This video is painful to watch, Linda Hidalgo (D) simply isn't qualified to run the office of emergency management for Harris County.

Quote:
At a 1 p.m. news conference, Channel 2 Investigates reporter Joel Eisenbaum questioned Bob Allen, of Harris County Pollution Control, about the lack of data at the Deer Park site. Allen indicated that the sensor may be down for maintenance. Eisenbaum also pointed out that the sensor at the Clinton site has also been down since 9 a.m.

Eisenbaum asked Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo to release the air quality data that ITC compiled. Hidalgo replied that ITC has released it.

Channel 2 Investigates called ITC to get the data. ITC told Channel 2 Investigates, “We have not released anything yet.”

This is the kind of incompetent, deer in the headlights representation that straight ticket voting gets you. I hope everyone coughing and choking on toxic smoke in Houston today realizes that elections have consequences and this is one of the bad ones. These amateurs are clueless, they didn't even take the time to read the air quality results that they had available before going on the air live to answer questions about air quality.

Also with consequences: going against the will of your constituents and putting their money into something they don't want. That's why Ed Emmett's not there anymore.

I despise straight-ticket voting all the same.

Seems like a great time to talk about laying off a few hundred firefighters doesn't it?

Well it looks like her constituents put their money and lives in the hands of someone who isn't capable of handling her job. The people who voted for her (whether they realized it or not) will be enjoying the fruits of their labor today and for the foreseeable future.

Last November when Harris County elected Lina Hidalgo, a 28-year-old socialist with no political experience, to be our county judge, some people were concerned. What if she has no idea what she's doing? What if her inexperience and far-left politics are damaging to our community? What if there's a major disaster and she sits on her thumbs while everyone panics because she's not prepared to deal with any form of crisis?

Earlier this week "what if" became "welcome to reality".

If you live anywhere in Houston, America's fourth biggest city, you probably noticed the giant cloud of smoke emanating from ITC, a Deer Park petrochemical storage facility on Houston's east side. Should we be concerned that a giant black cloud can be seen from miles away?

No, said Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo. Don't worry! Everything is fine. Your health isn't at any risk, she assured us, and you have nothing to worry about. A giant black cloud of smoke that can be seen from outerspace can't harm your health because a 28 year old socialist said it's okay.

Hmm there was maybe two sentences that she said. The EPA guy seemed more incompetent than her and he was appointed by state GOP officials. He should've known if a station was out.

I'm more concerned with state politicians that failed to act after the presidential's emergency is taking Hurricane Harvey recovery funds away from Houston. Neither Cruz nor Cornyn voted for the bill to rescind the emergency declaration at the border, which means funding is being taken from Hurricane Harvey.

Here I was thinking we were conservatives that didn't need the government to tell us what to do or regulate business that handles toxic chemicals in the place where we live, and that we could take care of ourselves when TSHTF.

Which basically happened during Harvey, when it was Bubba and his bass boat saving people, not Ed Emmett, not anyone else from the gubmint, all while the Arkema plant in Crosby was blowing up.

You should be more concerned that your state Senators Cruz and Cornyn didn't vote to overturn Trump's emergency declaration at the border so that means disaster money that was to be used for Texas, Florida, an d PR is now going to be used to build a wall. Well it looks like the state citizens of Texas put their money and lives in the hands of people who aren't capable of handling their job. The people who voted for them (whether they realized it or not) will be enjoying the fruits of their labor today and for the foreseeable future.

Maybe if they just built a wall around Deer Park, this wouldn't have happened. Walls work, amirite?

Yeah straight ticket voting is bad. All those folks that straight ticket voted for GOP are now having their senators and representatives not voting for the resolution to overturn Trump's money grab for border wall money at the expense of Hurricane Harvey recovery money.
