I certainly think so. No account needed, no in-episode ads (just hide the 5 that pop up on the page), totally free, and constantly up-to-date.
WA News, "Rethinking It" Edition. "Rights of Indigenous Peoples" version 2.0 was defeated 6,665 votes to 5,719. Apparently folks just thought it was a bad idea all around.
And speaking of folks thinking resolutions are bad ideas, now up for vote is a proposed repeal of GAR #113, "The Gem Trading Accord". The repeal author's argument is that the WA is micro-managing the gem trade, and that the requirements for WA approved testing labs and such are keeping poorer nations out of the business, and that the whole thing is anti-free trade.
The argument is pretty straightforward, but kind of specious. The Gem Trading Accord was passed as a form of consumer protection, which almost by definition puts a crimp on free trade.
This seemed the proper place for this thing.
WA News, "Still Rethinking It" Edition. General Assembly Resolution #113, "The Gem Trading Accord" was re[ealed 10,925 votes to 1,641. So you'd better get a second opinion on that Maxtopian diamond you just bought.
Currently up for vote is another repeal, this time of GAR #315, the "Nuclear Power Safeguards Act". The repeal author is claiming the resolution is badly written and fails to account for various types of nuclear reactor designs, and the wording mandating who is responsible for overseeing nuclear plant safety is ambiguous and confusing.
Although the early votes for this proposed repeal seem to be in favor of it (largely due to the heavyweight delegates Mousebumples and SillyString), the debate in the Assembly Hall is decidedly against it. Not so much because the resolution is worth keeping, but that the author's arguments are irrelevant and specious. The sense of the Assembly debate seems to be that if this resolution is to be repealed, the repeal must be better thought-out.
So Japan is pretty okay.
Saw the place where Nobunaga died (not really because nothing is original), and other cool stuff.
Been to Kabukicho? ;)
"Don't worry, we come in peace. We are just visiting, for now, to see what's what."
(OOC: I do realise that the 'Girl Genius' is a web-comic rather than anime, but this still seems one of the most appropriate regions for the nation anyway. I'm the player who's also responsible for Bears Armed, and none of my [quite numerous] puppets were already here...)
How exactly do you get the furniture restoration industry? When ever you make decisions about, say, automobiles- you get the automobile industry. If you legalize guns and such you get arms manufacturing. But I can't think of any issues that would give me that industry. Is it just an issue I haven't gotten for making certain economic decisions on issues?
I guess it's almost random. I don't remember doing anything about furniture industry but I got 10th ranking. Maybe it's because my government focus on industry and economic freedom.
WA News, "Wash Your Hands" Edition: General Assembly Resolution #315, "Nuclear Power Safeguards Act" was repealed 10,590 votes to 2,017. Hopefully we'll get a replacement proposal on the books soon.
Currently up for vote, though, is a proposal on "Preserving Antimicrobials". The basic idea is to discourage nations from over-use of anti-microbial compounds that, through over-use, can cause the evolution of microbial-resistant "superbugs". It's a good idea, although the implementation is a little vague. It calls for the World Health Authority to do more research stuff, mostly. It does mandate member nations spend money on education and investment in infection control methods, so it's not totally Just Another Committee resolution. Overall, it's probably useful.
