96% of all American, supermarket Tilapia come from the mouth of the Yangtze.

The eggs are hygenically sanitized before they are carefully put in oxygenated conical incubators. Eggs at different stage remain at the hatchery for the next five to seven days before they are hatched into swim up fries ready for sex reversal at our nursery . Swim up fries are fed with special hormone sex reversed micro feed for 21 days or more to complete them into all male fingerlings. Healthy male fingerlings are carefully graded in the packing bays to select the best for the customers. World Wide Fund for Nature says the Yangtze Delta is the biggest cause of marine pollution in the Pacific Ocean. 96% of all American, supermarket Tilapia come from the mouth of the Yangtze, where the septic tank meets the East China sea

I snorted so hard pre-laugh, I'm still trying to dig a lit cigarette out of my sinus cavity.

I didn't spray, so you don't owe me a keyboard... but this is gonna hurt.

The one on the left is a moderate, and is getting ducky support funds from Obama, so that he can take over Syria.

Cities have always been filthy and polluted. It's only in the last 100 years that sanitation has improved tremendously with the introduction of running water, indoor plumbing and waste water plants. And until the last 50 years, rivers were essentially large cesspools - a repository of raw sewage for transportation by natural means to the sea. That's what you still have in Third World countries like China, India and any number of developing countries. For instance, the scenes from India featured in this article are pretty eye-opening. And that's just the visible pollution.

Yikes!

I don’t like to eat imported fish. I will pay more to have the local product.

Concerning China, I have long said that it is only a matter of time before their food practices unleash a plague upon the whole world. Just wait.

What's with hating on plaid and beards and long hair?

That's what I look like when I'm happy, except I've got my pony tail up and neat and tight. Beard does get a little bit out of control....

The death of one duck is a trajedy. Unless it’s dinner. The death of a thousand is a statistic. Or a fully packed freezer.

As one commentor on that site said, “I’ll never look at India the same way.”

I can’t imagine the stench.

But...I’d LOVE to send Barry, Manchelle and “The Iranian-Of-The-Day”:Valerie Jarrette and every other f-ing progressive/Marxist/Kenite to bathe in India’s waters for the rest of their lives while they contemplate the hatred they have had for America.

Brush your “store-bought” teeth in the waters, Barry.

Virtually all fish sold at Walmart comes from China or Viet Nam. We don’t buy fish there.

Well, they probably don’t have a SNAP program in China so they provide a river of food.

“...it is only a matter of time before their food practices unleash a plague upon the whole world. Just wait.”

Dead pigs and ducks thrown into already polluted rivers with who knows what else in them being used to water crops or for drinking. The whole country is a disease incubator.

Those poor people.
