As reported earlier, wind farms, making up 25% of the energy in Texas, are not functioning tonight. The blades are frozen. People are freezing, hospitals aren’t functioning, and communication is down. Windmills are not reliable and freeze up in the cold. They aren’t reliable in general. The Green New Deal will take away our fossil fuel and substitute windmills and solar, which are not ready for market.
We’ve gone from energy independence to the prospect of rolling blackouts under the new administration. This is what Democrats want for all of America.
Here is Mississippi we are seeing a 100 year cold snap, but it was colder in the Winter of 1899. It’s at times like this that I wish the Global Warming Cult was right. Because of the freezing rain some power lines are down, most of us have fossil fueled backup generators. In many places the Internet is down, but good old over the air TV and AM Radio (WWL) comes in loud and clear for weather updates. Fortunately, we haven’t bought into the “Green Craziness” here and out power plants are up and running.
I moved to Mississippi for retirement to get away from the just plan stupid Liberals who seem to love having incompetent Bureaucrats running their lives. Government doesn’t hire smart people, they hire “educated” people and with our failing education system we now just have morons running Government. Most of the people in Government today would be able to hold a decent Job in the private sector. Why do we give people like this any power over our lives?
Today’s cold snap is just another reminder that Big Government is dangerous. Government is good at breaking things so they are good at things like the Military. We shouldn’t give Government much more power than that. The Market Place is a much better place let technology decide things. Even the problem with the Tech Giants would be under control if the Government would have used common sense and the Monopoly and Ant-Trust Laws. What we saw was the Government’s lust for power and they got in bed with the Tech Giants to increase Government power over us. We need to strip Government of almost all their power to influence society and start telling Government what to do again or America will be like California. See this stupidity creeping into Texas is just another warning sign! The Dream that Liberals have for America is little more than a terrible nightmare!
The marching morons of the “renewable” movement have scored their victory, and now the people depending on that power are discovering that it is not dependable.
Winter and snow tends to keep ’em inside their homes but are they going to be so docile when summer rolls around and their air conditioners are shut down?
Will they demand that more wind farms be built when the wind stops?
The streets are cleared but the snowdrifts are two feet tall and some mailboxes got taken out by snowplows in the glorious people’s collective unity.
Dollar store snow shovels are useful only for the porch or walkway to the door and that is not recommended for those with health conditions.
That nurse had to spend the night as the car got boxed in by snowplow maneuvers.
Nine degrees out and we are hoping comrade kommissar Kerry can swoop in with the jet of destiny and thaw some of it out.
It may be too late to stop the stale Russia 1917-1918 replay but at least we can mock the shit out of the woketopia FAIL.
I’m wishing for 9 degrees. Temps were -27 this morning, up here near Fargo. Sympathy (but not much) for those snowbird types who commute South to Texas for the mild winter weather.
All you tree huggers: Enjoy the global warming.
In many ways, America deserves this. National suicide has no appeal to me.
(S)elections have consequences. Sorry Texas but you’ll have to suffer for Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Detroit, Chicago.
Think of the unity and it will warm you up. (not really)
If those go up near you then move and any local bird populations will literally be chopped up.
Feeling warm and toasty? Thank the coal and oil industry.
