    With everything going on in the world the big line in the sand the GOP wants to draw is the "right" to use crappy, overpriced, lightbulbs that wear out faster? Seriously guys?

    Speaking of troglodytes, have you sold your automobile and begun riding a bicycle? *snicker*

    I see Perry announced great news about stopping tyranny. Great news!

    The true argument here is not really about light bulbs.

    Well, IMO you guys should spend more time focusing on stuff that actually matters and less time on trying to make points about your beliefs.

    I'll be happy to compare my carbon footprint with anyone. How can you have freedom with a ****ed up environment and high prices caused by an energy crisis?

    Freedom should never be a trivial matter.

    You can compare your footprint with a person who actually rides a bike and lives in a tent? Truth is you waste energy. Stop it!!

    As for an energy crisis, we don't have one. What we have is a bunch of people manufacturing a crisis. Stop it!!

    What could possibly trivialize freedom more than equating it to wanting to use out of date lightbulbs?

    Freedom is apparently not easily understood by all. Even small steps of eroding freedom should not go unchallenged.

    First they came for the cheap, Chinese-made, energy wasting 100 watt light bulbs;
    And I didn't speak out, because I love crappy Chicom **** and wasting energy;

    Then they came for me....
