Nobody’s Email: The $50 Dollar Light Bulb

Nobody Gets Email

A few day ago, I got this from amfortas in Australia, who sends me the news sometimes before I wake up. I left in his comments, because amfortas, in case you haven’t noticed, has a wonderful sense of humor. (Thanks to amfortas)


From the Washington Post

The U.S. government last year announced a $10 million award, dubbed the “L Prize,” for any manufacturer that could create a “green” but affordable light bulb.

Energy Secretary Steven Chu said the prize would spur industry to offer the costly bulbs, known as LEDs, at prices “affordable for American families.” There was also a “Buy America” component. Portions of the bulb would have to be made in the United States. 

Now the winning bulb is on the market.

The price is $50.

 Amfortas said: Wait, what? The $50 bulb was the winner? What lost? A bulb powered by the hoofbeats of unicorns?

 From the Conservative Daily News:

Dear Energy Chief Chu: You know where you can shove your $50 lightbulb?

All of this idiocy and blatant government stupidity, (not to mention the theft of taxpayer dollars under the guise of a “prize”) is brought to you by Barack Obama’s Liberal-lunatic appointee, Steven Chu. Does America really want four more years of this Liberal-lunacy? Note. Should Energy Chief Chu not understand the title of this opinion piece, here is a clue. It involves a place where the sun doesn’t shine.
