While the House of Representatives passed legislation eliminating red tape and rolling back regulations on businesses this week, Nanny State regulators at all levels of government continued to impose new bans on everything from LED lights to feeding turkeys. At the federal level, 2,266 pages were added to the federal register along with 86 new rules setting quotas for Atlantic Bluefin tuna and determining what assets state savings associations can invest in.

I don’t get the LED ban. I had no idea there were health risks. Do they have mercury in them like the “flourescent bulbs” that the government mandates?

Outdoor LED Lights Banned in Hopkinton: In the small town of Hopkinton, Rhode Island, LED lights will no longer be displayed outdoors after a new council ordinance banned them.

WTF?
Traffic lights are switching to LED technology all across the country, and for good reason.

Government LEDs good, private LEDs bad?

I got an email from Buckyballs asking to call your congressman to "save our balls." http://www.getbuckyballs.com/

I didn’t know what a buckyball was but they look like lots of fun. If a kid is dumb enough to eat them, then they look small enough to flush on out in a couple days with no harm done.

Getting fined for unintentionally feeding turkeys? So, if you squished a knat that was flying around your head and it fell to it’s death to the ground and a turkey wandered by and ate it, you’d be fined for unintentionally feeding the turkey? I call fowl on that.

I will illuminate with burning excrement before I will buy another CF bulb.
