I agree but it should be on private property only.

The reason is because I have personally seen how much money goes back to the police department now that marijuana is becoming legalised in Canada. Colorado, which already did it, was a small state but it saved around 900 million dollars I believe.

After the capture and trial of notorious bleep Colin Calder, who was convicted of the bleep of over 50 women in the past two years a debate has emerged on how he should be punished.

1: “That psychopath should be castrated,” says bleep victim advocate Sarah Hicks. “That’s the only punishment that can ensure the agony he put those women through will never be repeated. Additionally, it will provide some small measure of justice to the victims, and ensure that the other monsters out there think twice before attacking women! Why protect the offenders? They gave up their rights when they decided to destroy the lives of others!”

2: “I understand that this is a terrible time for the poor victims in this case,” says defense attorney Stella Pavlov. “However, the answer is not to revert back to the Dark Ages. Instead, we must focus on rehabilitation of all criminals in our prison system.”

3: “Everyone knows re-education is a waste of money, we shouldn’t go soft on these crooks!” says CEO Belinda Wall of the People Trading Corporation. “Simply place all rapists and criminals in FliplineForum into forced labor under the management of our company to serve out their sentences. When we’re through with them, they won’t even think of jaywalking, much less harming another person. We get free labor, and these crooks get put straight. Everybody benefits... well, except the crooks.”

A human who attacks at women and not only does he do this but also (it's better not to mention it) should not be deemed or called a human but beast.

It doesn't necessarily have to always be the fun option; but of course, if the majority of forumers vote hilarious options, then it'll be that.

The issue is that people genuinely support that...

A human who attacks at women and not only does he do this but also (it's better not to mention it) should not be deemed or called a human but beast.
No, they are still humans, and deserve to be treated as such.

The latest “Harry Potter” book to hit schools across FliplineForum has stirred up the greatest controversy yet.

1: “I quite enjoyed the book, until I got to the part where Harry summons evil demons to do his bidding,” says religious leader Brenda Gibson. “Now that’s just wrong. We need to restore some sense to this debate, by which I mean we should remove this book from the shelves, salt it thoroughly, and burn it.”

2: Teachers union President Gene Merkel says, “Come on, the book is fantasy! And it’s a damn good read. I’d like the government to issue a statement of support for our teachers and librarians, so kids can enjoy good books without interference from religious wackos, like Christians.”

New poll! Vote.

Issue No. 3 Results: Option 2

Results:

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller.

It’s time for the government to allocate spending for the coming year, and as always, special interest groups are keen to have their say.

1: “The state of the education system is, in many areas, simply frightful,” says Teachers Union leader Jamil Doolittle. “And even where we are doing well, we could do better. I appeal to the authorities for a substantial boost in funding. Remember, the children are our future.”

2: “We won’t have a future unless we improve police numbers and rebuild the military,” says General Natalia Lee. “Oh, it’s all well and good to have your fancy education and your nice cars, until some tinpot dictatorship decides to invade. And don’t pretend like there aren’t any of them in our region. Our number one priority has to be security.”

3: “Education is nice, but Health and Social Welfare are more important,” says celebrity social worker Waylon Savage. “This is where the people who really need government help are: the marginalized of our society. If we don’t help them, what kind of a nation are we?”

4: “Hey, I’ve got a crazy idea,” says noted libertarian and bird-watcher Boris Bach. “How about the government stops taking so much tax from people? Give us a tax cut and we’ll buy the things we need ourselves. People need to be weaned off the government teat!”

Issue No. 24 Results: Option 4

Results:

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes.

Far-right-wing Nazi supporters plan to stage a rally in the city center tomorrow, giving voice to their violent, racist views.

1: “Frankly, I’m appalled that the government can even consider allowing this travesty to go ahead,” says prominent Jewish personality Weena Cohen. “We can’t let these animals broadcast their message of hate. Surely FliplineForum is too civilized for that.”

2: “It’s exactly because we’re civilized that we must let the demonstration proceed,” says free speech campaigner Cindy Kamen. “We may not like what they have to say, but in this society, people have the right to argue whatever political view they want, no matter how hateful, selfish, or stupid it is.”

