Comment Re:Then 38,928 Incorporated Cities in US are "Smal (Score 1) 114

If NO ONE else were interested in servicing your entire town sure. Even then, this clause would apply if and only if they ONLY serviced your town and nothing else. Unless your town is 100 miles away from anything else, I don't see that being a real problem in Denmark.

Reno is not a bad example of a town literally in the middle of nowhere.

You would probably think of it as living on the Moon and net neutrality would probably be low on your list of complaints.

> so in your mind, treating people the way you would want to be treated is fascism?

That is such a stupid way to put things. You have no idea how people want to be treated. You very likely couldn't handle being treated the way that that many of us would happily tolerate or even prefer.

That's not even getting into the interesting stuff.

You would melt into a puddle of goo if I applied the Golden Rule you.

Oddly enough, one of the best teams I was ever on was a group where people didn't collectively have steel rods up their asses. It ran well and efficiently. Teamwork was excellent. The boss was demanding but did a very good job at cultivating talent being much more effective at genuine "social justice" than most people that like to whine about it loudly.

It actually worked better than a climate of terror inspired by threats of litigation.

Despite the apparent "evil locker room atmosphere", people didn't push individual tolerances too much. Any real nonsense would have been dealt with most severely. If there was a problem you dealt with it then and there.

This Uber situation is basic leadership fail rather than a lack of political correctness or decorum.

That's not lying, that's disputing the facts.

The innaugration photos were "liberal narrative" at it's best. Bowling green was one of those "foiled by the FBI" things that the liberal media is happily engaging in itself this very moment.

The whole "Russia" thing is simply delusional. No one that has ever stepped out the liberal bubble takes it seriously. A good portion of the country has hated Hillary since she was first lady. They didn't need any encouragement from the Russians.

OMG a wait in line at the DMV. That never happens to "privileged people". Save your sob story. We've all been there. It's just that it's not an option for most of us because we have to DRIVE to WORK. The sh*t isn't optional so we put up with it. We don't whine and make excuses about it.

What you're describing is pandering to the "can't be bothered" crowd. They simply don't value voting. That's their problem, not society's problem.

Obama deported plenty without them. This is the problem with people on both sides. They only see what they want to see. Their preferred source of propaganda will feed into this.

Nearly all sources of "journalism" are now shameless party rags that have a predefined narrative. Anything outside the narrative gets dropped. They also may tell blatant falsehoods. Their version of the facts may bear no resemblance to reality. Unless you have a first hand source of your own, it's difficult to catch onto this but very glaring once it happens.

So called "news" has become entertainment and media has cranked up the nonsense in order to keep eyeballs.

Both sides are equally rubbish. You need to see the same story from different bias points just to get something remotely reasonable.

After the last election, this should be obvious to anyone with any sort of capacity for independent thought.

So, some Ivory tower weenies are whining that something isn't perfect therefore it must be rubbished as a menace. Where have we heard this before? This should be ancient news to all of the peanut gallery here. Anyone here buying into this nonsense should just hand in your geek card now.

I'm the kind of person they claim to be championing and I say they need to STFU and try something else. They might suck at it less.

Watch Big Bang Theory sometime.

We still have this stupid idea (encouraged by mass media) that the ER is "the place to go" if you suffer the tiniest little mishap. The fact that patients may now be required to pay a trifling co-pay doesn't really alter the equation all that much.

That moron Wolowitz also needs to carry an Epipen and Sheldon should have one in his First Aid kit.
