81. You see the problem you've got already?
The small businesses are not the problem. If they close, they lose customers, not only for that day, but for every day when the person they pissed off remembers it.

We don't need to shut down the entire banking system, we just need consumers and small business people to quit the "too big to fail" banks. We don't make things better by painting everybody with the same broad brush.

The average American is fat, lazy and happy, and only too willing to go to Wally World for a bunch of cheap Chinese-made crap. The challenge is to get them to see why they should support the mom and pop stores, and if those small businesses are not better than the big box stores, then there's no reason to do so.
