    How The CPSIA Wreaks Havoc In Every State -

    Look under the Oklahoma Link~

    "Forbes Magazine has indirectly quoted us (Littlecrow website) before in their articles about businesses fighting the clothing manufacturer requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008. But this latest article references our website directly - look under Oklahoma. Our message is getting out, even as Congress continues trying to evade pressure to amend the law. We've also been quoted in recent issues of the Navajo Times, and Cherokee One Feather, the Eastern Band NC Band of Cherokees. "

    There's all kind of information on this crazy law as well as a link to a petition.

    This is an important issue concerning ANYONE who makes to sell, or purchases children's clothing. The CPSIA is passing a law that makes it illegal to sell childrens items without extensive lead testing. This all came about from large corporations that have clothing ect. items made overseas, and then consumers started getting sick, skin rashes, ect. from products with alot of bad chemicals in the So basically the companies that caused the problem to arise, will be the only companies that will be able to afford all this testing. Imagine goin to a powwow and not being able to buy moccasins, baby barrettes ect. This doesn't only concern people who make childrens products.. consider how much the price of childrens accessories in general will go up if this passes? What doesn't make much sense to me is they're gonna expect all this testing on childrens keep kids safe, but yet no testing on the mother's clothing who's holding and exposing her children to untested articles? Doesn't make much sense does it?

        This whole law is out of hand. I sell my jewelry online-on etsy-and there were literally hundreds of shops on there that sell kids clothes and accesories getting ready to shut down because of this law. From what I have read on the etsy forum, there have been some exceptions made about material testing-it;s just the zippers and buttons they seem to worry about now. What a mess this has turned into.
        Take nothing for granted. Life can change irrevocably in a heartbeat.

        I will not feed the troll-well, I will try.

          Hey everyone. I hardly ever post up here unless it's something that I am really passionate about. Tonight I saw a story on CBS News that infuriated me to the point that I am spreading the word every where I can to lobby for change. Here is the link.

          This last one really got me to thinking - why does this happen? and......... with more frequency. Wherever you live, there is something strange going on. Earthquakes where there never was before. Tornadoes, a lot more of them. More hurricanes. Snowstorms. No snow. No rain. You hear something different...
