Thread: Corporatists bending people over...literally.

    Default Corporatists bending people over...literally.

    Embarrassed to say that I just read about the experience of Kathryn Bolkovac for the first time after seeing the film The Whistleblower. I'd post a link, but I'm a new user, so Google it if you aren't familiar with what happened. Long story short: woman discovers that a PMC hired by the UN is helping operate a human trafficking racket in post-war Bosnia, cover-up ensues, everyone involved gets off scot-free, the end, not-so-happily-ever-after. Our tax dollars hard at work...SMH. Scary times we're living in. Tragic to think where this is taking our country.

    Yeah, watched the movie the other day. Sad to think this is only one of the MANY things being perpetrated across the globe.

    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    I'm quite aware of what it means. My error seems to have been in not spelling out precisely what "human trafficking" entails in most cases, including this one.
