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

each redstate has their own superpower, one is the fattest, one has the most diabetes, one has the most poverty, Kansas needs its niche or they can't form like voltron.

Good news indeed!  It had been a while since I had been able to something to my "1000 Reasons To Never Move To Kansas" list.  I've been stuck at 999 for quite a while.

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.

There is a bright spot in this bill: if it passes, those farkers in Overland Park will NEVER EVER get Google Fiber.

Dragonflew: Kansas has internet??


Nope. Hopefully we get cars soon. I read in the newspaper the other day they are right nice. And my horse is getting old.

Kansas was the last state to okay the use of tax dollars to build roads. It was actually banned in the state constitution. Over time the road situation became so painfully pathetic that the anti-government people finally gave in. It'll be the same deal with internet.

rev. dave: What happened to the divine powers of the free market.  Is Kansas going into trade protectionism?
More hypocrisy from Republicans.


This IS free market at its best: The politicians (both parties) are now free to accept bribes from service providers to make broadband monopolies possible.

Part of this may be to make sure their little children's little minds don't have access to evil information, but I think it's more about taking money out of the hands of the job-creators™. Because hey, if AT&T doesn't get the contract and cities do it themselves, then all the jobs they would have created won't be created because cities will magically just make fiber appear without creating any jobs. Because only job-creators™ can create jobs.
