@ Fort Verden - Get well soon, Buddy! Texas cannot do without our Iron Man for long. Leia, little help, please!

Big Tex, Iím doing my best to help our Iron man get better. Unfortunately, I canít do much for my lord at home. All I can do is give him his heart medications and help him get comfortable in bed with enough pillows so he could rest without feeling breathless. Verner needs to go to hospital to receive proper treatment but he doesnít want to be hospitalized. I donít want to argue with him because the stress will worsen his condition. :(

Mirror, Mirror.

Dudes and Dudettes,

My Dad isnít better today but he tried to get up and get out of bed and fell to the floor of the master bedroom. The noise of Dad falling woke Mom up and she asked him what happened. He told Mom heís still extremely dizzy and lightheaded and feeling very sick and nauseous and then he passed out. Mom dialed 911 and then woke us up and told us what happened to Dad. Weíre waiting for the ambulance to arrive and Dadís going to be taken to the hospital emergency room today.

Ever since Dad became sick earlier this year me and my brothers realized we need him in our life cause when Dad isn't around our life sucks. So please pray for our Dad to get well. Thanks in advance for your prayers.

This was one of my puppet nations that was created at the time for facilitating recruiting drives and assisting in spreading Texas BBQ internationally on some of our region's foreign trips. She served her purpose well, but in recent years had transitioned into a regular puppet. Now it's time to let her have the rest she has earned at least for the time being or unless a need arises again(maybe around Z-Day).

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

Category: Commendation Nominee: the Rejected Realms Proposed by: Greater Cesnica

The Security Council,

Recognizing The Rejected Realms for its contributions to the international community"...

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

Commentary: The Security Council wishes to Commend our friends in The Rejected Realms. Texas has had an Embassy with The Rejected Realms for almost four years. Many members of the Texas Defense Forces claim not one, not two, not three, but four TRR Mission medals. Three were for liberations and one was for a transfer of power. Texas has not only helped TRR in all their times of need but also counts them amongst its friends. 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 down on the last SC vote -- Commend Common Territories -- which was passed after gaining 75.1% 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 2 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 2 FOR and 3 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 13th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 2079 Votes AGAINST: 8811

Big Tex

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

This nation is holding out good thoughts for our buddy, Verner. Hang in there Vinceland. I'm here for you, dad and the rest of the family.

Update on Vernerís condition

My lord has finally regained consciousness and was quite upset to find himself in the ICU again. He was even more upset when he discovered that he was connected to a ventilator and that a tracheostomy had been performed on him due to his need for prolonged respiratory support. Heís on intravenous medications too.

Verner tripped and fell headlong down a flight of stairs last Friday evening when he was coming downstairs for dinner at home. He was badly shaken by the ordeal and other than badly bruised ribs, he had used his arms to protect his head and they were bruised too. We discovered later after he has been hospitalized that he had suffered a myocardial contusion (bruised heart) and injured lungs due to the blunt chest trauma too. As a result of the injuries sustained from his fall, he started to develop pulmonary edema (fluid buildup) in his lungs and by Saturday morning he was struggling to breathe in addition to other worrisome symptoms. He adamantly refused to go to hospital and Iím sorry I acquiesced to his wishes. I wish I didnít wait until he passed out on Monday morning to call 911 and have him taken to hospital. As long as heís still on the ventilator, heíll be kept sedated so he could rest and recover comfortably.

I would like to thank everyone who has been praying for Verner. Please continue to pray for his recovery. Thank you.

