    Unscrew the monopoly power, people. Vote OUT the Congressional enablers.

    Unsubscribe. It’s as simple as that. TWC and Comcast have the lowest customer satisfaction rate of all the remaining cable companies. If all those unhappy customers unsubscribe, it would send a real message to the company to change its ways. Most people won’t do that because they care more about getting the Circus Maximus piped into their living room.

    What’s going to be worse is that they also control phone and internet service to a large degree…

    Too bad we don’t have any anti-trust laws.

    Just remember: corporate monopolies, with anti-trust legislation removed by your friends in the “conservative block” in Congress, always lowers prices through “competition”, just like fossil fuels, and the corporate effort to lock up “alternatives” as well.


    Look to Krupp, Bayer, and Farben if you want historical context of the power of corporations in selecting “government”…

    We do have them. The government just stopped enforcing them…

    That used to be a viable alternative here but since everything went digital I doubt I could get any station beyond the local area.
    Back in the analogue days we could get Philly and Baltimore off the antenna.
    Bust the monopoly, I say.

    “That used to be a viable alternative here but since everything went digital I doubt I could get any station beyond the local area.”

    No, it still is a viable alternative. I gave up several of my favorite TV shows. I can watch shows from several different channels via their website, others via Hulu or Netflix. Yes, I had to give up watching some of my favorite shows. I is more important to me to not pay a $100 bill each month for something I don’t use much of than it is for me to watch a couple of television programs. If it’s more important to you to watch those shows, fine. Just own that it is your choice.

    As for phone and internet, check to see if you have local or regional phone companies who can provide service.
