Is
Jerry doesn't set the price. He sends it to market, the market sets the price.


Why hate on Jerry? I dont like him one bit, but if the guy made money good for him.



Exactly. I wouldn't help the guy change a tire but the hate for his gas business is odd. Hate him for ruining the cowboys if you'd like though.

Yeah, Mattress Mac opened all his stores as warming shelters to anyone. He's even serving them hot food at his locations.

Anyone heard from Mark Cuban? bolt


+1 for Jim McIngvale. He's the real deal. JJ Watt got a lot of attention for his work from Harvey and deservedly so. But Mattress Mac has been helping the community in times of need before the Texans were a team.

People are talking about who’s doing what.

Well, he’s our damn senator and his state is in a major crisis right now. He needs to be doing his job and helping the people of his state. If you can’t see that’s a problem I can’t help you.

If his compatriots in the legislature would not have needlessly taken up his time and energy with a worthless showboat of a trial, maybe the need to clear his head wouldn't have been prevalent.

Wow. The cult is real. Blocks all rational thought. Resistance is futile. These are not the droids you are looking for.

Cruz has been radio silent since news of his trip broke and he just bought a ticket back for this afternoon. Apparently even he has a shame button many of the cultists do not.

He’s a tool. Always has been. Anyone regardless of political affiliation should readily be able to see that.

I would have stayed for another week and got paid for making a little speech or something.

So now that he is coming home, does that make you repentant for your two posts above?

NP sounds like my democrat sister in law. What in the heck is Cruz going to do right now to help Texans? Nothing because there isn't anything he can do at this point. I don't blame him for going to Cancun, I wish I was there.

I liked the earlier comment "Is he gonna come fix a pipe??????"
Right now the issue is best serves by our state elected officials. We only need federal assistance if they ask them.

Please refer to the Constitution
As Bill would say, "Go look it up"

Why would it? He did a chitty thing. He got caught. He backtracked because he’s a damn politician all the way through. All it does is show he’s at least able to recognize and idiotic political move better than some of the cultists who will defend him no matter what because he’s got an R by his name.

I bet you voted for Beto, didn't you?

Tell us all what super powers Beto would have wielded to save us all from the nasty winter storm?

I looked it up and didn't find anything. What did he do that was "chitty" and got caught? If you mean going to Cancun, then I'm done with this thread. If there's something else I missed I'll certainly look at it. I dont pledge loyalty to "R's" but I certainly am a "r". If you know what that means...

No, Beto is pretty much a tool too. I don’t define my life and worldviews through the prism of politics.

Let's start over here.

I've got news for you guys. This world is an imperfect world run by imperfect men. Could some of this been avoided? Absolutely. But there is something our grandparents had that we do not. Self responsibility... I guarantee you my grandfather living in rural upshur county experienced days on end with no electricity which automatically put them out of water because they had their own well. I can remember when storms would come up them filling the sink, tubs and pots with water. When this happened grandpa still put his pants legs on one leg at a time got up and made sure grandma was warm in that house built around the turn of the century. All while getting up and working the steel mill as he was supposed to. Plants did not shut down for your life in those days. When it was all done he cranked up the saw fixed any busted pipes and kept living. No insurance no law suits. He sure wasn't on the phone screaming at some poor customer service rep or crying on the internet.

Some of that (dang sure not all of it) rubbed off on me. When I built my house I put a wood burning stove in it. I got liquid propane for furnace, stove and hot water heater. How many guys on here like the op are supposed to be older and wiser but think their salary's and 401k had bought them passed their parents troubles? Why on earth do you think men are perfect and when they fall short of perfect it will not effect you?

Have a little self respect and a little self responsibility for pete sake.

Our power went out at 2 am Monday morning and came back on at 11 am Monday. Stayed on until 6 pm and went off again and stayed off for 48+ hours straight until 6:45 last night. Still on for now fingers crossed!!!!!

Good for him. Probably more enjoyable than sitting in a cold boring house.

What was he supposed to stay here for?
