Green Shadow Cabinet joins fight against Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement


The Green Shadow Cabinet includes nearly 100 prominent scientists, community and labor leaders, physicians, cultural workers, veterans, and more, and provides an ongoing opposition and alternative voice to the dysfunctional government in Washington D.C. Today we will be joined by Richard McIntyre who is the U.S. Trade Representative for the Green Shadow Cabinet. He will discuss the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement which the Obama administration is currently negotiating in order to enter the United States in the trade agreement. Critics have blasted TPP "as a secretive, multi-national trade agreement that threatens to extend restrictive intellectual property (IP) laws across the globe and rewrite international rules on its enforcement."

The new Superman film "Man of Steel" has been getting a lot of ink in terms of its successful marketing to seniors. However, Daisy Deadhead has some thoughts on the pro military propaganda promoted by "Man of Steel".

Two weeks ago, Occupy The Microphone reported that there are allegations that South Carolina paid a ransom to hackers not to sell the personal data of South Carolinians, which was stolen when they breached the computers at South Carolina's Department of Revenue. Governor Haley has neither confirmed nor denied paying the ransom deferring questions to investigating law enforcement agencies. Greenville Online is reporting that instances of hackers locking computer systems and demanding ransoms to release the data have been growing. Jenny Shearer, spokesperson for the FBI, said that since 2002 victims who have claimed losses approaching $1 Million have filed almost 3,000 complaints.
