Running the game into the ground has always been you people's definition of cool. I don't get it.

Congrats, Thomas.

Me and my guy are still going strong. Spent the last two days together at my place. Went over to a mutual friend's house last night for some drunken tomfoolery. Things are good! Smiley

Of course not. I have honour.

This is Adam Griffin's savviest political decision in a long, long time.

Thanks for your service, DemPGH.

Strongly disapprove.

In case I still need to do this in light of the new nomination, I resign as SoIA.
107  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of President DemPGH (Attacks?) on: October 02, 2014, 10:20:33 pm
I've refrained from launching personal attacks against the president who nominated me to be part of his team, but this is a f-cking embarrassment.

"If there's a problem with that, you don't need to be GM anymore."

Christ, who do you think you are? I've held my tongue for too long. Such incompetence.
108  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of President DemPGH (Peace and Prosperity + SoEA Statement) on: October 02, 2014, 08:27:05 pm
By admission, the "story" about the attacks is designed to "make my life miserable, but will be fun" - I can't share the PM. Well, it's not fun and it's not making my life miserable, and also I have complete control over who is and who is NOT the G.M. Smiley Just a curtesy notice.

There have been no attacks at the White House. We're all fine here.

Thank you!

--The President

While I don't think I would immediately attack the White House to make a statement as GM, it's awfully cavalier to just ignore the person who's supposed to be able to invent events in the game. The position needs to be as close to "God" as possible, and when the president questions the GM (or worse, threatens him), it totally undermines the credibility of the office.

If you didn't have faith in SirNick, you shouldn't have nominated him. We are now bound by his words.

Of course not.  A terrible decision.

Is it possible to have players pass a basic quiz on the rules of the game? Tongue

Of course. Survivor's my favourite.

And damn, is Josh ever a cutie. It's going to get awful when the homophobia comes out though. Usually it's not an issue, but I see it brewing this season.
112  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of President DemPGH (Peace and Prosperity) on: September 30, 2014, 08:19:49 pm
I actually agree with the Labor guys on this. Sure, I hate hifly on gay issues, but being SoEA has nothing to do with that. The nominee, assuming he has the views I think he does, has my potential support as long as the confirmation hearing goes well and he clearly states what he wants to do with the role.

As fun as politicizing everything is, I just don't agree.

So when African countries pass laws criminalizing homosexuality and make it punishable by death, what's our top diplomat going to say? It's very relevant. Atlasia will either be a champion for the rights of everyone, or we won't be. And if our SoEA is not a champion for the rights of everyone at home, why on earth should we expect him to be a champion for the rights of everyone overseas?

114  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Confirmation Hearing: TheCranberry for SoIA (Questioning) on: September 30, 2014, 06:36:33 pm
I'm thankful the president has nominated a person who understands the job and will take it seriously. I lost the spark for it after things began to go downhill... maybe Mr. Cranberry will find it again.

I support the nominee.

Does she really object to burqas, or is she just gullible? Generally, the latter is more common on social media.

She's not gullible. She's a bigot. I've called her out on it before and she's invoked all sorts of nonsense about the need to defend Christianity and blah, blah, blah.

Alternatively you could treat her like a human being instead of a political enemy.

I think she sacrificed that personal privilege when she decided that I'm not entitled to being treated like a human being myself based on something I can't control.

I wouldn't give them the satisfaction of isolation, but I would find every opportunity to mock or humiliate them.

In fact, I'm thinking of volunteering to say grace, just for her benefit:

Dear God,

On this Thanksgiving, we thank you for our friends and family, and for being able to share this opportunity together to celebrate the things and people we love.

Thank you for the food we are about to eat, and for letting us live in a country where we have this luxury; we know that in too many places around the world, people are hungry. We are also thankful for living in a country where everyone is free to express their religious beliefs, free from discrimination based on age, race, gender, or who we love, and free to pursue our dreams as we see fit. Please help each of us give thanks for these things not just on Thanksgiving, but as often as we can.

In Jesus's name we pray,

Amen.

My aunt shared this photo on Facebook. Racist and homophobic nonsense are commonplace on this woman's timeline. I hate it. I don't want my mom to invite her to our Thanksgiving dinner next month. Should she?

PAPOY?

Post A Picture Of Yourself, aka Creepfest 2014, formerly known as "PAPOY 2k14: One of the premier gay hookup websites"

Oh yeah. No change there. The relevant posters made their promiscuity pretty well known even before that.

See, not all of us gays have the luxury of getting married at 21. Or, you know, at all.

You're still wearing FitzGerald shirts, Adam?

I would also recommend exploring your options for SoIA. I will hold the seat until I believe you've found a suitable replacement (unless you want to just fire me), but I'm obviously no longer interested in contributing anything of value.
124  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Right now, how much do you care about the 2016 Presidential election ? on: September 25, 2014, 09:30:50 am
I'm always at least somewhat interested in every upcoming presidential election, but I admit that 2016 isn't shaping up to be too interesting.

The Republican primaries will be a circus, some un-presidential fool will be the nominee, and Hillary will win the general in a landslide. Is this news?

Yes. Afleitch's shirtless photos make it a little bit easier. Cheesy
