We really need some CEOs to be taken down by snipers. America can't endure this sh*t for much longer.

Not snipers, but the guillotine needs to make a comeback.

IrishBlunder: Anyone can, in fact, legally and shamelessly bribe an elected representative under the thinly-veiled notions of "lobbying" and "campaign contribution".


By "anyone" you mean people with tens of thousands of dollars they won't miss.

IrishBlunder: The fact that "We The People" allow this is the problem.


As if we had any say in the matter.

Well, fortunately for Comcast they've just managed to (ab)use their already dominant market position to extract some extra cash from Netflix, which they can now use to bribe lobby Congrescritters to let them dramatically increase their market dominance on the promise they won't abuse it, at least for a few years.

MugzyBrown: Predictably it's the CEOs who get the blame, when it's the regulators setting the rules for the game.

Do you think Comcast  wants to have to bribe regulators to conduct their business?


This is insightful. Legislators (politicians) control regulators. Politicians have written the laws such that political contributions are both legal and necessary if you don't want to be shaken down. Businesses have found politicians will both do their bidding and leave them alone if they give them money.

"Government of the highest bidder, by the highest bidder, for the highest bidder."

jaybeezey: i'm not worried. I've been informed by the fark brigades that the gov't will protect me from these shennanigans since they only have my interests at heart and are working tirelessly to make tomorrow a brighter place where we all get our fair share.


Good point. We should just let the corporations do whatever they want. After all, they only have our interests at heart and are working tirelessly to make tomorrow a brighter place where we all get our fair share, right?

Dragging down our future for a buck, that should resonate in DC.
