My complaint for the day :)

Okay so as of Feb. there was a law that passed that said it was illegal to sell lead toys to children 12 and under. But, the CPSC worded that law that said all products for children 12 and under with lead were illegal. This included dirt bikes because as you all know children put dirt bikes in their mouths to suck on them. So now all the companies that were selling children's dirt bikes can't sell them anymore and kids can't ride anymore until they are older. It also means that my husband and his brother can't work on fixing little kid's dirt bikes because no one can sell new parts. Now, the stupidest thing about all this is that the government said that the CPSC can restate the fact; saying it's okay to sell children's dirt bikes and kids can start riding again. But, they haven't...

Ok that's sooo retarded!
Zack's dirt bike stopped working last summer and I haven't fixed it yet (the spaces to get to stuff are sooo small!) So I guess Zack is in trouble!
SO what about fishing sinkers or Pinewood derby weights?
AND- Last I checked plain old dirt has lead in it soo why not outlaw dirt... sounds just as reasonable!
