If this really is the “FTC’s Bureau of Competition” maybe you should go back to school and learn what COMPETITION means!_x000B_It doesn’t mean “GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY”!_x000B_If the mainstream press is having problems, it’s because it’s not delivering a product people will VOLUNTARILY pay for._x000B_When you subsidize it you take the people’s payments INVOLUNTARILY and give it to the one who can’t COMPETE._x000B_Only a moron could fail to see the distinction._x000B_When someone sticks a gun in your face in the alleyway and demands your wallet, this is INVOLUNTARY. We, in polite society, call it ROBBERY._x000B_Do I need to say this more S L O W L Y?_x000B_Please let me know where this subsidy idea is headed. I’d like to know more about the rationality of it. And I’d like to know the names of those in the FTC who are promoting it so I can campaign to have them removed from their posts._x000B_Hal Byrd_x000B_Kirkland, WA
