China’s Economy Failing: Dogs Dying: Hmmmm…

Today’s Globe reports

China’s growth decelerated sharply and unexpectedly in the third quarter of this year to 9 percent, raising fears that the global financial crisis could pull one of the world’s fastest-growing economies into a recession.

The extent of the fall surprised economists, and several revised their economic forecasts for China downward to what the story terms ‘a dangerously low level for China’.

Tens of thousands of Chinese factories have closed. The stock market has lost billions of dollars.

The failing economy is being attributed to the global financial woes of late.

The Lion suggests another cause.

Dead dogs.

According to the Globe…

Some 1,500 dogs bred for their raccoon-like fur have died after eating feed tainted with melamine, a veterinarian said yesterday, raising questions about how widespread the industrial chemical is in China’s food chain.

And that’s on top of the recent dairy industry poisoning that killed several babies and sickened over 50,000 others, and found its way outside of China too.

Since the government of China and the industries of China are intent on profits to the point that they accept the killing of dogs, cats, babies, and apparently anything else from which they can profit, it seems only right to reject all goods from China.

It’s not just food. They even sold poisoned chairs. They sold chairs in Europe that had been coated with a substance that caused violent allergic reactions in people.

The Lion is doing his part to destroy the economy of China by refusing to buy anything made in China or containing any parts or ingredients from China. Of course that can’t always be determined, since the origin of ingredients is seldom listed and since American companies refuse to list them or notify consumers until compelled by law, regulation, or dying customers. But if something says ‘Made in China’ or ‘Made Anywhere Near China’ The Lion’s not buying it.

Buying dog food or a chair should not be a life or death decision.

But apparently that’s the Chinese way. So to hell with them. Let them rot in their own greed and callousness.

  1. China needs a couple of Mavericks who’ll go in there and get all mavericky to end greed and corruption and fight evil.

    Of course you know what the REAL reason they’re like that is, don’t you? They’re godless. No god = no morals. Wall Street? Godless, too. Terrorists? Wrong god. See how simple that is? Simple = mavericky. You betcha.

  2. And doggonit Philly, I know just the two Mavericks to send over there… but on second thought, they’d probably not last too long because the Chinese would arrest them and execute them for crimes against rationality and logic.

    And that would be bad, why?
