Nay, senior Irked. 'Twas in the blogoshere, observed multipally at numerous "Certified Crackpot Rightwingers Only" sites. Krazies from all Korners of the Kountry are so afflicted.

Too true! Hmm

Subliminal support for the KKK is not to be tolerated, even when softened by Kat references!

That a powerful lesson about reading those eight pages of fine print in your electricity contract that cover price gouging, in Milton Freedonia. Like MFs example about not needing to license professional like physicians, as dead people will stop going to bad Doctors.

I'm investing in Texan cut-off valve futures, as the educational phase of teaching them what cut-off valves are good for has been accomplished. For a special extra fee, in an emergency, we will show them where we hid the valves, it's a very easy negotiation in the moment ouch

If you don't like paying $15,000 / kWh, then don't use electricity when there's a high demand. Sheesh! These libs believe everyone owes them a free lunch!

I keep thinking that Texas Republicans have committed the political sin of simply going too far. the theory is, when one group goes too far it is replaced with another. Given the status of Republican lunacy is all there for everybody to see this seems reasonable?

On the other hand............

Have Texas republicans gone too far...nossir! Not far enough!

Word on the streets is that Joe Biden altered the jet stream and seeded the clouds to create the winter storm as an act of warfare againsst Texas to seize control of their independent power grid.

The fact is that Democrats have gone too far and the sooner they are destroyed the sooner Texas weather will return to normal.

You have to be careful about saying things like that. Remember, their current governor actually went to war with the United States Army! Actually called up his National Guard the American army which had invaded and tried to conquer Texas.

Turned out that the Army had gone to Texas for annual maneuvers. He backed off when it was explained to him. Anyway - I thought everybody should know what the ignorant Texas governor is capable of.
