This didn't pass, did it Sad

There isn't the majority necessary for passing the amendment through the legislature under whatever rules Hash pushed through; however, we've generally held a rather 'relaxed' opinion on formal legislative procedures here, and those haven't really held sway since - well, since Hash left the legislature.

Aye.

And that should pass it.

Letting people build shacks on land they don't have legal title to is not ultimately a good policy for anyone.

Former IDS Emperor and Secretary of External Affairs SJoyce speaks in Raleigh, North Carolina


Fellow Atlasians,

When Senator Lumine first approached me for this role, I was hesitant. The role of the Vice President has been one that’s seen many different occupants and just as many different styles and approaches to the job over my time here. Nonetheless, after careful consideration, I’ve decided that the potential to make a significant difference in this game isn’t one that can be passed up. And so, I’m here today to proudly announce that I will be running for Vice President alongside Lumine, and to ask for your support of our ticket.

I’m under no illusions that this is the perfect ticket. Both Lumine and myself have some mistakes and losses on our records - hell, we disagree with each other on a number of issues. So why, then, am I here? I’m here because, despite any disagreements and despite any missteps, this ticket and this candidate is one that can make a difference. I see in Lumine someone who’s committed to working to make this game better, someone who’s committed to progress, someone who’s fundamentally committed to a better game. I believe this administration will be one of activity, of engagement, of involvement, and I’m glad to be standing here today in support.

We have many challenges before us. Attempting to maintain the balance we need to have between government and private business for a successful economy, continuing to push against the ongoing threat of climate change, and developing better healthcare, education, and infrastructure for future generations; all these and more are long-term challenges that any new President will face. But I believe a Lumine administration is more than ready for the challenge, and more than willing to work with all other parties to get there. This will be an administration of bold decisions, but it will also be one of consensus and unity.

I look forward to an engaging and energetic campaign, and, if all goes right, an active and productive administration. Thank you all.

-SJoyce

Hopefully our gubernatorial nominee in 2018 if Crist loses. And before someone says she can't win, this would only be after the moderate hero (Crist) lost.

Assuming a Crist loss, my bet would be on someone like Bob Buckhorn or Buddy Dyer, or even Alvin Brown. I'm skeptical of DWS's ability to win statewide.

I'd approve going back to the older system of only appointing a Defender of the Realm if necessary to defend the region.

You can get specific results (in English) from Expressen.

I recall with fondness the days when I led a major political party.

As do I. Still kinda miss the Bloc.

Assuming neither side gets enough for a majority or a stable minority gov't, is there going to be a grand coalition between the Social Democrats and Moderates?
Sweden's not at it yet. It's still pretty much a taboo in this context. So not if they can find any other way of dealing with the situation.

Is there any chance for Löfven to negotiate a coalition agreement with Centre or FP?

^ You're a racist. Really no other term can fit it. It's like a white person saying they'll never date a non-white person.

Eh, pretty sure his position is more like a Swede saying they'd never date a non-Swede (or a Swede that doesn't speak Swedish), or an Italian saying they'd never date a non-Italian, etc. That doesn't make it less objectionable, but it's not strictly race-based either.

Its terrible that the Royal baby news was completely overshadowed by the video of a football player knocking his girlfriend out and dragging her out of the elevator like a caveman.

I, too, am disappointed that a serious national conversation about the NFL's shocking tolerance for domestic violence was not overshadowed by the personal life of a ceremonial figurehead of another country.
96  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: FL: PPP: Crist up 3 on: September 11, 2014, 06:26:39 am
Also interesting that Crist is losing more Democrats than Scott is Republicans.

Conservative Dixiecrats who prefer the crook than the fag.

Plus liberals who can't stand voting for either republican

All 8 of them.

Lyndon's probably right that they're just Dixiecrats, which is to be expected. Not really necessary for him to win statewide - and, given the amount of time he's spending in South Florida, he knows that.

LOL, Griffin is clearly behind this.

I introduced and support this legislation, and am the original author. As a legislator tasked with representing the best interests of the people of this region, I support this legislation to increase involvement in our regional legislative elections and so achieve a more representative democracy. Don't you have water systems to defluoridate or something?

So...... there isn't going to be any polling on this race, will there?

Given how reliable Alaska polling has been in the past, the difference between no polling and polling isn't that much.
