Greg Abbott and the rest of his conservative government rather see hundreds of Texans dead so his buddies in the O&G industry can rake in billions. He is a clear and present danger to the lives of Texans. Absolute disgrace.

"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill

So this is what the Beta and Beta supporters are hanging their hat on? I was coming back from College Station down 21 outside of Bastrop and saw a billboard with Beta's big head on it. It stated something like, "If you value your power grid vote for Beta." I had a good laugh.

I'm with Greg. We have way too much dead weight in this state. Time to thin the herd!




See, that is how you troll.

Ours stays on 77 all the time. Perfectly comfortable.

76 with the ceiling fans going.

That number is inflated. Assuming a cross section of society there would be some Democrat communists in the mix. And, as we all know, they aren't people.

And what gets me mad is that I finally got the hot tub repair people out to replace the heater after a month of delays and now it is too hot even at night. I demand Abbott bring back Spring!

My wife is old (not as old a me) and arthritic. She is cold all the time. We set ours at 80 during the day and I sit under a ceiling that spins like jet engine. At night, I turn it down to about 74 so I don't get sweaty before the AC comes on.

I do. Between 76 and 78 because we have big ceiling fans in every room. Air circulation makes it much cooler. Also a super insulated house helps.

Beto cannot even get his teeth fixed, let alone a power grid.

as a Dem he would likely sell it off entirely to China to manage.

At the peak today the demand was 65K megawatts. How much new supplies have we added in relation to the increase in demand from population growing

Certainly not Beto and the elitists that propose it.
