This is way off topic.. (scroll or scold. It's your choice but if scold please keep it clean.)
Substandard Drugs? What about all the other stuff?
KSFO San Francisco morning show has for years had local experts on telling what they suspect vis-a-vis the new Bay Bridge.
The steel is virtually 100% from China.
Just his week anonymous sources connected to the project and using a voice disguiser told KSFO listeners about cracks in the steel and there are portions of the bridge which can no longer be viewed. Same steel, same cracks? Their guess is yes.
A couple of years ago a California Dept. of Transportation inspector was found to have faked inspections on other projects.. it was too late to redo his inspections of the Bay Bridge if I remember correctly.
Everything coming out of Red China is suspect. IMO.
I am hoping the turmoil caused by changing Party leadership this time (for the first in decades) will "bring it all down, man" and Maoists will take charge, close the Bamboo Curtain, seize all the assets of the "useful idiot" corporations, and put them on a slow boat to America penniless. And NO TARP for them when they get here.
A couple of years ago IL DOT approved asphalt repaving on the Dan Ryan Expressway. The first bad snowfall and it was cratered like the Moon. The inspectors and all the materials were American sourced. Corruption can happen anywhere. The Chinese will come round. Free markets are based on trust.
