Pfeiffer for President - Back to work

Post by Pfeiffer on Mon Aug 29, 2016 10:28 am

Alright guys, so here's what's up.

Gnilraps said people with a half brain should be in EZC, and since I have harvested multiple brains from my victims over the years, I joined up again. I know Deepchill missed me, even though he won't admit it.

At the same time (really a bit before but who is counting?) I decided to run for President. We need someone who is going to get down into things and make sure the job (such that it is) is getting done. That's me. I work hard as *expletive*. I'm going to make the month efficient and fun. We're going to have all sorts of cool shit going on, and I'm asking that all of you here in EZC consider giving my article/platform a look.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

Article content:


This announcement is brought to you by the Pfeiffer for President Campaign


It's happening, guys.

I have wrestled with this decision for months, if I'm being honest. We've seen President after President walk through the doors of the Oval, excited and full of energy, just to sit down in that comfy chair and do a whole lotta squat.

That changes this month. This month, I'm offering an alternative. Instead of a candidate promising more of the same, a continuation of whatever policies are in place and easy, I'm presenting you with something different.

A President who works.


werk werk werk werk werk

The game is smaller, our country is smaller. We need to recognize this and adapt accordingly. It is my intention to make my cabinet reflective of the type of game I think we need to be playing.

We don't need two people sharing any job. We don't need a large cabinet acting as if they're overseeing the departments we once ran in 2009 and 2010. What we need is what we had in the beginning. People who had a job and did them. If they needed help, they found it, but that never shifted responsibility for the work.

We will have the following 'departments':

Defense
Interior

See how simple that is?

Now, in a 'normal' month, you would have a state department as well. However, in my goal of both streamlining things and in ensuring that work is getting done with minimal signal loss in communication, I will be directly handling our foreign affairs. My friend Wild Owl will lend his expertise in our alliance affairs, and I will abuse my relationship with khotko and ask him to act as a conduit for me with Russia. But I will not in any way abdicate the role of Chief Diplomat.


Hanging with some Russian bros

With the changes to USAF funding, and the lack of any direction at all coming from the current Executive, the first order of business for Defense will be to have a conversation about what the membership (and current leadership) of USAF wants. I will be personally surveying the membership, sending out two messages in my first three days asking for them to respond to a short survey about what they would like to see us do for them. Because that's what it is about. Once we have that data, we will formulate a plan to act on it. Funding will be found, as needed, organization will be created to execute the plan, and then we will get to work.

My hope is that we can center the USAF on training. And not just military training, but on every aspect of both mechanical and meta play in the eUS. We had a series of 'missions' for new players once upon a time, it would not be overly difficult to do something similar in order to get our new people into the fold.

I have not yet selected a Secretary of Defense, that will be done based on the needs of the unit. As a filler, Inwegen will hold the title for the first few days of the administration, since it is the only Constitutionally required role I fill. Once we know what the unit wants, the position will be filled on a long term basis. The NSC will return to primarily being a council of MU leaders. Our larger MU Commanders and their senior staff will have access to the IRC room where the NSC currently 'meets' and that will act as their conduit through which to reach me. 'Orders' (such as they are) will be set by any number of people based on our alliance needs.


Started from the bottom now we here

Interior will be a whole other ball of wax.

I won't be terminating the current leadership there (Civilian Affairs) on day one. I would ask that they stay on for a day or two in order to fully outline for me the last month of their work, so as to give me a more full understanding of what has been going on in recent weeks. I haven't seen much, but I also don't take part in 'new' player activities or programs directly.

Some things which will certainly be different there, but my goal is not to upend any programs which are currently doing good work. The question of the day is which are and which aren't. So we'll sort that out.

I will continue running my 'radio' show on beam, and will create with the eNPR team a schedule providing for three evenings of entertainment each week. I will take two of them most weeks, since eNPR should (and will) have more educational aspects it will take more work to prep and execute. I am going to ask current quasi-host Israel Stevens and eNPR co-founder Cerb to lead up this endeavor. They have known each other for years, and I think together we will be treated to quite the show from these two. How and where we broadcast eNPR will be worked out with whoever owns the eNPR beam account. More on that when it's finalized.


They give me two mics so you can hear me twice as loudly

Media will be the responsibility of my Chief of Staff (to be announced, I'm hoping to finalize that today), since it will primarily be a blurb from me, two pieces from our two departments, and then some sort of trivia/game where I can give away some money. Easy, simple, and out at least twice each week. No more radio silent Presidents. No more 'game nights' nobody knows are happening. Direct and regular communication. Even those who hate me have to admit that I made sure to publish regularly when I was President.

We have, as a country, been resting on our laurels. We've been taking a little break. Letting the hard work of people like Deepchill and his staff in EZC do our job of retention and damage direction. Sure, that's the job of our military units, but it isn't solely their responsibility. The burden rests with all of us, and I am going to see to it that everyone walking around talking about how important they are is contributing to our shared responsibility to get the job done.


The break is over.

