The left's propaganda and spin doctoring machine has spun up into overdrive now in Texas!!

Now the lefties are trying to blame the right for the disaster in Texas by blaming them for their determination for energy independence...through none other than solar and wind (both left / climate change / green initiatives which were forced on Texas by the anti-oil / fossil fuel industry)!

Unbelievable! Wait...not unbelievable...actually totally PREDICTABLE!

NYT Article

ETA - They should really change the name of this political party from 'Democrat' to...'The Finger Pointing Lynch Mob'!

SoOo....

The left is trying to say that "de-regulation" or a lack of regulations in Texas caused this.

So let's look at the left's model... one of the most regulated states in America.

California.

Do THEY ever suffer from rolling blackouts because of power consumption?

Oh wait.

They do.

EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR.

So it doesn't seem that more regulations is the cure, does it?

Just the mere thought is proof of sabotage and "crisis" management 😃

Actually...no, what I'm saying is, the swamp is trying to spin this such that it looks like Texas did all of this in the spirit of de-regulation, when in fact they did it as concessions to the bureaucracy of climate change, as a concession. Then, Texas being Texas, tried to wrest control of all of it for their own (fair enough, it was their money afterall). Along the way, Texas lost sight of their "bigger picture".

That's what I'm saying.

This is what is wrong with this country. Everything is a #ing blame game. How about just saying what can we learn from this and move on.

They’re not wrong for pointing the finger at Republicans...because they are ALL ON THE SAME TEAM behind those closed doors in DC. We don’t have two parties.

You should know me by now; I will never use Kalifornia as an example.

You can't use Kalifornia as an example of anything but CRAZY!

TIME OUT EVERYONE!

Hopefully, y'all did see my other thread on Texas...wherein I said this is EVERYONE's problem, not just the left, right?

The reason this is a separate thread is because this is a perfect example of how ONE side works to influence the actions of the other.

Sorry if this wasn't clear, but it is the point.

Excellent point.

However, history has proven, especially now, that we don't learn from history!

SOooooo, no we need to drive home points with a flipping SLEDGE HAMMER!

I don't agree. That is the fundamental problem with the economy, health care, etc..

Now we have a whole country that is obsessed with not making mistakes and not losing a single life. Hence the lockdowns.

People die. People get hurt. You cant account for everything and some times even when you do you can't cost justify putting in place things for a once in a decade or once in a century events.

Now we have a country full of businesses and politicians who can't make a "mistake" and we are crippled by the fear that something may go wrong or someone may die.

Beating home a point with a sledgehammer accomplishes nothing but to drive more fear and tons of spending in order to avoid the risks of life.

And you are exactly correct.

The left spinning it as "a problem with not enough regulation because it is a Republican state" is pure BS.

Of course, they are a Democratic party run state.

Oh, wait...
