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

Power here is about to jump 20% across the state thanks to government mismanagement and paying for the bloody olympics.  Doh

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!  Angry

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.

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  Roll Eyes

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.

Once or many times, there's not one that can be trusted to work for the good of your nation on either side of the party game.  Doh
