Of the many things Barack Obama has done to hurt the poor, perhaps the worst was his lightbulb decree banning the incandescent light bulb. He did that to fight ‘global warming.’ But even if the global warming hoax were less fictional, no one believes that taking incandescent light bulbs away is going to fix anything.
When the light bulb ban hit, better off people just went out and bought the new bulbs, along with new lamps and the installation of new light fixtures as needed.
But poor folks like me are apt to hang on to old lamps their parents owned long into their own middle ages. They likely live in older houses with weird old light fixtures that date from the 1960s— or the 1930s. These lamps and fixtures were not built for new twisty fluorescent light bulbs. They may not fit, or they may burn out in a scary way after a week or service. And so the poor are left in…. This Obama Darkness.
Another little thing about the light bulb ban. I used to have a rather expensive baby chick brooder— a device to keep baby chickens warm and alive after they hatch, until they get big enough to handle cooler temps without a mama hen to warm them. My chick brooder was heated by light bulbs. So THAT item went into the garbage. And I have to use expensive heat lamps bulbs— which keep the chicks TOO warm. Now, I used heat lamps before, but to keep the chicks at the right temp and save money, I used to switch to 100 watt incandescent bulbs after 2 weeks. Now I have to keep the energy-consuming heat lamp bulbs going a few weeks extra. Thanks to Obama and his partisan nonsense.
