remember what oblamo said the other night, We will set up free trade with europe, and everything will be just “fine” What jobs are left in the USA then they will be sent to europe and that will certainly fix all of their problems.

You already have your “reasonable gun control measures in Mexifornia. What is your next excuse going to be?

If they already lost two officers this year because those weapons are for for ofensive purposes, then I suggest they send their police to the quick draw McGraw school of shoot first and not shoot second.Remember second is always the first loser.

For the people saying the powert co. owns the equipment on the side of your house you are WRONG. When you build a new house, you apply to the power co. for service. They in turn come out and place a sticker on the side of your home as to where you or your electrical contractor will mount the meter base that either you or your electrictal contractor purchase from an electrical supply house or store. The only ownership the power co. has is where their wires are connected to your wires at the weatherhead. All local building code nationwide restrict how much wire can be installed between the meter base and your main circuit panel that will run inside of the structure. That is the limit to their ownership of those wires and meter base. If you think I am wrong, then just call the power co. and ask them to upgrade you old 100 amp service to a new 200 amp service, they will most certainly tell you the procedures to finding the electrical contractor who can purchase for you the new base and all other needed parts necessary. The power co. has a right of way to sccess the meter and only the meter and nothing else.
Correct, The power company was replacing THEIR meter at this woman's home, not her meter base. It's a meter...so the power company can meter how much power you use so they know how much to bill you. Just like the water company meters the water you use so as to know how much to charge you for that. Or the gas company, or the gas pump at the gas station......
These smart water meters are an issue in themselves. They monitor how much water you use, when anyone is home, read the RFID tags on the products you buy and can listen to your conversations via the water pipes. There is a reason they want them close to your house.Check out "smart water meters."

Right up until today, having a virtual show was the best idea going for the vendors boycotting. The show is a very large show and there could not possibly be a venue large enough to house all the vendors that boycotted. The current building complex is booked at least until June of this year so the virtual show was a very good idea. Many of the local vendors that boycotted are offering discounts to people who shop at their stores if they have a receipt tickets purchased. I would urge everyone around the country to find the list of vendors that boycotted and let them know you stand with them. Many of the vendors are nationwide companies, and many of them also sell online. We know we must all stand together or we will surely all hang seperatly.

If you were to build a new office building right now and replace all of the pvc piping with copper and cast iron piping, the costs would skyrocket beyond belief. The cost of copper pipe alone would make it very cost prohibitive to build. The repair costs down the road would also skyrocket due to corrosion and wear etc., the modern plastic pipe has a much longer life than any copper pipe. In new construction there is literally miles of pipe that is enclosed in walls, floors, etc. that would need to be reopened at some point to repair adding significant costs to repairs.Having worked with plumbing pipes of all materials foe over twentry years, I find your comments to come from a very uninformed person. they need to get out of this crap and let the industry and market determine what’s the best and most cost effective material to use in a given installation.
