EvilEgg: I support this and all far left guys, if only to show Americans what a real far left position is, so we can move the conversation back towards the middle.
Chris Ween: If anything will turn Zuckerberg into a conservative it would be this unlikely scenario.
themindiswatching: subby once again confuses some random crackpot on Salon with the liberals that don't live in his head.
Thats_right_ALL_the_tea: Sometimes I want to shake people and yell, "WHY ARE YOU BEING THE STRAW MAN PEOPLE ARGUE AGAINST?"
damageddude: It wasn't that long ago where Microsoft was the monopoly
DubyaHater: It's part of King Obama's plan. He's already nationalized healthcare, sissified the military, and taxed us beyond our means. Why not start nationalizing private enterprise? It's the next logical step.
I_Am_Weasel: This is the first I've heard of this and I've been at the meetings.
enry: EvilEgg: I support this and all far left guys, if only to show Americans what a real far left position is, so we can move the conversation back towards the middle.Bernie Sanders for president: you wanna see what an actual Socialist would do?
meat0918: Is this "Liberal Logic" something Republicans do to help them sleep at night get it up?
Skarekrough: I_Am_Weasel: This is the first I've heard of this and I've been at the meetings.The thing is that at the meetings only stuff on the docket gets discussed.You need to go to the meeting at Applebee's AFTER the meetings where they discuss what's going to be on the docket for next week. That's when they put together the list and decide how it's going to play out.They've got a deal where they'll honor the $.50 wings and $1 drafts deal they do on Tuesday night.
slayer199: Salon is channeling Karl Marx more than usual.
damageddude: Knowing that this article is troll bait, I'll still bite:It wasn't that long ago where Microsoft was the monopoly that was going to take over the world, and people were worried about Borders and Barnes and Noble killing all the little bookstores while Blockbuster was eliminating the mom and pop video stores. Now, two of those companies are gone and Microsoft isn't the dominate player it was. Today it's a Google/Amazon world. Tomorrow it will be somebody else.However, broadband should be regulated like other public utilities. They are all the keys to our economy.
dookdookdook: The NSA knows it can't compete with them on the surveillance front, so it's just going to buy them out instead.
mistrmind: B-b-buh-but it's all BUSH's FAULT!!!!
PC LOAD LETTER: Oh, if any crackpot can speak for all, then hell, Conservatives think the White Race is superior and that blacks should be put back into slavery.
Wendy's Chili: Chris Ween: If anything will turn Zuckerberg into a conservative it would be this unlikely scenario.You think the guy who wants to abolish public schools and replace them with facebook is a liberal?
MFK: Barnes & Noble and Borders actually DID kill off little bookstores
Ambivalence: I think the internet should, itself, be classified as a public utility. But that doesn't mean it should be nationalized since, as we all know, private companies can own public utilities (electric companies, water utilities, trash disposal, they are often owned by private companies). There are just more rules involved to defend the "public" from private abuse.This would be especially useful in the case of telcom companies as a way to strengthen net neutrality rules.But that's just me. I do not speak for anyone but myself.