This game, and more importantly the community of players we have around the world, has been a part of my life for many years. I don't want to lose this. The admins have made it so that we can't be what we were, but we can be something, instead of this pit of apathy and entropy we have been.

To my friends, thank you for your support and your friendship. I appreciate your support and look forward to working for you once again.

To everyone else, I'm not asking you to like me. I can still be your boogeyman. I can still be the thing you rally against. If you need me to be that, fine. Don't like me. But don't lie to yourselves. When I take on a job, I work hard at it. I am relentless. I will give everything I have to doing it well, and even if you hate me...you know that my ego won't allow me to simply sit on my butt and fail. I have a plan. I am going to see it executed. Everyone will benefit.

With that, I ask for your support in both your party primaries (should you have them), and on the fifth.

I will be hosting a special edition of The Pfeiffer Show tonight, all about the election. We'll cover my plans, my desires, and answering questions posed by the community (in the comments here and in the live chat on beam).

The show will be broadcast on beam, so I can randomly surf around eRep while talking with America. Register on beam and click that follow button so you are alerted when the show goes live. I will be giving out prizes to random viewers throughout every show, and followers get DOUBLE PRIZES. So it's really in your best interest to follow the stream Very Happy

So follow at beam.pro/JSPfeiffer (an official member of Team Clopoyaur - THE CLOPO CREW - watch Clopo at beam.pro/clopoyaur).

I remain

Your obedient servant,


~Pfeiffer

Are you saying that Rainy has not already asked her MU what improvements they would like to see?

Who are you planning on having run Interior?

I didn't receive any sort of poll while a member.

I've received three inquiries about Interior, I will choose from among those interested based on the needs of the department after I've evaluated the currently running programs and staff. If you're interested, let me know. If you know someone interested, let me know.

Not a very bright move Mr Pfeiffer. There is already a very respected EZC member running for POTUS. So why join us when there wont be many votes from here?

You mistake my motives. I joined because Gnilraps made a valid point and I thought it would be fun for a while.

I also don't think many people will give a shit about who is in which MU when they go to vote. And if you do, you're doing yourself a disservice. MU membership prior to the election has nothing at all to do with doing the job of President.

And it's not like I haven't been a member before, I was a Captain a couple times as well.

I wouldn't run if I didn't feel that I was the better candidate.

You are running on a platform that you (and wiggy) are all that is really necessary. Why should I elect you and the old boy network? Because you are just that damn good?

Ignoring that we are in fact that good, that's not my platform at all.

I don't believe we still live in the days of needing a 12-15+ member cabinet. I'm going to have a larger staff than is currently being designated, but I won't be choosing those people until I know exactly what they are doing. Because we're looking at a complete rework of the USAF, I don't want to appoint people to jobs which will very likely change once we've polled the membership and determined our course forward. SoD is listed in the consitution, so I have to fill it, and I know Inwegen will both not break anything, and respond to any and all urgent needs that may arise.

I imagine the DoD will be 3-4 people once fully staffed. Anything beyond that would be overkill, the bulk of the work will be done in unit, and thus fall under the CO to staff.

Interior will be reworked, but until I have the information I can currently not get (how many people request from each program and how often), I don't know what the demands will be. I've requested the data, and been denied. So unless I want to go get an Act of Congress demanding a report, which is a whole lot of work for something I will 100% get if I win and 100% not need if I lose...I'm just going to be prepared for what comes when I take office. I have three people who have expressed interest in helping with Interior programs, and if Comet and Ilene prove both helpful and willing to stay on, they may do so as well.

I'm talking about a top to bottom redesign of the Executive, which requires that we have people who are without a doubt competent on day one...and then we slowly shift the burden to new appointees.

I am promising (and have a record of delivering) increased media, regular in and out of game entertainment in the form of competitions and 'radio' streams, a steady hand in foreign affairs, and a new approach to how we run our government. One I think which is in the best interest of all of us.

I always find it odd when players primarily active in their military unit's leadership and not in politics ask about 'new blood' or decry the 'old boy network'...given that they are often the 'old boys' in their own world. Glass houses, bro.

Thanks for the reply.

I have 6 Congress medals, served as PP in the SFP prior to their gaining top 5, was active in the libs before cg and Ajay ruined it, and messaged party members for uswp under kortunal. I also served as a member of the nsc staff for 5 months. I am not an mu only guy. I took a break from the game and am ramping my activity back up.

I wanted clarification because from what I saw in your article, you were going to be one man showing it.

I could do that for a month, maybe two. Then I'd burn out.

That's not the plan.

Also, I know who you are dude. My point was that it is the normal response. And it makes me laugh. It is rarely an argument which sticks.

Leave a vote and a comment if you want to be eligible to win free stuff during the next Pfeiffer show!

Spoiler:


This announcement is brought to you by the Pfeiffer for President Campaign


Thank you for your overwhelmingly positive response to my first article of this campaign. It is really encouraging, and I sincerely appreciate it.

