BARF! Protestors Puke at TransPacific Partnership Talks

 

Barf! Puke! Vomit! The top secret TransPacific Partnership talks in Leesburg, Virginia made the Biotic Barf Brigade sick, so they spewed their outrage regurgitating at the Lansdown Hotel on Thursday where the free trade talks were being held. Frankly, the hotel’s carpet would make me throw up no matter what event was on. At first I thought the huge lime green stripes down the purple rug were actually the Biotic Barf Brigade’s stomach contents. Seriously, time to redecorate.

The timely chymesters were evicted by sickened security. Later security had to remove actress Q’orianka Kilcher who helped  deliver

over 350,000 protest signatures to an official with the US Trade Representatives negotiating the controversial Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement.

Kilcher was arrested for trespassing. Before her arrest she stated:

The Trans Pacific Partnership would be devastating for people around the world and it is being negotiated in complete secrecy to hide the content, because these agreements would never see the light of day if US citizens and congress were allowed to see what is being proposed in our names. While hundreds of corporate advisors have access to the information contained within these documents, the American public, the media and even members of congress do not. This sort of secrecy is highly undemocratic and is a complete disregard of all the systems of checks and balances established by the U.S. Constitution to avoid exactly this sort of thing.

The Biotic Barf Brigade and petition delivery were part of a week long series of protests and activism opposing the TPP, who claim that the trade agreement would imperil access to generic drugs in Third World and developing nations, weaken food safety regulations, and destroy natural resources. Proponents state that the TPP would protect international copyrights and intellectual property. Protestors are also disgusted by the secrecy surrounding the talks.

Great protest idea. Too bad the show won’t matter to the evil bastards inside.

Bush the first negotiated NAFTA – but it took Clinton to get it past the Democrats in congress.

W negotiated the Panama, Columbia and South Korea sellouts deals. Obama pushed them through the Senate.

Now Obama is negotiating the worst one of all – oh, yeah, and he just announced that he’s going to use executive orders to enact the internet regulations that citizen action successfully stopped.

On another thread, I was accused of being a paid troll for pointing out this kind of shit. Until I am banned, you stupid fake leftie Obamabots can kiss my fucking ass. As long as we have a DINO president and I can type, I’ll be pointing out every betrayal.

BTW “you stupid fake leftie Obamabots” applies only to those who actually fit that description. You know who you are.

Finger down throat probably.
Thing is if the TPP is done, there won’t BE any constitutional protections at all if I understand this sellout correctly.
Even Rome did not willingly open hoer gates to the Visigoths.
The TPP is just an invitation for multinationals to rob and pillage with no sovereign law applicable.

No wonder Mitt keeps sticking his foot in mouth, Oilbomber’s been SUCH a good boy for the corporations/banks/MIC why would they want to get rid of him?

Chug a two-liter bottle of water mixed with mustard and some green food coloring. Swish your belly around a bit, then start wretching. Works like a charm!

(FYI, ipecac is difficult to procure nowadays. Concern over eating disorders. We’ve heard it isn’t super effective anyhow, and leaves you feeling queasy for quite a while.)

Thanks for the coverage!
