CPSIA upends the kids’ furniture business

  • I was so sad when I read the Woodworking article. Over and over: “We are parents too, and want our products to be safe.”

    NO NO NO. The concept of safety is intellectual. Pure emotion is out of place. Following standards shows superficially that one is a good citizen. But somebody should ask if the standards are better than having a witch doctor cast out risk with a magic chant. They are not.

    Zero level lead is no mre rational than the various zero tolerance policies in schools and workplaces. CPSIA is bad, not because it bankrupts firms, but because there is no good associated with its terrific costs.

    Our citizens see some semblance of Adolf Hitler in President Obama, a ridiculous stretch, but conform to the maniacal James August. Good Grief!
