We talked about the Department of Energy's idiotic $50 LED light bulb that's going to save energy and make the world a better place in which to live. The DOE even gave out a $10 million prize to Philips for creating this loser. Who's going to spend $5,000 to outfit their entire home with the wondrous energy savers? As time goes on, more and more traditional light bulbs will be banned, leaving you few choices.
However, Congress in its finite wisdom left open a glaring loophole. The ban does not apply to rough service light bulbs. These bulbs are used in areas subject to high levels of vibration and movement, such as train stations or industrial areas. In addition, these bulbs last longer and are readily available through numerous sources. Let's see this become a major civil disobedience movement. Let the Congress know that they may be able to control your toilet, dishwasher, washer and dryer, but not your light source.
