The Illegitimate government of Gjorka

Gjorka Times - The National Social Party leaves the National Coalition

Although it had been rumored and speculated for weeks, the National Social Party officially announced they are leaving the National Coalition. Party Leader Alexei tabor citied Gjorka United's lack of discourse with their fellow coalition members and the routine nature with which they ignore their coalition partners. The primary example of this he highlighted was the 2022 Gjorka City summit held a few weeks ago. Tabor ripped into Morris's decision to hold the summit calling her an "elitist hack" and the newly founded Ostlandet Union a "ponzy scheme for the globalists to uproot Gjorkan values". Tabor's press conference announcing the withdrawal lasted three hours in which he went into several deep rants about Gjorka United, Carter Morris and the Ostlandet Union. The move to leave was praised by Gjorka United's more right-wing members several of whom have considered leaving Gjorka United themselves over the summit

Gjorka City Daily - Morris's Approval Rating continues to climb

The official bi-weekly poll conducted by the Gjorka Times was released today, and Morris's popularity continues to climb following the Gjorka City Summit. Now sitting a 41%, an 11 point boost from where she sat at the last poll. Overall the summit was praised by centrist members of Gjorka United, and the Pink-Green coalition while being condemned by the Right-wing in Gjorkan politics. A critical point in the 2021 Gjorkan presidential election was Morris's distancing herself from the right-wing base that got her nominated. It seems that trend has continued into her presidency as the Gjorka City summit further alienates this base. Regardless, it seems the founding of the Ostlandet Union was a positive move within Gjorka at large, and as solidified a somewhat positive view of Morris within Gjorka. 

Nuacht Polaitíochta Anois (Political News Now) - Ostlandet Union getting started

The Council of Ostlandet held their first meeting earlier this week, and began setting up this new Ostlandet Union. Morris appointed Martin Kittle, former presidential candidate and high-ranking Gjorka United member, and Cara Lennon, Ambassador to the TCN under Vanderburg, to be Gjorka's representatives on the Council. Morris announced she choose Lennon to held bridge the political gap in Gjorka. Lennon was first appointed by Joe Wallace to serve as the Ambassador to Paleocacher, and retained said position under Joseph Marcos despite being a critic of his foreign policy choices. She was then nominated by Roman Vandeburg to serve as Gjorka's representative to the TCN where she did for all ten years under his term. Due to this significant experience, Lennon was nominated by Gjorka to serve as the Speaker of the Ostlandet Council. She managed to win the Speakership 10-5 over Shauna O'Mangan from Paleocacher. Finally, the Gjorkan representation managed to successfully nominate Rosa Ryan to serve as an independent member of the Council. Ryan was once a vice presidential nominee in 2016, and a front runner for the 2021 Gjorka United presidential nomination. However, her campaign was tanked by scandals of possible same-sex relationships and terminated pregnancies. Anyhow, it appears Gjorka has retained significant power within the OU as it retains control over both the Speakership and the Presidency.

If Rakeo defeats Andaluzia tomorrow and Lyoa loses to Creeperopolis on Monday, Rakeo is assured a spot in the knockouts, but if it'll in the single quaterfinal match or straight to the semifinals depends if they win the group.

As it stands right now, if Rakeo beats Andaluzia, a draw against Salisford is enough to win the group, but if Rakeo loses to Andaluzia, Rakeo has to beat Salisford to win the group.

If Rakeo loses to both Salisford and Andaluzia, Rakeo might still make it in if Lyoa loses and Rakeo's goal differential is better than Andaluzia's, or Rakeo beats Andaluzia on any of the other tie-breakers, but Rakeo can still fall behind Andaluzia and not make the group stage.

If Lyoa wins, Rakeo has to either hope Sequoyah beats Cospania, Sequoyah draws Cospania and Rakeo draws or beats Salisford, or if Cospania wins, Rakeo has to beat Salisford at least by 2 goals more than Cospania beat Sequoyah. (assuming Rakeo already beat Andaluzia)

Creeperopolis wrote:Dear The Serene State of Quebecshire,

It has come to my attention that you have voted "Grass? What's that?" on our region's most recent poll: "Is Touching Grass Overrated?" (link) as of 11:38:44 a.m. PDT (2 days 5 hours into the poll's 3 day period). That is great and all, as I myself have also voted for that same option, however, your choosing of the option presents itself some problems which I have come across.

