Wait a minute, OVER-INFLATE!!!

So normal inflation is ok?

What about accurate logging of the power I use?

And what's this BS about increased error on energy saving and LED lights on dimmers?
This is supposed to save power (be cheaper to operate) not increase the bill exponentially!!!

I am also very concerned about the disparity between what big business pays for power and what I pay for power.
They are the ones putting the big hit on infrastructure, yet that hit ends up on my bill!

all show which side their bread is buttered on.

When the advertising content loads first and the page rebuilds/rearranges itself 6 or 8 times and finally the content you want to see becomes visible or stabilizes enough to click a link.

I think some of the pages are designed to do this on purpose.
You get a glimpse of the content you are looking for and click on a link just as the page rebuilds itself and the link has changed to an ad and the cash register rings on a click through.

Comment A 6 figure salary (Score 1) 594

Is what is needed in the bay area for a single income to support a family.
Actually 2 incomes are needed almost anywhere to support a family unless one is an upper level corporate income.
That whole single income concept is a fallacy for folks who believe the Cinderella story and play with Barbie's.

5000 people are not entitled to 6 figure salary's, nor will a union get them that salary, it will only raise the cost of building the cars and further enrich the union.
Rule one about unions, they take care of themselves first, then the workers who they are employed to represent.

That plant I'm pretty sure is located in the old Ford plant, and that location was chosen because all of the infrastructure was already in place.
If that was my plant I would shut it down if it tried to unionize, and move it to a more right minded state (not right leaning).

I have had 4 union membership experiences and all 4 screwed me, I can't imagine what it is like from the other side.
My sympathies lie with Mr Musk in this situation.
