I wasn't aware how many US companies import food items from China to make their products.

Aside from food safety concerns and we have already seen the melamine stuff in pet food could this be a future vehicle for terrorist attack?  It would appear that the FDA is way over their heads and completely understaffed for this problem.

I just find it worrying that we imported $58m worth of hog guts, bladders and stomachs. Ick.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.
If you think Manziel is the best QB in this draft I can safely assume you are an idiot and will treat you as such.

I find it amazing how our current government is so set on "spreading democracy" and fighting "terrorists" but we have no problem supporting a communist country's economy.

Couple that with toxic chemicals in toothpaste they sell here and their recent testfire that destroyed a satellite in orbit. They have been winning an economic war with America for decades. We have to just hope they are satisfied with that and don't invade us and hang George Bush. Let me get back to you. I might have to rethink a few things here. I went to a Chinese buffet last night and haven't felt right all day.

Pretty funny last line!   I don't feel bad about Chinese Restaurants stateside but the grocery shelf thing is a bit disconcerting.
