Texas Regional Message Board
Mmm mmm. Gotta love those "oysters."
***** TX Department of State Official Announcement *****
We are looking for contributions to our regional update. The subject can be about regional, national or even RL Texas culture/technology/literature/entertainment/fashion/etc. with at least 500 words. The type of contributions we are looking for are feature articles in third person. The style should read similar to magazine articles as opposed to newspapers, online news sources and wiki pages. We are also avoiding editorials. Let me know if you are interested.
According to the Left wing leaders, pundits and most of the media, that special election for Georgia's Sixth Congressional District was going to be a referendum on President Trump.
Going into election day Karen Handel, the Republican Candidate for that seat was somewhere between 1% and 1.5% ahead in the polls. At the end of the day Handel handily won that seat 53% to 43%. She not only covered the spread, she quadrupled it.
Now then... Let's see if that election is still a referendum on Trump.
What good is raiding a Supermarket if there's no food left? Still don't have enough supplies for a garden, so I'm hoping my characters don't die until then.
How about you use that fancy star trek technology their trecdom.
If only we had replicators in the game. Would solve most the issues.
That's probably the reason they don't... it would make it too easy.
***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****
WooHoo, Saturday Breakfast Redux! Today is Breakfast Sandwich II Saturday! YeHaw! We had so much fun whipping up one-handed breakfasts last weekend, we are doing it again. Let's kick things off with a Pancake Pounder - two rich, saucer-sized, buttermilk pancakes holding an equally impressively-sized, freshly-ground, maple/sage sausage patty. The whole shebang is generously spread with fresh, whipped honey/maple butter. Man, this sucker is a one-pound beast of breakfast goodness. Want to go funky? No problemo - try our Green Eggs and Ham Hoagie! We take genuine Texas, farm-raised Grade A Jumbo Eggs and scramble them up with enough parsley, cilantro & chives to make them more green than yellow, smear them on a short loaf of French Bread lightly seared up until golden brown in Belgian Chimay butter, imported from our friends in Belgium no less. Then we top it off with a slab of Texas smoked hickory ham lightly simmered in Red Eye gravy. WooHoo! Get decadent by adding Longhorn Jack cheese! Not so hungry, no prob with the Crepettes - light, tender, eggy crepes filled with your choice of Cinnamon Apples, Poteet Strawberry Jam or Banana & Chocolate Chips! For the Good Ol' Boys, we have the Beefy Hungry Texan Breakfast Sandwich made with a couple of thick slabs of golden Texas Toast glistening with butter wrapping a pair of hard-fried eggs topped with mini-Filet Mignon, grilled to order, and slathered in chili con queso and finished with homemade bacon bits. It doesn't get much better than this Pardner! We are having so much fun with these suckers, we may have even more all-new Breakfast Sandwiches next week! By popular demand, we will keep open the Juice Bar with all the standard Juices - Orange, Apple, Grapefruit, and Tomato. New to the lineup is homemade Vey Ocho! Guess all Ocho and win a free case of cans to take home. Try "The Suicide" - 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. Come on down and start your day right Texas. You know you want to!®
***** 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 on April 1, 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, 645 weeks and running! For the math-challenged, that is over 12¾ years! Check it out! Good stuff!
**** 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:
"Trade Of Endangered Organisms
A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.
Category: Environmental Industry Affected: All Businesses Proposed by: Ransium
The World Assembly,
Applauding its members' continued efforts on the preservation of endangered organisms"...
<see the General Assembly for full text and to vote>
WooHootie! We have an Environmental Resolution! Save the Cheerleader, Save The World! Those who have been keeping up know we are not a big fan of environmental Resolutions. However, this is a good one and is written by not one, but two Friends of Texas. Ransium is the Delegate of our allied region Forest and Bears Armed has maintained a nation in Texas for well over 10 years. If these two partnered up to create this, we trust them. Besides, it is about endangered species. Nobody wants to see anything completely disappear from the universe, do they? Well, maybe T-Rexes will not be missed, but nobody wants to see pandas disappear! Right? Save the pandas! 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 up on the last GA vote -- Repeal: "Reproductive Freedoms" -- which was defeated after gaining only 17.3% 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 5 FOR and 1 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were almost unanimous.
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 Tuesday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00 AM Texas Time on Wednesday the 28th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 5849 Votes AGAINST: 2747
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
So voting against that.
