Promos are good, but....

Instead of doing promotion after promotion and making it sound like we are all getting a great deal, why not create reasonable plans with good value and cut out all the crap?

Corporate America - that is why. I wish I had more to say, but it's the sad truth.

Yeah I think you are a little, scratch that, A LOT off with the slaves comment! Slaves didn't have a choice, YOU DO!

What nobody fails to ever comment on is the network of both Verizon and AT&T and how they dwarf their competitors. Sure T-Mobile and Sprint work well in metropolitan areas and in some rural but they're not even close to the network you get with Red and Blue.

Which brings me to my point, you want a solid network well its going to cost. I am a AT&T client and travel frequently so I know the reach of their network and I am very satisfied. I have never got the feeling that corporate america is trying to screw me out of money because I believe you pay for quality. And knowing what I do about the wireless industry I can for ...

And you know both Sprint and T-mobile have extensive roaming agreements with both Red and Blue correct? So both T-mobile and Sprint phones will work in these places you mention too. I've traveled cross country quite a few times and have had native Sprint service or roaming 95% of the time. I don't travel away from my city much or live far enough in the sticks to justify paying the prices red and blue charge. For my needs Sprint works just fine. And when I've traveled I've been able to use my phone when I needed to. I understand if you want higher quality you must pay for it. And that's exactly why I pay for Verizon FIOS. But for wireless I can't justify the prices. Especially since roaming agreements exist. However if they didn't then my pos...

"the rich can only be rich if they suppress and keep others poo"

Life is not a zero sum game, the idea that prosperity is a pizza and if one person eats too many slices than someone else is left with nothing but an empty box is simply ignorant. Economics simply does not work like that, in fact, it is complete nonsense.

China and India are nonsense? Even Mexico and a lot of South American countries are exploited by our corporate greed. We esstebtially use sweatshop style labor and turn people into slaves, so WE can live better lives and buy cheap, imported crap from China, of which Wal-Mart is a HUGE fan of.


It hasn't gotten to the point where it's THAT bad here, but income inequality ...

Okay, I had to take this to a computer since my iPhone isn't sufficient enough, and I had numerous typos.

I seriously cannot believe people still buy into and eat this complete and utter bullshit they're fed from pro-corporate capitalists.

The fact that you believe life isn't a zero sum game blows my mind, and to the other one whom thought the whole "slavery" thing was a bit too far - I would agree in this country, but then I would ask you to define "slavery" - and the perception one feels to be a "slave", if you will.

The fact is, there are 6 major corporations that own the ENTIRE media and news outlets in this country. They tell you and they rave about capitalism - because people in this country are so dumb, that th...

Good sir, you have a way with words! That was pure poetry! It's a little more reassuring knowing that this mindset is growing. I try to step out of my social circle and get other people's POV, but here you are. Thank you!
