Thank you. A comprehensive plan forward will be announced later today, but first let me announce that CJO Ebowed is immediately relieved of his duties and not reappointed, as per the constitution, which places the reappointment window as the 10 days following the scheduled June election on June 12. A replacement shall be announced forthwith.

Edit: added date...

If a landlord makes more than $49,500 in rental income, he makes more than $49,500 in rental income.  Ditto for investment income.  Ditto for someone who holds two jobs, getting paid the alleged maximum in both.  The federal government will tax the amount of income he actually received, not whatever the Pacific decrees he should have received.

I don't see what's unclear.  Any income earned past 49,501 cannot be kept by the worker.  It does not therefore make sense to work "two jobs."  Attempting to keep the income earned from working "two jobs" is illegal under Pacific law.

Someone who makes $30,000 might find it advantageous to find another job that pays her an additional amount.  Suppose that is $30,000.  She makes $60,000 for federal purposes.  Your attempt to steal $10,500 for making "too much money" isn't recognized by the federal government. 

Suppose someone sells their house for $500,000 while holding a job making $49,500.  He would have $549,500 in income for federal purposes, and would have to pay tax on that amount.  But the Pacific is stealing $500,000 from him.  How can he pay his federal tax bill?

It's too bad I'm not the GM.  Stupid laws like this would have real-world consequences.  The economy of the Pacific would crater as smart people move out of the region.  Silicon Valley would become a ghost town as people move to Texas.  And the Pacific would be left with high unemployment and lower tax revenues to match this brain drain.



Applies to literally everyone else here.

Mr CJO, I request you cease and desist this activity immediately.

The fundamental problem here is that literally no one took notice of the fact that we had an election scheduled. Putting up the notice slipped the mind, but curiously no one objected. If the CJO wants to rule by decree I applaud him for at least getting things done. You can't have a government function if only 1-2 people are actually bothering to engage. And it's not like I haven't tried to draw in more people, but between other regions and federal appointments all the leading Pacificans have been drawn out instead.

Ins't a major problem the fact the Governor didn't post anything for about 3 weeks?

It would be if that was actually the case.

Furthermore the backlog of gubernatorially-introducuced legislation hitherto ignored by the former Speaker deserves notice.

Transracial makes more sense than transgender, honestly.

But it's less real.

Only feels are real.

Like the feels that make trans people kill themselves? The ones caused by people like you?

The fact that mentally unstable people act unstably is unfortunate, but I don't see how it makes their cause somehow a noblesse oblige. Depressed people kill themselves. Grad students kill themselves. Religious extremists kill themselves. People do terrible, selfish things for all manner of reasons.

Some are willing to die to tear down the immutability of morality and objective reality to establish a world where identity and truth exists from moment-to-moment on your own selfish feelings, whims, and wishes. They are not martyrs. They are extremists, and people are too afraid to offend anyone that they decide to placate them instead.

Bravo! Truly excellent. Bravo.

Some of us have moral qualms with first-preferencing Labor... even if the candidate is perfectly sensible!

No/No.

I don't believe in the death penalty, but I wouldn't lose sleep over it happening to him.

But, it's South Carolina and he is a White who killed Black people. He will surely find at least one sympathetic juror to him.

This, most probably.

Maybe this will be the start of French style "overseas constituencies".

Gibraltar is far too small to be a constituency, no?

Na h-Eileanan an Iar had a population of 27,684 at the 2011 census.

Gibraltar's population was estimated at 29,752 in 2011.

Really? Didn't know that it was that small.

It's just extraordinarily hilarious seeing the rhetorical knots liberals are tying themselves into over this.

Ugh, why not Jackson? If we're going to be changing things why not just redesign them entirely?

Hamilton was perhaps the best of all the Founding Fathers.

Yup. It was meant tongue and cheek of course. The Dems will enjoy watching the other Pub candidates having to deal with this loose cannon.

Impressive, I have to say.

I just don't believe that the left's backing of transgenderism is based on brain scans and I think it's disingenuous to claim that it is.

No, what is disingenuous is trying to argue transracial and transgenderism are similar. It is a complete straw man and fail attempt at "gotcha" by opponents against transgenderism.

That's the problem. People attacking transracialism aren't even really attacking transracialism. They are attacking what they imagine are right-wingers with a hidden agenda making the argument. Yes, some right-wingers are doing that but just because their reasons for making the argument are crappy doesn't he argument itself is crappy.

By attacking transracialism, which is so painfully obviously analogous to transgenderism, liberals only make themselves look stupid and illogical.

It would be better to just admit, yes, they are very similar. They are similar like the right says, but they aren't bad like the right says. They are harmless. Let people do whatever they want.

Why not the converse?

Thankfully she's not running for President of Austria.

Either they know she's a secret Republican or she needs some Merkel-like photos to surface.

What kind of "Merkel-like photos" do you mean? Although I think it's hilarious that Merkel is more popular than any Austrian politician mentioned. Maybe time to hold another vote on Anschluss?
