American Union State President

Hm, it'd be kinda funny if we was a resident of the American Georgia and had a Southern accent, you know, trying to fit in and all.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
He's not in any events, or is available as a minister. BUT, unlike Stalin, Hitler and FDR, it's never explicitly stated that he died. He's probably an angry British exile writing newspaper articles somewhere in Ottawa. He started life as a journalist, and will probably die as one.Churchill in KR?! Where?! I can't believe I never played Canada without my favourite bulldog.
God damn enviromentalist. When I want a picture of a factory, I don't want is to be not noticeable because there is no smoke. I want so much smoke, that white people become black, and sun becomes red. I want rivers of god damned molten metal, shaped into huge ass machines which you probably couldn't drive if your hairlines quota was under limit. I want my damn forgeries of MARS not some Euro-*#(# office.Yes actually. :rofl:
You sir speak the truth.God damn enviromentalist. When I want a picture of a factory, I don't want is to be not noticeable because there is no smoke.

The result of the congressional meeting was it had to be said, a foregone conclusion, the week before the funeral having given each candidate plenty of time to marshal their allies and make deals. Foster and Steele both appeared to be doing well, until the Guardian block put their support behind outside candidate Flora Blackford, the ever taciturn Rose having been seen leaving Blackford's room at the Drake hotel the evening before the platform declaration was made public. No record of the meeting exists, but several candidates endorsed her shortly afterwards, and the term 'The Popular Front' became the word used when speaking in reference to the growing coalition. The final nail in the ambitions of 'the Chicago Outfit' as Foster, Steele and their assistant Capone were known was when extremely popular, but outsider candidate Abe Simpson threw his lot in with the Blackford.Louise Bryant said:I dont want to say goodbye
It's so hard to walk away
I know that this feels like the end
Life never seems to let you win
But I'll be back someday
I'm already missing you
But I'm not even gone
In time we'll be together again
And it won't be long
Flora Blackford said:You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: victory; victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival. Let that be realized; no survival for the Combined Syndicates will mean no survival for all that the Syndicates stand for, no survival for the urge and impulse of the ages, that mankind will move forward towards its goal. But I take up my task with buoyancy and hope. I feel sure that our cause will not be suffered to fail among men. At this time I feel entitled to claim the aid of all, and I say, "Come then, let us go forward together with our united strength."
brilliant stuff, really evocative of this world you're constructingAt this point, the wooden ship was shot at by a lone diving fighter than had been painted black for the occasion, incendiary rounds tearing into the material, and setting the ship - packed with flammables - alight in a fierce combustion, that cremated the remains of the Father of the Nation in a spectacle. The roar of the crowds, those who could see anyway was immediate, as the fighter wheeled around and flew toward the city and the airport. The flames continued to burn for about an hour before the ship, finally sank. The ashes of Jack Reed were interred in the cold waters of Lake Michigan, the precise spot unknown to any except the lone pilot, whose identity has never been revealed and there are many conspiracy theories to this day as to who the 'Black Pilot' was.
My thanks. It just came to me in a moment as something suitably alternative to an interment, and we have enough monuments I figure...brilliant stuff, really evocative of this world you're constructing
The deal cut with the military/guardian platform will see Blackford will stick to syndicalist ideals in her policy making, even if personally she doesn't much care for them.At least Flora looks really nice with the military hat. I just hope the economy is still Syndicalist and doesn't lean towards Free Market...
But of course, any explanation that makes you happyWhat is this?
Trying to poison the wildlife of lake Michigan?
Coca-cola hasn't yet been invented, however Atlanta is scheduled to be put into the middle of the Atlantic sometime in mid 1980 :rofl:They'll have mermaid syndicates before they know it.
I ALMOST (hair's breadth) left Marshall as CoAr. However he is not the esteemed Guardian bloc liaison to Blackford and both ingame and out war is not expected to break out. That said, we shall see how Mr. Rose handles it. I think he'd be reluctant to hand in his commission, but can he really do a good job of it?May I ask if you will replace the FoM and the CoAr? Especially the CoAr, unless Rose can handle being Congress Speaker and the Army Commander.
My thanks. I caught myself choking back tears as wrote sections of it. <.< I've really got to get over myselfWow. Funeral of Jack Reed reminds me on funerals of old kings. Very well written!
