Buy Chineses products... die a horrible death?

First, the tainted pet food fiasco. Then, the antifreeze toothpaste ordeal.

What have those crazy chinese manufacturers got in store for us next, all in the name of saving a buck?

Over ten million children's toys, distributed separately by both Mattel and Fisher-Price, have been recalled due to excessive amounts of low-cost lead paint. Fatal if ingested, but hey, it's not like preschool kids ever suck on their toys or anything, is it?

Still more Chinese toys have been included in the recall because they contain magnets that have not been properly sealed(effective glue costs money, after all) and can kill your child via intestinal perferations if swallowed. At least one U.S. child has died because of this and about 20 others have needed surgery to save them.

How are the manufacturing execs reacting to this? Well...

Honestly...there are about 3 BILLION people too many on the planet. Let the Chinese thin the herd.

Sorry about my negativity, but with my impending surgery on my drawing hand tomorrow, and an old friend of mine ate a bullet this morning, not really the most positive person right now.

I read a great article about this the other day. They were pointing out that while China's current problems are certainly dangerous, it's typical of where they are industrially. America went through the same thing for it's first 130 years or so of existance. American products were made so shoddily and dangerously that buying manufactured goods was considered to be a downright lethal idea. After it became enough of an issue, the current organizations that we trust to enforce standards for foods and products were finally established.

If this kind of thing continues, I can imagine the same thing happening in China.

OK then, I won't remind you that these are kids toys.

Sorry to hear about your friend.

Of course, America had the advantage of not being a single-party Communist Republic.;)
