About TX

it can be best understood as not a sovereign state but as something more similar to the East India Company- a subsidiary of the fossil fuel industry*, which owns nearly 100% of state and national officials. Hardly surprising that Rick Perry would be the name the Kochs gave Dennison as one of their demands (along with EPA)- although he jumped ship when he got jammed up in some Ukraine business.

The fossil fuel industry is also the largest long term funder of RW insurrectionist propaganda. It needs to die.

*even the wind projects were largely financed by oil barons like Pickens.

Re: About TX

Worth noting that the mercenary gunslingers who came over to the fossil fuel disinformation industry* cut their teeth with the tobacco industry.

Rush, Pence, know any of these guys?

*approximately contemporaneous overlap between the end of the tobacco game and the fossil fuel industry learning it had a big problem. They actually knew as early as 1970 but the notion that anybody might actually object only arrived later.

Re: About TX

BTW, anybody around the "ag communications" sphere back in the day knew that tobacco had stupendous amounts of money to spread around if you were willing to carry their message.

In ag it was those "family farms."
