I don't see a "General Court Discussion" thread anywhere (maybe I missed it?) and I'd rather not clutter up the case thread that is already cluttered by a silly argument you and Windjammer had.

Also, how was that a hysterical rant? 3 sentences is hardly a rant (I mean, of anyone, I think I'd know what constitutes a rant...), and it was far from hysterical.

I created one in 2009, but it is not stickied and only gets bumped, usually by me, when a case has started, which means that most discussion has already run its course in other places, even the case threads the discussion thread was meant to keep clear.

Well, someone should sticky it then.

Its not officially endorsed. I was not a PPT or even Dean of the Senate when I created it, just a first term regional Senator from the then Dirty South. Some might say I "malaciously" created a place for supreme court discussion to occur outside of case threads. Tongue

Apologies for a drop in activity over the weekend -- it's a very busy time of year at work and school. I'll be looking through these new bills shortly. Smiley

Yea, I kind of had the same just with the former. I planned to spend most of today taking care of stuff on here, but with most of my days off, I ended up spending it asleep and taking care of important real life matters, within the limits that a Sunday allows.

I will be on very limited activity until Friday because of Thanksgiving. To all of my American friends I hope you have a safe and pleasant holiday.

Question: Am I able to vote on bills and amendments proposed before I was sworn in, but are still active?

I assume so, I did when I was a Senator as I joined half way through a session

My citizen opinion is the Senate should confirm Talleyrand for the job of Secretary of Federal Elections. He was assistant to SoFE so he knows elections and is qualified for the role.

I think he applied for it so it shows his interest. It appears other people asked have refused. If Senators have concerns about the nominee due to past behavior, they can ask him what he would do in certain situations they think is open to interpretations and be reassured that way.

This is not a lifelong position. If he does an awful job he can be replaced. If he makes a call that you find unfair, you can go to the Supreme Court. So please Senators, confirm him.

In the Closing election loophole Act in regards to the editing ballot rule, there was a possibility brought up of clarifying the case of posting a ballot less than 20 minutes before the deadline and if the editing period could extend after the closing of the booth. I don't see this addresses in the Act.

Quote
Section 3. Once a ballot has been posted in the voting booth thread, the voter shall have 20 minutes from the posting of the ballot to edit his post as necessary; but no ballot shall be counted as valid which has been edited more than 20 minutes after being posted in the voting booth thread.

I don't see the text makes clear no edit is valid after the voting booth closes.

I've been approached about the Constitutionality of this bill:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=231300.0

The bill passed the Northeast Assembly, but Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution states:

Quote
7.No Region shall, without the Consent of the Senate, maintain Armed Forces in time of Peace.

The National Broadcaster might well be a media to show the Poirot series to the general public. I don't have to explain the cultural importance of this. For this and because there is a role for a national broadcaster, I am against its privatization.

I'm inclined to take your view of the matter, Poirot. I love Nyman Weekly and think Ted does an excellent job running his paper, but there's something to be said for having a media source that is not beholden to market forces.

Shouldn't there be a hearing for the nomination of a new Registrar General? I think the President nominated someone for that position.
