Well, your better audio and guitar amps STILL use tubes.
Some of them do. Lots of top-notch audio equipment is all solid-state.
If they die easily because of power fluctuations of levels that are perfectly common in residential buildings
Maybe the fluctuations you are experiencing are not "perfectly common". Myself, I have had to replace two CFLs in 9 years due to failure, but they were fairly early models.
Though I think that fixtures designed for the different light types is better than plugging in adapting bulbs.
Not sure what you mean by that...? I haven't run across light socket yet where I could not directly replace an incandescent with a CFL or LED...?
Because Battlestar Galactica 2003 is the best sci-fi, and possibly the best TV show of all time.
It was a great TV show, but I sure the hell wouldn't want to live there...
If they don't want a particular benefit, whether in general or just Denmark's particular implementation of it, the American can choose to save the money or find an alternate benefit more to his or her liking, while the Danish citizen has no choice but to pay the tax and accept whatever benefits the state chooses to provide.
Ah, the old "freedom of choice" argument. For example, Americans are free to get medical care or insurance that they can't afford, or to be in debt for the rest of their lives to get a college education. Now that's freedom!
Let me clue you in - you have created a false dichotomy there. Those are not the only options in America. I have a college education, medical insurance I can afford, and no debt except the mortgage on my house. And I wasn't born rich, either - far from it.
Working people shouldn't have to pay taxes to support them.
That's begging the question. We could all just agree to live in a society together, where those who can will do, and those who can't will do whatever they can
And what if we don't all just agree to that? Why shouldn't creative, productive and capable people enjoy the fruits of their labors, instead of having them taken away and given to somebody else? Why should I be your beast of burden? Of course, we already know the answer to that - the proletariat is larger numerically, and so any democratic society inevitably trends toward socialism. God forbid anybody should try to get ahead.
