The poisoning of America's pet food

I know for me, when I am at home, my dog is like another member of my family. Not quite, human, but definately a being - definately someone to keep me company.

Now these chinese, with their cheap labor and lack of effective regulations on their industries, have put POISON in the food that ends up in the systems of pets just like mine. That bothers me. No, in fact that pisses me off. Not only do they steal American jobs, not only do they manipulate their currency, but now their products poison some of the most treasured pets of the American people. To who do we have recourse? NO ONE. Why? Because the things are made in China, and the Chinese government doesn't give two shits about the quality of their industries as long as they turn a profit.

The American gov't doesnt give two shits either because the Chinese are our most important trading partner.

you know what it is. Its the concept of 'free trade' borne out to its extent - the pursuit of the almighty dollar, damn everythin else that comes in that way
You know what, people should just stop buying stuff from any pet food company that gets some of their product from china.
That'll send a message.

It didn't even say on the cans that it came from China. All the cans I turned back in to PetsMart said it was a product of Canada. How are we supposed to know where this crap comes from?:mad:
