edit: content. frustration!
Okay, power's back on, everybody can go home! Gays and trannies, not so fast.Team coverage of how PG&E power shutdown is affecting the North Bay and how other areas are preparing for next phase (10-9-2019)youtu.be
the “resource centers” are essentially fema camps. i guess this is the end goal, to put californians in detention centers
I feel bad for the people with medical devices and shit who need power. RIP sleep apnea boomers
It doesn't necessarily have to be a red state, they just have to put some balance back into the state between the two parties so Democrats actually have to craft meaningful legislation. The Bay Area is firmly Democrat territory and they complain about their own party quite a bit.Q: Why are you shutting down power in such a short notice?
Q: But, isn't it more unsafe for customers to not have power when they really need it? Why do this?
Q: Are you mentally handicapped?
It's time for california to turn into a red state.
I think the conservation efforts were primarily a way to avoid taxing systems that weren't being maintained well (since you know the monopolies would do that) and when the cash coming in dried up due to people realizing it saved them a shitload of cash they got greedy.There's a certain irony in utility companies that encourage people to conserve water, electricity, gas, etc. and then turn around and raise their rates because "people are using less, and we can't cover our fixed costs without a rate increase."
For those affected by the power outages, one hopes things return to normal again as quickly as reasonably possible.
We all know thats never going to happen.It's time for california to turn into a red state.
California would turn into North Mexico before Republicans could get a strong hold here.We all know thats never going to happen.
Californian's could be reduced to eating corpses and shitting in the woods while Newsom and crew munch on caviar on live tv and the fine denizens of the Bay Area and LA would still go into the polling booth and rock the big D.
At this point California Democrats could endorse raping children and stomping on kittens and puppies in those exact words and they'd still win with 60% of the vote.
The only solution is the State of Jefferson and a wall as high as heaven and deep as hell on the border with LA and SF.
That article is biased as fuck, but given how shitty PG&E is and how obnoxious they've been about everything, the smugness is completely justified and it was a delight to read.this is turning realy ugly...
overnight U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Dennis Montali stripped PG&E of exclusive control over its recovery process, which threatens to put the fate of the bankrupt power giant in the hands of creditors and outsiders, wiping out the stock in the process.
Given that there's nothing to be done about the power problem at this point (besides enlisting the homeless into labor armies to clear brush around power lines and kill anyone who tries to stop them) what's your problem with that?Guys, Governor Gavin Moosecum just signed legislation that bans those tiny shampoo bottles from hotels.
So the power problem is solved.
His response to the PG&E thing is just, “Californians should be outraged”, while conveniently dodging that he was lieutenant governor while it all burnt down.Guys, Governor Gavin Moosecum just signed legislation that bans those tiny shampoo bottles from hotels.
So the power problem is solved.
The gas blast was in San Bruno. I used to live in San Mateo (a couple of cities over) and the area of the gas blast was my dad's commute route to his business in South San Francisco. Thankfully he went home early that day.Thankfully my house isnt in the shutoff zone but they keep changing who and when power gets cut for so who knows.
The real TL;DR version of this is PG&E is already declaring bankruptcy. A year or two back they were found at least partly responsible for the wildfires and forced to pay out. This, of course, after that gas blast in... Was it San Bruno?... That leveled a couple square blocks of residential property killing a modest number of people.
They cant be fucked to maintain the wires in the areas around the fire risk zones. So their answer is just to make everyone else suffer for it.
