That wasn't really necessary for the law; the reason I included it was that I saw a study showing lower recidivism rates for sentences including both fines and incarceration, as opposed to either one alone.

No, sorry. I'm in favor of moving almost immediately with Sjoyce's revision. Its nowhere near as pressing anymore, but there's always a risk that Labor will come back and try again.

Nay

Not quite the start I was hoping for.

I guess I'll send Gerrick Kingsblood as an observer.

It does get pretty confusing.

We don't know, it was all very sudden. He certainly didn't warn anyone about it.
87  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / IDS August 2014 Special Election on: August 25, 2014, 12:00:14 am
Voting shall begin immediately for the office of Emperor of the Imperial Dominion of the South.

Voting will last 72 hours, ending on Thursday, August 28th at 1:00:00 EST

A voter's ballot is valid only if the voter:
(1) is registered with the Atlasian Registrar General as a voter of a Southern state during the entire time that the poll is open;
(2) makes only a single post in that election thread;
(3) does not edit or delete the post more than one hour after the post has been made; and
(4) clearly identifies the contest in which a vote is intended to be applied, except when there is only one contest on the ballot.

Emperor:
Write-in: []___________

I guess I need to dust off this old thread. If we need to continue discussion of the current situation the place to do so is here.
90  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Flo for Governor on: August 24, 2014, 10:02:38 pm
I've been PMing people about it. Because of a poorly written statute

Quote
9. Should the Emperor vacate his office for any reason, a special election shall be immediately held to fill the seat for the remainder of the term. The Imperial Speaker shall assume the duties of Emperor on a provisional basis until a citizen of the region is elected to hold the position for the remainder of the term.

I've decided to deal with the "immediately" by giving notice of an election now and holding it a short time after all in the region have been informed.
91  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Office of IDS Emperor Scott on: August 24, 2014, 09:13:00 pm
I know. We're dealing with poorly written statutes here; I'm working on it.
92  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: IDS Fine Act (Debating) on: August 24, 2014, 08:43:33 pm
Less the state and more the local authorities. Most of the money goes to the cities and counties in which they were collected; the worry is that this will encourage overzealous policing to pad city budgets.

I think we're all asking that right now.

I do believe that this is the end; I don't intend to break the peace and it looks like the Greyjoys won't either. All the potential plotters are now either dead or are on-board with the Blackfyres. The horn is secure, meaning dragons can't be used against the new regime. I guess the only other potential conflict starters are the Others, which would have to face dragons and a united Westeros or the Free Cities which couldn't do anything for a whole number of reasons.

If this IS the end I hope everyone will reveal what they were doing and which plots were theirs, I've really been looking forward to finding out.
95  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: IDS Voting Booth: The Bicameral Birthing Amendment of 2014 on: August 22, 2014, 12:17:25 am
Aye
96  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 1: IDS Save our Utilites Act (Amending) on: August 21, 2014, 02:08:22 am
I, for one, am happy to adopt Sjoyce's amendment wholesale and leave the other questions for future bills. Any objections?
97  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: The New Order--Gameplay Thread on: August 21, 2014, 02:06:45 am
Hi, sorry about the timing on this.

Colonial Policy:
The French Government acknowledges the Syrian Republic as an sovereign entity and recognizes the National Bloc the representatives of the Syrian people. We invite National Bloc leaders to Paris to immediately negotiate the end of the French presence in Syria over a time period not longer than 20 years.

Governmental Policy:
As part of an effort to end Parliamentary instability, we invite elements of the Democratic Republican Alliance to join the cabinet with the ministries of War, Justice, and Commerce and Industry, which is hereby renamed the Ministry of Trade.

A controlled budget deficit will be permitted. Two billion francs worth of public works projects will budgeted over the next four years. An additional two billion francs will be allotted for military spending, money which will be primarily used for hurrying the construction of the Maginot Line, which could also be viewed as a public works project, as well as to modernize military equipment.

Monetary Policy:
The franc will be allowed to slowly depreciate at a rate of 10% a year. This will be done in conjunction with a reduction of interest rates.

Foreign Policy:
A French Delegation led by Minister of Trade Flandin will be sent to the London Conference with a broad mandate to negotiate reciprocal tariff reductions and trade deals.

Foreign minister Joseph Paul-Boncour and former Prime Minister Louis Barthou are dispatched to negotiate treaties of trade, friendship and mutual defense with the Soviet Government.

A delegation by led by Minister of State Serre will be sent to the World Disarmament Conference in Geneva.

We reaffirm our commitment to members of the Little Entente and to the stability of Central Europe.

In strongest possible language, we condemn the Japanese decision to leave the League of Nations. The Japanese government must cease its rogue and immoral actions, lest it face the total condemnation of the international community.

Lumine is taking decisions the Senate used to consider non-partisan and adding partisanship? How terrible. Certainly something you'd never do.
99  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: IDS Fine Act (Debating) on: August 18, 2014, 12:10:47 am
Well, from what I understand from things like this and this what currently seems to happen is that a surcharge is granted to the state and the rest goes to local authorities, often to supplement law enforcement and judiciary costs.
100  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 1: IDS Save our Utilites Act (Amending) on: August 16, 2014, 05:30:07 pm
Why not expand cooperative opportunities to provide competition to utilities and utilize that Smart Grid Act we passed two years ago or so as a means to facilitate it. That will eliminate any justification for nationalization.

The justification for nationalization is that a group of dogmatic ideologists want to do so as a stepping stone for total control of the economy; if the current Senate proposal was based on any kind of need or practicality we wouldn't need to be discussing this here. Your suggestion might make practical sense and could be added as an additional amendment or in another bill, but even if it was implemented nationwide it wouldn't stop the radicals in the Senate from pursuing total nationalization, necessitating our own response.
