    And car companies, solar companies, unions and anybody else that donates to the DNC.

    Break up anything that is “TBTF”. They broke up the old Bell System back in 1984 and it was working perfectly for everybody. The big banks are only working for the rich and are a total failure for the rest of us.

    Too big to fail has become too big to prosecute and for that reason, I find myself in rare agreement with Mr. Kent whose tone is ofttimes on the far left fringe of liberal views. However, ConGov, in his continuing efforts to aid in the divisiveness confronting our people, only sees fault in the DNC and their donors.
    The cartoon is less a jab at the airline merger, than at Congress and its willingness to not only protect banks, but to allow them to continue the very practices that took us to the brink in 2008. Not surprising since Congress itself is willing to take the USA and the rest of the world to the brink of financial collapse in order to make “the other party” look bad.
    When the divisiveness becomes extreme, we will become like Egypt with neighbor turning on neighbor.
    There is a lady on my street who, because I refused to support her candidate in 2010, still will not even say hello to me when we meet at the store or walking in the neighborhood.
    Is this how politics are supposed to create a United States of America?
    Respecfully,

    Zing! Plus, USAirways is so unbelievably crappy that they would have sunk American, too, which while it is generally as unimpressive as all US airlines, is at least reasonably efficient.
    We definitely need either to break up a few banks or at least split out certain financial businesses.
    As for @ConserveGov and @Zipi — really? That’s the best you can do?

    Obviously they didn’t make enough political contributions to earn the sympathies of regulators.

    RT, I noticed this, too, but it was earlier, about 2004. Friends and acquaintances that before had discussed political things were unwilling to do so unless they knew they were among people who thought the same.
    -
    And, the level of anger was right at the surface. The mere mention of some candidate or other would cause frowns, glares, and sometimes clenched teeth.
    -
    It’s only increased since.

    Flew American last week, service is definitely already down from past practices.


    Clark: Carter started the anti-trust suit against Ma Bell on equipment issues and Western Electric. When Reagan came in, he let Bell re-write the entire suit so they gave up 90% of what was losing them money, and increased their control over what WAS making them profits. But of course, that’s just another part of history, and “Reaganomics”, that sent so many down the tubes.

    There is a Texas company involved and Obama needs an “understanding” from them…
