Until the next explosion, anyway.  After all, this is Texas.

Link is 502'd. Way to go, FARK. You killed another blog! You're worse than Glenn Beck circa 1990

This is in no way connected to his possibly raping and killing a woman in the 1990s.

They died free

Didn't read the article but does that headline imply that the dead guys are back at work? Must be some kind of TX thing where you only get your pension if you refuse to let trivial things like death stop you attending work.

Bears repeating.

Meanwhile, the individuals who murdered the fallen through illegal and dangerous practices?  They're "being investigated," mostly for ways to avoid blaming them and the culture that created the mess.

They should be sued to high heaven.

Good luck with that the people responsible include 20+ years of elected officials including a former president and the sitting governor that created the lax system and 0 accountability in the state.

Well they should; if possible sue them and the state of Texas.

==================

Texas utility company workers who were attempting to install smart power meters were met with more than a few people who pointed guns at them, and ordered them off their property.  Not too long after, storms took down power lines all over Texas, including the service heads on homes, which is the responsibility of the homeowner.   The same "free individualists"  were on the phone to the power company demanding that the power company repair their private property for free.

Not only am I for Texas secession, I insist.  GTFO.

What really bugs me is how unprepared the city itself was. A chemical fertilizer plant (Essentially a bomb factory) and 3 ambulances.

Kinda like near where I live. A massive natural gas processing plant, and a volunteer fire department with 2 trucks, only one ladder. Something like a third of the offshore natural gas in the US comes inland less than a mile from my house. Truth be told, if that thing ever does go up, they will have to use dental records to identify most of us in a 5 mile radius, but the closest ambulance is stationed 8 miles away. There is no evacuation plan, because there will be no warning. Pays your money, takes your chances.

BTW, this plant was built after the house was. No offer to buy it out either. I get to look outside and see the largest Bic lighter in the world every night. Nice thing is, I'll never know it happened.

No shiat; let Mexico's drug lords turn that into a war zone.  I'm not even kidding anymore.

Most of Austin and certain parts of Dallas are cool though.

Then your border is Oklahoma, Louisiana, a little bit of Arkansas, and New Mexico. I don't see the improvement.

They can take Arkansas and Oklahoma with them if they wish.  Louisiana and NM can stick around.

They only corporations that have to pay for what they do are those foreign ones that don't pay bribes campaign contributions to elected officials.

As a proud Louisiana resident, I can confidently say I don't want a foreign country on two sides of me, the Gulf to the south, and Mississippi/Alabama as my escape route, thank you very much. See Hurricanes.

Awesome. Gotta love the Texass "we don't need your 'help'....until we demand it" attitude.

This thing, and all of the pipelines supplying it have changed hands and subsidiaries so many times, it's hard to know who owns what. In 2011, Chevron, the parent company of the Henry Hub, tried to have all of the surrounding area condemned, even though most of the land, and the mineral rights with it, had been in the same families for hundreds of years.

They failed. Most of it is sugar cane fields, but underneath that cane, is natural gas. And the landowners know it.
