    is your only chink in the secrecy, so I'd suggest commenting instead of complaining as being the most productive thing you can do to address the matter.

      ...is to NOT play the status quo's game, and do whatever I can, personally, to apply pressure to the Inverted Totalitarian asshats that think they're going to shove this down the throats of the citizens of this country without a fight. (And, that includes utilizing some personal skills/assets, politically, that permit me to be a bit more persuasive than most.)

      For all intents and purposes, there is virtually no real input being facilitated by our government to the 99.99999% of the U.S. population, as far as this issue's concerned. And, posting a diary and purporting otherwise (both in the diary and here in the comments), is just more of the same game-playing.

      "Let's play their game, even though we don't know much about what's going on, let alone the salient facts of the matter~ And, more than likely, we never will!"

      If that mentality isn't ass-backwards, I don't know what is!

      What part of THIS, "Trans-Pacific Partnership Will Remove What’s Left Of American Democracy," don't you understand?

        This is a good example of what I call "misdirected hostility" that is common on DK.   Please note that in posting a notice that appeared today in the Federal Register, I'm trying to inform the DK community of a pertinent event concerning TPP.   As a result, I don't understand your need to frame your position in the manner of an attack against me under the circumstances.    I'm not here promoting TPP and nothing about that informs my motivations for posting this diary.
