AKSUN HOW DID YOU GET YOUR TWO EGGS? ARE THEY DRAGON EGGS?
A dragon never tells.
Who's your special dragon friend who gave you the eggs? ;)
I think we need to pair up PDHTN's Holy Red Zombies with the Holy Blue Zombies that Aksun had for a while. :)
I'll try to get that issue again on my other account, and let you know if I can get it again.
A national newspaper has uncovered details of a number of politicians' expenses documents, publishing claims from gold-plated toilet seats to elaborate steak dinners for dogs. Following the publication, the general public is clamoring at your door demanding answers.
"This is the sort of disgraceful behavior we've come to expect from our politicians," bemoans unemployed teacher, Jazz Falopian. "Look around you! No one else is living so extravagantly. We need to lower all politicians' salaries to the poverty line and put the kibosh on these claimed 'business expenses' too. Maybe then they'll understand how real people actually live in Stjerne."
"This is quite absurd!" scoffs Akira Yeats, taking a sip of Bollinger '86. "We toil day in and day out keeping this country running, and this is the thanks we get? Newspapers snooping around our personal business, questioning what we need to do our jobs. We incur certain, necessary expenses that may look odd when taken out of context - and that's just what the media is doing! They're distorting the facts just to boost their ratings. Well, I say their prying eyes have gone too far. We need to outlaw this underhanded 'reporting' for the sake of the patriotic values that made this nation great!"
Any advice guys? I'm unsure as to whether to pick option one or dismiss it.
General officers in the Stjernean Armed Forces are requesting the criminalisation of "stolen valour" - the impersonation of decorated service members, often with the motive of financial gain.
"These traitorous cowards need to be prosecuted!" says red-faced Vice Admiral Al Licorish while puffing out his chest, proudly showing off his own service medals. "They demean the heroic actions of veterans who did actually earn the medals, and desecrate the memory of those who died in service of Stjerne. I know what my boys would do to these charlatans if they caught them, and I can't promise I'd intervene! I'd like to see these pretenders try to earn the medals they want to show off. Actually, let's do that - send all these fraudsters to the front line. That'll teach them."
"It is the right of all citizens to express themselves in any way they chose", claims the dixie cup-sporting Rosalia Clinton, an investigative journalist with On Liberty magazine. "People should be free to dress in any uniform without fear of reprisal or punishment - and that includes wearing a uniform of the SAF. What better way to display to the world one's patriotism! And if you happen to get more respect or some discounts because of it, all the better. If that argument doesn't persuade you, then maybe you should ask the Vice Admiral how he won those medals. You can bet your bottom Credit that if you criminalise this, journalists will start asking serving officers that question. Do you want to have a media witch-hunt of the military?"
"Why do we celebrate and glorify warmongering by raising these conquistadors above every else?" questions Ali Sato, an anti-war protester outside the gates of your office building. "These medals and uniforms only exist to exert dominance and fear over the masses. The military claim these medals are rewards, but they are actually trophies declaring to the world how many innocent civilians their brainwashed killers massacred. We should do away with our armed forces and imprison those who have killed supposedly in the name of Stjerne."
Have you guys had this one before?
I dismiss the first issue. It seems like neither one fits with the way I run the country.
I have seen the second issue before, I think its new.
Following recent advances in artificial intelligence, debate has arisen in Stjerne over whether AI's should have the right to citizenship.
"Giving citizenship to computers and software programs is just downright crazy," says citizen Howard Rifkin. "Who knows if they're even really alive? Just because some of them may look human doesn't mean they're equal to us. It could all just be imitation."
"These beings have just as much of a right to citizenship as the rest of us," argues civil rights activist Roxanne Usman. "True, we may not be able to tell if they're really 'alive', per se, but how can we tell that they aren't? But the androids should be put at the top of the list. At least we know that they have the same viewpoint as us humans."
"This is craziness!" says Tobias Strange, a resident interviewed by the popular news show 'Talk o' the Town'. "It's just blasphemy, plain and simple! We're, like, playin' God here! It's evil, man, evil! What if they turned against us? All forms of AI should be banned, dudes."
A couple episodes this issue reminds me of.
I was thinking the same thing. What I'm worried about is, was this issue written by someone with that in mind or someone that's a fan of AIs going rampant?
