    Where in the agreement do you think it explained in plain language that prices could reach $2000/day?

    And did you read the link I gave you or not? Do you think the contracts they were giving Black folk in Chicago were fair or not?

    Financial engineering. These contracts are just another asset to manipulate.

    Yeah like who in their right mind would pay that bill?? I’d dispute all charges and have the company take me to court. And then I still wouldn’t pay it, I’d just get someone to sign up for new service in my current place.


    On time even??? Shyt is lowkey comedic in a dark way

    He'll take this money, pay off his credit card debt, refill his savings and then go back to shytting on regulation and "handouts".

    Why not? The market decides right. Do you really want the government bailing out people?
    :troll:


    If this isn't a wake up call nothing will be. If that storm happened in literally any other state, most of the power would have been back on in a matter of hours. No one would be hit with outrageous surge prices either. This nonsense is a uniquely Texas problem and I do not support bailing them out. This is the government they chose, after all. If they want better...join the US grid and regulate your utility companies.

    its really not totally unprecedented , they had one or two storms, i think in 2011 i read they were thinking about regulations. also its kind of dumb to be like well, fukk any freak accidents, lets roll the dice. its like our healthcare system and covid. same shyt. nothing in this unfettered capitalism can handle even the slightest inconvenience without completely collapsing. all so a few rich people can make even more profit. its dumb af . people plan for so called unforeseen things for a reason
