Companies need more character

Sunday, May 23, 2010

To the Editor:

According to recent news reports, yet another item has been recalled from Walmart due to chemical contamination originating from China.

One has to wonder when Americans are going to wake up and refuse to do business with this country who has virtually destroyed our economy, continues to export leaded materials and basically means to do us nothing but harm.

China imprisons people who disagree with its policies, forces slave labor to fill Walmart's shelves, usually for pennies an hour ... forbids religious teachings, impedes sanctions against rogue states such as Iran and North Korea, artificially devalues its own currency to tip trade balances its way and guess what, it is our chief trading partner.

Small wonder our country is going down the tubes.

We appear to stand for nothing but money anymore.

American companies who have such small moral character need to be weeded out by consumers and shown the same door that they have shown us.
