    Some of us prefer to take common sense measures and gather intelligence to prevent our deaths. Others of us have no such sense and die in vain. You go right ahead and die in vain.

    Maybe that was your intention, but so far you have failed at pointing out any hypocrisy, as no one is requiring the use of CFL's, and as Deuce pointed out, more mercury is released in using the old incandescent bulbs than the optional CFL's!

    It is good to have the choice without the government telling me which choices I am allowed. For some the inexpensive bulbs are the right solution. For others the more expensive bulbs. For a few of us a mix is just about right.

    The government, filled with highly paid busybodies, making up rules all day long to harry, to harass, to bully me, is just un-American. It is time to tell the bullies that their party is over.

    The New Independence day might be just such a day.

    The halogen incandescent light bulbs are very cheap. Did you miss the link I provided for their price at Lowes above? Yes, I am aware some people feel they should have the "freedom" to pollute no matter how it affects others, or our economy. Fortunately, we have a representative government!

    So you are opposed to educating kids about energy efficiency as they prepare for a world in an energy crisis? Very sad. Education is a terrible thing to waste.

    Government schools are bad enough. Now we have the ministry of environmental truth to teach the little kids how to be green. Can turning in your parents be too far around the corner?

    No thanks. Defund the Left. Return to individual freedom. Embrace liberty.

    2mg of mercury in your home does not pose a grave danger to the inhabitants.

    Kilotons of mercury released into the atmosphere, getting into water tables and soil, on the other hand, can cause problems. You know how they tell pregnant women not to eat so many fish?

    Sorry, it's a measure you are going to lose.
