Is there nothing in your home that Obama doesn’t think he can regulate? Yesterday, it was your lamps and lightbulbs.

The cap and trade bill subsidizes “water efficient” products like the “Shower Manager.” From the Green Hell Blog:
A “Shower Nazi” may be coming your way courtesy of Waxman-Markey.
Section 217 of the bill provides for a “water efficient product incentive program” that would provide rebates, vouchers, direct installs and other forms of financial assistance for the installation of water-saving products.
During my radio interview last Friday with Bob Jamison (Kern Valley News, KNCQ 102.5 FM / Bakersfield, CA), Jamison, a motel owner, told me that he had been solicited by the seller of the “Shower Manager,” a water-saving device. Curious, I went to the Shower manager web site.
Here’s how the Shower Manager works:
The Shower Manager not only puts time limits on the shower, it also cuts the water flow when the time has expired. Our unique shower timer is a patented two-phase flow controller that permits a full-flow of water for a time period you select, (5, 8 or 11 minutes) and then restricts the water flow by two-thirds when that time limit expires. You set the full-flow Interval that best fits your lifestyle and lock it in using a special magnetic sensor.
