anti-trust

Men trusted us, they served us, they built our houses, fought our battles and they received our respect embodied in patriarchal structures in return.
But now they have nothing. What is more they have found out that if they do give us what power they had, we deprive them of their children, we take their resources and we give them nothing, nothing in return.
This time round we can’t expect them to do our bidding, as they did for so long. If we want to win back their trust and if we want them to co-operate with us, and I do, we will have to concede some of our independence and be prepared to place some dependence on them.

 As Jay Yarow notes at the link above, “This would create the biggest pay-TV business by a mile. There’s not exactly a ton of competition in the world of cable, but this would effectively make it nonexistent.”  Comcast and Time Warner are the two largest ISP’s in the United States.   This would be like Coca-Cola and Pepsi merging into one super beverage company.  As a friend of mine said earlier, “if this deal actually goes through, anti-trust legislation is effectively dead letter.”

The one thing people should recognize is how fundamentally unfair it is to look at a team in the NCAA Tournament, where the coach is making $5 million, the school is generating hundreds of millions.

Sponsors are cashing in, administrators are cashing in and the only group that is not receiving any benefit are these athletes – most of whom will not graduate and most of whom will never be a professional athlete. This is their one opportunity to be recognized and compensated.

anonymous asked:

Have you guys considered changing your url or attitude towards social justice? I agree with most of what's on here, but the connotation of "ughsocialjustice" doesn't seem to fit what you guys are really about. Also, a brief reminder that extreme anti-sjws are just as bad as extreme sjws and it seems unfair to make a blog dedicated to just one side.

The blog was made back in the day when “ugh” urls were popular for blogs that pointed out the icky parts in certain tumblr communities. Like the “ughsupernaturalfandom” blog would point out gross people in that community. It never meant we were against social justice.

Actually, all of the mods are pro social justice, we’re just against the toxic kind. 

And trust us, we know that antis are just as bad as sjws. Antis are still a part of the social justice community. Some of the mods (one of us? I’m not sure) doesn’t even call themselves an anti. Some of the mods tend to focus more on sjws (sjws aren’t the people who are pro social justice….they’re the ones that get extremely hateful if you disagree with their opinion) and some of us focus more on the anti side. 

We have enough followers where changing the url would be difficult. We also use our own domain. That is why we have all these answers posted in the FAQ. You should check it out.

Supreme Court Rules Customers Can Sue Electricity Companies For Price-Fixing During CA Energy Crisis

WASHINGTON (CBS/AP) — The Supreme Court says a group of energy companies can be sued under state antitrust laws for illegally manipulating natural gas prices more than a decade ago during California’s energy crisis.

The justices on Tuesday ruled 7-2 against American Electric Power Co., Duke Energy Co. and other natural gas traders arguing that federal law precludes state law claims.

Since the chances of antitrust suits under “leaders” like George W Bush and Barack Obama are so low, the tiny tranche of society with all the money can run a time-worn playbook – consolidate companies, squeeze vendors, push manufacturing overseas, lower wages, wash, rinse, repeat, discard.

The federal antitrust case Apple’s fighting isn’t looking any more favorable for the hardware giant since we last reported on it. Former iTunes engineer Rod Schultz testified on Friday that he’d worked on a project to block “100 percent of non-iTunes clients” in addition to keeping any third-party software from interfering with iTunes, according to The Wall Street Journal. This, the plaintiffs claim, was part of an anti-competitive way to boost the prices of iPods from 2006 to 2009. Despite the plaintiff’s best efforts, however, they weren’t able to submit a 2012 academic paper (PDF) Schultz had written detailing Apple’s blocking operating systems that didn’t support iTunes (namely Linux) as evidence.

THE INCREDIBLE BREAD MACHINE

This short story depicts the arbitrary nature of anti-trust laws. You get attacked for selling high, you get attacked for selling too low and you get attacked for selling at the prevailing rate.

‘Now, let me state the present rules’, the lawyer then went on

“These very simple guidlines you can rely upon

You’re gouging on your prices if you charge more than the rest,

but it’s 'unfair competition’ if you think you can charge less.

A second point that we would make to help avoid confusion,

don’t try to charge the same amount that would be collusion.”
