Re: The Toilet Refuses to Flush

But but they're private and they do everything better. On a side note, anyone ever wondered why AT&T has never tried to compete internationally? Because they would be slaughtered abroad.

Over here, they can sit back and exploit their monopoly in wired and the oligopoly in wireless to shore up their profits. Overseas, the governments Repub loathe would have smacked them into place quick-smart; hence their loathing of Government and competition.

Yes the usual suspect harp on how private business does everything better.

Only problem is, we don't have any large businesses that are "private" in the capitalist sense.

It a corporatist version of private, which allows these inefficient organizations to exist, without the benefit of any useful regulation.

Literally the worst of both worlds.

Not to mention, this notion that private does EVERYTHING better is a farce.

For example, the airlines ranked the highest and are globally renowned, ironically are the most profitable, and have the newest cutting-edge fleet are Government owned. Whereas, our private airlines are bankrupt, ranked last for service, and have the oldest fleet.

There are lots of examples like these. In addition, look at all of the Chinese corporations that now make up the top 200 organizations globally - all gov owned. Strict adherence to ideology and a specific dogma, while ignoring data and reality is the death of any nation.

Could you be specific about these govt. airlines?

I think JetBlue is great.

Emirates, Qatar, Singapore etc.

Jet blue is a value carrier and doesn't even come close to these guys.
