show me: walkerhound: Should I protest about how much I have to pay if I can find out that's not what I'm getting?

Absolutely.

walkerhound: (KSU)

Never mind, have your mom do it for you.


I'm not a native, goofball.  My whole family is Mizzou.

Actually, I'm a displaced Coloradoan, trying to find my way back.

Datanerd: Didn't they pass this in North Carolina after one of the cities there built its own network?  And in Tennessee after Chattanooga's municipal power company built its own network?  You know, that's the whole point of having a market - people with lower costs can sell products at lower prices, and drive out the inefficient providers.  Unless the inefficient providers have political pull.  In the 1900s that would mean that Standard Oil's kerosene would have kept municipal electricity out of the market. But back then we busted up trusts and monopolies.  Now, we enshrine them in law.


This.

 I wish the feds would look into this. It's been happening (as you pointed out) in several places now.

 Of course, the feds are too busy gutting Net Neutrality...

Jeez, you left Colorado for Kansas? I feel for you man. That's trading down like breaking up with Milan Kinks in favor of Sandra Bernhard... a fat Sandra Bernhard who has palsy and sewed her vagina closed and got braces.

Every ruling class that bases its power on lies fears the open spread of information.

Agreed, one of my favorite games to play with the gf when we're out is called "spot the FUPA."

What's wrong with Kansas?

3 G's: Speaker2Animals: Well of course. The bible doesn't mention broadband, so the government should not be doing it.

Neither does the Constitution...which means the authority to regulate/deny it automatically reverts to the States, via the 10th Amendment.  Or something.

This is just one more item in the long list of things that, together, help form the answer to the question, "what the fark is wrong with Kansas?"!


Ever since the wizard returned things just haven't been the same.

Boojum2k: Broadband internet access is protected by the 1st Amendment the same way modern firearms are covered by the 2nd.

/Grabs popcorn


Must have taken you hours to think up that one.

A few seconds, really, but it took you 36 hours to come up with even that lame retort.

Better luck next time, Bucky.
