Having so few choices in Louisville, KY for your Internet and television content needs, it makes you wonder how a company like Time Warner Cable is not seen as a monopoly. It’s only going to become worse if they are allowed to merge with Comcast as, in response to that, DirecTV and AT&T have been considering their own merger. These companies, except for perhaps DirecTV Internet, have some of the very worst in package deals that a company could ever offer a consumer. Seriously. The United States has always been a beacon of high technology and yet here we are being stifled by these companies who want nothing more than their lions’s share of the profits as they punish the United States and us, the consumers and citizens of this great nation, by charging us more than nearly any other Asian country in terms of how much MB/speed is going to cost a customer. In fact, many nations have free Internet which is far better than what we have.
We paid for the digital infrastructure that they are utilizing. Continue reading We Need More Diverse Options
When I decided to look into motor trade in the uk, I was really thankful that there was a section of their website that answered all of my questions. I was planning on opening my own car lot and garage, but I knew that I needed to get insurance first before I did this. I was just going to have too many cars under my responsibility, and I needed to make sure that they were sufficiently covered. I also knew that I was going to have at least 10 employees, and any one of them could be driving cars from one location to another.
Because of this, I was not sure if they were all automatically covered under my insurance policy or if I needed to add each one individually to it. Continue reading It Was Easy to Get Coverage
Quebec continues to show disagreement with government plans to hike post secondary education tuition costs. The proposed hike would mean that students pay up to seventy-five percent more over the next seven years. Many protests have taken place, and students, government workers and union members are not opposed to expressing their disagreement.
While we all realize the importance of a post secondary education, and no one wants to see prices increase, a middle ground needs to be found in this case. The cost of education continues to rise, with rising costs of facilities, staff, updated technology and other educational supplies. Someone must pay for this, whether it be the tax payers, the schools or the students themself. Avoiding these costs all together is impossible, and it would result in a substandard educational system that students would not be happy with and thus, would likely protest.
While the explanation for the need for this law is simple enough, it is also easy to see the other side. Continue reading The Opposition to Bill 78
Quebec has a rich history of socialist parties and people working actively to advance social democracy ideals such as worker’s rights and universal healthcare. As far back as the early 20th century, Canada has seen so-called leftist parties and activist groups protesting, organizing for political purposes and running candidates for office.
A number of groups came and went in those early days, including the Socialist Party of Canada, the Communist Party of Canada, the Canadian Labour Congress and more recent parties widely considered radical because of their differences with mainstream left and right parties.
