Caveat Emptor: Something Smells Fishy In America.

You might think that you could trust American business to be honest and trustworthy. Well, that is what many American Political Conservatives, such as Republicans, Tea Party members, Libertarians, etc. would have us all believe. You know who I mean --- the ones who blame liberal politicians, Democrats, and others concerned about ALL Americans for poor business climates in the United States, the ones who assert there is too much government regulations involved in American business ventures and that those government regulations harm business and are the cause of unnecessary rises in prices; the ones who say businesses can regulate and police themselves; the ones who postulate that unscrupulous businesses will not be allowed to continue their existence because customers will go elsewhere.

Well, I want to state that something smells fishy in America when it comes to the private business world. There is something very wrong when businesses will rip off customers with downright fraudulent practices, and the political conservatives continue to defend what appears to be business-as-usual in the United States of America, and the American government is blamed for the ills of private American businesses.

Hey, have you ever heard the story about that new diet? You know - the seafood diet -- yep, whenever I see food I eat it. Well, I am not about to eat the business practices of American restaurants, grocery stores, and others that are defrauding the American public when it comes to seafood. I think that it does smell fishy.

Fish fraud is running pampant in America, the land of the free, the land of opportuity, the United States of America. Watch this video from June 8, 2011, Fish Fraud: Are you sure about what you are eating?

Here is another video, Boston Globe and Oceana Investigate Fish Fraud from January 20, 2012, for you to watch and listen.

This fish fraud has been ongoing; and, it continues to exist despite the fraudulent practices of American businesses involved in the seafood industry. Examples of the fraudulent American business practices within the fish food business may be read in the following articles:
ABC News Blogs, Investigation Uncovers Rampant Fish Fraud, October 25, 2011.
The Associated Press, That's Fishy: Feds Fight Fraud In Seafood Sizes, NPR, March 15, 2012.
Hsu, Tiffany, Fishy fraud: Officials fight overweighted, overpriced seafood, Los Angeles Times, March 15, 2012.

Well, as the saying goes: Caveat Emptor.
Something Smells Fishy In America. Way To Go, USA!