Issue No. 22 Results: Option 2.

Results:

The tenet of free speech is held dear.
FliplineForum's Political Freedoms rose from Superb to World Benchmark.

Acclaimed yet controversial thespian Brian Venkman elicited shock (and not coincidentally, more than a little publicity) after performing Hamlet with the severed head of his recently deceased uncle taking the role of ‘Yorick’ in lieu of the usual fake skull. A debate has begun over proper respect for human remains, and whether the general public should be allowed to own them.

1: “DAH-ling, when I play the Oedipal Prince I want your rapt attention!” explains the pretentious actor, shaking his uncle’s left femur at you for emphasis. “Did not the jester’s head held aloft in my hand both capture and captivate your gaze? Was I not momentarily a solitary tableau vivant to behold and admire? A replica would have lacked authenticity, and the Art demands authenticity! Owning human bones should be perfectly legal for all, as should gathering any unclaimed remains. My wondrous panoply of accoutrements is not complete without these fragments of mortality!”

2: “I agree that owning cadavers should be legal, but it should be restricted solely to members of the medical and scientific community with stringent regulations to establish proper consent and to safeguard the proper use of the remains,” recommends Khethelo Coulson, a medical student and keen anatomist. “Human specimens are needed by archaeologists, doctors, transplant surgeons, researchers and the like. Letting a liver rot underground is just a waste.”

3: “What you people are failing to see is the enormous market gap!” giddily giggles entrepreneur Prudence Khan, gesturing and gesticulating at a nearby graveyard. “There’s a fortune of Flipcoins here in buried treasure! Let people pre-sell their future remains to forward-thinking companies, or let relatives do the same with the recently deceased, and we can turn cold stiff bodies into cold hard cash! Everybody with any body wins! The bereaved can dry their tears with banknotes, while we make accessories from real human ivory, and handbags from the finest human leather! Hmm... Leader, has anyone ever told you what lovely skin you have?”

4: “HERESY!” screams Really Revered Reverend Yuri Rios, who claims to be an ordained cleric of a religion you’ve never heard of. “Have all of you lost your minds? Do you understand what you are saying? When people die, they must be respectfully buried whole, otherwise in the afterlife they will be fragmented! Would you like to spend all eternity as a pile of loose body parts? I’m sure I wouldn’t! Do you want the restless shades of the dismembered haunting you? I’m sure I don’t! The dead must be allowed rest in peace, not pieces!”

Issue 728 Results: Option 1

Results:

Scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards.

When media boss Ian Tivruski green-lighted a new Brancalandian animated series for the Fliptonian Kids Network, he thought he was commissioning a delightful children’s show about metal-working amazons who knit cozy jumpers for their grandkids. As it turns out, the surprisingly explicit animation Sword Heroins: Love Needle has caused a lot of confusion amongst young viewers, and upset many parents.

1: “Innocent children’s minds need to be protected from such corruption,” declares noted moral guardian Maria Polytunnel. “To achieve this, we should set up a Children’s Regulatory Animation Panel, with me as its fully-paid leader, of course. We can then deem what is and what is not suitable for broadcast.”

2: “Should we blame these images on TV? No! Blame Brancaland!” declares angry mother Sheila Brelufski. “We should send tanks, and planes, and soldiers to the Branclandian borders, threatening war unless they stop making this filth!”

3: “I don’t get why people are complaining, to be honest,” dissembles Tivruski defensively. “Clearly, we added ‘Sword Heroins’ to our line-up to educate children about the dangers of peer pressure, drug abuse, and challenging everyone you vaguely dislike to a duel. Let us broadcast what we like when we like, even if it does challenge the tastes of some of our more easily offended viewers. Stand up for free speech, and endorse our decision, Leader.”

4: “I think we’re ignoring a broader issue here,” bemoans frustrated animator Parker Stonetrey, “which is that animated art forms are never taken seriously enough to be considered anything more than kiddie fare. I say that we develop FliplineForum’s artistic vision and creativity by subsidising adult animation. When people think FliplineForum, they should think Hentai!”
