re: People forget how well Aaron Brooks could sling the ball - fwtex on 2/27/21 at 1:09 pm
Didn't a QB throw the ball 75 yards or so while on his knees? How well did that work out for his career in the NFL? Arm strength is a minimum standard for NFL QB kinda like being able to lift 25lbs for a minimum physical job. Just because a person can lift 200lb does not mean they are more qual...

re: Foreclosure homes for sale - fwtex on 2/25/21 at 11:52 am
Banks have had a moratorium on foreclosures since March 2020 and that will likely continue for another few months. The only properties being foreclosed right now are vacant properties. Buying foreclosures after the foreclosure sale is no different than any other property purchase for an individu...

re: Why is TRUMP trying to crawl back to Big Tech? - fwtex on 2/24/21 at 10:00 am
Trump is doing the right thing in playing by big tech rules in order to get his case into the court system with an end goal to add another nail into big tech through the courts. If Trump simply moved to other platforms then that gives the tech monopolies more power with the ability to de-platform...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Will we learn the Texas power grid disaster was a political hit job? - fwtex on 2/21/21 at 10:17 pm
I am going to double down on the political hit. Green energy is not taking a hit because the left is saying the wind turbines were not required to have deicing rings and blaming it on lack of Texas regulations by Republicans. As I question more about the actions, we were in a critical situation ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Will we learn the Texas power grid disaster was a political hit job? - fwtex on 2/19/21 at 10:25 am
I am just throwing this out there based on the political environment since 2019. Chaos and disruptions in the populace has been used for political gain. It was used to take the WH in 2020 and TEXAS has been a desperate goal of Democrats to take over for the last two election cycles. How could ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (13)
re: “Texans freezing to death” is fake news - fwtex on 2/18/21 at 5:23 pm
Wasn't there a huge power outage during a Noreaster a few years ago? I seem to recall the MSM reporting on this for several days. Also, at the same time Texas had power issues, power grids up north were also having to do controlled blackouts and yet they are supposed to be prepared for this weat...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: ERCOT blames outrage on, your guessed it, Covid - fwtex on 2/17/21 at 9:17 am
This Ercot debacle reminds of the New Orleans Levee board that also failed to do their job. It was a great easy gig, what could go wrong? ERCOT is run by three commissioners and two are political attorneys and one is a political policy hack. I think they know they are going to hung for all this...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

So much in Crenshaws piece. 1. Shouldn't the system be designed to work efficiently in a worse case massive spike event?

re: Just talked to an NPC about the fawning media coverage the Bidens are getting - fwtex on 2/16/21 at 10:42 am
Trumps problem was that he did not have a pit bull that would fight to the death for him so he had to do it himself. Any campaign strategy for a Republican should have a Trump style attack campaign. Keep the candidate clean but be absolutely ferocious protecting them and defending them. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Sheetrock work takes patience. Too many people want to slap on a thick coat of mud and be done in one step. This will NEVER give a good result. You should plan for at least three layers if your a DIY and know how to use the knife. You need a 4",6" and 8 or 12" knife. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
