It is free markets that keeps the US so highly rated among the developed nations in providing internet service to its citizens and, as everyone knows, the US is all about providing infrastructure that encourages competition.

It's as if they don't understand that there are real costs involved when warming a space up. Besides, those who are cold can add any number of layers of clothing, those who are too warm can only strip so far.
