Debashish Samaddar23,548AVALANCHE – Version 9#avalanche #avalanchecircle  Last time we had 293 public reshares. Excellent work but that's 15 less than Version 7.If you don't share, it doesn't grow and you don't benefit. I've gotten called a spammer for publishing this circle. The least you can do is share it.

Add me to your circles (this helps me notify you in a single step)2. Plus this post  3. Share the post to PUBLIC or to a LARGE, ACTIVE community4.

If you are not in the circle, and want to be in, complete 1-4 and request to be added in comments-------------------------------------------------------------------------If you like being in this circle and benefit from it, please make it easier for me by adding me. Otherwise I have to notify manually through the comments.-------------------------------------------------------------------------The circle is almost at capacity and you have more time to reshare (two weeks). This means the resharing requirement is going to be stricter. You must reshare within the two week period in order to stay in the circle.A.  If you do not want to be in this circle, let me know in the comments, or uncircle me and I'll remove you.B. Please do not delete the reshare or comment that you have shared without sharing as some have done before. Those who have done so have been removed and will be blacklisted.-------------------------------------------------------------------------If you want to join a new social network called Tsū that claims to pay you for engaging with others then follow this link and sign up:http://www.tsu.co/dsamaddar-------------------------------------------------------------------------If you are a blogger, writer, poet, photographer, software developer, etc.. and have a link to share, please tell me about it in the comments.

Dear Plussers- I "stole" this from FB. A dear friend of mine posted this and I want to help. If you feel moved to help, to support, please do. I mostly don't FB, this is my community, here. So I count on you.

Love conquers hate
Help desperately needed. I post this to help somebody who did nothing else but being himself and is faced by hatred and bullying for it. Lukas is a teenager loved and supported by his family. Lukas just recently outed himself in school. His teachers and 'friends' formerly knew him under a different name and as a young girl. The reacttion? Bullying and comments in social media claiming it would be better if he'd be dead or never born. A 'professional' evaluation by one of his teacher, all he wanted was attention.... due to the now unbarable situation, a change of schools seems to be the only solution.

Meet the “Surveillance State Repeal Act” – A Bipartisan Bill to Fully Repeal the Patriot Act

Michael Krieger | Mar 25, 2015 

Revelations about the NSA’s programs reveal the extraordinary extent to which the program has invaded Americans’ privacy. 

I reject the notion that we must sacrifice liberty for security — we can live in a secure nation which also upholds a strong commitment to civil liberties. 

This legislation ends the NSA’s dragnet surveillance practices, while putting provisions in place to protect the privacy of American citizens through real and lasting change.

– Rep. Mark Pocan on the Surveillance State Repeal Act

Whenever I hear “bipartisan bill,” the first thing that pops into my mind is that classic George Carlin quote:

The word bipartisan means some larger-than-usual deception is being carried out.

Nevertheless, when I looked at the sponsors and some of the language being used with regard to the  Surveillance State Repeal Act, it became pretty clear to me that this bill might actually do what it says. 

While I’m unfamiliar with Mark Pocan, I’m familiar with Thomas Massie as a result of his close relationship with one of the few members of Congress I respect, Justin Amash.

Before discussing the bill in question, some background information is helpful. 

While the bill appears to have little chance of going anywhere due to the total embrace of fascism within Congressional leadership, it seems the bill is partly related to position ahead of the expiration of key provisions of the Patriot Act, set to expire on June 1st.

The Hill covered the importance of this earlier in the year. Here are a few excerpts:

In five months, key provisions of the Patriot Act are set to expire, potentially eliminating spying programs that intelligence officials say are critical to keeping the nation safe from terrorists. 

The battle over what changes should be made to that law — and whether it should be reauthorized at all — is likely to be an early test of Republican leaders’ ability to keep their party unified while controlling both chambers of Congress.

