Some days it seems there is a ‘grand plan’ or something…..

Cruising the InnerTubes I came across this post at Crooks and Liars:

CPSC Head and Toy Industry In Bed While Our Kids Suck Lead

Yet another example of BushCo. dismantling our government’s ability to protect us from the tender mercy’s of ‘business as usual’ in ‘Amerikkka the Free’. So friggin’ what you ask.

Well….

It turns out that the author of our upcoming book event ‘Exposed: The Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Products and What’s at Stake for American Power’ Mark Shapiro had something to say about this agency. Did you know that it’s the only agency which has any say over the safety of your kid’s toys?

No?

Well then, did you know that the EU and much of the rest of the world has banned the presence of lead and a list of other toxic chemicals in kid’s toys?

No?

Well then, did you know that toy manufacturers, both here and in China, make toys exclusively for sale in the United States that contain lead and other toxins while manufacturing toys without lead and other toxic chemicals for sale exclusively outside the United States?

No?

Imagine that. Also, if your child is sucking on a soft plastic toy or your wife or girlfriend uses makeup I recommend you stay tuned. Mr. Shapiro has loooooooooooots more eye-openers for ya.

We’re working on having him meet with us in January. I’ll be blogging on his book between now and then.

    Hi there,

    I stumbled upon your blog and was struck by the sentence “if your child is sucking on a soft plastic toy or your wife or girlfriend uses makeup I recommend you stay tuned.” Are you addressing only men? “Your” in your sentence refers only to men. (your wife or girlfriend) what if you yourself wear makeup.

    just thought I’d point out this strange glitch.
