EPA to Monitor Colorado Residents’ Water Usage

Recently, we reported about how the EPA wanted to monitor hotel guests’ shower habits in an attempt to “modify” people’s behavior. Leave it to them to decide how long is “too long” for a person to take a shower. Unless you’re one of those people who takes a shower once a month whether you need to or not, the EPA thinks you should cut down your shower time by at least a minute. Apparently, this is such a big deal that they’ve done studies to find out how long the average shower is. Read more […]

EPA Wants to Ban Showers Over 7 Minutes

Leave it to the EPA to decide how long is “too long” for a person to take a shower. Unless you’re one of those people who takes a shower once a month whether you need to or not, the EPA thinks you should cut down your shower time by at least a minute. Apparently, this is such a big deal that they’ve done studies to find out how long the average shower is. It’s 8.2 minutes. So, they don’t want anyone taking any showers longer than 7 minutes. Any longer, and you’d be wasting water. The Read more […]

California Couple Faces $500 Fine for Having Brown Lawn; Faces Fine if They Water It

California’s drought has lead to water restrictions being imposed on residents. You’d think that if you’re in the middle of a drought, and people are trying to conserve water, things like an aesthetically pleasing lawn would be last on the list of things to worry about. You’d be most concerned with having water to drink. And you’d do bigger loads of laundry and take shorter, perhaps less frequent showers. That’s exactly what one California couple was doing in trying to conserve water. Read more […]

Virginia County Bans Carwashes on School Property

Doing car washes is an easy way to raise a little money. Pick a Saturday, get a group of volunteers together, and set up in a parking lot right outside some food establishment (as long as the owner’s OK with it). Wash people’s cars at no charge (with the drivers’ consent) and most of the time, people will throw in a couple dollars in tips. By the end of the day, you might end up with a few hundred dollars. And then you use the money toward whatever project you were saving up for. Several Read more […]

Why Is Portland The Only City To Resist Forced Undosed Medication?

Portland just voted again to not fluoridate its public drinking water. This is treated as something of a joke in the eyes of the establishment. In the media, viewing water fluoridation as “a communist plot” is the time-honored smear against conservatives to show how insane and paranoid they are. (Another one was a refusal to trust banks, but that doesn’t sell as well since 2008.) Portland had to fight off a city newspaper, The Oregonian, that openly campaigned for fluoridation. This followed Read more […]
