As a Texan, I find it extremely disturbing and complete proof that Texas "leadership" is compromised.

It had deep ass roots when Perry stole land from the people to build toll roads for China.

Texas has always had corruption issues, they just accelerated in the 90's and now here we are.

The answer to why Katrina squatters weren't sent back home. The answer to why illegal labor was welcomed for decades. The answer to land theft by the state. The answer to Austin. The answer to Houston. The answer to Dallas.

And now there's too many non-Texans to keep the culture alive. "Texan" is just a brand now, a disney-fied raping of what was once beautiful and unique, something born of independence and tempered in endless wars with anyone who would fuck with them. Mexicans, French, Comanches... anyone.

Requiem for a Republic. Requiem for a state. Requiem for a culture.

I was in community college at the time in a Houston suburb. The average class was about 20-25 students. Probably 5-10% black in the school.

Monday morning, the class is so full people are just standing. There aren't enough seats, maybe 45 people in class. An extra 15-20 black folk.

Wednesday (next class) , everything was back to normal.

I assume they had to show up for one day for some type of benefits, then just bounced and never came back.

Both issues are caused by the Federal Governments intervention though. Texas made the mistake of allowing the Federal Government that power.

anotherthing 20 points ago +20 / -0

This is exactly the case. The EPA caused the power shortages even though Texas told them that would happen and they needed to ramp up power production. The EPA told them they could buy power from other states, but only "green power".

11
jdog 11 points ago +11 / -0

I love seeing the "fact checks" on this that say the EPA did allow Texas to go beyond their permits during the crisis. Yeah, they did allow them, but they threatened to fine the shit out of them if they did.

I tried to raise awareness about this before, but the thread never took off.

ERCOT is basically the Texas Energy Market equivalent of the Federal Reserve, and they had a lot to do with it too.

Amaroq64 5 points ago +5 / -0

I'll also copy/paste it here, for those who don't want to click through:


Texas' energy market is managed by an agency called ERCOT, which:

  • Was created by the government.
  • Answers to the government.
  • Has its board appointed by the government.
  • Centrally manages Texas' energy market.

Don't let them tell you the Texas 2021 blackout was a failure of the free market.

It was a failure of central management.

Just look at all the things the house allowed to expire without voting on. They intentionally allowed democrats to stall out a law that would make child mutilations illegal. Intentionally! They could have locked the doors and forced a vote, but the did not. The even told the democrats beforehand that they would not force a vote.

Allen is based as fuck. Every time I hear that man speak I come away impressed. He's brutally frank, doesn't use the same half assed dodges RINOs love to employ. Would love to see him in there.

My only concern (and this is not to mean he shouldn't run) is Texas GOP is full of RINO faggots that are way too happy to play ball with Dallas and Houston democrats so he would have an uphill battle dealing with the legislature.

Cyer6 4 points ago +4 / -0

He recently resigned from his chair position with the TX GOP. I think he's giving it some serious thought especially since McConaughey is considering a run. That guy would be a disaster.

It’s not just “making fun of stupidity” though, right? It’s literally repeating what they say, verbatim. Do you see how that’s a problem? Make fun, by all means, but we should put a little more thought and energy into it so as not to help them in the process.

The national capitol should be in an isolated, miserable location in order to encourage Congress to conduct their business and FO to their home districts as quickly as possible at the end of each session.

I’m thinking a compound in the Oklahoma panhandle consisting of a conglomeration of double wide trailers, with barracks style accommodations for Congress, a military style DFAC as the only option for meals, and a large drafty barn with bleachers for Congress to meet in.

And cameras everywhere, live-streaming all of the goings on to the public.

No, they purposely have shut down power plants, just like in february. Its being done on purpose, not saying green energy isnt crap, but we are having issues now because ERCOT is an inept company that is pushing the potatoes green new deal agenda, and what better state to make an example of climate change than Texas? The state known for oil and gas.

12
PickleSticks 12 points ago +12 / -0

the reason we had power failures in february was because crucial back up generators were offline for maintenance, the reason where having issues now is because power plants are being forced offline. One being a large nuclear power plant offline for a 'suspicious fire'.

Foreign_Aid_is_Theft 4 points ago +4 / -0

Imagine if your business was expensive to finance,

politicians wanted to regulate it out of existence,

created mandates that make new construction more expensive

had alternatives that produce power mainly at the lowest points of demand with no storage basically sucking up 25% of the energy demand annually but producing less than 10% of the demand at peaks in demand

This is how you get a shortage in conventional to fill the gap.

Who would invest in this business when your return on capital is trending down?

One nuclear power plant was producing more electricity than all the windmills in Texas during peak demand yesterday.

Nuclear is also incredibly hard to get built. Planning to completing construction could go through 2-3 different state and federal administrations having ever changing regulatory requirements and approvals.

Now build pipelines, plants and O&G exploration and then woopsie!, permits pulled and financing shut off.

I like West, but he's just fucking wrong.

  1. accepting help isn't the same as needing it

  2. a border wall is a multi-billion dollar project, a big deal, especially when the feds are going to fight it all the way.

  3. the green agenda does need rollback. TX needs to handle it, but a significant amount of money was spent moving in the wrong direction. West is bitching about the barn door being left open instead of helping to round up the horses.

  4. crowdfunding is actually the most democratic and voluntary form of funding for civil works. West's statement is basically trashing people putting their money where their mouth is.

EPA or ERCOT made Texas convert gas field compressors from running on the natural gas they collected and compressed to running on electricity from the power plants they supplied because emissions. Guess what happens when they started rolling blackouts.

No power to the compressors, no gas for the power plants. Now the rolling blackouts are full on blackouts till power to the compressors is restored.

Who could have predicted that?

I can definitely answer that third question. The answer is that wind power is a fucking joke, and anyone who knows the first thing about electricity knows it. It's unreliable at the best of times, and can't be ramped up when more output is required.

Wind power is literally designed to be a failure.

Texas has 30% of its grid now tied to useless renewables, mainly Wind power. This week we've had below average winds in west Texas. Go figure when your 30 GW of power is only giving you 10GW, you have a shortage.

Around the time Obama became president I had stock in a company called NRG who was getting ready to build several nuclear reactors. The Obama administration started to discourage nuclear power and the project was either scrapped or NRG pulled out of the project. As far as I know those reactors weren’t built. The fact that we never seriously pursued nuclear energy after global warming began to get hyped up was a clear sign that it was a scam.
