I believe it's my capitalist duty (you did read your handbook didn't
you?) not to give a rat's-back-side about anyone else. I want the
children working in slave camps making my cheap foot coverings
_somewhere_else_, just not in _my_ neighborhood. Nevermind they get
marked up to insane prices once they get here - that's capitalism!
In the end everyone gets screwed, reguardless of what you call it, god
bless america! (you're supposed to say that too)

Luckily I got an education and don't buy any of that anymore. Like every
other time in history, eventually the slave workers get pissed off and
burn the civilization to the ground. Rinse, lather, repeat.
