One should wake when one wakes. One should spend at least the 1st half hour wordlessly. Then, only after sitting in the sun for a few minutes should they begin purposeful activities such as preparing for work.
If you're using an alarm clock and/or lights in the morning to start your day at an unseemly hour, you too are using technology to warp the natural order of life.
Night is when thoughts run deep and great ideas arise.
In many places in the U.S., pulse dialing still works.
I'm on the do-not-call list, so the call is illegal. If the 'product' or 'service' is fraudulent, then the call is illegal. If the call is a robocall, then it is illegal (with few exceptions).
If you want to learn the true character of the people calling you, make a click on the line so it sounds like you hung up. After they have heaped abuse upon you (thinking you can't hear them), ask them to repeat it and listen to them swallowing their own tongue as they hang up.
So you personally choose to flagellate yourself daily so you figure that gives you the moral right to expect it of everyone else? I choose to stay up late. Why don't you quit being a lazy bum and stay up too?
Imagine your delight if someone breezed in and dragged you out of bed at 3:00 A.M. every day and expected you to be not just coherent but actually enthusiastic.
Yes, I would like to see the bills please.
Well, only Congress can nationalize something. The local city council can't do it, now can they? The very word "nationalize" implies the federal government.
Now, you offered bills put to the floor as an option and I picked it, so where are they?
How about a bill put to the floor? Or even a transcript of a Congressional debate? You make it sound as if we have a Congress packed with socialists who might actually have an effect or cause serious consideration, I don't see any.
The closest I see are local governments laying fiber within their jurisdiction.
What "socialist" have you seen advocating to nationalize internet service? I haven't seen any.
The only calls for nationalization I have seen are for health care where the market has clearly failed and a few calls for large banks at the time they had their hands out for a trillion dollar bailout.
No. When I go to a main branch of my bank downtown, they have a LOT more money out in the tills and are a much bigger target (think hundreds of thousands in cash and being a bank it they can't just run it to the bank mid-day). They have just high counters and one security guard who looks to be in his late '60s. No Plexiglas.
Comcast has the security measures because their customer service is terrible enough to inspire violence in regular everyday people (there have been incidents).
