You are all invited to join the group "CPSIA Endangered Books."
Any pre-1985 children's books are now considered unsafe and may no longer be sold or bartered. What do you think about that?

Please join this group! And help save endangered vintage children's books!

Don't let Fahrenheit 451 happen without a protest!

If you care about the old books, please take the time to read and sign this petition... Book banning in any form is just wrong.

I just received this email and think it's worth sharing.

Amend The CPSIA

Dear Supporter,

I am sure you are aware of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) and the unintended and disastrous consequences this ill written law has on our National economy. Businesses large to small have been working to Amend this Law and so far, without success. However, I am very pleased to announce that Amend the CPSIA is organizing a Rally on Capital Hill, April 1st from 10am EST to 11:30am EST. For complete information regarding this historic event please visit our website at We will have congressional representation, industry leaders and businesses owners, affected and outraged by this law, there to speak on behalf of all of our businesses that are currently in jeopardy. I urge you to participate and there are many ways to do so via the website. You can:
Join us at the Rally! Click here for more information.

Submit your personal story online about how this law has affected you and your business.
Get Involved with our organization and let your voice be heard! Click here for more information.

We have a large list of Sponsors including Goodwill Industries, Handmade Toy Alliance, Motorcycle Industry Council, and the Alliance for Children’s Product Safety, just to name a few. The list showcases the broad impact this law has on so many vital organizations in our communities.

We invite you to join us at the Rally. Please submit a Registration form* (*not required to attend) so that we can keep track of attendees at the event. We also ask that you subscribe to the site so that you can receive email updates as they are posted. At the Rally there will be a check in table with information about the impacts of the CPSIA, samples of products affected, and great souvenirs to buy to help defer the costs of the event.

We truly appreciate your ongoing support to Amend the CPSIA. Participate and be heard!

Let's keep children's products safe, and American businesses in business!

Barton & Others Propose H.R. 1815 - Possible Relief
April 8, 2009 by Dana

The submission of the bill HR 1815 by Rep Barton and a handful of other Representatives is meant to clarify the applicability of certain provisions of the CPSIA (and for other purposes).

We recommend that you read this bill and then contact your your representatives to ask that they co-sponsor or vote in favor of this bill.
