How dare you have a say in who has a say in your business!

This happens regularly.  Political partisans in a state whine about contributions coming in from out-of-state…for Congressional races!

And they’re not kidding.  I’ve yet to hear them promise that their nominee won’t be voting on things that affect every state.  I.E., federal legislation.

Boston Globe, you’re…you’re…you’re whatever is is that’s pitied by the pathetic.  Barney Frank probably bears more responsibility for the economic meltdown than any other individual.  You don’t want out-of-state influence in your federal races?  Really?

Then both parties must nominate Americans who can mind their own damn business.  You Bostonians are legendary for meddling in other people’s business while whining if they resist.  This, from the descendents of the original Tea Party.

How the mighty have fallen.

    Two cases in point: neither Microsoft nor Wal-Mart had much of (if any) lobbying presence until government tried to severely hamper or destroy the companies (anti-trust lawsuits against Microsoft, and anti-Box-Store legislation aimed at Wal-Mart).

    They adopted lobbying out of self-defense.

      Well, I have a lot more sympathy for Wal-Mart than Microsoft. I felt that some of the anti-trust suits were legitimate. MS used its virtual monoply on operating systems to push programs that were often worse than non-MS programs. And there were credible reports that system “upgrades” were designed to make non-MS programs buggier.

      It’s like the water company also being in the plumbing business. You can’t count on monoplies doing the right thing.
