Compaore has fled to Senegal.

As per?

Call it a coup or call it a revolution, but the Burkinabe military  has dissolved Parliament, declared martial law, and is forming a transitional government; it appears Comapore is no longer in charge.

My bet: we will be disappointed.

Burkinabes are rioting to "disinfect themselves" of Blaise Compaore's 27-year rule, after a proposal to allow him to run again, and parliament was set ablaze:

Most things are obsurd, saying that she is too liberal is laughable. Politico is a joke.

...oh dear, they think she's simultaneously too pro-Obama and not pro-Obama enough! Truly obsurd!

P.Kemp is right. The only other person I can think of (off-hand) to say something similar to this is Bill Cosby. We can't possibly be talking about taking the opinions of two affluent black men more seriously than the opinions of white people solely because they're black. In some ways, being black and affluent can result in just as significant a lack of knowledge on this topic as being white in general can.

Yikes...

Go into any inner-city neighborhood, and folks will tell you that government alone can't teach kids to learn.

They know that parents have to teach, that children can't achieve unless we raise their expectations and turn off the television sets and eradicate the slander that says a black youth with a book is acting white. They know those things.

I'm always amused by the white people on here who seem to believe they can determine what opinions black people ought to hold about black people.

I don't think Coakley has had one local newspaper endorsement in Mass. yet. Baker has The Lowell Sun, The Patriot Ledger, The Boston Herald, and The Standard-Times, all liberal papers except for the Herald. Coakley probably has the Boston Globe endorsement though, I highly doubt they would ever endorse a Republican...

And they did!

This has to be one of the stupidest things I've ever seen any Atlasian do.

Bmotley once made a sock which had bmotley as the e-mail address.

I am laughing my ass off after reading this. This is not your average dumb. This is a whole new level of dumb.
Can you link me the profile?
Says the obvious simfan sock

I am suing you for slander.

Actually, when looking for the political future of Brazil, the economic debate will be hugely important, because Dilma swears she'll double down on the economic fundamentals that are making the economy tumble.

Thankfully it's the voters, and not the stock markets, who resolved this debate.

Ugh.

Not bad, but the saltire seems... crooked.

It's called a half-saltire and was added instead of a full one because not having the saltire go to each corner looks better and is more unique.

Mehh....

Spamage wins, obviously. Congratulations.

16  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Abolish The Pacific: a four-region plan that might be crazy enough to work on: October 26, 2014, 02:09:55 pm
Are you guys really still working on this? lol

Not having a Western-based region is silly. The Midwest/Mideast is obviously the least natural split.

Idk nobody has talked about this in ages but I like the idea.

I agree not having a western region is silly but having a western region featuring Generalissimo Simfan as the entirety of the regional government is arguably even sillier, and those appear to be our only two options right now

What is this supposed to mean? You want to abolish the region for the mere purpose of forcing me out of office? This is absurd.

Ebola would have never even started if Mitt Romney were President.

Are you serious?

Simfan, open a vote.

Who are you?

The vote is opened.

RIP LIEF. Sad

They already had the President send us an email- did you get it?

RIP US. Cry

There's only one sentence for treason. Sadly Atlasians have taken that option off the table.

Huh
