I’ve been looking through newspaper files, focusing on events on the front page, to see what my great uncle was seeing and reading while living in Seattle in 1940. The war was on, but America was not yet directly involved in the hostilities.
The place is “a little strange,” she says. I wonder if she’s been arrested yet.
There’s so much graft and corruption and greed in China. There was the melamin in pet food. There was junk in baby formula.
I wouldn’t be surprised if some are dumping their industrial waste into products they export to America. I remember from years back the toxic smell leaching from the black plastic cases of the cheap DVDs at the dollar store.
Because of these problems and lax enforcement of food safety and other regulations, I fully support ending free trade with China. It’s past time to begin placing tariffs on certain imports and banning others altogether.
