News in this episode:
Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday asked the chief trade representative for the United States to turn over the full text of a proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement. The 12-nation pact, which could soon come before Congress, has been negotiated in secret but with input from corporations that stand to profit on the deal.
In a letter to United States Trade Representative Michael Froman, Sanders called it “troubling” and “unacceptable” that the only sources for Congress to assess what would be the largest global trade deal in history are a few leaked documents. “It is incomprehensible to me that the leaders of major corporate interests who stand to gain enormous financial benefits from this agreement are actively involved in the writing of the TPP while, at the same time, the elected officials of this country, representing the American people, have little or no knowledge as to what is in it,” Sanders said in the letter. “In my view, this is simply unacceptable.”
Talk about the part of the deal where the companies can sue the countries…
There have been over 20 earthquakes in the last few days in the Dallas, TX area, specifically near Irvine, TX.
Ranging from 2.5 to 3.9, they have not caused any major damage, yet, but they all also seem to be centered VERY near the Old Texas Stadium Site.
This is an area that has historically not had any earthquake issues, and, yet, here we have a large amount of them, and they seem to be rampingup.
As of the time of this recording, in fact, there were 7 reported in 7 hours.
It’s interesting to me that in the past week’s news it was being reported–and I’ve had a couple of friends in the drilling and fracking industries tell me–that they are scaling back operations due to the drop in oil prices. So now I’m thinking… they’re not pumping as much water into the ground for fracking… and we’ve had this many quakes in North TX, in one day.
