After a catastrophic fire which killed 111 workers in a factory in Dhaka,Bangladesh on 11/24/12,a quick thinking citizen journalist entered what was left of the factory to document the labels of the clothing being manufactured there.Apparently it was well known locally that Walmart was one of the clients whose products were in production there most of the time.Wading through the mess wielding an iPhone,Proof Was Found-in the form of labels bearing a Walmart Brand Name-How DELICIOUSLY IRONIC-The Brand Name of the Clothes the workers were creating for Poverty Stricken Americans? FADED GLORY! LMAO! You Can't Make This Stuff Up!

I don't doubt this one bit, but I'm sure our detractors will demand a link.

I'd like to know how many more "factories" WallyWorld employs in Bangladesh where workers are subjected to the same conditions.

Or all the others in the World, for that matter.

Sorry about the link-I just could not help myself,even though I have been admonished repeatedly for not posting links.Part of today's program on Democracy Now was about this tragic fire which has been linked to Walmart.I checked into the News Articles about it on Google News also.I will restrain myself in the future.Sorry.

Gosh.

Don't be sorry for stating the truth.

Here, this should do just fine.

WallyWorlds profitable death factories are taking a back seat to gun nuttery.

Unfortunate and yes, more than a little ironic as they are one of the largest gun sellers in America too.

Thanks for checking in harry............:)
