Well, Rush Limbaugh's gone. Died at 70 from lung cancer.

I never listened to the guy.

He was boisterous but I think genuine. I never loved his show but form time to time I’d hear a clip and think “he’s not wrong.”

nah, dude was indefensible. accusing Michael J. Fox of faking parkinsons, extreme racism, and had a segment that mocked people dying of AIDS to start.

[Only registered users can see links.] :
Texas politicians and regulators were warned after the 2011 storm that more “winterizing” of power infrastructure was necessary, [Only registered users can see links.] by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation shows. The large number of units that tripped offline or couldn’t start during that storm “demonstrates that the generators did not adequately anticipate the full impact of the extended cold weather and high winds,” regulators wrote at the time. More thorough preparation for cold weather could have prevented the outages, the report said.

“This should have been addressed in 2011 by the Legislature after that market meltdown, but there was no substantial follow up,” by state politicians or regulators, said Ed Hirs, an energy fellow and economics professor at the University of Houston. “They skipped on down the road with business as usual.”
Other quotes, this is what I believe Texas calls "all hat, no cattle":
Texas’ grid is also mostly isolated from other areas of the country, a [Only registered users can see links.] . It has some connectivity to Mexico and to the Eastern U.S. grid, but those ties have limits on what they can transmit. [...]

“If you’re going to say you can handle it by yourself, step up and do it,” said Hirs, the UH energy fellow, of the state’s pursuit of an independent grid with a deregulated market. “That’s the incredible failure.”
And the true Republican ideal:
“Clearly we need to change our regulatory focus to protect the people, not profits,” said Tom “Smitty” Smith, a now-retired former director of Public Citizen, an Austin-based consumer advocacy group who advocated for changes after in 2011 when Texas faced a similar energy crisis.

“Instead of taking any regulatory action, we ended up getting guidelines that were unenforceable and largely ignored in [power companies’] rush for profits,” he said.

Cruz family texts leaked lol

Quote:
Text messages sent from Ms. Cruz to friends and Houston neighbors on Wednesday revealed a hastily planned trip. Their house was “FREEZING,” as Ms. Cruz put it — and she proposed a getaway until Sunday. Ms. Cruz invited others to join them at the Ritz-Carlton in Cancn, where they had stayed “many times,” noting the room price this week ($309 per night) and its good security. The text messages were provided to The New York Times and confirmed by a second person on the thread, who declined to be identified because of the private nature of the texts.

[Only registered users can see links.] SCOTUS is going to hand the election to Tru-
The Supreme Court on Monday declined to review a series of challenges by Pennsylvania Republicans to the state’s expansive mail voting policy.

The development marked long-deferred action on the pro-Trump litigation that was filed in the heat of the 2020 election and had sought to upend President Biden’s victory in the key battleground state.

So, Biden bombs Syria and kills the minimum wage hike, confirming every fear progressives had. Soon they'll renege on getting $2000 checks to everyone in the middle class by limiting who gets it (to appease their donors). The establishment is back! And it absolutely sucks

But Im sure Mario and zaph care more about trumps tax returns LMAO

Minimum wage hike was never going to happen, not nationwide at least. There's way too much evidence and studies that have been done to show that it actually would kill a lot of jobs--companies in almost all cases where minimum wage was raised decided to terminate those jobs and automate them using technology instead, where they could. McDonald's invested in touch screen ordering, don't need cashiers, etc. There really isn't as much support for that as people think. It's worked in some states like NJ and CA because the cost of living is way too high to justify keeping it at the federal rate.

The Senate seems to be trying to kill the minimum wage hike.
