Time to stock up on big ass light bulbs

Well, our duly elected officials in DC weren't allowed to read the C&T monstrosity, or its retarded cousin, the 300+ page amendment. However, someone HAS taken the time to wade through the economy destroying piece of shit and reports the following:

And how will this bill affect you? It has regulations on every single aspect of your daily life. There are light bulb restrictions (no more than 60 watts in your candelabra); in fact thereís a whole section that deals with lamps. If you decide to build a new home, it must meet new and specific energy requirements. If you decide to sell your existing home, a federal inspector must inspect your home, determine itís energy rating, and if your home is found to be unacceptable then you must retrofit and make changes before you will be able to sell.

Hmm. I think the proper response to that bit of nonsense is to reply "blow me", and in a none too polite tone of voice.

But hey, it's not all a loss: I hear that Congress will give m $750 for my seven year old car, which will give me a nifty down payment on a new car, sure to cost upwards of $25,000. So I've got that goin' for me, too. Heck, that sounds almost as pleasant as shoving a red hot poker up the inside of my penis. Let's go!

That's going to help the housing market.
