    Ah, yes, with all that trade the US and Canada do with China, we have tended to gloss over the fact that it is still totalitarian, haven`t we? The lure of the good deal tends to overwhelm our knowledge of the brutal reality in that country.

    Yeah, Joe Biden was sent by Obama to kiss AS* and talk China up. They own us, don`t you know? Obama needs China to afford the Federal Government raises he handed out recently.

    Yeah, they do that in prisons here too, the inmates get something like $0.35/hr to make license plates and sh*t like that. What stands out about this is the part where the letter says most of them are sent to those labor camps without a trial. That`s the f*cked up part when it comes to those places.

    "Wanna be horrified, take a look at what goes on in American prisons."

    Yep. 3 hots and a cot and top notch healthcare for free. Exercise programs. Education for free. A job for free.

    Horrible.

    "Wanna be horrified, take a look at" ANY OF auburnjunky`s IDIOTIC POSTS.

    AJ, wtf world do you live in? You really DO believe everything faux and drudge tell you to believe, don`t you doofus? A year-long study by the Commission on Safety and Abuse in America`s Prisons determined the top improvement needed was access to better healthcare. Why don`t you do us all a huge solid and spend the next year or five in one of those "top notch" health spas so you can report back to us just how great they are, okay? What a freaking asshat!

    Chalket:

    I don`t watch TV news you drating prat.

    I have never read Drudge.

    THEY ARE dratING PRISONERS! Why should they get special treatment of any kind?

    Let one of these drating Darwin award wastes of space rape your wife, or kill your child, (or vice versa)then you go argue for their rights to better healthcare, or wages.

    drat that!

    I earn about 50k a year give or take. It takes $60,000 a year to house an inmate. WHY?! It`s bullpoo, and it disgusts me that we do this.

    Yes, slave labour in Chinese prisons is shocking. But if you think it`s not going on in your very own prisons, America, you`re deluding yourself. 20% of office furniture in the US is made by slave labour in your prisons. And prisons like Angola State Prison in Louisiana are just modern slave plantations. Women don`t escape abuse by being used as slave labour in your torture centres either. Not to mention the sexual abuse of female prisoners that goes on.

    I hear it costs considerably less in Communist countries.

    Sounds like typical propaganda. If those people were actually sick of those conditions they would grow a sack and revolt like every other nation that has gotten sick of that kind of thing. Seriously try keeping that many people under control it`s literally a facade that the people in power actually have any power at all.

    If they wanted us to change our political ideas what would we tell them to do?

    "Once again. Prisoners, not people"
    - That`s kind of drated up

    "It`s their country.
    If they wanted us to change our political ideas what would we tell them to do? "

    -It`s religious and political persecution.

    Try revolting against a superpower who doesn`t give a drat about you. It`s no facade, they can afford to wipe out millions to keep the rest in line.

    AJ praised free health care? Last time I checked, he was one of the biggest moaners about the free health care for all Obama put in.

    Sadly there is not a whole lot we can do about Chinese Labor. We tell them to make stuff for us cheeper and that`s how they do it. To stop it, companys would need to boycott overseas production until conditions are improved. Not going to happen.

    Firstly Evil, I didn`t praise any free healthcare.

    Secondly, Obamacare is NOT free healthcare. I really wouldn`t have any problem with truly free healthcare.
