    I hope they've left a few dark corners for Pelosi to hide in.

    I dont have an issue with this. It installs actual products, someone had to be paid to do the install.

    This type of "green" technology is actually useful. It reduces energy consumption, which even if you are skeptical of the whole global warming thing (I am) is a good thing.

    It's gonna be 10 years before the lighting breaks even with it's 'energy savings'. Seriously! You better warm up before you stretch that far - we don't want you pulling a muscle.

    These fixtures often have a lifespan of 20 years plus, making them economically viable.
    Listen I have no love for most democratic policies, but its nice to see em practice what they preach. Some people complain LCD light has issues similar to flourescent, so lets see how the people in the building react to them.

    What, like you do by claiming that I wrote the 10 priorities for the TEA parties?

    I suggest you mind your own fucking business and I'll worry about my embarrassing myself. 'K?

    Deal. Now, since you think this project is such a waste, try calculating out just how much money the old light fixtures would have cost over the 10 year pay back period versus what the new ones will. THEN, calculate how our government could better spend that money they will no longer be spending on inefficient lighting and electrical costs.

    Good idea...

    Soon we will all be using this technology. I compliment the CNS news service for highlighting the Government leading the way in energy conservation
