    Great

    So what you're saying is, you're in support of more government money going towards the underperforming whites of Kentucky, than the blacks of New York, Baltimore and Shitcago.

    Who would have thought a BLM supporter like you would be in favor of such a thing??.

    Trump supporting white families who live in subsidized housing are hard-workin' 'Muricans. It's the black democrat families in subsidized housing who are the good-for-nothin' leeches. Get it straight!! :mad:

    I thought it was common knowledge that Queen B is a troll whose entire shtick is trying to make progressives look like poorly informed wack jobs.

    Rofl.

    It's not "free" - it's included as part of your rent, OR the landlord makes you put the utilities in your name and you pay those bills yourself.

    I believe we do enough for low income families in this country, especially when compared to what the working middle class sees for its tax dollars. Its not fair for people to work all their lives and have nothing better than those who coast.

    "Free"


    This is the problem with liberals right here. There's no such thing as free.

    The pride of knowing you never got a gubmint handout and worked hard for every penny you have should be its own reward.

    There is zero connection between what I stated and any currently in-use definition of "white privilege".

    Sure. The phones lines are all in place, no reason they cant have government run dial up. Anything more than that? Hell no.

    I work in telecom for 10+ years. Google was trying to disrupt the system but their college interns that developed their business model were ignorant of all he variables. Most importantly they either forgot unions existed, or they hoped they could bend local government to their will. A lot of the slowdown for Google's rollout is they want to move other utilities' stuff. For example: they wanted to be able to drive up to a telephone pole and move AT&T/Verizon/etc.'s cable up or down the pole as needed, or to make room for their pole-mounted devices. This was obviously not cool with the major telecoms, as the last thing you want is people touching your stuff and causing outages. Second, the unions were furious because they have a contract with AT&T/Verizon/etc that says they are the exclusive work force to touch those cables on poles. Not to mention google was only building out "last-mile" services and still used AT&T/Verizon/etc.'s infrastructure to provide edge and backbone service.

    IMO, people need to work with their municipalities and build out local municipal networks. AT&T/Verizon/etc. do very little of the actual construction these days, it's all contracted out to MASTEC or whoever is in your location, the ISPs simply design the project. Municipalities could do it this way as well and at least provide service to the higher density areas relatively cheaply. Iirc, Chattanooga TN has a municipal network for downtown and some of the suburbs. Municipal networks won't work in the sticks though. If you live out in the country cell service (or reusing the spectrum) is the only economical way to get service to cleetus living in his tar paper shack.

    I just went to Eastern kentucky last week to pick up a new English Setter puppy, they're not getting internet anytime soon. Fuckers don't even have cell service in the "hollers". I truly felt like I was in a different country lol.
