What are we coming to as a society When people can't even dry their own clothes out on the line anymore? Not too long ago people didn't even have washers and dryers like we do today. They had to do their laundry outside and hang them up to dry in the sun. 

I can remember as a child that was a weekly chore of mine and my sisters during the warm seasons here in Ohio. Mom would wash the clothes and then we would hang them on the line. It saved us much needed money on our electric bill and to me is better for the environment just like the woman said.

Still in many countries today people don't have or can't even afford clothes dryers and washers and are hanging their clothes out to dry do we see them being fined by their city/town? Have we as a society here in America gotten to the point where we think that we should outlaw the use of the sun and wind when it is free just so we can get more money out of an already struggling America and force them the use machines that cost them money that they need to feed, clothe and house their families? It certainly seems that way to me.
