American conservatives have a lot more in common with middle eastern Muslims than they'd care to admit.

The Texas power outage was horrible. It happens every ten years or so when it gets below freezing. This time it was by far the worst ever. Do you think they learned any lessons? Are they immediately planning on winterizing their power so this never happens again? Are they planning on taking care of this so in the future Texans aren’t screwed and Texas has to ask the Federal Government for help again? Nope. They have already blown this event off and are going to do nothing.

Jim Wright, a member of the Texas Railroad Commission, which regulates the state’s oil-and-gas industry, said the agency isn’t planning to require oil-and-gas companies to winterize their equipment.

If it ONLY hurts their citizens/constituents, and doesn't inconvenience companies, Texas doesn't care. For that matter, 75% of the GOP run states would do the exact same thing.

Laughable that they continue to try to blame Dems and the "Green New Deal" for their outage when, you know, there is no Green New Deal in current law, especially not in Texas.

It’s much easier to sell that load of crap to their constituents than the truth.
