I hear ya! We're preparing our zombie killing squads as we speak.
But how can we, and more importantly, our economy thrive if we can't use our human resources to their fullest potential? Especially with the threat of an impending zombie invasion?
Trying to give Max a good laugh.
Holy Cow, I had no clue I'd end up this high in Endo's this quickly... I've essentially hit a brick wall just short of Stud's number...
**** New WA Resolution Notification *****

Well, we threw the WA a bone on the last touchy-feely General Assembly Resolution, but no más. We love Flora (and her freaky sister Fauna) as much as the next guy, but we are not Lewis and Clark. We are not going to possibly derail the wheels of progress by a bunch of explorers in pith helmets telling us they think they know where a bug is. That is not to say we won't make a "good faith" effort on our own, but we are not going to do it under legislation from the World Assembly. 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 was up on the last GA vote -- Proscription on Living Shields -- which was passed after gaining % 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 6 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 6 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 Friday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00am Texas Time on Saturday the 10th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 5176 Votes AGAINST: 1450
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
Mmm, just got a declaration of war, we've just invited the entire population to spend their holidays here, nice weather, lush forests, long clean beaches and music everywhere. Perhaps they might even move to my country, they're only 10 million anyway.
How can we help?
No help is required, we've got plenty of hotels, hostels and bed and breakfasts for a few million tourists extra. I've sent the dear respresentative of the nation in question a warm invitation to spend their holidays in Dennisov. They might even opt to stay and become citizens, who knows.
I could test ODIN effectiveness, by protecting you
