8 Food frauds on your shopping list - Yahoo! Shopping (http://shopping.yahoo.com/articles/yshoppingarticles/880/8-food-frauds-on-your-shopping-list/ - broken link)

DECKER & TRIPLETT: China's poisonous exports - Washington Times

The more I read of the posts within this specific forum, the more apparent it is that those of wealth and 'power' do not care for the well being of the American people.

Seems we're now the home of the greedy. Land of the needy. There is no in-between anymore.

The unappreciative nature in which the American worker has been shown (especially in the last twelve years) is more than disheartening. It's detrimental. Obviously, however, the amount of excess money in some peoples pocket is more so.

We're owed our jobs, lives and safety back. Wake up.

My comment on the Green Living thread on Biopiracy.

My thought for the day, week, month, year, decade or forever:

"This is just the tip of the iceberg. All the rest of big anything does the same. Why bother with elections? Just let the corporations run the government for the profit of the really rich. All we have to do is keep sending them our tax money and spend the rest of it on crap that will kill us.

MAMMON rules all so why bother."

China, in the dark recess of the minds of their leadership and lower elite...If they could press a button and make America disappear they would. These are not your friends..They look on AMERICA and England with quiet loathing and contempt.

They are not like us forgive and forget types..They hold a grudge for generations..they will never forget the fact that our and the British elite...made their wealth by addicting millions to opium...poisoning their best...and destroying their best through dope..Hence killing a lot of potential brain power that opened the door to communism and todays slavery - that is China today.


Whether it is poison product in the form of goods- being exported or as an incident that got buried by the press...........................when a few years ago....a container arrived from CHINA containing 30 million dozes of Ecstacy...that brain dehydrating designer drug that wrecks the potential of our youth.


What was a disgrace -was the fact that CANADIAN authorities who seized this shipment ...said only one thing to media..."the origin of the container was China...and that was it- Not even a letter of reprimand.


I would say that they did not want to ruffle any feathers and the tiny few that benefit from trade ...don't give a damn if China harms the common westerner...as long as they profit.

My point exactly. And as the poster above you stated "MAMMON rules". So good luck to us all.

Yeah, we can make an additional $1.00 annually, if we just add a little more water to this apple juice.

It is clear, all the wealthy and powerful want to do is steal all of your money and then kill you. We need to begin seizing their assets and then throw them into prison for their crimes against humanity. We need to begin arresting all of the bankers and throwing them into small prison cells where they will watch us sell their assets to pay for the money they stole from the people of the USA.

Do your part and don't just rely on government to solve this problem.

Read those labels! Sniff it, feel it, look at it. If it doesn't look right or the label indicates a foreign source, put it back on the shelf. More importantly, take a few moments to tell management, the manufacturer and the retailer why you won't buy it. The more they hear from us, the more it will change.

Don't think so? Go to Walmart and just spend a few minutes looking at labels in different departments. More and more American made goods are showing up because they've heard from their customers. Bringing American jobs back from overseas is happening and it's because consumers have had enough of it. Heck, it even has a name: In-Sourcing.

Excellent advice from stillkit. Take the time to look and buy American whenever possible even if it costs a bit more.

Buy local, grown your own, befriend your local farmers and producers. Demand country of origin labels for vitamin and supplements. Demand GMO labeling.Consumers demanded Country of Origin labels for produce and got results.

90% of all Vitamin C supplements are from China.
