Sounds pretty good to me. Of course if I wanted privacy and autonomy I'd just make my own electricity. If I was a paranoid nitwit I'd just sit around whining about it.

That (the one-term concept) would make Hillary even less viable as a candidate, particularly to get the Democrat nomination.
The Democrat nominee in 2016 will be selected by Obama.
I hadn't realized you were a Democrat, sounds like you have their pulse on this. Who could believe Reagan would last 8 years? I still cannot get over the fact that Bush was elected twice. I'm thinking Hillary then Cory Booker at the rate he is saving people/animals, Christie would give them a run for their money with any other Repub DOA.

This is the heart of the Obama fiscal policy. It may seem like a joke to you, but it is particularly devastating to senior citizens who depend on earnings from their savings. This policy forces senior citizens to become more dependent on the government.
On the other hand, higher interest rates would blow the roof off the federal budget and deficit.
I wasn't joking. The rates have been reduced and reduced and reduced since the Reagan years(ugh, him again)

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.

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.

http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/01/25...

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.
