News articles this evening.

Also Tony Blair is in jail for war crimes. His son Andrew has virtually disowned him and appears to have become PM of Scotland in the process.

Fischer listened intently, raising his eyebrows a few times, and leaned forward when they were done speaking. He sat, thinking, for a moment. "You know..." he said, possibly about to launch into a charming anecdote. "Actually," he said, standing up, "y'all folks are hard to ...

Jessman swung open to the door to the lobby and marched into the room from the Oval Office. Rosalynn looked disappointed that her fun was over. "Mr. Koons, Ms. Cortez-Luna. Premier Guess. The President will see you now." Once everyone was settled in the room — a process that involved much ...

Yeah, I'll reach out to everyone who's expressed interest once the election happens. For now really the only opportunity to get super involved is with campaign staff, but you can still join as other characters in government who will have more to do after the election — just right now, they won't be ...

Sounds like a great and pretty realistic timeline. Feel free to add in some details when you do the trip as well. I'm sure it didn't happen easily.

Anyway, sorry for my absence today (I now run a PAC if anyone wants to donate). I'll try and post tonight, and I'll definitely post tomorrow.

Saturday, September 28th West Wing Lobby | The White House https://s31.postimg.cc/57hty2bsr/720px-_US-_White_House-_Emblem.svg.png " Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck ," Jessman muttered, storming down the hallway. "Problem, James?" Rosalynn asked, looking up from her phone in the We...

Going to post some news tonight. That'd be a great thing to do — I'll make a post soon with the White House preparing for Guess and Koons to arrive. Perhaps Guess and Koons already discussed it and are looking for support from the administration? On the Cabinet — it's true that Trump merged Labor a...

Going to post some news tonight. Vienna, I was just wondering if Guess and Koons (and maybe Fischer too) could have a conversation on a possible impeachment of a Justice. Guess would probably like to push an argument that it's a High Crime for 5 people to destroy a system millions have democraticall...

Let's get this going again — and of course, happy Fourth! Let's keep it going for at least 34 more years.

I'm going to put up polls and two forecasts tonight, plus some news tomorrow. Vice presidential debate next week.

I’m having a breakdown folks, I’m sorry. This is bad practice as an OP but I have to put the roleplay on hiatus for one week. I will shift the dates in the OP when I get the chance, and we will keep roleplaying on July 5th. Please enjoy your Independence Day! Sorry about this.

Hey Vienna, based on the population projections your using, do you know if the US is Minority-Majority at this point? Just wondering cause I was looking it up and most of the sources I looked at said it would happen in the early 2040's, so just wondering if that's how it is with this timeline. Yes ...

That's a very broad application of the word "politics." What it comes down to is that wasting time thinking about politics just isn't applicable to most fiction. And for the record — I'm sure you'll appreciate this — it doesn't apply to poetry, either. I mean, sure, there's certainly a ve...

But some stories really just aren't political. I keep tying this back to plot because I'm saying this could apply to anything, not just politics — sometimes you need to flesh out politics but the state of technology doesn't matter. Sometimes politics is unimportant, but the history of a family, or ...

America Works can be replaced with anything and it wouldn't change the series. Frank Underwood can't be replaced without radically altering the story. I'm done discussing this with you until you learn to respect other people. I don't need a condescending internet man to "help me understand.&quo...

Respubliko, that's a story you could write. But I don't recall any time in this thread's history when we've thought telling people what to write about was a way to help them improve as a writer. Monitor et al's one-size-fits-all "talk about politics" diagnosis isn't a particularly helpful...

House of Cards, great example. If I write House of Cards fanfiction for some reason, I don't write about the America Works program. It's never really expanded on, is it? I write about Frank and Claire Underwood as characters. We don't understand Frank Underwood's politics very well. What we do under...

1984 must be utter shit. For one of the most political novels of the century, it doesn't meet half the political infodump requirements you've set for interesting literature. I disagree with the politics stuff. If the story isn't about politics — if the audience doesn't care about politics — then if ...

Regardless, my two paragraphs were unrelated. But ...

I disagree with the politics stuff. If the story isn't about politics — if the audience doesn't care about politics — then if anything it hurts to include it. Nobody praises the Phantom Menace for its attention to political detail. Platypus has it right. When we distill literature to its most basic ...
