There is plenty wrong with _just_ wanting to get acquired. Many times, acquisition is predatory, in the sense that a bigger company wants your tech, but not your people. So you stand on the backs of hard working people until you get your golden parachute, and leave them with nothing but unemployment when you go.

This sucks for the people let go, but there is no reason to lose out on a golden parachute if that is what you want. If offered a ton of money, how many of those people would keep working for you - and do you have a right to expect them to stay with you for less money?

Does the idea of no God or afterlife bring you joy or any feelings (besides smugness?)

I've had both a wife and son die. It really brings me sadness and feels me with emptiness to think that there is no after.

I know my wishes do not effect or create a reality that does not exist, but I have faith that God is there and that there is more to our lives than what we have here.

Also, for the record, I have always had faith, this is not something new driven by a desperate hope to see the woman I love as well as my son again.

On the opposite, most of the regulation was repealed over last thirty years

So you are arguing against regulatory committees and rules created in the past 30 years ago and hoping we can get back to where we were during the Reagan years? I can support that.

The rest of your post is pretty much just a personal attack with no substance but at least it lengthened you post to look like you had content to provide.

That's because there were not as many regulations then as there are now. It got to the point where instead of the government and businesses working together, it was a war. Business won it and "big business" gets a stronger foothold against small business every time the liberal anti-corp "do-gooders" create new regulation.

I think it's the opposite of how you read this.

It's an Obama / democrat thing to compare everything to the cost of the Iraq war to act like whatever they are pushing is cheap in comparison - health care being one of the loudest examples. The comparison is usually as relevant as justifying buy a phone because it's cheaper than a car.
