I blame Obama.
That's one of the most ridiculous things I've seen anyone say on a forum and I've seen a lot of ridiculous things.
I blame China and Mattel. China for putting lead in toys and Mattel not catching it in time. Then the media, as usual, overblew the press on the recalls rather than just reporting it as a customer service message.
It's also telling that the reporter on that vid didn't get any info back from the Consumer Product Safey people. Laws like this just reaffirm my opinion that all politicians are out of touch with reality. With the economy tanking, reselling used goods is almost a must and to now outlaw it, very quietly I might add, just further beats down the little guys.
And serioulsy, how would this affect Goodwill and the Salvation Army? Let's put all these people out of work (potentially; at least stores like in the report) and then also take away the charity organizations that would help them? Tell me again how this is still a great country to live in?
