Do US Senators run the county jails where you live subby?

JFC Texas news coming from texas after this freeze is like the rupture of an infected pilonidal cyst, it just keeps getting worse.

What's really farked up? It's actually within the realm of possibility that Ted Cruz submitted this headline himself.

Do those jails have unregulated power bills that could total in to the tens of thousands too?

After a while, I started thinking these were Arizona prisons. I wonder what Sheriff Joe would think.

This was a prison in Texas.

Ted Cruz was elected to represent Texas.

Are you following along, or do I need to slow down?

We'd be bombing other countries that do this exact thing to their own citizens.

So, and Texan's realizing the GOP treats them like inmates?  Or, are they upset with Democrats because inmates are being treated like Texans?

Well then why not have the smaller inmates tauntaun inside the larger ones?

And I think we should care about both of those tragedies.
Especially considering the exact same  specific actions caused both.

It was a jail. A jail is not a prison. A jail is a local facility, a prison is a state facility. Neither one are run by the federal government.

Had Sen. Cruz been in Texas what do you think the could do about a power outage and water problems at a county jail?

The larger ones should strap the smaller ones to themselves as insulation. The larger ones are more likely to survive anyhow, it's a surface area to volume ratio issue.

I heard it from a friend, the lizard people are very upset about people claiming/implying Ted Cruz is a lizard person. You keep your batshiat crazy evil humongs, k? He's 100% homo sapiens and you guys own that. We don't need that kind of negativity.

You know who else is from Texas and is like the rupture of an infected pilonidal cyst? I'll give you a hint. It rhymes with 'bed shoes'.

When a disaster strikes, a Senator can do quite a bit. They can immediately facilitate getting Federal help, and show solidarity with their constituents in their state through actually being there and helping.

They can also influence policy at the local level, and connect local leaders with resources to make that policy happen.

Or, as one could call it, show leadership. But this is Cruz we're talking about, so that's a nonstarter.

Exactly. Water that won't kill you. Water that won't trigger an immune system response. And if you can't provide that you should let these people go. And if your society is built on a system that can't provide this by default you should really look again at your basis for society. Your society sucks and you suck.

Like it or not, incarcerated people ARE a part of our society. They're at the very bottom of the heap, but they're still there. You can tell someone's character by how they treat the least among them.....

article: ' Carreon - in April on 8 charges incl aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon - said food was rationed in the days after the storm, and that..Tensions were running high in his unit, due to the small meals and restricted access to phones.  All inmates receive five free phone calls a week, but to make more calls - or to buy extra food - they need money in their commissary accounts. Carreon said his mother couldn't afford to top up his account because she lives on government financial assistance.'

wtf? - after all those years and still wanting Mommy to bail him out, when she's on assistance herself.  Poor woman to have such a rotten son.

I just Googled that phrase, and of course, it found the equivalent Reddit thread.

Then I entered "site:fark.com" and the first result had a link to the thread you're looking for. The Tauntan reference doesn't show up until page 2 of the comments, but the others got posted right away:
