Dishwashers next appliance on the chopping block

How did the government get the power to regulate all this stuff? Dishwashers are already barely getting the job done. All this is going to do is force people to pre-wash their dishes - eliminating all those supposed efficiency gains.

Another freaking power grab by progressive leftists bent on destroying America...

    đź‘Ť Obviously, the "crackdown" must be on the federal government and its powers.

      Something has to give - either the People's Rights or the Government's power. It's all coming to a head...

        It's past time to act. I hope it comes in my lifetime.

        Should be individual rights versus the mob. No such thing as People's Rights people is plural and thus a group of individuals which group acts with permission of the members and has no inherent rights, only permissions as does the governing body.

          People refers to the group of Citizens collectively but is correct. Note the text of the Ninth and Tenth Amendments:

          Ninth: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

          Tenth: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

          Rights were always understood by the Founders as being individual in nature but exercised with the collective society of The People.

    When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.

    In me dino's "Dictionary Of Dire Doofus Democrats," that photo of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm is placed beside the word, :"Airhead."
    That lawyer turned politician is as qualified to be a Secretary of Energy as a dunderhead for a South Bend mayor is to be our Secretary of Transportation.

      These are ideologues who don't understand that there is a minimum point at which things stop functioning entirely. If there is one word which is completely foreign to the leftist it is efficiency.

        Oh they understand completely. Their sole goal is to cull the herd, enslave the remaining as a peon class, while they dine nightly on pheasant.
        It's either them or us. The two can not exist similtaneously.

          I agree, but let me clarify. When I say they don't understand it, it is because they openly eschew it. They want a system which is inefficient because it is a system they delude themselves into thinking they can control. Markets are the most efficient way to distribute scarce resources, but these elitists don't want to have to go through the markets to get the resources. They want to invoke monopoly controls even when they are not the supplier of the goods/services. Instead of working as part of the system (efficient) they want to leech off the system, independent of the natural feedback and reciprocal restraints the market dictates. They want control even though they are unwilling to exert control over themselves.

    Granholm has zero background in energy. She was our former Governor in Michigan who messed things up big time. When ever the government says it is going to save you money it is always the opposite. It will be an additional expense - not savings.

    Next, they'll go after our pets.

    Behind our backs they went after the kids, starting about 30 years ago...and they pulled if off.

    Haha...

      I hate to say it, but they will be going after the pets in a round about way. When they drive the human population into starvation, pets will become a food source. The Chinese and others know all about this.

    Oh Golly, wondering how long before they come for all those hair blowers and vibrators. That aught to catch the attention of the urban soccer moms.

    The government does not have the power, unless we succumb to what they say. Same with washing machines: It controls how much water used, the temperature of the water (especially for rinsing - always cold), how long it run. It is awful. Put, government's job is to destroy America. Ours is to keep it a free Republic.

    I'd like to see us go back to a strict constitutional system. Nothing becomes federal law unless specifically passed by both houses of congress and signed by the president. NO "agency regulations". NO "executive orders". There is a long painful process for a reason - to limit government. Ignoring that process is the reason for much (if not all) of the government overreach that pervades our lives.

      Agreed. Any agency regulations they want to write have to go up through committee and be passed as law just like any other piece of legislation. You can bet that would scuttle a lot of this nonsense.

    She was my former Governor a few years back. And a complete evil piece of shit. She literally said she didn’t care what the more rural parts of the state had to say about anything because Metro Detroit could outvote all of us. Said it out loud. At least she was honest.
