I just got a letter from my electric provider (Duke Energy) wanting me to enroll in a program to "save energy" and they'll give me a 25 dollar credit. If I say yes, they send a guy out to put a remote control device on my air conditioner that will allow them (their computer) to turn on/off my air conditioner whenever they want. They claim that it will only be used during weekdays and not on any holidays, and that it will only be used for a couple minutes every half-hour. Obviously.... they can kiss my ass! What happens when the computer accidently shuts it off on friday evening and you can't get ahold of anyone until monday morning? A hammer, that's what. And here's a good question..... at what point will they make it a law that we have to have these devices? Of course, WE will have to have them but John Kerry won't have too.
