“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

The probing hand of Obama reaches into our homes

Not satisfied with ruining America's energy economy with cap-n-trade, bank and private company bailouts, and a totally flawed census, now Obama wants to control what kind of light bulbs we use in our homes too....

The president says that 7 percent of all energy consumed in America goes to light people's homes and businesses, and that if the newer, more restrictive energy efficiency standards truly take hold, there could a savings of $4 billion a year by 2022.

That the government would dare come into our homes and dictate that we use stupid, infernally dim, compact fluorescent bulbs demonstrates that there is no part of the private lives of Americans into which he won't intrude using the heavy hand of the federal police state.

After driving home in our tiny, but fuel efficient death traps forced on us by Government Motors, we'll stumble around in the cold, sterile dimness of CFD's, looking for candles to increase the light and warmth in our homes, after which we'll sit shivering, huddled under blankets for warmth in front of our government-approved 13inch, low-wattage TV's, watching the one approved station...OBN(Obama Broadcasting Network) as we stare blankly at yet another glycerin speech by The Obamessiah telling us how wonderfully equal we all are because of him.

God help us!!!

Go out right now and stock up on incandescent bulbs for the coming ban. You're either an independent, patriotic American or a brain-dead, Obama stooge, you can't be both.

Our people are okay with the government taking over health, cars, money, our homes.. they don't care about those choices - as long as they have abortion and gay marriage they feel like they're free.

A very wise and astute observation Tracie. We're walking, no running, toward a totalitarian, socialist state, willingly handing over liberties as fast as we can, all the while beating our chests about how much we love freedom.....the rest of the world is laughing at our idiocy.
