Kids Sucking Lead

“Sarge” may look innocent enough, but this popular toy is one of many covered in harmful, lead-based paint.

The toy scandal continues as it is being revealed today that the recall has been expanded to 9 million toys.

On a political note, I believe this is what you get with unchecked Capitalism — the kind supported by the Bush administration and Republicans. Democrats and progressives prefer that there is some governmental check in place to prevent toys coated with lead-based paint from getting into our kids’ mouths. We understand that corporations by their nature are profit driven and, in this modern age, short-term profits in particular. The incentives to cheat are ever present and safety regulations are a necessity.

Interestingly, the CNN report does not refer to any governmental action being taken to determine the actual breadth of the problem. Apparently, Bush vacations while our kids suck lead.

  1. Sorry Mac, but I have been playing around with some image coding options on your post. Hope you don’t mind.

    I’ve been using this post to explore those options as well. Exploring how to post images with text placement.

    Hope I haven’t stepped on your toes.

  4. Also, make sure you work in the code tab or you will get some odd HTML tags that don’t belong.

    Thanks. I’ll probably play around with 2night to make sure I get the hang of it.

    Make sure you get those Barbies and Polly Pockets away from your kid.

  6. I emailed the both of you the instructions. By the way, reply back and let me know what email address (if any) you would like me to add to this page
