**** 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:
"World University for Peace
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
Category: Education and Creativity Area of Effect: Educational Proposed by: Wrapper
Description: RECOGNIZING that the WA, as a body of nations, should stand for peace"...
<see page=ga for full text>
Peaceniks of The World Unite! The World Assembly wants to build World Universities for Peace in your nation and every WA nation of The World! Um, no. Just, no. 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 up on the last GA vote -- Repeal "Rights and Duties of WA States" -- which was defeated after gaining only 30.08% 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 7 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 0 FOR and 7 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were unanimous! Yay!
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 Monday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00pm Texas Time on Tuesday the 22nd. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 1124 Votes AGAINST: 1963
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
Wooo! It is Saturday breakfast time again! And it is one of our favorites - ToastFest! For your fine dining pleasure, today will be toast, toast, toast and more toast! Oh Yeah! For the ultimate toast experience, we will start right off with traditional white bread, soft and spongy right out of the plastic bag! This is the stuff toast dreams are made of. These pillows of bready goodness are toasted until golden brown on one side, slathered in farm-fresh, Genuine Texas Angus butter, fresh-churned daily and lightly toasted on the other side just until the butter bubbles and browns giving it a nutty deliciosity that is unmatched in any other breakfast treat. For the health conscious, we have brown whole wheat bread. For the gonzo health nuts, we have Seventeen Grain Nut Loaf with all kinds of healthy grassy things ground up made into a bread of sorts that can be toasted. Of course there will be thick slab Texas Toast either toasted in the oven or grilled on the flat top. We also have super-yummy cinnamon toast and cinnamon-raisin bread toast. For the funky-inclined, we have rye bread toast, pumpernickel toast, rosemary bread toast, Challah bread toast and English Toasting Bread toast. That English Toasting Bread is really good stuff and comes highly-recommended for the true toast connoisseur. The chefs just keep popping out so many various breads, if you don't see something you like, just ask. Onto the toast toppings! Woo, we are swooning now. If you thought that was a lot of toast, there are almost more topping for toast, glorious toast. Nature's Finest Food! We will just start listing them - plain ol' Buttered Toast (salted or no), Flavored Butter Toast, Peanut Butter Toast, Peanut Butter and Jelly Toast, Nutella Toast, Honey Toast, Cheese Toast, Applesauce on Toast, Peanut Butter and Banana Toast and Peanut Butter and Apple Toast. Jellies and other condiments include the ubiquitous grape, strawberry preserves, banana compote, orange marmalade, blueberry preserves, blackberry jam, guava, persimmon and pomegranate preserves. Not into sweet toppings for your toast? We have cream gravy, with or without the chipped beef. The offerings are mind boggling for this wonderful breakfast food that is awesome any time of the day! No Juice Bar today. Start your day off the right way; munch out and go back to sleep. Of course, The Never Ending Urn of Coffee is full and ready to help you wash it all down. Texas coffee doesn't get much better. Enjoy Texas! You know you want to!®

Dude, what are we chopped liver?
Havensky University already offers extensive courses in diplomacy and international relations. Why would we build a competing institution?
If anything; I'm surprised they didn't just build it as an extension of the WA. It couldn't be that hard to add a classroom to The Strangers Bar.
We found the "right" way to handle the "lovely" blockade New Austin Transportation department decided to put in Windsor Rd.
We extended The Embassy CHECK UP lines 100meter into the street, from both exits.....making it a DC Zone
Mmm, toast! I'll have a Seventeen Grain Nut Loaf plus a "Challa" bread toast, topped with some finest Nutella and honey. On top of that, some blueberry preserves and orange marmalade would do good. A nice cuppa will also do. Thanks, BT!
Happy Easter everyone....hope you all have a blessed and joyfully weekend
Leave barbecued Easter eggs for the Texans.
* guesses those would be good with Rooster Sauce *
*plants bombs in easter eggs to eliminate enemies of state* hope this wont backfire like last time...
Your horrible what if a little kid picks it up then blame your in the news for all the wrong reasons.
