The light bulb is the traditional symbol of human ingenuity. Nothing could be more emblematic of our corrupt and ideologically deranged ruling class than banning it:
Light bulb manufacturers will cease making traditional 40 and 60-watt light bulbs — the most popular in the country — at the start of 2014.
This comes after the controversial phasing out of incandescent 75 and 100-watt light bulbs at the beginning of 2013.
In their place, our rulers will permit us to use halogen bulbs, compact fluorescent bulbs, LED bulbs, and high-efficiency incandescents — all of which are substantially more expensive. Presumably that means higher profits. They are also more difficult to manufacture. That means less competition from small companies for crony capitalists like GE and Philips who, thanks to generous lobbying (i.e., bribery), have a seat at the table in Washington.
We have been told that using normal, affordable light bulbs makes it be too hot outside, discomforting the sacred polar bears. Anyone who believes this will be in the dark regardless of which products Washington allows us to use.
The rules were signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2007.
As the Big Government noose tightens around our throats, squeezing off the last remnants of free choice, it becomes ever more obvious that it is not enough to elect Republicans — we need to elect conservatives.
