DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS! DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS! OK, honey, I won't. And don't YOU go asking THIS Yankee for a bailout.

Those rough, tough, macho gasbags (aka, the Rick Perry / Ted Cruz sheeple) - in their pathic pursuit of "rugged individualism" - just HAD to have the nation's only state-owned and -operated electrical grid. Which has collapsed on them Armageddon-ly, if that's a word.

Not to mention that poor slob who just a $17-18,000 residential electrical service bill.

Should we non-Lone Star "inferiors" in 'Murca's other 49 states ride to the re$cue of these nellie damsels in distress? Or should they follow the lead of their Ultra-Right-Wing-Looney-Toon Republican masters, and "pull themselves up by their own bootstraps?"

Thoughts? Other than "Yee-HAW," I mean?

Everything is bigger there.

Even the neglect and mismanagement.

I believe that many Texans espouse the "sink or swim, it's your choice" belief and freely condemn people for "crying and looking for a handout" when those in need are from any place else (or a lower social class), especially if they are from any of the democratic areas of the country (i.e. California, New York, etc.). After all, it is the foundation of their Christian beliefs (God helps those that help themselves, etc.). You just know when the next disaster hits someplace else, they will be back to screaming "The country owes you nothing" and they should have "planned ahead".

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
