In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
There used to be a good department store chain aiming for mid-scale buyers based near me, Mervyn's. Vulture capitalists moved in and sucked the life out of it and then threw away the carcass. They're moving in on a business I've been patronizing for years, Staples. What happened to Mervyn's is happening to Staples should be banned. The market didn't kill Mervyn's. The market isn't killing Staples. Vultures are and did. Thy're like Vikings coming ashore to loot and pillage and leave nothing behind. Except they're not coming from afar. They're our own wealthy attacking the country that spends billions to defend them and sends its children forth to die in their defense all over the world. Protect this country from its homegrown barbarians.
