Congress flips the switch on the light-bulb ban
Into the spending bill to keep government functioning, republicans inserted a provision that prevents the feds from spending any money to enforce the idiotic ban on 100W incandescent light bulbs that goes into effect 31Dec. Sadly it doesn't repeal the ban, it just takes the teeth out of enforcing it.
Nothing embodies the absurdity of government heavy-handedness combined with the utter insanity of belief in the man-made global warming myth than the US ironically outlawing the sale of our most famous invention, the incandescent light bulb, to save the polar bears.
That the last incandescent light bulb factory in the US shut down this year is a sad testament to how intrusive, over bearing, and capricious our federal government has become in the lives of taxpayers. Sad and pathetic!
