Verizon Ready to "Kill Copper" and Take Hostages
The main pilot program rolled out in Fire Island, NY, post-Sandy [shock doctrine opportunity.] Sandy damaged all the copper lines and Verizon has a monopoly for copper phone service in Fire Island. Instead of fixing the existing phone lines, Verizon -- eager to find opportunities to roll our "Voice Link" -- an ObamaCare like product that is expensive, does not work and causes life-threatening and working-people's-economy threatening things -- tells Fire Islanders take our "Voice Link" or get lost. And the NY Public Service Commission is "considering" Verizon's request to kill all copper and force its customers to buy this defective, overpriced product -- in all it's markets. I'm shocked that the PSC would even consider this proposal instead of rejecting it out of hand, given it's documented and enormous damage to the public interest.
Watch this play out in all our towns, hamlets, cities and rural areas.
I see this as an event releated to the killing of the Post Office, most recently with this catastrophic plan to "kill local post offices" and force granny and everyone else to trek god knows how far to new "centers." Also, as related to ObamaCare and the government forcing Americans to buy a defective expensive product that will only benefit private insurers and the "creative classes" supporting this fraudulent marketing scam.
But I'm still trying to figure out how to articulate the connection. I know it has something to do with vital public services being taken over and destroyed to the profit of private Kleptocrats and to the great dis-humanization of the rest of us, the unterbussen. Also, how knowing that these measures inflict huge, structural and permanent dis-enfranchisement, the perpetrators (Verizon's CEO, the assholes hiding behind the "committees" fixing to steal our Post Office, Obama with his forced consumption of FrankenCare plans) literally look at us and laugh, as if enjoying the spectacle of destroying every thread of our society, one citizen at a time.
