Congressional negotiators struck a deal Thursday that overturns the new rules that were to have banned sales of traditional incandescent light bulbs beginning next year.

That agreement is tucked inside the massive 1,200-page spending bill that funds the government through the rest of this fiscal year, and which both houses of Congress will vote on Friday. Mr. Obama is expected to sign the bill, which heads off a looming government shutdown.

Congressional Republicans dropped almost all of the policy restrictions they tried to attach to the bill, but won inclusion of the light bulb provision, which prevents the Obama administration from carrying through a 2007 law that would have set energy efficiency standards that effectively made the traditional light bulb obsolete.

...



Good. Congress has no right to tell us which light bulb we can or cannot buy.

Always. I'll continue having a full amount of light immediately after turning it on.

Also, it's good that Congress is respecting your freedom regarding light bulbs. Maybe next they can work on that whole "indefinite detention of American citizens" thing.

Yeah, cus the freedom of lightbulb choice is so damn important. Reminds me of George Carlin saying about this, 'in the big issues you have no choice but you have 50 different air fresheners and 20 kinds of donuts but in politics, 2 choices.' or words to that effect.

Yeah, things like that bug me. Freedom to do this, freedom to do that, freedom for these and those and here and there; there are more important things in the world. There's a legitimate reason to not use incandescent bulbs just as there is a legitimate reason not to use DDT.

Dear Congress,

can you do this with every medicine possible now?

Probably not, you paid out fascists.

Thanks for the freedom to use and distribute light bulbs without any risk of life sentences, though.

I was glad to hear this. The fluorescent bulbs make me depressed for some reason, the light they give off is too "industrial" looking if that makes any sense. And they cost more.
#37
If the biggest concern in your life with the current state of the world and the US economy and governmental function is "When is the government going to stop telling me what light bulbs I can buy?!", then you should just be silent and thankful for everything you've got.
