This is NOT funny anymore, the growing number of toys being recalled that were made in Lead-Based China. These lists of bad toys represent about half of The Princess’

    Maybe now that you had two blog posts in a row without calling someone a “Bubba”, your karma will flow positive and the universe will re-balance without having to throw out any more children’s toys.

    And congrats on that woman blogger thing.

    Was it funny to begin with? And…what does this have to do with Georgia? Oh, because your daughter lives in Georgia. Got it (grin).

    Icarus: Too bad I won’t be around long enough to savor the love. I’m about gasping for breath on the floor now that you said something mildly nice to me.

    And Rogue, does Erick get the same treatment from you every time he posts, say, hilarious video clips about random petty crime in beauty parlors in other states? You ‘fess up you hear, boy.

    Hey,

    with the exception of not wanting to defend the distribution of historically accurate porn to first graders, I think I’ve usually been on your side. Or as much as a Republican can be on your side, anyway.

    Hope you don’t have to call 911 though. I don’t remember the response time in Underwood Hills being particularly impressive.

    so am i like suppose to go through all my kids toys and figure out if they are “bad” or not wouldn’t be easier to just have them not chew on any of them?

    This is why all of you who think we have free trade with China have been fooled. Our trade deal is based on having a blind eye to child & slave labor, no real legal system, health & Safety standards

    I don’t think people realize that a lot of this is intentional. The pet food thing happened because a Chinese company decided to add a known poison to processed grain so that it would test higher for gluten, because it was below spec. So, they had the brilliant idea to spike it with a toxin so that they could sell it.

    In other words, they decided to knowingly risk the lives of American pets, and maybe even Americans, to sell a batch of protein. Makes one wonder what other shortcuts the Chinese take in order to undercut our native industry.

    You better not forget your tooth paste if you travel!

    AP-Chinese-made hotel toothpaste recalled

    Toxic chemical found in complimentary tubes distributed worldwide

    INDIANAPOLIS – A chemical that thickens antifreeze has turned up again in a Chinese-made toothpaste, this time under a brand that serves luxury hotels around the world.

    What about just handling a lead-based product? My child is well beyond the chewing-on-product phase, but handles all this Dora and Polly Pocket stuff on a daily basis.

    I don’t even want to think about what’s in their Barbie or Sponge Bob toothpaste. I’m going to go see where that stuff comes from now.

    We’ve sent three toys back with this latest round (and two jars of peanut butter….wait, those were home grown right here in Ga.)
    We cannot blame the Chinese on this one. We let this crap in. Our standards in the past have been very high, but recently we’ve been lax. Batches of these toys need to be tested before they come here. We cannot just assume because we have eliminated lead paint from most of our memory that it does not exist elsewhere.

    We are buying steel from China…y’all read about what happened to their new bridge? OK, the I35 bridge was 40 years old and not maintained; China’s bridge crumbled during construction. We have got to have that stuff checked out.

    When I was a kid (1950s), we knew that if it said “Maade in China”, it was crap that wouldn’t last a day. What is different today?
