Bloviating Zeppelin: Fornicalia Bans Big Screen Televisions

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Fornicalia Bans Big Screen Televisions



On November 19th, the Fornicalia Energy Commission voted 5 - 0 for new efficiency regulations affecting flat screen televisions up to 58 inches. Those rules become law on January 1st of 2011.

Ever more Draconian rules will take effect January 1st of 2013, mandating a 50% power savings.

Either meet these rules in those time frames or don't sell televisions in Fornicalia.

In a statement responding to the ruling, the Consumer Electronics Association argued that the regulations would lead to higher prices, lost retail jobs and a decline in Fornicalia tax revenue.

Also in response, the Reason Foundation's Steven Titch writes:

The energy commissioners are really concerned about our prosperity. They fret that too many people are buying bigger TVs, hooking them up to Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), cable boxes, computers and digital cameras. We simply can't have that. These home electronics now consume about 10 percent of household electricity, according to PG&E. So here comes the state's nanny to tell taxpayers how they should be using electricity and to tell us we are using too much of it watching big screen TVs.

This, of course, in consideration of Fornicalia's current unemployment rate of 12.5%. And the unemployment rate of 15.8% in Fresno County, Fornicalia.

You're flushing your toilets too much. You're using too much toilet paper. Your fecal material is too thick and too dense due to your horrific eating habits. You exhale too much carbon dioxide and, again, your nasty eating habits result in excessive flatulence.

The sky is falling.

Well? Maybe it really is.

you know, I can't even GET 150 watt regular bulbs at the grocery store. If our side's right and those hacked emails are as real as we say they are (and they are), I want those lightbulbs BACK.

What the HECK is happening to our freedoms? Now they'll tell us what size TV to buy? We can't even GET the ones we want? #$*(&#@$*& them

Z: I stocked up on regular incandescent bulbs from Costco & Sams Club some time ago, but I am running and now notice that both places only carry CFLs for standard bulb size now. Lovers of mercury in the environment, unite!
