And they do. Rightfully so, I suppose.
I think the issue that was being discussed -- which I shouldn't
probably compel -- is the fact that questionable decisions have
been in the U.S. regulatory process which favor monopoly interests.
Free markets have a tendency to become "un-free" when monopolistic
positioning becomes entrenched -- and even preferred by government
But allow to me apologize now for my non-technical response,
although I feel compelled myself to point out the obvious. We just
don't have the competitive choices we should, as consumers.
What is old, seems to be new again, unfortunately.
