"Sam Eagle", I know that to maintain equipment and plants for a two week perioD where the temp hardly ever got above freezing is similar to preparing your roof to be hit by a meteor....The cold blast was an anomaly that probably will not happen again in anyone's lifetime that reads this newspaper...so, why get so excited and revved up to have the plants maintained to prepare for a once in a 100 year occurrence...seems like a waste of time and money. We always seem to have more than enough electricity in August for the hottest of weather which happens "every year"

Not pay for infrastructure? Are you aware thAT the state of Texas is in the middle of upgrading/updating it's electrical grid to the tune of several $billions of dollars? That doesn't sound like neglect of infrastructure to me.

You durn right I *itch and complain about taxes cause I'm certain everyone in America that works for a living is paying too much taxes. I see and hear of really silly projects almost everyday that are payed for by taxpayer money and I think "my taxes could be a whole lot lower if they'd stop spending money on most of those really, really stupid projects". As for property taxes not going down...I believe my tax statement says: Property taxes owing to ******Ind School District, Taxes owing to the city of *****. If you have a problem with high property taxes shouldn't you take that up with your City Council or your School Board? And, most average intelligent people (I suppose that wouldn't include you) know that the state of the economy regulates tha amount of property taxes. Over the last 3 or 4 years, the values of almost every house in the state of Texas has declined which means that the applicable tax rate (unless it has been raised) times your house value should have equaled a lower property tax bill, and when times are better, the value of houses increase which also increases property taxes...so, property tax bills are largely the results of the overall economy and the health of the housing market.

And, yes, I repeat....the stuff you "Sam Eagle" are complaining about is just sheer, unadulterated, spacey "DRIVEL".
