Well...they can't be accused of being stupid can they, outright blatent and patently obvious sharks yes, stupid, no.
Especially if they actually do exclude (at least initially) the Police, the Military, the Legal profession...and just about anyone else who had at least a small chance of spotting and challenging this move.
How does the saying go?
They persecuted the guy down the street and i did nothing, because i live in a better street.
They came for the guy who was a different religion and i did nothing, because i have a better religion.
They came for my neighbour who was talking about the guys who were taken from down the street, but i did nothing because they let me alone.
Then...then they came for me, and there was no one to stop them.

We are in Ca. we already pay more for peak time useage and weekends and holidays. we pay more when we use more than the set base amount of power per kwh. The rates keep going up and up. We now pay without consent for Low Income Assistance, Dam Removal plus many taxes and charges. When the dam removals are paid for the charge will remain I am sure, that is how things work. We used to have an option to pay into the low income fund now they just nab it even though we can barely pay our own.

Sorry to hear that mate, it appears that they want more and more without having to produce more using things like global warming, their profits just rise and rise.
Can you tell me how much you are paying to last year, and is it more expensive to run appliances between 4 and 7
