    This sort of price control is more common than you think. And I for one am grateful for it. It prevents the big box stores from driving the little local village guy out of business. The Weber grill company use this business model and it levels the playing field for your local small hardware store. It is NOT price fixing. It would be if several competing manufacturers get together in a dark room and agree to raise the price of their products instead of competing.

    If a company as big as Weber can do it (for many years now) it must be legal.

    I can't believe it but I agree with you, have a nice day!!

    And there won't be a war . we would have a hard time winning.  

     

    While China was building up their military and economics  , look at we were busy doing the last 15 years . 

    Never said we would start or win a war, only stated that if China is cut off from vital resources who knows what they may do.

    If there is anything at all ,that I believe in . It is the creativeness of bureaucracy to invent new taxes to hit Jo Shmo just so it hurts a little but without killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.

    On the other hand, think about all the gasoline tax that you will not have to pay anymore.

    Over the road taxes will never go away, they will just come up with another name for it.

    I do not doubt that statement, this is a capitalist country after all. Although I do believe believe that green energy is being developed by investment capital with the intent to make a profit and do good at the same time. But I do compare it to the annual 20 billion US dollars that goes to the mostly highly profitable fossil fuel industry. This is not counting the corn/gas/alcohol farm subsidies.

    How much corn alcohol do you think will be produced without subsidies? And how much cheaper do you think that food will be if all that corn currently being turned into gasohol will be used to feed live stock and people?
