[DIPLOMACY] Emergency V4 Summit in regards to the specific situation developing in the West and a common foreign policy in regards to the territory formerly known as the United States of America

Emergency VisegrΓ‘d Group Summit in Budapest, Hungary

The Government of Hungary would like to firstly thank the nations of Poland. Slovakia and Czechia for their continual commitment to the principles that bind of, of sovereignty, of capitalism, and of democracy. These are of course sacred principles considering our shared history of occupation under Berlin, and later under Moscow. We can never return to these dark days, instead, we must continue in drawing closer to each other. In the end, we can only depend on our closest friends.

The situation in Europe is rapidly escalating for no real reason. Following the nationalisation of a SINGLE factory in Hungary following German mobilisation on a scale not seen since the early 30s, the British Monarchists have decided to back their Saxon brethren in their quest for world conquest by attempting to sanction Hungary. We do not feel this is acceptable in the slightest. If they disagreed with our decision, they could have taken it to the courts that they hold so dear, yet instead they recklessly continued to escalate.

Hungary is not the first victim of this aggression. Earlier, Germans attempted a smear campaign against the brave Poles who stood up to them first. Who's next in line to be a victim of Germany and their cronies? Shall it be Czechia? Or shall it be Slovakia? We don't know what the German beast is planning, but Hungary is sure of one thing, in this time of crisis, the V4 must continue pulling together, as we did over so many years.

Therefore, on the European front, we would like to propose the following:

Eurasian Proposal Explanation
Combined expulsion of British diplomats from all countries of the V4 until such a time where sanctions are removed from Hungary, in solidarity with Hungary By expelling British Diplomats as a combined bloc, we are clearly showing to the West that while the nations of the V4 are small, we continue to have a large impact on global affairs through our unity as a bloc of nations with separate interests, but a common agenda of prosperity for our peoples. This would of course be a temporary move until the British see sense.
Creation of a Central VisegrΓ‘d bank By creating a "Central VisegrΓ‘d Bank", we are tying our economies together like we have been trying to do for decades now and will allow each of our individual central banks to have access to levels of credit that they might not have had before, further creating prosperity in our bloc.

The Federation was looking to coming into contact with earth However, The Anti Federation [REDACTED] Species of the Planet [Redacted] Got there first. They wanted to establish a military base on an Earth Territory known as The United States of America.

When permission was Denied the [REDACTED] military threatened the Local government with war. The humans agreed to send a diplomat to resolve the problem.

The security footage we got was interesting to say the least.

The supposed β€œDiplomatβ€œ entered the [REDACTED]β€˜s Temporary base of operations and began discussing the terms with the [REDACTED]’s leader in an isolated room.

(the security footage we received had no sound so we don’t know what they were talking about.)

After a few minutes of conversation the human diplomat reached into his coat and feigned sneezing.

(A human reaction to foreign stimuli entering the nasal cavity)

The [REDACTED] Leader began to approach the ”Diplomat” with concern at which point the human pointed a weapon at the Leader and fired it.

After checking to make sure that the [REDACTED]β€˜s leader was dead he ran off and was picked up by an earth vehicle called a helicopter.

With no leader the [REDACTED] Species left earth in a temporary retreat. This gave us enough time to make contact.

However the problem Is we no longer know what to think of these humans and what they call β€œAssassinationsβ€œ

[United States and Canada] How should all 50 states, DC, 14 territories in the US, as well as the 10 provinces and 3 territories of Canada, handle the possible abolition of time change (Daylight Saving Time)?

I am a Canadian, living in the province of Ontario. For context, our province contains about 38% of the country's population (14.6 million out of 38 million). Things like financial market opening and closing times are based on EDT or EST depending on whether Daylight Saving Time is in effect (second Sunday of March to first Sunday of November). This also affects schedules for interprovincial and international transportation (such as planes, trains and buses).

Now, a bill is introduced in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario called the Bill 214, Time Amendment Act, 2020. Ontario's legislative branch is a unicameral one, and so in practice, a simple majority vote of the one and only house will be sufficient for the bill to pass.

This bill appears to have support of the government (Progressive Conservative Party). Considering that we have a majority government in this session, and it appears to also have broad popular support and the support of doctors, so I expect that the bill will be passed.

The problem is that if this bill passes, it will take effect, in theory, on November 7, 2021. It affects all manner of things where multiple jurisdictions are involved.

For example, I work for a company based in California (from my home in Ontario--I have never been to the United States), and their start times vary, but my latest possible start time is 8:30 AM (PST or PDT) which is 11:30 AM (EST or EDT). If California does not have equivalent legislation passed and expected to come into effect, I could potentially suddenly wake up on November 8, 2021 to starting my work day at 12:30 PM EDT (which has never occured ever since I started working here almost 3 years ago).

Given that in broad terms, Canada and the United States are both "decentralized" countries (in that the provinces and states, not the federal governments, handle times) with multiple timezones (that largely align with each other, including the dates on which times change). Is there a way for pieces of legislation to be passed on both sides of the border to take effect on November 7, 2021 and stop the clocks from being turned at 3 AM EST? The reason I ask this is because changes to time, when not done uniformly, cause massive disruptions to everything from transportation to trade (incl

Verne Gagne and bad booking: the death of territory wrestling in the United States

Analyzing bad booking is one of the preferred pass times of us fans on this sub, and a few names typically come to mind when discussing bad booking (I’ll let you use your imagination). But one name that never comes to mind is Verne Gagne, and that shocks me. To put it simply, Verne’s refusal to deviate from dominantly booking wrestlers who were β€œreal athletes” (himself included, naturally) ultimate killed not only the AWA, but the territory system of wrestling in the United States as it had previously existed.

Verne Gagne was handed the world in the form of Hulk Hogan. Hulk Hogan has left the WWF on bad terms (Vince Sr. basically told him that if he did Rocky 3 he’d never work there again) and he was a megastar in the face of the Rocky 3 exposure. Yet Verne Gagne refused to put the AWA world title on Hulk Hogan, and then subsequently ran him out of the AWA with the insulting offer he gave to Hulk Hogan. This beats any other boneheaded booking decision because it set off a chain reaction that killed the entire territory system.

Hogan has said it himself: he was happy in the AWA and didn't actively want to leave, but he wanted the world title and Verne wouldn't put it on him because he wasn't a "real athlete". When it became clear that Verne wasn’t going to put the AWA world title on him, Hogan realized he had nothing more to gain in the AWA and went up north to the WWF. Now you might think to yourself β€œclassic selfish Hogan wanting the biggest piece of the pie”, but if he was the biggest draw in the company, was he not entitled to be rewarded as such?

Think about it: Vince was primed and ready to go national, but he was waiting for that 1 star to build the national expansion on, and Hulk Hogan was that guy. Say what you want about the man, but Hulk Hogan was the ONLY man that Vince could have used to expand the WWF nationally. Vince being able to poach Hulk Hogan from the AWA was one of those 1 in a million, right place at the right time situations where everything had to go right for history to play out the way it did. If you doubt that line of thinking, ask yourself this: who else could have realistically led the WWF's expansion?

Dusty Rhodes? He was arguably the biggest babyface attraction in wrestling at the time, but Vince was NOT going to build his company around Dusty because Dusty doesn't fit his mold of what a wrestler should look like. Ric Flair? Flair was THE biggest overall star in wrestling, but the WWF was a babyface territory, so Flair
