About 5 years ago I went online and bought a $20.00 LED flashlight from China or Japan!
This light came with its own rechargeable battery and the option of being able to replace that battery with 3 AAA batteries.
This light was extremely bright and was of better quality of any flashlight I could find on American shelves for under $80!
They also claimed that you could recharge this battery up to 500 times!
So, having been raised in America, where a claim like this would probably not be true, I decided to test this out!
2 years later I had almost reached 200 recharges when I lost the flashlight!
I hadn’t seen any diminishing quality in that battery with all those recharges!
I’ve bought several rechargeable LED flashlights in America, costing up to around $80. None of them got over 20-30 charges before they were experiencing some kind of problems with the battery or light itself.
These are low-quality rechargeable products being sold in America on purpose to keep the technology suppressed here! I will explain this in my next story.
Remember what our country stands for? Greed. And to see what companies will resort to for money might just make you a little sick.
About 40 years ago when I was around 10, I remember going into a store to buy some batteries for something. I remember finding regular batteries and also rechargeable ones that cost about twice the price.
Obviously, that within the past 40 years technology in America hasn’t advanced enough to create a far superior rechargeable battery, like the ones being sold in many other countries in place of disposable batteries!
I guess all those other countries just have far superior technology than we have here in America.
There is actually a couple of reasons why those countries have thrown out disposable batteries for rechargeable ones.
- Those countries care more about the environment than we do.
- Those countries have far more responsible governments than we do.
So, 2 very unethical battery companies (The bunny b!tches and the copper crappers) and 1 very sleazy US Government had to work together for decades to make this work out right!
None of these 3 cares about the environment whatsoever and all 3 are accomplices in ripping off the American people for decades!
You see, with our government it is always about finding ways to get us to spend more so that they get that much more in taxes.
Using my flashlight as an example:
- Taxes would have only been collected on the original $20 I spent for the flashlight.
- Taxes would have been collected on up to $1,500 worth of disposable batteries.
Our government would have had to keep out the competitors, from other countries, off of American shelves because this competition would have crushed these 2 companies with far superior products.
The 2 companies would have had to suppress technology in America for rechargeable batteries so that they could keep selling ‘Mountains’ worth of disposable batteries!
So, for decades our government and these 2 companies have worked together to rip off the American people, year after year, in the name of money!
I’ll tell you this. This is only a ‘drop in the bucket’ compared to all the other things they have been doing to take advantage of the American people!
I guess the only thing left to say here is, “How long are we going to let them keep trampling all over us before we decide to get up off our asses and do something about it?”
That question has remained unanswered for far too long!
Are we ready to start dismantling our thieving government?
