    I have been thinking about this topic ever since Pat Robertson made his asinine comment regarding Haiti.



    How the Hell do you make a deal with the Devil? What is the origin of this ridiculous notion? Surely there aren't people who believe this can be done, after all, it is 2010 now. One would think this sort of thinking ended 500 years ago, but apparently not over at CBN.



    If I make a deal with the Devil, do I need a notary? Lawyer? What if the Devil cheats me? What action can I take?

    I was wondering about that myself. How do you get in touch with him in the first place? Does he have a website or a Facebook page?

    If you sued Satan, would he have to get a Devils advocate?

    I think the people that are best equipped to make a deal with the devil are the same people that negotiate prices at yard sales.

    If Satan were to become embarrassed would he end up with these on his face?

    Actually, the way to deal with the devil (for Haitians, anyway) is to go to work in the "prosperous, healthy" (according to Pat Robertson) Dominican Republic that doesn&#39;t deal with the devil, because they are the devil.



    It&#39;s known as sugar slavery.



    Sugar cane workers live in what are called bateys, small settlements of a few hundred people dotted among the cane fields. The Vicinis showed us one of the bateys. It appeared to have plumbing and electricity; the people seemed happy, and there was a shop, and a school.



    But just down the road, we came across another batey, where other Vicini workers lived, that was not on the official tour. No running water, no electricity, too little food. The old or infirm looked like they were starving. One old man told us he hadn&#39;t eaten in four days. Children told us they planted cane in Vicini fields for three pesos a row. It takes a half day to plant a row.



    The company says it doesn&#39;t hire children, but that it can&#39;t always control what unscrupulous subcontractors do. And it said it is trying to improve the lives of the workers, with an ambitious plan to build hundreds of new houses.



    Along a roadside near the batey, we found people in some desperate straits: One man in his 50s was working on a Sunday, all day, to earn the equivalent of about $5, some of which he sent home to his children in Haiti, who he said were starving. And that&#39;s the problem: the reason these people work for so little is that there&#39;s even less where they came from. They&#39;re out of options, and without the legal rights of Dominican citizens, they&#39;re effectively voiceless.



    Under terms of the Central American Free Trade Agreement, the U.S. government is slowly increasing the amount of sugar that can be imported from the Dominican Republic. The members of Congress told the Dominican government that they would need to improve conditions for the workers. According to a Reuters report, the Dominican government told them to stop interfering.

    Here is Wiki&#39;s attempt to explain it, but I don&#39;t trust Wiki because idiots can edit it.
