I have removed this post in the interest of forestalling the flood of responses I have received regarding it. Most of them were positive in nature, in support of competition and a free market economy. A couple of them were against. Those commenter's misread the thrust of my argument as a personal attack. All I can say if this:
I will defend to my dying breath, the right of small business to compete with, and perhaps best their competition. And that's all I have to say.
