I've become weary of bills that don't have a serious intent, so I'm probably going to vote against this.

I think we need a muffin as a symbol of our Republic, because muffins are the best food in existence, and so they are a fitting emblem for Atlasia. QED. BTW, I believe Pingvin is a co-sponsor.

I'm perfectly fine with that amendment.

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.

ILV, I'm perfectly fine with that amendment. I would prefer chocolate-chip, but all muffins are delicious.

I second this motion. Seriously, let's talk about the FPR.

This has nothing to do with the FPR. If it doesn't need a slot it will be up by tonight. If it does, it will be brought up in the Foreign Policy Slot when the Afghan bill is done.

Amendment consideration and debate is halted until the tabling motion is dispensed with.

A motion to table has been entered and is so noted. The motion to table requires the seconding of another Senator. Two senators have seconded the motion and therefore a vote is now open on the and consideration of the motion is now before the floor. Senators please vote, Aye, Nay, or Abstain.

Nay

This is absolutely ridiculous.

Agreed Scott- this is why people complain about the Fantasy board I believe...

Atlasia is in trouble and I highly doubt it is because I introduced a Cheeseburger Bill back in Decmeber or because Alfred wants to eat muffins all day long. It is hardly a major concern comparatively.

And if this fails, you tablers can then take credit for causing this bill to be on the floor two days longer then it otherwise would have been. Tongue

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.

Aye

Ben has put forward a great topic for discussion about foreign policy which I have sponsored...ilikeverin put forward an amendment... I see no reason why this bill should be given any time at all. I like muffins as much as the next fat man but the joy many of us get here is discussing policies not flavor preferences

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.

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

None of which will be in this slot. The FPR doesn't need one or goes in the Foreign Policy Slot once it is open. The ILV amendment is Forum Affairs, both slots are currently open.

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.
