    Yeah, I don't want Big Brother watching what I heat my house to at night. Of course, it wouldn't affect me as I'm a low energy user and my heat is off at night but it's still none of their business.

    LOL.

    Of all the surveillance our government performs, you're worried about them monitoring the heat usage in your house? What a loon.

    Only if taxpayers like me are forced to subsidize it Jack!

    Why would I want to help others get this technology. If they want it, go buy it with THEIR money. If they can't afford it, oh well...

    I think it's fully reasonable that I will be allocated X number of "energy units" and when I'm done for the day, week, month, whatever, I'm done. The way things are going I don't think that makes me a loon at all.

    It's already been funded by the stimulus bill, but we do appreciate your concern.

    You might want to strap on your tin foil helmet a little tighter. You'll probably want to go stock up on non-perishable food as well, and start construction on a bunker underneath your house, so you'll be all set when the commies implement their "Final Solution."

    Good, then guys like you should fund it because I have zero interest in buying a low income family a meter.

    Do you?

    Jack, what people like you don't understand is that this country is not going to move left for long. If the current regime keeps up the spending, they'll be voted out....If you don't agree, I wish we could bet on it!

    I'd love to take money from you!

    Bush spent like a drunken sailor (far worse than Obama) and was elected to two terms, so recent history says you haven't a clue what you're talking about.

    Of all the possible allocations of my tax dollars, I really have a hard time ginning up outrage about this.

    But I realize it's your job to keep the outrage machine operation at high dudgeon, so knock yourself out.

    Wake up Jack....we were in an economic BOOM! You can spend during boom years, but you should contract spending during recessions.

    Oh, unless you actually believe in keynesian myth.

    If anything, its efficacy has already been shown.

    Besides, if the stimulus hadn't been passed, unemployment would likely be significantly higher and our fiscal situation more dire.

    They're trying to take over the entire healthcare system, the idea of restricting energy usage per household is reasonable not crazy.

    WAKE UP JACK.

    This is patently false. I don't really care to wake up to your ill-informed notions of what's going on in this country, but thanks.

    Well that's your opinion. Even at it's lowest level they are getting more control over insurance companies, what/who they can/cannot/have to cover, so they are gaining control of healthcare. At it's highest level many Dems want single payer which is total control although I realize that's not happening for now. But, make no mistake, a partial takeover - by dictating who gets coverage, who can be denied and what has to be covered - is in every bill.

    Not nearly what you described originally.

    Given the obvious abuses by the health insurance industry with respect to coverage and preexisting conditions, I don't see why increased regulation is a bad thing.
