    There is no law that says FedEx has to charge more than the USPS. They cost more because they aren't nearly as efficient.

    Uhh, people speak through their local government and do want them to. Do you really think everyone is thrilled with Comcast and hates the idea of Comcast having competition?

    Where is this regulation? I googled this and the prices for different shipping speeds and weights vary.

    Guess it puts me in the middle of all of that one way or another.
    In your view, would you perceive the state ban on local communities providing their own internet to be unwise if not destructive of the principle of local governments being able to do what they feel is proper governance?

    I was debating someone on some point regarding the Roman empire, and in "support" of his claim he linked to a five gazillion page wall of text. I hit "ctrl f" and typed "Rome" and then "Roman." Nada.
