A Texas-Size Mess

Allow me to introduce to you, Moe, Larry, and Curly, better known as the three Texas amigos and politically incorrect stooges. If Republicans lie will more Texans die? #GOP officials keep peddling debunked claims that green energy caused the crisis.

I lived in The Lone Star State to build a broadcaster on the US Texas border towns of Eagle Pass Del Rio, where there’s a foot of snow.

There’s a phrase everyone who’s ever lived in Texas knows well, and that is, Don’t Mess With Texas but apparently not everyone. Also, everything is bigger in Texas. The statewide leadership never got the message beginning with the Governor and including a Texas Senator’s actions. The state has its own power grid, but now its leadership appears not to trust or believe in science. 

However, according to United Nations scientific researchers, humans are making Earth a broken and increasingly unlivable planet through climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution. So the world must make dramatic changes to society, economics, and daily life.

Meanwhile, an 11-year-old boy died in an unheated Texas mobile home. Authorities suspect hypothermia. A lone Texas man reportedly freezes to death sitting on a recliner as the winter storm continues to cause a mess in Texas, and while millions of Texans were dealing with a winter weather crisis US Senator Ted Cruz literally flew the coup to the Ritz in Cancun. He also reportedly abandoned his dog inside a cold house. We know someone from how they treat their own pets. In total a boy who fell through the ice, a woman who lost power: 47 deaths tied to winter storms and still counting as their politicians point fingers.

Texans are furious and are demanding his resignation. Now that he has been caught red-handed Cruz says “I’m making sure we do everything we can to get the power turned on in Texas and to make sure this never happens again.” He then went on to blame his kids admitting that it only went there because his daughters asked for a trip while school was out. 

Normally it takes a few days vacationing in Cancun, Mexico to do something really embarrassing. But for Republican Senator Ted Cruz, it took him just a few hours.

Texas’ power grid was “seconds and minutes” away from a catastrophic failure that could have left Texans in the dark literally and figuratively for months. meanwhile, officials with the entity that operates the power grid as well as public servants who have failed to serve fear that Texas Longhorn voters are mad enough and fixing to repair the damages at the polls by responding to all the dereliction of politicians’ duties.
