Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo : April 2008

Is this Deja Vous all over again...........

Or has it ever changed?  The more things change the more they stay the same.  Times have changed since Abraham Lincoln made this statement however it seems like we haven't learned anything from history.  Yes I believe in the free enterprise system and I believe that business should be able to make a profit.  That is why I am in business and I am sure that is the reason that you are in business too.  When I saw this quote I immediately started thinking about the issue with gas prices and how it is the same no matter which company  you choose to use.  Are the gas companies working in concert?


"These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert, to fleece the people."

Abraham Lincoln


What a quote from a past US President on things that were going on in his day.


What do you think?
