    They would be right here. The tech sector has hit a major home run with all these smart phones and other devices.

    Upps--I forgot--the tech sector is one of those EVIL corporations--- that really aren't PEOPLE.--:lol:

    What? You mean people dont like the Government...Groundbreaking reporting there.

    BTW, what is the difference between a hippie talking about "the man" and a tea partier talking about "big government" besides the long hair. Sounds like the same theme

    So Big Oil is in a statistical tie with Big Government?

    lol, maybe Joe Barton can convince the American people to apologize for that sentiment.

    Anyone have a guess as to how much companies like Microsoft sell to the government at every level?

    According to that chart,

    government was increasingly out of favor throughout the Bush administration, managed to make a slight recovery after Obama was elected,

    and then headed back towards the toilet when the GOP won back the House in 2010.
