    Obama signs government spending bill into law

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama has signed into law a spending bill that Congress approved to keep the government running, the White House said on Saturday.

    Earlier on Saturday, the Senate had passed the $915 billion bill to fund most federal activities through next September and avert a government shutdown. It had cleared the House of Representatives on Friday.
    This has been kind of under the radar, but now the government, which was scheduled for another shutdown, is funded through next September. This is what happens when Democrats and Republicans work together to........ Get the hell out of town for the holidays. LOL.

    Is this the same spending bill that has the lightbulb ban repeal in it?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Why? Are you upset that you can't waste electricity and throw away your money? Or do you just lke the extra mercury in the air from coal burning generators? More mercury is released in generating the extra power a conventional bulb wastes than is contained in a CFL bulb which can be recycled.

    Slight Overreaction I'd say.

    You'd be shocked at just how much of our electrical use is from lighting, largely due to the fact that we're still using the same type of technology we used a century ago.

    I reckon that's why the average life expectancy has risen.
