    Is that for real? I think we should have a 5 year moratorium on government stupidity while we study it.

    I agree, if they want to charge more for power during times of extremely high demand then thats one thing (although I would be pretty livid about it), but to take control of the thermostat in your home is about as authoritarian as it gets. I doubt even Stalin or Mao would have thought of that.

    Quoted: (What the **** is happening to this country??)
    This reminds me of the Soviet Union, what happened there was that at some point in November the Heated water that ran into every apartment in every building was turned on (usually some 2 to 3 weeks after the weather started freezing, at the end of what they determined their winter's end should be, this Heated water system would be turned off (usually 2 to 3 weeks before the outside temperatures reached anything above freezing).
    Makes you think??
    Incidentally the Russians then as now also believed they lived in a Democratic Country.

    OK, I'm about as anti-Libertarian as one can get, but even I think this is outrageous and a totally obtrusive interference on privacy. The government has no right in my home in the vague circumstances described.

    Re: State Proposes to Take Control of Home Temps

    This is one more example of Nazi Pelosi and her gang of Nannies making the personal lives of California's citizens their business. California's liberal and socialist policies are intrusive to good citizens and enable less responsible citizens to continue being irresponsible. There is no justification for politicians and utility companies to set my thermostat in my home, ever. If I am paying for my consumption, then that's all that matters. The only control over my consumption is to raise the cost of it and if I can't or won't pay it, then the decision at least still rests with me.

    But you're talking about the same state government that will pay for clean needles for junkies.

    Pelosi is a Representative for the United States House, she has nothing to do with state laws. That said, I agree with you that whoever is doing this is out of control.

    If you think she doesn't have her hands in the state government, too, you are sadly mistaken.

    But yeah, we agree its just too much.
