The last plant that manufactures light bulbs in America will close it's doors at the end of this month putting 200 Americans out of work. Not because there is no demand for its product, but because the imperial socialist government has mandated it in order to be slavishly obedient to the environmentalist morons who actually believe in global warming, despite the fact that the Earth is cooling.
Obama preposterously lectures us about all the jobs he's saved or created, even though the unemployment rate continues to rise near 10%. An observant news consumer might ask, "Where are the green-jobs that Obama promised, building compact fluorescent bulbs to replace the incandescent ones they've outlawed"?
Like all of America's manufacturing base....in China of course. The new bulbs are dimmer, they flicker, are more expensive, contain dangerous amounts of mercury, and constitute a dangerous health hazard if broken or disposed of without a hazmat team. By 2014, the government mandates that all bulbs in use be stupid CFB's, even though nobody wants them. Is this the kind of country you want to live in? Me neither. Remember that when you go to the polls in a little less than 8 weeks from now.
