Here come the new light bulb standards - YAY LIBS!


Ha, these light bulbs are in your future.  Don't worry though, you'll be saving energy ... and the good news is these bulbs only cost 5-10 times as much as the old bulbs.  Never mind they don't last as long as they claim.  never mind they don't put out the same quality of light.  Never mind having to call the EPA in if you accidentally break one.  Forget all the problems, you're going to save the planet so get out your wallet, got that? Buttcheese?

New light bulb efficiency standards will begin phasing in on Jan. 1 despite intense opposition from conservatives, who have blasted the rules as a textbook unnecessary federal regulation.

While Republicans secured inclusion of a measure blocking funding for enforcement of the standards in a year-end spending bill, energy efficiency groups say the provision will have little practical impact. The Energy Department rules will nonetheless go into effect at the start of 2012.

"The [spending bill] cut funding for enforcement, however the law is still in effect," said Jack Gillis, spokesman for the Consumer Federation of America. "It is our expectation that companies will still comply with the law."

Oh, he's from the "Consumer Federation of America."  That certainly sounds official doesn't it?  I like how he threatens companies ... "it is our expectation that companies will still comply ..."    Or else what, jackass?  How 'bout this, it is my expectation that liberal groups like yours should do whatever they want but stop applying their idiotic ideas to me ... i.e. leave me alone.  How would THAT be for you?  Yes, impossible.

SIGNS THAT AN ORGANIZATION IS LIBERAL:

1 - THEY NAME THEIR GROUP THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF THEIR REAL AGENDA
"Consumer Federation of America" -- do they sound like they're for "consumers" to you?  Or do they sound like they're for the government?  I wonder where these asshats get their money, don't you?
2 - THEY WANT TO AFFECT YOU AND TELL YOU WHAT TO DO - BY FORCE

I was actually going to do some more but I figured some of you would like to offer some others in the comments.  Ok then, have at it.

Gillis, of the Consumer Federation of America, added that individual companies can pressure other companies to comply with the standards in order to keep a level playing field. He said the light bulb standards got caught up in a growing wave of Republican disdain for federal regulations.

“The bottom line is the light bulb became a political victim,” Gillis said. “It was portrayed as an example of overzealous regulation, when in fact none of that is actually true.” More at thehill:

Nooooo, of COURSE it's not true.  The F E D E R A L government writing laws about light bulbs you can use isn't overzealous at all.  Nothing to see here.  Fuhgetaboutit.  See his liberal logic?  I knew you would.   See, when the founders wrote about "limited government" they really meant "unlimited."  This is why you may recall they originally got very busy in the first congresses writing laws about the kind of candle wax you could use.
