Dear Big Screen TV,

Watch out, 'cause California might ban you!
The California Energy Commission is considering a proposal that would ban California retailers from selling all but the most energy-efficient televisions. Critics say the news standards could take 25 percent of televisions off the market — most of them 40 inches or larger.

Well, now I regret not buying one of you while Circuit City was in its death throes.

And listen to this propaganda that the state of California is spitting out:
How much money can these proposals save?

These proposals can save you $18 to nearly $30 per year per television.
Yep,that's it, Big Screen TV. California is willing to sell you out for a savings of $30 per TV, per year.

The world already says it's inefficient to have large SUVs, big gas-guzzling trucks, and big ol' 200-watt light bulbs, the least we can have is you, Big Screen TV. I hope you're with us for a long, long time.


Do you like your big ass TV? Let the California Energy Commission Commission know how you feel because these regulations might go down sooner than you think: appliances@energy.state.ca.us
