We are a nation of idiots and fools
That's just terrific! By banning incandescent light bulbs, our idiot government tackled a non-existent problem.....global warming. The ban is forcing consumers to buy stupid compact fluorescent and LED bulbs instead. Compact fluorescent bulbs have toxic amounts of mercury and any break presents a serious health hazard to you and your family. As if that weren't bad enough, now we find the design and manufacturing flaws result in cracks in the phosphorous coating whose job it is to protect us from the heavy doses of UV radiation we'd otherwise be exposed to. UV radiation causes skin cancer.
So in order to enrich the compact fluorescent and LED light-bulb lobby, our brilliant government endangered us with mercury poisoning and skin cancer by banning cheap incandescent bulbs because some retard of an environmentalist says the polar bears are suffering.
We have become a nation of idiots and fools who'll believe almost anything, and accept almost any government action to address it, no matter how ridiculous, as long as the delusion makes us feel good.
