First, They Came For Incandescent Bulbs, But I Wasn’t Paying Attention

Then they came for big screen televisions, and no doubt they’ll notice:

The California proposal—which could be adopted this summer—would forbid retailers from selling TVs that require what state officials think is too much power. Proponents claim they are mandating energy efficiency, and who could object to that? The practical effect, however, would be to remove TVs with screens 40 inches or bigger from the market.

Why not let the controlled markets work, and just let the sales fall as part of a depression caused by other leaders of that mindset?

Because that’s not ruling the peasants, baby.
