(Just a PSA: for any readers who are unaware, the Great Depression was the result of dust-bowl drought coupled with nonexistent soil management or crop/livestock rotation.)
Here's a PSA for you: the Great Depression was a worldwide economic depression, it was not the result of drought and poor farming practices.


Point of order, it was only the 'Great' Depression in the USA, for the rest of the world it was just a depression that was over in about two years.

We were lucky enough to have a President who meddled with policies and ended up extending our local depression for over a decade.

I live in Nebraska.
South central Omaha.
I work along the Missouri River.
I can see it from my office.
I own a farm in eastern Iowa.
I work in a business that gives me insight and info that you may not have.
Please stop being so condescending.

Happy for you.

I am not trying to be condescending. I am telling you my life experience. What is condescending about discussing topography and regional political attitudes?



I'm telling you the things I know about Kansas and Nebraska. I have nothing "against" them. I just don't want to live there! Why are you taking it personally?

I know the topography and climate and local ag. I chose to leave it to you expert farmers. One of my aunts married a farm manager and they have a hobby farm now. There's nothing wrong with that.


I just don't want to live that lifestyle. And it is a bald-faced FACT that some regions do not receive NPR broadcasting, but only Limbaugh and Hannity on the loudest talk radio available to the small market area.

I'm sure in Omaha you have access to NPR and the internet. Utilize them. My only issue is that people who don't have access to real information and knowledge are at a disadvantage.

Go Blackshirts!

There you go being all uppity again.
I'm just going to let it go because you said "Go Blackshirts"

And I have never mentioned NPR.

Do you know how that electricity is made for your precious electric car?

I assume you do, since you're so educated.


So sorry to be so tardy in responding to this.... Here's my story, and thanks for asking!!

The car I am driving is ten years old. I knew next to nothing about electric or hybrid cars until Feb the 2nd of this year.

I needed to replace a money-pit CRV (Asian guy sold it to me knowing it had been wrecked and needed a timing belt - he concealed those facts from me. I propped it up as best I could (it nickeled and dimed me for 10 months to the tune of another $1500) but then it died on my watch (timing belt).

My mechanic is a super laid back bearded guy who has his own garage that he bought from my previous car-angel, who sold his shop to go work at CarMax because customers were unappreciative. He was a fantastic mechanic and overall guy. Anyway - so, the new owner of the shop took my CRV and fixed it a bit more, and offered to sell it back to me, but I declined. He has since sold it.

In between the dumping of the CRV and the hookup with the Hybrid, he let me borrow a running Toyota corolla so I could commute between my relatives and my neighborhood.

A great friend of the family and a relative offered to help me out.
So now I have a Prius. Big whoop. They are ubiquitous.

Anyway, before acquiring it, I thought they all had to be plugged in. Here in metro Kansas City new campuses are including electric stations for the Teslas.

But the hybrid is not like that. My car runs on gasoline, and while it is running it is charging a bank of batteries that resemble books on a shelf. The brakes' rotation works as a 'charger' for those batteries. So the engine runs on gasoline, but only when there isn't enough charge in the battery.

I get 45 miles to the gallon.


At stops of more than two seconds, it turns itself off. It backs out of my garage without even using the gasoline engine.
It doesn't need to be plugged in. It reminded me of a Soyuz when I first got in it. Joystick instead of lever or stick.....silent starting....GPS built in, etc. It's actually obsolete by now, so not "precious" at all. Value about $7000.

Anything else? (Yes, I am so educated.)

Because they live out in western plains in small towns that don't have wireless or even broadband. They have dial-up. There are a substantial number of people who don't have a computer at all, even in the cities.

It's been a goal of Bill Gates for years to get everyone connected.

I used to be a car salesman (I know, I know) so I know quite a bit about them.

It was pretty interesting learning about them when I first started and was researching my products.

There's this thing called satellite internet.

It' available for isolated communities.

It works well. Don't even have cell service where I'm at but have high speed internet.

You were not aware of the service?

No, you are being deliberately Ignorant and very quick with the name calling and accusations.
Just like your claim that FoxNews was schooled by a farmer, once again you show that you are incapable of even the simplest research.
Like I said, high speed access via satellite internet is available to anyone in the USA.

What do you mean lame?
Talk about reality?
The reality is that high speed internet access via satellite is available to anyone in the lower 48.
You were not aware of this and now you don't know what to do.
How about, say, oh, I wasn't aware of that, and then move along?
Instead you dig up images from 2007 to try to prove me wrong?
You have 0 credibility.

Screw Politics. The world need to be updated to RTS video games. If a country is blinking 'out of oil' it gets oil. That's how it should work.

Competition only works with opponents. Capitalism is poison when thinking of a Global economy.

Bipartisan Group of Lawmakers Urge Trump to Include Rural Broadband Deployment in Infrastructure Plans


January 31, 2017
Press Release
“The digital divide between rural and urban America is significant” members write as they highlight need for broadband infrastructure


WASHINGTON – A bipartisan coalition of 71 members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to President Donald Trump today urging him to include investments in rural broadband connectivity in his forthcoming infrastructure proposal.

