1  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Policy Report Act (Voting On Amendment) on: January 25, 2015, 07:36:21 pm
I sent a message to SJoyce but I have not received an answer and also he hasn't posted in this thread.

My apologies, I must have overlooked that - I'm not sure what the purpose of assigning this role to the Vice President would be. More broadly, I can see in theory why it'd be useful to have such a newspaper, but can't see what function it would provide - if the problem is that few people can remember past legislation, I don't see much of a function to the APR barring a 'statute reset' of some kind. Other newspapers already exist (on-and-off and informally) to update the Atlasian public on important legislation that has passed the Senate, and I see it as the duty of anyone who introduces legislation to be conscious of the past legislation that may conflict with or influence their proposals.

But Harris is probably the best the Dems can reasonably do here.

14  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Civil Rights Act of 2014 (Voting on Amendment) on: December 25, 2014, 07:42:07 pm
Just a note: I doubt the ability of Atlasia to honor all treaty obligations with Native Atlasians. For example, the 1785 treaty with the Wyandot would give them half of Cleveland. The vast majority of Clevelanders are not of Native Atlasian ancestry and it seems bizarre to place them under tribal sovereignty. What is the reasoning behind this clause?

18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama to announce sweeping changes in Cuba policy today! on: December 17, 2014, 06:17:38 pm
Does Obama need the approval of Congress to end the embargo or can he just sign an executive order?

Congress has to pass a repeal. Republican Party is clearly not ready for that even though there are many who would be happy to junk it and are public about it.

Even if they were, the Senate Subcommittee it'd have to pass through is chaired by Marco Rubio. So that's not happening.

Anyways, word is that the top choice for the first ambassador to Cuba in over 50 years is a former Florida governor who discussed visiting Cuba during his campaign and was seen visiting the White House five days ago.

Option 1 if you ask me, option 2 if forced to comply to TNF's outlook that any regulation implies option 2.

Platinum was probably the best country album of the year, for whatever that's worth. Apart from that, I agree with smilo that it was generally a weak year in the genre.
22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Governors, The Protecting People from Explosives Amendment has passed the senate on: December 16, 2014, 06:23:39 pm
I'm speaking about wearing dynamites and grenades freely. Not necessary a felon, and that would be dangerous.

What does it mean to "wear dynamites"? Honestly not sure what this means - I've never seen anybody wearing dynamite except as some sort of suicide vest, and presumably suicide bombers aren't too interested in obeying the Constitution.

There is a lobby for guns, so why not a lobby for grenades and dynamite too?

Because very few civilians have any reason to purchase grenades and dynamite? You can't defend your home or self with it while still maintaining some reasonable level of personal safety. Really, you're addressing a problem that doesn't exist.

24  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Article of Impeachment against Vice President SJoyce on: December 14, 2014, 02:05:41 pm
I check this board fairly frequently to see if there's any ties that need to be broken, but apart from that I have no duties here - as in real life much of the VP's informal work seems to be done outside of the confines of the Senate.
25  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Robot Unicorn Polling: Articles of Impeachment Against Pres Lumine & VP SJoyce on: December 13, 2014, 03:05:00 pm
Maybe because our Presidents and Vice-Presidents actually did their jobs and didn't disappear from the Government board for more than a week at a time. I no longer have an agenda, other than one that rains hell down upon people who phone it in while occupying offices others could be holding. If you run for office, do the job. If you can't, then get the hell out of the way and let someone else do it.

Not my fault that legislation (actually, legislation sponsored by your party) has stripped the Vice-Presidency of virtually all of its Constitutional duties. There have been no ties that have needed to be broken and so I am fully fulfilling the duties of my office under the Constitution.
