So this fails then, it looks like. No matter, I'll simply reintroduce it into the queue and we can resume debate, since it looks like at least the majority actually wants to pass this bill, they just don't feel entirely comfortable with the version as is proposed.



In TNF's Atlasia, 70% against is a majority for. Things are truly going to rot.

A country stuck between a rock and a hard place; the protesters range from naive "liberal" students to neo-Nazis. The idea that Ukrainians are a separate nation is silly, though.

ugh

A PEOPLE-ORIENTED POLICY
March 12, 2014 - San Francisco

My fellow Atlasians, I have been overjoyed by the news that The People's Party has once again returned to our land, just as I have. What this means is that The People's champions have returned, that this country of ours has had this crucial voice return to the stage. What we are trying to do now is the same thing we have done before- advance the interests of all of The People.

Even though The Party is returning only now, The People have been well-represented in the time before hand. Our last three Presidents, including the present President, Duke, have been amongst The People. Of the last eight presidents, five have been amongst The People. What this means is that The People, all along, have truly been in control. So why, you might ask, is The Party necessary at all? The Party should and must return at this point because the voice of The People cannot remain a whisper! I have heard the whispers in the wind, and so have many others of us who have been amongst The People. But we cannot merely whisper, indeed, we must shout the will of The People from the highest rooftops, the lowest canyons, the meanest streets. The People must be heard anywhere and everywhere!

Some say The Party is left wing, some say it right wing. They are wrong. The Party transcends traditional notions of "right" and "left"- serving The People does not indicate a sort of partisan lean! We stand firmly for choice and liberty, for the right for The People to determine the manner in which they live their lives- and this means choosing whom and how they love, but also the freedom to choose how and where they work. It means freeing The People from the tyranny of both the boss and the foreman, and to exchange one mean regime for another. It means The People must reign supreme.

Thus, The Party supports what advances the welfare and liberty of The People, and opposes what constrains it. I, and all of those in The Party, are at the mere disposal of enforcing and preserving the will of The People- to the ends of the Earth if need be! That is our policy, one fully oriented and focused on The People; not one segment thereof, nor merely those who are in The Party, but all The People.

Thank you, and long live The People!

The bastards must be stopped:

But, while the trucks came to a halt well short of Ukraine's border, a different Russian convoy did make the crossing into Ukrainian territory late on Thursday evening.

The Guardian saw a column of 23 armoured personnel carriers, supported by fuel trucks and other logistics vehicles with official Russian military plates, travelling towards the border near the Russian town of Donetsk about 200km away from Donetsk, Ukraine.

So, the Russians sent 250 white lorries to the Ukraine border with "food" inside. A possible trojan horse, or is it for real ?



Tell them to go back where they came from.

The really interesting thing is that both sources on the right and the left are acknowledging the "militarisation of police" has spiraled to an alarming level. Does anyone think things might things change as a result?
3184  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: St Louis police murder scandal (PLUS: riots, idiotic press conferences, etc.) on: August 14, 2014, 08:24:13 pm
The fact that there have been riots at all, ones in which vandalism and looting have occurred, underlines precisely why the Police need military equipment for dealing with these kind of situations.

The only one rioting here is the police.

This guy is a traitor:



These are the peaceful protestors:

So, Apparently I'm Running for Governor...

When I woke up this morning I had no plans for running for any office in the immediate future. So I was surprised to find that by this afternoon, not only was I the leading candidate to be next Pacific Governor, but I had even been endorsed by outgoing Gov. Cranberry! So things have  gotten off on a rather... unusual start. But I like it! If only all races were like this.

So why vote for me? I plan to stay on the reformist track set by Governor Cranberry. I will continue efforts to grow the region.

Nah, I love eating alone. Bring a good book (preferably on a phone or a tablet or something, because it's easier to read and eat that way) and it's a good time.

You do that? It seems so... wrong.

Either that or Meet the Press. The "Chimes of Death" is what does it.

I'm alone in New York with an increasingly large amount of money from my summer job. The only thing I can think of doing is eating it. My family is abroad. Everyone I know has returned home. Surely I'm useless for falling into such a predicament.

Well, it is still Restaurant Week for two days.

And I've been doing that... even outside of Restaurant Week. Why, just last week I went to "Public", a Michelin-starred restaurant, although I didn't know that until after I had finished... a friend chose. But now that friend is back in Mexico, and the other friend I went with in Las Vegas, so... I can't do this eating alone thing.

Of course if I actually had real expenses I'd be very poor, but I don't pay rent or anything like that so I'm not.

What chapter and verse is that in the NIV version?

Uh I read ESV KJV, or NLT most of the time.

Your Bible-illiteracy disgusts me. Pick up an NRSV next time you go to the Bible store and read the real Bible.

I've also read Holman Christian Standard, The Geneva Bible (the one the reformers used). Why should I read the NRSV? Is that the one where they "politically correctify" the Bible

It is used by the Church.

Disagree with all of them.

On #4, "Agree" is the socon one, or am I misjudging your views?

Whoops. I misread it. I don't believe in divorce unless there is abuse generally. You tripped me up by switching it around with that one.

Yeah, divorce should be banned.

(Well, not really... but at least strictly curtailed)

Comrade TNF, the rules require a 24 hour vote change period for all votes that are not unanimous unless time has expired beforehand and it was started on the eleventh.

Reluctant Nay

As much as I want some kind of altnerative distribution network this is far too complex and whilst bore improved it I think it still contains provisions that will be hard to manage or otherwise problematic and would detract from the benefits of the providing an alternative setup.

For nearly five years now, people like myself have been looking to you, Senator Yankee, for leadership. I find it hard to believe that now, you oppose this bill only "reluctantly". That you feel such towards this utter catastrophe of legislation, that I find difficult for any thinking person to support, much less a self-declared conservative to regard with anything less than total and absolute opposition, is both shocking yet unsurprising. After all, your party, or at least several members of it, chose to hand the presidency to the man who now seems set upon signing this bill into law.

The fact that we are here today facing this predicament, is a heavy mark upon all of us who oppose the propagation, not to mention the implementation, of such complete nonsense as this, and it is a mark strongly made on people like yourself who seem to acquiesce to it. If there is a time to stand up and shout "NO!" I daresay now is that time, particularly for those who have made a name for themselves as leading voices. I understand you are facing challenges, and I wish you well. But that does not mean you must not resist calamities as strongly! Where is your voice?
