**** 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 The Macabees
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.

Category: Commendation Nominee: The Macabees Proposed by: Yohannes

The World Assembly,

RECOGNISES The Macabees as a leading proponent of advanced military technologies since antiquity"...

<see the Security Council for full text and to vote>

Synopsis: The Security Council has found a new special nation to laud and praise from the Roleplay community. Apparently The Macabees are virtual military geniuses and have willingly shared their wisdom with countless others over more than a decade. That is truly commendable. 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 SC vote -- Commend Ransium -- which was passed after gaining 89.6% 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 3 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 3 FOR and 0 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were unanimous! Yay!

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 Friday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00 AM Texas Time on Saturday the 25th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 9615 Votes AGAINST: 1213

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

And from this time on the Dark Oliphant Riders will go out waging war for Narshtaph and the TDF while we shall stay back here, protecting the homeland!

All glory to Texas, our fearless leader BigTex and of course to me

"religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools"
"global anti-terrorist organisations strongly suspect F799 of supplying extremist groups"

Hmmmm....seems like the two could be connected somehow....

Killing people is good for the environment. Isn't it?

We would think this to be legit. And further more would it even further heighten spirituality should the killing happen within a religious sacrifice. Just saying...

STEAM sale is on! I'll be good and only buy 1 game.


Just moved here. Any good ways to get involved with the region?

Narshtaph and Eitna

Happy Thanksgiving Texas! We hope everybody gets some good food today and gets to kick back and relax (that goes for our EuroTexan buddies as well)! Don't forget to take a minute to reflect on all you have to be thankful for, like family, friends, life, NationStates, football, whatever (not necessarily in that order)! Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!

Anybody going off the turkey playbook? For the last ten years or so, we have grown weary of years and years of turkey. We are giving turkeys a break this year and are keeping it simple and letting the Honeybaked Ham Comany™ do all the work! Oink, Oink, Oink!

How about you? What are you having for Thanksgiving Texas?

Trec, Steam informed us they have 3 on our Wish List they are putting on sale. We need another game like we need another hole in our head. :)

Howdy Christo Pax!

You have several options of contribution:

-first of all be active on the RMB and contribute to a lively and open region
-check out the forums
-join in on our weekly chat, each Sat high noon Texas time, link found on the forums
-take a look at the Texas constitution and share ideas how to shape Texas in the future in upcoming trimestral elections
-have a closer look at the defense department and perhaps consider joining with the TDF
-After settling in a bit you might find possibilities to get active within the boundaries of the department of state

And most important of all: have fun!

What is that „Thanksgiving”? Seems very Erntedankfest to me...
*google* ...
Ah, According to Wikipedia, it is kinda Erntedankfest, but also not at all. Well; Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Don't listen to publications from Narshtaph, it's a totalitarian regime!
... But it has no cars, which is a good thing, and does ritual sacrifice...