“I think there is going to be a very inconvenient and strong difference of opinion within the Republican Party about how to proceed here,” said Kevin Bankston, policy director at the New America Foundation’s Open Technology Institute and a supporter of reforms to the spying law.

On June 1, key portions of the Patriot Act that update the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) are set to expire. 

Among them is Section 215, which the National Security Agency (NSA) has used to authorize the collection of bulk records about millions of U.S. citizens’ phone calls.

Section 215 has been highlighted previously here on this site. See:

NSA Holds “Top Secret” Meeting to Stop Powerful Anti-Spying Amendment

Patriot Act Author Prepares Strong Bill to Rein in NSA Abuses…Calls for Prosecution of James Clapper

The program — which collects only “metadata” about people’s calls, such as which numbers were dialed and when, and not actual conversations — was the most controversial part of Edward Snowden’s leaks about the NSA, and has become the prime focus of privacy advocates on Capitol Hill.

But supporters of the NSA are fighting back, and say the debate over phone data has overshadowed the national security imperatives that led lawmakers to empower the agency in the first place.

They say recent world events have helped their case.

Then last week, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) credited the Patriot Act with helping to prevent a terror attack on the U.S. Capitol.

The “attack” Boehner is referring to was completely manufactured by the FBI. It was never a real threat, see:

Manufactured Terrorism – U.S. Officials Claim Credit for Stopping Another Terror Attack Created by the FBI

The fact he is so willing to shamelessly lie in order to maintain surveillance powers is simply incredible.

Critics of the spy agency were quick to question Boehner’s take on the Capitol plot.

The FBI said it relied on Twitter messages and an undercover source to gather information about the suspect, Christopher Cornell — not wiretaps or call records.

Boehner told reporters there was more to the story, but declined to get into details.

So basically Boehner’s argument comes down to “we can’t tell you why we need to spy on you, but trust us.” The fact this clown is the leader of Republicans in the House of “Representatives” tells you all you need to know.

Fortunately, not all members of the House are such slimy liars. The Hill has also reported on the bipartisan bill to dismantle the Patriot Act, known as the Surveillance State Repeal Act. Here are some excerpts:

A pair of House lawmakers wants to completely repeal the Patriot Act and other legal provisions to dramatically rein in American spying.

Reps. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) on Tuesday unveiled their Surveillance State Repeal Act, which would overhaul American spying powers unlike any other effort to reform the National Security Agency.

“This isn’t just tinkering around the edges,” Pocan said during a Capitol Hill briefing on the legislation. “This is a meaningful overhaul of the system, getting rid of essentially all parameters of the Patriot Act.”

The bill would completely repeal the Patriot Act, the sweeping national security law passed in the days after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as the 2008 FISA Amendments Act, another spying law that the NSA has used to justify collecting vast swaths of people’s communications through the Internet.

It would also reform the secretive court that oversees the nation’s spying powers, prevent the government from forcing tech companies to create “backdoors” into their devices and create additional protections for whistleblowers.

We should all do whatever we possibly can to move this bill forward, as well as thank Rep. Pocan and Rep. Massie for their efforts.

In line with my belief that Monsanto is simply evil, I re-share this "call to arms".

OPEN LETTER TO ALT. NEWS SITES EVERYWHERE REGARDING MONSANTO

Subject: College activism around the world against Monsanto

Divest Monsanto

by Jon Rappoport - Mar 25, 2015 - NoMoreFakeNews.com

Once upon a time, there was a thing called college activism that reached outside the borders of the campus and exerted enormous power.

It’s time again.

It’s long past the moment of knowing that Monsanto (and the other GMO/biotech giants) are doing great harm to human health, the land, and small farmers with their GMO crops and pesticides.

College groups need to form, and demand disinvestment from Monsanto.

This means students commanding their colleges and universities, in no uncertain terms, to get rid of every money-trace of Monsanto.

Get rid of, nullify, dump, refuse Monsanto research grants.

