    This title is kind of dumb. Just because a lot of products are owned by a few companies doesn`t mean there is not choice. All Kraft products don`t taste the same.

    Now show which politicians are owned by them.

    On a side note, has Crabes become a Mod? He`s sure getting a lot of stuff approved lately.

    How is it an allusion of choice? Regardless of who owns what doesn`t mean jack to me selecting a detergent.

    I once was happily employed for Gillette. Once PG bought it it was all downhill from there. I make it a point not to buy PG products. Gillette quality has suffered since the buyout and the move to mexico

    greenbasterd, how can they? my dick has no writing on it :P

    also, the only "illusion of choice" here is for people ignorantly trying to not buy products by certain companies. otherwise, the products vary GREATLY. peopel who think otherwise are also ignorant... sure there are some products that are called something different but are identical, but for the most part they all taste different.
