Status Quo Really Pays Off

Hound Dog thinks that if oil independence was really a US government concern then there would be a movement afoot to replace all incandescent light bulbs with LED light bulbs, saving about 25% of the electricity used in the United States and the billions of barrels of oil used to generate it, almost overnight. This would cause the price of heating oil and gasoline to plummet accordingly, and put a big, almost instant hurt on OPEC.

Why don't we? Same reason there will never be prison reform, economical bulk storage of electricity, overhauls of the criminal justice and health care systems, pebble bed nuclear reactors, curtailment of the US defense industry, and much more. There are simply too many powerful people making money on the status quo.

But you already knew that already, right?

Simple-mindedness Rules!

If the simple-minded troika (Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld) that got America into Iraq really thought there were weapons of mass destruction there, America would never have invaded. No? Then why haven’t we invaded North Korea? Logic could make the case that the UN weapons inspectors in Iraq made sure there were no weapons there, clearing the way for the invasion.