As the title above suggests, today I will talk about the people working with me for the coming month. As I explained in my first article, I'm not appointing any of the 'filler' positions that have existed previously. There is still plenty for anyone who is interested in learning the ropes and climbing the ladder to do, we're just not going to polish the turd that is the scut work of entry level government jobs.

Now, down to the nitty gritty.

My Vice President is, obviously, fingerguns


bewbs

For those of you here during the previous Pfeiffer Administration, you will remember that fingerguns and I make an excellent team. She does the work, I take the credit.

We enjoy different aspects of the game, and that creates a complimentary system where we are each able to really focus on the tasks before us without needing to worry about duplicating efforts or stepping on toes. She reminds me to stay on task, and I remind her to keep it in her pants once someone starts up some sort of Fed rallying cry I've never been able to fully decipher.

I look forward to working with her, and I thank her for all the support she has and does offer me.

My Chief of Staff will be, Blande.


less bewbs, more cigar...Bill approves, of course

I needed someone who I knew could handle the more 'traditional' role of Chief of Staff, should it become necessary to crack the whip (I don't think it will be, we are putting together a stellar team), but doesn't have so large an ego that they would be ill suited to taking on the role as I've envisioned it for the month. Supportive, engaging, and willing to fill in as needed, where needed, without hesitation.

Blande has the work ethic, he has the integrity, and I look forward to the day he kicks me (or someone else, preferably) out of the Oval Office to serve as President.

Now, the other senior level jobs are a bit more tricky, because until I'm in the job I can't fully assess the situation. I can't know who is best to lead and staff Interior until I know exactly how the current programs are performing, who is utilizing them, etc. That information isn't something I've been able to get, so I will use my time on the election day, should I be leading, and the 'counting day', should I have won, to get that information and more properly assess the situation.

Unless we run into serious personality conflicts, which I don't think will happen, or they are unwilling, I intend on having both Ilene Dover and Comet Academy stay on and work with us. From what I can see, they're putting in the effort and having some fun with their work...and there's no reason to replace them if all they need is some more support from above and a little extra motivation. Both of which are things I'm willing to give them.


I had to use paint to make this, extra effort guys, see?

Defense is going to be more fluid than even Interior. As I said in my announcement, the biggest thing on the calendar is the unit wide survey of USAF. We need to know what they want if we hope to give them the right leadership to accomplish those goals. There are any number of people who have and will be considered once we have more information, and I've spoken with a few of them about where they might fit in for different scenarios. I want to respect the wishes of the unit, they didn't ask to be jerked around the way they have been lately, and so that's how I'm going to staff DoD.

In the interim, I have asked my good friend Inwegen to help us out. Nobody can deny that he is a task master among task masters, and he will be a massive help as we determine the best path forward and begin to chart a course. I owe him a debt for being willing to take this on with me.


still no more bewbs, but holy hell the original House of Cards is magnificent

I will be hosting another edition of The Pfeiffer Show on Friday...and another show on Monday. I will respond to any and all questions here, of course, but if you like the more intimate feel of listening to me and my guests talk about how awesome next month can be...join us. The Friday show will be at 1800 eRep time, and the Monday show will be running off and on ALL DAY on Monday. It's a holiday, I've got the day off of work, it's election day in eRep...why not spend it playing games and having fun with you fine folks? I see no reason not to do so, and am even in talks with my good friend Clopoyaur to arrange for some cross stream games and competitions. It's gonna be a blast, y'all.

The shows will be broadcast on beam, so I can randomly surf around eRep while talking with America. Register on beam and click that follow button so you are alerted when the show goes live. I will be giving out prizes to random viewers throughout every show, and followers get DOUBLE PRIZES. So it's really in your best interest to follow the stream Very Happy

I remain

What's in it for EZC? what can the Gov do to make us even better?

As the top MU in eUSA, we are starting to feel pressured to perform according to the Gov DO all the time. We are still a private MU and we may sometimes (either for fun or even for money) go our own way (remember our attack on Canada a couple of months ago?). How do you feel about that?

Good luck out there.

Nothing is in it for you as a unit, save for the fact that I'm a good President who has a strong track record of working with every MU (even CyberWitch, back in the day) while I'm in the big chair.

As far as making you better, I'd be happy to talk about programs to supplement your own, if you have ideas. EZC is ahead of the curve on air power, and I'm not against asking Congress for a one time outlay to help defray the cost of that program. If you're doing what they SHOULD be doing, then aside from people bitching because they aren't getting a piece of the pie...I see no complaints coming from anyone substantive.

All I can do is try to accommodate the private units in the USA. I have some ideas on what I'd like to do with the war module next month, but they're just that, ideas. I'm open to a discussion about them, or things you may have in mind. We have to work together, so I'm prepared to do just that. How I feel about it is irrelevant, I'm just glad that you are still doing what you're doing.

I'm running again this month, and I figured I'd just bump this as most of it still applies.

Saves us a thread, amirite? Especially if all I was gonna do is post an article link and say nothing else.

Anyone have questions or concerns or whatnot?
