    In the United States, antitrust law is a collection of federal and state government laws that regulate the conduct and organization of business corporations and are generally intended to promote competition for the benefit of consumers. The main statutes are the Sherman Act of 1890, the Clayton Act of 1914 and the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914. These Acts serve three major functions. First, Section 1 of the Sherman Act prohibits price-fixing and the operation of cartels, and prohibits other collusive practices that unreasonably restrain trade. Second, Section 7 of the Clayton Act restricts the mergers and acquisitions of organizations that would likely substantially lessen competition. Third, Section 2 of the Sherman Act prohibits the abuse of monopoly power. Wikipedia

    I use Google because I choose to, not because I have to

    I use Google. I have always liked them but they do some buttehead maneuvers I don’t like sometimes. I have had a Windows 10 and Vista Computer. I have an IPhone – For some reason I don’t trust Androids Tried Bing . It wasn’t loathsome but I didn’t really like it .

    Normally I’m against big tech. However I don’t think they have a case here. I can literally have whatever browser I want at will. Microsoft was different because I was forced into having their browsers and software. If I’m able to choose what I want when I want I don’t feel like I’m being forced into a monopoly.

    Just in time…. Because it’s the next part of the script, to get us to think the G actually cares. It’s Foolishness to believe that, when they see us as animals, wards of the state, corporations, chattel, human subjects not a living man or women or child which gives them the ability to do whatever they want.

    Break it up. Look how great our phones: service, quality, and price became after the government broke up the phone company. Monopolies are bad for the consumer.
