Bush Family Values

We're experiencing rolling black outs here in Texas.

It's a dire power emergency that no one could have foreseen. After all, we have a Republican Governor. And Republican are constantly surprised by unforeseen events. Like the current winter storm that no one except the weather service and the media saw coming.

But there is a bright spot. Our new stadium in Arlington is exempt from the blackouts for security reasons. To make sure that the Stadium doesn't lose power, and get unsecured... Oncor (Bush family business), is cutting power to local hospitals.

Oncor understands that property is valuable, as is money. If the stadium loses power once in a while, it might cost some money. That would be bad.

But hospitals take care of human. These have no value to Oncor. The Stadium and it's property needs, outweigh the needs of the many.

Stadium losing power, BAD BAD BAD
Hospitals losing power, WHO CARES? Oncor doesn't. ERCOT doesn't.

2:51 p.m. Burst water pipes at two coal-fired power plants forced them to shut down, triggering rolling power cuts across the state, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said today, adding, this is something that "should not happen." Dewhurst said he was told that water pipes at two plants, Oak Grove and Sand Hill, forced them to cut electricity production. Natural gas power plants that should have provided back up had difficulty starting due to low pressure in the supply lines, also caused by the cold weather. The lieutenant governor said the demand placed on the Texas grid was nowhere near peak capacity. He said he was frustrated by the situation. The statewide electricity authority ordered cities across the state to start rolling power outages to cope with the crisis. - Associated Press

We've been seeing a lot of streets and parking lots go dark in the area.

The local police have started stationing empty patrol cars in strategic locations to make it look like the cops are out.
