An example of We're Fucked.

Country-of-Origin (COOL) Meat Labeling Decision 
 
    "When a popular, commonsense law like COOL is declared trade illegal by an anonymous tribunal of the World Trade Organization, you have to wonder what U.S. law is next.
Today's WTO ruling on COOL aims to prevent American consumers from knowing where their meat was born, raised and processed. This is a sad day for consumer choice and the independent livestock producers of this country. As one neighbor put it: 'This is fraud, what do the meat packers have to hide?'
 
    "When trade agreements like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the WTO undermine U.S. laws like COOL, it becomes very clear how the rights of citizens to govern themselves have been traded away. This WTO ruling shows the degree to which international corporations now control our economy and political process through undemocratic non-transparent trade agreements.
 
    "If Congress 'fast tracks' the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal that is currently in negotiation, we will see even more actions by trans-national corporations to use the WTO to overturn democratically enacted laws like COOL."
( From Grass Range, Montana, rancher Gilles Stockton statement on behalf of the Western Organization of Resource Councils. Stockton also serves on the USDA Secretary of Agriculture's Animal Health Advisory Committee - May 18, 2015.)

Quoting biblical references, she claims the West Bank was given to the Israeli people by god.

Time to take this land away from them the same way it was taken from its owners in '47. #givebacktheland

Congratulations! You just bought a new Chevy, GMC, or Cadillac. You really like driving it. And it's purchased, not leased, and all paid off with no liens, so it's all yours... isn't it? Well, no, ...

Among the signatories are activist, sci-fi author and Guardian tech columnist Cory Doctorow. “Democracies make their laws in public, not in smoke-filled rooms,” Doctorow wrote. “If TPP’s backers truly believed that they were doing the people’s work, they’d have invited the people into the room. The fact that they went to extreme, unprecedented measures to stop anyone from finding out what was going on – even going so far as to threaten Congress with jail if they spoke about it – tells you that this is something being done to Americans, not for Americans.”

And Senator Elizabeth Warren has upped her attack on why no one can see the text of the proposed agreement before the President signs it.

The 🔫 is OK. The 💉 is OK. But Apple won't let me use the 👋 (that should be middle finger extended emoji). WTFSM⁈ Guns and bloody needles are OK, but flipping someone off is... what? Bad?

No idea. Whatever the company making the accusations want unless they are prepared to get an attorney and fight them.

A new flying car concept made its debut at the recent AERO show in Friedrichshafen, Germany and it may well be the vehicle that actually makes the flying car dream a reality. The Carplane is backed both by the EU and the German state of Lower Saxony and according to the company's website is “the ...

And the great GOP experiment rolls on... 😞

HB 2391 allows wide-scale conversion of state jobs covered by civil service protections to unclassified, unprotected jobs. The bill applies to all new-hires and for existing state employees to get a promotion or advancement, they must give up their civil service job protection. Unclassified employees will be at the mercy of their managers with little if any recourse to arbitrary firings. Patronage and political pay-offs will become the norm. The Governor signed this bill on May 14.
