Bashir is a vile person, but what the hell was Palin saying about "slavery?" I don't understand how China calling in notes is akin to slavery. It makes no sense historically, and it was politically stupid of her.
It made no sense to me, and seemed to be thrown into her speech to garner attention.
From a purely secular perspective, how do you not see that being in debt that cannot ever be repaid is slavery?
Again, from a purely secular perspective, much of the modern day slavery in the world has to do with debts that cannot be repaid.
The slave-owner imposes debts on the indentured servant that exceed his ability to repay them, and as a result, his children and their children are enslaved.
You need to do a little research on bonded labor, Carling. What Sarah Palin said makes perfect sense in either a religious or secular realm.
