    Why no Red Vines black licorice at Walmart? -Too much lead. … ice-recall

    Suspect lot has much as 0.33 parts per million of lead & could result in up to 13.2 micrograms of lead per serving. Children under 6 should not consume more than 6.0 micrograms of lead per day "

    I thought children shouldn't be having any lead at all. And why is there always a recall every few years on licorice? In 2010 it was red licorice.

    Because Halloween is coming up, it seems to be hot trend to write about. I figured Red Vines Brand is made in China but when trying to google it I get a bunch of smirky 'news' article about the recall.

    "I'm the Chinese gangster of Red Vines & Candy Corn Oreos."

    From Caity Weaver; "Black licorice is a decorative material, the primary purpose of which is to create dark and winding roads leading up to gingerbread homes at Christmastime. Sadly, millions of Americans accidentally ingest it each year."

    I think China adds lead to candles, candy & toys as a bio-terror subversive act to weaken our children and maybe it's not that funny.


    I got that 'bio-terror subversive act' saying when I was watching about Russia's drug problem along the Kazakhstan border. This drug is  called 'Crocodile' because that is what you skin ends up is a misnomer - it's a whole like worse then just dry rough skin.

    I just did the licorice thing to segue into the video that almost made me faint (literally) from shock.
    It's gruesome and would make a real scare straight from drugs during the Halloween season. Because in this world - we have real scary monsters and people out there.

      I have a theory about this. I remember reading that the communist system leads to sloppy work. This book was written before China introduced elements of capitalism in certain zones within the country to pick up its then weak economy.  What was happening was, in China everyone was guaranteed a job, even if the person could not choose the job. So for example, if his job was to package bananas, he would just dump them in the box without doing it in a certain way that preserves the freshness of the bananas for a longer time. He did this because he knew he would be paid, anyway. So as a result, there were a lot of rotten bananas.

      I think shortcuts like these that have been coming from China are an offshoot of a mode of thinking that emanated from the communist system.

      In my personal experience, I had been to Hongkong when it was under the British, and when it was returned to the Chinese. In the latter case, I experienced rudeness from waitresses in the restaurant of our hotel that is so unacceptable in the hospitality industry.  I suspected she came from the mainland, and so she behaved in the only way she knew./

        That's one of the most interesting things I've read for a while.   I think you've made a great point about the consequences of communism/socialism..

          Thank you, Brenda. But there is a huge difference between communism and socialism. In the latter case, you can choose your job, so you have passion for your work and naturally want to do it well. Socialism permits certain benefits, like health benefits. An interesting development in Spain, to cut costs for its flagging economy, a sector of people were denied free health care despite the socialist system. Despite this, some doctors insisted on treating this sector for free, in the belief that health is a human right. So communism kills the spirit, socialism preserves it.
