Ya don't? I think there could be some savings by choosing free labor over merely cheap labor, especially if you don't have international shipping costs involved.
We have learned over the years that when you make your slaves think they are free they a far more productive than when they think they are not.

And as Trump preens like a conqueror in front of the lights, cameras and cheering crowds, and as he turns over the governance of America to those of a seriously authoritarian mind because the work of governance is not his thing, and as he forwards those who do believe whites and Anglo-Saxon culture are not merely superior to others but are tasked by God with ensuring white dominance over others, and when he's not trying to bully and insult any reporting on him that is critical or insufficiently adulatory, Trump goes full tilt into kleptocracy. He's going to cash in. This makes him smart, as he's told us.
All of it highlights the muddy new world that Trump’s election may usher in — a world in which his stature as the U.S. president, the status of his private ventures across the globe and his relationships with foreign business partners and the leaders of their governments could all become intertwined.
In that world, Trump could personally profit if his election gives a boost to his brand and results in its expansion overseas. His political rise could also enrich his overseas business partners — and, perhaps more significantly, enhance their statuses in their home countries and alter long-standing diplomatic traditions by establishing them as new conduits for public business.
No. Not in the least. He's going to be our most corrupt ptrsident ever, already mostly there, and he's not even in office yet. As well as a true authoritarian,. And he didn't even come close to winning the vote. The deluded fools who voted for him have fucked this country thoroughly.

The effort to recount votes in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania was spearheaded by Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who echoed arguments that Russia may have hacked US voting machines to interfere with the outcome of the November 8 election....
Stein contended that this was a "hack-riddled election" that warrants a second look at the votes. Trump won by thin margins in the three states Stein aims to contest.
Speculation that electronic voting machines could be hacked has largely been debunked, primarily because the machines are not connected to the internet.
The Times notes that officials close to Democrat Hillary Clinton's campaign allegedly wanted nothing to do with the recount effort...On Saturday, the Clinton campaign's general counsel, Marc Elias signaled that the campaign would indeed participate in the recount, citing "claims of abnormalities and irregularities." Elias added, however, that there is so far no evidence that the results were manipulated.
Officials in the Obama administration threw cold water on the effort...A statement from the Obama administration cited by The New York Times ...[said]: we stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people,"
Hmm, does this mean Hilly and Barry aint friends no more, I wonder?

I wonder if others should also accept the "fools" responsibility? "groups like the DNC, News media and all of the people who Pushed so hard for the idea of making the least trusted Democrat primary candidate in US history to be our president.
There's one, and only one, person responsible for all of this: Jamey Comey.

This is the biggest danger to democracy when fools vote for a racial bigot, narcissist, scammer of the public with his fake university.

In the meantime, Kellyanne seems to have acquired some rhetorical devices from her association with the Donald:
The announcement prompted a sharp response from Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, now a senior adviser to the president-elect.
“What a pack of sore losers,” Conway said in a statement to Bloomberg. “After asking Mr. Trump and his team a million times on the trail, ‘Will HE accept the election results?’ it turns out Team Hillary and their new BFF Jill Stein can’t accept reality.”
“Rather than adhere to the tradition of graciously conceding and wishing the winner well, they’ve opted to waste millions of dollars and dismiss the democratic process. The people have spoken. Time to listen up. #YesYourPresident,” Conway said.
You go, Girl.

These two sisters say CNN is racist and "aint nuthin but liars." The cheese-eaters have alienated virtually everyone at this point:
Plato said, hundreds of years ago, that anyone who wants to be President is not qualified to be.
I really enjoyed reading Plato's writings especially Socrates's Apology.

They asked him what his punishment (for PC violations labelled "blasphemy") should be. That was their their way of allowing him to go free, as long as he went. Had he proposed banishment as a punishment, they would have readily agreed and imposed that sentence.
Instead, he said he should be rewarded with public accomodations because he performed a valuable service for the city of Athens.
The GALL of it all, eh? That did it! They smoked his ass. That **** CANNOT be allowed to persist.

These people on the christian right like DeVos or Reed have previously pointed to people exactly like Trump as irrefutable evidence of the decline of America's morals and as proof that christian values were on the edge of being crushed. But now he's a good guy because he is facilitating their political/ideological domination of American citizens and institutions.
As a Bible-believing Christian, I must say that you are absolutely right. Frankly, I've not been surprised by the actions of so many of the so-called right-wing evangelicals. Their record is not a good one. For example, Jim Crow lynchings were more common in the so-called Bible belt than they were in the rest of the country. Today I guess "Character matters" applies only to the Clintons since they're Democrats.
very strong odor of the old Soviet Union in there
not a surprise
Ain't it so. The potential for corruption of the presidency here looks like nothing we've ever seen. And given the man himself and the desire of those now arriving in power around him to keep him there so that their objectives can be realized looks to be a perfect storm for serious badness. And then, if he does get so obviously into corrupt steps via his position that he becomes an impediment to the movement conservative people, they've got Pence as a backup.

They're not all bad, I must say. But far, far too many (not just evangelicals - Bill Donahue is one of the ugliest christians or humans around) represent some theology which heads about 180 degrees from the christianity I grew up in. Cheering for torture is merely one aspect of their zest for the punitive. They are rather more akin to the enthusiastic audiences in the Roman coliseum than to the folks below getting ripped to shreds.
