This isn't about government trying to take over our private lives. Maybe people just need to have their minds transformed somehow to a new way of thinking. Then everyone would think the same and no one would have to "convince" or change them because their thinking would already be in line towards a unified cause. Maybe those who didn't conform could be lessened somehow.

Oh wow. “Lessened somehow” for not conforming to your idea of a unified cause?

That’s almost as psychotic as the premise of the thread here.

I choose to use.

Saves time. That's what modern appliances are for.

My current dryer is gas. That puppy will dry clothes in no time.

This made sense. I usually will take out shirts and pants before they are done drying to eliminate wrinkles. But the smaller items don't even require that much care. I will literally have to keep setting a dryer for extended periods just to finish drying some socks. But isn't this kind of a waste of electricity? Especially if they can get dry just as fast by hanging?

What do you think? Should they be banned for home use?
Now people want to know why boomers hate millenials.

My mind transforms when it makes sense. Giving up our gas dryer that does a load of clothes in 40 minutes with no dust, bird droppings, tree droppings, or other stuff, and isn't affected by rain, heat, or cold, makes absolutely no sense at all.

The mere idea of something this idiotic is why we have the 2nd Amendment - a backstop for if the government ever does get this stupid. Thank god Californians can move away because I’d have already been rioting if those laws applied to me! Lol