Cancel Monsanto-endowed chairs for professors.

Put an end to Monsanto student scholarships.

Sell off all Monsanto stock acquired through investment of college-fund monies. Likewise, cease all investment in trading institutions which in turn hold Monsanto stock.

Stop licensing university-held patents to Monsanto.

Divest. Wipe the slate clean.

Those of us who write for or publish “alternative” news sites should encourage college students to form groups for the expressed goal:

Dump Monsanto.

Make colleges Monsanto-free.

We’ve all spent time and energy researching, writing, and speaking about the crimes of Monsanto.

That research can help college students bring themselves up to speed on the truths that have been buried by the mainstream press and government cronies of Monsanto.

Why not crash the monopolist’s party?

These days, giant corporations have their hands (holding out cash) deeply embedded in college affairs.

Monsanto is an egregious example.

Suppose colleges reject that cash.

Reject Monsanto.

Are students willing?

Let’s find out.

Are they willing to dig in and discover all the sources of Monsanto money infecting their colleges?

Would they be willing to boycott professors who are being funded by Monsanto?

Let’s find out.

Can the revolt against Monsanto have activist legs on college campuses?

Is this kind of activism dead, or just dormant?

Is there is a sleeping giant who can awaken?

Let’s find out.

If just a few college groups start the ball rolling, we can give them enough global publicity and support to inform and inspire college students around the world.

Nothing to add.

Peace isn't a difficult concept. Just care about each other enough to do no harm.
It doesn't matter if they took your parking spot, or have different skin colour, or have different or no religious beliefs.
Just stop hurting each other.

I know.
You can't.
Your god told you that peace would come when everyone was converted, even if you had to kill those who wouldn't convert.

That's fucked up.
And so very sad.___Nothing to add.

It is a bit of a long read, and the references are fascinating. If you have time to muse and aren't looking for clickbait, then read on.

I am just doing what one of the beneficent voices in my head is telling me to do ... ;-)


h/t +John Rakestraw 

'Don’t Listen to the Voices!'

At any one time, inside our heads, live at least two people. One roots for us, tells us how great we are and is our greatest fan. The other, well. Suffice to say that all that one wants is to see us crash and burn just so there can be an “I told you so” moment. 

Now the entire voices debate was started by the Russians. One in particular, Lev Vygotsky: http://goo.gl/pqNsx who went as far as to suggest that until the voices actually come alive in some way, inside our heads, we are incapable of thinking: http://goo.gl/CZUmfv. 

This is a controversial theory, as you guess, what is not so controversial is the fact that the voices inside our heads represent mental representations of reality models that may help us understand the way reality itself works: http://goo.gl/mDytHa. The easiest testing ground of that theory is our reading of fiction: http://goo.gl/6XAna8. The writer’s ‘coded’ words unfurl once they pass through the filters of our experiences and perceptions into a fully-blown model of some perceived, albeit imaginary, reality. What is of even greater interest is the fact that writers themselves, the wielders of the ‘code’ are not immune from falling prey to their own magic: http://goo.gl/1U9sg2 with their characters, talking to them with a will that appears to originate from outside the writer himself. 

A little unstable as that may sound, many of us have had at least a taste of it with an imaginary friend: http://goo.gl/Tomyu, during our youth. Lev’s theories notwithstanding, as adults we seem to still hold all these conversations inside our heads, many of which sometimes go against us: http://goo.gl/XHBYQG. This is eerily reminiscent of the exam performance scores of students and minorities mentioned in our Radiolab report: http://goo.gl/CZUmfv (and if you haven’t listened to it yet, now’s the time to do so). 

You would think that as adults we’d have no problem distinguishing the ‘realness’ of a voice and what’s inside our heads but the mechanisms involved in the manifestation of this ghostly speech are actually not that different from those of physical speech itself: http://goo.gl/EtBJmm and although the brain is indeed adjusting the volume of the inner and outer voices so that it becomes easier to decide which one to choose to listen to it’s far from clear yet on why we are just not better at it (or at least outgrow it). 

