    Re: in the end power is sociopolitical not financial: class not inco

    WEll,
    Part of this is that WE THE PEOPLE, have not had interaction with THOSE WE HIRED to represent us..
    The CORPS have covered most of it up with THEIR OWN, backup system to what THEY WANT.. They can DUMP LOADS of mail/email onto a bill, saying THEY WANT IT..
    The Old phone service was great and had LOTS of gov. protections..BUT no one understands THAT cellphones DONT have those protections.. EVEN tho it uses the Fiber Backbone, that the OLD system USES..

    And Basic Econ is easy to understand and FIX, IF THEY WOULD FIX IT.. its NOT hard. But the CORPS keep threatening the Gov...(we will move out and take jobs away, is NOT A GOOD REASON TO KEEP THEM HERE) We can fill ANY Corps position Even if the Gov. has to replace it..
    Its like Protecting banks...DONT. Let the Lower ranked banks TAKE THE POSITION..Screw the BIG guys who will have to pay out to stock holders..

    Re:

    Dont you love it..
    The best trick you can do, is send a Specific sized File back and forth with another person..

    But, Iv had to express the problems with LAG and interlinks with EACH SYSTEM, not to forget the Last mile..

    Lag can be anything from your system, your GPU, Your router, modem, the Link to the hub, the MAIN internet, The HUB in the area you want to contact, Then the Server you need to talk to.. ALL that and saying that NO POINT is being over used, to many PEOPLE on it..

    If you play games you know the problem of to many people..

    Ever goto ANY of the Speed tests, its Hilarious..
    I prefer a good Ping route, and watching all the lag.
    A few games I played, went OVER THE BORDER...and you could see the Jump point over the borders, on both sides the Ping went up from 40-50, to over 100ms..
    Keep doing Ping around the country and you will see the MAIN intersect of server locations..Where you jump from 1 service to anther, and Also the LAST MILE interconnect..

    ALL of this is part and parcel of the OLD system Merging with the NEW..The MAIN stuff out in the Fields, is Fiber(mostly).. And there are Allot of reasons to KEEP THE HARD WIRE SYSTEM..Wireless has Many problems, and restrictions, Limitations..

    All those speed tests SHOULD be a great avg. of our service in this country, but you are at the Mercy of the END POINT.. Its like having the fastest computer, and connecting to DIALUP at the end. You cant go any faster then the END POINT..and any bottle necks in the middle, DO NOT HELP..

    SLOW internet..

    There are a few NICE reasons to have it around..
    IF they would price it LOWER..
    Older persons and those that JUST WANT BASIC EMAIL and to wonder the net..
    A KIDS ACCOUNT
    Security connection. Wireless might be better, but ISNT CHEAP EITHER..
    Mobile cameras for local police. Wireless still requires power, and isnt long term.

    NOW..
    If they would QUIT locking up Tethering on our phones(no real reason, except to CHARGE YOU MORE) we could hook up Many things to the Net thru our phones.. It might even force them to get 4g, 5g, and BETTER SOONER...

    Protection

    I wonder what happened to privacy AFTER we paid for a product??
    Isnt there ANY privacy for a PAID FOR SERVICE?? Or do I have to PAY MORE..

    Sounds like a trip to canada would be interesting, they have a service to Kill all your tracking in phone.

    This sounds wrong, but,

    An artist creates and continues to the NEXT THING..

    A person in it to MAKE MONEY, Creates and earns money Over and over and even AFTER HE DIES, either the corp or Family get the money for another 2-3 generations?? OFF OF THE WORK A GRANDFATHER HAD DONE?? Even the rich cant go this far.

    And in the beginnings of the RIAA, the contracts for the recording industry WE TERRIBLE for the artists.. everything went tot he corp and almost NOTHING to the artists, and NOW every part of the music is Protected, from Music, Words, and a few other parts..AND DONT EVER TRY to play a song from a Movie, TV series..

    In all of this, you would think that the artist DURING HIS LIFE,, could save money and let his family live off what was Incurred in his LIFE TIME, and NOT after his death. But they really dont get paid allot.

    PS. the MPAA wants the SAME..

  • May 21st, 2018 @ 1:18pm

    For years

    It has been said that the Gov. is to big, and needs to be Cut back..
    They do the SAME as every corp and CUT THOSE on the bottom before anyone on the top can feel it..
    All those Consumer protection laws are being DROPPED..
    ALL those pollution laws are Disappearing..

    Love those words, FREE MARKET, FAIR TRADE..and what THEY DONT MEAN..
    Unregulated Commercialism and Corporatism and anything else a CORP controlled nation can be..

    Corps that send ideas, instruction and asks for things to be built in other nations, shipped HERE, then charges the customers 10-100 times for the products..
    They cut all regulations so they can process Food in this country with Little to NO federal protection on Quality..(look up all the Food poisoning)
    3 agencies and they can only cover 8% per year and request the Corps get independent verification..
    When they cant BUY UP another opponent/company they TRY to kill it out right. ASK MS and Apple how they have done it for years..

  • May 16th, 2018 @ 7:27pm

    WHY?

    Why did this Pass anyway..
    Think they did it for the money, then they could reverse it??
    \
    And the customers PAY EVERY CENT..

  • May 16th, 2018 @ 7:25pm

    Just

    Just a way to bypass the laws..dont need proof, YOU NEED PROOF you didnt do it..

    Re: Re: Has the Horse Already Left the Barn?

    Thad,
    Yep, knew it..
    And wondered why we are paying them Equal to 360k per year for 1/2 years work..
    Then they have taken down so many Consumer laws its getting real bad out here.. We have 3 agencies responsible for the Food in this country, from Field to Store. And they have said they cant do it, they can only get to 8% per year. And how many food poisonings around the States??

