Please don't take this the wrong way nor does it give me any pleasure to say this , but I doubt this is being done for our benefit or because the
little guy is winning.
There is financial reasons behind everything the gov't and corporations does, Especially within the last decades.
The consumer has very little to do with the process nor does their best interest is considered when it comes to the process.
1. The Federal Government is lowering the recommended amount of fluoride in our drinking water
I wonder if there are two opposing Oligopolies with conflicting business models such as healthcare insurance vs the fluoride industry?
2. McDonald's are closing everywhere..
True, this is business news, but it is much deeper than that. More and more people are forgoing fast food restaurants and junk food in favor of
making their own meals with organic, local food or visiting places like Panera or Chipotle.
More of a business news as you state but keep an eye out for further restrictions in the future in growing your own food source.
3. Chipotle to use only non-GMOs in their restaurants. I
Two different industries with different business model. One is trying to capitalize on the non GMO band wagon and the other has had great success in
passing laws to prevent states from labelling GMO food items.
4. Europeans are protesting the Federal Reserve and the protests are growing
We have always been given the freedom to protest and even riot. However, from what I have seen , the protest leads to misdirection not action within
recent times. Will see what happens.
5. Comcast and Time Warner will not merge.
This really didn't have nothing todo with the people. This was the result of LUCK that two opposing industries have conflicting business models.
The online TECH industry [google,netflix,amazon] has a business model that is favourable to the consumer.
The more people that are online with fast,reliable and cheap internet the more money THEY make. They would even like for you to get internet for free
and they absorb the cost to get you to there stores.
The Telecom Oligopoly [ComCr@p,AT&Turd, and Norizon ] has the exact opposite business model where they only make money from you by nickeling and
dimeing you to death.
So what happened was , that you had the Online Tech company get the Cr@p scared out of them when they almost gave the internet control to the the ISP
[ComCr@p,AT&Turd, and Norizon] . That would have killed their business and put them at the mercy of the ISP. So they spent some serious money to undo
all the lobbying that the TELECOM did to try to kill net neutrality. They also spent a bunch of money to ensure that Comcast doesn't become a bigger
threat to them.
So it boils down to finance gains for the big Crops and the consumer is just there for the ride.
Don't mean to show you the half empty glass , but sometimes we need to see the harsh reality to change it.
