Irony

Love to the USA
Sweatshops in Haiti
Twenty machines in row
Sewing T- shirts that say
I LOVE the USA

granddaughter brings home from 4th July parade bobbles, candy & t-shirt made in Haiti saying
 I love USA. That was the Olympics as well as a lot of things .

Very interesting Debbie. I just had my 67th birthday. The things that happen in this world and the exploitation is a phenomenon that seems never-ending. We need to share our wealth globally at least to some extent for the sake of our own well being. Not just to be charitable. However, being charitable is wonderful in and of itself. It's hard for me to understand why the leaders we have do not understand any of this and the risk we are under because of poverty.

Excellent catch to describe the irony of modern global living and exposing the fate of those who face such situations. Thank you for your sweet comments on my Bible story poem. Love and best wishes..Ravindra.....Debbie Duncan

I get what your saying Debbie, It's the same all over, has been farmed out to those who can do it the cheapest irrespective of the conditions of the workers. Nice work. Take care, Richard

What makes it worse is that those folks truly need the work that those sweatshops provide and that their families need for their own children to work in them. It's a vicious circle. This is truly an example of irony.
