YES--I did mean to specify EARLY HARMAN's--I guess in my oldness, I forgot--"the mind is a terrible thing to misplace"
Yea... nobody's bashing early Harmon buyers or those who simply refuse to see the smoke N mirrors I clearly see (Im just one mans opinion so Im giving it) maybe im right, maybe im wrong about not wishing to take an American Industry and an American building block like Anthracite Coal and hand it over to the Chinese... their are indeed a lot of things we can no longer control or have "stake in", be it computer chips or rice and their are a lot of other things that we simply MUST have competitive prices for to live and their just no alternative left for us
BUT IM HERE TO TELL YOU... GOOD QUALITY AMERICAN COAL & WOOD BURNING STOVES ARE NOT ONE OF THEM! their IS EQUAL or BETTER quality for an EQUAL or BETTER price... so in my mind... its a No-Brainer!
Can You imagine the frustration from so many other companies to see the "glitter & tinsel" & "smoke & mirrors" selling like hotcakes for double the price, half the service and knowing its the largest Chinese conglomerate now trying to take over an industry that built America! ohhhh sure.... i know folks like Matt & Dave or Mike have to bite their tongues, but what I see is them pulling their hair out crying out WTF..."where here, we support you, we listen to you, we want to help you, we in fact ARE YOU! yet of the 2 million sold in USA over half are sold by one company with the money to advertise "Glitter", cheapen the product, raise the prices and give NOTHING after the purchase (who says money cant buy you everything
) ... well i dont have to bite my tongue...as they say "it is what it is".
