Comment: CATV vs OnDemand (Score 1) 225

Think about it, this is the beginning of the end for CATV. It will likely only exist for another 10 - 15 years as a dominant form of Infotainment Delivery. Heck with HBO offering Streaming only, I can only imagine it will be getting worse for CATV providers. My estimation is that in Ten-Fifteen years, only "old people" will have CATV, and CATV will be the next industry killed off by the internet (similar to Newspapers today)

How about somebody with mild schizophrenia? Autism? Depression? In some of these cases, it's really hard to tell what's "can't" and what's "won't".

Can't is an ability. Won't is an attitude.

Every case you mentioned, as an aspect of "can't" not "won't",

Stephen Hawking is a fantastic example of someone who "can't" but does anyway. Why? Because he has an attitude that allows him to. Making excuse for outliers doesn't do them any good.

Uh, hello genius, capitalistic enterprises can't hire people with no skills. You know how many welfare recipients can't even show up to work on time?

I also can't help but notice the problems were all on the school's side...alternative communication methods could have been used, but darn it it's just too hard! (for us)

We must eradicate capitalism and the free market! Forward to equalism! When everyone's income will be considered decent by a Pakistani bricklayer.

that being the case, we have a responsibility to make sure the basic needs of everyone are met.

Who is "we" ?

What definition of "basic needs" are we using today?

" Everyone" meaning 100%

What defines "are met" ?

I am pretty sure that your definition and my definition of "basic need" are different. I would consider sex to be a basic need, that everyone should have, and not everyone's needs are being met.

When you live in a society that kicks you down the bottom of the social ladder and hands you a shovel to dig further down, you can expect some to give up.

The only ones I know telling people they can't make it are liberals. "Your too stupid/poor/wrong color we have to help you! "

There are plenty of people proving your assertion wrong. Dr Ben Carson is a great example.

I have nothing against people smoking pot. I'm sick of people claiming to be "hungry" and "looking for work" ;) ;) filling our Downtown Park with Pot smoke. Or do you think they should get a pass because they are "homeless"?

Oh, most of the "homeless" are that way because of poor life choices...
