I am a leaf on the wind
Good Afternoon America, be excellent to each other.
If you got the quote … I applaud you for having an awesome past
So, I’m sure most of you noticed, that the DoD is consistently in the Top 5 now with battle orders updated regularly throughout it’s two day cycle. I’m happy with how we’ve managed to achieve this, although I will say I’m still hoping to work more towards members of the USAF voting it instead of relying on vote buying, but this is a great first step and I hope the practice will continue while we move towards full USAF voting.
The fact that the executive pooled this money together is great too, a great show of unity and I’m proud of each and every person who donated their money to the cause … this couldn’t of been managed without them, so I owe them a debt of gratitude o/!
The response was lukewarm. There was some criticism of using money to buy votes for what people perceive to be an outdated form of orders … while other praised the return while saying the above (That we need USAF to start voting it). Yes, it can be classed as slightly outdated, but those people that say that have to remember that not EVERYONE is in an MU … not everyone is in a militia/military unit and so don’t really know where to fight. I mean hell, you know you must be doing something at least decently well when Bia says that she approves of the direction.
One comment stood out that was extremely funny to me – Hanibal again accused us of using government money. Oh how I laughed so hard … Here’s a hint for you Hanibal – I actually don’t even know the login details for our funds, and the treasury can only be touched by Congress to transfer the funds. The people who do have the login info for the money would laugh in our faces if we asked them for money to vote. So where did we get the money from? I had a lot of money saved over from when there was a decent economy I could profit from, and since then, I’ve constantly been eating into it. I’m sure the rest of my cabinet will agree.
BRUSA DAY! (And why I have a Brazil flag in my avatar)
BRUSA! BRUSA! BRUSA!
But what is BRUSA? Simple, it’s Brazil-USA. This was an idea hatched between me and the Brazillian MoFA to celebrate the broship between Brazil and the USA, and we felt that day would be a great day to let that love show!
So that is why I’m wearing a brazil flag in my avatar – This is part of my show of love to Brazil, to show people and them how much they mean to me as friends and how much I appreciate their broship over the past year plus. I also will be sending a gift to each online Brazillian player to say hello and Happy BRUSA Day … and I would encourage you all to do the same! It doesn’t have to be fancy like 100000 Q7 tanks … It can be a small amount, anything. It’s just to show Brazillians how much we care about them.
But please don’t send them bags of fecal matter … That’s not very nice
Seriously … Since we became friends with Brazil, I can gladly say we’ve been through thick and thin together and I’ve grown to have a deep respect for them as a country and a group of people. They’ve battled extremely hard for us in the past when we’ve needed it most … such as chasing Macedonia across Europe, while we battled in vain against Poland in Denmark … and while we fought to a stalemate in South Korea against Taiwan.
I can’t hide the fact that I get a shot of joy when I see a Brazillian Avatar flash by on the battle bar when I’m fighting, and it makes me so proud to be fighting alongside them in so many battles .. Such as their huge epic war with Argentina at the moment (which I’m so happy to announce that I have been dropping millions for ).
It’s not always easy to find good friends in this game, but I can safely say that we’ve found one of them in Brazil!
Here’s some other articles to celebrate BRUSA Day –

• - Brazillian Ministry of Communication [MdC] BRUSA DAY
Why my VP is awesome
I thought I’d also add some bro-love to my VP in this article.
Jefferson Locke has been nothing short of outstanding this term … I couldn’t of asked for a better Vice President! He is an absolute joy to work with day in and day out and he’s helping prove to people that the Vice President position is not longer just a worthless title that is used to garner votes!
He’s been writing articles to help keep you informed while simultaneously offering olive branches to people such as the eUS Military. He has not once failed me in anything I’ve asked of him, and instead completes it as soon as possible … Exactly what should become expected of a VP. The old days of a useless VP has passed … and people who can follow JLo’s lead should be highly sought after for the position in the future.
So send him some love and thank him for his extraordinary work, I know I certainly do on a daily basis and I pray to DIO that he makes a run for President at some point in the future, because with the experience he’s gaining daily for each department in the executive, and his natural ability to converse with the public and be such a likeable character, he’d make a great PotUS!
That’s it for this article, I plan on having one out BEFORE Congress elections with more news and updates from the government.
Also, I know I don’t always adhere to what I’m about to say, but I do try – This is just a game. Try to be respectful and polite to people, try to remember there are other people on the other side of the screen who, while not having the same opinion as you, are just trying to do the same in keeping the USA safe.
I mean, I don’t always agree with Bia … Ichabod … Even Oblige. But I certainly don’t hate them … I am polite to Bia, I don’t really speak to Ichabod … and Oblige, well we sort of have a dig at each other constantly but we keep it civil. Why? Because they are people at the end of the day and they have feelings just as much as you and I.
Except Ajay … He deserves to be hated on for his actions …
Keep it chillin eAmerica!
