The USA to Ban the Incandescent Lightbulb--Stop the Ban!

Reddy says: Save My Nose!
The incandescent lightbulb was officially banned in the UK on September 1, 2009, and I blogged about its demise then. The United States also voted to ban the bulb in 2007. Did anyone notice? No. Americans don't notice until something is taken away. The incandescent light is to be banned and outlawed in 2012 in the United States. You will be forced to use the low light, flourescent tubes that make everything look green and give off light that suppresses the immune system, causes epileptic seizures and skin disorders among other maladies some still to be discovered. And did I mention that they are filled with mercury? And this is supposed to be better for the environment?! I suppose so. Think about it,  if you use the bulbs as directed, your immune system is compromised, and if that happens, you go through the pearly gates earlier than expected (well, hopefully, anyway), if you do that then you won't be taking up space on the planet, using your car, breathing oxygen or consuming food that is going to be so scarce with the coming earth changes.  Fabulous plan, eh? Eugenics in your lamps! 

America, while there is no hope for us in Europe.....there is still time for you to do something. Get involved. A grassroots campaign was launched a few weeks ago and it is being spearheaded by Representative Fred Upton of Michigan who is the Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee. Similar bills have been introduced by Joe Barton of Texas, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee and Michael Burgess also of Texas. Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming is also introducing a bill.  Write your congressional representatives.....tell them to vote to repeal the ban.( Go to the little "Reddy Kilowatt" Electric Man on the right of this blog and sign the petition to end this ridiculous ban and assault on our well-being.)  Tweet, facebook it....get involved...now.

Please read my previous blog at Dim-Watts at EU Strike Again which was posted in 2009. This will give you more information on why this is such an important issue. It's not about saving the planet. You can do this in other ways. These bulbs are dangerous to your health.

Be informed. Don't be a lemming. Turn off the TV and find out what is really happening to your health and the health of your world. And by the way, if you are reading this, please inform yourself of what is happening in Europe with the ban on health supplements to take effect on May 1, 2011....because America...just like the lightbulb ban...you are next. Get off your kisters, folks...take back your country, your health and your life...now! This is not a political partisan issue. This is a concern for everyone.
