Fucking LIPA (Long Island Power Authority) bastards. We have had two fucking two second outages today, and one power sag that freaked out my UPS so much that it quit out and turned off all power to every device hooked up to it.

Fuck these big power companies. How fucking hard is it to give reliable power to your customers?! What everyone needs in this country is a private fuel cell generator for your house and no more fucking power lines. Of course, since the government is always afraid of change in America (Just look at the Automobile and Vonage VoIP telephones), that will most likely never happen, and they will stick by these corporate fat cats who keep destroying our electronics.

Pieces of shit. BURN, YOU GREEDY ASSHOLES!

Yeah...Power companies really seem to like fucking with their customers...

In thirty years, we will all be using fuel cell generators anyway. At least we know that these evil bastard companies' reigns will end soon enough.

yeah its called capitalism...which means...an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods and by prices, production, and distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market

in other words the government isn't in control of business, the only way the government can become involved is if a big business is monopolizing the indusrty that it is associated with. If the government was in control of everything it would be comunisim which is bad so stop your bitching and get over it.

ok let me sum it up...businesses control price and ajust prices due to competition, government dosn't have any say in that until one business becomes all powerful and starts buying the smaller less powerful ones and then can raise the price to whatever they want because they have monopolized the industry.

I live in such a rural area that it used to be if the power went out it was out for a week or two. Fuck the electric company. At least now we usually have power again by the end of the day. Although, not always.
