GE ... the left's Haliburton ... lobbied for LED bulbs and closing US plants and jobs


In short ... GE lobbies to get law passed that will make incandescent bulbs illegal ... thereby shutting down plants ( and losing hundreds of jobs) in the US while GE then ramps up manufacturing of these new LED bulbs in factories in China ...

GE blamed environmental regulations for the closing.
...

So, GE gets environmentalist brownie points for selling “clean” light bulbs, and they also get to charge more for their bulbs.
...
Been hearing about this for a while. So GE may be getting behind it to put profits in front of, of, well, the freedom of choice and the American way.

GE, You can buy better, but you can't pay more.

Their also Big Business (tm), a huge defense contractor and they don't treat employees well. Doesn't sound very left to me-maybe they just play both sides to hedge their bets.

One big left wing cabal Honestly, it's orders of magnitude above Cheney's link to Haliburton. Remember, Haliburton has to compete for government bids. H clears the way for GE

Nukies by G E are perfectly safe as the can be.


Just ask Obama. He IS the nukie ( G E ) biggest pusher of the Fuku shima reactor designs in the USA. Especially those that ........DO NOT .............have unlimited water supplies availiable for ..........immediate........ cooling after a earthquake.

Storing all the fuel rods in a simple swimming pool is a perfectly safe design.

Ask Obama & Immeltedown.

What are the alternatives? Coal ends up killing more people, solar and wind ain't enough. Turn out more lights?

Low, slow and dirty
Why would anyone think that Corp.America gives ah rats butt about America. All they want is our money and to stack the deck in there favor in order
to force us to pay them. Pretty sad considering they enjoy our freedoms of capitalism.
I put the blame on our corrupt politicians for selling us out countless times and still getting re-elected by the voters. So its safe to say we deserve 1/2 the blame.

Honest question here ....................( or two .... Ok well , , maybe even a bunch of em )


Any one else of you get the feeling that no matter who is in charge , us , the average joes , are guarenteed to get boned ? Its no secret that I vote "R" , , and ive previously explained why ( in a nutshell , i'd be afraid to live in a country with so many crooks and an unarmed population , and the "D"s have wanted to take the guns away for years ! ) but im not blind to the fact that there ARE crooks on both the R and L sides .

Exactly which of the "checks and balances" system is failing to allow such crookedness to exist ?

And why should some old retired mechanic even have to be asking these kinds of questions ? If my machines didnt run , and run well every day , , , I'd have never made it to retirement , I'd have been fired in the first week on the job ........... So , since our country is so financially broken , why havnt we fired ALL of these jokers and tried our best to find the few honest joes left in the country to fix the money side of things back up .


Someboby , somewhere , aint doin right , , , , , , and it aint ME

People DO NOT understand 1 basic problem with Radioactive ANYTHING.


It NEVER dissapates fast enough, once it is activated for Reactors OR Nuclear Medicines injected into a person.

NO ONE can EVER put out a Nuclear Fire once it starts. It " BURNS FOREVER "".
Millions of years.
That is how long the the world is being rained on by ALL nuclear accidents.

Bussiness people running ANY government. Is a " Weapon of Mass Destruction ".

Chernobyl, Bopal, India, Army Corp of Engineers .. Missisippi River Division, Fukushima Burning fuel rods, ALL nuclear reactors. Etc.

Wall Street & the Futures & Commodities Markets.

Solar, wind, tidal..wave action ARE 24 hour a day sources. VERY SAFE in any screw up. Ocean power IS RIGHT NEXT TO the largest cities. Very LOW COST to tie into.

Why NOT ?????

Ask ANY big energy supplier. SCREW YOU. If you think we are going to change anything. We have it made the way it is.
