I normally don't upvote political memes, but this one seems to be telling the truth and doesn't really seem to be truly attacking anyone (although it does seem to be taking a few pokes at some people), so I'll upvote it and see what happens

The breakup was good. Unfortunately, AT&T never did learn the lesson. Today, they rely on Cable, Internet, and Cellular for their income, and treat them as though they were still a monopoly. My local phone company is on its fourth owner in the last 20 years, not that I've used them in the last decade or so.

Ah. It's got decent competition in my region by some wind farm. I still use it, though.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION:
THE DEMISE OF THE TELEPHONE MONOPOLY; THE BREAKUP OF THE MONOPOLIZED BELL SYSTEM WAS MANDATED ON JANUARY 8, 1982 THANKS TO PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN AND CONGRESS. THIS IS WHY WE SUDDENLY GOT CALL WAITING, CALL BACK AND THREE WAY LINE, AS WELL AS LIMITLESS INTERNATIONAL CALLS. IN PRAISING REAGAN, CONSERVATIVES NEVER SEEM TO BRING THIS ACCOMPLISHMENT UP, BECAUSE THEY FEAR PEOPLE WILL DEMAND AN END TO MOST PROTECTED MONOPOLIES! COMPETITION IS KEY TO FREEDOM AND A HEALTHY ECONOMY
