So why do we not hear about how horrible it is that "big water" is making a profit on the backs of the poor? Why don't we hear that "big grocery" is price gouging? And why does the base ball team get a pass?
The problem is we pick and choose who we want to vilify, how bad is "big oil", or "big pharma" but not a peep about "big soft drinks"? Our economic system allows for supply and demand to determine price, but yet how often do we hear about how the oil companies are making too much money, and how the pharmaceutical companies are charging too much for the miracle medications that they discovered? Our country is full of whiners and ingrates who want everything for nothing.
Is there any hope of a return to sanity? I am not sure.
