I'm sponsoring this bill on behalf of former governor Dallasfan65, so I'll let him post his argument for this bill. Additionally, I have an amendment for Talleyrand:

I'm a simple man, so I won't demand a country. A year's supply of PBR and sirloin burgers shipped to my fishing boat in Cape Cod will suffice to secure my vote. Wink

I mean, how could you not love the harmony in the chorus of the song?

By listening to it.

Anywho, with regards to the amendment in question:

I believe that a ban on Happy is preferable. However, the court has phorced us to accept Happy, so I phigure the best solution is to establish November 21st (the day Happy came out IIRC) as a day of mourning. RIP to the millions of decibels wasted.

No offense guys, but I'm not sure that we should really be giving counties to freshman representatives who are brand new to the game.

Once you guys are around a few years, you'll get a county. It took me 9 years to get one. Tongue

Well I thank you chaps quite a bit for the honor. I do hope I didn't come off as a bit pompous, but if there is one thing that I am proud of in my time in Atlasia, it's starting the entire movement to create the Northeast Assembly and ensure it's success way back in 2009. Grin

Is this necessary? I thought the court struck down the happy section of the bill, so the rest of the bill is automatically amended like this.

I suppose that's debatable. While the Happy section is, of course, invalid and unenforceable, it would not automatically be expunged from the text of the legislation. See, for example, American states continuing to maintain sodomy bans in their statute eleven years after they were ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

Naturally I have no objections to Barnes having a county, altho I'd prefer if we were to renumber the list, since I sorted it out by eras.

For instance:

Bullmoose/Andrew/Moderate - NLC era
Cinyc/Libertas/Han/Kal - Early assembly era
Scott/Nix/Winfield/Napoleon/Homely/Cinci - Northeast ConCon and end of the JCP era

The rest are post-dissolution. Of course, that being said Cynic and Earl should also probably be in the first era.
