    That ban is fucking retarded. That's exactly the kind of unnecessary regulation people are complaining about.

    George Bush is a Democrat? :confused:

    The market will decide what is obsolete. All of my bulbs are working just fine.

    And what do you propose we do with all the mercury contained in the curlycue bulbs once they start piling up in the landfills over the years and contaminate the ground?

    Yep, I was going to note that as well. The damage is already done. It remains to be seen whether or not they bring that manufacturing back into the U.S. My guess is probably not.

    One more example of how over regulation has harmed our economy and put people out of work.
