american wage slaves fight over chinese slave goods

It’s getting way too predictable for our liking. The name “Black” joined with Friday, in itself, is worth looking at – in all its Satanic symbolism. Why do they try to market this event as some sort of national holiday and call it “Black”? It all started with the Cabbage Patch Doll uprisings back in the 1980′s. It seemed like a fluke at the time. But the trend has raged on, and on. An epic battle for a load of cheap plastic made in China and Vietnam, mostly by women and children on a dollar a day.

Would you rather we round up all of our Walmart shoppers, and send them over to China and Nam to have them kick the shit out of the Slave labor?

It might motivate them to up production, so there wont be any shortage brouhahas.

It is not the slave labor than needs their shit to be kicked, now, is it?

That's the problem with right wingers, they always think the solution to any problem is a war.

These are artificial shortage brouhahas, though.
The force behind the fights and the hype is the loss-leader pricing, which is a psychological bullying tactic to get people to fight over things which they wouldn't buy (too costly), let alone fight over, at the actual cost.
