Re: So, tell me, who's fault is it that all those people don't have ....

So, tell me, whose fault is it that all those people don't have any source of backup heat or lights?  Where we are, when it storms, we go in the house put a piece of wood on the fire, get the kerosene lamp down off the shelf, &  sit down read a book.

  Apparently, all those people in those Red states expect somebody to take care of them all the time.

I  recall ,   T  X  U  ( International  Co. )  - then  Energy  Future  Holdings  - then,  Texas  Competitive  Holdings  - ( 2014 spin off )  lastly , Vistra  Energy  - - -

Numerous  ''' file-ings ''' ,  created  from  1999  privatizing  of  Texas  Legislature  '' SB 7 '' ( DEREGULATION )  has  brought  it  to  this destination  point  of,   can't  take  care  of  our  own ,  C  T  C  O  O  O   -   ?

Accounts  receivable's ,  during  the  post  1999  goings  on ,  was  a  marketing  challenge  - personally  -  -  - 

Which brings up a point of  Texas  politicians , brow beating,   Ethanol  incentives ,  finding  themselves  with  an  energy shortage , with  windmills  '' all  dressed  up  &  no  where  to go '' in a  petroleum  environment legacy -  -  -

Leaves  US  asking , Was  There  enough  K Watts,   to  keep  the  pipeline  pumping  stations  running ,  on  the  route  from Cushing  Ok.  to  Freeport Tx ,  yesterday  -  while  households  are  dark  - ?   

How  would  one  market  those  headlines - ?

Many moons ago I worked in the machine shop for a company that made generators.  VP of marketing kept at least 4 semi trucks full of product staged at an area dealership during hurricane and ice season.  Never failed to find a home for those units and helped alot of people.

Len always sold those units at a discount.  Said he couldn't sleep with himself if he didn't.

Rick, in this socialist utopia they got people packed into apartment complexes like sardines, it`s not like you can have a wood burning stove or generator humming in the hallway.    What happened to the "global warming"?   Yeah yeah yeah "weather", how much cold weather do we have to convince the "scientists" that we have a cold climate?

Have to wonder what color the sky is in Ricks world...

Re: So, tell me, who's fault is it that all those people don't have ....

It appears we really missed the boat by not building fusion generator cars and trucks.   or a hydrogen burning fleet.... Or why on earth didn't we build sand burner propulsion SUVs..... 

Doesn't it seem silly that we started building finished products before we built the supply chain to mass produce or service them..... My wife is somewhat that way.  Usually starts the wardrobe out with a pair of shoes.  or plants the garden without a water source.  Cool glasses on Al Rocker go down the same line of thought.

How long before the grocery has empty shelves.... ?      Here we decided to make chili ----- don't have the ingredients and its 12 below......   If it were 70 degrees, she would need three trips to the store just to get the beans soaked..... She should be designing tomorrows transportation.
