Quote from: Üc R. Tärfâ on Yesterday at 01:14:55 PM
Quote from: Breneir Tzaracomprada on Yesterday at 08:52:14 AMA new Article 7.13 is added as follows:

Quote7.13 NOTING ON APPLICATION. The Ministry of Immigration shall note the applying immigrant's province when presenting the application for consideration.

I suggest to modify that part in this way, and move it to the section of title E concerning the introduction of the prospective immigrant and not under section 7 that is about the issuing of the grant of citizenship:

A new section 3.1 is added as follows:

Quote3.1 The Ministry of Immigration shall note the prospective immigrant's future provincial assignment in the introducing thread.


Thanks, I've edited the bill in the CRL.
Quote from: Audrada Roibeardet on Yesterday at 11:37:13 AMWe haven't done a Virtual Shoot in awhile and, I'll be honest, the last shoot didn't go very well.

Instead of organizing a month long competition, I think we should organize a one day event. Maybe we could hang out, chitchat and do some shooting in real time.

I was thinking we could do this on the 6th of May, 2023. Planning this far in advance gives us some time to practice and figure out how we can socialize during the event.

Let me know if this works for all of you.

I am free any time on that day.
Quote from: Baron Alexandreu Davinescu on Yesterday at 10:02:07 AMPlease add me as co-sponsor.  Sorry, should have asked before this hit the CRL.

The bill is fine in form and function.

Thanks Baron. You've been added as a co-sponsor.
Quote from: Eiric S. Bornatfiglheu on March 24, 2023, 05:25:08 PMSo the bill is meaningless.  Got it.


I re-read your comments and made changes to the bill. Reduction in the timespan for public release and clarification that transmittal TO the Archives (hopefully in a way similar to how Luc handled it previously) is immediate but public release FROM the Archives would happen later.
Whereas, settler colonialism is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as "a type of colonialism in which the indigenous peoples of a colonized region are displaced by settlers who permanently form a society there," and

Whereas, the Kingdom of Talossa is on land itself and is an enclave of the United States, a country fitting this definition, and

Whereas, the Kingdom in the diversity of its citizen's global reach has connections with many countries meeting this description (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa as examples), and

Whereas, land acknowledgments have grown in use as a tool to start conversations around historical witnessing and reconciliation in settler colonialist countries.

Therefore, be it enacted, that the following customized version of the land acknowledgment created by the Electa Quinney Institute of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is added to El Lexhatx Section F as a new subsection:

Quote41. LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT. The Kingdom of Talossa acknowledges it is located on traditional Potawatomi, Ho-Chunk and Menominee homeland along the southwest shores of Michigami, North America's largest system of freshwater lakes, where the Milwaukee, Menominee and Kinnickinnic rivers meet and the people of Wisconsin's sovereign Anishinaabe, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Oneida and Mohican nations remain present.

WHEREAS, at present, the catchment areas of provinces in Talossa are confusing and incongruous; and

WHEREAS while a balanced intake of immigrants, geographical contiguity and common cultural roots may very well be impossible to achieve all at the same time, this is still a step in the right direction to achieve just that.

Quote from: Tric'hard Lenxheir on March 24, 2023, 06:22:47 PMSomething new to try tonight. Jefferson Ocean Aged At Sea Wheated Mash Bill bourbon whiskey (very small batch)

Very nice! I'm having Jim Beam again. And the latest offering of Star Trek: Picard

Whereas our current system leads to chaos, and

Whereas the people of Talossa deserve a more organized transition of government, and

Whereas, this is especially true as it pertains to the nation's finances.

Therefore, be it enacted by the King, Cosa and Senats in Ziu, that a new section is added to Section C in El Lexhatxh, to read as follows:

QuoteC.1.5.8 The burgermeister shall be required to submit a Final Financial Report 30 days before the end of the Cosa to include all expenditures during the Cosa.

Also, be it further enacted, that there shall be a freeze on all government spending during the last 30 days of the Cosa, except that which is necessary for the proper functioning of the government or emergency funding which must be approved by the King and/or a 2/3rds majority of the Cosa.

Tric'hard I made a few proofreading edits, if acceptable.
Quote from: Breneir Tzaracomprada on March 24, 2023, 12:33:28 PMOk, folks here is the Doodle Poll for dates. I tried to create a time which was as friendly as possible for global participation so it might be Sci-Fi & Coffee for some of us.

