Yeah, there are a dozen ways to securely implement this policy, even if it is stupid. I don't see home wifi being a problem for any well run network. There are probably dozen ways to detect and remove them, and just as many ways to mitigate them so they aren't a problem in the first place.

Your right eye is blind, your only seeing out the left one.
-hint... There are way more donations to Republicans by these banks.
and these hedge funds,
-although the hedge funds have way more independent group spending, probably because the hav less shareholders to answer to...

Time Warner does seem to lean Democratic, but those donations are lifetime and I don't see any for Clinton in the recent election cycles.

For a minute I thought you were going to disappear in a puff of logic.
