Microsoft's Plan for World Domination

Okay, we admit that the headline above may be a tad over the top.

But the news today that Microsoft wants to buy Yahoo for more than $44 billion strikes us as bad for consumers. Microsoft, after all, is not known for its friendly attitude toward its rivals.

In fact, the opposite is true: Microsoft is known for crushing its competition whenever it can and by whatever means, even when it might not be quite legal.

So we think the anti-trust folks over the the Department of Justice might want to take a long, hard look at this buyout before they let Microsoft proceed with this deal.

Oh, well, as long as our leaders affirm their commitment to family values, we don't mind the big business guys having their way with us. It's the American Way.
