The Change Light Bulb Act of California

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 1:32 am

How many liberals does it take to screw a light bulb? – that’s the subject of today’s’ Talking Points memo.

The United Nations is about to release a report.  It’s not about terrorist, war or peace (as if the UN can tell the difference), its not about the stagnant socialist economies that have a strong hold on third-world nations.  It’s not even about curing AIDS in Africa.

What this long needed report is on – global warming.

Panting with anticipated breath, long before the report is released, the Eiffel Tower will go dark.  It’s 20,000 lights will be shut off to lower the temperature of the earth and help us all avoid the immanent threat of being fried to death by mother nature. 

But for only 5 minutes.

But lets not pick on the French.  We do have California where Democrat Assemblymen Lloyd Lavene  who has plans to introduce the ‘how many legislators does it take to change a light bulb act.’

Trust me, this is no joke.  I can’t make this stuff up.

The assemblyman wants a ban – a total ban on incandescent light bulbs in the entire state by 2012.

He says “. . . incandescent light bulbs were first developed almost 125 years ago, and since that time they have undergone no major modifications.  Meanwhile they remain incredibly inefficient; converting only about 5% of the energy they receive into light.”

Likeminded Senator Barbara Boxer recently swapped out all the incandescent light bulbs in her capital orifice – opps I mean offices.

Our world and the alternate world of California has genuine problems.  And what do we get from legislators who are supposed to be the best and the brightest? 

Panic over light bulbs – and two words come to mind here: 

Dim            wits.

And that’s the memo
