    Not one that worked well and it would have been expensive also.

    I don't think it was a busybody bureaucrat that did it, they are not smart enough. Engineers, like me, are the source. We present the numbers for things like processing sewage and purifying water and the how to make the implementation effective.

    Not now.

    Like the Tea Party couple I met. They'll never be out of debt because of the choice they made. You nad I are supporting them now.

    Not a democrat, an engineer. I've voted Libertarian, Republican and Democrat.
    What is a professional military? When I was in most of the lifers were not professional in any place I worked. You may have to draft to get an military that does its job or have an economy that is so poor that you have higher level people enlisting.
    Sorry, I didn't check my spelling. Did I clarify anything.

    Well you know how weather and the jet stream carries things from West to East? I'm just making sure this one ends up over Newfoundland and goes out to sea.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If you had kept up with the thread, or the news, you would have learned that incandescent light bulbs are available cheaply for sale that meet the standards created during the Bush Administration.

    Bush is irrelevant, choice is the only relevant thing. You're the one who needs to keep up, as usual.

    Just the facts Ma'am:

    "Beginning in 2012, common light bulbs sold in the U.S. will typically use about 25% to 80% less energy. Many bulbs meet these new standards, including incandescents, CFLs, and LEDs, and are already available for purchase today."
