The world as we know it

Finally a safe light bulb?

After they made it illegal to use incandescent bulbs with their warm soft glow the bright cold light of the mercury laden fluorescent bulbs have been a nightmare. Not only can the flickering trigger epileptics into having fits but if the fluorescent tube isnt a daylight tube then the lack of full spectrum lighting can cause further health issues for people – particularly those who have lupus or sun allergies.Added to this is that if the tube breaks there are toxic issues with mercury – who knows how countries are disposing of millions of tonnes of these mercury laden bulbs every year.

The Daily Bayonet reports on a new bulb that is – hopefully safe!

Photo-sensitivity, lupus and fluorescent bulbs

Compact fluorescent hell

Mercury and human development

Government saying they decide not democracy

Earth hour stupidity

From Parliament today;

“How can we be confident that this prime minister will be any better using that GST money on health than he was using tax funding on home insulation?” Mr Abbott said

“If his own Labor premiers don’t trust, why should I trust him and why should the Australian people trust him?”

Big business, big green ripoff

We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free, and to make room upon the earth for honest men to live in. Thomas Paine

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. RONALD REAGAN,

My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. Adlai E. Stevenson Jr
.......
If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other. Carl Schurz
.......
The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech. Justice Anthony Kennedy
.......
Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. Patricia Sampson
.......
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. Thomas Macaulay
.......
The law will never make men free, it is men that have to make the law free. Henry David Thoreau
.......
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. George Washington
