Furthermore, I neglected to mention that the relevant clause, the Equal Protection Clause, is present, word-for-word, in both the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution and Art. 1, § 3 of the Third Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia.

Didn't he divorce his wife after sleeping with a news host?

But not before appending her name onto his, so his deed would remembered for all time.

Thank you Simfan34 (congratulations for your new office!)

Pt. 1, § 3, cl. 1 is confusing, as it states "Not being an American citizen shall not constitute grounds for termination of employment," as it might seem to apply to all citizens of the nations of the Americas, as it is the only thing I might imagine could be meant by "American citizen". Furthermore, there are many jobs- the government comes to mind- in which citizenship is a necessity.
I fail to understand the problem. I mean, if citizenship is required, how could a non american citizen get the job, and so how could he be fired if he hasn't this job?

What is this "America" you speak of? Surely you mean Atlasia. Tongue

Pt. 2, § 1, cl. 1 is also unhelpful as it suggests the region has no plan to deport illegal immigrants, and furthermore, would accept unanonymous reports. Cl. 3 fails to define what is "close" to an educational institution. Pt. 2, § 2, cl. 1 is in contravention to Atlasian statute- it is the responsibility of the federal government to grant amnesty. Likewise, cl. 2 is also unconstitutional- Social Security is a federal programme.
I fail to understand why you speak about amnesty. Illegal immigration isn't a crime? Is it? They're not criminal. I don't understand the concept of amnesty.
For social security, thanks. I will change this term by hospital or something like that!

Illegal immigration is a crime... hence why it is illegal.

I would like to say I find Pt. 3, § 1 noxious and misguided on a personal level, but that is my own opinion. However, quotas such as established as Pt. 3, § 2, cl. 1 are blatantly unconstitutional as was ruled in Regents of the University of California v. Bakke.
Blantantly unconstitunal? How? The Atlasia Supreme Court isn't the court of vile rightwing like the US Supreme Court you know! And the Atlasia constitution and the US constitution are probably different.

Thanks for your help though Simfan, you will always be welcome in the Althing.
Governor Windjammer

The Regents v. Bakke case had all the judges of the court agree that the erection of racial quotas was illegal, if not constitutional. United States legal precedent applies to Atlasia before 2004, and the unconstitutionality of racial quotas was upheld in Grutter v. Bollinger (the respondent being the incumbent president of my alma mater, I would know this). Mr. Governor, it would be in clear contravention to the constitution to establish a racial quota.

I have some problems with this legislation.

The provision abolishing "All Midwest laws concerning Immigration" is vague and could have unexpected consequences.. It would be helpful to enumerate them.

Pt. 1, § 3, cl. 1 is confusing, as it states "Not being an American citizen shall not constitute grounds for termination of employment," as it might seem to apply to all citizens of the nations of the Americas, as it is the only thing I might imagine could be meant by "American citizen".

Likewise, cl. 2 is also unconstitutional- Social Security is a federal programme.

I hope you find my comments helpful. Smiley

I have access to the Wiki, yes, and update it quite frequently. As Attorney-General I would continue to do so to the best of my ability.

Senator, I am befuddled as to your allegations of illicit activities on the behalf of the President. I know of known and therefore cannot keep them out of the public eye as, as far as I am concerned, there is nothing to conceal. And I shall keep it that way.

38. A good many of these I simply happened to remember their names- who doesn't remember a name like Rumor?-  some were guesses, like "Leone", "Colombo", or "Pella", and at least one was an overt mistake- Dini.

But I had Cavour (obvious), Crispi (we got the bastard!), Orlando (WWI), Mussolini (obvious), Badoglio (untried war criminal gasser), De Gasperi (obvious), Fanfani (was he the one who allied with the neo-Fascists?), Scelba (another one I know nothing about), Leone (guess), Aldo Moro (murdered), Colombo (guess), Andreotti (known), Craxi (known), Cossiga (another one I know nothing about), Amato (guess), Ciampi (President), Dini (misspelling of Fini), Prodi (obvious), D'Alema (meme), Berlusconi (obvious), Monti (obvious), Letta (obvious), and Renzi (obvious).

Last Living California Raisin Dies Of Prostate Cancer



Quote
BEVERLY HILLS, CA—Beebop, the percussionist and last surviving member of the 1980s R&B supergroup The California Raisins, died Thursday following a lengthy battle with prostate cancer, multiple sources confirmed this morning. “With a heavy heart, we announce that beloved recording artist Beebop passed away yesterday surrounded by friends and family, culminating a long and colorful career that spanned music, television, and film,” read a press statement from Rudy Bagaman, the group’s longtime manager. “From his rhythmic accompaniment and backing vocals on the Raisins’ hit ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine,’ to his unforgettable work on numerous broadcast commercials and specials, Beebop’s legacy will endure for generations to come. Our thoughts are with his widow and children at this difficult time.” The California Raisins’ bassist, Stretch, died of liver disease in 2004, while fellow bandmates Red and A.C. famously perished in a Los Angeles nightclub fire in 1998.

Does anybody else feel like Jaime Lannister is being made into a more sympathetic character?  I'm not sure if losing his hand and his travels with Brienne were meant to actually improve him as a person, but some of us will never forget that he pushed Bran Stark out of a window.  Angry

Undoubtedly so, the "love" for which he did it has quite thoroughly dissipated.

I'm just waiting for Daenerys to make her move.

3198  General Politics / International General Discussion / Dutch teenager learns to not make fake terror threats after arrest on: April 14, 2014, 02:05:27 pm
Quote
A 14-year-old Dutch girl who threatened a terrorist attack in a tweet to American Airlines was arrested in Rotterdam on Monday — but that didn't stop a copycat from tweeting a similar threat to another airline.

A Twitter user named "Sarah" wrote on Twitter over the weekend that she was a member of Al Qaeda and that she would "do something really big."

The threat was apparently meant as a joke, but American Airlines wasn't laughing.

The airline tweeted: "Sarah, we take these threats very seriously. Your IP address and details will be forwarded to security and the FBI."

I am honestly able to make so little sense of Nathan's worldview and know so little of it that I'm inclined to go with the person whose behaviour I'd be able to predict, but ultimately whatever Nathan does believe in I'm fairly certain it'd be preferable to John Lindsay, so yeah, him.

As for WalterMitty, the Lindsay admirer would be a strong deterrent but I'm ultimately sure he'd be too garbled and incomprehensible to actually do any harm, so I'll choose Walter.
