**** 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:
"Commend Vancouvia
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.

Category: Commendation Nominee: Vancouvia Proposed by: Europe and Oceania

Description: RECOGNIZING The Free Lands of Vancouvia founded one of the largest regions"...

<see page=sc for full text>

Hmm, we have a new Security Council Commendation. We are kind of torn on this one. On the one side, we like Vancouvia and his repeal efforts in the WA and he has built a pretty impressive region. On the other side, he is still kind of new, a little bit bold and "in your face", but does not have a whole lot of Resolutions under their belt. They are a little on the crazy side through their endorsement of every Proposal, but you really have to be impressed by their region. We are. We will leave this one up to you. NewTexas will go on record as FOR on this Resolution. 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 SC vote -- Commend Dyr Nasad -- which was passed after gaining 84.86% 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 11:00pm Texas Time on Saturday the 30th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 2178 Votes AGAINST: 6720

PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!

***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****

Oh Yeah, it is Saturday Breakfast time again and today is Gritsapalooza! We have some of the finest coarsely-ground corn the Lone Star State has to offer for you today. We will start with Super Cheesy Grits - a volcano of creamy grits cooked to perfection with pure Texas Spring Water and freshly-squeezed and churned creamery cream and a boatload of extra-sharp yellow Cheddar cheese with a touch of garlic and healthy pinch of cayenne mounded into a volcano filled with butter! Woo! You could stop right there and be totally satisfied. But, no, we have more. We have Bacon Grits, a yummy combo of almost 50-50 grits and bacon topped off with more super crispy bacon for the bacon-lover in you. Want something a little more upscale for your humble grits? Can do! We will be serving Grits with Parmesan and Prosciutto to give a little Italian flair to your breakfast. Don't want grits in a bowl or piled high? Not a prob. We will be offering up Texas-shaped fried grit cakes where we cook the grits, spread them out on a cookie sheet, cool them down, cut out Texas shapes and fry them up to a crispy golden brown in pure Texas butter. That calls for another Woo! For those on the healthy diet, we can whip up a bowl of a plain ol' porridge of grits, but it should be a dish of last resort especially when there are so many better ways of having them. Our buddy, the God Emperor Vlad (R.I.P.), substitutes olive oil for butter for a heart-healthy version and we will be offering that option for you too. To wash all these great grits down, we will open up The Juice Bar with all the standard juices - Orange, Apple, Grapefruit and Tomato. This week's funky stuff will be Carbonated Watermelon Water! Try "The Suicide" - all the juices, in one glass - we dare you! It doesn't get much better than this! 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!®

**** 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:
"Repeal "Law Enforcement Education"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal Resolution: GA#365 Proposed by: Excidium Planetis

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #365: Law Enforcement Education (Category: International Security; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out"...

<see page=ga for full text>

Oh Boy, another Insta-Repeal™! When this one was implemented on April 13, 2016, Texans pretty much hated it by a vote of 0 for and 6 against. NewTexas, as a nation did not like it because we thought it was trying to force respect for and by law enforcement down our throats. This one was/is bad. As a reminder, the issue here is the REPEAL of the existing law. A vote AGAINST this Resolution means you are in favor of the existing law and do not want it repealed. A vote FOR this Resolution means you want the law off the books. NewTexas will go on record as FOR on this Resolution. 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 -- Repeal "Preservation of Artefacts" -- which was passed after gaining 67.78% 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 5 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 4 FOR and 0 AGAINST and 1 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were almost unanimous.
