    One of the troubling things about the administrations idea of efficient and what we should use was seen this week. Phillips won an award from the government for a new LED lightbulb. it is more efficient, but costs $50 a bulb!

    Phillips will be happy, not with only winning $10 million, but sales on the new bulb will be high profit items undoubtably. The old Edison bulbs at .39 cents are not much of a money maker.

    We will when it is the only bulb offered.

    I find that Obama doesn't care a BIT about what happens to the people of the USA because of energy costs. He doesn't care that the last time fuel hit this level that it triggered the housing crash because people had to decide whether to fill their tanks and go to work -- and loose the house -- or whether to save the house and loose their job. Turns out that they lost both.

    Obama has been going around the nation giving speeches about energy costs. He NEVER says that he will reduce those costs. Instead he ALWAYS says that he is on a search for green energy or other energy solutions that are not oil-based.

    BIG NEWS ITEM... THERE ARE NO OTHER VIABLE ENERGY SOURCES THAT WILL BE IN OPERATION WITHIN THE NEXT DECADE.

    So, in other words, "twist" you, American people. Buy my Chevy Volt (which if actually sold in any numbers would eventually shut down the power grid).

    Electrifying commentary my friend :smilewinkgrin:

    Q: How many Obama voters does it take to change a lightbulb?
    A: None. Hoping that it would change is quite enough.

    Q: How many autoworkers does it take to change a lightbulb?
    A: 17 at GM, Ford and Chrysler; 1 at Honda, Hyundai and Toyota.

    Q: How many Chicago pols does it take to change a lightbulb?
    A: Forget you, what am I gettin' outta this?

    Q: How many Democrats does it take to change a lightbulb?
    A: It's burnt out on the Republican side, so we're not changing it.

    Q: How many MSM journalists does it take to change a lightbulb?
    A: No need, Obama is the Light.
