    quite a statement from someone claiming to be 'independent'.
    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    Even when the government may not have the best solution? Do you give them a blank check of support regardless or do you have some standards?

I think I have one old type bulb in the house, but that is due to the lamp ("it looks pretty" is the comment in this house).. and as soon as the lamp can be replaced then it goes.

    I'm willing to bet they'll find the Green Acres method more agreeable then rolling black-outs.

    Ok, here I thought you had a legitimate reason to think that. Thanks for the clarification.

    Having the choice of having my ac knocked back a few degrees versus reduced power through the whole house, which is what we were talking about, I think most people would choose the thermostat method.

    In the meantime the new lightbulbs will light the way with the same light for less money and put less of load on the whole system.

    If this were about power usage and not government infringement I would agree.

    As one of the things that can help lower the load on an already overloaded system without costing taxpayers more money and saving them money on their electric bills, it seems to me, they are doing their job of helping to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the people.

    To each his own of course. I respect your right to see it differently.

    They say the same thing about ObamaCare. Crossing the line into the home is a no no. Accomplish your goals another way.

    That's just what people say to run away when they can't deal with reality anymore and fear conflict.