@Bråneu Excelsio I immediately thought of you when I was writing that.  ;D

Quote from: Breneir Tzaracomprada on August 31, 2022, 08:21:44 AMWhereas, the Chancery is one of the most important offices in the Kingdom, and

Whereas, it has been frequently stated that filling the position of Secretary of State has been a troublesome task in the recent past, and

Whereas, this statutory revision is offered in the spirit of reform as a process or act of fundamental problem-solving or iterative improvement.

Therefore, be it resolved, that the following changes are made to Title C of El Lex:

The existing 1.2.1 is replaced with: One member of the Chancery shall be the Deputy Secretary of State. The Deputy Secretary of State shall be appointed under the same procedure as the Secretary of State in addition to advice and consultation from the current Secretary of State. The Deputy Secretary of State shall immediately succeed the Secretary of State upon their death, resignation, or removal. The Deputy Secretary of State shall fulfill responsibilities to assist the effective operation of the Chancery as assigned or delegated by the Secretary of State.

The existing 1.2.1 is renumbered to 1.2.2 and revised and following subsections are renumbered: Another member of the Chancery shall be the Royal Data Clerk, heading the Office of Dynamic Data Management. The function of the Office of Dynamic Data Management is to manage all computer records owned by the Kingdom of Talossa for its official functions and delegated to its care in order to help other Royal Households, Ministries or any other organization of the Kingdom which needs data management. The Royal Data Clerk may be the same person as the Secretary of State. The Royal Data Clerk shall be considered an Officer of the Royal Household.

1.2.3. is revised to read as follows: The Royal Data Clerk is appointed by the Secretary of State. The Deputy Secretary of State and/or the Royal Data Clerk may perform official business as delegated to them by the Secretary. Both the Deputy Secretary of State and the Royal Data Clerk shall have all the access required to carry out the Chancery's functions under this section.

I still think this is a good idea.
Quote from: Tric'hard Lenxheir on March 23, 2023, 12:31:54 PMAs a citizen of Vuode, I think the catchment areas in the United States and Mexico are great, the African catchment area to me is negligible but I think it works.

Thank you Tric'hard!
I am hoping we have addressed any outstanding objections, but if not, please let me know.
This weekend I will send to the CRL.
Quote from: Miestră Schivă, UrN on March 23, 2023, 04:04:16 PMThank you, Deputy Minister. Just to clarify: are you saying that there was no feedback from the Coletx itself, as a unit, but only from individual members?

That is correct, no unit-wide feedback of the Coletx but participation by several members in the design itself and conversation concerning transmittal for approval.

Participating individuals from the Coletx:
The Squirrel Viceroy of Arms, The Rouge Elephant Herald (Nordselva)
The Long Fellow, Royal Talossan College of Arms (Autofil)
OAF (Vilacafat)
Squirrel King of Arms; The Noir Eagle Herald (Ardpresteir)

I may be missing some context from messages lost in the Wittpocalypse though.
Quote from: Baron Alexandreu Davinescu on March 15, 2023, 08:24:36 PMWHEREAS there is a large legal loophole that would permit virtually any crime, including very serious crimes such as threats of sexual assault, theft, bribery, or anything else, and

WHEREAS the problem lies with the fact that we're offering unlimited and unqualified sanctuary under terms which clearly reference the medieval Christian practice of offering church protection from secular law, thereby allowing anyone to claim the right of sanctuary if accused of crimes, and

WHEREAS it's hard to find any other way to interpret this bit of the law so that it makes sense, and so therefore this reading probably is going to be a valid one, or at the very least would be an incredible complication that might make it impossible to prosecute someone, and

WHEREAS no one has yet taken advantage of it, but there's no reason to think that will last forever,

THEREFORE the ninth section of Title A of el Lexhatx, which currently reads

Quote9. The Ziu hereby recognizes the historic right of churches and other religious organizations to offer sanctuary to individuals in dire need.

is hereby stricken in its entirety.

FURTHERMORE, the Scribe is directed to renumber Title A in a sensible fashion.

Just making sure we move on these. Baron this one looks ripe for clarking as well.
@Baron Alexandreu Davinescu I just noticed this has been sitting in the CRL for some time. Are you planning on this going on the second clark?
