Yes, the title is from the Department of Redundancy Department. Nope, this is not going to be a post about the foaming-at-the-mouth, rabid left wing protesters – though it is good to see O’Reilly giving air time to these nut jobs. Exposing the true darkness that infests the left is always a good thing – just like it is for the far right with skin heads and the KKK.
No, this is a post about incoherent and mad left wing policies. The product of the ‘moderate’ element of the mad left.
We all know the left is obsessed with telling us how to live our lives; from eating to smoking to drinking (as if to cry out for help with their own bad habits). We are regaled by how dangerous second hand smoke is to anyone within 25 feet in open air (especially around airport terminals crammed with cars and diesel buses going by!). Left wing nosy bodies are even now attempting to pass laws against smoking in your own house and car.
And what about First Nag Michele’s war on fast food? Supposedly we are killing our children by allowing MacDonalds to exist. There is now a war going on against Happy Meal toys, vending machines and home made lunches. There is no limit to the danger we lousy parents expose our kids when we let them eat.
So where do these paragons of virtue get off requiring us to place cancer causing, deadly light products all through our houses?
Energy saving light bulbs ‘contain cancer causing chemicals’
Fears have been reignited about the safety of energy saving light bulbs after a group of scientists warned that they contain cancer causing chemicals.
Their report advises that the bulbs should not be left on for extended periods, particularly near someone’s head, as they emit poisonous materials when switched on.
So second hand smoke and french fries are evil, but cancer-causing, chemical-packed light bulbs which require an EPA SWAT team to clean up if they break are mandatory next to your child’s bed?
Incoherent madness. No wonder these people hate Main Street America – it makes them look so damn stupid.
Update: Meant to add this link to even more horror stories about the CFL bulb, now required near a baby’s crib near you.
