Aye.

Seriously, this bill is just a waste of time.  Amendments for other stuff can be put in separate bills or something.  But I am totally sick of joke bills.

We are barely keeping debate going on the five or six serious bills we got up now. If this bill generates discussions and interest, who gives a damn.

Plus my OSPR amendment, and the Primary bill will be off the floor tonight. The Second CIFA will be at vote and the Third one can be tabled if that passes. That means four of the 10 bills currently in the queue will be on the floor by this weekend.

There are other bills that are worth debating that haven't been debated yet.  Entertaining bills like this that have no real intention or generate any constructive debate just wastes time.

That is just frankly impossible. Roll Eyes

Aye:
If it's not too much trouble, I'd like to fulfill a campaign promise:

The National Muffin Act

The national muffin of the Republic of Atlasia shall be the chocolate-chip muffin.
I'm ready to co-sponsor it.
Huzzah!

Let's wait until the important stuff gets done, though.


I thought it would be quick and easy. Therefore I wanted to get it done and over with and off the queue.

Aye.

I don't mind discussing changing the names of the Washington area airports but it's not going back to Reagan and Dulles. Not under my watch. We can just name it National and maybe Northern Virginia international or something. Introduce a bill TJ.

Vote on Motion to Table The National Muffin Act:

Aye (4): Alfred F. Jones, Clarence, Sbane and Scott
Nay (3): ILV, NC Yankee, and TJ in Cleve
Abstain (0):

Didn't Vote (2): Nathan and Pingvin99

With two thirds of those Senators voting, having not voted in the affirmative within the 48 hour time limit, the motion to table has not been adopted.

A motion to table offered on the grounds of "not wanting to expend time on a lower priority", only works if the damn thing passes. For if it does not, the people proposing it become complicit in engaging in advancing the exact opposite of what they claim to desire. They have waisted time and delayed more important things.

Or to put it another way, EPIC FAIL. Tongue

I oppose TJ's amendment, if that's what 'sponsor feedback' is. I have a general dislike of sneaking things into bills when you should really just have the courage to put it as a separate bill.

You responded favorably to the previous amendment, correct? Has that status changed?

It would be funny as hell if you were to respond with an unclear yes or no one word answer to this question Wink

The only ones complicit in wasting time are those who vote against the motion to table.

I would hope that the title of the act is changed, but I am fully supportive of TJ's amendment. I think it was completely sense to change the names of the airports from conservatives Senators on here despised to liberals. This is Atlasia, if anything, the airports should be named after Atlasians.

Actually, that being said, I'd encourage a Senator to instead provide an amendment changing the airports to popular former Presidents, rather than liberals or conservatives people liked. That's a compromise, and would put this long issue to rest.

Senators have 24 hours to object to amendment 48:22:

Quote
The National Muffin Act

The national muffin of the Republic of Atlasia shall be the chocolate-chip blueberry muffin.



A vote is now open on Amendment 48:23:

Quote
The National Muffin Act

1. The national muffin of the Republic of Atlasia shall be the chocolate-chip muffin.

2. F.L. 41-5 is hereby repealed.

Senators, please vote Aye, Nay or Abstain.

Abstain.

Which one are you abstaining to? They are trying to change the names of the airports in Nyman back to Ronald Reagan and Dulles. Please vote against that and we can change them to a neutral one later if you wish.

Also I will be voting Nay on both amendments.

You can't vote nay on both amendments. A vote is only open on Amendment 48:23 which deals with the airpoirts. You can object to Amendment 48:22 to force a vote on it.
