Well done. While the ongoing Federalist lawsuit that aims to abolish universal healthcare by judicial fiat shows that our opponents don't always care about the results of elections, we'll move into the next session with a clear mandate, and we'll need your leadership more than ever before.

Now let's not be hyperbolic here. Riley is the one who filed suit, not the party. You urge caution whenever someone equates Labor with TNF, I suggest you do the same here- especially considering that, unlike TNF, Riley is not a party official nor is he the one putting out most of its legislative proposals.

We had a massive storm system come through my neck of the woods last night that collapsed power lines and knocked my cable out. I'm currently posting via a WiFi hotspot (that I won't have access to after a few hours) and so I wanted to take the opportunity to note that I will be absent as a result. The cable company says that they'll try to get us back up and running in the next 24-48 hours, but the outage could last as long as 4 days, and so I might not be able to post until July 6.

In lieu of that, I would like to declare a leave of absence until Sunday, July 6, or until my cable gets back up and running, whichever comes sooner. I apologize for this and ask that legislation of which I am sponsor not be put to a final vote in the time that I will be gone, if that is at all possible. Thank you all, I am sorry for the inconvenience.

As James from Rocket Power used to say "Tisk tisk tisk!"

Anybody who opposes the Senator will have to deal with the full weight of the Workingman's Paper.  You can rest assured of that.

And believe me, it ain't gonna be pretty.

COMRADES!

What Federalists are imagining right now

For the first time in the history of our fair Republic, the working class has taken control of the Senate. With the rightful certification of the ballots cast for proletarian leadership of the Senate by our esteemed comrade Windjammer (he shall be sorely missed), I have taken up the position of President Pro Tempore of the Senate. I shall make it my utmost priority as PPT to reform the outdated and counterproductive body of Senate rules and procedures, and utilize my power as PPT as a bludgeon against bourgeois sensibility and against the oppression of the working class by the parasitic vampires of the bourgeois class.

Forbidding a senator from their private job and the rights of said income from private labor is a no no.

SENATE DIRECTIVE NO. 2
Regulations concerning the Senate cafeteria
President Pro Tempore of the Senate and Regional Senator TNF of the Midwest

The Senate cafeteria shall henceforth only procure materials from worker owned and managed cooperatives. In cases where a worker owned or managed cooperative does not produce materials needed by the Senate cafeteria, the procurement of materials must be from a company that uses union labor.

All renovations to the Senate cafeteria, or to any part of the Senate chambers, shall henceforth be made with union labor.

The Senate cafeteria shall henceforth not employ managers except those chosen by the workers of the Senate cafeteria themselves by secret ballot. The workers shall manage the cafeteria themselves, set working hours, and determine their roles at work by democratic means from this point forward.

I could never guillotine a fellow Laborite. Wink Thank you for your kind words and keep up the good work as GM, Comrade Napoleon.

It was a tie, Johanus, and Windjammer broke the tie in favor of TNF. That is how the Senate works.

Also, Senators have a salary and a cafeteria?

Also, I don't particularly like putting Jefferson the slaveowner up on a pedestal, figuratively or literally.

Hey, you're not a Senator, so perhaps you shouldn't tell the Senate how to manage its employees.
