Once we're in charge, we can work on civil rights for all light bulbs.

54. Why are you pushing your beliefs on me?
It's commonly accepted that traditional light bulbs have tungsten wires. It's been that way for centuries. It's how we're wired. You "alternative" light bulb-pushers are destroying the fabric of this country, and starting us down a slippery slope. If alternative light bulbs are OK, what's the next step down the path of moral degeneracy? Computers powered by box turtles?

This country was meant to welcome ANYONE. If you look closely, there is no mention of tungsten ANYWHERE in the Constitution.

Box turtles? That's a strawman argument if I've ever seen one!

We must preserve traditional light bulbs! We've already got initatives on the ballots in several state elections to ban non-tungsten light bulbs, it's only a matter of time.

35. CNN is reporting that a crew has APPROACHED the light bulb...
And are eyeballing it tentatively, but have not yet begun to set up a ladder, much less remove the bulb. A reporter at the scene says they appear to be discussing the situation. Of course, the police won't let them get too close to the actual light bulb, but I'll take the word of CNN over your nameless "eyewitness" anyday. :P

http://www.democraticunderground.com/forums/rules_detai...



Duplicate Topics and Spamming

Do not post duplicate topics that have already been posted. There are different levels of enforcement in different forums. For example, the Latest Breaking News forum has extremely strict rules against duplicate topics, but the General Discussion forum is much more lenient. Cross posting of duplicates in the two General Discussion forums is not permitted. Cross-posting of duplicates in other forums is occasionally permitted if there is a clear reason for doing so.

Do not spam the message board by posting the same message repeatedly, or by posting a flood of different messages. We have an automatic spam filter which blocks out members who post numerous messages in a short period of time.

72. Ok, since you brought up the children, I'll have to give you that one.
Liberals care more about the children than the rethuglians. We believe in education, and because I believe so much in education, I want the candle industry to have the opportunity to educate us on their perspective.

Any other arguments here?

109. But Edison countered that very wisely...
"Give a man some whale oil, and you feed his lamp for a day. Teach a man to use a light bulb, and you feed his lighting needs forever."

120. You can hide behind your "pro-choice" facade all you want
In reality, your kind are the moral degenerates endorsing the Holocaust of unborn light bulbs. If we valued every light bulb, God wouldn't have punished us with Hurricane Katrina.
