Summary: the government has been systemically favoring big business over small business.

Skimmed over the snip and the article. Sounds like what I have been saying, and outlined in "Rant #37" some 15 years ago. The implications of what I heard Jack Kemp say all those years ago? If you accept his argument that the rich are entitled to all the money, it follows that, once the mob has been robbed blind, you rob the bottom rung of the "JCs" the owners of independent diners and heating and cooling companies, that work like a dog 80hrs/wk with maybe 3 staff. Also implicit that when bribery of elected officials is officially legal, the parties that can afford to pay the largest bribes are the ones who get what they want.

....or maybe I wrote that article under an assumed name...my family has a record of doing things under assumed names.
