He has a point. Some ISPs are so bad, it’s like they’re competing against themselves and losing.

Not enough competition? Redefine it!
Slow internet? Redefine it!

American Exceptionalism is really just redefining reality to match one’s own mediocre expectations.

Isn’t only having one health insurer - ie., lack of competition - a main point in repub’s critique of ‘failing’ Obamacare? I’m sure if we pointed out this inconsistency in their logic they’ll rectify their stances.

I am redefining “effective competition” to include having several parallel governments.


#7

Premium mediocre?


#8

I just love the whole concept of a market with “one competitor.” Breathtaking.

I’m not sure whether mediocre is the right word here; for me it seems to imply at least some sort of connection with reality and sanity.
