Energy Efficient Light Bulbs-
Light bulbs, heaters, and all electrically powered products require electricity.
Energy (primarily oil and coal), is required to produce the electricity.
We use huge amounts of foreign oil obtained in the world market to produce electricity and power cars.
The Arabs control a huge percentage of the oil supply.
Every dollar we send the Arabs for oil is a dollar they use to their benefit, at our detriment.
Everyone has understood that for years and demanded we assert energy independence.
Jimmy Carter has been proven correct a thousand times over, and every time a politician demands energy independence it's confirmed again.
There are three ways to obtain energy independence:
- Conservation - Use less oil -(energy efficient appliances, cars, air conditioner, etc. and yes, light bulbs
- Increased Production - Produce more oil. A guaranteed long-term loser as oil is a finite resource, therefore we only delay the inevitable.
- Alternative energy sources,(solar geothermal, wind).
Energy efficient light bulbs are a small, but significant step toward energy independence, as are increased insulation requirements, car mileage requirements, etc.
Until we have achieved energy independence, we'll be sending troops to die in the Middle East to protect the Saudi Royal family's grasp on power, and to assure multinational oil companies have access to all countries oil reserves.
As a note - That's why we must constantly harass Chavez in Venezuela - he insists on controlling his own country's oil reserves. Does anybody serious think we give a damn about democracy ?
Compulsory Medical Insurance -
Right Wingers love to claim they support personal responsibility - yet fight Obama Care - that position is intellectually indefensible.
Unless you're Bill Gates, you cannot possible be able to pay the millions of dollars a medical catastrophe or chronic condition will cost.
When people or their families get sick or injured, you'll get, and accept all the medical care necessary, which they won't pay for. Hence deadbeats and parasites. The people the Right Wing claim to abhor.
Those of us who do pay for medical insurance and pay our out-of-pockets absorb the costs created by the deadbeats failure to pay because the unpaid costs are passed along to us in increased costs for health care providers and taxes for Medicaid and public hospitals.
Just as people have to carry car liability insurance to protect the rest of us from paying for expenses they create but can't pay, people must carry medical insurance for medical costs they will create but not pay.
Damn, personal responsibility should have everyone's support.

The IRS estimates that the cheapest Obamacare plan for an average family of five will cost $20,000 per year.

Personal decision making:

1) new rims for the car, or health insurance
2) new "smart" phone every 6 months, or health insurance
3) new air jordans every year, or health insurance

Sorry, lack of affordability doesn't cut it.

True, but the problem is for those people who are:

1) not buying new rims for the car and are praying the car keeps running because they can't afford to take it for repairs
2) don't even have a cell phone
3) don't buy new shoes all the time, even though the ones they have are wearing down and have holes in them

Ooops, that pretty much describes me.

If I had known about such a fellow as you a week ago I would have been sick at the thought of you. But now I donÂ’t dislike you. I am only bored by you and I also am tremendously sorry for you. I can see you are as restless as a hen.
I guess being confronted with the facts, cold, unequivocal, numerical facts, caused you great angst.

Perhaps,(even using the events you selected), trying to rationalize the number of Americans troops killed that can be blames on Clinton vs. those killed that can be blamed on Bush, caused what is sometimes called a "Paradigm Crisis". That is when the paradigm from which we view the world is revealed to be faulty, if not completely false. The stress that results can cause us all to lash out in anger- but anger based on fear and uncertainty.

Don't worry, we all go through it because all our paradigms are defective and inaccurate to some extent.

Just enjoy a good day and know that we all grow and change forever.

about energy independence,i have read and heard two seperate reports recently that say the U.S. could achieve this as early as 2030.if true,this is the best news that i've heard in years.something else i heard also suprised me,that is that venezeula(not saudia arabia)had worlds largest known oil reserves.anyway,i wonder what will happen when chavez dies,which won't be long according to most reports.

The purpose of your comment and the only reason to make it was to show that in you opinin you are a "big shot".I have a business, a business where my customers know exactly what they get and exactly what it costs. They also have the option to COMPARE what I offer and what I charge to lots of other business's selling the SAME THING. Sometimes we have to work on VERY slim margins because a lot of things out of my control add to costs, and people have some idea of what they should pay.
Hospitals on the other hand don't post prices so consumers can choose the best service. Hell you can ask your doctor who performs operations in his hospital all the time, he says he doesn't know. The last operation I paid for was done by a Canadian doctor who MOVED to Georgia to make more money doing the same thing. A brain surgeon going from 1 million to 2 million just by moving. The hospital bill was close to 200 thousand, after insurance it was cut to approx.$ 100,000. I owed 30 thousand to the hospital. After calling the billing department and asking for a cash discount they cut another 20%. If had NOT ask, I would not have gotten the discount. People are used to asking for discounts before hand, not after the service has been rendered and the billing completed, and they know this. When hospitals have cost competition and post prices encouraging competition I will agree with what you say. A lot of hospitals pretend to be not for profit, that just means they overpay administrators to make sure they stay that way, for profits do just fine.

Until hospitals ACT like a business you and your alter ego are still full of crap.

Regarding light bulbs and soldiers and Obamacare
I was really hoping you were not implying what I thought you were, hence my request for explanation. Unfortunately, you were.

If you want energy independence for this country, we will never get it by following the ideas of the Left because their ideas are not about energy independence - they're about control. Open up ANWR for drilling, open oil production back up in the Gulf and quit limiting our offshore drilling. We allow foreign companies to drill off our coastlines, but we can't - brilliant. He wants to shut down the coal company and the EPA is releasing new standards that are exorbitantly expensive, including those to reduce the amount of mercury released - and yet the Left want to put those stupid lightbulbs in our homes that are far more of a mercury hazard than the coal companies. The same light bulb that must be disposed of as "hazardous waste" and is now being warned against because they leak UV radiation and contribute towards increasing risk of skin cancer - yeah, I want that around my kids. But GE is happy all the way to the bank - love that payback.

Obamacare has nothing to do with personal responsibility and everything to do with government control. How you can possibly see it in any other way just shows you don't understand it at all.

Ronald Reagan summed it up best: "It isn't so much that Liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so."

I figured one of you class A as*holes would post something like that. And I'm glad. Why? Because when I lost my job to downsizing several years ago I started my own business - so I have a job. Yes, it's been slim and a challenge in this economy, but I've never been on welfare, food stamps, etc. How about you? I'm betting you're on 'corporate welfare' aren't you? And by the way, no, I would not be ashamed to "flip burgers" - I paid my way through college flipping burgers. How about you?
