    So like Comcast and Verizon will own everyone before long.

    Should be real healthy for consumers.

    We do not have a government anymore. Unless you call an organization of lobbyists and white collar criminals 'government'.

    Well it's only in place in three cities. Nashville is working on their plans to get it approved hopefully so we will see. It will take time, but I keep hoping it will get into Nashville then get out to surrounding areas like a Brentwood where we live.

    in other buyout news, Youtube is buying Twitch for $1billion which seems pretty cheap considering the going rates of other big time sales recently.

    Interesting note, Google bought Youtube in 2006 for $1.65billion