Voice, however, take many manifestations: http://goo.gl/ouc7Zl and range from perceptions of the shadows of our aloneness, to a more jockey and yet somewhat compelling statement, like when +martin shervington mentions why he shared something: http://goo.gl/wP9LgJ. 

And so here we are. Full circle almost from nurture (and the voices of infantilism) to our present where our personal sociopathologies find it easier to manifest themselves through a medium where the threshold barriers of interaction are considerably lowered. 

There is a point to this journey. Our brains are complex and we are all, at some point, subject to some kind of internal negativity, to say the least. We are also quite capable of externalizing that as our constant mode of interaction simply because it feels the easiest thing to do. As Eleanor Longden says about her journey: http://goo.gl/0smR11 it is important to understand that the negative voices we hear are the ones we ought to show the most compassion to. They represent the greatest hurt and may, subconsciously, also be trying to protect us from something they see but cannot express, anxieties they cannot articulate. 

When to some degree we are each other’s ‘voices’ in the digital plane, empathy, acknowledgement, compassion and understanding go a long way towards finding a balance that works for us all. 

For my part, this Sunday, I sincerely hope the voices told you to stock up with coffee and donuts, croissants, cookies and chocolate cake and that you listened. Have one awesome Sunday, wherever you are.

_Mayday v2 begins now
In 2014, we rallied more than 50,000 Americans to support a fight for fundamental reform in the way campaigns are funded — to reduce the influence of money in politics, by increasing the influence of people in politics.
But in the campaigns, we didn’t move the ball far enough.
So in 2015, we’re doing something different. To prove that reform is possible, we need to close the gap on a majority in Congress — both Republicans and Democrats — committed to reforming the system of corruption in Washington, D.C., by changing the way campaigns are funded._

Spread Seeds far and wide! Exchange them, share them and tell each other about them.
(Hmmm.. Sounds like information on the internet.... with the same kind of opposition from govs and corps...)

Seed Libraries Are Sprouting Up Across the Planet, and Corporate Dominated Govts Are Trying to Stop Them
It’s easy to take seeds for granted. Tiny dry pods hidden in packets and sacks, they make a brief appearance as gardeners and farmers collect them for future planting then later drop them into soil. They are not “what’s for dinner,” yet without them there would be no dinner. Seeds are the forgotten heroes of food—and of life itself.

Sharing these wellsprings of sustenance may sound innocuous enough, yet this increasingly popular exchange—and wider seed access—is up against a host of legal and economic obstacles. The players in this surreal saga, wherein the mere sharing of seeds is under attack, range from agriculture officials interpreting seed laws, to powerful corporations expanding their proprietary and market control.

Information about the GOP Budget.
For goodness sakes, whenever you can, make your voice heard and VOTE.

The New Republican Party Platform

All voters should know the Republicans are #NotOnOurSide  . If you're not wealthy, then this most certainly applies to you and your families.

Are Republicans Insane Enough To Propose a Balanced Budget?

…with Republicans in full control of Congress, an adopted budget resolution will be akin to a party platform. Senate Republicans, who have to appeal to more diverse constituencies than House Republicans, several of whom must run for re-election next year in blue states, won’t be able to gloss over the particulars of what happens when you take a sledgehammer to school lunches, veterans benefits, child care tax credits, unemployment insurance and everything else that our government does for working people and the poor.

http://ourfuture.org/20150313/are-republicans-insane-enough-to-propose-a-balanced-budget

House Republicans Propose Budget With Deep Cuts

House Republicans called it streamlining, empowering states or “achieving sustainability.” They couched deep spending reductions in any number of gauzy euphemisms.

What they would not do on Tuesday was call their budget plan, which slashes spending by $5.5 trillion over 10 years, a “cut.”

