well, specifically, when it comes to utility rates like electricity, i'd rather have it regulated. deregulation is just the perfect excuse to raise power rates. if a certain power company invested in newer technology, deregulation is just the perfect excuse to recoup their investments many times over faster. in the long run, power companies together with private power distribution companies will just realize they don't have to compete with each other, they'd just form a cartel and raise power rates all together.
in a speaking engagement a few months ago, the president of the Philippines addressed folks in the southern region of Mindanao where energy demands are not being met sufficiently, told the people literally "if you want more power, you have to pay more!" in Mindanao where various Muslim rebel groups abound, everyone was surprised he came out of there still alive and unscathed!
if the JGov wants to lower electricity rates, they should regulate prices and set it lower. period. nothing wrong with learning from developing nations where oligarchy and imperialism is at it's height right now, right?

deregulation = prices would go up
if anything, governments should have more TEETH when it comes to utility rates like electricity.
deregulation is a move backwards, just look at the Philippines, everything is deregulated, previous presidents sold government owned companies to private investors and now utility rates are higher than ever. present politicians now removed the iron hand that kept everything in check during the 80's, and now everything is run by crooks and crocodiles.

“How could you kill someone with a pen?” asked company president Toshio Yamada. “It is hard to understand.”
if a person stabs you straight through the eye into your brain with a pencil, most probably you'll die.
how can you kill someone with a necktie? most probably you know the answer to this one.
i think the point was, those items were made by "U.S. firearms and knife manufacturers, including Smith and Wesson"
in prison, pens and toothbrushes with long handles are also forbidden, because they can be shaped into something lethal. if these pens were shaped like bullets on it's non-writing side and made of a mixture of metals, most probably in the wrong hands, these can be cut, shaped and fashioned to fit bullet cases. get it?
