The wonderful fruits of "free trade" and anti-regulation

Every day we're treated to new news items about discoveries of new food items imported from China containing highly dangerous drugs (such as antibiotics), pesticides, and other chemicals toxic to human health. The latest is farm-raised catfish containing several of these that have serious conseqences for human health, including (according to a report today on "The Loud Dobbs Report") cancer, liver and kidney failure.

The FDA is asleep at the switch, as directed by the Bush administration.

The maleovolent negligence of this speaks for itself.

Why are the bees dying? The best candidate, according to a report on "360" is a new pesticide introduced within the last few years. And which administration was in charge? Bees are essential to 40% of our food crops and they are dying out at an alarming rate.

I hope the shareholders in imported Chinese food and pesticide companies are happy. They might be able to buy a yacht soon and enjoy themselves before they and their children die of god- knows-what affliction.

This is unreal.

I mean it should be the stuff of nightmares, not reality.

January 21, 2009 might be too late, but it can't come too soon.

If people would wake up, these eveildoers would be impeached.
