if you need to be reminded of the name of a real conservative, let me know
Does Bloomberg object to the outcome of the 2004 election as well? Or perhaps is he referring to Bernanke?
I told you you should have voted for Kenny Kramer.
Haha. I did vote Libertarian in ‘05 when it was clear it would be a landslide.
BTW, are Mark Green and his moneybags brother still making a hash of ErrAmerica?
Bloomberg was the most conservative major party nominee in each of his elections.
Most NYC Republicans would be Democrats elsewhere.
Most NYC Democrats would be institutionalized elsewhere.
Bloomberg’s “joke” doesn’t even make sense. Is one a better economic forecaster if he/she wins an election?
And if florescent light bulbs is the best they could come up with as an example of how fighting global warming is economically beneficial, color me unpersuaded.
Fluorescent are economically beneficial for some, but for others they are only monetarily beneficial, not economically beneficial. The difference is that economics isn’t just about money: it’s the science of human choice and its consequences, so consumer happiness is an important consideration in any transaction.
Fluorescent bulbs suck. The inadequate output and artificial feel make me sick. I would need 500W of fluorescent lighting, with a suitable mild yellow tint, to equal the output of the 150W bulb I use in my desk lamp and the 200W in my bedroom ceiling. Now that’s light, and I’m willing to pay a higher electric bill for it.
Incandescent bulbs do cost more money in the long term, but they give me better light for the money I spend, so to me they’re economically superior to fluorescent.
Oh, and the last fluorescent bulbs I bought broke within the warranty period, but after the store’s return perior. The manufacturers required that I mail them back at my own expense to get replacements. You know what? For all I care, they can stick the bulbs up their tightwad asses, and twist. That’s when I went back to incandescent and realized what I had forsaken.
