Those Evil republicans want to kill Bangladesh'ians because the Republicans hate that the Folks on the Demokrat Plantations get to use their EBT Cards to buy cheap clothing made by Bangladesh'ian Childen who die in Bangladesh'ian Factories that are controlled by Bangladesh'ian Republicans!

Ya that's it, Bangladesh'ian Republicans killed their Employees, to help Amerikan Republicans Dethrone Barry and the Royal family!

Evil Bastard Republicans, they are EVERYWHERE!

All Republikans care about is the almighty dollar. They don't care about the poor, or worker safety, or government regulation of food and drugs.
Just money.
The EXACT OPPOSITE of what God cares about. Think about that while you go to church and pretend to be a Christian on Sunday.
No integrity poster of many names,

Does somebody just "drop a Quarter in your slot", pull your chain, and unleash you to spew ignorance on good people?

You are like one of my Grand Daughters Dolls, press your belly and you say the same 2 things every time.

Grow a pair and develop some personal shame!

If Governor Google Eyes has his way, he will tax ONLY high end clothing, so they will have to build another one of these factories ASAP, so we can buy more cheap clothing. Evil democrats!!! Punish the successful who don't want to buy clothing from slave labor countries.

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP)- As Bangladesh reels from the deaths of hundreds of garment workers in a building collapse, the refusal of global retailers to pay for strict nationwide factory inspections is bringing renewed scrutiny to an industry that has profited from a country notorious for its hazardous workplaces and subsistence-level wages.

After a factory fire killed 112 garment workers in November, clothing brands and retailers continued to reject a union-sponsored proposal to improve safety throughout Bangladesh's $20 billion garment industry. Instead, companies expanded a patchwork system of private audits and training that labor groups say improves very little in a country where official inspections are lax and factory owners have close relations with the government.

In the meantime, the number of deaths and injuries has mounted. In the five months since last year's deadly blaze at Tazreen Fashions Ltd., there were 40 other fires in Bangladeshi factories, killing nine workers and injuring more than 660, according to a labor organization tied to the AFL-CIO umbrella group of American unions. Manufacturers dispute that there have been that many recent incidents.

Wednesday's collapse of the Rana Plaza building that killed more than 300 people is the worst disaster to hit Bangladesh's fast-growing and politically powerful garment industry. For those attempting to overhaul conditions for workers who are paid as little as $38 a month, it is a grim reminder that corporate social responsibility programs are failing to deliver on lofty promises.

I believe that in 4 months as many Capetown Residents will be maimed and killed as there were in Bangladesh.
What will the Community Organizer from Capetown, Illinois, Amerika do about the safety on the Demokrat Vote Factories in Capetown?
