i guessing that wasnt a rolling blackout you experienced today... but they sure could come once it starts to heat up and energy consumption is in higher demand.

I wish it was just one politician. Look up two santa clauses. Democrats passed very popular things and the Republicans realized their days are limited so they started doing things specifically designed to hurt the democrats while at the same time selling the republicans as the party of the people. Sadly they have focused on that so much that staying in power comes first and their ideals come second. At that point, they don't really have ideals.

I mean, party of the people? Last tax cuts they did were close to $2T for the rich. Some people did benefit, but I sure as hell did not. Sure, trickle down theory does work, they just don't tell you that what trickles down is yellow and it is not lemonade. I think the Russians have a video of the great pumpkin getting a demonstration of trickle down theory.

Our only hope for the TX grid to improve is massive grants to pay for it with good rules and enforcement, not like the broadband ones. Do research on broadband grants and you find that every time it was tried the rules were lax and abuse rampant. Millions to 10's of millions in bonuses to execs for landing the grants, then running fiber in areas they lived or using it to replace cables they had to replace anyway.

I think that is a matter of opinion. Nothing they have done is popular with me or most the folk I hang with.

My wife and I benefitted as did my son and daughter. In addition this past year was the first time my health insurance premium actually went down since Obamacare was enacted. Of course it had gone up nearly 150% through my employer so the decrease got me nowhere close to pre Obama care premiums or coverage for that matter but I do appreciate keeping some more $ in my pocket.

Social Security and Medicare were very popular when they were passed. They have been under attack and underfunded since then. Constant smear campaign as well. People seem to want them to go away now, but don't remember the days of retired people living on the streets eating cat food and don't remember that those programs did so much good.

Don't get me wrong, I may hate the current Republican party and the stuff they pull in the name of power, but I don't like the Democrat party either. All these people spend their lives trying to get into a position of power, and the last person that should have power is someone that wants it.

If people were smart they would actually read legislation that is brought into congress then written into law. And our freedoms are becoming less and less everyday into the one rule world order system. Seems all fine and dandy til you're a robot for the puppet govt. Take Chyna as your example. They been wearing masks for over a decade. Get used to it. This is the Republicans last chance before its purge night and all hell breaks loose. Abbott doing a wonderful job opening it all up but unfortunately the criminal will take full advantage. Especially since everything is a misdemeanor... there's like 16k murder trails on parole waiting for cases in Houston. !!!!!

Where are you getting these facts? I think you mean “murder trials” but what does “parole” waiting even mean?

The 1% owns all social media, 90% TV, and news... they're using demoncrats as puppets but sadly itll end uglier for them, well at this point markets are so inflated that if you paid attention every support level is now being bought on major avgs... why.. they can't let the market slide, Bidens PPT( Presidential Power Traders. I call them), HFs have made their market . Biden was campaigning to shut down private prison. They're up 100% in 2 days. Super inflation coming and atrocities in the streets. Am I fear mongering? Sure does look like a nice rounded top on SP.... CPI comes out tomorrow. China already super high 9% inflation yesterday.

Last hope to save merica. Now dems can just go at it alone and put us into a super inflation where we are controlled by the 1%.

Don't start me on this. Watch breaking bond on fox26...oh my goodness. These liberal judges just letting murderers with 3-4 felonies go. I was surprised even Kim Ogg/Houston Police Chief were blaming the liberal judges.

We have become worse than Chicago/New York/Los Angeles.

Not wading into this political dumpster fire, but want to point out that people in China "have been wearing masks for over a decade" because the air pollution is horrible... It's their personal choice.

Hong Kong? See how their personal choice turned out. You are told what to do. They have a social system ranking there

Hong Kong is a unique situation and, despite troubling recent events, still has many freedoms that China-proper does not. Regardless, my comment was about why people in China have worn masks for years, not about any political policy.
(P.S. Doubling down on bad info only weakens your credibility)

It’s not just Hong Kong. I lived in Seoul, Korea and it was very common for people to wear masks while out and about. I imagine other eastern Asian cultures do this as well. When you’re living in a city the size of Seoul that is so densely populated and you’re in close proximity at all times, it makes sense. Plus, the yellow dust periodically coming from China clouds the sky and no one wants to breath that.
