Notes
Added Ammendement XII to list.
Highlighted part that was aparently accidentally removed at some point,
Remade the quotes.

crest explanation

because I have been asked about it I thought a new topic would be nice to tell what it means

Ok the Colors, I chose Green Black and Yellow,
Green for Life
Black for Death
Yellow for that reward which waits beyond for you.

the Misshapen Checkerboard
the Checks if you will notice are not even but wave with some being big ond some small, this is because we are all different, no two precisely alike but if we all work together something pleasing to the eye is made.
the border of White and Black are there to give form to the Checkers.

The Green blocks, signify support from many sides, which without support even a pretty house will fall.

The Wheat, Pleanty, with sufficient sustinance even the lowliest of beasts can be great

the Star as the north star guides sailors to their port, the East star guides RPers to our shores

the Square as a Mason a man is taught to always treat everyone on the square, this is where phrases such as Square talk and Square it away ect come from, I figured being Square with everyone was a good idea so I incorporated it.

the Compass, Because it is such a useful tool, there is so much you can do with it, you can measure, calculate distance on a map, draw a circle, it represents the forum itself the place where all things can be done if you have the tool.

The Silly Parety

We the Silly Party have decided that the like minded folk of the East Pacific have decided that there must be something else to do, therefore the S.I.L.L.Y. Party has been created, and soon we will have some words to fill in what the letters in the name mean.

The Silly Party has a Platform.
Yes we do, this Platform is rickity and unstable but it is ours so keep your damn hands off of it.

Health Care
We wont give you Swine Flu, Aids, Cancer, Herpes, Dysentary, Scarlett Fever, Polio, or just about any other disease, nor will we give you Socialist Health Care, but we will make sure that health care is reformed Medical school will be a state managed institution because Doctors are important humanitarians we see no reason that a university should be allowed to get rich off an aspiring physian, therefore we will begin by regulating the cost of Health Related educations and if necessary offer more training for the military medics so that they can become doctors in the service or be further trained after service, our Goal is to just enough physicians to meet demand and not cause a glut.
Malpractice insurance and malpractice will be delt with as well, a common sense approach is best, this insurance is part of why medical care is so expensive,
and the hospitals themselves, they are there to serve you not kill you, medical costs will be delt with.

Gay Marrige
this is an issue that annoys me, as it should not be an issue. the anti gay marriges say that it will destroy the sanctity of marrige, well Gay marrige is the same as witchcraft, a witch only has the power she is believed to has, and Gay Marrige will only destroy the Sanctity as much as you think it will, we have too much to deal with as it is, there fore there are two plans
A) Everyone can get married to whatever they want.
or
B) No One can get married.
simple, the decision will be made you can be assured of it.

The Regional Debt
The East Pacific has accumulated a regional Debt of approxomatly 100,000 posts
and 50 active members, this number is not so big now but it can grow, every day me accumulate a debt of .3 members, after a year this is almost 110 people.
can we afford to be a region of just 20 people? NO the Silly Party proposes the office of Tourisim and Recruitment be reinstituted as a full cabinet position with the director appointed by the Delegate and approved by the magisters or popular vote in no less that 7 days after apointment this director may hire assistants as needed to aid him or her in daily posts on the RMB, and visitations to other regions. all with the goal of spreading to the game what the EP is and what it can do for others.

Crime
simply put, we will excute them if they are supposed to be, we will make sure the punishment fits the crime via the Mikado office (to be created).
no one will get off scott free and we will do it right.

Transportation
Three Words.
The East Pacific MonoRail
oko 4.5 words.

Regional Warming
Since October 05 the East Pacific has seen a steady rise of almost .0348º in temperature we propose that all cars be required to be built using clean Hydrogen where applicable, as well as towing errant icebergs that would normally enter the sealanes to the EP to be cut into ice cubes and distributed to the region.

Employment
We are not gonna do nothing about it,

So there is our Platform, if you like it then IM Loop to join the silly party today.

Honus L. Walrustitty.

Good querry I had actually inteded on the first Silly Conference to decide that.

my belief is that you should educate them early and often.
foreign language should start at 1st grade and be a language that is useful
at 10th grade you weed out the morons (the kids who just go to school to fight ect) by letting them take a partial exam that gives them a Partial credit diploma
and they are then ushered out of school to a 6 month program where they are taught a trade like air conditioner repair or tire recaping and they are put into the work force, or they can take a career military job (max rank Seargent) where they are taught their trades state side until 18 then put into full service. the money you save can be used to better educate the kids interested in learning and bettering themselves.

and I advocate removal of the “Professional type” sports from all schools.
no more 5million JrBacCh’s wasted on coaches while the acedemic side withers.

also I propose we change the international currency to the JrBC or the Junior Bacon Cheeseburger unit.

The silly party in order to bring forth yet more legislative red tape propose a standardised panty program.

We now advocate standardised Panty colors.
Monday, Pink
Tuesday, White with a pink bow
Wednesday, Yellow
Thursday, White with Pink Hearts
Friday, White
Saturday, Optional or Black.
Sunday, Pink with white butterflies or Polka dots.

Men shall be allowed to wear only the following
Briefs, White
Boxer Briefs, Striped, white, black
Boxers, paisley, tartan, primary colors

What aree your views on the colour green?

I always though Green was more indifferent, Blue is laid back and yellow is happy but a little reticent about doing stuff then their kid green is all meh whatever.

pink there is a color. Red is all mad and full of vinegar, white has the rightious indignation, Pink should be out there burning infidels with that kind of upbringing.

But green is the colour of the grass, and the colour of crocodiles. And I wouldn’t want to upset a crocodile.
aah but Crocs are an examplo of Green, they are ambush hunters, ergo they are lazy meh whatevers, and grass just sits there.

Armed forces, The Silly party has always believed that a Military is just like a stick. if you have it you are going to be tempted to hit something with it.
see even this emoticon dhorse.gif is proof of that belief, it has a stick and it hits that dead horse.
this is why when the Silly party wrote the original Confederational document it specifically stated No Military.
The Silly Party still stands by this belief.
