Steven Chu, Obama’s astonishingly arrogant (Nobel-prize-winning!) energy secretary, defends the Edison-bulb ban:
We are taking away a choice that continues to let people waste their own money.
Read the PowerLine post at the link, and continue to the Mark Steyn post….Steyn is, as usual, in fine form. But I’m mainly posting this because we need to remember Chu’s comment at election time, to be added to the very long list of statements and actions that show just how disconnected this administration is from traditional American ideas of liberty. I don’t think most Americans yet understand just how extreme this disconnect is, and we need to help ensure that it is made visible.
This is an administration, as I’ve noted before, that is comprised of two kinds of people: theorists and agitators. They do not value individual freedom, and they are not interested in problem-solving.
