Where did the U.N. meme come from? Citizens United is more of a threat than the U.N. Did oyu copy and paste this drivel from ALEC?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Money is a form of speech thanks to citizens united so they are no bribes, they are "protected political speech!" FUCK YOU CONSERVATIVES!
The are incorporated meaning made corporeal as an act of state, they have no more inherent right to petition government than a my shoe. The share holders, employees, executives, and customers can petition on their behalf.
Put a deposit on everything sold. The company gets an interest free loan for the life of the product and people are motivated to pick up trash. Yes I know its complicated but microdots or chemical signatures make even plastic bags traceable.
That's the pussy way out. We should just release top level predators into suburban neighborhoods.
Pirates are the cause of global warming.
An semiotic analysis of Obama and Reagan showed them to be two of the most similar presidents in recent history. "The things you hate the most you are most guilty of yourself."
What a pussy you are. We need to go to Iain M. Banks' Dweller approach from the Algebraist and hunt our children. If they can make it to adulthood welcome, if not well, fuck em.
If your child is harmed you sue vector's pediatrician and parents for gross negligence.
The assets of the company do not vanish instantly as the stock price drops.Once we have 51% of the vote we can vote in a new consumer friendly board of directors to fire the current executives. Comcast is one of the worst run companies in America. It has the worst customer service and only maintains it function by being a monopoly. I have a friend who works with technology provider and Comcast has blown 3 deals with them strictly out of incompetence and laziness.
1st question. You don't upgrade during the transition you upgrade after. Just the roughly 2 billion they paid in dividends could be put to use.
2nd Tv is already dead is is all out IP bandwidth. The last mile doesn't have to be fiber coax is just fine. Also I don't want them to magically maintain a company with no customers, I want the executives fired and the middle management fired and rebuild a customer centric customer own utility. It not a pipe dream it a well worn business model.
3rd Lessig Nader is a joke. You could have one of on the board anyway it doesn't really matter as the economic collapse showed us many boards are just a nepotistic rubber stamp. My Dad still goes through every proxy vote to vote against people he thinks have responsibility for the collapse.
4th it doesn't have to go completely bankrupt, all we need is 51%.
Rent seeking behavior; it is cheaper to buy a congressman than to build a better business.
I have been investing since I was 12. I called the last two major collapses to within 3 months. the 2000's bubble by asking why Rambus was able to lock intel into a exclusive deal and the housing collapse by looking at the number of people getting an associates degree in real estate (learned that by reading that that was an indicator for the tech bubble) "When economic profit is available more people will enter the market and drive the profit to zero." As to your direct criticism why would any institutional investor keep a stock that was being driven into the ground in a hostile customer driven takeover?
Time Warner wouldn't be able to buy them if we did the same thing to them.
That was a typo. I meant pay your bill and buy stock.
The infrastructure is paid for by retained earnings and not paid out to executive compensation and dividends. Also the existing infrastructure in many places has been totally deprecated. we have had cable since 1984 at my house. They have paid for their capital costs MANY times over. If google can provide gigabit fiber from scratch a a lower price than cable even with content and ad revenue then Comcast could too. Their business model is based on artificial scarcity both in terms of bandwidth & dividing voice, data, TV.
Once we own the company as a customer owned utility it functions exactly like my electrical utility which provides excellent customer service at some of the lowest power prices in the nation. You have to pay your bill but it is lower and the company on the other end works for you. I can see how my typo made this unclear.
If every household in America bought $150 in Comcast stock each month instead of paying their cable bill it would take ~3 years to buy them out. If everyone canceled their account and bought stock it would take less time. Kickstarter's limit is too small for this idea btw. Then we vote out the current board and replace them with Lessig, Nader et al. and BAM gigabit bidirectional IPV6 with al a carte channels.
Too communist for you? Go fuck your self.
The dirtiest web site I have ever seen was "we hurt the ones we love" Real Doll repair.