The 10-year blueprint for taxes and spending they formally unveiled would balance the federal budget, even promising a surplus by 2024, but only with the sort of sleights of hand that Republicans have so often derided.

The budget — the first since Republicans regained control of Congress this year —largely reflects the four previous versions written by Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin when he was chairman of the Budget Committee.

Representative Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, the committee’s ranking Democrat, saw it differently: “This takes budget quackery to a new level.”

Without relying on tax increases, budget writers were forced into contortions to bring the budget into balance while placating defense hawks clamoring for increased military spending.

~ Sleight of Hand 1: They added nearly $40 billion in “emergency” war funding to the defense budget for next year, raising military spending without technically breaking strict caps imposed by the 2011 Budget Control Act.

~ Sleight of Hand 2: The plan contains more than $1 trillion in savings from unspecified cuts to programs like food stamps welfare, Medicare, Medicaid, and education (from Pre-K to Pell grants).

~ Sleight of Hand 3: To make matters more complicated, the budget demands the full repeal of the Affordable Care Act (no replacement mentioned), including the tax increases that finance the health care law. But the plan assumes the same level of federal revenue over the next 10 years that the Congressional Budget Office foresees with those tax increases in place — essentially counting $1 trillion of taxes that the same budget swears to repeal.

~ Sleight of Hand 4: Dynamic scoring. And still, the budget blueprint achieves balance only by counting $147 billion in “dynamic” economic growth spurred by the policies of the budget itself. dynamic scoring creates "savings" out of thin air, based  purely on highly optimistic speculation using an unproven foundation.

~ Sleight of Hand 5: Using deceitful language within the budget blueprint, there is promise to balance the budget in 10 years; however, the language describes cuts felt by million of Americans as being very positive.

What the blueprint does not say in plain language:
Domestic programs would be cut $519 billion below the already restrictive caps set in 2011. White House officials estimated that between the Affordable Care Act repeal and the cuts to Medicaid, 37 million people would lose health insurance, more than doubling the ranks of the uninsured.

Representative Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 Democrat in the House, called it “long on rhetoric and short on solution.”

What you won't see in the House GOP budget blueprint are increased revenues based on closing tax loopholes so thoroughly enjoyed by their wealthy handlers. You also won't read the word "cuts, but will instead read sentences using deceitful language.

I like to factcheck and here is the ruling to this statement from politifact,com:

Our ruling
_The Facebook graphic by OurTime.org claimed, "There is no state in the U.S. where a 40-hour minimum wage work week is enough to afford a two-bedroom apartment." The group left out a key distinction from the study they cite: Minimum wage workers can’t afford a two-bedroom apartment at Fair Market Rent, a number determined by the federal government for each region set at the 40th percentile of all rents in that area.
That means that in some areas, minimum wage earners would be able to find and afford housing that is cheaper than the Fair Market Rent. Though, in states where rent is more expensive, minimum wage earners would not be able to afford apartments even well below the Fair Market Rent.

While the land in question in Arizona is culturally significant to Native American groups such as the Apache, it is not tribal land currently belonging to them. The land is not is being "given" to a mining company; it is being traded for several other parcels, which although cumulatively larger are not valuable to the tribal groups. Use of the land adjacent to the proposed mining site would very likely be disrupted or devalued should the land swap occur as planned.

The Senate voted 85-14 to advance the NDAA on 11 December 2014, with several Republicans voicing strong opposition to the "land grab" measures attached. A final vote was expected on 12 December 2014.

If only we (women) could all agree to "walk off the job" together. It is the majority that makes the difference!

International Women's Day History

On Oct. 24, 1975, 90% of Icelandic women went on strike, refusing to do any work at their homes or their jobs. It was the largest demonstration in the nation's history and shut down the entire country. Airports were closed, schools were closed, and hospitals couldn't function. The strike had an immediate and lasting impact. The following year, Iceland's Parliament (now half women) passed a law guaranteeing women equal pay and paid maternity leave. Four years later, Iceland elected the world's first female President. And today, Iceland has the highest gender equality in the world.

