    House turns out lights on Barton's bulb bill - The Hill's E2-Wire

    So the Republicans wasted all their time on this issue, just to fail in the part of Congress they have a large majority of.

    And how much time did the idiot Green Cultists waste on telling me what kind of light bulb I can use?

    Yep. Hopefully they eventually start to realize that failing to get things like this done is NOT going to help their chances to maintain and/or increase their numbers in 2012.

    I was surprised they bothered to have the vote if they didn't have the necessary amount. Unless they've decided to once again have legislation that amounts to nothing more than symbolism since it can't even get out of the part of Congress they control by a wide margin.

    The government telling us which light bulbs to buy. How fcukking gay?

    WHo cares.......I guess we have to throw the green k00ks a bone. As far as any significant environmental legislation goes.......nada...........zilch........zero......egg. Any climate change BS is in the shitter and will be for at least several years..............and I for one am giddy about it.:fu: No longer have to sit here sweating wondering of my electric bill is going to double at the hands of these environmental nut cases.

    We'll give 'em the bulbs.............:up:

    I would rather see them spend their days passing legislation they know will be shot down in the Senate beacuse it's the RIGHT legislation (like this bill) than to pass a single bill all year that they know the Senate will approve and Obimbo will sign.

    The question to ask now is this: Have Republicans taken up legislation to allow corporations that own canneries to put is much damn salt as they want in canned food? Or better yet, is there a constitutional amendment pending that would make the seasoning of food a constitutional right?

    Seniors starve because they and their families fail to plan... Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Results.

    America's economic crisis has been largely caused by the Government. The less they do, the more likely this economy is to rebound.
