Screwed Again!

Thanks to our government trade deals with a corrupt China who hates our guts, our citizens have been royally screwed again. How many more tainted or poisonous products have been foisted off on Americans through the crooked trade deals? How many more victims of catastrophes will be found to be affected and suffer even more? How much of new construction will be found to have used poison products from China? And why in blazes does our government allow this crappy trade to continue with trade deals from a nation even more corrupt than ours?

From China we've been sold poison pet food, poisoned candy, bad pharmaceutical products, etc. Yet trade with China continues. WHY? Our government panders to businesses. Greed rules.

Tainted Chinese drywall shows up in Katrina homes


CHALMETTE, La. – Thomas Stone and his wife rebuilt after their home was flooded by six feet of water during Hurricane Katrina, never dreaming they would face the agony of tearing it apart all over again.

They tapped Lauren Stone's 401(k) retirement savings and saved $1,000 by installing Chinese-made drywall throughout their two-story home. Now the Stones are among hundreds of Katrina victims facing another, this time unnatural, disaster.

Sulfur-emitting wallboard from China is wreaking havoc in homes, charring electrical wires, eating away at jewelry, silverware and other valuables, and possibly even sickening families.

"The bathroom upstairs has a corroded shower-head, the door hinges are rusting out," said 50-year-old Thomas Stone, the longtime fire chief of St. Bernard Parish, outside New Orleans. And then there's the stench, like rotten eggs, that seems to get worse with the heat and humidity.

"It makes me wish there would be another flood to wash it out," said his wife Lauren, 49.

Chinese manufacturers flooded the U.S. market with more than 500 million pounds of drywall around the same time Katrina was flooding New Orleans, an Associated Press review of shipping records has found.

The rest of this scandal is found HERE. Read it and get pissed.

A FEW OTHER POISONINGS:

Chinese substituted poisonous chemical for safe glue in manufacturing toys-"the (toys) contained an adhesive solvent called "1,4 butylene glycol," which can simulate the so-called date-rape drug gamma hydroxy butyrate when ingested, causing seizures, coma or death. Cake decorations were also poisoned.

The orders add to the lengthening list of recent U.S. government actions to ban, recall or restrict Chinese imports _ from juice to toothpaste _ because they are suspected of containing high levels of toxins.

Unfortunately, the list goes on and on. In view of the history of Chinese imports, why do our businesses continue to import manufactured goods and manufacturing supplies from China? GREED! Cheaper to buy, more profits to sell. And to hell with the American consumer.

Our government screws us in more ways than by allowing trade partners to sell us inferior, dangerous or even deadly products. In the first place they offshored so much manufacturing and other businesses that reduced the enterprises here and caused Americans workers to lose their jobs.

American businesses in turn ordered materials for their manufacturing plants from foreigners, since the American plants that previously made those materials were out of business. Or they ordered finished products from foreign manufacturers because they could get them cheaper and so making their profits bigger when they sold them here.

Our government, partly thanks to Bush and his "destroy America, make the rich richer policies", makes these trade deals to kiss up to business and screw the American public. Like you said, greed rules.

Is America burning?
Heck, all humans ARE burning; respiration is a form of internal combustion.

Here's some Atheist humor that burns some folk up.

Hello, Tor. Thank you for visiting us and leaving your comment. You are correct that respiration is a form of internal combustion.Fortunately for us, we do not usually destruct as a result and are able to continue our lives in the manner to which we are accustomed (barring unforeseen circumstances). If the burning (destruction) of America as we know it occurs, our lives will be drastically changed and the future of our country and our way of life will be negatively altered.
I have posted the video you suggested. Again, you are right--that will piss a lot of people off, especially the Fundies and the more rabid members of other religions. Hmmm! You're not acquainted with Dan'l, are you? :-)

China is dumping their inferior products on us, and daring us to say a word.

"Yet trade with China continues. WHY?"Because China owns us, lock, stock, and barrel.