Someone mentioned that insincere compliments do not have power. I say he is correct. Insincerity is not a "power" (in the sense of the comic). But- sincere complements, "random acts of kindness", "pay it forward" actions or simply small kindnesses....
They DO have power.

<< besides, the gentleman never said that the hat was beautiful to the man wearing it. It may be admired to have  the courage to wear something that someone finds ugly, and that can be admired. The gentleman said "awesome" hat. And "awesome for wearing it".  There are many things to admire... even if it take a bit o looking sometimes. >>
And yes, I am hopelessly optimistically a realist. Did I mention optimistic?

How a Mid-Sized Tennessee Town Took on Comcast, Revived Its Economy and Did it With Socialism

Even if more mergers go through, having a public option for internet, cable and phone service is always better for consumers. Chattanooga, Tennessee showed America just that, by providing municipal broadband internet to residents.

Published: March 4, 2015 | Authors: Carl Gibson | NationofChange | News Report

Chattanooga, Tennessee has provided a model for all American towns who want to see their economies and populations grow quickly. 

And that model is simple – give sub-par internet providers like Comcast some legitimate competition with publicly-owned municipal broadband networks.

“People understand that high-speed Internet access is quickly becoming a national infrastructure issue just like the highways were in the 1950s,” 

Chattanooga mayor Andy Berke told CNN Money. “If the private sector is unable to provide that kind of bandwidth because of the steep infrastructure investment, then just like highways in the 1950s, the government has to consider providing that support.”

If you’re sick of having only one cable/internet company in your town and have horror stories about dealing with a global corporation that has a monopoly and doesn’t care about you, you aren’t the only one. 

According to a 2011 survey by the FCC, 61 percent of Americans have only one cable and internet provider to choose from. 

And in 2012, Comcast and Time Warner both ranked in the top ten most hated companies. 

Comcast even took home Consumerist’s grand prize of Worst Company in America in 2010 and 2014. 

This call between an exasperated Comcast customer just trying to cancel his service and a Comcast rep insisting that he keep the service he doesn’t want captures how a lot of Americans feel about monopoly cable providers like Comcast.

Even after the FCC voted to uphold net neutrality and classify internet as a public utility, it’s still expected that Comcast’s proposed merger with Time Warner will be approved by the end of this month, with “company-specific” regulations. 

This would likely mean that most Americans, who either only have Comcast or Time Warner cable in their area, will be stuck dealing with the same company that treats them like dirt. 

74 percent of Americans surveyed by the Consumer Reports National Research Center feared higher prices, and 66 percent feared poorer customer service. 

And as the potential Comcast-Time Warner megacorporation is allowed to grow larger, expect it to gobble up the smaller remaining cable providers to become the only game in town for the rest of America.

However, by providing municipal broadband internet to residents, Chattanooga, Tennessee, has shown America the best way to beat back Comcast, even if the merger goes through.

In 2008, Chattanooga formed the Electric Power Board, which is a public utility company owned by the city’s taxpayers. 

The EPB got right to work building a “smart grid” to better service the city’s power needs in the event of outages, and to provide super-fast, fiber-optic internet to everyone in the city, which launched in September of 2009. 

Since its launch, the EPB’s network has proven to be 50 times faster than the average American’s internet connection, delivering 1 gigabit of information per second. 

A 2-hour video that normally takes 25 minutes to download on a regular broadband network would only take 33 seconds to download on Chattanooga’s network. 

And like other cable providers, EPB offers TV, internet, and phone service as a bundle, and for less than Comcast charges.

Naturally, Comcast and other privately-owned cable companies tried to sue Chattanooga for daring to compete with them. 

