Janis leaned back in her chair, lifting her feet onto her desk, and started to peel an orange. "Like the Vitamine said, the proposal bans nations from not letting people to travel if they're too unwell to survive said travel. That puts unfair pressure on whatever commercial transport they may ...

Or do members of this assembly feel that the regulation of the tobacco industry as a whole should be left up to national governments?" "Why should the tobacco industry be regulated at all?" asks Ambassador Drane. "This assembly should stop trying to regulate what mature adults d...

Ambassador Drane, carrying a half-gallon mason jar, enters the room and takes a seat at the bar. "Bartender! A screwdriver, please." He peels away and pockets the label from the jar, and extracts a few bills of foreign money. "Hmmm. Any idea how much one of these is worth?" &quo...

"Repeal "Prevention of Torture"" was defeated 13,516 votes to 2,258. We commit this resolution to the shredder, paper to paper, ink to ink, bad ideas to bad ideas. The Polkian ambassador enters the chamber. "And good riddance, too," he says, picking up his mason jar be...

This resolution infringes upon the sovereignty of every nation, imposing the will of some upon the nations of all. Free enterprise and capitalism created the internet in the first place and to restrict it in the interest of an intangible like 'fairness' is ludicrous. We have all manner of ISP's in ...

I think the current version of that clause itself is crystal clear that it's not mandatory. You're obviously the one who doesn't feel as confident in that wording, since you felt the need to add all those extraneous clauses. I would think, if someone said to me "clause 8 is mandatory!" my ...

This proposal says that I would be in charge of my own elections, I can't let ineligible people vote, and I don't even have to have elections if I run a monarchy or an empire. So would someone please explain to me like I'm a seven year old how is this losing 90% of the vote? What am I missing here?
