Rat Poison to Blame for Pet Food Contamination
How, you might ask, could such a thing happen?
Because, yet again, in an effort to make LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY, big business (and you can see how fucking big it is by how many foods are poisoned) is going to CHINA.
A source close to the investigation tells ABC News that the rodenticide, which the source says is illegal to use in the United States, was on wheat that was imported from China and used by Menu Foods in nearly 100 brands of dog and cat food.
Oh, and don’t forget, the Chinese gov’t is financing our war in Iraq. You know, buying all those bonds that Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld and the rest of the evildoers in Washington don’t want us to think about. The country holding by far the most U.S. debt is Japan which held $644.3 billion at the end of December 2006. In recent years the People’s Republic of China has also become a holder of over $1 trillion in total foreign reserves, of which about $349.6 billion are U.S. Treasury securities.
Read it and weep people. And while you’re at it, keep shopping with one of the biggest offenders.
China owns us.
Sleep well tonight.

How long before they just break up the country and sell it off for parts, do you think?
Oh heavens – not to worry about the Iraq war – that’ll be financed by the Iraqi oil. NOT.

Has anyone mentioned which business in China sold the toxic wheat to the U.S.? Afterall, most of our imports from China are sold to us by U.S. multinationals who offhsore there.
That’s an excellent point, and I wonder if we’ll find that out for sure, or if the true ownership will be covered in veils.
But the treasury securities? That’s the Chinese gov’t.
…and what say you about a Canadian company that does not quality control its ingredients?
BTW, I hope you visit China soon, so that you can get a lovely picture of the place. I found it fascinating.
Oh, well, you’ve got me there. I’ve had a LOT to say about it but not here in my blog. As for China, I know it’s a wonderful place to visit. A friend of mine took a 32-day tour and wrote about it and it sounded really terrific, as a tourist destination. My problem with China is strictly with how big business (multinational, I’m sure) is using Chinese labor. I feel like some sort of an old fogey reactionary, but I do my best to buy American, or at least buy Western Hemisphere or European.
Oh, and also, how China is buying up our debt. That’s scary.