You are quite notable on the regional Discord of telling others and even myself to "touch grass" on multiple occasions for things which we have said or done. Mr. Shire, how could you be telling us to touch grass, if even you yourself do not know what grass is? We may have conflicting understandings of the definition of "grass", or perhaps you are referring to a different "grass" entirely. As I search for "grass" on Wikipedia, the article for "Poaceae" is where the term grass redirects: "Poaceae (/poʊˈeɪsiaɪ/) or Gramineae (/ɡrəˈmɪniaɪ/) is a large and nearly ubiquitous family of monocotyledonous flowering plants commonly known as grasses. It includes the cereal grasses, bamboos and the grasses of natural grassland and species cultivated in lawns and pasture. The latter are commonly referred to collectively as grass."

You may, however, be referring to a different grass, either on Discord or here on NationStates. If you do not mind, would you please clarify what you are referring to when you say "grass". (The following are from the Wikipedia article "Grass (disambiguation)" which lists different things which are referred to as "grass"):

Poaceae (most commonly referred to as grass)
Other plants, unrelated to Poaceae, including: Blue-eyed grasses, China grass, Cotton grass, Deergrass (Rhexia spp.), Deergrass (Trichophorum spp.), Ditch grass, Eelgrass (Vallisneria), Eelgrass (Zostera), Golden-eye grass, Good Friday Grass, Goosegrass, Grass (cannabis), Grass of Parnassus, Knotgrass, Mondo grass, Nutgrass, Pepper grass, Sawgrass, Scurvy-grass, Scurvy-grass sorrel, Seagrasses, Sleeping grass, Whitlow grass, Xyridaceae

I can deduce that some of the above options you are likely not referring to on Discord, as some of the above options would either be illegal to touch or impossible to touch, such as people or programing languages. On NationStates, however, you may be referring to any of the above items which you have not heard of. You clearly must know at least one (1) interpretations of the word grass, and know that at least one (1) more exists for you to tell me to "touch grass" on Discord and say, essentially, "I do not know what grass is" on NationStates.

Or, perhaps, you are telling me and others to "touch grass" in bad faith, because you may not actually know what grass is if your statement on NationStates is the truth. You may be abusing your position of power as Consul of the Republic and server administrator to berate others on the server and make yourself seem to be on an ever higher position of authority than you already are (argumentum ab auctoritate).

Additionally, "touch grass" is commonly used as an insult on the internet. According to Urban Dictionary: "["Touch grass" is] used when someone is doing something weird, stupid, or pointless. It means they need to come back to reality, they need to get some fresh air and get back in touch with how the real world works." This can be interpreted as quite rude and offensive by some people, and its use should be avoided at all costs (ad hominem).

If this is the case, you may also be disappointed and/or dissatisfied with my habits, values, and way of life, and are telling me to "touch grass" in the hopes that I will all of a sudden adopt your own habits, values, and way of life, or how you see the correct way to life and things to think are. This is also deeply rude and disrespectful, as everyone has their own individual habits, values, and ways of life, and just because you do what you do, does not mean that your's are superior to mine or others (moralistic fallacy).

In conclusion, I believe that you may most probably be telling me to "touch grass" in bad faith, due to your position of power enabling yourself to do so, your usage of the phrase to criticize my character, and your belief that your interpretation of what one should believe and do in life are superior than to mine. I believe that you should seriously and deeply evaluate your usage of the phrase and reflect on how you can improve as a person on how to improve this situation in the future. I also request that you refrain from telling me and others to "touch grass" as it came come across as very rude, inconsiderate, and condescending.

Thank you Mr. Shire for reading my evaluation of your actions and I hope to see you improve in the future.

I consider this a [bad]post, or a crude grab for attention. For one, "touch grass" is a phrase that is quite simple and meant to enrage only those who allow themselves to be enraged, it is NOT an argument. Even if it was an argument, fallacies do not make the POSITION fallacious. Copy-pasting from Wikipedia serves to only impress the demagogue-prone. I hope you consider removing it. Thank you.
