Just google post office deficit. It is insane how much in the red they are.


And yet, every single day, a guy walks past my house and picks up my mail and drops it off.

I'm not arguing that they are a money maker, I'm arguing that this service is reliable, on time, and worth the investment of government funds.

Which it is.

Id rather have a choice on who i want to go through, not be mandated by gov control onwhat comes in and out of my interwebs


I want a choice too.

Since I don't have a choice right now because of corporate oligarchy, I want to be able to have a publically run internet option. You are acting like this means Comcast has to shut down.

But again , the private sector does it better.

Not when it comes to the internet. Do you think it's a good idea for a few companies to be able to extort money from their customers on a whim? Just look at what they did to netflix. Providing free internet to the people is a good thing because then people would be able to freely start researching as to what is going on in this country and the world. this would also be a great benefit to the younger generation seeing how they would have access to the net for researching schoolwork. The Obama hate really blinds people to clear thinking.

The government can't build a working website. How can we trust them to run a reliable internet?

That's the standard reaction on Ats. Obama is doing it so now I hate it. This is just like the whole school lunch fiasco.

A government run internet???? What kind of problems what that cause??? On the plus side it would streamline surveillance for the alphabet agencies! And like GPS, they [our benevolent leaders] would be able to shut it down for reasons of 'national security"!!!

That's weird. I use government websites every day and have never had a problem.

Obama needs to get real.

The future of the net is wireless technology.

And the only reason he wants more people connected is more people to SPY on.

And if it's anything like the ACA website we're screwed.

And if it's anything like the other government ran crap like the VA, SS,medicare,and medicaid.

Were screwed.

Face it people anytime the government acts on the pretense of helping us.

WE GET SCREWED.

Just say no.

So we should allow corporations to have that power instead! It all makes so much sense now.

Especially if it helps expose corrupt governments !!

Is this what Obama really wants?

We're already screwed.

I'd like to get screwed for a fraction of the cost.

Hahaha...sorry

But the idea of "free" government provided Internet is a joke.

What part of the government do you believe is out of the reach of said oligarchy?

Stop the posturing!!! We would just trade on evil for another!!! Lets face it having internet is not a right, despite what people want to believe. It is a convenience, a luxury and if the web collapsed tomorrow people would carry on like they did before it. Everything that you seem to hate about corporations is pretty much the same with government. Except the government gets to create the rules they play by.

Were you around when the internet was created by Al Gore?

Ever Google "Al Gore's Internet"?

Minneapolis already offers 59 square miles of WiFi, and I gotta say, it makes me wish I never moved to St. Paul.

It's really great WiFi, not free, but for the price, it beats the competition.

Can you clarify the question? "Out of reach" implies you think- that I think- there is no connection between the two.
