    So you believe what AT&T tells you.

    You Cons are supposedly all economic genius, so riddle me this: How does less competition = good for the economy?

    I reckon we can kiss those good-bye, now.

    So much for our pro-job president.
    Even better idea.

    Stop the merger, then discontinue global trading privileges, forcing them to bring every job back.

    Obviously, you believe everything that a lame duck president, who desperately wants to get re-elected, tells you. Along with the same DOJ that raided the Gibson guitar company, because if the wood they were using for their finger boards.

    Would that even be legal? Probably not, but who cares about the law. Right?

    The global financial structure is a result of treaties (trade agreements) made with the governments of other countries. The American people don't have to continue these, or spend money from our public treasury maintaining the worldwide military and diplomatic presence to make them work.

    Put simply, there is no constitutional right for an American business to do business anywhere other than the United States, except "possibly" what they can work out for themselves with the governments and businesses of other countries, within the limits of their rights as private citizens (they can't risk antagonizing another country against ours in anyway). Even then, Congress can close our markets to any goods or services not manufactured or provided in the United States (both formally and through outrageous fees and import taxes). Both procedures are constitutionally legitimate.

    A country's laws and protections, only apply within the territory that belongs to that country. Any economic activity we support beyond our borders is optional.

    To be honest, I don't think we should end globalization outright. I'm just making a point that American companies enjoy it as a privilege, not a right.

    I said the merger doesn't necessarily bother me, I'm just not going to knee-jerk hate on Obama because of who he is. It's logical that they's want to look at it, anybody with 2/3 of a brain should have expected that. It's not over yet. I'm sure there will probably be a backroom deal to settle this.

    Apparently not you. There are anti-trust laws, and it's perfectly Constitutional for the Federal Government to regulate interstate trade.

    Still waiting for an answer on how less competition is good for the economy. But why let laws, the Constitution and basic economic principles get in the way of a good Obama-hating?

    IOW, anyone that disagrees with Obama is a racist. Right?

    No surprise there.

    Did I say anything about his race? Nope, you were the one who brought it up. I meant because he's a Democrat.

    Still waiting to hear how less competition is a good thing in a free market economy....
