Energy Department proposes efficiency rules
for cooking devices after gas stove furor

Original Article

The Department of Energy is proposing new energy conservation standards for new household gas and electric cooking devices, some of which have never been subject to federal efficiency standards. DOE's proposed rule-making, published Wednesday, follows the recent political frenzy over the fate of gas stoves that was ignited after a federal regulator at the Consumer Product Safety Commission said his agency could ban them to reduce indoor air pollution.


Democrats believe you are a slave to them and you must obey. Unless made to do so at the point of a Gun, they will never leave us alone to live our lives!!!

What a surprise. Your gas stove just failed the efficiency test. Must convert over to clean natural cattle dung.

We the people need to establish efficiency rules for Congress. Follow the will of the people or the entire Congress should be able to be dissolved at any time and a special election held in every state and territory.

Government bureaucrats MUST have something to do, some power to exercise in order to make their lives seem to have meaning. If we the people don't need them to tell us what to do, then what purpose do they have?

Natural gas range tops are essentially 100% efficient. Any electrical heating device is no more efficient than the prime energy source that created the electricity. So, a "perfectly efficient" electric heating device is actually between 30% efficient and MAYBE an upper limit of 40% from some of the most modern gas turbine topping units. BUT, you can be certain that the rotten pukes at DoE will NOT go back to the primary energy source, coal or natural gas and calculate efficiency from that, as a sane and fair person would. They'll do some crooked "math" and come up with some BS ways, no doubt.

I don't know how my propane cook-stove can be any more efficient. It used less than 75 gal of propane a year and that included canning my own food over several days of running it non-stop. I would assume that a natural gas stove would be about the same.

What are they going to do? Limit the flame level on gas stoves to low so that it takes 3 hours to boil a pot of water? Only small burners on electric stoves that heat up to Medium? An your new Oven? Well, that will have to be limited to only so many cubic feet so that it will be too small to cook your Thanksgiving Turkey. These new appliances will be just a efficient and effective as the new low water use flush toilets that are mandatory in many homes.

You will own nothing and be happy. Get your appliances from the Government Store and be happy. Get your food from the Government store and be happy. Watch your programs from the Government Broadcasting Network and be happy. The Government owns you from pre-birth and if you're fortunate to survive birth, to post grave. You are the subjects of the Government and have no rights other than what the Government gives you. The aforementioned is what the current UniParty believes.

This and other things like it should be the rallying cry for the 2024 election cycle from the GOP. Every agency has to answer to the Congress, which means they need Congress to authorize their budgets (except when on these never-ending continuing resolutions, CR, or Omnibus bills). The climate goals from the Paris Accord have a target date of 2100, or 77 years from now, which means we have plenty of time to improve on things by then, but don't have to follow the Democrat plan of penalizing people. If they had the science on their side they wouldn't have to use forceful tactics like extreme regulations. The U.S. has more Natural gas available, which is clean burning, which means we should NOT have a shortage. Same with oil, which California mostly imports from foreign countries, even though we have abundant supplies in North America. What they really are trying to do is reduce the pollution levels, and using these tactics.

If gas stoves have to go then so do hot water heaters. Get ready for permanent cold showers, no cars, no air conditioning, eating bugs and an IRS Agent at every door.

Joe Biden announced on the campaign trail a couple of years ago that he intended to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court. The White House re-affirmed that intention yesterday in the wake of confirmed rumors of Justice Stephen Breyer’s imminent retirement. It’s not that Biden has a particular nominee in mind who just happens to be a black woman. No, it’s that being a black woman is the main criteria. This is not unprecedented for Biden.

WASHINGTON — Pete Buttigieg, the transportation secretary who holds the purse strings to much of President Joe Biden’s $1 trillion infrastructure package, was holding forth with reporters on its impact — the promise of more electric cars, intercity train routes, bigger airports — when a pointed question came. How would he go about building racial equity into infrastructure? The 39-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate laid out his argument that highway design can reflect racism, noting that at least $1 billion in the bill will help reconnect cities and neighborhoods that had been racially segregated or divided by road projects. CORRECTIONS*

Donald Trump is not stupid. His opponents have always underestimated him because of the colloquial way he talks–sounding vastly different than most people in the highly educated class. Not sounding educated, they assume he isn’t and by extension isn’t smart. But in recent weeks Trump has been acting as if he is stupid, and I have to say I am surprised. Trump has been attacking Ron DeSantis on the COVID lockdown issue, arguing that the governor’s reputation as a freedom fighter is unearned. Trump even implies that DeSantis was something of a COVID fascist, while Trump himself was fighting to reopen the American economy. That is a profoundly stupid line of attack.
