snip ...I have the notion that the scare about using old tires was probably
an exageration, that is why I choose to ask directly the manufactures.
Why on earth would you trust what the manufacturer has to say about their
product's safety? After all, the manufacturer has a vested interest in
Seeing, Hearing and Speaking no evil of a money making product.
Remember, it was the tobacco companies telling us cigarette don't cause
cancer and the electric power and oil companies telling us "No, there is no
global warming". Ronald Regan even told us tree were the source of NOx
pollution. Right, sure and now the National Reaseach Council come out with
their report., "Oh, sorry world, we just fibbed a little, so uh um, yea
there is a little global warming."
I guess it is kind of poetic justice that now that when a corporation makes
a statement no one will believe them even if it were true. Their
credibility is shot, zero zip, nada. Sort of a reverse on the little boy
who cried wolf story. We started down this Road of Doublespeak 20 or more
years ago and now people not only don't believe Ralph Nader, they don't
believe GM or other corporations either. Now with the expose about
corporate lawyer hiring on at the FDA to oversee the approval of the
products they worked on in the private sector, the government has fallen
into the same credibility morass as their corporate handlers.
Like the old saying, "What goes around comes around." and we are all worse
off for this too. Mike Miller
