Oops... I thought the title to the thread would say something else!! Please moderator, fix my screwup!!

It is supposed to say:"Poor homes to get $10 cable broadband next year"

. . . and Obama thinks everyone deserves a college education (at our expense). I think adopting a pet from the pound is a good allegory, they charge you for it so you will treat it with some respect. There are too many college grads now that shouldn't be.

this was done as part of allowing them to have a monopoly, since there is no competition for internet service in many areas of the country....

There's no competitive internet service here either, (in fact there ain't ANY), and I'm poor desert trash, will someone pay for my satelite internet?

Isn't one of the OWS demands is a free college education for everyone?

lame attack, sure some people are, just as some tea partiers want far far more insane things.....

a free college education program isn't a bad idea as long as it is towards a worthwhile degree, america will not stay ahead by having a poorly educated workforce.

For those who choose to do so what's the problem? Whether it's an academic or technical degree it's giving people opportunities. Not like you're forcing people, just giving them an opportunity.

Aren't a lot of the OWSers college grads? Do we want more of them?

Sooooo, who makes the decision who goes to college, who doesn't and what they study. Sounds very, ohhh, what's the word I'm looking for? I know. Communistic.
