More Toys recalled

Another massive toy recall is in the works and NOW Mattel is calling for rigorous standards.  Not labor standards mind you or anything else that would “level the playing field” for US manufacturing – just standards to protect the bottom line, err, that is the American consumer.  What pisses me off is that in the end when this cheap Chinese (or fill-in the third world country name here) crap finally catches up with the regulatory standards imposed on US industry – suddenly it won’t be cheap anymore.  But the damage to US labor has already been done – such is the global economy says the asshole CEO who justifies his amoral outlook by the size of his portfolio.
