  1. Texas is a perfect example of what happens when you vote or let RepubliKKKlans govern you. Yeah sure, low taxes but on he flip side systematic breakdowns are to be expected.

    1. No federal taxes but our property taxes are among the highest in America so are our sales taxes. It almost balances out

    2. @Zan Dale : So no Federal taxes but high State taxes and high Sales taxes. Yourself personally do you think your tax system is fair and you are further ahead or behind?

  2. I like the part where the republican governor calls for an investigation into the group that he and the republicans control. Way to think things through!

  3. Now let texas secede thats what they want right I don’t get it why they vote red oh yeah gun keeping them warm

  4. How it happened: people voting for republicans
    Why it happened: republicans
    How to prevent it from happening again…

  5. Texas needs to understand that an independent state of 30,000,000 sometime needs the help of its neighbor country of 300,000,000 people. That understanding should include the decision to unite its power grid with the rest of the country and take help to fix their aging, poorly maintained and now broken mini power grid.
    In the meantime, FEMA needs to coordinate and army of plumbers to come to Texas to repair and insulate their water pipes.

    1. They don’t get resilience from connectivity do they, they seem to want to be the crazy weirdo who shuns all neighbors and is found a month after they have died.

    2. @Les The learning curve is slow, but the influx of more progressive people to live among the more regressive Texans will have an eventual positive effect.

  6. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  7. Texas mentally a third world failed state. Republican home of the rich and socially disenfranchised, notable for its lack of humanity and socialogical foundations.

  8. Communities of Color… Black people Treated Unfairly… Communities of Color… Black people Treated Unfairly… Communities of Color… Black people Treated Unfairly… Communities of Color… Black people Treated Unfairly… Communities of Color… Black people Treated Unfairly…
    24 hours a day, every other sentence…
