Children's Jewelry

Well since the Chinese can't put lead in jewelry seems they've gone to cadmium.

Toxic metal found in kids jewelry very dangerous - Road Runner

Another reason we need not to be getting stuff from china

They go to whatever lengths to produce cheap goods that they know the rest of the world will purchase from them for its low cost. Reality is unfortunately almost everything is made there, including the American and Australian flags we may so proudly wave...

That is the shortest sentence I've seen you produce on this forum... and I didn't understand it.

Oh, right. America again. It's a pop culture reference from a schlocky anti-drug ad from the Eighties.

Subject of much memeage and sarcasm. I forget you're new here, sometimes.

Gotcha, all we had was Big Brother watching and that was only in 1984.

You'll soon know Gary.
Little girls like to play dress ups and are fascinated by adult things such as jewellery, cooking and handbags. All without instruction - they just pick it up and emulate.

China makes the shittiest shit on the planet, yet everyone buys it. Consumer hunger is more powerful than intelligent decision making...human nature.

Kinda like boys and weapons. Doesn't matter how much you shield your precious male offspring from images of violence, the first time he goes outside and finds a stick, it WILL become a weapon.

Cowboys and Indians. Cops and Robbers. Do any of the men on here remember playing those games? I sure do and I really don't want to rob a bank. Too much PC crap.

Gooshin... Canada is a part of this too. Easy to hurl stones, and back them with facts.

Canada’s total merchandise trade with China has soared in the last decade, reaching $42.1 billion in 2006 and accounting for 5.0% of Canada's world trade.

1. In 1997, China was Canada’s fourth largest trading partner with total merchandise trade of $8.7 billion. By 2003, the country had emerged as Canada’s second largest trading partner surpassing the U.K. and Japan.

2. Imports from China were five times higher in 2006 than in 1997 while exports to the country tripled. Canada's Trade with China: 1997 to 2006

Go ahead an look up the US numbers. They ARE higher. But at $42.1 Billion (more now) and climbing FAST, you certainly have no moral/ethical standing to take this position.

To each according to his abilities... China is your second largest partner... The fact that you all have less money to spend is hardly the issue. Clearly you all CHOOSE to help with China's emergence pretty much to the very best of your abilities.

That makes you complicit. Why don't you do something about it as opposed to telling us what we need to do. As for me, I AM doing something about it and buying Canadian whenever I can. Heh.

sure
