    Re: Incandecent Bulbs Made Illegal

    I wonder if would be illegal for me to send incandecent bulbs from Mexico to the US.

    I hate flourescent bulbs. They make me feel like I am back in school, and it frains all the life out of you.

    Maybe a new business.

    Reminder: you can still buy incandescent bulbs, and the new incandescent bulbs that put out the same light at a lower wattage are available at Home Depot.

    Hey, my house is already 100% compact fluorescent so I wouldn't care.

    Actually, they make compact fluorescent bulbs now that have a warmer color of light that looks more like an incandescent bulb instead of the cooler bluish light that you expect from a fluorescent.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    What should be made illegal is not telling the truth, and what is worse is "spinning" the truth. There is far too much of this in our nation....IMO, the softer but fuller illuminate qualities from LEDs are much better, the high cost is not "much better".
    Here, the educated wealthy have quite an advantage.

    Maybe it would be better if the newer technology was allowed to sell the technology to the people rather than to coerce people into using it. The free market would decide which bulb was the preferred bulb. Isn't that a better way to determine the best bulb rather than dictate the policy?
