John Oliver ... just pretend you dropped the soap

I realize John Oliver is not up everyone's alley but ... well, I like him and I liked this one on how lovingly we are all getting screwed by mergers.


  1. I think John Oliver is doing excellent stories right now. I was very glad to see that he won an Emmy!

  2. Nearly every day in the news there will be an announcement that some company I've never heard of is buying out some other company I've never heard of for roughly an average of 14billion u.s.d. I shrug my shoulders knowing that I know nothing about what's going on. But I do remember some Ancient Greek philosopher saying that all forms of government are still essentially oligarchies. And even though the largest players are now corporations, providing corporations with the rights of citizenship allows the oligarchy label to remain appropriate.
