    uhhhhh... what?

    so, the let-the-industry-regulate-itself bush administration is now unmasked as a don't-let-the-little-guy-upstage-the-big-guy administration. plus, at the expense of the health of the consumer. plus, in defiance of every level of the judiciary which has ruled.

    i guess the relationship between big corporate donors and the favors they get doesn't get much clearer than this.

    This has been going on for a long, long time. As the article states, it's about corporate America trying to dictate the rules of international trade. And, of course, saving themselves a penny or two in the process.
