[AMRadio] More buzzies and hash

All they have to do is have one or two guys at the Port of Long Beach
and randomly pull open container shipments where it says on the
manifest that it is some consumer electronics product (television sets
for example) and pull one out of a carton, and power it up with a
spectrum analyzer there and if it is putting out garbage the whole
shipment gets kicked back overseas.

After that happens maybe two times, I bet everything would suddenly
start having caps and little ferrite beads added in the right places.

There is nothing about any of this that is impossible or
difficult--there are people doing this kind of thing except with food
and drugs right now.  This is just random electromagnetic measuring
and refusing entry.  It isn't happening because no one ever died from
poisonous LCD monitors the way they might from bad food.

Those companies have a lot  deeper pockets than do a few renegade chickenbanders and their ilk. By the same logic, rules and  laws already on the books should be able to better protect the public from such things as toxic paint on Chinese toys than has been  reported recently.
