    Waiting for the free market purists to tell us why this is such a fantastic thing for rank and file Americans.

    They get too big, stop providing competitive prices, products services and that opens up the way for someone to create a new product or service to beat them. Few big mega companies dominate for long because they do over step the bounds and the market punishes them. Not really excited either way. ATT Uverse is a **** product, I should know I was a Tier II Tech rep for them. The problems with that service are legion.

    The real monopolies that are bad are government run monopolies.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
