If you don't know about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), it's high time that you learn and pass on your knowledge to others. In short, it is a plan by the super rich to get enormously richer by robbing us 99 percent. And so far they've been given carte blanche to screw us to the limit by our corrupt Congress and President Obama.

Wednesday, January 28 2015 Republicans in Congress want to work with the Obama administration to fast-track the passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The TPP is the largest—and worst—trade deal you’ve never heard of, having been devised in secret by representatives of some of the world’s largest corporations. It’s so big and has the potential to do so much damage, it’s been likened to “NAFTA on steroids.” http://youtu.be/3O_Sbbeqfdw Robert Reich takes on the Trans-Pacific Partnership MoveOn.o... more »

World peace, an end to poverty, and less garbage

Day after Christmas at Las Penitas beach Were it up to me to pick a project for Central America, it might be garbage. In countries with per-capita GDPs somewhere around $4,000, sub-standard education systems and virtually zero social services, I admit that garbage is not the most pressing problem. But it's the kind of project that is wide open to all ages and classes, in urban and rural areas alike. It provides instant gratification, and possibly economic stimulus as well if you pay attention to which types of garbage have value and setting up side projects along the way. ... more »

In Nunavut civil matters cross examination may occur before affidavits served

James C Morton at Morton's Musings - 9 hours ago
Marion v KIA 2015 NUCJ 6: 1. The plaintiff urges the Court to impose a general rule that all affidavits must be filed prior to cross-examinations and seeks to place the onus on the party seeking to vary from this process to make a case pursuant to Rule 381(6). In my view this is not the correct approach. In my view the correct approach is to maintain the general right to cross-examine and to impose terms or conditions only if necessary.

*Joe Romm assumes what he has to prove -- and his assumption is wrong* *As we all know, ANY weather event proves global warming. Global warming is unfalsifiable and is, as such, a religious faith, not a scientific finding.

The first month of 2015 is ending, various ceasefire treaties are being forgotten, and the meaningless Ukrainian civil war is gradually getting restarted. When I wrote about the battles of the Donetsk airport in October 2014, I was implicitly assuming it would take days or at most weeks before Novorussia would get the Sergei Prokofiev International Airport, or whatever would be left of it. *Please don't allow kids to watch this 22-minute video.* Instead, it took more than three months.

There are two types of people whose testimony automatically has extra value when it comes to Israel and the Jews. one: The non-Jew. The objective outsider. two: The journalist.

These parasites will continue to proliferate and raise costs to all until the Act is abolished.” *- Peter Cresswell, 1996 Last weekend I stumbled across a few things back from the days before the Resource Management Act ... more »

Syriza's Interesting Allies

Phil at All That Is Solid ... - 1 day ago
By their friends shall ye know them? This old adage has got some folks feeling a bit uncomfortable as the new Syriza government apparently cosies up to Mother Russia. This is by no means a new thing. Last year Alexis Tsipras provided Putin's interventions in Ukraine with some political cover. Interesting friends of Syriza are by no means confined to the Kremlin, however. Someone else saying warm words is Peter Spence, economics correspondent for *The Telegraph*.

Did you hear the one about the novelist and the PM? [updated]

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 1 day ago

Did any of the commentariat really have something to say? Or did they just feel the need to open their mouth -- and had no other target, or targets, on which to lash their tongue? So those opposed to the PM targeted the prize-winner. And those in his favour targeted her. And no-one in the end was any the wiser about anything much at all, least of all about any of the subjects raised by the prize-winner, or in the PM’s re... more »
