The Freedom to Tune Out

Tell the boys at Carlyle, I'm checking out for awhile. Above is my report to their affiliate Nielsen Media. Also, I won't be needing any internet ads or tubes for file sharing. Let's just hope I don't need health insurance, long term acute care hospital services or nursing home care anytime soon. It's bad enough renting Hertz cars, nibbling on Dunkin' Donuts, or licking a Baskin-Robbins Pralines n' Cream ice cream cone. Will we still have the freedom to buy from non-Carlyle companies in a few years? One could ask Dr. Pepper, but time will tell. Those interested in learning more about The Carlyle Group are free to go to The PEU Report. But be prepared to hold your nose!
