    It seems like he's starting to say something and then, realizing it might be seen as unsavory, he's trying to change it to something else.

    ... 95% of life is settled if you are born in America.
    So, compared to this, then, compared to the devastating living and working conditions of these "girls," Americans have it better, so that 95% of our lives are "settled." OK.

    But then,

    ... what we have is unique and fortunately it is so special we are sharing it with the world.
    So are we sharing it with the world in a factory like this in China? Are we sharing the free enterprise system with China by buying our way into its oppressed, overpopulated, desperate labor market and providing terrible jobs and working conditions?

    Or is it that 95% of American's lives are settled by virtue of our labor laws and Bill of Rights?

    Or is it that 95% of American's lives are settled by their being able to exploit immigrant labor here in the United States, exploiting U.S. workers who aren't fortunate enough to have been born here.

    I wish someone would ask him to explain what he meant.
