I hadn't heard of that light bulb ban. Why exactly are they being banned? Because they are dangerous or because they aren't dangerous enough? hehe That latter one seems to be the main reasons for bans.
Now that I think about it...I'm not sure I even know what an incandescent light bulb is...

I made the Obama thread to bring out these exact same points. shhh, lol.
I must eat some dinner, but I'll come back and read the rest of the thread ASAP.

There's no leadership. Who's going to start this revolution? Anytime anybody stands up to make change, the MSM assassinates their character.
Ron Paul would have been a great candidate. But the republicans, during their own primary debates, worked their very hardest to make him sound crazy -- and it worked.
The Dems did the exact same thing with Denis Kucinich. And it worked there, too.
And Nader is just not taken seriously at all -- because Americans would prefer to keep the ballot simple -- you know -- just two candidates. Learning about 3 would be too hard.
So to answer your question, it's never going to change. I know that because it's always been this way. There has always been an elite class of rulers who manipulate the dumbed down public to their own gain, and oppress anyone with a view that challenges their power.
