It's okay The Galactic Empire of Gig em Aggies I don't know who died and left you in control of the RMB. This is what a RMB is for and it's nice to see it being used as such for a change. If you go to other regions you will see their RMBs are the same. So please chill, if you don't like the content ignore it and move on.
So please continue Issues Test Bed and accept our apologies.

Noted. Glad you liked it.
Woonsocket's a good choice. Still big news, though.
**** 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:
"Extrajudicial Punishment Ban
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Human Rights Strength: Mild Proposed by: Bakhton
The World Assembly,
Understanding that numerous circumstances result in the occurrence of extrajudicial activity"...
<see the General Assembly for full text and to vote>
Ok, we have a new bleeding-heart Resolution. The WA is being very insistent that it is a Father Knows Best organization. Yet again, it is another one that really stomps on your National Sovereignty. When we say that, we will remind you of the makeup of the nations in the WA. There are Psychotic Dictatorships, there are Kingdoms, there are Monarchies, there are Religious Oligarchies, there are Primitive Tribal Cabals, and a myriad of other nations that are neither democracies nor are free. We may be talking about your nation. Well, the WA wants to make them all nice places. This is a prime example of the World Assembly attempting to impose their will on everyone. This is a pie-in-the-sky world view. We hate to stand up for the bad-guy forms of government, but this is not realistic in a World Assembly of 22,626 very different nations. The WA should step away. 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 flat on the last GA vote -- Enabling The Disabled In Academia -- which was passed after gaining 61.6% 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 3 FOR and 2 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were pretty split on that one.
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 the 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 11:00 PM Thursday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00 AM Texas Time on Friday the 28th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 2432 Votes AGAINST: 5899
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
Guess who won in the International Democratic Union Cheese Festival, 2017?
We will give you a hint from a Press Release from the Festival:
“All of the participating nation’s judges have now voted, and here are the results:
In the category ‘Best Cheese-related Product’ we have a clear winner: Quesadillas, from NewTexas”
Hmm, good idea Safj! Maybe we should make breakfast quesadillas for all of Texas Saturday....
* goes off to order a LOT of cheese for all 1,840,721,000,000 Texans (or, 1.8 thousand billion as [violet] would say) *
