Avoiding the "Made in China" Label

Another week, another recall of poisonous Chinese toys with lead paint on them. And we happen to have some in this round as well, the Baby Einstein Learning Blocks.

We've decided to avoid pretty much all toys that carry the mark of the beast, "Made in China". The conspiracy theorist in me thinks this is calculated and intentional. By stupidifying and poisoning the next generation, China becomes THAT much more powerful.

Either way, I'm going to actively avoid purchasing toys made in china. It probably won't be too easy to do but I will try.

On a micro note, I successfully educated my mother-in-law about the harm Wal-Mart inflicts on the US. I don't think she's stopping shopping there for now but her eyes have been opened a little bit.
