You are not alone on that... I am only running half my machines this summer due to the cost of running them...

already shut down one after seeing the electric bill...think I got too used to seeing the bill being half that amount from only being home one day a week while traveling for work... :doh:

Post by: pwrguru on April 23, 2011, 08:27:07 AM
With me it isn't so much the machine running cost as it is the a/c running to keep the house cool with the added heat... The a/c runs enough with just the normal Florida heat..... :rofl:  :rofl:

Shut down for 2 weeks and my bill dropped $100. That's an incentive  :frank:

but you also had no lights, heat, ac, refrigerator never opened, no washer or dryer, no TV, ..... for 2 weeks

$100 is a nice savings

soooooo...... for the rest of the summer..... :whistle:

Honour?  Most of us would have been quite happy to do without the bloody mess thanks very much!  :doh:  It was nothing but trouble from start to finish for the people that live here and put the state so far into debt we won't see daylight for decades!  >:(

If the companies were genuinely "too big to fail" then the execs should have been jailed and asset stripped as part of the bailout (treason will do for a charge) rather than given bonuses.


Title: Re: Serious Crunchers - Third Time's a Charm!
Post by: Ghost Plane on April 26, 2011, 06:01:35 PM
NOTHING should ever be too big to fail. If you screw up, you screw up. It's not like the economy didn't crash regardless  ::)

Like I said, asset stripped and jailed for treason.  What those execs did destabilised the entire country and brought more than one nation to their knees as a consequence.  General population, too.  No protection wing.

The banks and Wall Street buy all the security they need by supporting just about every Republican in Washington.  I can't remember the bastids name but the newly minted GOP congressman put in charge of bank regulation back in January stated that his job wasn't to regulate banks but to help them.  You can use your own imagination to fill in what that help could be.
