To be fair, I still don't really see why Obama can do this now when Ohio's congressional delegation was able to prevent it before.

Surely we could have merged some of these? It's hard to tell the differences between some of these. Map 6 and 2, for example, differ only in their allocation of Washington, DC. When you throw in Iowa and Minnesota, we're down to just 4 or 5 different maps, I think. Only three maps don't have what I see as the common characteristic of a "United South".

With sincere intent, honest contrition, and appropriate penance, all can be forgiven.
4  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Bring Back British Rail? on: Today at 03:03:22 pm
Even worse, the government decided (in the early 00s, I think) to split the maintenance of the rails and the actual train services in two "companies" (both largely owned by the government), which leads to extreme miscommunication and both "companies" blaming each other when something goes wrong.

I believe this is required by EU mandate, unfortunately.

I've said elsewhere that I think reconsolidation is probably a good idea, and my opinion hasn't changed.

If NJ Republicans were to sue over the gerrymander, who exactly would be the respondent here? Could Christie or an appointee just choose to either give a poor defence or none at all and get it thrown out?

Teach for Atlasia is, I assume, what we'd call Teach for America here.
10  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: PA1: Pacific Regional Defence and Security Codification Act of 2015 on: Today at 12:05:53 pm
I think this is an important bill to lay out the nature of our security and defence forces in these turbulent times.
11  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: New Zealand's Prime Minister favors changing the flag on: Today at 12:04:47 pm
They all look very "contemporary". Which is not a good thing in a flag. The black fern would have sufficed.
12  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Determining regulations of Constitutional Convention. (Debating) on: Today at 12:02:16 pm
Voting on delegates would simply bog things down. Have the Senate select 10 delegates and the regions select 2 each, with a President of the Convention serving as a tie-breaker. It'd verge of the absurd if we let the organisation of the convention drag on for nearly as long as it took us just to get to this point.

What's needed is radical reform: dissolution of the present legislature, the election of a two-month, caretaker administration, a complete legislative reset, and a completely new and streamlined constitution at the minimum providing for regional consolidation, strong game simulation, and a focus on legislative flexibility and efficiency. Chuck everything out the window and start over-- no mucking about.
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Establishment Strikes Back - Planning Anti-Trump TV Campaign in September on: Today at 11:29:34 am
Excellent news!

Trump isn't exactly short of cash himself.

Does he have the $1-2 billion in liquid cash needed to take him to November 2016? I don't think so. But who will give money to Donald Trump?
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bush campaign releases devastating web ad against Trump on: Today at 11:26:22 am
In normal circumstances, this should be a devastating ad. It probably would be campaign-killing for most candidates. But these-- unfortunately-- are not normal circumstances.

I propose:

Quote
Respecting Canadian Sovereignty Act of 2015

To affirm recognition and respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the nation of Canada.

1. Article V, Section 5 of the Atlasian-Canadian Common Market Agreement is amended to read as follows:

Quote
Atlasian citizens having temporary or permanent residence within Canada, for business purposes or otherwise, shall be permitted to register for federal and regional elections according to their provincial or territorial place of residence, as follows:

a. Atlasian citizens living in Quebec and New Brunswick shall be be registered in the Northeast Region for regional and federal elections.

b. Atlasian citizens living in Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia shall be be registered in the Souther Region for regional and federal elections.

c. Atlasian citizens living in Ontario and Nunavut shall be be registered in the Mideast Region for regional and federal elections.

d. Atlasian citizens living in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and the Northwest Territories shall be be registered in the Midwest Region for regional and federal elections.

e. Atlasian citizens living in British Columbia and the Yukon Territory shall be be registered in the Pacific Region for regional and federal elections.

2. Article V, Section 4 (sic) of the Agreement is amended to read as follows:

Quote
4. 6. While Atlasian citizens living within Canada and Canadian citizens living within Republic of Atlasia shall be bound by the respective laws governing their residence and place of business, nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as weakening Canadian or Atlasian national sovereignty, encroaching on the autonomy of the government of Atlasia or Canada, or stating a territorial or other jurisdictional claim on the territory of either state.

7. It shall be forbidden for any authority in either Atlasia or Canada to issue any document, graph, map, paper, or statement implying or asserting any claim forbidden by the provisions of section 6.

5. 8. Once the agreement has been passed by both the Senate of Atlasia and the Canadian Parliament, the respective bodies in each country responsible for foreign relations shall appoint commissions who shall convene to formulate a uniform border security and anti-terrorism policy for the two countries with respect to their common border. This shall be simulated by the Game Moderator and Secretary of External Affairs, who will thus provide to the Senate the recommendations, which the Senate will then consider as legislation.

3. This Act shall come into force with immediate effect.

There's something very melancholic about that last option.

I'm glad I could capture that feeling, even if I (no longer) fall under it. Smiley
19  Forum Community / Mock Parliment / Re: Conservative Party on: August 31, 2015, 02:53:14 pm
That is in order.

Objections?

In France the standard greeting between a boy and a girl (or two girls) is a kiss on both cheeks. So I guess option 2. Tongue

I mean a real kiss!

As much as I appreciate muon's answer, I would say my own conclusion is it begins at implantation-- which I identify as conception.

That is how a parliamentary party system tends to work, yes.
