From The Hill, an update on the incandescent light bulb demise:
House Democrats on Monday indicated strong opposition to a controversial bill to repeal federal lightbulb standards, which could lead to the defeat of the measure in an expected Tuesday vote. . .
So, so long to incandescents, because as our secretary of energy, Steven Chu, says:
We are taking away a choice that continues to let people waste their own money.
And yes, Chu really did say that. Ponder on that statement for a while, and ponder well: that is the view of those governing towards those governed. Pretty sad, and kinda scary.
