Yeah, that is a great Idea , especially since you can check how well your predictions were true.
Beside giving the event an extra Oomph on Texas Part....
********Attention to my fellow Texans********
For those of you who do not already know this our Governor has won a major award. It was a much deserved, overdue recognition of his dedicated and tireless work not only to Texas but also to the NS World as a whole to preserve freedom near and far. Thank you Big Tex for all you do!!! The press release from the FRA reads as follows:
The Lifetime Achievement Award for Dedication to Defending
The award given to the nation who has been a dedicated servant to the defender cause for many years, often sacrificing different luxuries in order to help as much as they can. This year we have seen a very large pool of nominations for the award, all of them deserving of the honour in their own right. Unfortunately, only the nomination(s) with the most votes can win and this year we see one player pull ahead convincingly. Even before nominations or voting began this player was being touted as a shoe-in and you would be foolish for writing him off. I have had the pleasure of working with him on some of our larger missions recently and I am very pleased to present NewTexas with the award. Congratulations to him!
Congratulations BigTex on your shiny new award! You definitely deserve it.
What award did Tex earn? Sorry, just missed that-
How could you miss Big Tex Award International Lawthat was all over the News Channels for 1.5 days(RMB).... & in the Newspapers (Forums) for almost a week

**** New WA Resolution Notification *****
There is currently a new General Assembly 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:
"Responsible Armaments Trading
A resolution to slash worldwide military spending.
Category: Global Disarmament Strength: Mild Proposed by: Sciongrad
Description: The General Assembly,
Reaffirming its position of international peace and goodwill"...
<see page=ga for full text>
Great! Yet another Resolution that attempts to control the export of armaments. This one is new in that Point 6 calls on sellers of all kinds to become mind-readers "to suspect" all kinds of stuff that may result in no sale. The whole Resolution revolves around Point 6 and there is nothing quantifiably substantive in there. It would take incredible insight and forethought and research to determine many of the things the author would like you to take into account. Arms trading would virtually grind to a halt, which may be the hidden agenda. We are not going for it. NewTexas will go on record as AGAINST 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 rate was way down on the last GA vote -- Cultural Site Preservation -- which was passed after gaining 63.11% 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 5 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 3 FOR and 2 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were pretty split on that one.
Note: 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.
All WA Member nations please vote. Please make your opinions known in Texas by 11:00pm Saturday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00pm Texas Time on Sunday the 9th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 1641 Votes AGAINST: 4297
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
and/or any other device that may possess a practical application in military conflict
That's a really broad definition of armaments. Tires, food rations, fuel, medical supplies, forklifts to move cargo, wrenches to fix the vehicles...
The list could go on and on. We are very much AGAINST the Resolution.
The resolution is so broad as to be rendered overreaching at a ridiculous level. Dreiundnuenzig stands AGAINST Responsible Armaments Trading.
