#1 during winter Bulbs produce heat AND power, and therefore 100% efficient.

#2 The green "religionists" are going to prevent me from buying the light bulb I need to be able to see my work and to do work on my home, car, engines and equipment.
The "green" replacement bulbs are much lower wattages, so called equivalent watts of around 13 to 24 watts.
I do not find them to be equivalent.
I think they lie about the facts when it comes to equivalents.
I have made do with 45 watt R20 spot lights, but they are not very bright for difficult to reach and see situations.
60W, 75W, 90W incandescent reflector bulbs, the more the better, for difficult to reach and see situations.
With incandescent bulbs one never has to worry about the color temperature because the light is a very broad frequency spectrum, high quality light.
But with green people who are not doing the work, they only see through a very narrow frequency lens.
One size fits all austerity.
Condemning rather than gracious.
They are blinded by and slave to their own legalism.
Throw the baby out with the bath water.
They just don't care.

#3 From 1984:

O'Brien said, "The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power.

"What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal.

"We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power."

#5 State lines are made to cross. light bulbs will be easy to bring in; natural gas for those cities that have outlawed it in new construction, not so much.

#6 State lines are made to cross.

They'd never drive through parking lots within 60 miles of the border with google video vans picking up license plates then pulling over vehicles for fail to turn signal.

Never happen.

*cough New York and cigarettes cough*

#7 We need tariffs on everything California wants to buy from other states and everything California wants to sell to other states. It can be part of the Living Constitution (tm). And it's what New York and California are trying to do with us with their climate lawsuits.

#11 I have my copy of the recall petition right here. All I need to do is sign it and mail it but there's room on it for another signatory so I'm hoping to find someone else to sign it.
