    Nearly 14% of all of the nation's energy goes to lighting. So no, I don't think we are overstating the case.
    We could solve this by opening up the entire nation to oil drilling. We could streamline the process for starting fup new nuclear power plants. We do not need to regulate what goes into each house.

    I would not consider permission to be required for that purpose, but in any case please be my guest.

    I understand that I probably did not have to have permission, but I didn't want to post your words on another thread without your permission. I will have it posted in about 15 monutes as I have already typed my response. I will entitle the thread - Political Principles

    Whenever the question is "Why don't they?" The answer usually is "Money"

    Have you ANY idea how expensive your proposals are? Much much much cheaper to get people to use less energy
    Greenhouse gases: Any gas that, by an accident of chemistry, happens to absorb radiation of a type that the Earth, by an accident of history, would like to lose.
    The internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhoea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind- boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.

    I don't know about you but I can accept paying less for light bulbs, and having mattress inspectors as an alternative to living in Somalia. The Federal government has no laws that prevent gardens in the front yard.

    Many who make up the American public have bought into the President's lies.

    Where is the lie when Obama says we should eliminate the Bush tax cuts for the rich, and the majority of America agrees???
