TPP leak: Obama and Big Pharma raising price of leukemia drug from $2,500/mo. to $96,000/yr.

This from Campaign for America's Future:

nimblecivet's blog 1-29-15: 1) directed energy 2) the sad revolutionary

1)

What has truly astonished ourselves is that the mind could be so complex and malleable and adaptable and yet also so prone to constant blusters of ego, posturing, and yet also self-doubt and introspection, that soon this perspective will yield the one framework which we will use to plot out our revolutionary agenda.

We must analyze the flow of events as we would a pattern which can be matched by another, which will be a key to process actions in sequential coordination.

WVa ditches American History to teach it its way.

If the title doesn't make any sense, don't worry, I wrote it that way on purpose to draw light on West Virginia's attempts to rewrite American history to appease its right wing.

Go figure folks. Junk science has its equal, junk history.

Democrat Claire McCaskill Happily Votes for Keystone XL Using Fox News Talking Points

In case you just missed it, Democratic Senator from Missouri Claire McCaskill just voted to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline in the face of a Presidential veto. Her office is more than happy to regurgitate Fox News talking points if asked why. I was told on the phone her decision was based on oil getting to market and job creation. THIS IS WHY DEMOCRATS LOSE ELECTIONS LIKE THE LAST TWO MIDTERM DISASTERS IN A ROW! THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T GET PEOPLE TO VOTE!

Traders ordered to increase price per barrel as their employers, the Big Banks, grow concerned over dirty energy firms’ ability to make their loan and lease payments.

Supply and Demand?, HAH!! You’d have better luck trying to find evidence of a real “free market” for something in the US.

Anyway, the big banks got us under their thumb when it comes to oil. Their traders set the price for oil while their loan departments let dirty energy firms borrow all the money they could ever want and the financing departments at these same banks lease practically every hard asset a dirty energy operator might ever use.

TPP

One of the reasons president Obama advocates TPP is to coerce improved environmental standards and human rights

However if it was marvelous and wonderful it would be on a TV commercial instead of being a classified secret.

Barac Obama is THE worst Environmental President EVER in US history.

enuf said.

Not even GW Bush let big oil run amok toxifying huge swaths of America with fracking. And it doesn't stop there with Obama. Climate collapse science has never been more advanced and clear than under this most recent president but time and again he facilitates the degradation of our Commons.

The examples of disregard for the environment go on and on with Obama

Obama rushing through 4 MASSIVE logging incursions into the Peoples’ Tongass National Forest.

One of America’s most precious and endangered habitats is under siege — again.

Democrat Herb Kohl and Scot Walker sticking Taxpayers for $220 million for new Bucks arena.

Cold hard cash at the expense of the Taxpayer, the great bipartisan topic all our existing parties an agree on.

(the Milwaukee Bucks suck)

It looks like $300 million will be cut from the University system.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
