My speech, while of poor quality which I freely admit, is an adequate statement of truth.

It wasn't really a statement at all; it was a rant.

Quote
What the hell language is that, anyway? Tongue

English, of course. It's more-or-less how I talk - somewhat exaggerated in a couple of places, obviously. Do please note the context. I was trying to make a point.

Change the word British to American and you make that statement about yourself DWTL.
What?  I don't use idioms or vague language.  I am probably the most to the point person on this forum

The Emergency Credit Access Act was a good piece of legislation, but it does not go far enough. We need a permanent "public option" for credit. Consider it.

Not if it's restricted and managed. The idea that we hinder growth with atrocious interest rates is probably a driving factor of the sagging economy. If we could give Atlasians access to responsible credit with fair and workable rates, we could see private sector growth skyrocket.

There is such a thing as interest rates being too low and that certainly occured from 2002-2004 when the Fed decreased then held steady rates after the traditional market indicators called for increases in the Fed rate. That helped flood the market with a lot of garbage. And housing didn't decouple from Wage growth untill 2002 when wages fell but housing continued to soar upwards. I don't want the Gov't directly involved in banking. Another fear is that what killed the Banks was not the bad loans alone but the combination of the CDS market, Securitization, and Movement of assets into the Stock market while strict mark to market accounting rules existed. Without that all the major banks could have weathered the storm. So whats to stop the Gov't from getting sucked into a future mess if there are not only guarenteeing but holding large numbers of loans and suddenly they all default.

Those problems stemmed largely from irresponsible lending and speculation as well as middlemen interference, two problems that would be eliminated with a national bank. It would also provide the government with some extra revenue while having very very very limited risk.

Yes that what put the diseases in the banks true. But the banks would killed by what I listed above. I don't want Gov't interference. Despite hype and misinformation, I am not a socialist or even a Liberal. In the future my voting record will begin to reflect that fact more and more.

Press Release-
I want to thank the President and the Senate for there speedy work on the the Emergency Credit Access Act. This is an important piece of legislation that will help speed us to our recovery by opening up lines of credit to homeowners and small businesses at a time when even people with the best credit ratings are getting denied and revolving lines of credit to small businesses are being cut by the big banks to help secure the bottom line and raise capital to help cover losses sustained from write-downs. This will have measurable effects on employement by helping small businesses make payroll and help the housing market turn around.

This was a great piece of legislation and it is for this attitude toward strengthening Atlasia' businesses and workers that I bestow upon you my endorsement in October's upcoming election.

It was an excellent bill. I sure wish you'd stick to stuff like that instead of trying to limit Atlasians' freedom.

The economy will always have 60 to 75% of my attention. But I can't let something like that porn bill just slip by without a fight. I hope you can atleast understand why.

Update reading list

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

This is not my campaign thread, it is my office. The Axe image is very appealing but the names at the bottom leave something to be desired.

Statement on Trash Bill-

Today the Senate made a grave mistake with the passage of the BCBW bill which allows 14 years olds to purchase porn without parental consent or involvement. Its and open invitation for anarchy and social decay. Its advancing the Cultural Marxist agenda by putting the children of Atlasia. Seven Senators violated your secred trust by voting for this disgusting, vile, degenerate trash. I pray to Leip that he will grant them the chance to live to regret this unbelievable act of stupidity. This is a truly sad day for Atlasia.

Yankee, one day you will realize that the only person's morals you need to worry about are your own.  You will also realize that the only person's morals that you can do a damn thing about... are your own.

This isn't YOUR society.  It is just society.  We're all a part, for better or for worse.  You don't get to tell me how I should live my life.  If you're so concerned about moral decay, go hole yourself up on a ranch somewhere or live in a conservative Christian commune. 

But every time you push me towards some idiotic moral epiphany, I'll push back twice as hard.
