introduced as a Senate Resolution:

Resolution on the issue of Atlasian recognition of the United States of America

Whereas, contrary to the official standpoint of the Atlasian government, the United States of America are still in existence, and still in possession of all the territories formerly in their possession,

1. The Government of Atlasia is urged to recognize de jure the United States of America, and the legality of the government of the United States of America.
2. The Government of Atlasia is urged to establish diplomatic relations with the United States of America.
3. The Government and the people of Atlasia are urged to frigging come to grips with the fact that Atlasia ain't no superpower, but is in fact a tiny US-shaped country with a population in the low three-digits.



There. My parting gift.

As outgoing (and final) GM I endorse this

Amendment to Allow the Senate to Set a Minimum Wage

The Senate shall have power to set a minimum wage, as it deems necessary. It shall be variable in that one shall be set for the Republic of Atlasia (the Five Regions) and others shall be set for the Insular Territories, at an appropriate level deemed by the Senate. The Regions shall also have power to set a minimum wage, within their jurisdictions, but this shall only have effect where this wage is greater than that which has been set by the Senate.

I'll co-sponsor this

It would seem that in the time that I was away I missed the chance to hurl one of my favourite insults at a certain dolt here.

Oh well...



I also ask that Al's bill establishing an official language for Bergen County, NJ to be struck as either frivolous or unconstitutional, take your pick.

I have already stated (in this thread as well) that the objections to the bill must be taken seriously, so obviously I won't challenge the PPT's decision.

5. To be empanelled on to a jury, the juror shall repeat the following oath: "I swear (or affirm) that I will well and truly try the matter in issue between the parties, and give a true verdict according to the law and evidence, so help me Dave."

I would like to object to the reintroduction of three defeated bills in slightly different form as being frivolous.

Considering the objection and recommendation of the president concerning my bill in his veto was to fix up the taxation section, resubmitting this bill that passed is far from frivolous.  As for Ebowed I do not know why he did that.

It was still defeated. If it wasn't defeated you wouldn't be re-introducing it.

Can't you at least wait until the next Senate? Not that you'll be in it, but I'm sure that whoever defeats you will be happy to introduce bills written by their constituents.

My bill was passed, please read more carefully.  The president and others recommended I clean up the tax section and reintroduce it, that is exactly what I did.

I can read quite well, thank you. But I think that you need to understand what "passed" in the context of "legislation" means.
Not that it's something especially likely to bother you for much longer.

I am withdrawing the following bills:

Northern Ireland Aid Bill
Middle East Aid Bill
Say Sorry Bill
We Don't Do Coups Bill

Have a look at the sheer size of the pile-of-bills-that-hath-not-yet-made-it-to-the-floor and thee shall see why.

It would be nice if others would do the same sort of thing.

I would not object to other people introducing the above bills (or nicking bits of them or something) in later Senates, btw.

Edit: "pile-of-bills" not "pile-of-biles". Ho, ho.

Italian is neither a significant international language of commerce nor spoken in multiple countries.

So what?

So, we're trying to encourage the teaching of languages of international significance.

But not everyone will be an international busy-ness-man. How do kid's who'll grow up to become brickies, mechanics or office workers benefit from failing to learn Chinese at school?

Wouldn't it make more sense to turn Sofa into a sort of civil-service position rather than a technically political one?
