We all know something is wrong in our country. We just cannot agree on the cure. The Democrats say one thing, and if you are a Republican you say they have no idea what they are saying.
The republicans KNOW what to do, they say, but the Democrats say you are crazy, that cannot work.
Then you have many of us that say neither of you have the answer, we need a third party. Now the Tea Party says everybody is wrong (and they may be right).
Wouldn’t you love to see someone come up who actually said that we all are gonna have to suffer some to bring this back out. And we are. We are also gonna have to get some jobs back into the USA. I read an article by Ken Herron who said we have two plants left in this country making the incandescent bulb.
As you know, the incandescent is doomed by law. It is on it’s way out and the CFL bulb is ordered to replace it. The CFL is made in China none in the USA, so there goes another bunch of jobs. The CFL is cheaper to operate but a little higher in price. The CFL is supposed to last much longer, and probably does. But Ken says there are three pages of gov’t instructions on how to clean up the bulb should it break. I had heard that also. There is enough of mercury I think to kill a man in the bulb if breathed directly into the lungs.
Now it is a good idea to use less energy to light our house, but at what cost. I put the CFL’s in the motor home because of the danger of heat generated by the incandescent bulbs. But why can’t we make them here if they are that good. Does EVERYTHING have to be made in China?
Anyway I am becoming a Libertarian slowly. Yeah I know their views are radical, and they don’t have a chance, but I have been voting for the lesser of two evils for as long as I can remember because I did not want to waste my vote. I might change next time unless I see someone like Perot in the future. Everything he predicted happened, it seems.
Thanks for reading this drivel.
