    California: Big Brother to control your thermostat?

    http://wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=59639

    Wow. Just..wow. Gov't is becoming more and more invasive. This is so disgusting and insulting. And of course, they try to flower it up under the guise 'it's good for the consumer'. BS! Reason #4565 California needs to fall off into the ocean.

    Jesus... this is just ridiculous. California laws are horrible enough as it is without the ever-increasing electronic controls being implemented. I hate how the spokeswoman beat around the bush and played down the implications of it. This is just one more step to a more controlling government. Precedents like this open the door for even more remote monitoring of private citizens.

    At first, I couldn't believe it. But then I saw the advertising and other ...let's say pieces... on that website. I may as well get my news from the paper that gave us Bat Boy. Just right wing propaganda crap. When CNN, or even Fox news says something on the matter, then I'll take it halfway seriously. Maybe a quarter seriously, in the case of Fox news.

    I'm sure theres a precious morsel of truth, but it's probably not nearly as horrific as that website makes it sound. They are painting California to look worse than it really is.
