This report documents the modern slavery that distorts free trade, violates international labor standards and seriously violates human rights. Like the Soviet gulags, this penal system banishes inmates to a remote region and punishes them with hard labor, all while making money for the state.

The Chinese loving proggies don't care. They just want their cheap Chinese ----. They want to keep giving money to the Chinese so they can build more aircraft carriers

Yeah sure Goat, it's not the greedy corporations who are outsourcing all the manufacturing jobs. In you head anyway.

Name another country that does this, Danni, and provide citation. You said it happens in the US. Where? Before you provide that citation, read the article. And keep in mind this is state sponsored.

So what other countries do this, and where in the US does it happen, Danni?

"Prison Labor and the Thirteenth Amendment"

eji.org

By the middle of the 20th century, states abandoned convict leasing due to industrialization and political pressure and extended slavery through chain gangs and prison farms. This legacy continues to influence the criminal justice system today, in places like Louisiana State Penitentiary. Named "Angola" after the provenance of the enslaved people who worked the same land when it was a plantation, the prison requires incarcerated men to work in the fields. Eighty percent of Angola's imprisoned men are black, and its warden compares the grounds to "a big plantation in days gone by."

Well, she actually said that US Companies do it, not necessarily where. I think the argument is US companies outsource to places like China and the "slaves" are subcontracted.

He doxxed me on the retort and emailed me and my boss at work from a "self destructing" email account. I told my boss i had no idea wtf the guy was.

My mistake was, way back in the day, i emailed a couple people here from my personal email account. The internet was very different back then.

"I believe he got someone's real identity and mailed a printed collection of that guy's most awful RETORT posts to his employer and got him fired from his job."

Awful. Most of the stuff people say on here is just over the top and isn't reflective of their real selves. (I hope)

#101,

He sent me several self destructing email bombs as well. He was real creepy and a hacker.

"Dethspud always felt like a mid-50s balding white guy who wears nothing sweater vests and kakis while driving his windowless, soundproofed cargo van."

I pictured dethspud as a 40ish man with a slight pot belly and wearing an Aeropostale T-shirt a size too small and a backwards baseball cap. He probably had the elastic band of his Calvin Klein boxer briefs peeking above his acid washed and deliberately shredded jeans. IOW, trying desperately to look like a 'cool kid'.

He way overdid the 'hip internet lingo' thing.

I concur with the van.

"#97. I don't remember that but I do remember Jackass digging up something about a DR member from another source and posting it here. Mike Siesel aka Ozarkaggie was another creeper who was kind of scary. You could see the cruelty in his posts.

Didn't he have a real life thing going with one of the female members? Treesgonewild maybe? Whoever it was, he dissed her a couple of times publicly which was way wrong

No. Jackass was a jackass unto himself. Rasta was also Lokisfur, and a few other handles, all unmistakeable for their pretzel logic.

I've had a couple DR people email the account linked to my DR account. Since they didn't indicate who they were on the DR, I never responded as I was foolish enough when I made the account to have my real name associated with it. Once I respond, you know exactly who I am and there's not many people I trust on here to have that information.

As long as this thread has been diverted to a "where are they now" thing, what happened to afkabl2? He disappeared during my 25 year absence. I think I heard someone say earlier that he was doxed or someone dragged some very personal information about him here.

He was somewhat annoying, but harmless and could be amusing at times. I never let him bother me as a lot of people did.

Jackass found something about Larry and posted it. He went after ------------- and sent Rob personal stuff Jackass found out about Rob's wife. It was the wild west until RCade Earp made everybody coming into town check their guns.

I don't care who makes clothes as long as it's inexpensive.

Wear a shirt was made by Muslim slaves. That ought to make Muslim haters happy.

I remember that as well and I agree even though Laura is...never mind. Doesn't matter.

But Larry was incredibly ignorant of the internet to post his real name on a web site like that and on a post like that.

Off the top of my head, here are the people I've had at least one off-site email with:

Lfthndthrds
Live or Die
JPW
Larry
Roma
Lisa
Nom De Plume (that was a LONG time ago)
Mao
Sully
Chair
ROC
Sheeple
Goat
Hans
Roma
Danni
Gal
AU
Bocaink
Rcade
Danforth (long time ago)

I never share anything discussed privately, even if it's innocuous, without first getting permission.

I'm kind of surprised how long the list is. I have yet to meet anyone on this site in person. Have come close on a couple of occasions with AU and once with Tony.

He wanted to set up a fight with Walt and emailed him his address. Walt posted it on the DR.

We'll meet one day as long as you promise to smoke a brisket for me! That's a promise. In fact, I'm going to be in Green Bay for three weeks this holiday season and will likely grow tired of my in-laws and will need an excuse to get away for a couple of days. I've never done a road trip through that part of the country. We'll keep in touch.

It's been my policy my whole life. I never gave out a phone number or address without a person's permission and that extended to the brave new cyber-world.

Of course I talk about you behind your back every chance I get though, Jeff. :)

Dude.... Sri Lanks is predominantly Buddhist. LOL

My apologies, Mr Tremain. I should have specified piss-poor, heathenistic, godless, backwaters who copulate with goats, instead.

Aren't you guys tired of being punished by being the United States' and Europe's bitch? Turn away from your heathen/anamist religions and turn toward Christ...who will give it to you pressed-down, shaken together, and running over into your bosom.
