I went to a movie theater the other day in Woburn, MA. I saw a banana for sale. I asked about the price they said it was $4.75 for one banana.

My question is, What about the Sherman Anti-Trust Laws?

What about commerce clause?

What about encouraging people to eat healthy?

What about the wasteful food of the entire bananas that could have been consumed a reasonable price?

What about the sign that bans outside food from being brought in and consumed?

The key principles of Sherman Anti-Trust is: (Market allocation, price fixing or gouging)

Commerce Clause: (excluding other markets from competition).

Pick it up next time and make obsense gestures with it.... on your way out after the movie, of course.

Do what a lot of people do, sneak food and bottles of drink into the theater. I paid $4.50 for a Starbucks Grande coffee in a theater just today. In normal Starbucks, who I think overcharges as it is, only charges about $2 for a Grande. The theaters have to make their money somehow, I guess, I hardly ever see very large audiences anymore. Probably due to large screen HDTV and DVDs or Blueray or on-line movies. I saw a 78" Curved Ultra HDTV 4k the other day for about $8,000. Zowie! Beautiful crisp and clear and it is hard to tell if you are watching a real scene or something on TV. But, like the original HDTVs, the price is pretty high right now.

I would have bought the banna and asked for a refund of the movie admission price.

What Do Democrats Really Want?

Thom plus logo Thomas Friedman, the confused billionaire, told us decades ago that "free trade" is what made the Lexus a successful product when, in fact, it was decades of Japanese government subsidies and explicit tariffs that did so.
