    America's Real Criminal Element: Lead | Mother Jones
    How many years ago was it that the US started getting rid of lead?

    Now, check out the first item below.

    This isn't rocket surgery, as they say. We cannot afford to keep going backward just because the Rs want it.

    It's hardly fair to compare Ron Paul to other Rs. The right wing hates him too.

    As for this bill, it's trying to fix a problem that we ourselves created. The overwhelming majority of these lead infested toys are all from China. We never had this problem until we started importing most of our products from China. How about we stop importing from them until they, at least, stop trying to poison us. I would actually prefer if we brought those manufacturing jobs back here, but that has little to no chance of happening.

    I don't see anything wrong with that voting record. I'm sure most don't.

    Not all trade, just blacklist manufacturers who use harmful materials and refuse to comply with US standards.

    On topic though, I agree with Ron Paul that simply doubling the size and budget of the Consumer Safety Protections Commission isn't the right way to solve the problem.

    Just a note for the op, are you aware that Dr. Paul retired? You might want to talk to a doctor about you obsessive compulsive behavior, I'm not sure it's healthy.

    Luddy, so you're telling us you regret growing up on a diet of PaintChip Flakes?
