Woodstock Regional Message Board
Wow, thank you for the offer of the different recreational drugs.
In return I would like to offer you several kegs of JS's finest beer. Something to wash that cake down.
Just so you all know, I do not believe in voting for the "Condemn or Commend" acts in the WA. I see them as nothing more than popularity contests. I also do not vote on the issues where there is a repeal.
IF you want me to do something different, please let me know. I will always listen to the thoughts of the Region.
I'd say go a step further and vote against them by default. If enough people do that, then it would take something significant to pass one.
This is the latest resolution:
GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION AT VOTE
Moratorium on Animal Testing
A resolution to restrict civil freedoms in the interest of moral decency.
Category: Moral Decency
Proposed by: Elke and Elba
Description: NOTING that animals are an integral part of the environment and provide many essential functions to the natural regulation of the environment, also,
RECOGNISING that animals themselves have rights that should be and must be enforced too,
UNDERSTANDING that there are other forms of testing available including but not limited to, medical imaging through microdosing, computer simulation, testing on tissue and cell culture,
FURTHER UNDERSTANDING that due to the presence of such advances in technology today, the use of animal testing is unjustified and unwarranted as these other forms of testing are more humane as compared to animal testing,
The World Assembly,
ENCOURAGES member states to enforce a ban on animal experimentation, especially on practices which are painful and/or excessively harmful to animals;
FURTHER ENCOURAGES member states enact laws on to decrease and/or eliminate animal experimentation in their respective jurisdiction to bring private companies and corporations into compliance, yet;
REQUESTS all member states to provide adequate living conditions for animals being experimented on;
FURTHER REQUESTS member states provide adequate after-experiment care, palliative or otherwise, for animals that have outlived their purpose in experiments;
URGES member states to invest in research to find additional ways to conduct testing, and;
FURTHER URGES member states share such research with other nations.
At this point I am personally against this motion. I will listen to the opinions of the region.
If the animals choose to take part in tests, cool. Otherwise we shouldn't force them. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.
I voted for the moratorium on animal testing. As I said before, I will listen to the will of the region.
.................... uhhh, like,yeah, dude, cuz animal testing is too stressful for the animals .................. i uuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, i say we shouldn't make the animals take tests we can't pass ourselves ............. and i think we can't expect them to do their tests in writing cuz, like uhhh, most animals can't even hold a pencil, never mind write with it right ........ so, uhhhhhhh .............. so .......... OH HEY like there's one test we should let animals take because uhh ................ we all can do it too, like, uhhh, we should let our animals take the electric koolaid acid test cuz, you know, cuz we take it too ........
*wanders off to find pet cat* .......... here uhhh, you know, like uh, whatever your name is, here now uhhh, cat, i've got some nice juice for you and uh, you'll like it cuz it's really a test you can pass and uhhhh, you know, it's pretty far out and uh ................................... like here uh ..... cat ............
Here is the latest resolution. Personally, I am in favor of this one.
Strategic Arms Reduction
A resolution to slash worldwide military spending.
Category: Global Disarmament
Proposed by: Chester Pearson
Description: The World Assembly,
RECOGNIZING that nuclear weapons are used in warfare,
ACKNOWLEDGING that nuclear weapons play a pivotal role in many nations deterrence policy,
CONCERNED that many nations maintain an over abundant strategic nuclear arsenal, which if utilized to their full extent in a military conflict would cause massive wide scale damage to nations not participating in said conflict ,
ALARMED that the use of nuclear weapons causes horrific damage to the surrounding environment, and massive unneeded civilian casualties, particularly when strategic nuclear weapons are utilized against population centres,
FOR THE PURPOSES of this resolution defines nuclear weapons into the following categories:
Strategic nuclear weapon as a nuclear weapon which is designed to be used on targets as part of a strategic plan, such as nuclear missile bases, military command centers and heavily populated civilian areas such as large towns and cities, delivered by either gravity bomb, or long range missile system,
Tactical nuclear weapon as a nuclear weapon which is designed to be used on a battlefield in military situations, delivered by gravity bomb, landmine, bomb, or short range rocket/missile system,
The General Assembly:
Declares that member nations shall reduce their strategic nuclear arsenals to a minimum required to assure plausible and credible nuclear deterrence from hostile nations,
Defines credible minimal nuclear deterrence as a nation possessing no more strategic nuclear weapons than is necessary to deter an adversary from attacking, without facing an unacceptable level of damage in return,
Upholds member nations rights to possess tactical nuclear arsenals of a strength required to effectively pursue military campaigns which require the use of nuclear weapons to prosecute their military objectives,
Requires member nations to submit to inspection of their nuclear weapons to ensure they are in full compliance with this act.
geez, Hippies, that koolaid is STRONG! Could you dial it back a few notches for us mere mortals? or at least remind us to dilute it or something? you have any idea how far away I ended up dude? I don't know if I passed the acid test but I sure as hell passed uranus neptune and pluto. I been gone so long I see a load of other people are gone now and we didn't even get to have a last toke up together.
Anyway, it's good to be back. I need music while I'm getting my tent pitched again.
The definitions are subjective - that bill will achieve nothing.
