Wormyguy- I find your statement very interesting and well-researched. I would agree if we lived in a more ideal world... if in this world our enemies (if we had them) saw our government as their enemy- I would agree. The reality is- many of our enemies see no difference between our govt and our people. Sure it is repeated often but must be repeated again here- there are those who will strap a bomb to themselves to kill our civilians...becaue they hate our nation and all Atlasians

Now- there is a response to this. You say that these people dont have the means to attack us in a manner which calls for the draft...I agree. However- we simply never know what could happen. The draft isn't to protect government- it's to protect the people. Has it been used improprely? That is up for debate- I happen to have served with men who were drafted who served as honorably as any one else

To protect our citizens from tyranny- it is necessary to have at our disposal all possible options. It's been said the constitution is not a suicide pact- neither is any speech by Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, or any Founding Father. I don't say this because I don't value liberty- I say it because I value liberty and reality...to meet the challenges of today's world requires sacrifices. I've advocated a change in tactics to prioritize drones and airstrikes over ground forces...this would make conscription less necessary, but it must always be an option

Was probably 6- Helen Foster was the girl's name...she later got into drugs and became involved with SDS

I am jealous of your life.

what is SDS?  was that a Reagan space defence system project?
Students for a Democratic Society- organized many of the protests not only against the war but against the troops

My condolences... I can relate very much to this...I became estranged from a very dear member of my family in 1991 and saw him only at his mother's funeral since that time. I respect Torie's advice and I wish I could take that attitude- I never met my father and maybe because of that the thought of having family out there who I haven'tspoken to in years pains me every day...

I tell this to every young person I meet- the only way to have zero chance at success is not to try... you tried, you put in the effort, and you came close- I hope you are very proud of yourself and you will have many future victories that this will be forgotten.
2234  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Amendment to Discourage Small Type Use (Debating) on: May 24, 2012, 11:52:32 am
I agree with Ben's amendment and propose the following...

Resolution to Discourage Small Type Use

Findings-
Copying and pasting small type into the bar is far more difficult then highlighting white type- which achieves the same purpose

Resolution-
The AARP- Atlasian Association of ReallyOld Persons- humbly requests that users take into account our aged and tired eyes by not using small type

I deem Ben's amendment friendly... that sounds good to me

NC Yankee- the "nipple rings" section is in jest...how about if I amend to a resolution kindly asking folks not to use below 5 point type?

White type is far better then small type... small type is a pain in the ass. It also rarely hides funny remarks... two examples above show that :-PP

Except when it's white type at the end of a sentence, when unless the sentence is obviously cut off, it's really not that effective, since people may not even notice it's there, unlike small time, which is evident due to there actually being something. White type may be easier to read, but small type is easier to notice. See my point about the end of sentences?
Gray then...

Nay
2246  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Pregnant Women Support Act (Debating) on: May 23, 2012, 01:28:05 pm
Sbane- I appreciate your feedback and I am glad to see that we aren't too far off from each other here... however I will not consider that amendment friendly as I believe information about how the procedure is performed and alternatives are crucial for women to know...and also defining child as including the unborn can help a woman obtain greater insurance benefits during her pregnancy

As I said- I'm very happy with this budget particularly commitment to veterans...I was considering moving to take out the funding for broadcaster but that would get me no where and frankly the good far outweighs the bad here...I look forward to seeing BigDaddyPA's proposals

For Simfan to be able to run for it- I propose a vote of no confidence for "Vice Chairman Vacancy"

No worries Jmfcst...I knew it was meant to be lighthearted....I sincerely appreciate your understanding

did you serve in Vietnam?  if so, when and where?  my pastor served in Cu Chi in the Army's 25th ID for 13 months.
Yes- I remember you telling me about that...Hell's Half Acre they call it
I did serve in Vietnam with the Seabees- went first in 65 and I was there at the start of Dong Xoai- count my lucky stars every day to have had the Army boys with me...served mostly along the coastline with various naval construction battalions- spent some time in Quang Tri and later in Da Nang... second tour was on a civic action team and went inland to build schoolhouses and civic structures for many of the villages the VC ravaged...
