With the way politics in this country is going during recent years (thanks U.S. Supreme Court and that insane citizens united decision that says $$$ is free speech and corporations are people) it would be no surprise at all if the U.S. House held a vote in the middle of the night and passed that God forsaken TPP bill that President Obama has sold out for to the big money interests.
Think about it for a moment ... the REPUBLICANS are ON OBAMA'S SIDE on this bill?
THAT IS THE ULTIMATE RED FLAG right there!!
It's simply amazing that these clowns in the U.S. Congress can't accept the will of the American people and just give up on this piece of shit trade deal that will do nothing but ship more jobs over seas and give corporations even more power to do whatever it is they want.
It bothers me to see this country's political leaders being played like puppets on a string by the Koch Brothers and others of their disgusting ilk.
When will it end?
Will it ever end?
To quote movie character Forrest Gump "Stupid is as stupid does."
These politicians are definitely stupid if they pass "fast track" authority for the TPP.
In fact, they are insane because one of the definitions of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
Hmmm . . . remember NAFTA and then CAFTA, well here comes SHAFTA and that means saying goodbye to decent paying jobs as they are sent away to be performed by folks in third world nations doing the work for pennies (literally pennies) an hour!
This is the year 2015 and that is despicable!
Even television commercial are toting the new "Gilded Age" that America seems to be trending toward as more and more "bosses" dressed in 19th century style clothing appear on the TV screen while some oaf slaves away at their job in the background.
It just reeks of the old way of doing things and that way failed and went away.
Corporate America sucks!
But these robber barons of the 21st century want to take us back in time 200 or more years it seems to a time when suffering was abound and people worked for starvation wages.
Hopefully the American people will burn up the telephone lines to their representatives in the U.S. House and tell them NO WAY TPP once again as they did recently and this crap will fail again and go away forever.
I doubt it will ever go away, but there is always the hope that it will.
We can only hope so.
The future of the United States depends on it failing in Congress.
