Today I logged in an I get one issue a day, but instead I had two.


Scandal Rocks Rapid Dr3am's Government!

The Issue:
A tabloid magazine, The National Incriminator, has revealed the sordid details of an affair between one of your top advisors, Robert Lotsalovin, and his secretary.

The Debate:
1: "They found out I did WHAT!?" Advisor Lotsalovin says in his morning meeting in your office. "This just can't happen! How can government officials do their jobs properly if we have to work under the constant scrutiny of these idiotic supermarket tabloids? I say tabloid newspapers must be banned, and we must not allow newspapers to speak ill of our government officials... for the good of Rapid Dr3am, of course.."

2: "Unbelievable!" says Reverend Buffy Bush of the local Catholic church. "Our government officials must be held to a higher standard than this! Mr. Lotsalovin must be removed from office and jailed. We cannot allow such disgusting corruption within the halls of justice!"

3: "Whoa, whoa, hey, now..." argues Senator Johan Shiomi. "What happened to Mr. Lotsalovin is no different than affairs that happen all over Rapid Dr3am every day! Before you know it, they'll be after YOUR sexual history! I think what we need to do is take the public attention off of it somehow, perhaps by... oh, I don't know... giving them a tax cut! That'll divert their attention from this momentary distraction just long enough for Mr. Lotsalovin's divorce process to end!"

The Government Position:
The government has indicated its intention to follow the recommendations of Option 3.


Violent Violetists Demand Blood!

The Issue:
Members of a new weird religious cult, called the Order of Violet, ask for the government to appease their mighty god by offering Her a sacrifice of the human variety.

The Debate:
1: "What have we got to lose?" says religious freedoms advocate May Love. "Just cut up a few homeless folk- it appeases this group's bloodthirsty Goddess, gets rid of unsightly bums that drain welfare, and everybody goes home happy."

2: "We must go much further than a few beggars!" argues the overzealous High Member of the Order of Violet, Falala Dodinas. "You must pass a law that everyone’s first born child must be slaughtered, on live TV if possible. Think of the viewing figures!"

3: "You aren't going to listen to these whackjob Violetists, are you?" comments Beth Christmas while leading a prayer group. "Human sacrifices! Surely we're too civilized to permit such barbaric practices! These lunatic fringe groups should be outlawed, their leaders should be executed!"

4: "Who's being a lunatic?" retorts Beth Washington of the Rapid Dr3am Humanitarian Society. "I agree that these practices ought to be outlawed, but instead of sinking to the same level of these fanatics and killing our fellow people, why not simply start a re-education program? Even the worst person can be rehabilitated into a useful member of society, with enough time, care, and lots and lots of funding!"

The Government Position:
The government has indicated its intention to follow the recommendations of Option 4. [/code:1:4cff98807d]

Did you answer yesterdays issue?
26-10-2003, 15:03
You might have the population bug.

Set it on 2 and you will get 4 a day. You population will go up twice as much a day (instead of 5-7mill its 10-14mill)

I aswered yesterdays issues yes.

The population bug still not fixed?

It depends on how many times the game has updated since you logged on.
Remember it updates twice a day, so you may have missed last night's update and thismorning's update.

No, the time that counts for the game is all serverside, it wouldn't be affected by your computer's time.

I was thinking that myself. I know a little something about web servers, and server side scripting after all I do run a php support forum. ;)

I just noticed, I'm also no longer UN deligate of my region it's okay, with me also being founder I can still get things done.
