If you’re pissed about “Obama Care,” wait until you read this.
Not only is President Obama meddling with our hospitals, doctor’s offices, insurance companies and personal birth control, he’s also cavorting in our kitchens with Betty Crocker and Aunt Jemima.
Now he’s had the audacity to demand that the manufacturers of our Mix Masters, Keurigs, VitaMixes and all other appliances re-engineer them so they will no longer be the watt-guzzling budget suckers of American households.
Before you say, “So what?” listen to this: these sweeping changes could save consumers, that’s us, over 14 billion dollars in 2016, and 100s of billions by 2030.
Yes, that’s “billion” with a “B.” Wow, how’d this happen?
Before you get too carried away, this isn’t the result of a suddenly cooperative Congress in a hand-holding Kumbaya group hug moment with our President. These changes have been creeping into our kitchens since 2009 as a result of “dreaded presidential executive orders.”
Yep, as in Obama the Emperor, the Dictator, the Over-Reacher.
Why isn’t the GOP screaming about abuse of power, job killing and too much government interference when the President’s in our kitchens?
Maybe it’s because he hasn’t tried to make us go through a background check before we purchase our Amana freezers or register our deadly central A/C units and convection ovens.
Or possibly it’s because there isn’t a black market for illegal sales of stolen washers, electric carving knives and steam irons. And I’m not aware of anyone killed by a radio … except in old Alfred Hitchcock movies involving a bubble bath murder scene where the radio is tossed in the tub. ZZZZZT!
Where are the threats to “take the President to court?”
I can see Scalia giggling as he pounds his key board issuing his scathing dissent on the cultural dangers of energy efficient bagel toasters backed up by Thomas’ rant over Bosch dishwashers’ low energy utilization.
God forbid the “gub-mint” helps the little guy … the middle class … the poor person paying ever increasing utility bills. So let’s hear it for the “Chef-in-Chief of America’s Kitchens.”
Hip-hip-hooray – hip-hip … wait a minute is that the voice of dissent I hear in the kitchen wilderness of America?
Oh … the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers thinks these changes are coming too fast which could result in the industry turning out shoddy appliances?
What? Don’t they mean shoddi-er? They think we still manufacture shit here? No way!