    Im waiting for the absence of pollution laws to REALLY HIT..

    And with those 500+, you would think abit of common sense would be SOMEPLACE..

    TIME

    Ummmmm!
    1998 to 2018??
    It took them 20 years to discover something we have KNOWN FOR YEARS??????
    Anyone ever TRY to goto a Kids cartoon site??
    Used to be cartoons..

    TRYING to get these people to QUIT, is as hard as Quitting smoking..
    And they will find every way/form/fashion/cheap trick and MAKE NEW ONES..
    It wont matter, what computer interface you use..
    THEY GET PAID..and who is paying them??

    Roku is getting bad. depending on channel, its as BAD as cable tv. And they REPEAT the same adverts in the SAME position, you get to watch 2-3 of the same commercial.

    It fun to have a few single player, Anywhere you can, GAMES..but they Mostly want connection to the net.

    AND the idea of playing a 2 player direct, both in same room/location and use BT??

    Smart phones COULD BE SMART..I would watch a commercial EACH time I OPENED(not phone calls) my device for use. But Every #@$@$ program HAS THEM..and many want to Start when you turn it on..

    How many times do you need to SHUT THINGS OR GET RID OF THEM, so your hours arent used up?? Iv had my phone charged and sitting near me, and Loose 50% of its power in 1-2 hours..

    About ready for a trip to Canada to see if a person up there can do the SAME for me, he does for gangs, and turn OFF EVERYTHING..Un-solder them..so no one can track me or remote turn on the GPS..

    Re: Has the Horse Already Left the Barn?

    1/2 smart..
    Lets see..
    MS had a Bot in the music program that lasted from 1998- 2005..and NO AV found it..
    NORTON, sends messages to the CORPS 2 weeks befor Consumers??
    AV companies HAVE TO KNOW/SEE/FIND a Virus before they can stop it..If no one mentions it, samples it..THEY CANT DO ANYTHING..
    (LOVE QUICK SCAN/NOT) easy trick for quick scan is to scan by DATE..and NOT the windows files..

    Easier to make Program BOT to watch you, as then if found can be re-installed..
    Once a hardware Bug is found, the person can kill the phone..
    THERE ARE 3 buttons in MANY PHONES...Off/ON/IM A POLICE AGENT...REALLY..
    Its how they can locate you in emergency by GPS on your phone, as LONG AS ITS LIVE/WORKING...Good battery..

    WHO here knows about the NO RING HARDWARE for the old phones?? You can Actually, call a number and it WONT RING, and listen to whats happening in the house..
    And if you want your name on a list...go find and buy this..

  • May 14th, 2018 @ 2:33pm

    Love the idea..

    But in practice, WHO do you protect??
    THOSE 1,000,000 Paying for your services??
    Or those 10 trying to get the info from you??

  • May 14th, 2018 @ 2:28pm

    WHO DO YOU CALL??

  • May 14th, 2018 @ 2:24pm

    WHO SAID??

    Who said they have to be Fair? Balanced? CHEAP on what our states and gov do??

    YEARS ago when the states and FED, ran their own services it was Somewhat cheap.. THEN it was reminded of 2 things..
    The fed/State was not supposed to run its OWN business if a corp was doing the same in competition..
    AND KICK BACKS ARE COOL..esp if you OWN part of the company..

    There are a few words for this..Anyone know them??
    Conspiracy?
    Undo influence?
    more??

  • May 14th, 2018 @ 1:56pm

    Even without Sesta/fosta..

    Its for the Children is correct..

    JUST the creation of this LAW, and the interview is going to FORCE THESE PEOPLE UNDERGROUND..

    You have taken the RABBIT out of the HOLE and explained to him HOW we hunt rabbits, THEN RELEASED HIM..
    SOON, every rabbit will know HOW you hunt them..

    You have made a pamphlet, a book, a FLAG to wave over everything ABOUT THIS... And those rabbits are going to DIG DEEPER, LEARN WHEN HUNTING SEASON IS...then HIDE someplace else..

    YOU have focused on 1 avenue of the SOURCE(the internet) and NOT the others..
    The internet is very Deep, and many things can be hidden, and these person WERE IDIOTS TO POST TO A PUBLIC LISTING... THEY MADE A MISTAKE, and you are thinking a Bill like this is going to solve WHAT??
    YOU WONT see this in public now..
    You will go DEEPER into the net to find it..IT WILL STILL BE THERE..eating your carrots..

  • May 14th, 2018 @ 1:25pm

    Logic rules??

    I find it fun that they didnt understand that THERE IS A DIFFERENCE between good/bad...IN EVERYTHING..

  • May 12th, 2018 @ 1:06pm

    Re: Police state

    I just figured that After the Judge TOLD THEM, they would do Something proper..
    NOPE.

    ACTING, as the person would SUE THEM is scaring the SPIT out of them..
    Give the money back AND A NEW TICKET TO ANYWHERE

    Then DONT install their software...

  • May 12th, 2018 @ 3:02am

    Police state

    And the cops dont even know the rules..
    EVEn when the judge TELLS THEM..

  • May 10th, 2018 @ 12:42pm

    Watched it happen to many times..

    For all this BS..
    How many understand that the PEOPLE paid for it..
    Corps pay for nothing, and just raise prices to cover the expense..
    They raise prices to ADD facilities, that were designed to SELL POWER TO OTHER STATES..and that states persons, PAY for all of it, and dont even get a CUT of the profits..
