The TPP is a large, secret trade agreement that is being negotiated with many countries in East Asia and South America. It takes but a few minutes to read the whole story, and I suggest it's worthwhile to do so. If TPP is half as bad as Grayson says, it's bad indeed. Too bad that we are not allowed to read it for ourselves, but, hey, we're living in the days of open government. For those having real interest, I suggest starting with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Pacific_Strategic_Economic_Partnership.
