Fireproof: xrayspx: I've never understood his "it takes 7 flushes now" argument and the light bulb thing about how LEDs suck and make him look weird and now we can have incandescents again.

Like, on what planet?  I've had two new toilets installed in the last decade, one of them in 2016.  They're fine.  I also had a case where I had one incandescent and one LED recessed can light on the same switch.  The only visible difference between them was that the LED took a split second to turn on.  That was nearly imperceptible.  LED lights are pretty danged awesome now and you can choose whatever color temp suits you.

This is George HW Bush levels of out of touch.  These are Trump's "guessing at the price of bread" moments and people aren't seeing it somehow?

It's part of his whole "grasping at straws to come up with reasons to hate environmentally-friendly things because they're left-wing" shtick he does.

I'm not an expert though. Wouldn't a dishwasher have a pressure regulator? I mean, I'm no engineer, but those people seem to know how to set up a machine to do it's job across a range of possible utility setups.


Ehh, the reality is that it's never clear until years later how well these things work, because lawmakers tend to engage in wishful thinking.  That's why virtually everything in California now is labeled as containing chemicals that are known to the state of California to cause cancer.

Back in the 80's they introduced water-saving toilets that allow much less water through per flush.  But then people started flushing their toilets twice because they didn't work well... using more water... and complaining about them.

Expensive dishwashers that are designed to work on well water are going to do just fine regardless, whereas cheap ones need more water...that's probably not going to change overnight just because someone made a new rule, because most people don't want to spend $1000 on a new dishwasher when the one they have works.

FTA:


Donald Trump has suggested that his administration's actions on dishwasher pressure meant women supported him.

Without providing details on policy, the US president told supporters on Sunday that "the women come up to me, the women they say dont like me, they actually do like me a lot".

And that, said the Republican candidate, was because he "freed up" dishwashers to dispense more water.
"So, you go into a hotel or you buy a house, and they have what's called a restrictor," he told supporters in Nevada. "[The] same thing with your dishwasher, I freed that up too."

In an apparent reference to environmental standards that his administration rolled back, the president said dishwashers had a problem until his intervention.

WTH?  Is he taking drugs before his speeches?

The answer is right in front of you - it's because the other choice is so awful.

The truth is that Biden is the only Democrat who ran who was even halfway close to normal, and he made the race much closer by inviting Sanders to alter his platform and making Harris his running mate.
A bookie would take bets on him not finishing his first term, making Kamala president, and she has allied herself with every kooky idea she thought it would take to get the nomination herself.
