The utter imbecility of the US media when it comes to 'free trade' is illustrated in Sunday's New York Times editorial. The Times supports bad trade deals as enthusiastically as they support bad wars. Right now, they are fearful a Democratic candidate might stop destroying our domestic economy. So they are warning them both to support 'free trade' or they will be smeared, attacked and destroyed by the US media owners. Who happen to be people who are working day and night to destroy our nation's sovereignty. Also, we get to talk about Japan, China and how the dynamics of international trade and finance are now changing gears. The US is eventually going to fade as the world's most important destination for exports. This will be due to us going bankrupt.
