Likely the extremism has made the game inaccessible to some.

Being on the wrong track and being dead are two different things, though I understand why some would try and sell the failings of one Atlasian as a "flaw in the system!!1"

the Mideast is literally dead though. JCL is the only one in the legislature.

Death is irreversible.

I'm incredibly torn. If the worst happens, I think we need some kind of contingency, but on the other hand I don't want to give them an inch and have them take a mile instead...

I'm honestly just looking forward to the gif at the end. I can't believe how much I've moved around the map.

Refortify by moving the maximum number from CO to OK. End turn.

Phew.

Attack Kansas to Colorado.

Attack Pennsylvania to New York to Connecticut, do or die.

Attack Mississippi to Arkansas to Oklahoma. Await further orders.

So, you guys will recall that I used the situation with my cat to, um, "playfully accompany" what I thought was more important news, but it turns out that her health was much worse than we thought, and our family has made the decision to put her down. She's home now and I don't think we have a date yet, but it was kind of spelled out to us as the only solution. Sad

It's just very hard to deal with, because I have so many thoughts racing through my head that you tend to also get with a sick relative. The denial. "Does the vet actually know what he's doing?" "Are they only interested in making money?" "Are we sure there's no other option?" "Why not let her die naturally?" "Couldn't it just pass?"

It's a tough one. Euthanasia throws an interesting wrench into dealing with the emotional aspects of this. I mean, she's laying right here and "looks" fine...

And as silly as it sounds, contemplating the death of a pet who's been by my side for 12 years has made me think a little bit more about mortality in general. A bunch of swollen organs and fluids are going to do her in. It's scary to actually confront the fact that crude matter is the only thing holding us on to life.

Sad

Missouri to Tennessee to North Carolina to South Carolina to Georgia to Florida to Alabama to Mississippi, all in, do or die. Await further orders.

Hmmmm... that's an odd attack, I mean... sure, you've taken away a regional bonus, but left yourself vulnerable as SS can place new armies as easily take your gains away.

It looks like Hagrid's come to the conclusion that he can't afford to concentrate on either SS or Matt and has picked the third of the four options I laid out. The only thing I would disagree with is that unless he was forced to play two sets, I'd have only played one set: Missouri, Delaware, and South Dakota.  He would have had a reasonable chance of getting and holding onto one or both of Louisiana and Texas and getting 2, 4, or even more additional armies if he could turn in a mixed set.  He'd have been taking a slight RISK of getting knocked out before he could use those armies, or of not having enough to keep Matt and SS from getting much in the way of bonus, but deferring 4 armies now in the reasonable expectation of more later would have been worth it.

I know I'm not done my turn yet, but yes, that was one of my dilemmas. I went with the sure thing, and maybe I'll regret it, but ultimately I decided not to hold onto a mitt-full of cards and take my chances as is.

Anyway, my next orders are coming soon, but I have to figure out what direction to do my little loop-around in. Tongue

Congrats, and good luck. This is an important one.

All right. In addition to the three base reinforcements, this gives me 14, for a total of 17. I believe I get another two on Missouri as well.

Please deploy as follows:

3 on Iowa
14 (+2) on Missouri

Iowa to Illinois to Kentucky to West Virginia, all in. If the attack on Illinois somehow gets me down to less than four armies, await further orders.

Iíll have more to do after I get to WV, but please stop here so I can get the lay of the land.

Thanks Joe, and sorry for the delay.

A member of the radical Labor coalition in the senate is pledging to support a terrorist organization, and they wonder why some senators are reluctant to nominate a VP who could potentially rubber-stamp their proposals. Roll Eyes

I have the impression that this is only an attack against Lumine and the Federalist Party in view of the At-Large elections, only for personal matters and for an ideological questions.

Not really. If anything, the blatant partisan attack-fest for electoral gain began with the character assassination of windjammer by a certain Senator (which mind you, managed to break him but not public support for him), followed by last-minute outrage led by a certain party's loose cannon over a bill that hardly anyone on the right bothered to read until it was up for a final vote, later sprinkled with some fake number-crunching and now an overtly-political attempt to deny the majority will of the people in the last election from being preserved - and of course, all of the nasty PM and off-site smearing that is totally going on right now but no one's talking about publicly.

Do you actually believe the sh**t you type, Griffin? You know full-well what happened with windjammer, and to invoke that now frankly proves that you're just talking out your ass to score points. The things said in this thread about Lumine are much worse than anything anyone even hinted at about windjammer, so lay off.

Now for the matter at hand. I'm refraining from commenting on the vote, but it's kind of laughable to accuse members of the right for failing to read the bill when the very person we're talking about nominating for VP admitted that he didn't read it closely enough and changed his vote on the issue multiple times.

I mean, if you're gonna go for low-hanging political fruit, do it right, man Tongue. People know your shtick.

Yes, we did. And I cast a reprehensible vote on the issue. One of the few I regret.

Mark Gerretsen is running for the Liberal nod in Kingston and the Islands. We're losing a good MP in Ted Hsu, but, alas, he supported the wrong candidate for leader.

Gerretsen is objectively terrible. As mayor, he has consistently antagonized students. If the student vote carries any weight, the dynamic could be interesting in October 2015. We hate him, and if he's the Liberal candidate, a lot of young people could go NDP and hand the Conservative the win.