The lawmakers highlighted the importance of broadband connectivity in attracting and retaining businesses, communication between family and friends, timely responses to an emergency response, agricultural efficiency, and access to educational materials.

The letter was led by Reps. Peter Welch (D-VT), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), Mark Pocan (D-WI), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Dave Loebsack (D-IA), and Bob Latta (R-OH). The bipartisan Senate Broadband Caucus sent a similar letter today led by Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Angus King (I-ME), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), and John Boozman (R-AR).

“In the 21st Century, high speed internet access is no longer a luxury amenity, but rather an essential service for homes and businesses in this interconnected world,” the lawmakers write. “Unfortunately, rural Americans in our districts lack sufficient broadband infrastructure to take advantage of this explosion of technology and economic possibility…. As you consider the parameters of your infrastructure proposal to Congress, we write to urge you to include investments that will bring the benefits of broadband connectivity to rural America.”



Anything else you'd like to learn today?

Here, how about another linky dink:

Letter To The POTUS From Bipartisan Group (on letterhead, with signatures)

or two:You are wrong

Some wonder why two-thirds of the American people think Democrats are out of touch.

The explanation is media coverage.

A good example occurred yesterday. Hillary Clinton made the point that many areas of rural America don’t have high-speed Internet and this could be a cause of slow growth in these areas. She went on to point out that some areas don’t even have cell phone coverage.

Satellite Internet Explains why dial-up is still what they use and why it's so slow, and other things you thought you knew

On the Web right now? You’re in the minority — most people still don’t have Internet

Yeah, that one talks about on a global level.


Oh, and just a fun little fact: It was Obama who orchestrated the Connect America Fund which encouraged the accessibility of Internet for everyone. (Socialism! Oh noez!)

And...just because the tech exists doesn't mean that it's everywhere. You aren't aware of "dead zones"? "No Service" areas? The fact that not everywhere has the equipment needed to ACCESS the fancy satellites? That there are no companies going there to provide dishes? Just having a satellite doesn't provide access if you don't have the equipment.

Nice chatting.

What is your major malfunction?

Is your ego so large that you cannot be shown that you are indeed wrong?

If you live in an isolated area and want to have high speed access to the internet you call up Hughesnet and figure out how to get service.

Why don't you call them if you don't believe me.

Like I said I'm in an area that does not even have a cell phone signal but I have high speed internet.


The map here shows the designated areas of the United States where the HughesNet satellites offer high speed Internet. As you can see, HughesNet's two satellites cover the entire United States making HughesNet Internet service available everywhere. Call 855-410-1951 to speak to one of our Broadband Internet Specialists to find out exactly which Internet service plans are available in your area, current HughesNet deals or offers, or to schedule an installation!






And...just because the tech exists doesn't mean that it's everywhere.

Yes, the tech is everywhere in the lower 48, sorry you are just oh so wrong, I don't understand people like you who will argue tirelessly in an effort to be right, even though they are wrong. It is a mental condition of some sort.



You aren't aware of "dead zones"? "No Service" areas?
Be the same as for satellite television, if you live on the side of a mountain and don't have line of sight to the satellite you have to work around that.

Lets put it this way buzzywigs, do you think that people in the bush don't have access to satellite TV?




The fact that not everywhere has the equipment needed to ACCESS the fancy satellites?

What equipment are you talking about? The dish and the modem? Your argument verges on retardation. This is supplied by the ISP, again, phone them and figure it out for yourself. Why is the satellite fancy?




Explains why dial-up is still what they use and why it's so slow, and other things you thought you knew

Tells me nothing I don't know. Do you consider 25 MBS down and 3 MBS up slow? Latency is high as the signal has to go up from your dish to the satellite which is a longer path. First person shooters will be laggy. Data is capped depending upon your package. I have 100 gigs a month, more than enough. If I exceed that limit, the bandwidth is throttled to 256 kilobits or I can pay for more.




Anything else you'd like to learn today?
I have learned nothing from you other than that you are incredibly stubborn and will never admit that you are wrong.

Whoever is reading this thread will see you for who you are, a member who will argue even if they are wrong, your credibility is affected by behaving like that. I'm sorry you were ignorant as to the availability of high speed satellite internet, but it's not my fault you continue to defy reason and ignore it's existence.

Perhaps you would like to wire all of rural America so the have cable television, well thats just incredibly stupid in this day and age of satellite communications.




A good example occurred yesterday. Hillary Clinton made the point that many areas of rural America don’t have high-speed Internet and this could be a cause of slow growth in these areas. She went on to point out that some areas don’t even have cell phone coverage.

Tell Hillary to count me amongst those that don't have a cell signal where I'm at. Tell her that I do have high speed internet where I'm at, satellite is great technology.
