Jared quotes the TPA: "No provision of any trade agreement entered into under section 3(b)..." I can't find the text of the TPA online to see if there are other sections under which trade treaties can be made, which would render this protection inoperative. If we can't read the text, we can't know anything. "Trust, but verify."

Just Monday, the WTO over-ruled a US law on "country of origin" labeling for meat: http://www.usnews.com/news/business/articles/2015...

No. I've known Jared for half his life, had many meals and hikes with him, etc., and never saw him smoke.

Under the TPP, I can sue any signing country with laws against murder, which would deprive me of the profits from my planned chain of hit man shops. Now I won't even have to start my business; I can just sue and make my money in court. Thanks, TPP!

Having lived in Colorado all but seven of the last 45 years, and being a wilderness guide who is outside a great deal, I'm positive there's far less sunshine then there was back in 1970, at least in the Front Range. They can define "sunny day" in all kinds of clever ways to cover it up, but there are far more days with huge clouds of obscuring the sun most of the day. I bet there's only two thirds of the sunny hours there were back then.

Here in Hawaii, a long time resident told me there are over a hundred less days of trade winds a year now. That's part of what makes Hawaii a paradise, less hot and humid than many other tropical places.

The climate is already greatly degraded in my life. Thanks fossil corps, propagandists and deniers of all kinds.

Oh boy! If the TPP passes, I won't have to do all the work to establish my multinational chain of hit-man shops. I can just sue any country with laws against murder and make big bucks! Hooray for laissez-faire capitalism!

The climate is warming 10-100 times faster than ever in over 65 million years: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/todays-... It will be 50-100 times faster IF fossils like you keep us on the course we're on.

Modern smartphones can replace a camera, phone, radio, CD player, TV, alarm clock, magazines, newspapers, many books, etc. I have a solar charger about a foot square which can easily power mine. I no longer need an "entertainment room" and watch movies on the beach often.

IF this or NAFTA were about "free trade" they could be written as simply as, "All trade tariffs will be reduced by 10% of their present level per year until they are zero." But both are THOUSANDS of pages of special deals and over-rides of existing laws, including Article 27 of Mexico's Constitution in the case of NAFTA. That's why the Zapatatistas revolted in Mexico on the first day of NAFTA, Jan 1, 1994, saying it was a "death sentence for the poor."

The "representative" part is really "misrepresentative." That's why Congress recently had an 8% approval rating. The "democratic" part -ballot initiatives- is how Colorado got, among other things in the last 20 yrs: the country's first legalized marijuana (Amendment 64), the country's strongest ban on lobbyists giving politicians "gifts" (41), the country's first Renewable Energy Mandate (37), campaign finance reform (27), increased K-12 funding (23), Background Checks for buyers at Gun Shows (22), Medical Marijuana (20), cleaner hog farms (14) and Term Limits (12).

You obviously don't know much about our forefathers. For example:

"The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government." -Washington

“Each generation has a right to choose for itself the form of government it believes most promotive of its happiness.” -Jefferson

“The People were, in fact, the fountain of all power, and by resorting to them, all difficulties were got over. They could alter constitutions as they pleased.” -Madison

“What I want is to get done what the People would have me do. The problem for me is how to find out what that is exactly.” -Lincoln

It's too bad you associate with wolves. Most of us are people, with compassion for other people. Nobody has ever been eaten or imprisoned by ballot initiative. "Representative" government imprisoned some 110,000 Japanese-Americans in concentration camps during WWII, hundreds of Communists and their friends who wouldn't name them (including some of the best in the entertainment industry) during the McCarthy era, and millions for smoking pot, for 77 years so far.

Pay attention to facts instead of old dead theories written by the wolves eating our future.
