Last night's debate reveal a number of things.
1. John MCCain is a snide sarcastic and angry old man.
2. Barack Obama workls wqell under pressure, sounds statesman like and has a very good grasp of the facts when it comes to economics and foreign policy.
This was supposed to be MCCain's debate since he is supposed to have 25 yrs experience in foreign affairs, etc. It wasn't.
Because of that, no matter how equal the spin meisters want to paint it, if they were equal or there was no clewar cut winner, then Obama took it.
Product recalls: sliced bamboo shoots
By The Associated Press Fri Sep 26, 2:45 PM ET
The following recall has been announced:
• Lion Pavilion Ltd. is recalling Yulanpian Brand Dried Slices of Tender Bamboo Shoots because the product contains undeclared sulfites, which could cause a severe or life-threatening reaction in people who have sulfite allergies. No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported, according to the New York company. The product, distributed nationwide and produced in China, was sold in 230-gram clear plastic packages with the code 2008.1.3. For more information, consumers can call 718-384-6951.
Ok, first it was lead in our children's toys, they contaminated dog food, contaminated baby formula, contaminated milk, and now even our bamboo shoots aren't safe.
So why hasn't the Chinese influx of market items been squeezed off until we can take a close look at the situation and make an educated decision on what products we want to continue importing and what products we need to quit importing.
Well, the reason is that all the money that the corpo-fascist republicans are spending like manic shoppers the day after Thanksgiving is being fronted to the US gov't in the form of loans from the Chinese gov't. Yes, the biggest holder of American debt is the Chinese gov't. So get used to tainted products and such.
I'm surprised the Chinese aren't going into space using American technology and equipment instead of Russian technology and equipment. Aw hell, why don't we just give them a Space Shuttle and a piece of the Cape and lettem be space heros. We aint gonna be using them much longer anyway after we revert back to 1960s technology.
If you buy Chinese products, especially food products, you're fucking crazy. Check the labels on your canned goods and frozen items. . . shrimp, fish, veggies, you name it, it's coming from China these days. Let your retailers know that you don't want Chinese products at this point in time.
Wal-Mart makes it's gazillions by selling such cheap, not-for-shit items.
