Hey! The people who count aren’t affected by the ERCOT mismanagement! Only the “little people” who don’t count anyway. The R’s in charge know how to take care of themselves and their cronies. That’s how they stay in power election after election after election.
Some states missing from the list? Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, S Carolina, N Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, North and South Dakota, Montana… Does that mean living in a red state automatically makes you immune? I don’t think so because you know how Covid ravaged S Dakota because their governor chose to follow the last guy’s “I don’t take any responsibility” line.
Those that follow the last guy and believe his lies are the ones to pay the price. (Of course, he and his whole family secretly got their shots before leaving the White House!)
Don’t you know, every story out of Russia is a tragedy. Get a Russian bride? Adopt a Russian child? Buy anything Russian made (other than Vodka)? Do business with a Russian business? Allow the Russian mafia to come to this country? When the Russian evangelicals got a special dispensation to escape Russia and come to this country, including getting supplemental security income, free medical care and Medicare and Social Security even though they didn’t pay into the system, the ones who lived in our area of Seattle would come down to the basement of our church where we had clothing and groceries, bread, and commodities like cheese, they would gather up everything to mail it back to their relatives who were still in Russia. Their boldness in feeling entitled to help themselves shocked us!
Remember, paying tax accountants and lawyers is tax deductible!
It made my day to see all these heartfelt good wishes being extended to a person with a legitimate concern. Thank you all.
Socialism is what they think some less deserving person might get; In Washington we have dams in the Columbia River owned by local county Public Utility Districts generating electricity. It lowers the cost of power to the people who live in the county by selling the excess power generated into the ‘Grid" They were built in the 1950’s and ’60’s. It couldn’t be done today because it is obviously a form of socialism, and the investor-owned power companies wouldn’t allow the competition. This region is populated by people who fly Trump flags in their front yards. One friend admitted he couldn’t put a Biden sign in his yard because he feared his neighbors would burn his place down. But, we all love having the cheaper electricity. Farmers love the irrigation water. Sportsmen like the lakes where they can fish and drive their boats, water skiing and all. We all like the benefits of “socialism”, because we all get the benefit, and don’t think of it as something someone less deserving is getting.
He likes them young because they have no basis for comparison.
Look, the D’s need every vote they can get, and it is better to have him on the D side of the aisle than the R side. All he has to do is sit on the other side and the whole show is back in the hands of Moscow Mitch. We don’t want that, now do we? With all the blather about defunding the police, the D’s failed to pick up what should have been 5 easy senate wins. It’s our own darned fault! And it’s not going to be easy in the mid-terms to keep our heads above water. So we need to paddle harder and keep everyone we’ve got.
Made me laugh out loud! Thanks!
