I don't even know where to start.
Please don't start. In fact finish it finally, please. Nobody here cares about your conspiracy theories. Even if you think it is true, nobody cares. We will suffer and die stupid, and you should be fine with that.

Pinkman,

Bluntly, we're not out of the woods, we're the turkey and its a few days before Thanksgiving.

I don't even know where to start.

No, they have not given up on anything, we're dreaming if we fall for their trick.

Fast Track is six years and multiple bad agreements are already there.. They have already been signed.

We've been lied to so much we don't know truth when we see it, we've been brainwashed into thinking its fake news. Read up on what regulatory capture, no, state capture looks like. State meaning country.

And GATS, and ISDS and many similar "Trojan Horse Clauses" which are the keys to the whole scheme, the biggest thefts, because they take policy space and the right to regulate away! (that ends real democracy, turning politics and politicians into a sham,  into a parody of itself), effectuating a second enclosure of everything worth having. Forever.

They are literally stealing the whole planet from its people, by stealth. 

"Adverse possession"

But its so obviously illegitimate, they are hiding it because Americans just would laugh in their lying shameless faces,

And NO Virginia, that does NOT help the poor.. Helping the rich steal more does not help the poor.

They are slicker than slick.

Pray!

I will research this more as it genuinely interests me.  It seems that many know that something (well, lots of things) are very wrong, even if they can't understand it all, and have enough of this uneasy feeling that they are 'prepping' in ways I never imagined.  I know old ladies buying guns, good city folk learning to grow their own food and trying to get variances from township so they can keep chickens (and even goats LOL) in their backyards and most of them buying the "tools of their trade" or the tools of a trade they would like to take up, and learning as much about it as they can.  In the end, we will be OK.  Just look back to 1776.  It will be more difficult this time, as the cancer is much harder to recognize and more deeply embedded, but all of this nonsense - Being in bed with communists and socialists at an economic level, appeasing fascists in the name of anti-fascism, appeasing globalists and "specialists" of all flavors with "common sense" laws which make no sense and serve only to line the pockets of some snake - I think it will be a catalyzing event that will bring the good people in the USA (and other in their countries too!) closer together, and will cause the cancerous ones to consume each other as they fight for the last word, dollar, and scrap of food.

People shouldn't forget.  "Don't tread on me".  The republic came together, won, and will win again.  This cancerous pseudo-democracy will fall sooner or later and things will be set right again. 
OR communist china will nuke the whole world when they go for a steal during the chaos, then realize that they can't win against us and are too arrogant to accept a loss  :-DD

pinkman,

Don't drink the hate flavored KoolAid.

The TiSA links I posted earlier are good.

I won't - I strive to continuously keep a good low-pass filter on my trigger input and try to keep my output ripple well in check.  I hope I didn't sound hateful by using the term 'cancerous' but it seemed appropriate.  I truly believe that the 'cancer' will destroy itself in the end.  I'll just be in my barn with my chickens, eating goat cheese with my neighbor while we tinker on some XT machine while it all happens   :-+

I really like chickens by the way.  They are way cooler than many people give them credit for.  Pretty sure I can teach one to solder.

Depends on were you work and who you work for. I know a couple of companies were a engineer employed by the company for some 20 odd years will be paid £45k or higher and yet a new engineer with experience will only get paid £28k due to the way the employers manipulates the contracts. Unfortunately not everybody finds it easy to up sticks and live in the Cambridge fens or the south east of England to find a better job and therefore have to make do with what they can find locally.
That's the fundamental problem. At present there are only a few places in the world where you should be working if making good money is something that matters to you. In that regard the US still comes out on top. They pay for qualifications (regardless of the arguments against) so there are clear pay differentials up the ladder. By the time you make Senior Principal Engineer or Technical Fellow (both Sr Manager/Director level posts) in one of the larger US electronics companies you will be pulling US$150-200K. On that you will have an effective tax rate of no more than about 25% (my accountant has had it as low as 19%). So you ask yourself - if you are making US$120K as a Senior Engineer how do you value money? At that you can buy an apartment clean and done in 3 years. I have spent 12 years in the US and have probably made more than an entire 30 year career in Australia or the UK - but you are away from home and family. It seems the only thing you can bank on is you can't have it all.

Hey, don't you guys forget there are things you cannot buy!
While you might have a nice pay as EE in Europe if you're into beaches, heat and sunshine, you'll be willing to pay more for rent and overall living to be in Australia for example.
Same if you're into cutting edge technology and a place where most of stuff happens: USA's Valley.
So salaries & tax only provide some overview :)

Cheers!
