I'm sure this has already come up in this thread, but I'm curious how many of the cons complaining about the tyrannical light bulb energy standards know that this is a Bush policy, and that energy standards have been in place since Reagan, I believe.
I know true conservatives want to have that choice for them selves, guess that's why I am a middle to the left, accept a bit of force feeding if needed if for the larger good I guess.
Learned to lock up the seat belt, go through the scanners at the air port, recycle my papers, glass and plastic, don't burn the leaves in the fall, bag em , and so many other things that are now second nature to me and I just accept..all by being forced fed, and I have learned to cope, so guess this one will also be one that goes down easy.
Wrong, I said I like efficiency and conservation, which you see as tyranny.
Your post seems it was written by an idiot.2. You sound a lot like Chicken Little.
Millions of people have suffered and some have died from our air pollution.3. We have used the "evil" lightbulbs for a century and not one person has died using them.
It most certainly was as was spelled out by the president's task force before we invaded them. It sure wasn't because they were a threat to us now was it?4. The war in Iraq was not over oil. That is a falsehood.
We passed peak oil in the US in 1971. We have never produced as much oil as in that year, no matter what party was in control of the government.5. If you even wanted oil, we could get it right here in the United States, but tyrants don't want us to drill and refine for oil or gas.
I support battery powered cars charged with solar panels and wind mills.6. I'm guessing that you support battery powered cars as opposed to using gasoline. Well, which uses more energy from the power plants, my "evil" lightbulbs or the battery powered cars? Don't you see the dichotomy of the left's position?
The hell it isn't!7. This is not about energy and health.
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
