And suddenly it becomes obvious we're reading trump fan boys struggling with reality.

2000 Yuan is $290 a week, $15,000 a year. US poverty line is $12,082 a year. These prisoners (assuming this is not a fake letter) don't have to pay for their food and board... They're making more money than a minimum wage US worker makes with less expenses plus they've committed some manner of crimes under Chinese law. What's the issue here?

ETA. Crap, misread. That's $290 a month, not per week. I'll leave the original and wear the egg on my face over it.

What's OBVIOUS is who the anti capitalistic folks are, and they are the haters of Walmart and every other business here in America.

Since their entire ideology has ran business out of this country.

Commonly referred to as communists.

Crying about victims in a communist regime.

In all reality it can be called self loathing.

Right I forgot about the people that run around throwing that facist label around when they really don't understand it's meaning to begin with.

Free market, and wage dictated on market principals is anything but fascist.

Its one of the fundamental principals of what they use to call liberalism once upon a time.

Prisoners are paid $290 per month? Why should they be paid at all? If these are real prisoners who have been criminals and done real crimes (as opposed to political prisoners) I don't see what the fuss is about. In China prisoners are not treated as if they are on holiday with all their emotional and physical needs met during their temporary absence from their usual crime scenes and pool of victims. My guess is prisoners can't elect to have transgender surgery in China.

Message in a bottle. That is what desperate people, hostages, victims do.

What to do with it?
Call the media. Your choice. CNN, MSNBC, FOX, hell even INFOWARS. Let that person know that their PLEA FOR HELP was received.

Just because Hitler said it doesn't mean it isn't true.
Selfish much?



Same era. FDR said it, too.

That has nothing to do with it. The Chinese person isn't Donald Trump who just wants their name in illuminated Gold Letters. The Chinese person wants help. They have done all they could to ask for help.

Silly.

Yeah, short of taking it to a forensic lab and testing the ink (or whatever substance) and paper to see where it originated, and test things like pollen and the like trapped in the paper fibers, I have a hard time believing this is authentic.

That said, though, that doesn't meant that I think the information on the note isn't somewhat accurate...I'm sure that prisons over there are literal hells compared to U.S. prisons.

Odd reaction. But whatever blows your hair back, neo. It's still the truth. Compassion. It's a thing.

Short of reading about current events about a little town in Kentucky that got over ran by a bunch of 'white supremacist's' from a workers party.



White supremacists from the Traditionalist Workers Party, the League of the South and the National Socialist Movement — the country’s most-prominent neo-Nazi organization — gathered on the side of the town’s historic courthouse and screamed back and forth at anti-fascist (Antifa) demonstrators who were separated from the Nazis by police and barricades.

And inconvenient truth to Walmart/Big business haters.

I may be missing the point of this, but what does that have to do with what I said?

And for the record, the white supremacists didn't overrun the town...it was a planned event that ended relatively peacefully and they left, according to your link. That said, it seems like a couple of idiot groups yelling so loudly at each other that they can't hear what the other was saying...but I still don't see what that has to do with my comment.

Never given Walmart a single dollar. Never will. Supporting Walmart is not supporting capitalism or business. It's supporting a monopolistic destroyer of business. It's the end or capitalism in favor of corporatocracy. No thanks. They are universally part of the problem.
