That was great. Love this guy.

He sums up the leftist ideology in a nutshell.

Not only that but the white light they emit gives you a headache. It is AWFUL. These lights are probably designed to not only emit Mercury which might be the least of the dangers....but what about the FLICKER rate and effect that has on your nervous system??? They are probably engineered to be programmed to create whatever negative nervous system programming the utility companies feel like sending through to households to turn us into mindless zombie slaves. Below is just one link that discusses the nature of flicker rates.

Well you know Ron Paul would say this or something similar and probably has said it 100 times. Rand probably got the idea from his dad.

And why do I have to put my lights on when driving at night?

And why do I have to have a toilet at all? Why can't I just go to the bathroom in the river behind my house?
I haven't been around these boards long, but this is by far the dumbest post I've seen.

Actually .. the truth is ... Polio was a very mild disease, with the vast majority who became infected completely unaware and symptom free.

And, Polio had already declined by 70% prior to the invention of the vaccine, but the vaccine did transmit cancer viruses to several hundred million people before the contamination was discovered by Maurice Hilleman at Merck .. (SV40)

And I'm not being sarcastic ... but these sick SOBs think it's real funny.

Yes but they are cheaper long term because you use less electricity and they last much longer.

I use them almost exclusively indoors, having said that I'm against the mandate. In my case they simply don't work for outdoor lighting especially in the winter.

All the supposed benefits you site see, to be based on propaganda and not recent findings such as the fact that they know now that will the bulb is one they emit Mercury gas and advise making sure your head is several feet away from the light.

As to them being cheaper in the long run, I've had some stop working after a few weeks that I paid a small fortune for (before I found out about the mercury).

Don't forget that there is still the flicker rate to be concerned about and these dumb overpriced light bulbs could exacerbate the dangers of the flicker rates.....

Sure and your mother kept you from harm by locking you in your room, complete with baby montor, co detector and fire alarm until you were 18.

Was there a better way to protect you, sure, but you didin't have the option and your mom didn't consider a more resonable approach.

The fed regualtors may have 'good intentions' but they are 'paving the road to hell' with them.

John List had good intentions. He killed his family to save their souls from sin. Do you suppose the current administration is taking a page from John List's story?
Excellent analogy! This is precicely what they are doing "locking us in our rooms" ( and making us pay for it while they prosper). How dumb can we be to let them get away with it????

Hopefully we still have a little smarts left and AT LEAST won't let the Media dictate our choices for political candidates in the future. If we do, all we can expect is more of the same....higher cost of living, fewer liberties, worse quality of life, more abuse from an out of control bloated government.
