However, just because someone (some company...) "deserves a return"
does NOT mean, under the free enterprise system, that they are
_guaranteed_ a return.

There are way, way, too many groups, that have managed to get either
perpetual gov't (taxpayer...) handouts or, the next best thing (and
sometimes better) a gov't enforced monopoly or... a gov't mandated
price set. We don't need more.
