It seems like there has been alot of products coming from China being recalled. Toys with lead, peanut butter, hot dog chili sauce, all that dog food and cat food a few months ago, and just tonight on the news their are bunch of cell phone batteries from China that are recalled.


And it seems like they are all coming from China! Maybe it's time to stop.... Trading with China?

Discuss.

In other news, there was a Mafia hit on five Italians in Germany, Duisburg(SP?) where I had just been visiting. :O

China's trying to poison us.

Wait, I think what we are all missing is this: EVERYTHING is made in china. Everything.

Of course it' gonna be from China, they must manufacture 95% of our ****.

So yeah, false alarm.

But what happened to bird flu? It was a huge media storm, then one day it just went away. What hapened? Is it gone?

theyre standards are lower. they have more people, so it takes longer for a large enough percent of them dying before they realize that theyre products are ****ed up

What happened to bird flu is what will happen to "global warming".

Culture of fear. China is enroute to surpass the US as the most powerful nation in the world. Thus begins the propaganda.

Globl warming is here to stay.It's been with us for a while, and I don't think it's gonna leave.

It may actually be happening, I'm unsure. There is pretty good evidence for it. (Decline in the number of pirates, for example.)

Problem is, all the things the regular joe knows about globabl warming are just the petty facts the government puts out to make people feel at ease about it. Car C02 emissions, recycling... None of these things will help, and most of the damage is done by industry. Look at a power station pouring out smoke, compared to a car with a catalytic converter. They are just trying to blind us.

I always thought that wouldn't it hurt their economy if we know they are screwing up their products?


I mean, people are starting to boycott products from China. How are they going to be so successful if they are poisoning their products?

How are the recalls of bad food products from China propaganda?


Because they're blowing them out of proportion in an attempt to demonize the Chinese.

But yeah, as Vermentide said.

Does American polotics only have a far left and far right group then? That seems a little... Gay....

I mean, don't you have other parties? Or are they just too insignificant to care about?

There's such a thing as a moderate Democrat or a liberal Republican. They don't all have the same stance on every issue.

But if you have to vote only either way, it's a very restricted choice. If the other parties (independant?) are too small to make an impact, it's a wasted vote, essentially.

Blah, politics really isn't my strong point. It's not real life enough, it's a load of self indulgent intellectual wank, using big, self important words to make petty issues seem major, and very rarely sonfronts any real problems.

Well he is going to lose probably, but I wish he wouldn't.



I don't like him. My parents and pretty much the rest of my family worship the guy.


Though I guess I wouldn't mind if he was elected. There are things about him I like.

Yeah, except Bird Flu actually existed.

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools
