    Apparently one of Chu's lightbulbs got stuck in your ear causing you to lose sight of the topic.

    I was responding to a question, which is more than I can say for your off topic comment. So, I'll give you the opportunity to say something pertinent, why is it you want to spend more money for less light?

    No you were not responding to a question. You responded to a statement with a question that was completely irrelevant and off topic.

    We can easily see what was said and how you responded so lying about the facts, which are visible to everyone, will do you no good whatsoever.

    Some people live in fear and have a greater belief in scarcity. I have the money. I am not afraid of having plenty.

    The reason things are expensive is government intervention. The one term Marxist president Barack Hussein Obama is illegally preventing oil drilling by the US. Is that good for the nation? Is it good for you? Hiss policies are intentionally driving the price of energy higher, almost doubling the price of gasoline during his regime's three years. Is that good for the nation? Is it good for you? His regime has prevented drilling in Alaska, keeping much needed oil in the ground. Is that good for the nation? Is it good for you? His regime is preventing the Canadian pipeline from being built. Is this good for the nation? Is it good for you?

    Eliminate the vastly expensive rules and regulations for licensing a nuclear power plant and the cost would drop to a fraction of what it costs today. Would doubling or tripling our electrical energy resources at lower costs be good for the nation? Would it be good for you?

    I cannot speak to why a majority do. Given that about half of the nation has its hands out looking for government to fill them it is no real surprise that a government promising to take more of one person's property to give to others has traction with the takers. If the percentage is 47% we can still turn this around. If it is 51% which has been reported recently on a local radio station, then we are doomed.

    Buy arms and ammunition.

    So I ask again ask which Republicans are proposing huge tax hikes on half of the country? It's all Democrats' fault right? So obviously, the Republicans must have a program that will raise everybody's taxes and are keeping it a big secret.

    The problem is the viewpoint that people won't do this themselves if the arguement and benefit is made. There are people that will not see the benefit in a bulb that costs 5 times as much and puts out less light.

    It shouldn't take all that long for bulb manufacturers to bring down the price and improve the light output. If you ban any competition you remove much of the reason for them to do this.

    My wife bought led lights for the Christmas tree. They work just fine for that. When I'm working on something the old bulbs are far superior. Nobody is going to die because I still use them until an acceptable replacement is developed.

    In other words if you don't do what we want you to we will create a powerful government bureaucracy that will slowly eat up your wealth and destroy you, the nation and (oops) us.

    We've been over the pipeline. The Governor of Nebraska wants it rerouted. States rights and all. You know, one of those things Conservatives are supposed to be all about? The Governor of Nebraska, I might add, is a Republican.
