California, New Jersey, Soviet Russia...

They're all about the same. Especially after reading this tidbit from the "Nanny State Chronicles."
Last month, California Assemblyman Lloyd Levine announced he would propose a bill to ban the use of incandescent bulbs in his state.

And Thursday, New Jersey Assemblyman Larry Chatzidakis introduced a bill that calls for the state to switch to fluorescent lighting in government buildings over the next three years.
I can understand the govenrment switching over the bulbs in its own buildings. Fine, save us taxpayers a dime or two (while we shell out thousands of dollars to support all the illegal immigrants in this country that leech off of the system. Something about straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel.) but don't send troops into MY HOUSE to run a federal inspection on what I use in my bedside lamp. That's going a bit waaaaaayyyy too far.What are they going to do next? Measure how much water my toilet uses each flush?
