**** 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:
"On the Declaration of War
A resolution to slash worldwide military spending.
Category: Global Disarmament Strength: Mild Proposed by: Cowardly Pacifists
Description: The World Assembly:
Recalling the commitment of Member Nations to see peace prevail and to avoid"...

Just great! The World Assembly wants to legislate war. We do not think the WA should be allowed to write the Laws of War. War is war and each conflict varies from the next. There is no "perfect" war that can be run by a book such as the one the World Assembly is attempting to write. Sure, it would be great if ever war was scheduled and signed off on before it began, but then again so would world peace and free cookies and milk every day. Our long-standing position has been that war is war and it is not a thing that can be legislated with realistic expectations. Stuff happens during war. While this is Resolution is well-meaning, 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 flat on the last GA vote -- Stopping Suicide Seeds -- which was passed after gaining 69.78% 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 3 FOR and 4 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were totally split.
NewTexas is open to suggestions on how we should vote on this Resolution to most accurately reflect opinion of the populace. All comments are welcome from all nations, both WA Members as well as those who are not. *As always, the WA Delegate vote will be based on publicly-expressed popular opinion.*
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 by 11:00pm Sunday as voting ends at 11:00pm Texas Time on Monday the 20th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 1855 Votes AGAINST: 6595
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
I don't see how they copied Star Wars. In a way the plot reminded me of a combination of the plots from multiple Star Trek films of the past.
The plot is entirely different, different characters, different everything. No trace of Star Wars.
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!®
