Lights out for the incandescent
light bulb as of Jan. 1, 2014

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:ruready?, 12/31/2013 2:58:15 PM

When the ball drops on New Year’s Eve, the year ends -- and so does the ordinary lightbulb. Jan. 1. marks the end of a seven-year effort to outlaw the ordinary lightbulb, thanks to a 2007 law that raised minimum efficiency standards for traditional incandescent bulbs far beyond what the technology can manage. It’s lights out for the traditional light bulb, in other words, which was essentially killed by that bill. “The government started phasing out incandescents in 2010, starting with the 100-watt bulb, and then followed by the 75-watt,” explained Melissa Andresko, communications director for lighting-automation company Lutron. “Come

The American people should have never allowed the government to get their busy little bodies in our toilets. Once they got away with that edit, they started looking for other areas that needed "fixing".. Nothing worse than government bureaucrats with time on their hands and a mission.

Google "Rough Service Lightbulb"

More expensive than the 25 cent ones we were used to, last a long time, and are far cheaper than CFL Hazmat Bulbs.

The real reason that GE lobbied to get rid of their product was that they were too cheap - Pay up for those Haz-Mat bulbs!

FTA: Home Depot has a six-month stockpile, according to Mark Voykovic, the store’s national light bulb merchant.

I´ve been doing my part to empty their shelves. Each time I go in I ask the employee nearest to the Lighting department if they know how to dispose of a CFL. The answer has always been, "No." And then I pick up a few more 12 or 16 packs of incandescent bulbs and tell them, "Me either, but I hear it´s dangerous and expensive."

For more years than I can remember, broken fluorescents were put in the curbside trash. In fact, the custodians at my highschool had a machine that groundthem to dust so the tubes would not shatter in the trash. All of a sudden this is a problem. I refuse to buy the CFLs.

Apparently there is a loophole in the law that allows the sale of rough incandescents as the poster above referred to.

George W Bush gave us this one. Some might claim it was part of some deal, but no one remembers the other side of it. All we remember is that we got sold out. Trading freedom away always seems to work that way. No one ever remembers the price they got for it because it is NEVER worth it.

And now that the country is awash in cheap electricity thanks to the vast amounts of cheap natural gas we have since discovered, punishing ourselves with light bulb rules to conserve fractions of a percent of electrical usage is laughable. Or it would be if it weren´t so infuriating.

Incandescent light bulbs are 100% efficient in converting electrical energy into light and heat. They are perfect for use in an oven that will fry anything else on the market, and for the chicken house where you need a little heat this time of year. If you are heating your house with electric power, you just as well have the light too.

Our stockpiling and the "rough use" loophole do not change the fact that the Big-Gov wing of the GOP gave us this mess, and further reneged on its promise to undo it. See also ethanol, welfare, taxation, regulation, etc.

1. just ignore the disposal requirements of CFL´s.
2. the cfl´s are great in many applications. I can put a 100 watt equivalent in a fixture that would decompose and present a fire hazard from the heat of a 100 watt incandescent.
3. Pay attention to the "color" when you buy them. soft white to daylight makes a tremendous difference in how bright they are.
4. LED´s are pricey, now. But a 50,000 hr life in a difficult to replace location makes sense. I bought a big batch at a great discount for my church for a 3 story high ceiling over the altar that cost them $400 just to rent the lift to reach the bulbs when they burned out. The drop in electricity cost(factor of 10 or more) plus in Florida, the AC to dump the heat of the 90 watt spot bulbs made a payback of less than a year in electricity alone.
5. yes, up north you get "free" heat from them, but in the rest of the country we pay to extract the heat they generate through our AC most of the year.

No, we should not be forced to use them, but i have lots of applications where they make great sense.

Let me go check in the garage cabinet... I´ve been buying incandescent bulbs at garage and yard sales for the last few years and I think my stock will last for another 15 years. Since I´m in my eighties, I probably should list them in my Will.

By the way, you know that ship the environmental freaks sent up to the North (or South Pole, I don´t remember which) is stuck in the ice and can´t get out. They are having to send rescue stuff to save their frozen hinnies.

37% of Voters Fear
the Federal Government
Rasmussen Reports, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: ruready?- 4/19/2014 5:44:09 PM     Post Reply
Thirty-seven percent (37%) of Likely U.S. Voters now fear the federal government, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Forty-seven percent (47%) do not, but another 17% are not sure. Perhaps in part that’s because 54% consider the federal government today a threat to individual liberty rather than a protector. Just 22% see the government as a protector of individual rights, and that’s down from 30% last November. Slightly more (24%) are now undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) As recently as December 2012, voters were evenly divided on this question: 45% said the federal government

A week and a half ago, when House Republican leaders realized that their own conservative members might align to defeat legislation protecting Medicare physicians from a big automatic pay cut, they took the unusual step of cutting them out of the tangle altogether. While negotiations were ongoing, the Majority Leader, Eric Cantor, darted on to the House floor and, after brief consultation with Democratic leaders, cleared the Medicare "doc fix" by voice vote—a procedure that´s typically reserved for fast tracking uncontroversial legislation. The yeahs and nays were not recorded. A bill that divided the GOP conference, and might very well

Conversely, the “thin and unfit” waifs have the worst body types for long-term health.

Wenzhou - Thousands of Chinese Christians have mounted an extraordinary, round-the-clock defence of a church in a city known as the ´Jerusalem of the East´ after Communist Party officials threatened to bulldoze their place of worship. In an episode that underlines the fierce and long-standing friction between China´s officially atheist Communist Party and its rapidly growing Christian congregation, Bible-carrying believers this week flocked to the Sanjiang church in Wenzhou hoping to protect it from the bulldozers. Their 24-hour guard began earlier this week when a demolworshippers say cost around 30 million yuan (£2.91

Louisiana state senator worries

At a Glance: The current cockfighting law contains language that makes it difficult to enforce because it specifies a certain species of chicken. Proposed legislation would fix the loophole by expanding it to include any kind of foul forced into fighting for sport. It also increases penalties by putting them on par with dog fighting. The Louisiana Senate Judiciary C Committee advanced the bill Tuesday (April 1), but not without some debate from a St. Landry Parish lawmaker about ramifications of the proposed law revisions on a sport he called "chicken boxing." The bill: Senate Bill 523, sponsored by Sen.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday blasted the Obama administration’s decision to extend enrollment in the healthcare law’s insurance exchange for some people. “What the hell is this, a joke?” Boehner said at his weekly press conference. He was responding to the administration’s announcement on Tuesday evening that people who had begun the process of signing up for insurance through the federal exchanges would have until mid-April to do so, instead of March 31. The Speaker called the move “another deadline made meaningless,” adding it to a litany of unilateral changes to the law that the administration has made.

Thanks to the success of engineers like Mr Gallegos in pushing the frontiers of hydraulic fracturing,

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
