Is there anyone not employed by a large media conglomerate that's for this? You can call me names like "liberal" and "lefty" but is there any way to explain this whole deregulation ploy other than a move to appease business interests at the cost of multiple voices in the press?

When bears chase me, my fight or flight response activates and I crap all over myself while running from them.

I don't understand why the bear chases me when I throw my crap at it. But now, I've got me a stick! I'll show that bear a thing or two!
