It was probably the Flaming Ignorami who made it law we are to use light bulbs made out of mercury - a hazmat item. So unknown is this that when a friend of mine dropped a CFL bulb and it broke all over the place, I warned her about the dangers with her toddler running around. She called the pediatrician; the pediatrician's office said the CFL bulbs were not a hazmat item and she could just clean it up with paper towels and throw it away as you would any other thing.
Fluorescent lights and lights emitting mercury are known to cause problems with folks who have certain autoimmune diseases, as well as those with certain learning disabilities. So if I put my tinfoil hat on, am I to assume that we are to see yet MORE autoimmune reactions to which no one can identify a cause because someone else decided what was environmentally good for us?
Nut Party, or Libertarian? Not that there's a difference.

Yep, it works at creating acid rain and pollution which makes a lot of us sick. Oh well, good thing for Obamacare...
Clean coal technology. They don't like that either. Acid rain, ozone, food pyramid, is just snake oil you bought, but we don't want any. Quit trying too get us too buy. Most of don't say anything about the acid rain killing innocent people's of Iraq.

As an Ohio lawyer, I would have thought you would have known there is more than one alternative to the traditional Democrat or Republican candidate. Not seen a ballot lately?
