    Amazon Growth

    Rumors are starting to circulate - a couple of Democrats in Congress are starting to look into Amazon with regards to Anti-Trust Laws


    1st off - how can a company as diversified as Amazon be accused of being a Monopoly
    2ndly with the accusation of Whole Foods will Amazon finally take Wal-Marts Lunch Money and kick them to the curb


    after all Wal-Mart has had to start offering some sort of free shipping to compete with Amazon
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    And if a statue can oppress you, then I submit that you have greater issues. - A West.

    Ahh..that explains the box that came in yesterday from Walmart. The missus must have discovered their on-line option.

    It does seem strange that they'd go after Amazon while deregulating the major ISP's defacto monopoly.

    Per opensecrets.org Comcast donated $12.6M, Amazon $0.657M.

    Money talks?
