Pope Compares Bangladesh Factory Workers To 'Slave Labor'

Pope Francis has equated the wages paid to Bangladeshi workers who died in last week's building collapse to "slave labor."

More than 400 people were killed in the April 24 collapse of the Rana Plaza building outside Dhaka; the building housed several garment factories that made products for Western brands.

News reports say that workers at the factories housed in the building were paid about 38 euros a month (about $50).

"This was the payment of these people who have died," the pope said, according to Vatican Radio. "And this is called 'slave labor!' "

Francis' comments came at a Mass Wednesday to mark the feast of St. Joseph the Worker.

"Not paying a just [wage], not providing work, focusing exclusively on the balance books, on financial statements, only looking at making personal profit. That goes against God!" the pope added, according to Vatican Radio

Aunt Bettie Lou, "Christians have a voice. It's how we use it and if we are standing behind the truth in speaking out." Nothing says "I love Jesus" quite like killing his pets and puking on his furniture.'Research by David C. Barker of the University of Pittsburgh and David H. Bearce of the University of Colorado uncovered that belief in the biblical end-times was a motivating factor behind resistance to curbing climate change.

“[T]he fact that such an overwhelming percentage of Republican citizens profess a belief in the Second Coming (76 percent in 2006, according to our sample) suggests that governmental attempts to curb greenhouse emissions would encounter stiff resistance even if every Democrat in the country wanted to curb them,” Barker and Bearce wrote in their study, which will be published in the June issue of Political Science Quarterly.'..." You want to make it even grimmer, add the further religious presumption that God doesn't mind if His true believers leave the place a wreck, no skin off anybody's nose, not like anybody or anything is going to be using the place after he picks his chosen us up on his holy charter bus to the big casino in the sky. Now that's narcissism. " And the one thing everyone can agree on about Jesus--he was no narcissist. Check this out: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/05/01/1206...

A US jury has awarded $240m (£154m) to 32 mentally disabled men who suffered decades of abuse while working at a turkey processing company in Iowa.

Jurors in Davenport heard how the men had been kicked, verbally abused and denied toilet breaks by their employers from Henry's Turkey Service.

One expert said the disabled workers - who were each paid only $65 per month - had been "virtually enslaved".

Patriotism, Jobs Primary Motivations for 'Buying American'

Six in 10 say they would pay more to buy U.S.-made products

PRINCETON, NJ -- Forty-five percent of Americans say they recently made a special effort to buy products made in the United States. When asked why, these shoppers mainly cited patriotic or altruistic goals related to the national economy, including creating and keeping jobs in the U.S., rather than product-specific considerations such as quality, safety, or cost.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/162110/patriotism-...

Good stuff. Let's get that number higher, to 80-90%.

Come on rightwingers get in the game.

Quit buying all the Chinese made crap from Walmart, especially you Flack.

Check this out: http://www.frontporchrepublic.com/2013/04/a-p... " At my worst moments, I succumb to thinking that we have become utterly trite, absorbed by ephemera, thin of character, quick but scattered of intellect, weak of will, and just at a moment in which we face gravely serious issues. We need Pericles or Alcuin or Aquinas or Milton or Lincoln, but we have the UN and Dewey and John Shelby Spong and the National Endowment for the Arts, and ... well, take your pick from among the politicians.

Despite some earnest wishes for a Third Way, our politicians and politics seem, as Front Porcher Mark T. Mitchell, puts it in The Politics of Gratitude: Scale, Place, and Community in a Global Age,“dominated by ‘liberals’ and ‘conservatives’ who often seem both illiberal and downright hostile to conserving much of anything.”

As an alternative to politics as usual, Mitchell develops “the politics of gratitude,” articulating foundational principles generally overlooked in our dead-end political oscillations, namely,(1) creatureliness,(2) gratitude,(3) human scale, and (4) place, before explaining the implications of those principles for (1) politics,(2) economics, 93) the natural world,(4) family, and (5) education.

The politics of gratitude is, he explains, rooted in stewardship, to persons “who commit themselves to preserving the good things of the world. Together they dwell in their various places, watching over those places and the good inherent therein as they tend them in trust for the next generation. Stewardship gives birth to acts of responsibility and care that are oriented toward the long-term preservation of the natural, cultural, and institutional goods we have inherited, even as it seeks to improve them.…”

Oh really Gunner? Did you reckon the boy went to Wallyworld all by hisself and bought it?

BURKESVILLE, Ky.— In southern Kentucky, where some children get their first guns even before they start first grade, Stephanie Sparks was cleaning the kitchen as her 5-year-old son played with the small rifle he was given last year. Then, as she stepped onto the front porch, "she heard the gun go off," a coroner said.

In a horrific accident Tuesday that shocked a rural area far removed from the national debate over gun control, her son, Kristian, had fatally shot his 2-year-old sister, Caroline, in the chest, authorities said.

Kristian's rifle was kept in a corner of the mobile home, and the family didn't realize a bullet had been left in it, Cumberland County Coroner Gary White said.

Down in Kentucky where we're from, you know, guns are passed down from generation to generation," White said. "You start at a young age with guns for hunting and everything."

Walmarts are now being built along Federal Hway, they used to be always out west. They're building them every 20 miles, they're going to put all the other stores out of business. The local politicians are all crooks, it's a shame how people don't pay attention to local politics, it's disgusting what they get away with.

That's a very sad story lily. The owner, a Texan had sent 0ver 1000 disabled men from Texas to labor camps around the country, many of them in Iowa where they worked for as little as 41 cents per hour.

The workers were not allowed cellphones and were never advised of any legal rights they may have.

The owner was also a tax cheat have not even filed in some recent years.

Plenty of good Midwestern Christian folk knew that this slavery arrangement had been occurring for thirty years and didn't raise a finger in protest.

I don't think the men will see any of their jury award.

Some towns try and fight Walmart coming in and destroying their local businesses but with their army of lawyers they don't stand a chance. Or they agree to concessions such as building on the outskirts or upgrading the roads/traffic lights and other improvements and then after the town approves them coming in again they show up with their army of lawyers to get out of upgrading the roads/traffic lights and other improvements which they had agreed upon.

Walmart is scum and only complete aholes and fools shop there.
