    The funding also benefits urban schools. So all those kids that will be applying for jobs - they need good broadband just like kids in rich districts.
    Because they didnt pay for it. If they want fast broadband, they can pay for it, instead of making ME pay for it. Do I make them pay for MY fast broadband? No, I pay comcast for that.

    Wow, thanks for the laugh. No, it can't. Well, not unless we're willing to accept a lot more plane crashes than we have currently.

    Yeah. Sorry you think helping out kids in poor schools is a bad use of your taxdollars. I think it's a great use of our taxdollars.

    And you, the passenger, are going to analyze the maintenance procedures, training procedures, and pilot duty times of the airline you're flying on?

    Yes it can, and it would do a better job. Lower prices, more competition, higher quality.

    I dont think youre actually sorry. And you can think what you want. You cant force others to comply.

    I can't. But I can make my opinions known to my representatives who can enforce fees.

    Not getting all schools good broadband access means you are hobbling the group of students in the schools that can't afford it. They already have plenty of strikes against them.

    And yes, I am sorry that you think helping out kids in poor schools is a bad use of your tax dollars. That means, in my opinion, that you have a set of values I don't agree with and I think you would be better off if you were more compassionate. So I am sorry for you.
