International Democratic Union Regional Message Board
The Bears have also voted against the GA proposal, both because they don't see its subject as an appropriate one for WA legislation and because they are opposed to the idea of legalising late-term abortions...
... but I've spotted a major loophole in that proposal's wording, anyhows. ^_^
The currently at-vote SC proposal is being 'discarded' by the Mods, because apparently Auralia multi-ed to use a puppet for submitting this while keeping their main nation in the WA too (so that people would be less likely to guess that it was actually a self-commendation)...
I've voted against the current GA resolution, but its victory is inevitable at this point... I wouldn't be opposed to a repeal, but I don't think I have the interest to write one myself.
Regarding the current SC resolution - that was like an M. Night Shymalan plot twist. I guess I'll vote against as an act of reprobation towards the author, but it's going to be discarded anyways (which the SC seems to be doing a lot of recently).
A few announcements and clarifications. Firstly, The Dark Star Republic has been selected as the region's vice delegate! He's got the second highest endorsement count, so I figured it made practical sense as well. So be sure to change your endorsements accordingly.
Secondly, my comment regarding discussing resolutions on the forum was more of a question rather than a statement. Would anyone like to move to the forums for discussing proposals, or are we alright with discussing them on the RMB?
I guess I would probably vote with my feet...if we discussed them on the forum, I'd go there, but while no one is discussing them there, I tend to stick here. So if several people would prefer the forum, count me in; if they wouldn't, then not.
Congratulations, DSR! A position well-deserved, in my opinion.
Congratulations, DSR... and our thanks both to them and to Ascovis for being willing to accept office.
I am pleased to announce that 98 of our region's current 99 nations are ranked above the 'World Average (mean)' level for Happiest Citizens... even down to the one ranked at 111'506/115'686 in the world! Fleas and fur-loss, what hell-holes the last 4'000 or so nations in the world must be to shift the overall average to that far down the list of nations...
Re the just-passed 'Reproductive Freedoms' resolution, the Bears have posted in the GA to explain how they consider it to have a loophole one could drive a steam locomotive through: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=280836&p=19069049#p19069049.
I, for one, would like to revive the forum activity, seeing that we already have one and that it is designed rather well. But, if more people wish to stay here on the RMB, I don't really have any complaints, seeing that it is much less difficult to get to.
Within the next week, I'll probably introduce myself as the new Foreign Minister to the founders and delegates of the regions we have formal relations with. If I have time, I'll also create a few diplomatic puppets and register in their forums. I hope I can do it sooner, but my RL situation keeps me studying for a large amount of time.
Thanks to Sciongrad who processed my application speedily and responded to me rather quick.
