Soon they will regulate how much electricity we can use. etc . It is true. Sad but these politicians really believe that we are dumb and need their help.

That is what the so-called smart meter is about, maryanne. Down the road, they will be able to determine if you are using too much, and possibly shut you off.

Never heard of the smart meter...are they going to turn themselves off or they will be exempt.

They are installing them in parts of IL. Smart Meters are an advanced utility meter that records a business or consumers energy, water or gas usage in real time and in great detail.

Why wait for the supply to dry up over time when you could just force gun owners to surrender or destroy their weapons immediately? Missouri Democrats think it’s a good idea:

Democrats in the state House have proposed a bill that would force gun owners to either surrender or destroy weapons including semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines and semi-automatic pistols with a fixed magazine that can shoot more than 10 rounds before being reloaded.

Ammunition-feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds also would be banned. Owners also could send their weapons to another...
