What percentage of lead would you like in your toy?
Almost any item I pick up and look at in my house was made or
is made in China.
Almost anything American’s buy these days whether it be toys, tools, household utensils, etc. it is usually made in China.
Now lead paint is found in artificial Christmas trees, Christmas ornaments, etc.
I know we have older items made in China with lead in them.
I would imagine the use of led in China has been going on for many years now.
All the huge companies like Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, will just continue to use China as their biggest supplier. Sure, these big profit pigs will take many an item off their shelves with apologies and all, but they will still use China as their main vain.
China’s labor and products are very cheap and rewarding for these big corporations.
Corporations biggest excuse is, they can’t buy or make products in America because of the high cost.
Our Government should bring high cost and taxes down, so people can work in America again.
Doctors, lawyers, hospitals, drug companies, etc, are the best at price gouging. Why can’t all this price madness be stopped?
The thing is, the whole world has got greedy. I want more and more. Buy cheap and sell at a very high price.
I talked with a man the other day. He told me for sure that he knows China uses raw sewer water to make their glue that is used to compress their plywood. Know wonder it smells so funny?
My Panasonic phone is made in Mexico, my T-Shirt is made in Honduras, and all my daughters Star Wars toys are made in China.
Someday believe it or not, new babies will have stamped on their new butts, “Born in China and Sold from China.”

|last year my 4th graders were shocked to realize we each were dressed in clothing made anywhere but in the US, we checked our labels, 1 child was clad in a shirt -textile us made, shirt made elsewhere,- the rest of us were all dressed in garment made out of us. kids asked, 'what about the people who used to make this stuff? where do they work now.' wish i had an answer for them.|

|Alas, our government and corporation are in the process of solving the cheap labor part. It won’t be long now before we are all working an 90 hour work week at seventy five cents an hour. Yes we’re finally catching up with the third world. That will solve the lead toy problem, too. After all, who can afford to buy toys at seventy five cent an hour. Then again, who could afford to have children. Nice article.|

|All the profiteers have gone to China and any other country where there is cheap labor. I just bought some energy efficient LED Christmas tree lights and noticed it had a warning on them that said they may have cancer causing agents in them and be sure to wash your hands after putting them up. Doesn't that just gall you. Soon cars will come on the market. Nothing like making our enemy stronger and see how they are building up their weapon systems and refusing 3 of our navy ships entry into their ports.The sketch drives home your point so well.|
