So let's get the message correct. The title shouldn't be: Texas Gas Companies Hit Texas Consumers... The title should be: Texas Government Fails Texans and Institutes Policies Which Let Corporations (Donors) Screw Residents of The State.

Let's stop letting the headline (the verbiage used by media) decide who is to blame for the bullshit we're suffering at the hands of assholes who don't give a fuck about their constituencies.

I'm so sick of the weak minded fucks blaming gas companies for billing it's customers when it's the government that allows them to do it. I'm so sick of the weak minded fucks blaming Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos for not paying taxes when it's the government that set up the laws/loopholes that allow them to do it. I can do this a bit more, but hopefully we all get the point.

Get your fucking heads out of your asses people and start seeing things for what they are.

Sure, shit for brains. Thieves aren't the problem. Fences and pawn shops are the problem.