But with the help of a $111 million grant from President Obama’s federal stimulus package, The EPB was formed out of necessity – city officials figured that if Comcast was the only game in town, they would have little incentive to invest money in beefing up its infrastructure to provide reliable service and faster internet to customers. 

In fact, Verizon FiOs already said it would stop building out its network in 2013.

“It just didn’t look like the private sector was going to bring true, high-speed connectivity to this market,” EPB spokeswoman Danna Bailey told CNN Money.

Now, Chattanooga’s investment in fast internet infrastructure is paying big economic dividends. 

NerdWallet rated Chattanooga the 6th best city for economic growth for 2009 to 2012, the years immediately following its decision to invest in high-speed public broadband network. 

In that same time frame, median household income in Chattanooga grew by 13.5 percent and home values increased by 14 percent. 

This growth happened despite cruel austerity measures imposed by Tennessee’s right-wing state government that resulted in roughly 3,000 jobs lost in the government and construction sectors. 

However, new businesses are rapidly locating to Chattanooga, eager to capitalize on the fastest internet in the United States.

Volkswagen opened a new plant in Chattanooga in 2011, and recently added an SUV line to the factory, creating another 2,000 jobs. 

Claris Networks, an 85-person company, moved its data center from Knoxville to Chattanooga “just because of the network,” according to company representative Hunter Lindsay in CNN Money. 

The New York Times mentions how Toni Gemayel, owner of a software startup in Tampa, moved his company to Chattanooga after the rollout of the high-speed municipal network. 

QuickCue, a company that began in Chattanooga in 2011 to help restaurants digitize their processes, grew so successful that OpenTable, a similar company with a larger market share, bought it for $11 million in 2013.

Chattanooga’s EPB didn’t cut have to cut out Comcast and impose its own monopoly – it’s simply beating them with faster internet and superior customer service. 

Online reviews for the two companies in Chattanooga speak for themselves. 

Comcast’s services in Chattanooga have an average rating of one star on Yelp. 

However, Google reviews of EPB’s services are overwhelmingly positive.

“The product itself is very poor. Internet is spotty and unreliable, to say the least. We regularly clocked download speeds of 3 MB/second…agonizingly slow,” Rusty W. wrote in a 1-star Yelp review of Comcast’s Chattanooga services in January of 2014. 

“I’m nominating Comcast for the Worst “Customer Service” in the history of customer service award. Zero respect for their customers’ time… I could go on and on, but Comcast offers the best punch line. 

Their advertising campaign says “Don’t fall for EPB!”  

What a joke. 

Just try Comcast. 

You won’t “fall” for EPB, you’ll RUN to EPB!”

“Never going to back comcast. Only ever written about 2 reviews in my life but sooo happy with EPB I had to!” wrote Jen T. in a 5-star Google review of EPB’s services in July of 2014. 

“Customer service is super helpful (and local).”

“EPB puts At&t and Comcast to shame. 

Once you switch you will never go back,” wrote Kyle Simpson in another 5-star review of Chattanooga’s public internet provider last August. 

“If EPB doubled their rates and the other guys offered service for free, EPB would still be the better value.”

“Never going back to Comcast! 

Have had my net connection through epb for 2 years and have never had a outage,” Robert Bell wrote in March of 2013. 

He also gave the company 5 stars.

What’s already a reality for Chattanooga may become a reality for more cities and towns in the coming years – the FCC recently overturned local laws in North Carolina and Tennessee, lobbied for by big cable companies, that make it harder for municipalities to create their own broadband networks. 

Chattanooga has proven to everyone else that having a public option for internet, cable, and phone service is better for consumers. 

And though the big companies would never admit it, the competition that socialist local broadband networks provide is the heart of the free-market capitalism they claim to espouse.

True. Somewhat redacted so that it fits, but it does reflect what Truman said on 13 October 1948, when President Harry Truman made an appearance in St. Paul, Minnesota. He spoke at the city's Municipal Auditorium and the speech was carried on a nationwide radio broadcast.
