Trade Officials Sign the TPP But It's Still Up to Lawmakers to Reject It via @EFF http://ow.ly/XUVSi #WakeUPAmerica #NoLubeFucked
Top officials of countries involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) are convening in New Zealand today to sign the final agreement. But really this ceremony is just a formality. We knew since November, from the day they announced a completed deal and made the text public shortly thereafter, that they would do this. These officials have not been accountable to the public.

Introduction
I am not a hero, possess no fortune, haven’t changed the course of mankind in any way.

I am unaware of any whose life has been permanently altered by knowing me, and for the most part I know nothing about their lives today.

On the other hand, I am no serial killer, thief, dictator, malingerer, or miscreant. I am not in jail or institution. Some were sure I would be.

I am not dead. Bets were surely placed on how long Id last.

Mine is a story the world could probably do without, but for me, it is one that must be told.
