dirty dishes

Well, now that King Obama has brought peace and harmony to the world, looks like it’s time to go after dishwashers.

Via The Hill:

Companies that make dishwashers are warning that the Obama administration’s latest efficiency standards for their industry would backfire.

The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers is accusing the Department of Energy (DOE) of a politically motivated drive to increase dishwasher efficiency, which are so bad that they would cause consumers to re-wash dishes, erasing any efficiency gains….

Some of the group’s members, which include companies like GE Appliances & Lighting and Whirlpool Corp., tweaked their models to comply with the DOE’s December proposal to ratchet up standards.

They then ran standard tests with food stuck to dishes.

“They found some stuff that was pretty disgusting,” McAver said.

McAver brought DOE officials to his office recently to show them the results, and released photos of it publicly this week….

    Well look on the bright side. If the new model dishwashers become more expensive and less efficient, it will bring more families together and bring back…’You wash, I’ll dry” coin flips the kids will have after being told by mom or dad, ‘I cooked dinner’…

    Ban transfats, sugar, salt, caffeine, almost everything, make what’s left inedible (Mooch diet) and no need for the peasants to have a dishwasher.

    Mooch as Madge Antoinette; Let them soak their hands in Palmolive.

    First it was toilets, then light bulbs, now it’s dishwashers. Don’t forget all the foods that were bad for you. Try finding any foods that aren’t fat free, low calorie or light. Slowly but surely we are being placed in a smaller and smaller box, or in a huge vat of water and slowly boiled to death. But that’s what the puppet masters want, less people to control. I fear that we will never tell them to go effff off and get out of our lives.
