Because the industry had such a big hand in making the laws - they are perfectly tailored to a group that wants to control every step of the process as a "monopoly".  (Sounds like the AMA, huh??)



Which industry DOESNíT have a hand in making the laws that regulate them?

The netflix industry's hand, if present, was slapped pretty good by the FCC

Warren Clinic is now open so I suspect Costco will start soon.  That was the timeline I'd heard from day one.  The Warren Clinic is a really nice looking building.

Inside and out. Reminds me of a miniature hospital.

No doubt!!  All of them try at one level or another.  Some are just way more successful at buying Congress (Federal and States) than others....

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

The pillow industry? You never hear on the news about the "Big Pillow" lobby, but I wish we did.

I think they 'control' their areas on a scale proportional to their relative significance in the economy.  There is (was?) a pillow place in Bartlesville area that seemed to run the whole town of Ochelata for many years!  I think their 'tentacles' extended all the way to Lenapah for some time....

Well, we have been members of Costco for almost a year.  Sounds like they are getting ready to raise the price on membership.  Not sure it has been worth what it cost originally...likely won't renew.

Supposed to go up $5.

If you get the Costco credit card that pays 2% cash back and use it there spending just $500 per year there will offset that price increase.
