Those Chinese, Some Hot Shots…Ancient Chinese Secret?

Updated on September 25, 2008

Well now the Chinese have poisoned some Canadians with their candy. What's it going to take people? Honestly, first the lead toys to the US, baby formula and now poisoning Canada candy? Those Chinese, Some Hot Shots...Ancient Chinese Secret? - Don't Get Me Started!

I'm not saying that they're sitting around China trying to figure out what and who to poison next but come on kids, don't you think it's just a little too coincidental that everything that is coming out of that place is cheaper and tainted?

And does it seem odd that they seem to be targeting children? (Okay, I know some of you are thinking that I'm way off base on this one but think about it for a second) I mean, I don't like screaming kids on a flight with me but that doesn't make me want to poison them. Could the Chinese have some long range plan in mind where they're going to make the next generation so much weaker that they'll be able to thumb wrestle us and win every time, taking over our countries? And what of their own children and what they're doing to them? Anyone watch the Olympics?

The Olympics seemed to make everyone see China with gold covered glasses (most likely covered in lead). But come on, from the dancer who fell rehearsing the opening ceremony and was paralyzed but no one was supposed to know about it, the girl who wasn't "pretty" enough to lip sync to her own voice in those same ceremonies and the six year olds they passed off for female gymnasts I hardly think that the Chinese are some great humanitarians! Wake up people! And what about their pollution during the Olympics and how they basically used a "green screen" to get rid of the smog before it was shot by the world wide press? Something is going on and it's about time we found out about those "ancient Chinese secrets" don't ya think?

Pardon me for my Yankee Doodle Dandy showing but when we sent all of the American jobs over to China where they could beat the crap out of people to work for less than a decent wage in not such swell conditions did we really think they weren't going to spit in our food? It's like being nasty to a waiter kids, it never works out me I've worked in restaurants. So here we are in a crisis in America with people losing their jobs left and right and their homes while China sends in cheap crap to kill us, nice.

I guess the big question is how much more poison we're willing to take? (A question most celebrities only have to answer about their foreheads and the botox they inject) Is no one going to try and regulate what is coming out of this country? Shouldn't someone be doing something? Those Chinese, Some Hot Shots...Ancient Chinese Secret? - Don't Get Me Started!

      Over the past year, I've made a conscientious attempt to not buy anything made it China, but it seems like the only option at times because of how dependent we've become on their exports. It's a shame that this was all done to save some $ through cheap labor and horrendous working conditions and now we're starting to feel the repercussions of greedy, unsustainable practices that valued monetary gain over human rights and environmental integrity.

      This is a great hub, although I think it's important to avoid using generalized statements about "the Chinese." I imagine that most of the 6 billion people living in China are not responsible for the actions of their government and a handful of corporations, and much of the blame could rightly be placed on U.S. interests.
