It’s mandated by the most religiously observed custom that all Takarans be “a bit of a pain in the neck” to someone before they’re legally recognized as adults.

Takarans who only manage to achieve that status to humans are regarded as embarrassments to their family, but they still technically count as having observed ancient tradition.


#61167

No. It means she’s in charge of administering, equipping, and paying for the fleet. She doesn’t hold a military command.

The Holts were ennobled at the beginning of the Third Altrichs, the Rusches a bit later.


#61168

So she’s at a position which does stuffs like a clerk in Grenadier Square confirms the papers of the commissions, the construction of ships, deployments and how many marines to be transferred and assigned to which ship etc. etc. ? Now that’s some heavy liftings when you are in charge of the paper works for a fleet with over 200 ships.


#61169

How many political parties are there in Takara? And which are the largest ones? I vaguely recall you saying Maximilian vam Holt has a dispute with the Imperial Intelligence, if that’s the case, does II support a political party that opposes Cassius’ father, or did the vam Holts always oppose the II since their ennoblement?

Edit: Also what is the oldest (distinguished) family in Takara right now?


#61170

Should @idonotlikeusernames be worry about her ? She not going to show up unexpectedly and carry a certain elf off bride style. :wink:


#61171

Seems like the main difference is that the Representatives are the more powerful chamber of the Canadian Parliament where it is arguable the Senate in the US due to the confirmation process.

Montana and Wyoming are overrepresented in terms of population but they are also some of the largest states by land area. There are other states that are overrepresented just because you can’t give half a Representive a seat. Alaska and Vermont for example are almost as bad in the electors per population ratio as Wyoming.


#61172

I don’t think so, since she’s stuck behind her Butean wooden desk doing the paper works that will keep her busy for weeks.


#61173

It was a joke and a reference to this
richard%20gere

Cause she in the navy


#61174

She can probably spare time from being Secretary of the Navy (or the equivalent elsewhere) to run off with Cassius if she wants.

Of course, she might think that he likes humans too much.


#61175

She’s technically with the navy, since she’s the one in charge of the papers and files

Are you saying that Cassius might introduce her to us?!! She’ll stay clear off of this I’m sure, since she’s in a very important position in the imperial navy.


#61176

She likely stay away from him if he known to be sleeping around the MC. Since they consider relationships like that to be taboo and bestiality


#61177

No, I’m saying that she might not share his opinion of subelves like the PC.


#61178

That’s one way to put it. Our Senate is effectively powerless, and was designed to be that way.

Land area is irrelevant if nobody lives on it.


#61179

I believed that she place her esteems as a important member of the Vam Rusches and a member of the Imperial Navy more higher and serious than Cassius does as an ambassador, since Cassius? He really does act like a playboy fooling around in some parts.


#61180

“Some” parts?

I have no idea how seriously or otherwise she takes her responsibilities, but Lord Cassius’s irresponsibility and his relatively friendly (for “this is an American as written from a Canadian perspective” definitions of friendly) attitude towards humans are not necessarily linked.


#61181

I’m not sure I agree. Geography is going to inherently create communities of interest. Wyoming forinstance being important in the cattle industry.


#61182

I have no idea as well, since all that we only know a few moments ago is that She and Cassius had participated in joint manoeuvres before, so there might be a chance that they both once messed around before, as for the details and the truth? Only time can tell.


#61183

Which is still ultimately about the people who live on that land, not the land itself.

I’m not saying the flyover states shouldn’t be represented, I’m saying they shouldn’t be able to hold the places where most of the people live hostage.


#61184

I agree with sentiment just not with the interpretation of the hostage situation. If we are talking specifically about the last election cycle it was states like Pennsylvania with “costal elite” fortresses like Philadelphia that overturned he will of the popular majority, not Wyoming.


#61185

In the context of swing states? Yes. In the context of the reliable, popular foundations which allowed states like Pennsylvania and Michigan to become tiebreakers in the first place, no.
