Just when you thought China couldn’t top itself, they come through again. This time it’s tainted baby formula, responsible for killing several babies, and sickening scores of others.
This latest nightmare can be added to the long list of tainted and defective products, from pet food to seafood, to children’s toys to toothpaste to car tires-and the list goes on. Couple this with the fact that China holds an incredible amount of U.S. debt, and you have the makings of a global economy that would make AIG proud.
The next president, whoever it is, will have quite a mess to contend with. They, as all candidates do, promise many things, but deliver on very little. When was the last time a campaign promise was fulfilled? It must have happened sometime in history, but normally, there’s always some crisis that comes up that changes the plan. Yeah, that’s it, there was a crisis that changed the plan. Luckily for the next president, there is a built-in crisis that gives him a ready made excuse for not accomplishing a thing in the interest of the American people.
Bad baby food? oh well, the FDA is overwhelmed. AIG needs bailing out? Well, uh, just make sure mom and pop are still covered (as if only AIG can provide insurance BHO). Hey John, you’ll “cut taxes where you can”? Well, you cannot now, can you?
Poisoned, pilfered and patronized. When will America finally care enough to finally give a flying ****.
