    There's a lot of hype on the TPP.  We have bilateral investment treaties or free trade agreements with almost 60 countries that have these same provisions.  So far we haven't lost our sovereignty, and we haven't changed a single rule or regulation because of them.

    Also, the Senate is not taking the TPP up as far as I know.  It's still being negotiated.

    History will be kind to us because we will write it.

      but,so far, they're small changes, and perhaps they go unnoticed.  Do you remember "dolphin-safe" tuna?  Canned fish products for sale in the US can no longer be marked as "dolphin-safe" because of a lawsuit brought under one of these free-trade agreements.

      OF COURSE the New Right is wrong - but that doesn't make WRONG the new RIGHT!
