We finally have most people aware that the true definition of Liberal includes "Progressive/Liberal" and headlines in the local paper yesterday gave evidence that the monopoly aka Consumers Power, but which lost a little of their complete control due to letting a few people choose to purchase power from another source is now admittedly progressive in philosophy.
They were not even trying to camouflage their intent. Remember last year, can't pinpoint the exact date, but this blog demonstrated that Consumers was adding a surcharge for some green projects including giving people $25 to cart away old, outdated refrigerators, etc.
The headline yesterday indicated that they had run out of their allowance this early in the year due to so many businesses taking advantage of one of their programs being financed with the "surcharge" being paid by all Consumers' customers.
So instead of Robin Hood robbing the rich to give to the poor, Consumers has been robbing ALL their customers to give to businesses. As I recall this was a five year plan. Don't you feel good about being taxed by Consumers?
Progressives: redistribute the wealth--they know what's good for the rest of us. We aren't smart enough to know how to spend our own money. And don't forget, they are using other tax money collected by the government to put electric chargers in the city garage.
God bless us all because we certainly aren't getting any good vibes from the other entities which control our lives...
