***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****
YaHootie! Saturday breakfast time! And, today, we have a new one! For your dining pleasure, courtesy of The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas, we are whipping up Saturday Ham and Egg Tacos! This is your delicious morning wake-up call! We have been up all night baking hams just so we can dice them up for this delectable ham and egg taco! 100% Texas born and bred piggies plus Grade AA jumbo, free-range, farm-fresh, brown eggs, scrambled to order, equals breakfast taco heaven. The super-juicy ham is flash fried to give it just a hint of browning on the flat top right before they are gently scrambled into the fluffy eggs. These two simple, expertly-prepared ingredients are hand-rolled in a hot, fresh flour tortilla made on the premises multiple times daily. That is all you need right there, but if you want to spice it up, just ask us to Make It Holler and we will throw in some freshly roasted green chilis. Like cheese with your ham? No prob! We have delicious shredded Longhorn Jack Cheddar cheese; we have Habanero Jack and even shredded Swiss for a nice take on a ham and cheese and egg taco. The Salsa Bar is up and running with everything you could possibly want to top your taco including Cheesy Queso, fresh Pico de Gallo, Fire-Roasted Salsa, lime, and fresh Cilantro! It doesn't stop there! We also have fresh homemade creamy Guacamole, Sour Cream, and our all-new spunky Jalapeño Ranch, all available for making your breakfast as special as you are! We will open The Juice Bar with all the standard juices - Orange, Apple, Grapefruit, Tomato. The funky one today is not that funky at all - the Breakfast Michilada complete with Avacado wedge, Lime wedge, and Pickled Jalapeño wedge. Try "The Suicide" - we dare you! If fresh fruit and/or fruit are not your bag, we will be stirring up Tang on request. 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. Come on down and start your day right 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:
"Pride And Prejudice
A resolution to increase democratic freedoms.
Category: Furtherment of Democracy Strength: Mild Proposed by: Bears Armed Mission
It is a truth [almost] universally acknowledged that a government which has been firmly in control of its nation for quite a while is"...
<see the General Assembly for full text and to vote>
Synopsis: The General Assembly is attempting to pass some lightweight legislation that basically encourages governments to listen to their peoples' opinions and if they tell the people they are going to do something, then they do it. BTW, that same Texan on the last GA Resolution is going for a two-fer with this one. Two 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 -- Traditional Medicine -- which was passed after gaining 80.0% 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 5 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 Thursday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00 PM Texas Time on Friday the 18th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 0 Votes AGAINST: 0
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
Is this region Pro-life?
FOR the GA resolution.
