Welcome to P115, The Democratic Free-Reson Republic
RIP. Rebolus (and Leonard Nimoy)
It is St David's Day - anyone here Welsh?
I have voted AGAINST Wartime Looting and Pillage resolution. I do see where the resolution us coming from, in a sense. But I will not be supporting it. The argument is not good enough or really ethical enough.
The region as a whole, currently has voted in favour of it (3 - 2 in favour). The vote cycle is still early so this may change.
Please debate the issue on the RMB.
I am particularly disturbed by the opening description:
Noting the necessity of military conflict and the violence and destruction that often follows;
Seeking to protect civilians who find themselves caught in a situation they arenít responsible for, and;
Striving for a fair balance between strategic considerations and civilian lives;
i.e. "War is terrible, but necessary, so let's make it a little nicer" and "looting is terrible, but necessary, so let's make it a little nicer, too."
Perhaps the author concluded that an outright ban on pillaging and looting would not pass the WA (which is probably right), that it would be preferable to prevent some of the worst of abuses to protect the civilian population. I'm reasonably sure that such would have the unintended consequence of making the decision of going to war much easier to make. If I had a vote, I'd vote against, too.
I have just voted against - very poorly worded indeed!
They can limit their war making capacity all they want. It doesn't affect me or my pirates.
Ok. We got 7" snow by me. I am out shoveling at night. Sweating bullets. I am about halfway done with my driveway. The whole time a lady in her car is sitting in middle of road. The car is perpendicular to road. It is a small road. She is just chatting on her mobile.
A plow comes up the street. She asks me if she can park in my driveway until plow leaves. There are three other driveways she can go in besides the one she is blocking and mine. But she would have to back up the hill. This isn't easy for her since she didn't really clean her car off good.
I tell her no. She says just until the plow leaves. I tell her i am not shoveling snow out here because it is convenient for me. Back up. Instead she pulls off a little right in front of my driveway so the plow can squeak by. Thankfully I already shoveled that area because I don't want the plow to make it any heavier than the snow already was.
Lady said i was rude. Proceeded to park in another driveway that isn't shoveled. An old guy lives there and shovels his own driveway.
The kicker is there is a driveway for the house she was visiting. The other tenant isn't home so she didn't want to block the driveway. I realized after that she was actually waiting for me to finish so she can park in my driveway.
Question 1: what do you think of that?
Question two: people park in my driveway quite often since I live near the city. Often I open my garage door only to find a car blocking me. Most times they are in the car idling. Sometimes I have to knock on people's doors to find person.
My question is: do you think it is ok that I have to ask permission to leave my own house?
I thank you for my welcome. I may not frequently be active, as this is not my main nation.
Very well then, we've learned enough. Remove his mandibles.
