if its a Free country we be allowed to use what ever type of light bulbs we want to use but its not that way because of the Federal Government ability to regulate under Artile 1 Section 8 Clause 3 known as the Commerce Clause in the US Constitution.

Phase-out of incandescent light bulbs

Federal legislation

In December 2007, the federal government enacted the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which contains maximum wattage requirements for all general service incandescent lamps producing from 310–2600 lumens of light. However, these regulations never became law, as another section of the 2007 EISA bill overwrites them, and thus, current law, as specified in the U.S. Code, "does not relate to maximum wattage requirements."

The efficiency standards will start with 100-watt bulbs and end with 40-watt bulbs. The timeline for these standards was to start in January 2012, but on December 16, 2011, the U.S. House passed the final 2012 budget legislation, which effectively delayed the implementation until October 2012.

Light bulbs outside of this range are exempt from the restrictions. Also exempt are several classes of specialty lights, including appliance lamps, rough service bulbs, 3-way, colored lamps, stage lighting, and plant lights.

Article 1, Section 8

Clause 3. To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

Congress has the power to impose regulations on interstate and international business. This "interstate commerce clause" has been quite controversial in the history of constitutional law; for a long time, judges tended to read the clause narrowly, overturning federal laws they deemed focused mainly on regulating economic activity within states rather than between them. Since the 1930s, however, judges have tended to read the clause broadly, allowing the government to regulate all kinds of economic activity—by setting a national minimum wage, for example.

The song is not a political statement it means that “man is a slave to his possessions.” If you have nothing left to lose, you're not tied down to anything and you're free. You can wander around anywhere, just pick up and go. From a grammatically correct standpoint it should read, "Freedom's just another word for having nothing left to lose."

In Kristofferson words:“When I wrote that, I was trying to show that freedom is a double-edged sword and that you may be free, but it can be painful to be that free. But maybe at the very end, when you leave, you will be free when you've nothing else to lose, you know, when you're gone.”

I don't think they have TOTAL control, but can take it. Enron is a great case showing what happens with 'capitalism' gone a muck in the energy industry with the only regulators being the SEC.

Many songs not penned in a political tone become political rallying cries never the less.

Enron had no governmental-type authority over energy distribution and usage.

Exactly. I'll sleep comfortably and you can sweat it out but drive your golf cart to work. I'll probably still pay less for electricity than you at the end of the month.

I heard a statistic on the radio today on the Bill Bennet show. His guest said that wind energy costs 300% more to use and solar 500% more to use than the energy we use today. Hey, give people a choice. If others want to pay that kind of money to keep green, I say go for it, but don't force me to do the same. My green stays in my pocket.

Hmmmmm.....
Nope, not when you are in traffic behind an accident and tied up for a few hours. You can sweat it out as you watch your battery gauge go lower and lower. Then in desperation, you turn off the CD player, cut the AC or heat and freeze to death. Maybe even your headlights.

What are you going to tell your boss when you wake up in the morning and realize there was a power outage in the middle of the night? "Sorry boss, I can't make it in today, my car isn't charged!"

Go ahead and buy those electric cars. Save all that gasoline. It will offset the gasoline I use when I use my remote starter. Now that I have the latest one which operates from my cell phone, I can run my car longer because I can start it from anywhere in the country. It was 20 degrees here in Cleveland today, and was it great getting in a nice warm car with the windshield already defrosted so I didn't have to sweep the snow away.
