    People who do not understand the principles that our Constitution was based on and try to argue things like "We are a Christian Nation"....they obviously either don't get it or refuse to accept it.

    It also would have been impossible. Also, the importance of cotton had not been foreseen.

    These aren't companies.

    Price fixing, market manipulation, unfair labor practices, lack of competition.

    I'm amazed at your clairvoyance. What should we be doing in the present time so that it won't be so bad 70 years from now? I feel like I need to pay $3.95 a minute.
