@Dumme, I agree with so much of the anti big business stuff. I do my very best with the budget I have to support local/small businesses, but it’s to the point where small businesses have to be damn smart to survive the market, it’s impossible to complete. Amazon, or the general online industry that is blooming, is soon to topple even Walmart. If you have a small business, that can reach a point of a huge corporate buyout, you have three choices. 1) Sell to them. Cash out, and at retire on the American Dream. 2) Hold firm, and hope you can survive big business destroying you after turning down their offer. 3) If you survive the assault that will come when you turn down and aggressive buyout, and keep your company afloat, let your children sell of, or sink your life’s work when your done.
