I can't believe that would apply, since that would effectively abolish
the postal service (competes with FedEx, UPS, AirEx...), FEMA
(competes with pretty much any homeowners/renters insurance company)

the east coast...they built Acela on the Northeast Corridor to gain a
competative edge even) right out.
