EPA as Peeping Tom


Big government is creepy. On that, I would like to think all readers would agree with me (as you should most topics). However, a couple of stories have recently come to light that have taken big government creepiness and turned it up to eleven. Turns out the government is really super interested in getting in the shower with us.

First, it was the water heaters. Remember what the government did with light bulbs? Well, now they’re at it with residential hot water heaters. These new regulations, by who other than the EPA, will be two to three times the cost that they are today and significantly larger. So, have fun either remodeling your utility closet or having a water heater as an art piece in your living room.
