New York bans iPods

According to Reuters (2/7/07) a New York State Senator wants to ban pedestrians from using iPods or talking on celphones while walking on the street. Apparently 3 people died because they stepped off the curb and was hit by a car for not paying attention.
Tragic events, but now the New York City police can not fine people $100 for walking with an iPod or celphone.
Government, please get out of our lives and let us do whatever the hell we want to do.  Then again I think it's the governments job to meddle into our lives. They tell us how to live and what to think.  They have nothing better to do then regulate what we wear on our ears when we walk down the middle of the street.  Let's not give up our freedoms people.

California Bans the Light Bulb

According to Reuters (1/30/2007), California lawmaker Lloyd Levine wants to ban all incandescent lightbulbs by 2012.  This is way I love living in California.  When lawmakers can bring their San Francisco politics and enforce it upon me.


First off, yes, there is global warming, but the impact of man has yet to be conclusive.  I think nature has more to do with Global Warming than we do.  Also, the answer to repairing the Ozone is switching over to nuclear power.  If France can do it safely, we can too.


The banning of lightbulbs.  Can you imagine the black market lightbulb?  Incandescent pushers seeing illegal lightbulbs on playgrounds.  Police raids upon unsuspecting Californians.  Walmart executives arrested for willfully violating the illegal lightbult act of 2007.  Middle aged contractors performing back alley track lighting.


Oh well.  I can dream.
