I want to like this, but living in PA I feel I really can't. Although my college football loyalties aren't real strong.

Ladies and Gentlemen of Texas!

Dear friends,

A toast to our good health and luck, fortune and longevity! May the year 2019 be a magnificent and unforgettable year!

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

Category: Commendation Nominee: Lyras Proposed by: Kostrorleauny

The Security Council,

Acknowledging the current system of government under which the Lyran people live to be that of a true stratocracy"...

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

Analysis: The Security Council has a Commendation going for a Role-playing nation - Lyras. They have been around on and off since 2004, yet we have never met them. It sounds like they have done a lot of stuff, all good stuff. We will take the author's word for it. 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 SC vote -- Repeal: "Commend Solorni" -- which was passed after gaining 79.6% 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 2 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 2 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 5th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 10441 Votes AGAINST: 1437

Rodeo clowns don't really have any control over the bulls. They are like magicians, distracting the bull with misdirection and pretty colors.

it would have made the pre game more interesting.

The bull is color blind. Pretty colors doesn't distract it. It reacts to movement like the T-Rex in Jurassic Park.

Happy New Year everyone!

Howdy everyone in Texas!

Actually, the pretty colors are designed to be contrasting in order to make it easier for the bull to see the bullfighter.

***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****

WooHootie Texas! Continuing a five-year tradition, we are going to start the year with a big ol' stack-o-pancakes! For today's breakfast needs, we will be serving Saturday Texas Pancake Buffet compliments of the Texas House of Pancakes. We have a wide variety of pancakes, all made to order. We will be flipping flying saucer size with a pizza paddle and silver dollar size with an offset frosting spatula. The right tool for the right job is key in everything from home-building to pancake-making. We will be offering a ton of pancake add-ins too! We have everything from the standard blueberry to caramelized apples, to strawberry, chocolate chip, pecan, walnut, granola, butterscotch chip, black cherry, dehydrated cranberries, pumpkin pieces, and the all-new praline bits. For the health-conscious, we will be offering whole wheat, bran, buckwheat, or oatmeal pancakes. Also, for the internationally-inclined, we have crepes, blintzes, crespelle, pannenkoeken, and lettu. As a public service reminder, THOP wishes to remind all that Texas is still bigger than France. We will be breaking out the Topping Bar made popular during Wacky Waffle Saturday. We have all your pancake needs covered for the traditionalist including genuine maple syrup imported from our friends in Canada, as well as melted butter, whipped butter and even stick butter! The goodness continues with honey, treacle, stroop, strawberry preserves, banana compote, orange marmalade, blueberry preserves, and a new addition for this year, cookie butter! We even have newly-added adult toppings such as Kahlúa whipped cream, Frangelico syrup, Crème de Cassis sauce, Kirshwasser cream and Grand Marnier with orange zest reduction. Come on down and get a short stack or a full stack of some great pancakes. 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!®

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.

**** 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:
"Preventing Groundwater Contamination
A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.

Category: Environmental  Industry Affected:  All Businesses - Mild  Proposed by: Wallenburg

Celebrating past efforts to raise awareness of the importance of water resource conservation and protection"...

<see the General Assembly for full text and to vote>"

Analysis: The General Assembly wants you to protect yourself with its oversight when it comes to water. Under the auspices of overseeing the protection of your neighbors' water supply, the WA wants to regulate your water supply. One Star. 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 -- Intersystem Space Stations Programme -- which was defeated after gaining only 48.9% 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 2 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 0 FOR and 2 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were unanimous! Yay!

Hi!

I'm a newbie. My nation name is a combo of the Republic of Gilead from the Dark Tower and Syldavia from Tintin. Those are my favorite books. I'm here cause my older bros Vince and Arian are here and they told me to come here.

My name's Emmett. I'm 12 years old and I like Mexican and Japanese food. My birthday is on Sep 7th. This year I'll celebrate my 13th birthday and I'm scared of the number 13. Yikes! I used to be named Edison but was frequently compared to Thomas Edison and badly bullied at school. So 2 years ago I asked for my name to be changed to Emmett and my parents granted my request. No one bullies me at school now.

I hope I'm welcome here.
