Come one, come all!.....Step right up and buy your ticket for a ride on the splendiferous, phantasmagoric, miraculous, "Trans-Pacific Partnership"
TPP is not some sort of futuristic, flying machine, but yet another trade scam coming at us like a volcanic eruption straight out of hell.
This thing is a "partnership" of, by, and for global corporations -- similar to NAFTA, only much, much, much bigger and far more destructive both to the middle class and to our people's sovereignty.
Scott Walker is a symptom of a very cancerous political culture and very cancerous political system.
"First of all, this "problem" is not going to mean fk-all to the Republican base, because the Republican base is filled with crazoids, Bible-bangers, and people with short-wave radios for brains. All they know is that Walker knuckled all the people of whom The Base is terrified. The only way Walker's bone-deep dishonesty can hurt him is if the people who stoke the plutocratic engine of the party believe that it might make him a loser. So far, they seem quite happy with the way he's done business for them.
Next "Keystone XL" not a Pipeline but a multi-pronged approach to TRIPLE tar sand shipments into US.

Congress is set to return from its most recent recess and high on the list of special interests is reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank.

I have never, quite really, denied the existence of God. Moreso, I was, and am, unsure of it's nature. Those enlightened ones that can actually tell you that God was/is a "Him", or some long haired white dude that hung out with whores, the diseased, and the poor are truly more advanced than I. You see I, being religiously remedial (and likely a heathen), am aware of God's presence. I am of the mindset that when people look up to the sky for God that they are looking, perhaps, too far.
Another human being loses his life in a senseless shooting by a deranged person with a gun. Again, another notch in the bedpost of the NRA. How many more?
TPP: The profitability of our wealth-concentrating, planet-killing Oligarchs is NOT a matter of national security against China.
Bravo for trying to conflate the two, what with all the “terrorists threats from abroad” but it doesn’t hold any water.
Rather, the DEMOCRATS’ TPP is merely a matter of which party gets the resulting campaign contributions. But that isn’t going to stop Washington from using the corporate media (aka “ministry of misinformation”) to convince us of otherwise.
Obama= Deforestation=Extinction: Virgin forests in Southern US are being clear cut and burned for fuel.
Burning wood for fuel releases the carbon stored by the tree into the atmosphere.
Tell the UK: Southern Forests Aren't Fuel!
