Here is some industrial grade stupid: Laura Ingraham uses plastic straws, steak and incandescent light bulbs to “own the libs”.

Is there no limit to just how fucking stupid this woman is?  And just think, her audience eats up this shit.

Okay, got it?  In case you missed it, this is what Ingraham said:  “Okay. A warning, here it is, the ultimate trigger sculpture, kind of culinary sculpture, it has everything that Democrats hate,” Ingraham said. “Steak, plastic straws, and light bulbs. And if I could have put an SUV on this I would have.”

So — we Democrats are supposed to hate plastic straws, steak, and incandescent light bulbs.  IS SHE STUPID OR WHAT???

Plastic straws.  I’m a liberal Democrat.  Yes, I’m aware that there is some sort of proposal or movement or whatever that argues plastic straws should be replaced by paper straws.  You know what??  I DON’T GIVE A DAMN!!!  I have plastic straws in my home but never use them because I don’t use straws.

Steak.   So, because I’m a Democrat I don’t eat steak?  The last time I had steak was on Labor Day when I grilled — on a charcoal fire — four big, thick ribeye steaks.  In fact, we eat a fair amount of red meat — usually have something made of ground beef once or twice a week; have steak once a month or more.

Incandescent light bulbs.  I guess she thinks there something wimpy or whatever about not using incandescent light bulbs.  Bullshit.  It makes economic sense to use LED bulbs in place of incandescents.   Let’s compare.

Incandescent Light Bulbs Compared to LED Bulbs.

LED Incandescent
Light bulb projected lifespan 25,000 hours 1,200 hours
Watts per bulb (equiv. 60 watts) 8.5 60
Cost per bulb $5 $1
KWh of electricity used over 25,000 hours 212.5 1500
Cost of electricity (@ 0.10 per KWh) $21.25 $150
Bulbs needed for 25,000 hours of use 1 21
Equivalent 25,000 hours bulb expense $5 $21
Total cost for 25,000 hours $26.25 $171
Energy Savings over 25,000 hours, assuming 25 bulbs per household
Total cost for 25 bulbs $656.25 $4275
Savings to household by switching from incandescent bulbs $3618.75 $0

Got that?  Switching to LED bulbs will save $3,618.75 over incandescents for the same amount of light output.  Also, there are other advantages to LED bulbs.

  • They do not get hot.  Incandescent bulbs convert most of their electricity into heat, which is a waste.  LED bulbs stay cool.
  • You can get LED bulbs in many different “light temperatures.”  That is, LED’s range from a soft, creamy light to a brilliant, almost blinding daylight bulb.  In my home, we have the bright daylight bulbs in the kitchen but soft, warm lights in most other rooms.

So — Ingraham thinks that by mocking steak, plastic straws, and LED light bulbs she is somehow “owning the libs.”  All she is proving is just how stupid she really is.  And the people who watch her and agree with her are even more stupid.
