... so you're saying there isn't enough capitalism? I would agree... your wording sounded like you were blaming capitalism for dumb things the government does.

If you're saying the issue is that the free market is not being permitted to address the situation by allowing competing interests to force a reasonable product quality standard at a competitive price... then I agree.

I know it is a good thing but you do anyway. You use the fact that I have a record against me while of course be shielded from counter claims against your own record because you are a coward.

No ad hominem from you will be accepted. We're going to skip over any other reference to me or you because neither is relevant to the discussion. And even if they were, you are personally unable to make any argument of that nature being an AC. End of story. ... reading through your post to see if you have anything to say that isn't an ad hominem... nothing.

Your post is null. Try again.

not when the license is not generally offered to anyone on reasonable terms.

Lets say I say anyone can do a thing... they just need a license... and then I make a point of never issuing such licenses to anyone except two companies under any circumstances.

That's a de facto ban.

De jure you can make any claim you want but it won't be intellectually honest in the face of a de facto ban.

Look guys... we can jerk each other off until our eyes melt... but at the end of the day the reality is the reality is the reality. And we can either get real here or all we're doing is jerking each other off.

The de facto reality is that only a few large companies are ever issued these licenses and acquiring these licenses is unreasonable for anyone else.

Even google is having a hard time obtaining these licenses on places where the duopolies are strong. That should give you an idea of how fucking stupidly impossible it is for anyone to get a foot in the door when multi billion dollar corporations are saying that they can't even fucking bribe their way in most of the time for a reasonable fee.

I was reading a long complaint from Centurylink that cox/time warner are blocking them from service provision in some areas.

I've had this argument a million times on this board and it always boils down to some fool that will reflexively make any fucking stupid argument he can think of to defend the status quo. It is not credible.

"The cable companies rape us and the socialists salivate at the chance of nationalizing things because a monopolized market has been created where no one is allowed to compete."

That is what I said. Now... I never said nor implied congress. I can show bills if you want. But I won't permit you to strawman my position by redefining my words as other than they were.

If you accept that you have no power to change my argument then I can move on. If you refuse to accept that then we really can't go anywhere because I will not tolerate a strawman.

Every attempt simply outputs: Error line 1

I didn't say anything about congress until you asked for a citation and I gave a listing of different options.

Saying I made it sound like congress was full of something when I didn't reference congress at all is a non-starter.

Rephrase your argument of I'm going to assume you're too triggered and I won't be able to have a productive discussion.

I have hallmarks because i'm not an AC shithead that hides his history.

You have nothing because you hides his history.

Thus like most AC shitheads you presume to use my lack of cowardice against me yet of course when I point out your lack of a record you're going to feel that is unfair somehow.

On any issue that regards me as a person or a poster you can eat every dick in the universe. You have no right to do that absent at least logging in.

As to who responded to whom...there were people below you that responded to you. Your inability to read is not my problem.

Anyway... as I said, someone else already dealt with you in this thread. You can continue with me but since you're such a degenerate piece of shit I'm just going to use those opportunities to shit talk.

If you want a real discussion... log in. If you don't, and you start opening your stupid posts with something like "oh here is something I know about this poster because he logs in unlike me"... I'm going to assume you just want to shitpost. Which is fine. I can shit post right back at you.

If you want to be serious... be serious. If you want to be treated like a rampant fuckwit...then carry on as you are now.

Any of them. You want individual campaigns cited, speeches made, bills put to the floor or what?

Because asking for something like this is really sort of baffling to me.

Why would you be surprised that a socialist would want to nationalize something? That's sort of their go to answer for everything.

Citation on what? The franchises?

Further, the issue is local... but generally consistent throughout the country. The law was federal but it was repealed I think in the mid 90s. Regardless, if you look at what backbone bandwidth costs... basically nothing... you can see that the only justifiable cost would be running from the trunk to the house. The problem with the fee system is that if you then price out the cost of fiber per person... and work in depreciation... The costs drop to something like ten dollars per person assuming total replacement every 10 years which is conservative.

Yep and its quiet affordable. I've done the math. I can personally afford to wire my neighborhood. When you say "do you know how much this costs" you're likely talking about an entire city all in one go.

That's like asking "Do you know how much it would cost to build 2000 sandwich shops"... Just talking about me running cable in my own area.

And if it were so expensive that I wouldn't be able to do it, then you wouldn't need to make it illegal to stop me. you do because you know fucking well that I would if I were not legally forbidden.

Which means you're either suffering from weapons grade cognitive dissonance or you're just telling stupid lies.

Because here is the thing... if you REALLY thought the cost structure would stop me... you'd just rely on that. You don't. Which means you either know it won't and are lying... or you were told some bullshit by some people that knew better and you're so mind fucked by it that you can't really process this on your own.

Either way... pitiful.

Coward that won't even use a fake name presumes to sockpuppet out some stupid response... no need... others already dealt with you before I even noticed your stupid response. Also, nice to know you're following me around the forum now.

I don't follow you around... I don't care about you. But you... you seem to think I'm worth following.

Seems someone matters more to one than the other. Another win for me.
