On the contrary! This is still the seventh consecutive day and here I am posting this Smiley

The last week has been very busy for me- most notably all the Thanksgiving-related chaos- and given that I have a free day tomorrow I'll be catching up on my participation and doing my due diligence as a Senator. I didn't mean to disappear like that but I didn't realize it had been so long.

Thanks,

Bacon Kingman, Senator At Large

Indeed,
BK should have been instantly removed from office. I guess he will survive despite his inactivity because he's a "nice guy"

The law needs to reflect the reality that real life should - and always will - take priority over an election game. It's disappointing that Torie and BK forgot to post formal leaves of absences, if hardly unprecedented, but it's also ridiculous to suggest we automatically fire two extraordinarily talented public servants for,  respectively, being absent to study for the bar exam and being absent while visiting family during the holidays.

Sometimes Atlasia has to work around real life.

Torie has been away for at least 2 months. When you're away for a so long period, you resign. What's the problem with that.

For Bacon King, I will expose my view in his impeachment thread.

There shouldn't be an impeachment thread. My last post before my absence was on a Monday. I didn't make a post on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Only six consecutive days with no activity Smiley

Can we not argue in this thread please?

I imagine it's up to the chief justice to decide whether to open an impeachment thread, and if he disagrees with you feel free to sue. If any of you want to continue the argument can I recommend the senate protest and analysis thread?

Quote
You must be logged in to read this quote.

Section 2: Reducing the Prison Population
1. No person with a diagnosed mental disorder may be imprisoned upon the passage of this legislation. All persons currently imprisoned with a diagnosed mental disorder shall be released to secure mental health treatment centers upon the passage of this legislation.
2. All prisoners aged 80 and up and those prisoners too infirm to pose a threat to society shall be released to community-based rehabilitation programs effective upon the passage of this legislation.
3. No juvenile offender shall be housed with an adult offender under any circumstances. Violent juvenile offenders shall be housed in separate prison facilities effective upon the passage of this legislation.

Section 3: Prison Conditions
1. Prison conditions are to be humane and sanitary. Prisoners shall have access to adequate heat, light, exercise facilities, clothing, and nutrition. Prisons shall provide access to education not limited to vocational training, but also including college courses, and shall provide libraries and other means by which prisoners may expand their knowledge and learn while incarcerated. Prisoners shall have the right to personal possessions so long as said possessions do not provide a means by which one prisoner may harm another; no personal possession may be seized by prison officials for any reason, except upon the suspicion that said personal possession is being used to harm another prisoner.
2. Prison officials may not discourage or penalize prisoners engaging in consensual sexual activity with one another, and shall, upon request, provide said prisoners with contraception without question and without stipulations.
3. Prisoners shall have the right to communicate with journalists, write letters, and publish their own writings without interference from prison staff.
4. The right to vote shall not be abridged on account of incarceration. Prisoners shall be allowed to cast an absentee ballot for the locality in which they originate or in which the prison they are housed in resides. Prisoners shall be counted as residents of the area in which the prison they are house in resides for the purposes of the Republic of Atlasia Census.
5. Prisoners shall have the right to form unions and collectively bargain with prison administrators over prison conditions. Said unions shall be accorded all of the rights of any other labor organization within the Republic of Atlasia and shall be formed and maintained according to those labor laws that apply to all other labor unions within the Republic of Atlasia.
6. Solitary confinement of prisoners shall be prohibited in any prison receiving federal funding, effective upon the passage of this legislation.
7. A moratorium shall be placed on the construction of any prison with the use of federal funds, effective upon the passage of this legislation.
8. Prison guards are hereby recognized as being exempt from all extant federal labor legislation. Prison guards may not form unions, collectively bargain, or strike. All prison guards shall be subject to the control of local Police Oversight and Review Councils (PORCs) in the locality in which they reside.

Unless otherwise stated herein, this legislation shall take effect upon its passage.[/quote]

I ask that a Senator sponsor this Amendment -- my changes are in bold:

[quote]

The 21st Amendment

The Nineteenth Amendment is repealed, and is reintroduced as follows:

If the President, Vice President, or a member of the Senate does not post on in the Atlas Fantasy Elections Board(s) for seven consecutive days (168 hours) without posting a leave of absence an article of impeachment shall be automatically placed before Senate in accordance with Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 of the Constitution and thus considered accordingly.

Whenever a Justice of the Supreme Court 21 shall have failed to participate in the two consecutive rulings issued by said the aforementioned 21 court, an article of impeachment shall be automatically placed before Senate in accordance with Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 of the Constitution and thus considered accordingly.

Participation in a case shall be determined by whether or not the Justice in question joined, concurred, dissented or recused himself in the case thread, by individual public post, for that particular case.

Windjammer, can I cosponsor with you?

It's just that's the easiest way to bring to this to the floor as quickly as possible, as you have a lot of bills in the queue already.
