In addition to raising auto fuel efficiency standards 40 percent, an energy bill passed by Congress yesterday bans the incandescent light bulb by 2014.
President Bush signed the 822-page measure into law today after it was sent up Pennsylvania Avenue in a Toyota Prius hybrid vehicle. The House passed the bill by a 314-100 vote after approval by the Senate last week.

I can abort my children in the third trimester, but if the doctor uses an incandescent bulb in his task light as he’s extracting the bloody pieces, then the Feds can put a cap in his a$$.
We’d need a small government conservative for that.
“OH GOODY, ANOTHER ETHANOL TYPE MESS BROUGHT TO US BY THE IDIOTS RUNNING CONGRESS - DEMOCRATS.”
Well, that’s what happens when conservatives stay home “to show Republicans” — we all suffer.
If you think this is bad, just wait until Hillary or Obama gets elected president with an overwhelmingly Dem Congress, because conservatives vote third party or stay home.
It is amazing, that people don’t connect cause and effect — between elections and who controls the nation.
“New bulbs are all made in China”
New bulbs are all made with toxic mercury and emit toxic UV. Possibly it’s all part of the environmentalist’s plan to lower the population by 50%.

What are we going to use in out totally enclosed fixtures?
I guess the bugs don’t like the light either....lol. That is one good point though. I’ll have to try a couple outside.
I know they don’t work well with photo electric cut offs. My outside lights have these so they will shut down during the day. About drove a friend of mine nuts, trying to get it them to work.
Obviously the light bulbs didn’t go on in the minds of those who voted for this bill.
Do you suppose the U.S. Customs Agents will be authorized to put us in jail for bringing incadescent light bulbs into the U.S.??
Come on guys, let's boil them in their own oil!
Driven to the President in a Japanese car? Now that’s pathetic. We couldn’t use a hybrid of our own?
Follow the money.
Bugs bunny, eat your heart out.
Hell, I’m smart enough and I’m a flake. Everybody get a note from their doc diagnosed with Seasonal Affectation Disorder, boom, there’s your exemption.
Go ahead and defend this President to the bitter end if you wish.
I won't, and I voted for him TWICE.
Not voting would have been better.
You think any living or dead person has? 822 pages!
Are you serious?! This just pisses me off big time. Why the heck did Bush sign this? Why did the supposive R’s vote for this horse hooey! This actually pisses me off as much as the illegal alien issue. These whackers every last one of them need to go. I’m pissed and tired of being controlled in this manner! What is this CHINA?
