It IS an invasion and intrusion of Privacy by liberal government.
Just like the "boy stupid" ( Obama Administration ) has been trying to force Americans to accept even greater mercury risks by insisting that traditional incandescent light bulbs be replaced with Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLS).
The mercury vapor in CFLS is at a much more dangerous concentration than anything coming out of power plants.
The associated risks are magnified because the toxic vapors and dust from a broken bulb would be contained in a room or enclosed area.
Remember when you are handling a CFL that it contains potentially deadly poisons. You can recognize the bulbs because they are twisty, like Obama’s policy logic.
Procedures for/Disposal of A Broken CFL:
The same EPA that is sounding the alarm about mercury emissions from power plants has written a detailed guide explaining how to respond to a broken CFL. It involves, among other things, evacuating the room in which the breakage occurs, shutting down central heating and air conditioning, airing out the room, carefully collecting bulb fragments and dust with rolled up duct tape, and placing all cleanup materials in airtight bags in a protected area outdoors pending proper disposal. Who knew that dropping a light bulb would instantly turn a home into a HAZMAT zone?
And I didn't even cite the cost of replacing The Thomas Edisons with CFLS !!!
Now, I ask you, who are the Fkn Moron(S)??? Fkn Screw Bulbs !!!
<quoted text>So, you're saying that the power companies are run by liberals? What a fkn moron!
Smart meters will eventually replace meter readers, they already have in several Florida communities. There's no legitimate reason to refuse one.
Hah, I see that some of the ladies of leisure at The Villages are protesting smart meters claiming them an invasion of privacy.
