Because you sure can't tell it by my bill. And I promise you, it's not from using my heat in excessive amounts since it's been so cold. Why, you may ask? Because Wifester is the Heat Nazi. Just ask our friends Lilley and Cole. Poor Cole shivers, actually shivers when she's visiting here. But don't take me, Lilley and Cole's word for it, here yah go, I'll even provide solid, tangible evidence. For those of you who may be like me, and need that evidential proof, I offer
See that?? And may god, allah, buddha, jehovah, krishna, kali, and ani difranco help the poor soul who tries to ebb the thermostat up past the 65 degree mark.
Now, I don't expect you to take a single piece of evidence as proof beyond doubt that my electric bill must be wrong, so I offer you
This is me, right now, at my computer blogging, under the covers of a blanket because the heat nazi, I mean my lovely wife becomes possessed with the spirit of a heat loathing demon if the heater comes on. It's not pretty, trust me. We build fires and snuggle under blankets and keep warm that way.
So my bill to the firelog people being exceptionally high right now I accept, my light bill? Not so much.
We're in the middle of a recession and the utilities are going to stick it to us like this? Disgusting. More people have lost their jobs than any other period in my lifetime and I read today that the murder/suicide rate in families has increased dramatically recently. They attribute it to the increased number of job losses leaving people distraught, hopeless, and they end up killing their families and themselves. That makes me so sad.
Just since Monday, 100,000 people have lost jobs in this country. 100,000! That's 50,000 people loosing a job per day. What? Outrageous. Now The post office wants to cut delivery of mail back to 5 days a week.
and this just in...the house just passed $819 Billion on the stimulus plan. No one yet has been able to provide a reasonable explanation as to where in the hell this money is coming from I guess we all need to get us one of those printers that the Fed seems to have gotten their hands on.
