TPD vote in European Parliament 26 Feb 2014: Europe has fallen - Big Money has triumphed Several MEPs spoke up before the voting and were summarily silenced. Europe has fallen. Europe has given in to the greed of corrupt politicians, Big Tobacco and Big Pharma. Pharma MacAvan was seen grinning. Citizens are not important. Neither is the health of human beings. There is no "democracy". Talks of "democracy" are all a big lie, told to children, to keep them quiet. To those in the United States: Be afraid. Be very afraid. Your FDA is watching. And Europe has fallen.
