HIGH PRICED BULBS FROM HOLLAND AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME NO TULIPS

Who would announce a 10 million dollar prize for the development of an affordable American made 60 watt light bulb and then award the money to a foreign company that prices the affordable bulb at 50 dollars and doesn’t manufacture it in the United States?  There are only two possibilities, a fool or the U.S. government.

`          THE WINNER !

HERE THEY ARE, COME AND GET ‘EM, 50 BUCKS APIECE

The bulbs do last longer; the claim is 10 years in 8 hour daily use.  They wear out gradually and diminish in brightness as they age so you may want to replace them sooner.  The bulbs generate light in the spectrum referred to as warm which means not as white as an incandescent bulb.  That may be fine if you want to use 6o watters for soft romantic room lighting, but they can be a bit of a strain for reading.

Philips says it is not manufactured in the U.S. but it’s assembled in Wisconsin and some of the parts are made in California.  How an item like a simple light bulb can be manufactured in one country without being assembled there is not explained.  Perhaps it has to do with the bulb costing 50 dollars.

What’s next, a 5 thousand dollar affordable 20 inch lawnmower that doesn’t require gasoline, made in China but the wheels are put on in Idaho?  That’s my comment for today; stay well and don’t forget to flush twice.

  1. This outrageous activity is rampant with the Dems but the Repubs are not doing much about it either. In a word: The Senate, House, and Administration are all equally PROSTITUTES. Some more equal than others, but no need to give the Liberal Socialists all the glory. I love your humorous sarcasm, Bob, and it is a very appropriate and healthy way to get the message across. Thanks to you, this story comes to the light of day.
