[SoH] Overview and congressional debates!

Day 2,212, 20:04 by Luis Nordmann

Hello fellow eAmericans,

In the past week of my term as Speaker of the House, a lot of things have happened. Both positive and negative but regardless of that I think we are all getting on the same page now. I’d further like to point out what has been accomplished so far and what is there still to do.

The over moderation issue

I would like to start with the most controversial theme around congress over the past days. In my war declaration to congressional trolling and bad language, I set up too tight a criteria and I admittedly crossed the limits of what is considered reasonable. There were some posts removed that should have not been removed and some threads that were locked that should not have been. After a short discussion between the congressional leadership, we all agreed to set up a different criteria for these sort of things so we can avoid further conflicts. We will still remove trolling and flaming comments that add nothing to congressional discussions, the major difference is really the criteria which will be used to accomplish this will be a lot less strict than it was until now.

Nevertheless I would still like to publicly apologise to the congress for this whole unnecessary mess.

Congressional boards organization

I'd like to thank Rainy Sunday for this whole part. She moved all the past proposals to the archives where they belong. The only proposals that remained in the congressional procedures were the ones from the previous term that I felt they should serve as a guideline for congress to deliberate on future ones. This majorly includes budget discussions.

This clean up makes congress a lot more clean and functional.

Congressional Security

Long ago, when Ronald Gipper Reagan was stalking Bia Pandora, she felt the need of a security tool to ignore his constant messages and rambles. While I know the Party Presidents instruct the candidates they run for congress about this guy and his infamous misdoings, I felt it was my duty as Speaker to remind congress of the use of this tool. Most of the old congressmen will probably just laugh about this, some will even troll RGR back (I would) but not all people react the same way or have the patience to deal with this guys crap. Therefore I have been reminded of this tool created by Mike Ontry and published it in our Legislative branch for congressional use.

Stephen s article in which RGR attempts to bribe him:

Congressional Debates

As stated in my platform, the original idea was to hold this debates on IRC but after giving some thought to this, I decided to tweak it a little. Considering that most of our fellow congressman won't be able to attend an irc debate and that if we have 5 people debating an issue proposed by a citizen we are lucky, I decided to keep the irc debate as a support to the normal procedure through our forums. So if any citizen wants to propose an issue to be discussed, all they have to do is to fill this form here:

After you fill it up, the congressional leadership team will look up to your request and the Speaker will open the discussion for debate in the Public Congressional Proceedings. This discussions will follow the regular congressional protocol and code, the only thing they will have is the name of the citizen who proposed the issue for debate.

I would also like to remind that IRC debates are not mandatory in any way but I would like to encourage all congressmen to join the IRC room #eus-congress as I'd like to encourage all population to join the same room and ask any question they feel like asking to any congressman present or any member of this Legislature.

Congressional Education

Any citizen or potential congress candidate for the upcoming months is encouraged to ask any question on the congressional education thread here:,29317.0.html

I would also like to point out to another article and a few couple threads that should be read by any aspiring congressman here:

[Pfeiffer] More Q&A, IRC and Taylor -

Pfeiffer's Q&A Constitution and Code -,29349.0.html

Pfeiffer's Q&A Congressional History -,29447.0.html

Also please read the constitution of the eUSA here:,3745.0.html

Congressional Citizen Award

After a quite short discussion started by congresswoman Molly Emma in congress on this regards, congress decided to award the Congressional Citizen Award to.... Kemal Ergenekon!!!! Congratulations!

Thank you all and I hope you have enjoyed your read!

Yours truly,

Dr Luis Sentieiro
Speaker of the House

You declared war on trolling?

Trolling is a Dio given right. Check yo self before you wreck yo self.

The eUSA has a bureaucratic model that is the envy of the world

I would maintain your stance on IRC debates. Sure, it means some cannot attend, but that's reality. What a great "performance tension" to inspire people to be active and to keep democracy public!

Would be interested in learning about how you ensure fiscal responsibility and accountability for the proposer use of the massive US Resources. I have a recollection of a time when they were, allegedly, used for inappropriate means


Bless you brother.

going to war with someone is not really a congressional issue per se. Congress receives input in what regards foreign affairs from the State Department. Although congress can indeed vote for an NE proposal, this type of thing is never a congressional initiative.
