Bill Bonner: Jailhouse humour

Bill-Bonner2

“We’re not going to let a little thing like forced labour spoil our Freedom Fest holiday.  Anyway, it is only poor people who get caught up in the prisons’ slave market. So, we have nothing to worry about. We can hire a shyster lawyer when we need one.  Besides, we like the Land of the Free. Which is to say, we appreciate hypocrisy. After all, it is the ‘homage that vice pays to virtue’. Without it, virtue wouldn’t get any strokes at all.  Free minds and free markets are virtues too. Nobody cares about them either. Not in America. We have the schools to shackle minds. And we have the feds to lock up, beat up, and tie up the markets.”
