Too Much Power?

This is Leslie Harris, and I read an article recently that said that Amazon has given the Federal Trade Commission a deadline regarding Amazon’s bid to buy the MGM movie and television studio, for 6.5 billion dollars. The deadline is the middle of this month, and it has to do with an antitrust investigation.

First of all, I just think Amazon has gotten too big and too out of control, but also, I don’t understand why Amazon gets to call the shots here. Can you imagine you or I telling a governmental agency that they have a deadline? Can someone please explain this to me?

Let’s all try a bit harder to buy local, whenever possible, not just to keep Amazon from growing any bigger, but more importantly, to keep our local businesses thriving.
