re: FCC's Broadband Plan: What Would Steve Jobs Think?
First of all, I lived in Montana for 7 years, so I do have some idea what conditions are like in other areas. (You are obviously ignorant about my backround and experience). Yes, I like to eat, and I pay for food to be transported from those rural areas (that is included in the price I pay). By living in a populated area, I have to put up with the overcrowding those rural subscribers don't have to. My daily commute to work involves more traffic then I ever dealt with in Montana. So I pay a price for the proximity of these services. No matter where you live, there are advantages and disadvantages, some monetary, some of convenience, and you can get in a big never ending cycle when groups have to start compensating each other for the disadvantages they all have.
In New Jersey, because of the demand for housing here, I pay a lot more for it here than I did in Montana, and I get a lot less. That is the cost of living here. You are obviously ignorant of that too.
Bottom line, you are ignorant that life is a series of tradeoffs, deal with it.
