Ah, Texas!

Ayn Rand’s Grave

The U.S. Lab for Bad Policy

From the You-gotta-dance-with-them-whut-brung-you files:

Griddy customers face $5,000 electric bills for 5 freezing days in Texas

In our deregulated market, Griddy and some other power suppliers charge customers wholesale variable rates. Those plans are relatively new — and left customers frustrated after the storm.

That’s the price of The Gret Stet of Texas-style libertarian Freedumb. You don’t get any energy, but you do get a crippling bill to prop up a corporation, absentee senators, and freezing citizens left to fend for themselves. AOC has done more for Texas than the Republican elected officials and certainly more than Ayatollah Ted:

Gov. Abbott and other grifters claim that they were liberating Texas from the tyranny of Federal Gubmint regulations, but Abbott et al were actually pick-pocketing (is too a vurb!) their marks and putting those hard-earned Ameros in the pockets of their cronies and donors.

But instead of fixing things, Republicans:

It didn’t have to be this way, Texas, but you have the ability to vote them out of office and fix it.

    And I’m assuming y’all saw Rafael Pendejo’s damage-control photo op, which is fooling precisely no one (except those who are too gullible to think for themselves, obviously). What a tool.

      Well, now that you mentioned it I went and looked for it.
      I’d like to point out that his forearms are showing in the very sunny pictures he shared, so I guess he waited until it was warm enough to prove that he is NOT a werewolf by literally rolling up his sleeves.
      Oh, also from the article I came across, just casually dropped at the end of that piece:

      According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, travelers coming back from international trips should quarantine for seven days after returning to the U.S.

    “…but you have the ability to vote them out of office and fix it.” Having the intelligence is another matter entirely.

    Howdy y’all!

    I made a similar comment on a well known and widely used social media platform. One Texan retorted that not all Texans were like that. But, the comment fails to acknowledge that our elections are perhaps the best example of collective intelligence in which we collectively make decisions. In that sense, if these are the decisions the elected officials of Texas are making, it expresses the combined will of Texans unless and until they are voted out.

    The Texas deep freeze debacle may be sufficient to overcome the ridiculous focus we have on national politics and the amount that we ignore state and local politics. Hopefully, this will have been such a traumatic experience for so many that they cannot be lulled back to sleep through cognitive dissonance, illusory explanation, and motivated reasoning.

    Huzzah!
