Re: "Wall Street punished us for investing in FIOS." If those "socialists" are beating us it is mostly because they are in a growing economy as opposed to our stagnant one.
In any case, these broad anti-corporation sentiments are just as careless as the pro government as the solution sentiments. Ive got some news for you --- its all people folks. Governments, corporations, they are all made up of many, many people. They are equally subject to the temptations of power and money (essentially the same thing).
I personally love my fios. Its the best broadband and TV quality Ive ever had. Its a shame that Verizon has abandoned it. And if there is possibility they have colluded with the cable providers then the FCC should take a serious look. But make no mistake, if wall street wasnt ready to support financing the billions it would take to continue the fios build out then thats just the facts.
