AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

First They Came for Our Lightbulbs…

…then they came to control the thermostats in our houses.

This is why I believe the global warming issue is very important. It is nothing more than a way for government to control even more of our lives. It is very important that people understand that the scare tactics are just a huge scam. The real motivation of the movement is to control people’s lives.

Oh yeah, John McCain and Mike Huckabee are Goracle disciples of the global warming religion. I believe Rudy Giuliani is one as well. I am fairly certain that Fred Thompson understands that it is all a bunch of crap. I don’t know where Mitt Romney stands on the global warming issue. Granted, whatever he believes about it now, he’ll probably flip positions tomorrow…

Don’t Touch that Dial!

From Protein Wisdom (and American Thinker):

I’m still fuming over the banning of the incandescent light bulb … done, no doubt, because we lowly peoples just can’t be trusted to act in our own interest … regardless of all the real problems with CFL’s, including inducing migraines and causing skin cancer. Now comes word of a proposed change to California Title 24, “236 pages of state-mandated standards for building energy efficiency”

What should be controversial in the proposed revisions to Title 24 is the requirement for what is called a “programmable communicating thermostat” or PCT. Every new home and every change to existing homes’ central heating and air conditioning systems will required to be fitted with a PCT beginning next year following the issuance of the revision. Each PCT will be fitted with a “non-removable ” FM receiver that will allow the power authorities to increase your air conditioning temperature setpoint or decrease your heater temperature setpoint to any value they chose. During “price events” those changes are limited to +/- four degrees F and you would be able to manually override the changes. During “emergency events” the new setpoints can be whatever the power authority desires and you would not be able to alter them.
