Scared of cheap Venusian imports?; The WTO has your back.

If it don’t say; Made in the USA the World; It aint worth shit.
– New World Trade Organisation slogan.

Last year a couple of NASA associate scientists gave warning of the dangers posed by extra terrestrial disapproval of our use of fossil fuels, which might lead to them deciding to wipe us out in order to save the universe from runaway global warming. This way 'Alienity' would be safe from our ‘depredations’ forever.

NASA, of course has its roots in the military and for that reason tends to concentrate on the strategic angle and have been blindsided to the possibility of other ways that Aliens could pose a threat to us.

The WTO on the other hand, apparently understands the much more serious danger posed by interplanetary, and intergalactic trade. Imagine if you will, the massive economic damage that could occur during the annual US ‘Recovery Summer’, if Earthian (Bob Brown’s term) markets were suddenly flooded by cheap sweatshop produced Martian, or Venusian goods. As result it has proposed the use of “Made in the World” labels.

Were the real intent of this action to become apparent, there could be serious legal challenges from the Interplanetary Trade Federation (ITF), so the spin is been couched in such terms as, the need to remove national labeling to “reduce public opposition to free trade:”
The World Trade Organization is moving closer to eliminating country-of-origin labels and replacing them with “Made in the World” initiative labels because they say we need to “reduce public opposition to free trade” and “re-engineer global governance.”

An America that prides itself on independence and celebrates that independence every year on July 4 should want absolutely no part in allowing the advancement of global governance that aims to eliminate the one thing that allows American consumers to know from where the products they buy originate: The “Made in USA” label.

…The WTO wants to replace country-of-origin labels with a World Input-Output Database – an initiative that is being funded by the European Union’s “Seventh Framework” program. Americans should be concerned and seriously question the involvement of the European Union in watering down or wiping out the “Made in USA” label.
It is understood that moderate Republican Senators, John McCain and Lindsey Graham have warned Presidential Nominee, Mitt Romney that if he were to oppose this move, he could be accused of xenophobia.

Romney is rumored to have told them, “That’s just silly, it is a well known fact that I have no prejudice against any branch of Buddhism, least of all Zen.”

The last word comes from the ghost of Frederic Bastiat; “If goods don’t cross borders the intergalactic space time continuum, armies will.”
