    This tragedy is a repeat of what happened in NYC"s Greenwich village in 1912. There is a documentary on PBS about it called the "Great Triangle Shirt factory Fire". Anyone who advocated for better working conditions, even unionization were called socialists, progressives, liberals, communists, leftists, etc. 136 workers died when a fire broke out on an upper floor. An exit foor was locked and there was no key available.

    And yet there are powerful Americans who want to gut the safety laws and regulations that help prevent this kind of thing from happening in our country.

    So, in order to provide profits for Walmart, and other corporations that have sent American jobs overseas, we support unsafe sweatshops in other nations.

    But, I guess there are at least a few blessings here. These people who died at least had what could be called a "job." Or was it a form of slavery with the purpose of providing profits for others?

    It frightens me that this kind of thing is part of the Republican vision for America.
