The elephant in the room

There's an elephant in the room. Everyone can see it and hear it and smell it, but nobody wants to acknowledge that it's there. And, nobody wants to deal with it, even though it's eating everyone's peanuts and crapping on everybody. Everyone is afraid to try and do something because they might get STOMPED by the big bad elephant.

Why monopolies are bad ... A really well thought out post about monopolies and the monster that is Amazon (and by comparison Walmart and Google):


  1. American companies, such as Boeing, Ford, Nike, Microsoft, Intel, Walmart, Amazon, General Electric, Archer Daniels Midland, Disney, and others created and innovated to lead world markets. We do business better.

    Be proud, not jealous of what American companies accomlished. Class envy politics, complaining about evil corporations, are designed to fool and pander to the naive.

  2. Walt, thank you for expressing your opinion. It is always good to look at all sides of a story. However, questioning the motivation of a corporate giant or oversized government - especially in a capitalist environment - is not a display of jealousy, it is simply skepticism. Anyone who blindly believes what he's told and regurtitates that empty rhetoric ends up looking like a naive fool.
