So, you're saying that the power companies are producing energy that is NOT being used? So, where's it all going? Simply disipating into thin air?
If there is all this excess energy, why are there all the excessive electric bills?
Why does the electric company pander for energy share for the poor folks? Why not just give them all this extra energy floating around out there instead of letting it go to waste?
Better go back to your brain trust 'cause your broke!

I would imagine he went for the gas engine for lower up front cost and regular gasoline being cheaper then diesel.

If you take a barrel of oil and refine it in to gas you get two gallons but if you refine it in to diesel you get three gallons .

Europe is ahead of us on this as the selection of diesel cars is many and I have road in a BMW diesel and you could not tell any difference from it's gas counter part.

But , we Americans are a hard headed lot and don't want to part with our gasoline engines even though over time it would save crude oil and a ramp up of diesel fuel production would bring down the cost of the fuel as well as the cost of home heating oil and jet fuel the airlines are complaining about.

I had two different friends both had small pick ups one made by Toyota the other Isuzu that had four cylinder diesel engines that ran so well we joked the body would rust away and the engine would keep on going to the point they would need to order a new pick up minus the engine and drop in the old engine.

Both companies discontinued the diesel engine and we said of course they did , once bought you had no reason to go back to them for a new truck.

Ford motor company said , not to long ago they won't bring the diesel small car to the USA.

Between the Government and the Corporations you could pull your hair out and today I don't have enough hair to spare.

Hmmm. Then I must be different than most Americans on a hot summer night. When I'm hot, I don't want to sleep in discomfort, so I run my AC all night long. I tend to think that most people do. After all, nights are when the electric companies give us these warnings about using too much electricity.
Golf carts belong on the golf course. Cars belong on the road. When you attempt to use golf carts for reliable transportation, that's when you experience problems.
LOL ... hey it's a free country you can run up your electric bill to your heart's content - yemoron!!

if its a Free country we be allowed to use what ever type of light bulbs we want to use but its not that way because of the Federal Government ability to regulate under Artile 1 Section 8 Clause 3 known as the Commerce Clause in the US Constitution.

Phase-out of incandescent light bulbs

Federal legislation

In December 2007, the federal government enacted the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which contains maximum wattage requirements for all general service incandescent lamps producing from 310–2600 lumens of light. However, these regulations never became law, as another section of the 2007 EISA bill overwrites them, and thus, current law, as specified in the U.S. Code, "does not relate to maximum wattage requirements."

The efficiency standards will start with 100-watt bulbs and end with 40-watt bulbs. The timeline for these standards was to start in January 2012, but on December 16, 2011, the U.S. House passed the final 2012 budget legislation, which effectively delayed the implementation until October 2012.

Light bulbs outside of this range are exempt from the restrictions. Also exempt are several classes of specialty lights, including appliance lamps, rough service bulbs, 3-way, colored lamps, stage lighting, and plant lights.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phase-out_of_inc...

Article 1, Section 8

Clause 3. To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

Congress has the power to impose regulations on interstate and international business. This "interstate commerce clause" has been quite controversial in the history of constitutional law; for a long time, judges tended to read the clause narrowly, overturning federal laws they deemed focused mainly on regulating economic activity within states rather than between them. Since the 1930s, however, judges have tended to read the clause broadly, allowing the government to regulate all kinds of economic activity—by setting a national minimum wage, for example.

The song is not a political statement it means that “man is a slave to his possessions.” If you have nothing left to lose, you're not tied down to anything and you're free. You can wander around anywhere, just pick up and go. From a grammatically correct standpoint it should read, "Freedom's just another word for having nothing left to lose."

In Kristofferson words:“When I wrote that, I was trying to show that freedom is a double-edged sword and that you may be free, but it can be painful to be that free. But maybe at the very end, when you leave, you will be free when you've nothing else to lose, you know, when you're gone.”

I don't think they have TOTAL control, but can take it. Enron is a great case showing what happens with 'capitalism' gone a muck in the energy industry with the only regulators being the SEC.

Many songs not penned in a political tone become political rallying cries never the less.

Enron had no governmental-type authority over energy distribution and usage.
