Looks lovely... I might have to swing by! But of course we all have the same personal business on Sunday. Smiley

Guess I'm going to have to outdo you in the food department!

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

I just hope Trump doesn't turn into some kind of Berlusconi-esque Teflon man.

How do we feel about selecting a Special Convention Chair to move the convention along in such times in this schedule as I'm asleep or in class or club activities IRL? I'd float Xahar for both this position and the job of helping draw up some of the framework for a platform, but I'm not sure if he's actually officially a party member yet or not.

Wonderful. I plan to have a few basic theoretical propositions ready by the opening of the convention which we can use to start debate and start building our platform.

Hi there ! Smiley The schedule seems very promising. Wink

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Maybe we should also think about nominating a Presidential candidate, BTW ?

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

*Sips Champagne*

I would like to give some kind of speech at the convention.  I'll leave it up to the bosses to choose when are where, and such.

*slices Stilton cheese, puts slices on Italian bread* What sort of speech would you like to make, Barnes? I had been thinking that I would give the opening speech myself, but depending on how the plenary sessions go, I should think we should be able to find some time to fit you in.

Oh, something about coming back to Atlasia, what I tried to accomplish as SoIA and how it translates to our platform.  Lots of stuff about the working man. Smiley
