Yes - it all comes back to greed - offering a worse service & charging you more for it offering less, but charging the same or more...

I remember when a 12" pizza was a 12" pizza. Now 12" pizza means the box (barely) measures 12"

Even more surprising capitalist are endorsing it.

What is the world coming too.

China and Russia embracing capitalism.


ARRrrrrgggGGGGhhhhHHHH....
