TPP, because you can too!

You too can become a prosperous owner (manager) of southeast asian labor. Profits are sure to come your way using proven race-to-the-bottom (expenditure lessening) strategies. Get on board with the TPP or get left out of this next century's economic prosperity.

EVERY Iraqi killed by U.S. since 2003 is a murder victim.

We have perfected murdering innocents on foreign soil and are seeing the results of bringing this mindset back home.


Fatal police shootings in 2015 approaching 400 nationwide

The three are among at least 385 people shot and killed by police nationwide during the first five months of this year, more than two a day, according to a Washington Post analysis. That is more than twice the rate of fatal police shootings tallied by the federal government over the past decade, a count that officials concede is incomplete.

“These shootings are grossly under­reported,” said Jim Bueermann, a former police chief and president of the Washington-based Police Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving law enforcement. “We are never going to reduce the number of police shootings if we don’t begin to accurately track this information.”

A national debate is raging about police use of deadly force, especially against minorities. To understand why and how often these shootings occur, The Washington Post is compiling a database of every fatal shooting by police in 2015, as well as of every officer killed by gunfire in the line of duty. The Post looked exclusively at shootings, not killings by other means, such as stun guns and deaths in police custody.

Using interviews, police reports, local news accounts and other sources, The Post tracked more than a dozen details about each killing through Friday, including the victim’s race, whether the person was armed and the circumstances that led to the fatal encounter. The result is an unprecedented examination of these shootings, many of which began as minor incidents and suddenly escalated into violence.

Here is what needs to change

At an all employee meeting at my place of employment (a multinational conglomerate) the following was stated by the company CEO (slightly paraphrased because I did not record it)

"There is a new class of investor who does not care about employees, does not care about our families, does not care about what the company is doing, does not care about the environment, and does not care about our local communities. They only care about short term gain on our stock price. We need to do everything in our power to give them their desires. It is essential that every employee at our various companies maintain the same thought process as our investors. Their desires trump all."

This is what the fight is about.
