17. I posted this too -- We all need to do something to pressure against this
Sitting back and allowing these mergers in the 70 80s and 90s is what brought us tom the sorry and scary state we are in.

If Obama and the Ddemocrats have ANY backbone they have to stop this.

Where's Teddy Roosevelt when we need him?...Oh yeah he was a republican. But we need a democratic TR now
