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 , 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.
poison in wheat gluten from china sold to manufacturers of pet food. Thousands of pets die
tainted pharmaceuticals from china sold to us. Cancer meds, blood thinners...some medicines were actually fake
Tainted products for baby formula manufacture imported to U.S. from china. Babies in China die and over 1,000 hospitalized, 53,000 ill.
Global recalls of products made with the Chinese toxic milk - suspected=Oreo cookies, Snickers bars and M&M chocolate candies, yogurt, rice balls.. Only a few brands found poisoned in U.S..
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.
