That's because many companies in the US exist as paper instruments to enforce government-granted monopoly


And you managed to toss the Import Export bank in there too, without understanding what it is. (hint: it not only does NOT stifle competition, but strengthens the country's exports and ability to export, and turns a profit for the government (which reduces the deficit))

i think my samsung go phone i bought at Target (SGH-487 something something) has surpassed my old nokia for survability at this point. but even if it breaks tomorow, so what? who needs to upgrade for a "free" phone and 2 year contract, when 10$ for a prepaid phone with a removable sim card is all it takes to replace a phone?
