Here we have someone who goes from dripping measured sarcasm to lunatic off topic shouting. I think these people are the internet equivalent of ’bad drinkers’. Welcome to New Orleans, be careful who you let see you with that iPhone.

Make no mistake…for now you will receive a “credit” for reducing your usage during peak load times… when this becomes the “norm”, and all houses have them– you will be further penalized– or simply cutoff for using too much during peak times. You are being trained like cattle.
Self-imposed limitations on energy is now a form of altruism “to save the planet”… Later, it will become law..since it will make “so much sense”… education or rather “re-education” has gotten us to this point in the last 40 years of “recycling”, “sustainability”, “mother earth”, “being green”. However, big corporations simply buy their way to pollute. Fines are cheaper to pay than cleaning up. Then, in an effort to squash competition, they fund the tree-hugger groups (controlled opposition) to lobby for environmental laws to be passed here in USA, then they go to third world countries to loot their natural resources–since no such laws exist over there– and only the large multi-nationals can afford to do that. And new competition over here cannot break through the legislative “glass-ceiling” to be a real threat. Corporatism is nice huh?
Limiting consumption of energy is the next step. first voluntarily, then mandatorily. Privacy is gone. Liberty is gone. Freedom is gone. Is an iPhone worth it?
