Hey, we're businessmen.

We deal with reality.   If you dont refer to Congress as "digging into your
pocket" normally, maybe you need to re-think whatever language you obscure
the concept with...   When the telco targets one of your markets...  You
have the bullseye on your back...

With a political shift in DC, you, again, have become the target.  The
article I posted is a column written by small business advocates in
Washington DC.   Read it.  They're not using a lot of rosy phraseology to
describe what could happen.

So how do you "duck for cover"?
