  1. It’s not us — it’s PP. (and maybe Admin?) This account was created 15 minutes ago. It’s political pundit.

  3. I actually thought of the original poem when I got banned, after initially agreeing with Patine's ban. My bad, Patine. Admin's overactive protection of a specific user of this forum, to the detriment of all other users of this forum, will eventually lead to the end of this forum.
  4. Cleveland has enough IP to cover it, if that’s what you’d like to do. In addition to spending IP, you’ll also need @swejie to agree to pass this as it requires attorney general approval as well.
  5. That’s the spirit! ISSUE FOUR 1884 As Cleveland’s term in office comes to a close, he’s forced to take a public stand as yet another federal scandal comes to light. Will he demand the perpetrators be brought to justice? Or dismiss it as business as usual in these dark times?
  6. Ok, quadruple statehood achieved! @Leuser spends 1 IP. President Cleveland and Secretary @swejie Adlai Stevenson each gain 2 popularity. @swejie gets 3 bonus victory points.
  7. 37 Spokesman for 11 hospitals and more than 30 clinics. Bachelors degree in corporate communications. I started my masters in Public Administration, but had to drop out to take the spokesman job. A moderate liberal, presumably. I float between ENFP and ENFJ.
  8. From One of your statesman or faction? Both are valid options
  9. Yeah, when you vote you can also play a card or spend IP (1 IP = 3 votes). As the last to vote, @vcczar can spend an IP to win this in congress.
  10. He wasn’t wrong. People think anything less than a 50% chance means a 0% chance. He’s not responsible for people not knowing what a percentage chance means.
  11. That’s how odds work. If something has only a 1% chance of happening, it may be defying the odds when it happens on the first try, but 1% is not “impossible”. Anyone who says there’s a 100% chance of either side winning is being ridiculous. It is not literally impossible for either side to win (2016 proved that). More comically, I was listening to one of their podcasts yesterday, and one of the guys (can’t remember if it was Nate Silver or one of his staff, group discussion) said “There is a 100% chance that Joe Biden wins the election!” Followed by “There is a 100% chance that Donald Trump wins the election!” And then jokingly telling his sound guy to split the two predictions and play the correct one after the election so he can be the guy who confidently predicted the exact result of the election. ;c)
  12. @swejie is an aye. That's 23 aye, 25 nay. @Leuser?
  13. Not really. I have a very full life, mostly surrounded by people who care about the downtrodden, or at least have the good sense to not tell people if they don't. I am not short on people who bring joy to my life -- I can spare those who do not. It's literally not, though. You think rioting is a 2020 invention?
  14. Eh, worst case scenario, it’s 2016 again. We’ve been through that, and it sucks and I hate it, but it’s not going to be a civil war or whatever. Just people being rude to each other from the safety of their computer/phone screens, which has been happening forever. I can’t respect anyone that I know votes for Trump, and I’m not sad to lose those people from my life. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to go murder them, as the crazy “civil war!” people pretend would happen. Take it from a guy who’s been through war — almost nobody who spends their time arguing on the internet has what it takes to survive...including me, these days. There will be no war except the one fought through rude words on the internet.
  15. Was the Middle East stable before we got there?
  16. What an interesting thing to believe
  17. @swejie 1883 ISSUE THREE @vcczar has confirmed he’s sending this one to Secretary Stevenson for consideration. Hey, remember that good job you did drawing those fancy borders around Utah? Well, good work is rewarded with more work. Think you could draw some borders around four more states?
  18. Interesting article on this topic. ...which I can’t figure out how to link on my phone. Dangit. Anyway, they say it’s actually difficult to tell because Trump chronically lies, claiming “biggest rally ever” when he’s only got a few thousand gathered. But they say it looks like Trump’s biggest rally this year was 15,000. His biggest rally in 2016 was 30,000. Of course, difference could be COVID based. comparatively, Obama’s biggest crowd 75,000.
  19. I guess they’re super confident of their lead there, right? ;c)
