The Lobby / A Short Statement from the Leader of the Opposition
« on: October 15, 2020, 09:19:34 PM »

Let me be among those to congratulate Sir Alexandreu on his appointment as Regent. May he serve the Kingdom admirably.

While I will not engage here in a point-by-point rebuttal of the Government's statement, I nevertheless believe the castigations contained within it are quite overblown. While it is no secret I have my criticisms of the King, his appointment of a Regent hardly strikes me as the epochal event the Seneschal makes it out to be.

I do, however, caution the newly-appointed Regent that the Government's claims are not entirely without merit. Workng together effectively requires a special effort when such enmity is present, and I expect that from both sides.

I therefore strongly encourage the Regent not to veto a bill unless he has explained his opposition to it before it is Clarked. This is the same standard I have applied to the King several times before.

To the esteemed chambers of the Cosa and Senäts,

Someone has to pose the first Terp so it might as well be me. I'll keep the subject matter light.

Can the Honourable Minister please explain why the immigrant questionnaire includes two questions about Marvel movies and another question about the Rocky movies? As good as they may be, multiple immigrants have already answered those questions to the effect of "I'm not remotely interested in any of that"; would it be better to replace those with something more general?

Benito / Represent the LCC in the Assembly of Benito
« on: August 19, 2020, 01:48:39 PM »
If you are interested in representing the League of Centre Conservatives in the Assembly of Benito, please let me know.

Wittenberg / Broosking Discussion.
« on: August 15, 2020, 03:35:43 PM »
(and, honestly, the less words you use the better; just to prove how silly this particular rule is thus giving us more of a reason to scrap the rule). 
This seems like broosking to me...

Does the Interior Ministry notify prospectives of this requirement? If not, it should be no surprise that it is never met until the last minute, because immigrants do not know to be thinking about it.

The Hopper / Placeholder Act to Remind Me to Write an Act
« on: August 05, 2020, 08:47:30 PM »

THEREFORE The process for selecting a new Monarch shall be improved in an as of yet undetermined fashion.

The Lobby / Org Chart Info Dump
« on: August 05, 2020, 08:42:16 PM »
In fall 2018, I made this Org Chart. The people in the roles are obviously out of date but I think the structure is mostly the same.

I have also attached a list of positions from last summer. This list and the previous versions are also available on TalossaWiki here: under "Full List of Appointees"

18th Convocation of the Provincial Assembly of Maritiimi-Maxhestic

Given I am still technically the Grand Specific Undersecretary, I am the only one left in a provincial executive role, which gives me the best authority to open this convocation.

Members, besides myself, are:
-Sir Alexandreu Davinescu
-Jordan Placie
-Cresti d.I. Nouacastra-L.

Maritiimi-Maxhestic / Assembly Call for 18th Convocation
« on: July 26, 2020, 06:33:08 PM »
I’m tired of waiting. The M3 can come here and make this official when he gets around to it.

I stake my claim

Wittenberg / The LCC Executive Platform
« on: July 22, 2020, 06:46:43 PM »
When I wrote the manifesto of the League of Centre Conservatives, I was as big-tent as possible; after all, we are now the only party in a space that used to be occupied by two, and sometimes three, different parties. Therefore, I left out details of how we would govern were we to win the election. However, it's important that voters know we have a plan, beyond simply being a pro-Monarchist party, and therefore we present
The LCC Executive Platform
-We will reintroduce the Prime Minister's Days of Observance program, which was so popular when I implemented it during the 52nd Cosa that it got its own TalossaWiki page. I pledge to eat as many weird sandwiches as necessary, not only to encourage editing the wiki, but also other initiatives such as a fundraising drive, interaction with new citizens, etc.
-We will create a clear list of what government positions are open and how to apply for them. I also won't hesitate to fire anyone who is not doing anything with their post (I've done it before); vacancies are OK because there is the possibility someone will come along and get active in the post.

-We will continue to find fun uses for Talossan social media accounts, such as the excessive celebrations of Maritiimi-Maxhestic Istuporaziua on Twitter and the "This Day in History" series on Facebook
-We will create a refreshed version of "What's Happening in Talossa?" to make it easier for new and returning citizens to get involved.

-Ministers will be expected to lead by example and coordinate and participate in cultural initiatives outside of Government.

-We will investigate partially diversifying the Kingdom's portfolio, which currently is held exclusively in a savings account, into higher-yielding assets
-We will conduct a fundraising campaign to raise money for the Kingdom

-We will market our coins and stamps to members of the micronational community
-We will investigate ways to become involved in programs in the Greater Talossan Area

-We will produce physical manifestations of Talossan citizenship, such as ID cards, citizenship certificates, and donation certificates
-We will attempt to arrange a trip to Cezembre for citizens who are able to attend
