This note found in with some crap from China indicates that not only is there no free lunch, there is no extremely cheap lunch. If you don’t pay full price, somebody else is making up the difference.
The note, like the box of Halloween decorations in which it traveled to America, appears to be a product of China’s system of re-education labor camps, which allows for detention without trial. It reeks of despair:
“If you occasionally buy this product, please kindly resend this letter to the World Human Right Organization. Thousands people here who are under the persicution of the Chinese Communist Party Government will thank and remember you forever.”
The graveyard kit, the letter read, was made in unit 8, department 2 of the Masanjia Labor Camp in Shenyang, China.
Chinese characters broke up choppy English sentences.
“People who work here have to work 15 hours a day without Saturday, Sunday break and any holidays. Otherwise, they will suffer torturement, beat and rude remark. Nearly no payment (10 yuan/1 month).”
Ten yuan is equivalent to $1.61.
Our progressive ruling class has made no secret of its admiration for communist China (see here and here and here), which is apparently serving as a model to guide the “fundamental transformation” of America. When liberals have imposed their utopia, where will we send our desperate pleas for help?
On a tip from wingmann.
