You know what funny is that Obama is now having trouble getting the democrats in congress to go along with this.
This is just to ironic and to funny! LOL

Looking Up
They are showing TV ads in Oregon supporting this trade agreement. They are saying that it will help small businesses, to call our representatives to vote for this in Washington. They are showing successful Oregon products like Tillamook Cheese and Oregon wines and saying it will increase trade with these companies.

It was a pretty slick ad. Almost had me picking up the phone to call in support. Good thing I learn the truth from Rapture Forums, the average sheeple doesn't stand a chance.

The TPP would expand the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) "trade" pact model that has spurred massive U.S. trade deficits and job loss, downward pressure on wages, unprecedented levels of inequality and new floods of agricultural imports. The TPP not only replicates, but expands NAFTA's special protections for firms that offshore U.S. jobs. And U.S. TPP negotiators literally used the 2011 Korea FTA – under which exports have fallen and trade deficits have surged – as the template for the TPP.

That, Pebbles, is not the worst thing about the TPP. What is worse is that it will give legal protection to foreign multinationals while stripping the protection of the courts from American taxpayers. It is a major step toward world governance.
