Finnegan's Wake is a book with a continuing plotline, I would be very confused reading Obamanation's posting history with no context, it would be very confusing.

That doesn't change that the Twilight series has more literary value than Finnegans Wake.

Neither Meyer nor Joyce won the Nobel Prize, so they've got that in common?

Alfred, would you ever fight for legislation advocating a restart?

Sure. It might be fun.

Do we get to pick the issue?

What policies do you think are neglected? Banning homosexuality and instituting a flat tax because Exodus said so?
1680  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: North Star Polls - Special Senate Election on: March 27, 2014, 08:25:14 pm
Myself.

And Maxwell, I'd just like to ask why you preference JCL over me or Simfan or Poirot?
1681  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Poirot for at large special on: March 27, 2014, 08:24:09 pm
I support your support for research and space program funding, though I'm not sure why a reduction in Senators' terms would be needed - for one, it shakes up our every-two-month system.

What are your views on ducks?

They are good, especially their corkscrew penes.

This is the exact same way the past three conventions have looked.

Beaten it twice.

 you. I'm still savoring the high from the first time I beat it and can never get past 1024 anymore.

If you've already stated this I'm sorry to bother you again, but what's your position on group marriage and why?

I'd like to thank Atlasia's two most beautiful men for their endorsements, and I'd also like to remind the both of them that the bed is kept heated by white tears if they'd like to come join me Wink.

Since I assume your tax plan would reduce revenue, what would you cut to make up for it?
1688  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Based God Quick Polling: At-Large Senate Seat on: March 26, 2014, 11:23:21 pm


Thank you for this picture as well as the endorsement.

Cheesy I've been saving it for the appropriate time!

Aw, now you've gone and gotten me all moist Smiley.
1689  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: 2014 Selfie Creepfest/Post a picture of yourself thread on: March 26, 2014, 10:03:19 pm

Oh I was talking about you.

...and this just got awkward I'll leave now

The one who doesn't have a nasty penchant for sockpuppetry.

Weren't you one of the people advocating for Simfan's return?

Returning to the forum =/= endorsement for Senator in Atlasia

Fair enough, I wasn't saying you should be endorsing, but I also wasn't expecting the snark. But then again, I forgot who I was talking to Tongue



Thank you for this picture as well as the endorsement.

Your points ring true, and I do think the law could and would be exploited by lazy workers (mainly the multiple layoffs not affecting severance pay bit). I like clause 2 though, however I think the $25,000 figure should be reduced for smaller businesses or perhaps turned into a percentage fine so as to affect all businesses equally.
1697  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Alfred 5 Senate: People Over Politics But Below Money: Ask Me Literally Anything on: March 26, 2014, 06:00:36 pm
I like most of the Bill of Rights Act, but I think life imprisonment without parole should be an option (as well as solitary confinement, but only under very extreme circumstances and not for extended periods of time). In addition, we're still working on co-determination at the legal level IIRC, so such hasty action should not be rushed into at this time.

I'm sure all those useless laws are useless, but I don't particularly care about that bill.

I quite dislike the RAPH Act's benefit reductions and restrictions on unions (which Scott pointed out is unconstitutional), but I'd have to look into health savings accounts to see if they're beneficial. As it is I'd strongly oppose the bill.

I support the resolution on the Crimean crisis; Russia's actions are illegitimate, and Crimea is and should be part of Ukraine. TNF's spouting of Russian talking points are of no concern to me.

I'm not sure what to think on the Residential Tax Something-or-other Act, though the points raised against it do seem fair vis-a-vis renters and other people who don't own homes. Also, "principal" is misspelled in the first clause, which could have severe consequences.

I suppose the Contract Modernization and Blah Blah Blah Act of Whatever is OK, though clause 2 seems a bit semantically weird (it seems to imply that freshman members of a union will get the right to submit the first contract, which doesn't seem like the thing TNF would really go for). Furthermore, I think the job of unions (and government in general) is to level the playing field, not to tip it in their own favor, which seems to be Mr. Senator TNF's goal.

But enough about TNF. I was 5 when that video came out and don't remember 9/11 at all. Does that make you feel old?
1698  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Alfred 5 Senate: People Over Politics But Below Money: Ask Me Literally Anything on: March 26, 2014, 05:26:55 pm
Thank you, I'd suggest a debate but we have barely a day left. I recommend we use the time to badger each other. Tongue

Badger badger badger badger MUSHROOM MUSHROOM

Mr. Jones, would you be willing to defy the Labor Party line on legislation you opposed? Could you possibly tell us some recent legislation proposed by members of your party you oppose or are you in full concurrence with the Socialist orientation of the party as stated in the most recent Party manifesto?

While I do consider myself a social democrat at the very least, I only venture into true, TNF-style socialism on my most liberal days. And yes, I would be willing to turn around and punch Labor in the face if it did something I opposed, but I would immediately apologize (I opposed TNF's original draft of the platform, but I support the current version). On to the bills:

Not sure what to think on the Queue Sanity Amendment; I'd have to wade in the thick of the Senate before I could get a feel of how the rule changes would really affect our boys on the ground in there.

I oppose the An Actual End To Imperialism Act. Though it is good in theory, and I support its military spending reductions (the extent of such reductions would have to be run past Griffin or whoever our Defense Secretary equivalent is), but I dislike the heavy sanctions on Israel as I do not believe that is the best way to move forward in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process at this time and I oppose clause 4 (the abolition of all military bases - we need some bases in places like South Korea) and clause 2 (sometimes, like in Libya, governments are undemocratic/authoritarian/what have you and need to be thrown out, and if Atlasian help is needed it should not be denied). I'm not a knee-jerk isolationist, and I dislike them severely.

I'll add the rest of the bills in queue later, but I have responsibilities right now.

My dear friend, where have I gone wayward?

Cum hoc ergo propter hoc (or is it post hoc ergo propter hoc? I can never tell the two apart), my friend.
