“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.”

Obama forces LED bulbs on Americans.....polar bears giddy

President Obama and Stephen Chu, the Energy Secretary who detests all forms of energy produced by companies who don't donate to democrats' campaigns.

The economic future of America being as dim and lifeless as the outrageously expensive "green" bulbs the government is forcing on us, is an apt and depressing irony.

What's more depressing is that the manufacturers of compact fluorescent bulbs and $50 LED bulbs, GE and Philips(a Danish company) respectively, were and are big Obama donors and stand to profit mightily from Obama's idiotic ban of cheap and reliable incandescent bulbs. The 100W bulbs are already illegal. Next come the 75W followed by 60W and by 2013, all incandescent bulbs will be contraband, just like regular-flow toilets.

Our feckless media find nothing curious about a Danish company winning a $10million dollar prize to be allowed to sell us fifty-dollar a piece light bulbs, after donating to Obama's campaign and helping to get incandescent bulbs banned.

Main stream media...."Nothing to see here folks, move along."

As a conservative I generally agree with your comments. I don't believe the government should intervene in dictating the bulbs we buy. The L-Prize competition really wasn't a bad idea - any company was allowed to enter who could meet the criteria.

Just so you know, The incandescent ban wasn't started in the Obama administration - it started in 2007 with the Bush administration.

Philip is Dutch (The Netherlands) not Danish (Denmark). They also employ about 25,000 workers in the U.S.

Last - though the L-Prize bulb is very pricey, we've seen most other LEDs coming down in price over the past year, including products from Philips.

Good catch on the country of residence of Philips, my bad.

I knew that moron Bush signed the 100W incandescent ban. This ban and the TARP I bailouts were the main two reason I washed my hands of him.

Regarding the price of LED's: if somebody can manufacture LED bulbs at a competitive price such that people want to buy them, great for the free market. But should the government ban one product just to force people to purchase the product of a campaign contributor?

Clearly the answer is NO!
