At the end of last year, I wrote about a federal law that outlaws the sale of 100-watt incandescent light bulbs after 2012 and 40-watt incandescent bulbs after 2014. In another post, I speculated (only half jokingly) about where such stupid nanny-state legislation might lead.
Texas Congressman Ted Poe (see above) recently made a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives highlighting the lunacy of the use of those stupid squiggly “energy saving” bulbs. It’s a good speech, even though it appears that he spoke to a largely empty chamber, which doesn’t surprise me. Politicians care about two things and only two things — getting elected and, once elected, staying in office.
As I’ve said before, this crap is just the beginning, and you can damned well laminate that for your wallet.
