Texas Regional Message Board
Happy Texas Independence Day! For those unaware of the meaning of this day, on March 2, 1836, Texas declared its independence from Mexico and became the Republic of Texas. History was forever changed. For ten years, from 1836 to 1846, Texas existed as a separate and unique nation. In Texas, March 2 is an official state holiday - Texas Independence Day. Each year, there are numerous parades, festivals and even a complete historical reenactment of the event. Happy Texas Independence Day y'all!
And, Congratulations to Lt. Uhura of Star Trek, our Ambassador to Wysteria, on her taking of the Silver Medal in the Giant Slalom in the Cross Regional Games - Winter Edition over in scenic Herzil, Wysteria. Additionally, Hans & Franz, The Sausage Kings of NewTexas slept late today in the Alpinism Event so as to be able to catch Jean Claude Van Damme compete in the Giant Slalom. They did not realize he would make it into the Evening Run and now have to hike all night.
Blue Booted Bobbies, ooh, ahh! Did you really take that orange and blue ocean scene? If you are not a professional photographer, you should consider a career change. That is a spectacular shot!
A linguist, a singer, and a skiier. Miss Uhura is now officially a triple threat.
OMG, when did the UI change?
No, that is one of the stock photos. My four photos are all from Bermuda. One is the Orange House, the other is the Blue House, then there is the one of the capital, and one of the fort next to the docks where the large cruise ships dock.
**** New WA Resolution Notification *****
There is currently a new Security Council Resolution at vote. When expressing your opinion, please note which Resolution it is for. And remember Texans, your individual vote does count!
The new Resolution is called:
"Repeal "Liberate Democratia"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Category: Repeal Resolution: SC#11 Proposed by: Jean Pierre Trudeau
Description: WA Security Council Resolution #11: Liberate Democratia shall be struck out"...
<see page=sc for full text>
Oh boy, we have yet another Repeal! Yay! This one passed in November, 2009. Texans were all split over hair-splitting becuase the original author copied another Liberation Resolution and changed the name. So freaking what? Liberations should just be a form with a name of who to liberate anyway. Subsequently, Texas sided with the invaders and voted 5 for and 6 against. It passed anyway, but was really a stain on our honor. So, let us get rid of this becuase the invasion is over, the liberation is over, the region has been refounded by invaders and frankly, we are tired of hearing about it. As a reminder, the issue here is the REPEAL of the existing law. A vote AGAINST this Resolution means you are in favor of the existing law and do not want it repealed. A vote FOR this Resolution means you want the law off the books. NewTexas will go on record as FOR on this Resolution. This is only the opinion of NewTexas. We look forward to other Texans' opinions and comments on this Resolution. If good arguments to the contrary are made, we will reconsider our position.
The Texas response was down on the last SC vote -- Commend Luna Amore -- which was passed after gaining 86.17% of the vote. As a reminder, all we are looking for is a simple 10% of Texans to say one way or another. We are a force for change in the WA. Every vote counts! There were 3 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 3 FOR and 0 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were unanimous! Yay!
NewTexas has already voted on this Resolution in advance of publicly expressed opinions. We did this at the urging of many leaders in the World Assembly. As we have been saying for years, Texas is a force in the WA. Many feel that Texas can influence the overall vote if it votes first. There is an observed "lemming effect" that occurs during voting. Apparently a large number of votes are cast based on whichever side of the issue is leading when voters vote. Therefore, to get the most impact from our vote, we are now voting first. We will re-evaluate our original vote at midnight prior to the current vote. As always, we are open to suggestions on how we should vote on this Resolution to most accurately reflect opinion of the populace. Comments are welcome from all nations, both WA Members as well as those who are not. Please make your voice heard on the current issue either on this message board or on our offsite message board. But, by all means, please vote on the WA Page!
If you would like to take part in shaping the world you live in, please vote. Voting is a right and a privilege, please consider using it. And, if you are not a member of the World Assembly, we strongly encourage you to join.
All WA Member nations please vote. Please make your opinions known in Texas by 11:00pm Thursday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00pm Texas Time on Friday the 6th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 2206 Votes AGAINST: 5889
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
