Chinese Junk!

Not to get too political, but we need to wean ourselves off of this cheap, Chinese garbage! Poisoned pet food, counterfeit toothpaste, and now lead-tainted Thomas the Train toys . It's enough! We need to start making these products in the United States again and paying a few dollars more.

Am I being paranoid or is there terrorist potential here as well???

More on Reuters...

P.S. It's interesting to note how many articles fail to mention this junk is made in China! Maybe some of those conservative talk show hosts are right about a massive, left wing media conspiracy... Of course, President Bush and his cohorts are notoriously in favor of cheap, overseas labor so I am not sure how to interpret it.

It's not Thomas the Train, you moron! It's Thomas the Tank Engine! You should fire your fact checker.

It's a Chinese world - we're just living in it.

Dolf Nader - I like that. Saw Ralph in the flesh walking out of a hotel a few weeks ago. He looked tired and sad.
