Wake up.
How do you figure Keystone was/is gonna lower what we pay for oil? Show me Keystone:

They see it.

The wingnut code requires them to be silent about it.

Nobraina is not one of Waxturd's sockpuppets.

He's stupid, but not nearly as stupid as the Waxturd clan.

There is a difference between a meter that can be read remotely by a passing utility truck to obtain your usage since the last reading and a so-called "smart meter" that records usage patterns and can be used to restrict power supply when desired.

The discussion is largely academic because all meters will soon be "smart meters", whether you like it or not.

Another tidbit of possibly interesting news...

President Obama and Hillary Clinton are today taping a joint interview for “60 Minutes” which will air on Sunday, NBC’s Kristen Welker confirms. This interview is only going to fuel speculation about Clinton’s possible presidential bid in ’16, and it looks like Obama is giving her a VERY BIG embrace. Moreover, you have to wonder what Vice President Biden is thinking about this interview.

Sounds more like I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine to me especially after Hillary defended this administration in front of Congress about the Benghazi fiasco.

It's all about protecting the party - not what's in the best interest of the country.

Of course they can. Look at your electric bill. They know your usage patterns and can react quickly to dramatic changes, up or down.

That's how they catch the indoor pot growers.

That's how they catch the ones who bypass the meter.

But the wingnuts have to ratchet up fear.

It gives them something to do.

Smart meters are part of the new smart grid, which America is years behind in creating.

Our electric network is a national embarassment.

these nitwits think they somehow have a 'right to privacy' in their electric use.

Next, they'll tell us their right to hide their electric usage is a Constitutional right!!

Yes they can , if you are in a residential neighborhood and average power bills are say 200 dollars and someones is 1200 dollars red flags will go up , I got a bill from dominion power once for over 2000 dollars but it was from an extra 0 on the bill and it took me forever to get it settled .

Maybe some of you didn't get this.

Republicans in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia - all controlled at the state level by the GOP - have proposed awarding their Electoral College votes by congressional district instead of the winner-take-all approach used by every state except for two. No state is moving quicker than Virginia where state senators are likely to vote on the plan as soon as next week.

If this had been in place last year, Romney would have won by a signficiant margin.

It will change the political landscape significantly in 2016 if this happens.

No comments from anyone?

That's not accurate, but you can check for yourself.

The problem at present is that interest rates are at artificially low levels because of government policy.

You think it's ok for them to change the rules when they can't win under the rules that have existed for 200+ years??

What it proves is that they know they can't win elections unless they gerrymander voting districts and changing the Electoral College rules.

It won't work any better than all of Rmoney's lies did.

Then there's this:

""Top Florida Republican Opposes Electoral Vote Change
Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford (R) doesn't agree with Republican efforts around the country to change the way electoral votes are allocated, the Miami Herald reports.

Said Weatherford: "To me, that's like saying in a football game,'We should have only three quarters, because we were winning after three quarters and the beat us in the fourth. I don't think we need to change the rules of the game, I think we need to get better."

This is lengthy but important.
As the Republican National Committee concludes its three-day meeting in Charlotte, N.C., Republicans are looking to improve their standing in time for the next presidential election. They want to do a better job reaching out to Latinos, they want to soften their tone when it comes to social issues, and they want to narrow their technological and get-out-the-vote operation gap with Democrats.
Here's the big news...
Some Republicans are looking to change the Electoral College system in battleground states that Democrats have won in the last two cycles. As the Washington Post reports, Republicans in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia -- all controlled at the state level by the GOP -- have proposed awarding their Electoral College votes by congressional district instead of the winner-take-all approach used by every state except for two (Maine and Nebraska).“No state is moving quicker than Virginia, where state senators are likely to vote on the plan as soon as next week,” the Post says.
That would give the GOP a HUGE advantage: The Republicans advocating these changes say they would give smaller communities more of a voice in presidential battleground states. But there’s a bigger story here: The moves would give the GOP a significant advantage due to the fact that redistricting has concentrated the Democratic vote to just a handful of congressional districts in these states. Take Virginia, for example: Obama won the state in 2012 by four percentage points and by about 150,000 votes -- and he took all of the state’s 13 electoral votes. But under the proposed changes, Mitt Romney would have won nine of the state’s electoral votes to Obama’s four. Put another way, if every electoral vote in the country was awarded by congressional district, Romney would have defeated Obama, 276 to 262 in electoral votes according to Emory University’s Alan Abramowitz. And if only the states of Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin were changed to this system, Obama would have BARELY won, 271-267, Abramowitz adds.
This should raise a few eyebrows.

Yet you reject the Libertarian Party approach to balancing the federal budget, a central principle.
Not at all but I do believe that debt is worse than higher taxes and since this is the people's government I believe y'all need to pay for the government you demand. Its up to me if I'm willing to stay here and pay along with you though I've never voted for any of y'all's excessive spending.
