Democrats took the majority in Congress in 2007, and it’s been down hill ever since.

The more I cut back the higher the bill. I feel like I’m on a treadmill. I run faster and faster but go nowhere fast.

Electricity is sky high for little towns on the CO Rockies (the NY-controlled land of gun control). Gasoline is running $3.799 for regular in some of those little towns, too. And there's this news.

...sale to the County. They lost much. According to a radio report, around $80,000 for legal fees plus whatever they had put into the place. Even some of the most remote and sparsely populated parts of the Range are regulated up like NYC, of course.

Commodities (including energy) and rental houses are the last refuge of investment for the 40 million or so investors, who get their incomes from government or government related sources.

I expect that The Won will soon assert “ownership” over all utility companies and double prices so that wind and solar power can be more desirable. At the same time, he’ll impose a surtax on utility companies so that their added income will be taxed at 100% to help buy more votes for guess-who.

Then, he will control about 20 - 30% of the U.S. economy.

After all, what could go wrong?

Let’s shut some more coal plants down, and cut the supply even more.
That should lower prices, right??

Hickenlooper signed the rural energy renewables mandate... doubling the renewable-energy costs for rural electric cooperatives.

Another reason to throw him out this fall.

Agreed. 13.5 cents a kilowatt hour! That’s a shocker! I thought of being too far from power lines here as a hardship. Maybe it won’t be so bad after all, after we get more PV modules and batteries added and more generally situated.
