**** 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:
"Ozone Layer Protection
A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.
Category: Environmental Industry Affected: Manufacturing Proposed by: Bears Armed Mission
The World Assembly,
Aware that high levels of Ultraviolet Light, particularly in certain wavelengths, can be very harmful to many types of life-forms"...
<see the General Assembly for full text and to vote>
Synopsis: A Texan, using their WA nation located elsewhere, attempts to guarantee all lifeforms' continued existence by allowing the General Assembly to perform research, impose guidelines and enforce compliance with the reduction of ozone-depleting activities. Save The Cheerleader, Save The World. Three Stars. 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 -- Protection Of Biomedical Research -- which was passed after gaining 78.1% 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 1 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were almost unanimous.
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 Texas WA Member nations please vote. Please make your Texan opinions known in Texas by 11:00 PM Sunday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00 AM Texas Time on Monday the 15th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 7277 Votes AGAINST: 2030
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****
Oh Boy, it is Saturday Breakfast time again! Man, it is cold in Texas, so, let's make today Steak & Egg Saturday! There is no better way to start your day than with a big, beefy, super-juicy, genuine Texas-born, raised and BBQ'd 14-ounce Black Angus filet grilled to order over your choice of mesquite or hickory. This is the freshest, most tender, Texas beef you will ever taste. The ranch where they are raised is, ironically enough, just down Ranch Road 2018. Pick your own steak and watch as it is expertly grilled before your eyes as delicious farm-fresh, organic eggs are cooked to order as well. We will even give you a choice between scrambled (our personal favorite), fried, over easy, sunny-side up, poached, boiled or some even prefer raw. However you choose, it will be prepared to perfection. Sides will include yummy home fries or creamy cheese grits and your choice of toast. 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. Come on down and start your day right Texas. You know you want to!®
***** Texas Activity Reminder *****
Texans, we have been invited by our friends in the region Lands End to participate in Yarn Fest, a yarn-spinning competition. There is more information in their Dispatch here. If you remember, we had a Poll about it here last month. Now is the time to whip something up.
Our Secretary of State, The Low Lifespan of Trecdom2 is trying to get a Texas Newsletter going and we would like to include our Texas yarns. We will even have a Contest for Best Texas Yarn! So, if you want some bragging rights, head on over to the offsite and submit your yarn! Shake a leg!
Let's go Texas! This is a Limited Time deal and submissions must be made by Wednesday, January 17th.
***** Texas Chat Reminder *****
The Texas Weekly Chat Session will be Saturday (TODAY) at High Noon Texas Time (CDT) ***Saturday***. And, if you can't be there right at Noon, that is Ok, Texas Chat usually runs 3, 4, 5 hours with some Chats running as high as 7 or 8 hours. The current record is a marathon fifteen hours forty-nine minutes starting on April 1, 2017, and ending on April 2, 2017.
The Texas Chat Site is here: http://texasregion.net/blab70/login.php
Please register with your nation name. This is a great opportunity for nations old and new to Texas to find out what is going on! We chat, we debate, we talk about the weather, we talk about stuff we like, stuff we hate, random stuff and more stuff. But, it is never stuffy. Usually, it is about meeting your fellow Texans and talking about the latest and most interesting stuff in NationStates at the moment. But then again, sometimes NationStates does not even come up. It is wide-open chatting with peeps from around The World both IRL and NS. It is Texans, EuroTexans, WannabeTexans, ex-Texans, and plenty of Friends of Texans. We have it all and all are welcome. Texas Chat, 673 weeks and running! For the math-challenged, that is over 13¼ years! Check it out! Good stuff!
Eh I'd like to give the falcons another chance. It's like they threw away a big game or anything.
Sorry for my abscence the last while. Real Life has been rearing its ugly head once again as we deal with illness, familial issues, work issues (extra on top of the usual :) ), etc
I am gonna try to get back on top of things this week!
Good game from the Jags. They have a shot on the Patriots if they play like that...
Dang that Saints-Vikings game was interesting. Sure, I fell asleep in the 2nd quarter, but I woke up for the final 5 minutes or so of the 4th (frankly the best 5 minutes of the whole game).
I have Jags over Pats 31-28 and Eagles over Vikings 12-7 next week. Wish me luck 😝.
No no no it's supposed to be Vikings over Eagles. Lol
Foles couldnt do much against Atlanta and the Vikes are built for low scoring defensive games. Im calling the Vikings make history and play at home against the Pats beating Philly 24-3
Still finishing the story, but here's the link to it anyway. Not terribly pleased with how it's turning out, but I figure I should finish it anyway.
Won't have a lot of time for editing, but I will try and listen to any/all constructive criticism.
