Full Text of Trans-Pacific Partnership Finally Released


By Activist Post

Today, the website of New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade released the massive, full text of the ostensibly secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

At the bottom there is a link to a zip file containing all chapters or one can read and save each chapter PDF individually. The lengthy text contains a lot of business newspeak. However, various chapters deal with history’s biggest free trade move yet, pharmaceutical industries, business conduct in third-world and developing countries, agriculture, state-owned enterprises and designated monopolies (interesting terminology), government procurement, competition policies, and e-commerce.

In October, WikiLeaks claimed that they had a leaked copy of the full text and it contained information on trade secrets and top-down control of the Internet that are indeed found in chapter 18.

It is referred to as the “Agreement,” although most of the world’s people have never had any say at all in the decisions foisted on them below.

              Are you stupid? There are these new things called FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. They are really cool because you can eat them and they have VITAMINS in them. They also have minerals and fiber and other good things.

              Now, most of the OTC items are garbage anyways and little better than snake oil because they arent reviewed by any accredited 3rd party scientific analysis groups. Please dont make the false argument that they are and it says right on the bottle. The guys at Enron tried they same thing and said that some people in their mail room told them what they were doing was legal.

              So, if you are relying on the government for your health then you probably are not very healthy to begin with and number two should look to the indians on their reservations and ask them how all of that worked out.

              Get a clue.
