    Those darn liberals trying to protect children from dangerous recalled products with, gasp, education....
    I'm going to have to crack off at you on this mainly because the CPSC is a crack pot agency.
    They have abused their police power in the past.

    I dislike them very, very much.

    Exploding toasters are also bad things. So are cars that blow up when you hit them. People don't automatically know this stuff. Which is why we have a governmental agency to do it! This is way easier when you make my point for me.

    Well, no doubt if the toaster would blow up when it's pugged in--which is a rediculus statement--it would already be in the garbage, because...uh...it blew up when the original owner plugged it in.
    Not necessarily. Not every Pinto exploded when rear ended. But it will eventually if you keep rear ending it. Or plugging in the toaster. But I guess that's OK as long as you are re-selling it, not selling it.

    Yeah, I know, common sense comes at a premium now-a-days.
    Coming from you that may be the funniest statement ever. Irony be thy name.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    That is fine, but it does not change things that the OP was wrong in most every detail.

So, are rape laws also unfair government meddling? You are too much, dude. You think pot smokers should go to jail, but also think it's fine to sell someone a toaster that explodes when you plug it in? Seriously, are you high?
    An exploding toaster???? Where can I get one of those? (a gift for the mother inlaw you know)

    The real problem was that the OP was inaccurate. People need to fact check blogs, or they will bite you in the ass.

    I'm sure the amount of perfectly good car seats going in the trash as a result of a nonsensical law far exceeds the rare occurrence of a someone trying to sell a seat that was involved in an accident. It just seems horribly wasteful to me.

    I hate to see a perfectly good needed item like a baby car seat go to waste, but I would even more hate to see some one lose a child using a baby seat they thought was safe but was not.
