Boy! This new iPone is Fantastic!

How do you like that new iPhone? Boy, it’s a dandy, isn’t it? Darn thing will do EVERYTHING exempt cook breakfast, and it might do that with the next upgrade. Do you know where that phone was made? What, Apple didn’t tell you? Then I will. Apple iPhones are made at a big old factory called Foxcomm in China. What you are holding in your hand is a marvel of technology and it was made by a man or woman whose salary is—$2.00 A DAY.

But that’s not the worst part. Foxcomm has the largest suicide rate of any corporation in the world. Employees are often beaten by their supervisors, often made to work 24 hours a day and have a quota of iPhones they must assemble or be further punished. Conditions are so bad that once a group of employees gathered on the roof and threatened to commit mass suicide if their working conditions didn’t improve.

The company quickly responded. They put up nets below the roof line so if people jumped they couldn’t fall. That’s how they “improved” working conditions.

There was a time when liberals in this country would raises hell about slaves in general and would never buy anything made by slaves. But now slave labor is okay. Nobody in America complains about it because of two things. That dogggone phone is so much fun and China is so far away. The other reason Americans ignore slaves making their phones is that Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple is a homosexual, a firm believer in “climate change” and he donates tons of money to Democrats. He’s a man who “really cares.” He’s also a proponent of “”women’s rights” and “equal pay for women who make less than men…” That last one is not true.

You often hear, especially from pandering politicians, that a woman makes 77 cents to a man making a dollar. That is a lie. When women and men are compared IN THE SAME JOB, women actually make about 8% more than the men.

But, what the hell. Chinese are funny looking people and they eat fish heads and if they only make $2.00 a day producing your nifty iPhone, who cares? Apparently nobody.

And that phone cost you a LOT of money. Of course, the slave who made it would never in a lifetime make enough money to afford one, but it’s making Apple the richest company in America. So why don’t you text your friends and you can get together and text each other. While you’re doing that I’ll wait for Rush Limbaugh and all the other fanatic Apple lovers to castigate me for telling you the truth—a slave made your Apple phone.
