disqualify you from staying in office. Just because I haven't appointed someone to his office doesn't mean I don't care or am not paying attention to the situation. It's a game AG, there is no need for gotchas because someone is having a rough time.
