    Seems like Trump wants to undo all of Obama's "accomplishments."

    Cool. Fine with me.

    I've changed a lot of my lights in the house over to LEDs, but love the big 150 watt 3-way by my recliner...when it's cool outside and in the house, that baby throws some heat along with light when I'm reading or watching the TV.

    Is there anything the government does that isn't an F-up?

    Anything?

    I like my current led bulbs, but how much money did it take to get to this point? Since it's mandatory, it's like paying for their R&D program. 15,000 hours? Yeah, right? About the failing (blinking) led streetlights, or the stoplights with a bunch of leds dark? I had a bunch of earlier led bulbs fail, and that was when they were costing boo coo money.

    Around the house though, they do save energy. It's nice to keep the house lit up like a Christmas tree with a little generator during a power outage. (Notwithstanding that whole attracting zombies to the house thing.)

    I wonder if obama cares that President Trump is undoing his 'accomplishments' in office?
    I feel certain that he must have some hatred toward President Trump but I hope he also wonders if what he did while in office was what was best for our country.
    Probably not.

    I loved the ******* logic of the CFL is better than a plane Jane bulb. A bulb made in China filled with toxic, bad for the environment gasses tossed into the trash is so much better than a regular bulb. Oh and by the way, the CFL sucks as far as longevity goes. Typical for chicom crap. So but only do we have toxic stuff being poured into the oceans, rivers and such in China, but you’re going to burn through and trash more bulbs at your house. That there is some super short bus logic.

    I like the LED bulbs but there are a couple of applications where an incandescent light is a good way to get a little bit of heat, say for keeping the pipes from freezing in the well house or for animals.

    I love freedom to choose --- over government mandate.

    But I like LED bulbs -

    I could see the issue when each LED bulb cost $10 and the claim they lasted for 12 years was more like 12 weeks (OK 24 weeks)

    My daughter has 6 lights in her upstairs bathroom - almost never used until recently - her son is now potty trained.

    They had six 60 watt incandescent bulbs - they swapped them out - using six "60" watt equivalent LEDs.

    The LED bulbs use 9 watts each so 54 total - less than one of the old bulbs.

    It also made the room feel not as hot.
    What is not to like?

    My view is ---

    If something is so good for everyone the government doesn't need to mandate it - people will do it on their own.

    Flip side is - if the government really needs to have a law that forces you to do something - then it can't be a good deal for you.

    Obamacare is a prime example.

    I like incandescent bulbs and I like LEDs. I value the freedom of choice.
