  1. Twitter-Session Digest for: May 13, 2010 #

  2. There're good & bad globalists. The US trade deficit was created by global predators preying on middle- & low-class Americans & others. #

  3. Bad "Free Trade" Agreements (FTAs) = US trade deficit. FTAs = anti-environment & worker safety & rights: evil exploitation/lower standards. #

  4. Some people avoid mention of the deliberate lowering of environmental and worker safety and rights standards when discussing trade deficits. #

  5. If NAFTA had required environmental & worker laws at America's level at the time, the US would not have bled jobs & Mexico would have risen. #

  12. Def. Min. Ehud Barak, Int. Min. Yishai & For. Min. Lieberman aren't your friends. "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" (Amos 3:3) #

  13. Yishai & Lieberman to Pub. Sec. Min. Aharonovitch: police will continue destroying Arab East Jerusalem homes. Fascists! #
