    Professions. Advertising would still be media buying, radio, billboards and fax machines without Google. And Google Ads, Google Biz, Google's office tools, Google's conferencing tools, Google LSA, etc... give other businesses an avenue to grow their businesses.

    Are they going to break up McDonald’s into the burger company and the egg McMuffin company ?

    politicians can’t even code or build a gaming pc

    democrats and republicans are people who failed math and science

    This is because art history dropouts are dumb and don’t understand business and science.

    are they going to break Sony up too into PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4?

    The two party system has made Americans think in only two ways
    While 99ers have infinite thought patterns

    When the superior life from the other worlds come they would welcome only us

    Watch Continuum if you want to see what corporate overlords ruling the world would look like.

    Breaking up Google would be stupid. That is all.

    I think I need an indepth reason as to why they are a monopoly?
    Search Engine? No
    Youtube? No
    They have a bunch of companies that compete with other companies.

    Chinese companies like BABA and PDD won't have to deal with this giving them more of an edge
    Id rather focus on. a global effort to disrupt the tax offshore havens instead of breaking up everything that works
    Make GOOGL pay their fair share, AAPL etc, then use it as money to help small innovative businesses when they go through tough times like COVID.

    Agreed on both this and how it could make them less competitive globally. I was against the democrats making financial institutions the scapegoat and target of unnecessary regulations (note not against the reserve requirements and the changes, but additional stuff that came with cfpb only forced companies to make bad decisions imo). Hence did not vote again in the following two elections.

    Now, I'm seeing it play out on tech.

    Democrats could be against monopolies too. It's not a red or blue thing.
