"Eight armed narcs raided the Dagy home on March 19 and found absolutely nothing. No evidence of pot anywhere, not even stashed in the children's toys. Seems that the coppers mistook the family's constant use of the dishwasher, washer/dryer, three computers, four ceiling fans, and other electronic devices as evidence of a felony drug operation. Oops. The Dagys--Mom's a homemaker and Dad's a general manager of 21 Shell stations--would like an apology from the Carlsbad Police Department. Sadly, we'd recommend that the Dagys not hold their collective breath."
I hate drug cops and homeland security. They keep performing these heinous searches and "eating out the substance" of our citizens
Add up those few bucks a month for a year. Also maybe take into account the benefit to society (and thus to you) from improved grid efficiency and fewer blackouts
Now take the value of stuff you'd lose in a robbery. Multiply that by the probability that someone will steal your electricity usage data and use it to rob your house in the same year.
I'd be pretty surprised if the expected cost of this extremely unlikely hypothetical robbery makes smart meters not worthwhile.
Great for developers of programs, but from what I can tell, useless if I want to install something that someone wrote, which usually use the autotools.

Check your history for context. The term "militia" roughly equates to the the modern National Guard; i.e. a paramilitary organization of volunteers, under unified control. Notice I said "roughly" -- the National Guard is not the militia of the constitution, it just roughly describes the shape and flavour of such a militia.
Basically, we don't have one, and it's very unlikely we will. Therefore, the second amendment does not apply. If you don't like it, then table a new amendment that provides for a militia so that the second amendment becomes valid again!
The second amendment has absolutely nothing to do with the rights of individuals to bear arms.
You have higher cognitive ability, you realize how the world runs, you get depressed. Not the other way 'round.

Open source RTS engine which formed around the idea of being a '3d TA' . There's a bunch of variations of TA for it and some nice other games.
A lot of old TA and SupCom players come to spring.
