Why Mega Corporations Are Bad

Mega-corporations. That's the name for a corporation that's grown so large that it eats other smaller ones. Like a virus. Kraft brands. I'd always preferred to buy them, especially after they openly supported Gay Rights, and same-sex marriage. But it's really interesting to find out what, exactly, Kraft owns.

Into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but … Continue reading A Reminder of Hate-filled History
