Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Part of the latest horse droppings of US media comes in the form of light bulb legislation.  Let's all do our part to help the enviornment by buying energy efficient lights made by slaves making 65 cents an hour in sweatshops in a Communist totalitarian police state.  Don't break one either or you will instantly be over the TLV levels for toxic mercury.  
While there is no doubt we are making radically stupid decisions in regards to the enviornment the obvious response of supporting sweatshops seems like a poor answer.

Do we really need those cell phones and their watt sucking ugly towers every half mile?

Do stores have to be open 24/7 seven days a week?

Do we need 300 channel of useless and tasteless crap?

Do most people know a $20,000 solar system would power most needs of a home?
