I hope you enjoy living a lonely and unproductive life. Collaboration in relationships, workplace, and society requires being an Indian once in a while. A "Cheif" with no followers is just a misanthrope. But I understand that you have been told that for several years on this board. This will be my first and last time I will address you here.

Re: “Turn to 65 degrees.” MORE COMPLICATED

I happen to agree that it was good idea to dial down a little. VOLUNTARILY. But remember that the people on the Left want to shut down reasonably priced fuel, including gas, oil, coal, and nuclear. If they create artificial energy shortage crises this way, the demands become even more onerous.

But we are on a slippery slope with such "suggestions". How long until we are legally required to dial down? What will the penalties be? And the requests will become more demanding (Turn down to 60 degrees-OR ELSE!). And the penalities will become ever increasing. Consider the ever lower BAC that constitutes drunk driving, moving now to 0.05%. If you have a CPL, it can already be suspended if you are above 0.02%. And you are then in for the hassle of your life. Frequent stops, searches for weapons, ever increasing physical contact by the police. Waiting outside your house or fine wine restaurant waiting for you to mess up.

Our electric meters can now monitor our energy usage IN REAL TIME, and have the ability to shut your electricity down by remote control IN REAL TIME. How long before these edicts are enforced this way? This is REAL. When did this technology and hardware and software start? With Interruptible Air Conditioning, to save a little on your electric bill. Convenience. Then Communism. Not a conspiracy theory. Incrementalism-The ever increasing temperature in the lobster pot.

Ancestry DNA tests show us that people with different geographic latitudes have DNA differences. One is differences in the tolerance of hot and cold temperatures. I saw it firsthand in college dormitories, living with residents from all over the world. You cannot set a single temperature as appropriate for all. And yet if we did set differences based on this, we would be hearing the "R" word screamed all the time.


Disagreeing with Communists is NOT an impeachable offense.

Wow. Collaboration requires being a racist? They’re not “Indians”! They’re not from India!

What’s a “Cheif”? Even your autocorrect is ignorant.

Growing up near a reservation, I understand the issue. However, there's a difference between words and actions. I've been called all kinds of derogatory words by good friends as a way to express comradery. We should be more conscious of derogatory actions.

That being said, I don't think this one has much chance at comradery so he may not understand the nuances.

LL101.
Do you even know how Native Americans got the term "Indians" ?

It's not some random racist slur as you want to imply.

It goes back to Columbus.
During his voyage he was actually trying to reach India, but accidently ended up in North America.
He was very far off course obviously and he had no idea NA existed, so he assumed it to actually be India, thus giving the native people inhabiting the land the term "Indians".

"Chief" is also not a racist slur...
