    Default People's Daily Blasts Wal-Mart, Again

    People's Daily, the official newspaper of the Communist
    Party of China, once again blasts Wal-Mart in an article
    titled "Why Wal-Mart dares to sell diseased pork in China".

    http://english.people.com.cn/90882/7872792.html

    "For a long time, Chinese consumers have had the impression
    that all products of foreign world-famous companies are 'good
    stuff' and 'of high quality', and are expensive for a reason."

    Seems to me that China should be a little more concerned about what
    kinds of poison they are adding to milk, formula, and pet food.

    You don't understand that graft and corruption is a way of life there.
    Everyone takes their cut and substitutes a cheaper product for what
    was contracted... it gets cheaper and cheaper as it filters down the
    layers. They are very good at showing observers what they expect to
    see and good at coaching workers about what to say, so everything is
    hunky dory when a foreign contractor company executive makes a walk
    through "inspection".

    None of that excuses Walmart for selling diseased pork in China.

    I had a cup of Maxwell House coffee today. I persuaded the hostess to
    make it extra-strong. Then I found out she bought the coffee at
    walnart, Should I be worried about poisoned coffee? I'm pretty sure
    there's no coffee grown in China, but when it comes to walmart, better
    to worry, knuwhymean?

    YES! Absolutely agree. I will never forgive that country for what they did
    to our cat food a couple years ago.

    If I remember correctly, a couple thousand dogs and cats died eating
    the tainted pet food here in the US, and there was some sort of class
    action lawsuit against the company in China that produced it. I know
    that company shelled out a settlement to the pet owners.

    I'm well aware of rBGH, it along with breeding 5gal/day cows are largely
    responsible for the flavorless butter and sour cream these days. I am
    not aware of any credible research indicating any health safety issues
    with rBGH.

    So you have some cite to credible research indicating rBGH is hazardous
    to humans?

    Simple!
    If Walmart were a country, it would be China's 7th largest trading partner.
    So when the next US factory closes, you'll know who to blame.

    Yes, the consumer that insists on the lowest possible price no matter
    where it comes from.

    Remember that Pogo quote, "We have met the enemy and it is us."

    Hell, we apparently don't have any "credible research" that there is
    global warming, or that smoking cigarettes is *really* harmful to human
    health. "Credible" is in th eear of the behearer.

    There you go, asking for reee-search.
    Just go with your gut. Let's get a
    mob together, break into the jail, and

    But that does not make them a bad person. Wal Mart is the largest
    retailer too, so it stands to reason they would be the biggest
    importer of things we want to buy.

    Most US consumers are interested is getting the most for their money.
    They spend a lot of time comparing prices and going to the lowest
    price they can find. They don't look at where it was made, they just
    want the biggest TV screen, the fastest computer and the lowest
    possible price, no matter where it is made.

    And act surprised when good jobs are lost when factories are closed and
    their pets are killed by tainted pet food (but how about those low prices?).