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

WooHootie Saturday Breakfast Time! To help kill off Fourth of July leftovers, for today's breakfast we will be serving Saturday Brisket Breakfast Tacos! The Big Tex Happy Taco Stands of NewTexas smoked up a couple too many metric tons of beef brisket for the Fourth, so we are giving away the leftovers to Texans in breakfast taco form. Never had brisket for breakfast? Have we got a treat for you! We will start things off with a classic Brisket & Egg Taco - Texas Grade A, farm-fresh, hen house, jumbo eggs scrambled to perfection, topped with two super-tender slices of smoky beef brisket and rolled in a hot, homemade, Texas-sized flour tortilla. We could stop right there, but we won't. Hundreds of Abuelitas have been up all night simmering beans, both pinto & black, for fresh refried beans to go on our Brisket & Bean Taco! These bad boys have a healthy smear of your favorite refrieds, thick-sliced brisket and are topped off with mild Longhorn Cheddar or spicy Pepper Jack cheese. This is melt-in-your-mouth goodness! And, if you are a meat and potatoes kind of person, you will love our Brisket & Potato Taco! First, we fry up diced potatoes in a little brisket fat with some sliced onions, then we stir in chopped brisket to make a hash out of it and slap it in a fresh hot flour tortilla and top it with grilled Poblano strips. Oh yeah! We are not stopping there peeps! Try the Kitchen Sink! It starts with a full 12" handmade flour tortilla smeared with your choice of refried beans, your choice of cheese, copious amounts of scrambled eggs, double-thick slices of smoky beef brisket, more eggs, fried potatoes, more cheese, homemade guacamole and topped with super-crispy, super-tasty burnt ends. You will be hard pressed to keep this beast closed, much less, fit it into your mouth. It doesn't get any better than that in brisket for breakfast! Enjoy! We will open The Juice Bar is with all the standard juices - Orange, Apple, Grapefruit and Tomato. This week's funky stuff is, drumroll please, Death By Citrus - Orange, Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, Citron, Clementine, Kumquat, Pomelo, Tangelo & Yuzu!!! Try "The Suicide" - all the juices, in one glass - we dare you! 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. Enjoy Texas! You know you want to!ģ

@ Quetzalleia - Thank you for the update on Verner's condition, Leia! Verner has to be the most difficult patient you have ever had. What a handful!

@ Fort Verden - Hang in there Buddy and just chill and get well!

***** 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 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, 747 weeks and running! For the math-challenged, that is over 14ĺ years! Check it out! Good stuff!

Quetzalleia wrote:He adamantly refused to go to hospital and Iím sorry I acquiesced to his wishes.

Dear Leia,

Next time that comes up, play the wife card on him. Tell him if he refuses the temporary change in venue you are going to get the cast iron frying pan and thump him on the head with it until he is no longer able to protest the temporary change in venue or sees things your way. Or he can get up and go to the hospital under his own power, which wold be far easier on the melon. But either way, he is going to the hospital because you said so as both an MD and, more importantly, the loving, caring wife who also owns a cast iron skillet. (If you don't have one, send Vincent to the store to get one.)

If it helps, you may tell him I recommended the skillet strategy. Tell Verner it far better than losing him.

----------------------------------------------------------

This nation is going on record as [Against] the current resolution before the WA. We freely acknowledge the right of people doing whatever they like with their own body.

Our objection is with the language "Requires all member-states to have an affordable, easy-to-access way for its transgender population to access hormone therapy." That usually means "government subsidized" or "government paid." We do not provide any government funded healthcare in this nation. As this is not an emergency procedure, there is even less reason for the government of ITB to enter into this matter.

If the WA wants a subsidy, they can write the check.

New poll is up :D

Quetzalleia: Leia, I'm sorry to hear that Verner is in the ICU again and I'll be praying for him to get well soon.

Fort Verden: Get well soon Verner.

**** 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:
"Affordable Transgender Hormone Therapy
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.

Category: Civil Rights Strength: Mild Proposed by: Morover

The World Assembly, by the advice and consent of the delegates and member nations thereof"...

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

Commentary: The World Assembly wants every member nation in the world to subsidize hormone therapy for transgender people. No, we do not let the General Assembly dictate the price of tacos or corn, why should we allow them to dictate the price of hormones? This is not a Civil Rights Resolution, this is a regulation of industry. Just say no. 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 up on the last GA vote -- Prevention of Mutually Assured Destruction -- which was defeated after gaining only 16.8% 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 4 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 0 FOR and 4 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 Monday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00 AM Texas Time on Tuesday the 16th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 7920 Votes AGAINST: 2595

Big Tex

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

Sorry y'all. I'm on a camping trip and can't do my usual Sunday Texas Culinary Channel post. The TCC programme will resume next Sunday.

Our citizens are all augmented Spartan supersoldiers. There's no such thing as a transgendered Spartan soldier so if we're in the WA we'll vote Against this resolution. We don't provide any Transgender Treatment here. :p

Kyletana, UNSC Artificial intelligence (SN: KTN 8642-9)

This was my life for two weeks ten years ago. The memorial was July 15th at the Staples Center in LA. That was kind of a surreal event as there was a huge anime convention going on in the convention center. We had people dressed in suits carrying flowers, cards, stuffed animals, posters etc, and people dressed as anime characters, Klingons, cat women, etc, in equal numbers.

Seems like another lifetime now.
