For the past week, the small community of Greenville in Northern PAX HEARTLANDIA has been plagued with an unexpected blizzard. With citizens stranded in their homes without electricity, the township is urging you to evaluate communication priorities.
When did I assimilate Greenville?
Congratulations to the new 10000 Islands Ambassador to Texas. Free Guns For All, aka Free Crossbows For All! We are sure they will do an admirable job as Ambassador and they already feel like part of the Texas family. Please join us in giving them a big ol' Texas Howdy!
**** 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:
"The Rule of Law
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Human Rights Strength: Strong Proposed by: Sciongrad
Description: The General Assembly,
Reaffirming its commitment to fair and equitable treatment of all individuals"...
<see the General Assembly for full text and to vote>
Sigh, we have a Human Rights Resolution. Have we mentioned how much we hate human rights resolutions lately? This one is yet another one of those "no duh" resolutions that is completely unnecessary. Basically, it says if you write laws then everybody has to follow them, governments included. Duh. We are just going to pull an armadillo move and roll over and play dead on this one. 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 flat on the last GA vote -- Repeal "Convention on Execution" -- which was passed after gaining 54.09% 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 0 FOR and 5 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 Tuesday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00am Texas Time on Wednesday the 1st. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 7075 Votes AGAINST: 1354
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
Happy Memorial Day Texas! For those who may be unaware, Memorial Day is a patriotic day to honor American Soldiers who have given their lives for their country. It is a legal holiday in most states. Flowers and flags are placed on graves of soldiers. Many organizations march in military parades and take part in special programs. Memorial Day originated during the Civil War. So remember your dead Texans, especially those who have died in the recent conflicts around the world. Please fly your flags at half-mast.
My flag is already saluting
a few days ago my mom showed me a couple of pictures that her sister from Florida sent her of my cousin on patrol in Afghanistan, so I thought of him since he gets to do a cool job that I wish I could do but never can because of my slight hearing loss
