O.k. folk, I am putting on my serious hat and bringing up something I feel we all need to know about, the Trans Pacific Partnership. :( Personally I feel this will be a dangerous move by governments, dangerous to a lot of freedoms and such we have now. But too few people seem to be talking about it in the main stream media. So I am putting up this little link for folks to read. Let me know what you all think.

Yep, by Big Business for Big Business.

Congress-critters are usually bought and paid for already. Doesn't matter which party. If memory serves, most of them are millionaires so they are all for said treat, since it serves their social class.

The EU/UK/US version was in the news a while back.

Yea, but it's still worth a shot. The other option is to riot, but that's assuming people will even listen to that

The power-elites have gotten very good at manipulating the masses. Like slowly boiling a frog. If you do it slowly enough, the frog never even knows what's happening until it's to late. :x

There's substantial opposition to this agreement here in the states. In fact, at least some people here are finally getting a clue about what's known as "class interest." The failure of the Comcast/Time-Warner merger is perhaps another precursor of genuine pushback against rule-by-billionaires that has prevailed here for the past 30 years.

I wouldn't be surprised if TPP bit the dust, only to be revived as several different proposals each containing some elements of the original. That seems to be the counter-strategy of big business these days when popular opposition gets in the way of writing their most profitable and nefarious practices into law.

Yes, this is a significant matter and definitely bears watching. I've signed about a hundred petitions against it already. What may turn out to be the most significant thing about it is the sponsors' inability to shove it down our throats.

Wasn't this already the case? I can't remember where I read it, but parts of the TPP are supposed to be from earlier failed treaty and legislation attempts.
