Kids Shouldn't Die from Preventable Diseases Because of Stupid Yuppies and Religious Nuts Act of 2015

Henceforth, any and all funding transferred from the federal government to regional government for the express purpose of providing access to vaccination shall be transferred only on the condition that the region receiving the funds in question amend any and all laws governing vaccination exemptions providing for 'personal' or 'religious' reasons for exemption. The only suitable exemption (i.e. the only exemption allowed that will qualify regions for federal funds) shall be those allowed for medical purposes only.

Improving Access to Abortion Act of 2015

1. Any hospital or clinic that receives federal funds shall, no later than six months following the passage of this Act, provide, as a condition of receiving said funding, abortion services at the establishment in question to any person seeking them.
2. No hospital or clinic receiving federal funding (as described in Section 1 of this bill) may charge a fee for abortion services at their facility, nor may they turn away anyone seeking an abortion on account of age or marital status.
3. A fund of $TBD shall be set aside effective immediately to advertise the availability of these services via television ads, Internet banners, and other forms of advertising deemed appropriate to convey the message that such services are available by the Department of Internal Affairs. In addition, a portion of these funds must be set aside to develop and distribute teaching materials explicitly confronting social stigmas associated with abortion. These materials must adequately counter unscientific claims that abortion is harmful to women and must be an integrated part of sex education courses around the Republic of Atlasia effective upon the 2015-16 school year.

Is any Senator interested in re-introducing the game moderation abolition amendment that we contemplated a few months ago? I think it's clear that Cynic's efforts to rehabilitate the position have been entirely negated by his successor.

The way this is going to play out, is sooner or later people are going to accept what it means to have a "freakin game god", or the game itself is dead. There is no middle ground, because otherwise you have a bunch of people, bullsh...ting into a vacuum and every election is basically a popularity contest with no dynamic aspect or interaction with a stream of events whatsoever. Basically what we have had, only worse.

Kalwejt was the best Game Moderator this game has ever had, and he was run out of office. Good job guys. So no we are not going to abolish the game moderator. And why don't you find a way to give some purpose to your current job unless you are unintentionally driving it down the same road. Tongue

A Bill

For the purposes of protecting Atlasians from in game repercussions resulting from the arbitrary and uneven  nature of the present forum moderation

Bill Title: This Bill shall be entitled the “Protection of Atlasians from Arbitrary Forum Administration Act”.

Section 1. Definitions
1. Accidentally Banned - Any poster whose account or IP was banned completely unintentionally as a result of trying to ban another poster.
2. Mistakenly Banned - Any poster whose account or IP was banned under the incorrect belief that said person had committed a violation warranting such a ban, but was later proven to have not committed such an act, leading to a restoration of the account.

Section 2. Registration
The following clause shall be inserted as clauses 4 and 5 of the Deregistration of Banned Members Act:
“4.  Any forum member shall have their registration immediately restored whereupon  a member of the Forum administration or moderator team has announced that an accidentally or mistaken ban had occurred.”

“5. The Registrar General, or officer fulfilling the same capacity over the registration and census, shall wait 72 hours, following the announcement by forum administration or moderator staff, of a poster having been banned from the forum before removing said banned Atlasians from the rolls.”

Section 3: Offices
1. Any poster who was accidentally or mistakenly banned by the forum administration shall be immediately restored to the offices which they held, unless the restoration is subsequent to next regularly scheduled election to that office.

2. No appointments shall be made, nor special elections called for vacancies arising from the deregistration of a banned member until the Registrar General, or like officer fulfilling the same capacity over the registration and census, has officially removed from the rolls following the 72 hour waiting period established in Section 2 of this act.

Section 4: Effectiveness
This bill shall go into effect immediately upon its adoption as Federal Statute.

Huh? I singlehandedly talked down a terrorist who was set to destroy half of Atlasia and kill millions in a nuclear holocaust. That alone makes me one of the most significant VPs in Atlasian history.

Keep bandying around your proposal to suspend freedom of speech for the sake of your so-called God, though. I'm sure that's just what this game is missing: illiberal, right-wing religious fanaticism!

There has to be a balancing act with the GM, Nix. But, the GM has to have the freedom to operate and constantly driving them out is only making the position's failure a self-fullfilling prophecy.

I have never called for a suspension of free speech. What I am calling for is the realization of the importance of the GM's independence and the need for him to have the support necessary to get things done. Riley did have a point about their not being enough consequences from the GM for the ridiculous policies in this game. I would much prefer a crazy GM hammering down the crazy legislation with reality, then letting things continue to be roses and daisies, pass whatever you want and it never matters.
