    In a truely free market, there wouldn't be anything wrong with making record profits.

    We wouldn't even be bitching about this if we were still paying under a buck a gallon.

    In that vein.....................how can there be any type of truly free market system..................when such total manipulation can and does exist..........it makes the free market system an illusion............which actually stifles competition and competitiveness which is what makes those one sided profits to be allowable,unconscionable because it also stifles consumption from all markets except theirs which is illegal I believe.............:eusa_whistle:

    No, that's wrong. A Free market is one free of outside intervention and manipulation from a powerful governing body, which could potentially, and DOES, pave the way for CERTAIN companies to gain unfair advantage.

    In a true free market, it would merely be survival of the fittest. Either your business prospers, or it fails.

    I'm sorry, I read your post wrong, you were right. You basically said what I just said, in a different way.

    That's exactly why I call it an illusion, because of the outside manipulation.............because all factors figured in, it creates downturn to all and the struggling companies................no matter how qualified............are artificially degraded and not because their product lacks quality, which should be the actual determining factor!:rolleyes: :eusa_whistle:
