US doesn't drive fashion. Wasn't it Leopold (Belgium) that plundered the African continent? It was England and the West Indies Trading Company that colonized the country, right? As I recall, Portugal got quite rich trading African slaves. Isn't China heavily invested in Africa? If we are only talking Bangladesh, aren't there 55,000,000 people living on less than $200 per year? Are they fighting for food, shelter, care, and education for the truly poor in Bangladesh, or do they want high paying, safe jobs for the chosen few? Unemployed Americans soon will not be afford to purchase clothes made there. Bring jobs home!

Go into camping mode...eat bison, venison or wild game meat. Try to stay away from radio active sea food. Good show. Try hunting for a change it is very pricey to have grown deer cut up by the local butcher/meat shop these days.

US Military Industrial Complex has been expanding for years throughout Africa and globally. ...The west will use all in it's power to maniupulate the information it spreads to the masses. They feed liberals their slop of lies, convincing them that the opposite of the truth is reality. Abby Martin spread those lies on the March 4 bts show falsely accusing Russia of 'invading' and 'occupying' Crimea. Tell the truth.

  


And it seems that she now spends way too much time on her appearance - why a completely different look for each episode?

America, the new or a johhny come lately, empire, has only one strategy within Africa, and worldwide, to dominate the primary resources of that country, and try to desist the African, leaders from doing any business with China.
So they can have their corporation hands all over the resources to make America, richer and help them buy more weapons, therefore, oppressing the world and it's peoples. It is tyrannical in intent and they intend to make it impossible for freedom to exist anywhere on the globe, only despotic dictatorship supported by the great American ideal, robbery and suppresion

US Military Industrial Complex has been expanding for years throughout Africa and globally. One approach has been to infiltrate and partner with subversive elements who represent the interests of western domination causing disruption, instability, and chaos. Venezuela is one example, Ukraine another. The west will use all in it's power to maniupulate the information it spreads to the masses. They feed liberals their slop of lies, convincing them that the opposite of the truth is reality. Abby Martin spread those lies on the March 4 bts show falsely accusing Russia of 'invading' and 'occupying' Crimea. Tell the truth.

Great coverage of the water privatization travesty, labor issues and US military aid to African despotic regimes and war lords. Even though I categorically reject the periodic forays into white male-blaming-identit y-politics Martin's BTS is still one of the best news shows on the Internet. So a qualified thank you and keep up the good work!

Thank you all the laborers, workers who make our clothing, machines, electronics... The best thing I can do is to not be wasteful (filing up landfills, pollute xyz...) buying less but paying more for these people...

Time to acknowledge the Africa/ Congo wars for the benefits of military and unsustainable consumerism... It seems US army is now solely out to use "humanitarian&q uot; excuses to make profits for itself.

Tim e to be more enlightened and save our home ecology (communities, forests, other species...) from the self-destructions habits of 20th cen "institutionali zed" habits that only give Negative returns!

From factory farms to clothing sweatshops Capital more often than not seeks to hide the production process from the consumer. The product is alienated from its own production in the mind of the 1st world consumer. Through a cultivated willful ignorance hamburgers and clothes appear as if by magic in grocery stores and malls. A Maoist 3rd world vs 1st world revolution often makes more sense than the proletariat vs. capitalist paradigm. To which I would add the factory farming related issues as a sort of 4th world. What can folks in the 1st world do? There must be something more than just voting with our dollars.
