As someone stuck on 4G as my best option for home internet, I would pay $300/month for unlimited (and unthrottled) bandwidth in a frickin' heartbeat, and that even limited to purely domestic use.

As it is, after overage charges, I usually pay half that for 10+10, and that's living about as close to the "digital bohemian" life I can stand.

And FWIW, AT&T currently considers 22GB/month "unlimited", beyond which they "prioritize" your data to a trickle.

Few if any pundits said "Obama is sitting president of a very divided nation", when the fact is, he was. Just as GWB was before him. And so on.

It is also true that Hillary didn't get 50% of the vote, so more people voted against her than voted for her (same with Trump). Again, so what? None of that matters, and is just noise.

The Left in this country has always had problems with motivating people to get them to the polls.

That's because it is hard to get dead people to vote ;) :-D

No, I think Palestine should have taken the Two State solution offered by Israel a few years ago, but refused and went on a rampage over it.

The problem is, you think that Palestine wants a two state solution, and they don't. It has been offered, repeatedly, and they keep refusing.

And I wonder why you don't mention the Palestinians "Illegally" launching rockets into Israel. Or the time that Israel pulled its settlements out of Gaza, only to have them turned into rocket launching sites. I'm talking functioning industry and farms being walked away from and turning back into desert because ... Palestinians don't want anything the Jews had built.

Palestinians are functionally incapably of peace at this time.

It is because Left Wingers keep parroting "Clinton won the Popular Vote" as if that mattered. When liberals offer that up, it opens up every other comparison out there. Hillary lost the election, popular vote doesn't count. If you wanted it to count, the vote totals would change, substantially. A lot of Republicans in California don't vote because what is the point?

California hasn't had a Republican senator in so long that I can't actually remember who it was.

Arnold was Governor, because well ... he's Arnold. Nothing happened on his watch because both houses of the Legislature were D controlled. Now we have "Moonbeam" a complete and utter nutjob.

I've lived in California my whole life. I've lived in both Southern California, and Northern California, and have a pretty good idea how things are going here. Taxes are pushing just about everyone to the breaking point, and even left wing supporting industrialists are moving their plants to other parts of the country because of all the taxes and regulations.

It is so bad, that almost a 1/3 of California (land) wants to form a new state.

But if all you hear is the echo chamber, your views will be skewed.

Here's what I'm mainly worried about -- now that Trump's President, the gloves come off of every single loud-mouthed, opinionated angry citizen who loves to moan and complain. By providing an example of "acceptable" behavior via his constant personal attacks on people

As opposed to all the race rioting spurred on by Obama's stupid comments about Trevon, Harvard Professors, Hands Up Don't Shoot, inviting BLM to the White House?

Or do those don't count because you agree with the cause?
