The Green Police Are Already Here

Audi's Super Bowl commercial (see it below) was not only funny, it's frighteningly accurate as a look into the future of American freedoms - and the lessening thereof. The ad pokes fun at "green laws," and shows people being arrested by Eco Fascists for doing things deemed environmentally irresponsible. The scenes in the ad, however, are really not so exaggerated. As reported here in December of 2007, Congress passed a law that will force us all to replace the incandescent bulb with the compact fluorescent lightbulb (CFL), requiring that traditional bulbs be phased out by 2020. You got that? It will be illegal to use a normal, incandescent light bulb. The new CFLs contain mercury, and dropping one literally creates a hazmat situation. Watch the video, then we'll continue.... Environmentalists show their true colors in the case of CFL bulbs. Many of the environmental laws are more about control of people than about protection of the environment, and the environmentalists unwittingly admit this. An example of this comes from "Indranil M." in an article he wrote at (emphasis added): "Though these CFL bulbs contain mercury and are Hazardous to the environment, because of which they also happen to be non-Biodegradable. But there is no need to worry. There are web sites like energy star and earth911 which will give you proper instructions for its disposal without harming the environment." "No need to worry?" Nah! When that CFL burns out, just seek out the complicated instructions for disposal, and be sure to follow them lest you pose a health risk to yourself. Read what the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) advises if if a mercury-containing light bulb breaks. It's laughable. Compare that to tossing the harmless incandescent bulbs into your trash bin and forgetting about it. How can environmentalists and their Liberal sympathizers justify this as a move to protect the environment? Well, they can't really, not logically.
