    I oppose child swaetshops, but I do believe we have a few domestic priorities right now. How about if that useless organization known as the UN try and tackle that one? What do we pay dues for again?

    Have you thought this through?

    That's gonna put the ChiComs out of business, then they'll stop financing Neo- Nazis (aka: Democrats) Record Deficits.

    How is that going to work in reality? This is going to be like preventing banks from charging for overdrafts and as a result, we lose free checking.

    The Surgeon General has determined that Democrats are hazardous to your freedom and prosperity and should be avoided at all costs

    Because they know that children are parsites who don't pull their own weight.

    Pappa Atlas wants to shrug them off.

    Because republicans (and many democrats) are corporate tools or is that fools. Remember they defended the Chinese as they poisoned our children, now another one is saying Obama is being too harsh with BP. Birds of a feather flock together.


    "People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. It is impossible indeed to prevent such meetings, by any law which either could be executed, or would be consistent with liberty and justice. But though the law cannot hinder people of the same trade from sometimes assembling together, it ought to do nothing to facilitate such assemblies; much less to render them necessary." Adam Smith

    Remind me of the definition of a "child sweatshop" again? I dont think there is an accepted definition. If "sweatshop" is "any place I wouldn't want to work" then we have plenty of those here. Universities for starters.
    This is typical of the Dums: emotionally charged language lacking precision leading to legislation without any thought as to what will happen if passed.

    During the Renaissance, children apprenticed to guilds and masters when they were 13, what's wrong with that? Should Michelangelo have stayed home or at a failing public school and not apprenticed with Domenico Ghirlandaio and not been allowed to stay with Lorenzo de Medici?

    This.

    Children are only valuable to Republicans when they are unborn.
