They could just relabel them Floating Eyeball My Little Hand Grenades.
So why don't we just poison all the goods we send to China? Oh yeah....
We could poison our universities.
Just noticed that little tidbit...
This is what happens when you outsource to the lowest bidder in a corrupt country with essentially no sense of safety. And, in the mean time American craftsmanship is suffers.
Does anyone remember; “Look for the union label…”
agreed, however, as americans we dont want to pay the higher costs of goods made here. Look at walmart!!! almost all the crap in their stores is made in some third world asian country most americans dont even know where onthe map it even is!!!!
hmm. I wonder if this means I should take back my Laotian Lawn Darts.
My nephew has hundreds of Thomas the Train toys, spread over three houses. So far I know at my mother's house, she found 3 of the trains, that need to be sent back. I would rather take all the trains and start throwing them at the Chinese embassy.
Why has this just recently become a problem/phenomenon with the chinks?!
These stupid little trains
The antifreeze in the mouthwash
The toothpaste in the shady bodegas
And that dog/cat food scare
Time to cut back on the federal aid a 'lil, ya think?!
They make up such a huge % of the 3rd world type products we get though, so it's hard to tell if China is really any more wreckless than all the other 3rd world industrial countries.
you sir are my hero
After WW2 this country manufactured 40% of the worlds goods whil having 6% of the worlds population. What the hell happened?
My buddy is a tool and die maker... well actually now he sources automotive molds... he can get 3 made in China cheaper then he can get one made here (being US and Canada)... so even if the Chinese mold craps out... he has two spares available... when he was on the shop floor... actually making molds... his compatriots were well European... meaning Swiss, German, Austrian, Hungarian etc... in those countries that "trade" was looked upon highly. Not here though... here it is considered a "blue collar" job...
He did mention he went to a small shop in China, that had 10 000 workers, they get paid like a buck twenty five an hour doing whatever... the really scary thing is he went to a plant and asked why the smoke stacks were spewing white smoke... and asked what fuel they are using... the guy replied kerosene... gah.
Oh one other charming fact is that the Chinese middle class is starting to buy cars now (typically SUVs etc)... and China still uses leaded gasoline.
Again this is why I moved to Maine
