About Me

My photo
For me it is All About Being of Service & Living the Life of the Give-Away....

Being Mindful of those who are unable to speak for themselves; our Non-Two Legged Relations and the Future Generations.

It's about walking on the Canka Luta Waste Behind the Cannunpa and the ceremonies.

It's about Mindfulness and Respect. It's about Honesty and owning up to my foibles.

It's about: Mi Takuye Oyacin

Obama & TPP

Obama indicates he is going to push for passage of the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) during the lame duck session after the November elections. We can't let this happen. Nearly every public interest organization in the U.S., including GMO Free USA, is against the TPP for various reasons. In other words, this corporate empowerment deal between the USA and 11 other nations is rotten to the core. THE TPP MUST BE STOPPED.

One example that will affect us all: A provision of the TPP deal called Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) would allow corporations to sue any nation bound by the TPP for potential future lost profits as a result of national or local regulations. For instance, if Monsanto determined that a GMO crop ban, such as that in Jackson County, Oregon, is blocking potential profits due to lost seed and pesticide sales, it can take its case before an international corporate court where corporate lawyers are the judges. Who do you think those judges will rule in favor of? Monsanto, of course. Then, Jackson County's GMO ban would be struck down. The ruling is final and can’t be challenged in our national courts. This ISDS threat would cause a chilling effect, causing federal and local governments from passing regulations that protect the public/environment, but impedes corporate profits. HELLO, GMO & PESTICIDE TAKEOVER. GOODBYE, COMMUNITY RIGHTS & NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY. That's just one of many problems with the TPP.

Call and email your U.S. Senators and Representative and tell them to reject the TPP. Find your elected officials here: https://salsa4.salsalabs.com/o/51225/getLocal.jsp
